Season 2020’21: Game 5 Hamilton Accies (H)

The front three have been very poor. 

same as most weeks to be honest. 

We have majority of ball but little cutting edge.   I can't see how playing the same formation every week will produce anything different to what we've seen in the last few games.

With Accies sitting in we need to spend less time passing the ball in front of them and more time hitting the by-line to get some crosses in.

9/2. Nex week's training should be simply shooting at that space inside the woodwork! I'm only half kidding.

I think we can improve a fair bit on the Hibs performance but I dont see where there were major flaws.

I'd say not being able to score a goal was a major flaw.

Accies are sitting so deep. Think the break will come through grinding them down, getting a cutting edge against a team playing so compact is easier said than done.

Midfield has been good again. Front 3 have been awful. White off at ht surely....

Defensively untroubled, midfield absolutely dominant, final third non-existant

Up to a point. On one or two occasions we've looked vulnerable when defending, especially on the left.

Story of the season - no cutting edge.

70% possession and double figure shots.

I should be happy with such dominance but actually is is painful. 

You can understand a one off game with such stats but all of our games and we are not scoring. We have defence and midfield sorted but a mile away up front. White is a poor mans Higdon. The fact he is playing ahead of Long and Watt says all we need to know.

Utter rubbish if we can't get a centre in that can hold the ball up this is what we will watch all season . The big guy White widnae get a game wae a good amateur team

Centre midfield has been ok, in possession, but lacked creativity in feeding White and the 2 wide men. They need to get the ball out wide that bit quicker and let Lang and Seedorf hit the by line.

As things stand, the game could easily go either way.

I know a long shot but would it be worth seeing if Leigh Griffiths was available on loan?

No chance of getting Leigh Griffiths.

There is chat of Livingston picking up Anthony Stokes.  Not sure what our fans would make of that but there has to be someone out there with a similar goal scoring pedigree.

No idea why we are persevering with White has the touch of an elephant and gives fouls away constantly surely time for Long to get another chance or Watt to be given a chance our strikers been brutal so far this season

White pretty much giving what I expected, not a lot.  But disappointed in Contribution from Lang. Seidorf, needs to be a bit more alert. Maybe give them another 10 mins then put long on for white.

White's just not good enough, I could understand him being in there if we had wingers who hit the byline and got balls into the box but we don't and as a result we're really struggling up top. Get Long on and get him running in behind.

Before the match today 17% of our shots have been on target.  League average is between 30 - 40%.  

Obviously we are by miles the worst.

It's not big Jordan's fault but again I would ask questions of our scouting system..  Hibs scout championship and signed Nisbet, we sign White.  However score the winner and I will eat my words...COYW

The problem is I don’t think White was brought in as a starter, that was a fight between Long and Watt and clearly neither are impressing although the service from midfield has been very poor at times. A front three of Lang, Hastie, and Watt or Long had great potential and it’s simply not panned  out that way. I worry that Watt is just repeating the attitude shown at other clubs, starts off well, new contract and then goes backwards. Long just looks like a player that reluctantly signed a new contract when he really wanted to be back down south. As I say looking at last season adding another back up central striker plus Lang and Hastie should be working, we all more or less thought it would but it’s simply not happening.

Jordan White is an utter donkey. 

Callum Lang is basically the same player as Long. Wants to shoot every time.
