Neilson - 4 - His distribution was scary to say the least.

Karipidis - 8 - Outstanding 2nd half. Held things together at the back.

Cesnauskis - 5 - Drifted out of the game after his decent effort

Stewart - 5 - All effort and no poise

Velicka - 6 - The verminator strikes again. Was out on his feet again though

Palazuelos - 9 - Ran the show in the first half before fading in the 2nd

Driver - 4 - Mince in the first game against them at Tynie, mince again here

Subs:

Wallace - 4 - OK

Mikoliunas - 3 - Typical Miko

Bit harsh on Stewart as he was reported to be feeling unwell before kick off - he would probably not have played if we had any decent alternative - should have been taken off at half time as he clearly struggled - we picked up again after he was subbed.

Thats more like it. each player today should automatically get a 6 for a good team performance where they worked for each other. We wouldnt of won otherwise. geoff giving Jose a 0 is childish.

I played left back (badly) when I played football. Goncalves reminded me of myself! The difference is that he's meant to cost 2 million euros!! :confused:

Banks - 7 - Not much to do.

 

Neilson - 6 - Didn't do anything wrong. Looked reasonably solid in defense.

 

Karipidis - 8 - Solid.

 

Berra - 7 - See Karipidis

 

Jonsson - 7 - Played very well in midfield. Some good blocks.

 

Goncalves - 4 - Had a couple of good moments, but I shat myself every time the ball got near him.

 

Cesnauskis - 6 - Looked lively in the first half, faded in the second, understandable considering he didn't play last year at all!

 

Stewart - 5 - Poor, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for not feeling well

Velicka - 7 - Led the line well. Scored the goal.

 

Palazuelos - 8 - Great performance again, particularly in the first half

 

Driver - 5 - Not at his best

 

Subs:

Wallace - 5 - did reasonably well when he came on

 

Mikoliunas - 4 - Did ok

 

Nade - 3 - Didn't do anything, only on for 10

Yeah I agree, something needs to be done. But at least Still he has his pace which is useful for when he makes mistakes. Something Wallace doesnt have to fall back on.

Take your pick from Karipidis or Palazuelos.

 

Jonsson, Velicka and Berra were also decent.

Just back from game and Mikey was sick on the pitch! Still battled hard and deserves praise!

 

Banks - 7 Very little to do but Effective in what he done

 

Neilson - 6 Having a poor season

Karapidis - 8 Best i`ve seen him

Jose - 2 Good athlete but never a footballer

Berra - 7 Decent from skipper

 

Chesney - 7 Decent in 1st half, could always move up a gear tho

Jonsson - 8 Excellent prospect and played really well

Stewart - 7 Even though he was clearly ill he battled hard

Ruben - 9 Outstanding, need i say more

Driver - 6 not up to match fitness i dont think but still played ok

 

Velicka - 8 Decent shift and really is a handful,

 

Miko - 6 tried really hard when came on

Nade - 1 Not looking like he did when we 1st signed him

Wallace - 5 good run, must be in for Jose next week

 

Ref Kenny "Goggles" Clark - 1 Fell for the blatant Diving by Morais, booked Velicka for a "dive" when there was contact but let Benji off with a bad foul whick merited a booking. Poor poor standard of refereeing, I still think the officials in the sfa are blatantly racist against the lithuanians, todays performance justifies that theory more than ever!

Neilson - 5

Karipidis - 8 - Excellent

Berra - 7

Jonsson - 6

Velicka - 7 - did what he needed to :smile:

Palazuelos - 9 - superb first half; tired in the second half

Driver - 5 - anonymous

 

Wallace - 6 - did well when he came on

Italian style marks - generally lower and avoiding extremes

 

Banks - 6.5 - never greatly tested but always looked safe

Goncalves - 5 - Had trouble dealing with Morais but no disasters

Jonsson - 6 - Fair

Stewart - 5 - Effort but not much else

Palazuelos - 6,5 - Tidiest central midfielder

Cesnauskis - 6 -Dangerous at times

Driver - 5- Another off day

Velicka - 6,5 - Scored again and caused the Hibs defence trouble

Subs:

Wallace - sv

Mikoliunas - 5,5 - Should have scored from headed chance

Nade - sv

Banks 6 Did what he had to but poor distribution.

