    Adil Nabi Targeted By Hibs

    Hibernian, Oxford United, Gillingham and Colchester United are all said to be interested in Nabi with Hibs thought to be the front runners. The striker signed a six-month contract with Dundee in August but has failed to make his mark on the team. In nine outings for Dundee, Nabi has scored just once which came in a home defeat to Kilmarnock which was to be Neil McCann's last game in charge of the Dee. Since the arrival of Jim McIntyre as manager, he has found opportunities hard to come by and it would be no surprise to anyone if he was to move on in the next transfer window when his deal is up.
  2. Your three word match report for the game against Hibs today? Deserved a Draw!
  3. Dundee’s draw against St Mirren ended a run of five defeats in a row and also seen McIntyre eventually getting off the mark with his first point and also goal as Dundee manager. After having time to regroup over the international break, he will take his side to the capital to take on off-form Hibernian who are currently on a four-game losing streak. Despite the Edinburgh teams recent run, McIntyre knows that he will be up against a side that are much better than their league position tells us. “Without a shadow of a doubt,” answered McIntyre when questioned if he had seen an improvement from the team since coming in. “It has been taken on a wee bit from the Motherwell game and then even more positive in terms of the St Mirren performance. It is just about trying to turn that and the small margins into points. “But we know we are facing a top side in Hibs. They are an exciting team to watch and have a lot of attacking threat. We have to go there and make sure we are putting them under pressure. “You are going to have peaks and troughs throughout any season but with them being at home Lenny will have them fired up. “We know they have good players and they will be looking to take maximum points. But for us, the encouraging signs have been there and we want try and build on the St Mirren result.”

    Dundee 1 - 1 Hibs

    Dundee finally managed to get of the mark by claiming a point against Hibs at Dens Park. Kevin Holt has us in front early on only for Anthony Stokes to tie the score on the stroke of half time. Hibs pushed forward for the win but Dundee, who were plying without a recognised striker, held on for that all important point.

    Hibs 2 - 1 Dundee

    Martin Boyle and Simon Murray scored as Hibernian won for the fourth match in a row to stay third in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership table, and keep Dundee on the bottom. Marcus Haber had given Neil McCann's men a fighting chance with his first half equaliser but the defeat is the fifth in a row for the Dark Blues.
  6. It was another afternoon of despair for the long-suffering fans of Dundee as they watched their team being beat 3-0 while only really threatening the opposition goalkeeper in the opening minutes. When quizzed if he felt he was still the man to get the club off the bottom of the table and climbing up the league, McCann responded: “Yes, absolutely,” while insisting that had not spoken to John Nelms about his future. "I don't seek assurances. I’ve not had any conversations with John with respect to my job. “I just keep working hard. If that time comes then we will have the discussion but so far, it’s not happened. “I feel we are working under pressured circumstances, clearly. I’m not going to hide from that. I know we’re on a real, real bad run in terms of results, so I won’t be ignorant to that fact. “I’ll deal with the pressure. You take a job in management, you have to deal with the ups and downs. “Every manager I’ve worked with has had to work under those circumstances and I’m not the type of guy who is going to be frightened by that challenge. I’ll just keep working hard as that’s the only thing I can do. I’m trying to give the lads every piece of information they can use. “Unfortunately, the guys are playing with that lack of confidence. I can’t give them that. They have got to find that.” “They still have my belief in them and I’ll keep giving them it.”
  7. "I understand the pressure is greater on myself and the team because the points are not free flowing, but my belief is not any smaller in the group. I need to see them have that same belief I have in them," said McCann. "I'm expecting the fans will get behind us like we always do." Though he is still confident in his squad of players to turn it around, that does not distract him from the inevitable scrutiny that will come if Dundee are defeated tomorrow at home. "I'm aware of the situation and people are saying that's another game gone by and we have lost and we have not got any points." "I feel the same pressure I was under when I took the job. I feel it because I set high demands on my team. "I walked away from a brilliant job and you’re walking into a precarious job where you are reliant on players. But we understand the pressures. "It's probably getting more difficult as the years go on as the pressures become greater. The quality is going up and so your job becomes harder. "I still want to be successful. I still have an enormous belief in my team. It's the same belief I had in the team at the start of the season."

