'This is ridiculous and it will be downright farcical if it’s allowed to continue' – Hibs fans react to another defeat, this time at Kilmarnock

@HibbySmurf: “Recognise your error @LeeannDempster and dispense with the services of this first team coach you recruited immediately. Otherwise we are facing a relegation battle. And conduct a major review into our summer recruitment that's been shambolic”

@BrianDickie: “Enough is enough. If the next news update on the website isn’t the announcement of Heckingbottom being sacked then all that goodwill and feelgood factor built up from 21/05/2016 will be gone. This is ridiculous and it will be downright farcical if it’s allowed to continue”

@AidanCameron9: “Relegation form. 1 win out of 5 games”

@CRM1875: “Plenty more of these cracking results to look forward too. Heckingbottom the tactical mastermind manager of the year”

@HonestHibee: “Will season ticket prices be reduced for Championship?”

@arnielouden: “I refuse to believe we can't get a winning team on the pitch from the players available, find someone that can make it happen”

@simonneill69: “His team his players show him the door”

@KempJason: “Get this imposter OUT of our Club...utter disgrace and Dempster can go too if she cant see the blindingly obvious”

@R11Loading: “It’s sad to have absolutely no will to see us play after the last few seasons”

@kcaj7373: “Just get him out before we get done by Hearts”

@Andypurd: “They won’t sack him before the derby but, I’d be surprised if he survived a Hearts defeat. We can’t defend Jim. Both goals conceded today were terrible. Against Motherwell defensively we are criminal. What the hell is going on? We are just a complete shambles, a tactical mess. The blame must lie with him. We must take action or this clown will relegate us”

@boblee1961: “And this is why I have no interest in paying money to watch the team I love ... and I fully expect next week to make it even worse .. please can we get rid of him now for the good of the club”

@StevieBroon78: “Who would have seen this coming! Please, get Heckingbottom out now. Our football is horrific, dull and so slow it’s unreal. Sort it now before this becomes a proper scrap”

@Shadey1875: “Has to go - the goals against column alone is obscene”
