Hibbees of to a Flyer

Hibs kicked off their new season with a difficult away trip to Tynecastle to face local rivals Hearts.

It was a pretty poor game with both teams failing to hit the form of last season. Despite Hibs taking the lead after only two minutes through new signing Kerr, they fell out of the game towards halftime.

Benji was introduced for the second half and the difference was imediate. Hibs were finally able to move the ball forward where Benji would collect, hold onto it before distributing to supporting midfielders. This enabled Hibs to build some better attacks. Throughout the second half Hibs created the better chances while Hearts held the larger share of posession.

The game should have finished with Hearts throwing everything at Hibs as they looked for the equaliser but by this time the home crowd were abusing there own team and a great start for Hibs was assured.

Suffice to say whether it is the first game of the season or the last, its always good to stick it up the Hearts.

Glory to the Hibbees.

  1. Always a great pleasure to (using Maniac Kanka's expression !) `fuck` the Jambos !!!

    Interesting to note that Yves Kalimbay (Hibs new Belgian signing from Chelsea) has now registered his 5th `shut-out` in succession.

    Newly promoted Gretna must be quivvering in fear at the prospect of visiting Easter Road Stadium next weekend !!
