Hard Times for Hibs

Hibs have found it hard to put points on the board over the last few weeks. Hard fought draws or defeats have seen Hibs drop down the table to ninth place.

Only a month ago we were looking to secure third place but so tight is the SPL outwith Rangers and Celtic that anyone who strings a few wins together can shoot up the table.

Stephen Fletcher rescued a point last week deep into injury time against Aberdeen at Easter Road. This followed close on the heels of defeats to Inverness and Dundee Utd.

Tomorrows opponents are Motherwell who are not having the best of seasons either. Three points would be most welcome but I will not be betting much money on a Hibs win.

The latest rumour around Easter Road that Stephen Fletcher is off to the English Premiership, Blackburn are said to be interested. I would imagine £2 to £3 milllion will be required to prise him from Easter Road.

Just another in a long line of players to leave Hibs for pastures new, at least Hibs bank balance is looking good.

I hope to be posting good news tomorrow.

Good luck to the Ankara teams as well.

  1. Lots of positives from Mixu and his assistant about morale being high and Hibs going in the right direction, etc.

    However, as I've said in my previous Ankaragucu posts, it's points that count and Hibs must start with THREE today in Motherwell.

    A sad day down Leith way if Fletcher goes at this stage of the season. Of course he is ambitious and I don't deny him the chance to strut his stuff on a bigger stage, but this is not the time to make that move.

    Kenny Miller and Riordan mistimed their moves and look what happened to them !

    For Hibs to qualify for the UEFA Cup this season is a MUST DO !!