 

Neilson 5 Poor distribution

Karipidis 7 Did well

Berra 5 Poor distribution and no leadership

Goncalves 5 Caught out with the boy on the wing, but to be fair Berra had him coming in to the middle to pick up Kerr also, stuck to his task and the winger never hurt us.

 

Stewart 2 Ill

Driver 4 Hardly in game

Jonsson 6 Man marking job on Shiels who was quiet so done his job.

Ruben 6 Would have been more but he disappeared after 35mins

Chesney 6 Looked to cause them problems

 

Velicka 8 MY MOTM. Goal and run his Heart out their all alone.

 

 

Wallace 6 Like him in midfield.

Miko 6 Done alright

Nade 4 Looked up for it in his short time.

 

Ref 0 GIRFUY

 

Thought we faded badly after 1/2 hr, but Hibs for all their possession never hurt us, not because of great defending, but because they are p!55 poor. Winger for all the space he had never hurt us and all they relied upon was deep balls into the box(:eek:) which we attempt to make hard work of clearing.

 

We have to stop giving the ball away cheaply, any half decent team will make us pay, and Banks....what was wrong with rolling it out of defence???

 

Our play from our own corners/freekicks is shocking(ok we got a goal) and as for our defending of set pieces........what do we do at training?

Banks- 8 - having put up with kurskis and basso you realise what a no nonsense solid GK performance is worth

 

Neilson - 7 Pretty solid, distribution wasnt the best but passed the test

 

Jose-5 - he actually looks like he is playing on ice skates, terrible, time to go

 

Berra - 8- superb, did the job as he needed too

 

Karapidis - 7- solid but shouldnt try and over complicate

 

Chesney -4 - annonymous and knackered after 5 minutes

 

Driver- 6- not his best game

 

Stewart- 3- awful, all he did was fall over

 

Eggert - 7- a few solid challenges, did no wrong

 

Ruben - 9- superb, did everything he needed and more

 

Velicka - 7- not his best but did well

 

Nade- 2- the sooner he hits the slimfast the better, all he contributed was a few disclipinary points

 

Miko - 3- very little time

 

Wallace 5- no nonsence

Actually thought Robbie had a pretty good game today, whichever one of the Morrocan's it was he was marking never got a sniff in the first half. Okay, his distribution isn't what it could be but his job is first and foremost to defend. Don't really like these types of polls anyway - it's a TEAM game and we won as a TEAM

Banks - 7: Shows what a difference a competent goalkeeper makes.

 

Neilson - 5: Not his worst game, but he's still rank. Loved his effort on goal that ended up behind him.

Berra - 7: Won as much as you'd hope he would against Jones. Good workrate.

Karipidis - 8: Very good; won everything that came his way.

Goncalves - 5: Not great; if you're a left back, STAY ON THE LEFT.

 

Cesnauskis - 6: Wish we'd had the ball to his feet more often. Murray wouldn't have stood a chance.

Jonsson - 7: Hardly flawless in possession, but incredible stamina and defensive work.

Stewart - 2: Rank.

Palazuelos - 8: Very tidy in possession, and tackles well. Really good midfielder.

Driver - 5: Not very good.

 

Velicka - 5: Might as well have not been playing in the second half.

A welcome 3 points at the end of the day, but still a poor performance. It was just as well for us that they were worse.

 

Michael Stewart was very poor, as was Driver. Add in two duff full backs as well.

Banks - 7 - In command.

Neilson - 5 - Reasonable game. Not much came down Hibs left!

Karipidis - 8 - Outstanding in the 2nd half particularly.

Berra - 7 - Also commanding but poor distribution too often

Jonsson - 8 - Stood up and was counted when under a bit of pressure at the end

Goncalves - 6 - Started really well and his pace got him out of trouble. He was up against the only hobo to give us any bother!

Cesnauskis - 6 - Started really well and faded but was chasing evrything right up until he got pulled

Stewart - 6 - Lacks that cool head for a key pass but his hard work created space for Palazuelos

Velicka - 7- Real poachers goal and should have had a penalty when he was booked for diving. The arm clearly went out from hobo

Palazuelos - 9 - Superb in the 1st half! Faded in the 2nd as Stewart faded

Driver - 5 - Not his best. Lot's of running but no composure

Subs:

Wallace - 4 - Settled in well

Mikoliunas - 4 - Did nothing wrong which in some's eyes is like him being MotM

Nade - 3 - Mouthed his way into the book but actually put himself about a bit

 

Referee: K Clark AGAIN booked a Hearts (Lithuanian) for diving when it was a push!