    Hibs: The View From the Opposition

    The Premiership has been shut down the past three weeks due to the winter break so both clubs will be eager to kick start their campaigns with a victory under the Dens Park lights. That meant it was time to speak to the chaps over at Hibs Talk Podcast to ask them some questions about the recent happenings around their club. Hibs will go into their third match of the season against Dundee on the back of a Scottish Cup defeat in the Edinburgh Derby. For anyone who never seen the match, how did Hibs play and did they deserve to be beaten? For anyone who didn't see the game, they had a better Sunday afternoon than any Hibs fan or neutral. It was another poor Edinburgh Derby, with one goal just over the line, except this time it was given. Hibs didn't deserve a win, and if honest didn't a reply. Craig Levein ruffled some feathers with his ‘natural order’ comment. Considering it’s been a long time since they last defeated Hibs, what was your thoughts on his post-match interview? Also, his reaction to Martin Boyle during the game was a bit over the top wasn’t it? I think Craig Levein set put to achieve 3 things with that comment, wind up Lennon, wind up Hibs fans, and appease Hearts fans, and he was successful with all 3. All I'd say about the Boyle thing is that's twice this has happened at Tynecastle in the Hearts dug out... The last time both our clubs met, it ended in a fourth win in a row for yourselves. Since then there has only been two wins from nine and lost a bit of ground on Aberdeen and been leapfrogged from The Rangers. I remember the first time we spoke, you said you would be happy with fourth but it must be disappointing and frustrating to see a gap opening up? Recent form has been very poor, and the winter couldn't come quick enough. But that brought it's own documented issues. I think we would always be happy with 4th this season, but to be so far adrift of The Rangers and Aberdeen with Hearts breathing down our neck, this isn't what we expected, especially after the way we started the season The Winter break has come with some unwanted headlines with Anthony Stokes, Danny Swanson and Martin Boyle being punished for breaking a curfew at the training camp. Stokes looks set to leave along with Swanson now. What was your take on this incident and the potential loss of these two players? As mentioned these headlines haven't helped. My personal opinion, they stayed out past their bed time, so What, they're grown men, not children or soldiers. They're employees of a football club and Hibs and Lennon need to get a grip. But that's only me. I'd be gutted to see them go, Swanson has battled personal life issues and injuries the 1st half of the season, for his dream move to end like this would be devastating, as well as seeing our Scottish Cup hero threw out on his ear. Hoping not but doesn't look good What’s the gossip down around Leith about any potential transfer targets this window? Heard a few rumours, Ryan Williamson (Right Back at Dunfermline) Ikechi Anya of Derby, and weirdly Ryan McGowan formally of Hearts...which I don't think would go down well. You make your second trip up to the City of Discovery on Wednesday and will be hoping to make amends for the Derby defeat. How do you see this one panning out? Hard to call, will we respond and be out for blood after losing the Derby? Or will we be to wrapped up in not winning that we're not composed. I'm leaning towards the 1st and will go 3-1 Hibs win

    McCann Angered By 'Outrageous' Decision

    A melee broke out in the second half after Paul McGowan had been fouled and during this, Stokes delivered a low blow to defender Hendry. Both players would receive a yellow. “I know the fourth official has a clear view because he is standing next to me and I know Kylie can see it because she is looking down the same barrel,” McCann said. “Then John Beaton then gives a yellow card – before booking my player, who had been punched, too. “After the game, John Beaton told me he goes on the information he has been given. That information was ‘the player has been struck by another player’ but he said he didn’t deem it violent conduct; it was ‘aggressive behaviour’. “Well, I’m sorry, but it doesn’t take a lot to be painful when you get clipped in the balls with a closed fist. “People might be thinking ‘oh, he’s lost the game and looking for excuses’. Well, it’s not the case – it was outrageous.” As what seems to be a weekly occurrence, Neil McCann was angered at the goals that Dundee had lost. "The second goal is so basic defending," he said. "We worked on it this week and that's so angering. It's killed us,” said McCann. "What I'm more angry about is the guy who crosses the ball. He shouldn't be on the pitch. He's punched our defender between the legs. "The fourth official says he sees it, says they're dealing with it because of the melee and, for whatever reason, they've deemed it not violent conduct. "I'm really unhappy with their second goal, something we must get right individually. "If you switch off during games in this division, you get punished, but the most galling thing is that it should have been a red card for the player who crosses it. "I'm not getting a lack of effort, I'm getting basic mistakes and it's got to stop. "I'm not going to keep making excuses for them, that they're a young group and learning. They're conceding basic goals."

