    I honestly don't get the impression that many people are getting carried away with a couple of wins or that anybody thinks we're the finished article.

    Seems like most of the positive comments have been quite realistic, basically just appreciating that we have improved a bit, both in results and style.

    I'm personally not convinced by LJ's dress sense, but I suppose you can't have everything.

    Nisbet won't get back in the team.
    I donít think heíll be ready to start this side of the World Cup break. After being out so long , itís going to take a bit to find his feet, and then be good enough to get back into the team

    Has everyone forgotten about Roy Keane?
    Forgot about him .I'd rather have McKay or McInnes to him .Hell I'd even have Dolores Keane instead of him .what a Disaster that would have been. Really shocked me was how many wanted him on here. Thought they were just taking the p**s in the end up.

    [On January 20, 2022, Mueller made his debut for Hibernian, he was allowed to return to the US in May 2022.
    Hibs chief executive Ben Kensell said that Mueller had struggled to "adapt to the pace and physicality" of Scottish football.]
    Ben maybe being diplomatic.

    Personally,i think he also was surprised, if not shocked ,at the levels of fitness needed to compete here.

    Or he may have just been homesick for buffalo wings and Wendy's eggs benedict !
    I think the fitness thing is probably not too far off, and probably links into the physicality aspect. I couldnít believe some of the stuff he came out with regarding fitness and gym work (or lack of) in the States when he first came over.

    Not in the near future But if he gets himself match fit and stats fit he will surely get the opportunity to stake his claim

    Iíll be more than happy when everyone is fit. It means everyone needs to be on top of their game or they might lose their starting place!

    ďItís a blessing and a curse. The passion and opinion that comes with it is a blessing, but if you lose your focus itís a curse. You can feel mini vendettas because of the intensity of playing each other so many times plus the media exposure. You can get sucked into that.Ē

    Thatís why heís consciously stayed out of the sequels to five red cards being dished out to opposition players this season. What he wonít accept is that itís fortune favouring Hibs. ďI havenít watched Soccerscene [Sportscene, the BBCís highlights show], apart from once ó after the Aberdeen game ó and now I know why I donít watch it.

    ďI was listening to [pundit] Mikey Stewart, I havenít got a problem with him, but he was like ĎWhat is the identity? Hibs have played against teams that have had a man sent offí.

    ďIíd say that our good play creates the sending-offs. When you play the ball over the top and [Martin] Boyle gets in behind against a slowish defender and he pulls him down, thatís worked on. When [Liam] Scales takes down Josh Campbell when he does a little trick with quick feet, thatís skill, when we isolate for the [Ryan] Porteous one-on-one with a defender ...

    ďIíd say a lot of those sending-offs have been down to skill, fitness, tactics and not just because somebody has turned round and smacked someone like the [Alfredo] Morelos one [against Rangers]. You try and create threats and problems for the opponent and do a lot of work on isolating your strengths versus their weaknesses, whether thatís a set play or a ball over the top because you have elongated the pitch and made penetrative runs.

    ďThatís my point. Itís not fluke thatís happened. We are not telling players to cheat at all, but we are working on these things.Ē
    Scottish by birth. Hibee by the grace of God.

    The knee jerk reaction after the league cup debacle was OTT. Clearly needed time to implement his ideas and style. Not new after taking on a team low on confidence. Look at Ange with Celtic last season.

    Even when we weren't getting the results in August the late goals against Hearts/Rangers showed me he's instilled a never say die attitude. Once the team clicked those two combined are a useful combination.

    It's early days but promising signs. If all our injuries clear we'll take some stopping.

    It's very refreshing, he isn't part of the usual don't really say anything school of thought and he speaks his mind and his view, but in a calm, balanced and fairly honest way.

    Totally agree with you . LJ speaks very well unlike someone else we know. Btw there's a story in the Scotsman titled something like"Lee Johnson's Hibs have turned a corner just as he predicted they would"

    Our percentage of chances taken is about half everyone else's. Need to start firing them in, which I'm sure will happen.

    I've ben saying it for weeks now but when it clicks for us infront of goal we are going to absolutley batter someone. We are winning games comfortably without converting many of the numerous chances we make. Wouldn't surprise me if we hit 5 or 6 in the next couple of weeks.

    Perhaps the next couple of games. At home to Well or away to Dundee Utd perhaps. Fixtures after those seem less likely.

    To be honest I'll just be happy if we keep up the good form.
