I don't have any quams about coming away from Edinburgh with a point. Didn't see the game personally but I see KVV getting some stick over on some of the Facebook pages. Is it deserved?

Taking a point from Edinburgh is never a bad thing. Thoroughly enjoyed watching us at times today. Created some good chances, unlucky to not have scored more and probably lucky not to have conceded another.

A point fair in the end and keeps the momentum going.

Some wonderful marking by Bevis at Hibs goal, just let the man run in behind you!!!. Now if that was our captain, stand by for pelters for O'Donnell, only saying!!.

Honestly I’m not sure it was, O’Donnell seems to take more stick at times because he’s an international player. Expectations on him are always higher and everything he does is scrutinised.  Players are with Motherwell because they have their limitations, they would not be with us otherwise. Nominations for player of the month include Bevis, Goss, and Lamie, all have improved but all have mistakes and inconsistency in them. I think the majority of the squad this season are decent players, we don’t actually have many complete duds and I can live with that.

We should have been 2 up before they scored, with cornelius' chance when clean through the closest. Mugabi should have attacked the cross for their goal, the build up was well worked, but the cross wasn't that good.

Van Veen was his usual frustrating self, and was lucky to escape a 2nd yellow just before going off. Woolery didn't get as many chances to run at Hibs as he did against Utd, but Hibs did a decent job of nullifying him. Watt was pretty sloppy up until his goal, giving the ball away in dangerous positions a couple of times, which is uncharacteristic of him. However, despite that we created plenty of chances and it was am excellent finish for our goal.

Playing a chunk of the game with four full backs was interesting, I thought Carroll did well in the circumstances, and McGinley had a solid game too. Didn't think at any point this season we'd be struggling to have two fit center backs. At least it's only Celtic next week.

Overall it's a point I'd have been happy with before the game, and I think it was fair on the balance of the game. Porteous is way overrated too.

Just back. Managed to get parked right outside the stand after being 15 minutes late due to horrendous Edinburgh traffic. I thought we should have been at least 4  goals up in that first half if we didnt shoot straight at the keeper every time. Their goal was against the run of play but well taken. Bevis just a bit slow to get in front of his man. I won't criticise too much as thats his first mistake in god knows how many games. The central defence injuries are a big worry for the game against Celtic

Top entertainment when the hibs fans set off their flare which then set fire to their own flag and they all promptly got the jail. :D

Get a grip sometimes you have to admire the cross and movement of the forward. We got a well deserved point and performed well.  Strength in depth as well finished with Carrol at CB and played all match with Cornelius who has played very little first team league games

In all honesty I’d rather we lose players against Celtic than against opposition we tend to gain more points from in general. Maybe that’s the old firm negativity kicking in again but historical stats don’t lie.

Ryogo Porteous actually threw his arm back over Carroll's shoulder then stopped dead to try and win a pen. 

An absolute prick of a player.

yes he has plenty ability but is too keen to over elaborate and piss about, he wants to beat 3 / 4 men when the easy ball is on. His finishing when clear cut opportunities arise is mediocre over the season. Not saying hes not worth a place in the squad but big improvements required in parts of his game

Just checked bbc stats and shots on target is 5 for us and 4 for Hibs seemed like they had more but apparently not

Shots crashing off the bar are not on target

Thought the Bois were on top form today. Hardly stopped singing all afternoon, even when we were behind.

That’s the spirit  :danced:

Who is the 4th one? Sol, Lamie, Ojala and ??

As Yabba's Turd says, its O'Connor. Hopefully at least one recovers quickly.