    Hibs: The View From the Opposition

    As ever, the lads at Hibs Talk Podcast spoke to us ahead of todays clash. We spoke last time before Hibs visited Dundee at Dens. Hibs were far by the better side that day but Dundee managed to grab their first point of the season. What was the thoughts from within the Hibs support after that game? There was a lot of frustration but some understanding. Hibs had something like 17 corners, and kept trying the short corner, which Dundee seen through and snuffed out. But something you’re going to come up against a goalkeeper having one of his best displays of the season, and Bain was outstanding that day. Since then you have only lost once in eight matches and in your last three games, been victorious in all three without conceding a goal. I take it it’s been a joy to watch the Hibees the past while? Yeah, it’s been great. A lot of Hibs fans will be swaggering about their work place. Three wins in Seven days and before that great displays in the games against Celtic, Aberdeen and Celtic in the Cup. You’re currently sitting third in the league, I know it’s still early in the season but surly most fans are eying up closing in on Aberdeen? I think fans are semi realistic, and would be happy with 4th come the end of the season. But we have to be ambitious, and with Rangers a bit of a mess, and the possibility of McInnes leaving Aberdeen, there’s no reason why we can’t push for 2nd. Paul Hanlon was recently called up to the Scotland squad, his first to the senior national team. A well-deserved call up for the defender? I think so. He’s not the “answer” to Scotland’s defensive issues. Personally, I think Soutar at Hearts with Cooper of Leeds is the long-term solution. But you need squad depth, and I see no reason why Hanlon can’t be a Scotland squad player. You recently seen your good form rewarded with a win in the Edinburgh derby. I make that the eight Derby without defeat for you lot. What did you make of Hearts? Hearts are in transition; however, it seems they’ve “been in transition” for years. Eventually you have to get a basis of a team, a core or a spine, whatever you want to call it. Hearts main issue is they have no width, and that was obvious at Easter Road. So, I couldn’t believe when they lined up with a diamond formation against Rangers, and you could tell Rangers had done their homework. Simon Murray seems to be getting his name on the scoresheet again, as is Martin Boyle. What other threats up front do Hibs have in their arsenal? Barker makes up the front 3 and is getting better and better each game. Fantastic dribbler who is taking on more players as his confidence grows. Only problem is he always cuts back on to his right foot, and I think every Right Back in the league knows that now. Will be interesting to see if Stokes gets back in the team if fit. Dundee have been playing good football but unfortunately the results haven’t been coming hand in hand with them. Do you think you will see McCann stick to his guns with his style of play or do you expect him to mix it up, especially since Easter Road is a tough place for us to visit? He’ll stick to his guns and I back him to do it. Dundee have too many good players to go down, and its only November. Given the choice would Dundee fans rather be patient and have great football that eventually clicks but always guarantees exciting football, giving say an 8th in the league finish with something to build on for next season. Or hoof ball tactics, a boring season and 6th. The big question now, can Hibs make it four wins in a row or can Dundee end their horrible run of defeats and maybe move off the bottom of the table? Yes, we can, and I’ll go for 3-1 Hibs, however I would not be surprised if the battle of the two Neil’s resulted in another draw.

