4 out of 6 for the Hibees

Four points out of six for Hibs in their last two games against Hearts at home and Dunfermline away.

In the derby at Easter Road it finished 2-2, a disappointing result for Hibs considering Zemama and Killen had put Hibs two up after 20 minutes. Hearts then pulled a goal back after a bad blunder from the Hibs keeper. The game then seemed to swing back into Hibs favour in the second half when Hearts were reduced to ten men but another mistake from our keeper allowed Hearts the equaliser. I never managed to get to the game but my sons tell me it was end to end and the sell out crowd kept up the atmosphere from start to finish.

Last night saw Hibs back to winning ways with a 4-0 win at Dunfermline. This was a game that could have been twice as bad for Dunfermline but a combination of poor finishing from Hibs and good saves from the Dunfermline keeper kept the score to 1-0 at half time. Three goals in the second half made the game safe for Hibs but although there was the odd shot from Dunfermline it was a comfortable evening for Hibs. Ivan Sproule was the man of the match with on egoal and one assist. The poor Dunfermline left back will be having nightmares about Sproule for a long while.

Still no news on the new Hibs manager, lots of people wanting the stand in manager (Proctor) to get the job but we can not get carried away after just one good result. I would like to see him given till January and if results have not been good get someone else in.

Hibbee Kanka


  1. Well done The Mighty Hibees !! More of the same in Sheep Shagging country next week will do nicely !!

    Concerning the management subject, I still believe we need a young track-suit manager and coach. Therefore, I'm still going with Gareth Evans (presently manager of Brechin City).

    Controversial perhaps, but as I know him personally, I believe he is up for it.

  2. Yes, a good weekend all round for Ankaragucu, Genclerbirligi and Hibernian.

    However, I'm sure Train Spotting Kanka Andrew is still crying into his Guinness after Coventry Shitty stuffed it up the Glass House Boys (Colchester Disunited for the uninitiated !!).