Berra a 5 ?? come on Gambo Berra was excellent today, both he and Karapidis were the main reason Banks had nothing to do today.

 

Agree about our set plays though and i have to say our fitness is a concern for me.

Neilson 6 - surprisingly decent

Karipidis 8 - one mis-hit pass aside, excellent

Berra 8 - his best game this season

Goncalves 3 - oh dear

 

Cesnauskis 6 - Kenny Clark doesn't like him

Jonsson 7 - performed his duties well, wish he'd take a chance going forward sometimes

Stewart 3 - woeful, but if he's unwell....well no he still shouldn't have played

Palazuelos 9 - class in a glass or something

Driver 6 - worked hard

 

Velicka 7 - unfairly booked, scored

 

Wallace 7 - did VERY well under the circumstances

Mikoliunas 5 - looked like he did well, but how many people's best first touch comes off their face

Nade 2 - saw out the game, put their defence under pressure - a clever sub by Shaggy

Christophe Berra 8 - Best game of the season.

Eggert Jonsson 7 - Worked really hard. Impressed me.

Karipidis - 8 Strong and composed, trajedy Z has played ahead of him.

Berra - 8 Excellent performance, won every header.

Goncalves - 6 I like him but not the best game today, needs proper coaching.

Cesnauskis - 7 Quieter today but did well.

Stewart - 6 Poor performance but he will come good again.

Jonsson - 7 Solid but would rather have seen a second striker.

Palazeulos - 9 MOTM, outstanding the last 6 games or so.

Driver - 6 Bad performance again, needs to be dropped.

Velicka - 6 Horrific general play and effort but bagged a goal, fair play.

:thumb:

Spot on.

...not only is he competent, he commands his area and gets stuck into those that make mistakes! It's good to have a voice at the back, it does make a difference.

I thought Berra and Karipidis were excellent also. Hope we stick with this pairing.:)

Banks - 7 Didnt have too much to do but at least he looks the part. Poor kicking tho, nearly every kick out went to a Hibs player however throwing the ball out to the full backs is unfortunately not an option at the moment.

 

Neilson - 5 Poor season

 

Karipidis -8 See Berra

 

Berra - 8 Turning into a very good central defensive partnership very solid.

 

Goncalves 2 Done a couple of good things - one of them was not touching the ball and shielding it out of play. He is a bombscare. Jose - please dont try and play football - u can't.

 

Driver - 4 Went off the boil big time

 

Jonsson - 5 Done not too bad but another one who seems to have went off the boil.

 

Stewart - 4 Poor but I realised after the game he was ill - but shouldnt have played in that case.

 

Palazuelos - 8 Excellent first half - faded a bit in the 2nd but overall, thank goodness for Rueben today. Seemed to be everywhere breaking up play, winning tackles and he can play a bit too.

 

Chesney - 5 not as good as he has been since he came back but still glad to see him back.

 

Velicka - 8 Put in a great shift. Cant afford to let this guy leave.

 

Subs

Wallace - 5 Looked good when he came on. Much prefer him in midfield than left back however....!

Miko - 3 Not too much time but done alright

Nade - 2 Not enough time but any longer on the park and he probably would have been knackered anyway!

 

Ref - 0 Shocking. 2 Blatent dives from Hibs players and they win the free kicks, Stonewall pen for us turned down along with a booking for Velicka. Shouting at Chesney was bang out of order. Not got enough time to go on about the rest of his performance. Shocking.

 

Overall - not pretty but this will do the players confidence a world of good. We seem to play well for the first 20mins and lose our shape especially after we score. This must be down to nervousness and I think that this result will boost the confidence of the whole team. This result could turn our season around - hopefully!

Banks 6 - Reliable as always but kicking terrible.

Neilson 5 - steadier today but still poor overall

Karipidis - 7 backs to wall in second half and stood firm

Berra - 7 same as Kristos, committed and determined

Goncalves 2 - I see a snail crawling along the edge of a straight razor. A nightmare.

Ruben - 7 fabulous first half but needs to keep something in the tank for the second.

Mikey - 4 I did not realise he was ill, maybe a manager would have taken the decision at the last minute and hooked him.

Driver - 5 definitely on a poor run lately

Chesney - 6 a real danger but must try and score more.

Eggert - 6 committed performance

Goal Machine - 7 must try and keep this guy.

