No Xmas Cheers for Hibs

Two defeats so far this Christmas for Hibs, first a 1-0 defeat to Rangers followed by a 4-2 home defeat to Kilmarnock.

Hibs went through to Glasgow with another negative formation and frustrated Rangers for over an hour before Kris Boyd pulled out something a bit special to unlock Hibs defence. Boyd met a cross with a overhead kick leaving Makalamby with no chance.

Towards the end of the game Hibs became a bit more adventurous and created a couple of half chances but to be honest they did not deserve anything from the game.

Next up was Kilmarnock at home and we all expected to see a more entertaining game. I even brought along all four mini Hibbee Kankas in anticipation of a goal feast. Unfortunately four of the six goals ended up in the Hibs net.

Hibs had found themselves two down after 10 minutes before rallying back to 2-2 with two penalties. The second penalty resulted in the Kilmarnock keeper being sent off. All this before half time.

We all expected to see Hibs pressurise the Killie defence but they never seemed to have a clue how to deliver the killer pass. In the end Killie hit Hibs on the break and actually deserved the points.

Hibs will have to be better next Saturday when the first of two derbies takes place.

Merry Christmas


  1. You took four kids to a football match! I find just taking Little Oz Kanka to the footy to be difficult, let alone four.

  2. I hope Hibbie Kanka took enough tissues to wipe away the tears of the little darlings at the end of the match ??!!

    Very disappointing home performance from Hibs and most defo the shock result of the day.

    Seems to me that all their best performances this season have been against more fancied teams. So, using my famous footie logic, it could mean that Hibs will beat Hearts in the league this weekend and in the Cup the following weekend !!

    That's Ankaragucu optimism for you !!
