Hibs fans had their say after a disappointing defeat at the hands of Aberdeen

Darren Nicholl wrote: “Poor again today. Lucky not to get beat against Motherwell and lucky to win against Dundee United and St Johnstone. League position flatters this team. Much improvement required lads.”

Chris Wood added: "Lost one game out of 6 – every single one of us would have taken that at the start – but sign Simon Murray already and let Gullan go out on loan, can’t quite cut it yet in the top flight. Not an impact sub compared to what Simon would be.”

One fan was staying positive: “Just one mistake caused us to lose, was one of those things. A draw would have been a fair result, but communication needs to be a bit better... that may have prevented the mistake. Still 13 points from opening six, just need to bounce back against St Mirren.”

Scott Marr wasn’t happy: “Finally Jack Ross gets a results his team merits. Very poor manager. Not a chance in hell we are ever close to third come the end of the season. I remember a time I used to enjoy watching fast, attacking, possession football at hibs. [Now it’s just] hooof to Doidge.”

Another supporter tweeted: “Dons have more physical presence in the middle of the pitch, our midfield are pretty footballers with no dig and no energy to drive the team forward… all very predictable.”

Alford Hibee said: “A pretty poor performance, that. A distinct lack of energy and imagination after about the first 25 minutes. We certainly shouldn’t be shipping defeats to Aberdeen at home. Some thinking to be done following this, especially if we are to be in contention for Europe.”

Martin Willis said: “Yet again... we were awful today. Typically Hibs - a postive start, no goal from it so we give up.”

Stephen Weir wrote: “No runners in the middle of the pitch. Been the same for two years.”

Lawrie Simpson added: “No creativity at all but we go again.”

Tom Hall said: “Second in the league. And second to every ball.”
