@morralexand: “Old enough to remember a Hibs team including Latapy getting knocked out of the Scottish Cup by Stirling.”

@easterr0ad tweeted: “If this was mid season, I would worry. Given it’s the first competitive match, I’m not concerned one bit. Win the next three, we top the group. 2 points much better than 1.”

@scottballandOr: “Ok this definitely isn’t a good result but it is our first meaningful game, with an unfinished squad that’s also missing key players. We should be giving them stick but let’s not lose all hope.”

@cigyswan1969: “July 13th and already hibs in crisis get a grip people its the betfred cup who cares treat it as a warm up to the real targets top 4 finish and a run at Scottish cup.”
