2018/19 Game 22: Hibernian (H) Wednesday 23rd January

Recommended Posts

From someone at the game or watching, is there better football, or is it still hoofball? This from a fan of the Babes who only played football.

According to the BBC, we have 27% possession for the first half. Is that even close ? Can't see the game so on BBC text and here for updates :-/

Better football.

Still a few times when they have punted instead of passing, but better than Saturday.

I noticed that too. We must have been bad.

Said ariyibi was a player on Saturday and proving it once again. Good to see Hastie playing who I think is far better than Frear!

Better football is always good to watch.  Anything like Saturday would cause a riot.

I found out recently that companies like Opta that measure these things just count the number of passes each team makes rather than how long each team has the ball. So they can look a bit weird sometimes.

We have easily been the better and more dangerous team so far.

According to the Beeb

 

"This is a vastly different Motherwell performance from their Scottish Cup exit on Saturday. The Steelmen have had Hibs pinned back for most of the first half and David Turnbull’s wonderfully composed finish was the icing on the cake.

Gboly Ariyibi and Jake Hastie have terrorised the visiting defenders down the flanks and it was the latter who set up the goal.

Hibs’ new signings have been fairly quiet. Stephane Omeonga is on a booking and is naturally taking a while to adapt to the speed of the Scottish game. Ryan Gauld started brightly but saw less of the ball as the half went on."

Same for me, but I was able to switch to the backup player and it's all good.

While I look at the stats, there is only one that counts. Shots on goal and corners might help, but possession means nothing. If passes counted Henderson at Liverpool is the best, but that's only because he's petrified he might have to do something with the ball if he keeps if for more than three seconds. More goals than the other team seems like the best measure for me in the long run. Bring back the Weir, Hunter, Saint, Quinn and Andy Weir any day!!!

Not even close, good old BBC. Hibs with slightly more possession I’d say.....Football has been better with Gorrin & Turnbull in particular trying to keep it on the deck. Both Gboly and Hastie looking really dangerous at times....Hibs struggling to get in behind.

Ayirbi has obviously been telling fibs that he's a dead ball specialist....

He's versatile, though. Can hit them poorly from either wing.

Hibs decided they just need to kick us (and elbow us) into submission this half.

Allan Campbell has been fantastic tonight but he's absolutely burst, please change it Robbo.

Great ball from Turnbull to Sammon there. If that's a Rangers or Celtic player Sportscene are creaming over that.
