We asked your opinion on Hibs’ 2-1 home win against St Mirren on Saturday.
Here’s what you said:
Fergis: Good first half and totally controlled game. Never got going in the second half with the usual panic stations in the final 15 minutes after St Mirren’s goal. The back four was solid and Joe Newell had a great game. We should have been a lot more comfortable but still a great three points and fourth place within reach.
George: Good three points and managed not to throw away two or three points because of bad finishing work or too many defensive bloomers or goalie gaffs. Next Pittodrie…we’ll see. jury out at the moment.
Martin: A game of two halves. First half over them, second we could have lost. No idea why Lee Johnson made so few changes until late. At the end of the day, three points. We’re still not sure if he’s the right man for us, but we still have Europe in our sights.
Kieron: We started the game brilliantly, played very well, pushed St. Mirren out of their comfort zone and were 2-0 up at half-time. But then we just dropped it in the second half, with bad decisions, limp passes and St Mirren made it a physical game and almost threw away three points. Needed more consistency over 90 minutes.
Stefan: Super first half, should have been more up front, second half different team. Allowed St. Mirren into the game and a nervous finish. But it was all about the three points. Looking good now for a European location.
Anonymous: Won first of five cup finals.
Paul: In the first half, Hibs St Mirren dominated and pressed well. When the opportunity arose, Elie Youan composed brilliantly and achieved a quality finish. Hibs once again lacked a clean finish in and around the box as both Chris Cadden and Kevin Nisbet missed chances to extend the lead. We’ll just forget about the second half. Did LJ forget to use subs?
John: Appearance of Jekyll and Hyde. First half great, second half bad. The back four was excellent and Newell once again showed his worth to the team. Nisbet might not want to see his miss repeated.
Alan: The first half was as strong a 45-minute performance as I’ve seen from Hibs. Credit to St Mirren for flying out of traps in the second half but I’m baffled why Johnson hasn’t changed staff at a time when St Mirren dominated. Hibs have shown a bit of steel in recent games but changes were needed earlier.