    Hibernian: The View From the Opposition

    For this instalment of 'The View from the Opposition,' we spoke to Gavin from the Hibs Podcast team, HibsTalk. So how long has the HibsTalk Podcast been on the go for? We started HibsTalk back in May with a Season review. We listened to other Scottish Football Podcast, MFC Podcast is a very good one, took influence from them, put together a structure and are now into the flow of weekly podcasts. The club got back to the Premiership at the third time of asking last season and did so with ease. Were you surprised at the gap you won it by? No if I'm honest. We mentioned in our Season Review that Alan Stubbs finished behind The Rangers on 70 points, and Neil Lennon finished on 71. Okay, I may have expected United and Falkirk to have a higher points tally, but we drew too many games. It got us over the line though, that's the important thing. The club broke the 12,000 season tickets mark for the first time ever in July which is fantastic to see and as a Hibee, must make you proud to see the fans back the team in these number. Has this figure grown over the past month? It's been fantastic to see the fans flooding back. As long as we avoid performances like the one against Hamilton, hopefully the walk ups can continue to return and we can average 15k+ this season. That was the last figure I heard yeah. There have been quite a few players that have left this summer but with the likes of Ambrose, Stokes and Swanson signing up, you must feel that you have replaced the departing players with quality and not quantity? Neil Lennon and Leanne Dempster stuck to their word. Keep the core of the squad together giving new 2 year deals to many players, and adding quality with making Marciano and Ambrose permanent, bringing in Stokes and Swanson who are proven, as well as the likes of Slivka and Murray who look great additions. Overall fantastic window. Simon Murray has banged them in so far but is he the man to fill the void left by Jason Cummings? Between Murray, Stokes and Swanson from midfield, I believe we can find the net more than we did last season. So yes, Murray will be great, score goals and help fill that void, but I think anyone who says Murray is better than Cummings is off there head. You’ve started the season brightly, making it to the League Cup quarter finals and victories over Partick and Rangers in the league. Last week though, Hamilton grabbed a win which must have busted plenty a coupon around the country. Do you think that this result was maybe a little nudge to the fans that most teams are capable of taking points from each another in the league? Some fans may have needed to learn to respect other teams more, but I feel the majority of fans are in the know and are aware every team in this league is dangerous and anyone can beat anyone...bar Celtic, they just beat everybody. We know what type of impact that Stokes, Swanson and Murray can have on a game but is there anyone else that has flown under the radar that us Dees should be worried about? Slivka. He never started against Hamilton after a commanding performance against The Rangers. I feel he'll be back. He's came through at Juventus, had loan spells in Serie B. He's a starter for Lithuania, looks like he can control the game, good pass on him. Excited about him this season. Now that you have that burden of not winning the Scottish Cup in over 100 years (It’s now been passed onto us so thanks for that), what’s the targets for this Hibernian team this season? Another Cup? I know Livingston well, they will be a tough game but at home we have to be favourites. Celtic have to be beaten eventually so the League Cup/Scottish Cup again and a high finish. I'd like to see us battle with The Rangers and Aberdeen for second but if you offered me fourth, close to them ahead of Hearts, I'd probably take it as a first season back. How would you rate the job Neil Lennon has done for you so far? Solid. I'm not his biggest fan as a manager, and by that I mean behaviours. I didn't like him at Celtic as a player or as a manager, and I'm not going to change my mind because he's at Hibs. However he's ambitious, he's a winner and he's exactly what the club needs right now. And if he keeps up the job he's doing, you won't find me moaning about him being there. Believe it or not, it’s been just under five years since Hibs last played at Dens. I remember you were top of the league while we were bottom but we managed to win 3-1 that day. You might not be quite top but we’re definitely bottom. Can we see a repeat scoreline? What’s your prediction for this match? I predicted 2-2 for the weekend on the Podcast, but hope I'm wrong. I feel we need a win to get back on track. However I've seen a few of your games, you create chances, especially with Scott Allan in the team. And it's just a matter of time before they start going in. El Bakhtaoui is a goalscorer, give him confidence and continue to supply him, the net will start to bulge. Plus I feel you've found a real gem in Roarie Deacon. If our defending is a repeat of Saturday, then your strikers will get the time and space to finish those chances. Hopefully for us we improve. Best of luck to the season. I predicted you guys for 6th so let's hope it's a slow start and your season gets started after the International Break.

    Easter Road

    Easter Road Stadium opened on 4 February 1893 with a match between Hibernian and Clyde. In the next decades, Hibernian regularly contemplated moving to another site, but finally decided in 1922 to stay at the ground. Two years later three banks of terraces and a main stand were erected. Easter Road Stadium recorded its highest attendance in 1950 when 65,860 fans attended the derby versus Hearts. Minor improvements to the stadium were made in the 1950s and 1960s, but few in the decades following. By the late 1980s, the state of Easter Road had significantly deteriorated and safety measures had reduced capacity to about 27,000. In the early 1990s, Hibernian considered moving to a brand new stadium, however plans were abandoned in 1994, and one year later a redevelopment of Easter Road was started. Two new stands were built behind the goals, and the rest of the stadium was converted into an all-seater. The redevelopment of Easter Road continued in the 2000s, first when a new West Stand was built in 2001, and most recently in 2010 when the new East Stand opened.
