Hibs Lose SPL Opener

Hibs did not enjoy the best of pre-seasons, one draw and seven defeats had the Hibs faithful worrying about the season ahead.

Our worries came to fruition on Saturday when Hibs lost to Kilmarnock by a single goal. Although Hibs played the better football, a lack of vision to create chances cost them dear when Kilmarnock scored on 80 minutes when Hibs were down to ten men due to injuries.

The few chances Hibs did create were passed up with poor finishing or bad luck. Colin Nish was the main offender electing to pass the ball into the keepers arms rather than an open goal.

There are a few fans getting restless already but hopefully big Mixu will get it right by the next game. I don't think there is much between any of the teams outside the old firm, even they do not look up to much as Rangers are already out of Europe. Shame!

Heres hoping to three points next week.

  1. Hmmmmmm not an auspicious start to the season Hibbie Kanka.

    Losing to Barca, Boro and even Wigan (who ??) is only just acceptable, but .... Killeffinmarnock ??? No !!

    As I said in the next post concerning Ankaragucu, it is time for Hibs to get their show on the road next weekend against Ffffffalkirk !