 

The Shootist - 5 got stuck in

Miko - 5 looked busy

Nade - 4 not enough time

 

Frail - 6 should have made a decision on Mikey earlier

 

The so called referee - 2 Corrupt, corrupt, corrupt.

Banks - 6 - nothing much to do, but he did it well

Neilson - 7 - very good performance, good response to a poor game last week - tremendous tackle on Murray

Karipidis - 7 - weak in the tackle but reads the game

Berra - 7 - solid today

Goncalves - 5 - positional play needs to be sorted out

Cesnauskis - 7 - great to have Chesney back

Stewart - 3 - poor poor game - we've already seen this season he can't play in the hole

Jonsson - 9 - makes the difference, strength, power, running, tackles

Palazuelos - 7 - good game, clearly can't play in the hole either

Driver - 4 - poor game, perhaps needs a rest

Velicka - 6 - another goal, still can't hold the ball up, but more effort

 

Wallace - 6 - slotted in quite nicely

Miko - 6 - relieved a bit of pressure

Nade - 1 - overweight

 

Frail - more like it with the team selection

 

Clark - shocking - many decisions the wrong way round

 

Hibs - pretty poor team

Banks 7 - sold as ever

 

Neilson 6 - little came down his wing. Couple of good runs forward.

Karipidis 8 - dominant all day (MoM)

Berra 8 - got everywhere

Goncalves 5 - terrible first half. Got better. In his defence Hibs best player was Morais and every Hibs ball was over the top to him. They obviously targetted Jose's positional weakness. He needs to work on this.

 

Chesny 6 - great to start with but faded

Jonsson 7 - good shift. helped Jose out a few times.

Stewart 4 - I thought he was very poor, One or two good moments but rarely completed a pass to a colleague.

Palazuelos 8 - we talk about technically gifted players. He's one of the best allied with a great workrate.

Driver 6 - played in fits and starts but lost the ball a few times.

 

Velicka 6 - decent shift

 

Subs

Wallace 5 - really helped shore up midfielsd when we started tiring. Great run stopped only by a cynical foul.

Nade 3 -should have been on earlier to allow us a target man to hold the ball up

Miko 3 - the usual mix of cr*p and quality

Agree with all of this apart from Velicka. He had a really good game today and deserves an 8. Karipidis is really starting to change my opinion of him. Amazing what a run of games in your natural position can do;)

Christos was great against Kilmarnock and decent against Motherwell but today he showed that he can be also dominating in the air. I think he's showed that he's worth persisting with.

Apart from his goal, what did he do to have a really good game today? He gave the ball away at least 5 times, didnt hold it up, didnt close down full backs, didnt make himself available for a pass on the same side the ball was if full back or midfielder had it and only won one header. It is amazing how people can see the game so differently.

 

Fair play to him for scoring.

Banks - 7: Competent and confident tho put too many kicks onto marion jones head

 

Neilson - 6 solid if not much else pure robbie

Berra - 7: good solid maybe signs of a partnership with Karipidis.

Karipidis - 8: Top performance maybe could be capt and let Berra get back to developing his game..

Goncalves - 5: frustrating every know and again looks like a player then has a game like this (what are the coaches doing with this lad?).

 

Cesnauskis - 6: not as good as last week would like to see him and miko for that matter take the ball to the byeline more often.

Jonsson - 7: still developing another decent performance still the odd expected error.

Stewart - 4: Not at the races but if ILL ok will let him off.

Palazuelos - 8: Very tidy in possession, and tackles will be an important player.

Driver - 5: Not his best please send him to work with a sprint coach to work on initial impact burst of speed..

 

Velicka - 7: scored again and wrongly booked early on did his job.

 

subs

Nade 3-worked a bit harder but caught clum's disease and got a stupid booking.

miko 3- ok

wallace 3- to many mistakes needs worked hard by coaches to get the good wallace back.

 

team overall 6.5 not the best football but showed a spirit and fight.

hobos 5.5 flattered to decive started the 2nd half well but did not create a real chance.

 

ref -was there a secret memo passed around the refs in scotland telling them to be harder on hearts?

I'm not his biggest fan but again he came up with the goal. He worked his socks off as well. Peeled to the wing a few times and almost set up goals. Close down full backs? Think you'll find that was meant to be Cesney and Drivers jobs. You are right though, it's all about opinions.
