Willie Collum has killed this game in the first minute, we can never catch a break

Na, we’ve done it to ourselves, it’s too easy to just blame Callum. Rash challenge that gave him a decision to make then terrible defending.

45 minutes with the wind at our back shooting into the Well Bois end.

 

You know what? I believe!

That first goal gets worse everytime you see it,that's shocking defending from mcginley to get beaten so easy.

Get McGinlay off and put a right back on to protect that wing. Change Donnelly for a more energetic midfielder. The front three are doing OK considering.

It was a yellow card but when we have collum refereeing our games then it was always going to be a red,he's a wank of the highest order,just like craig thomson you know what's coming before the game even starts.

Mugabi should never be playing right midfield -  or his position , he’s a big strong centre half - can’t believe he should ever be in that postponing 

such a stupid , needless challenge . Gave the ref a decision to make .

Agreed,mcginley could drop a clanger at any minute and donnelly isn't mobile enough to be in a team with 10 men.we need to defend our box better and any opportunities in and around the box we need to be shooting.the first time a hibs player dives into a challenge our player should be going down like they were shot and give that wee fud collum something to think about.

 Not a fan of the line up to start with, Mugabi then goes in with a very rash challenge which while it might divide opinion was stupid, yes he was stretching but he did catch Doig who had to go off. Roberts then gives him another decision to make within 5 minutes. The defending has been dreadful all first half, McGinely and Ojala both to blame for the goals and they could well have had more. I’m probably as sick as I’ve been for a good while given the standard of the opposition, they can’t buy a goal but could easily have had four in the first half and that’s down to the manager and players, not the ref.

It was borderline for me and a yellow at worst but with that ref in charge,we are always risking a red with tackles like that.i totally agree though it was needless to go in like that in a position on the field where there was no danger to us.

Every challenge for the ball all over the park gives the referee a decision to make, foul or not. Do we not challenge for the ball any more because it might be a foul?

 

The stupidity of that phrase is astounding.

Lamie down incredibly easily, but keeper elbowed him.
Violent conduct and a red.

Hibs are just as bad as us,so that feels like one that's got away.the ref has cost us upto a point but you can't concede the soft goals that we did today no matter if you have 11 players on the park.

We were always in the game with that hibs defence, and we did well to mitigate the sending off. We should have used our subs earlier though, there were a few that were dead on their feet.

Fuck knows what mugabi was thinking with that challenge, he deserves the Carrol treatment for selling the jerseys. Roberts was lucky, considering who the ref was, but his did look more clumsy than reckless. Jasper should have had a second yellow as well. The thing with their keeper was dumb, lamie waited too long to go down.

Fair play to Donnelly for levelling Jasper late in the second half, he seemed a lot quieter after that. I though he was decent.

I don't expect to see Ojala next season.

We offer zero as an attacking team. 

Had Mugabi stayed on I don't believe anything would have beeb different. 

Our style of play disgusts me, very hard to watch and other than having badly time challenges offered little in entertainment. 

We have some decent (fish) footballers who simply don't get a game.  I've had more than enough of the GA regime.

Hard lines. Who knows how it would have panned out if wasn’t for the red card which was the right decision. We rightly went out with a plan to be aggressive but Mugabi, and Roberts by the looks of it, went too far. 

Nevertheless, there was enough about hat performance to give me confidence that we can still finish the season well. I was pleased to see Donnelly respond so well to the recent criticism. At the other end of he scale though, McGinley was weak and Ojala looks more and more a liability each week.
