One of Mark Warburton's clichés is 'we must look at every game and learn from it'. Looking back on the first 3 games of the season I think we have certainly learned one thing. Teams in the premier league are in fact going to play against us with the exact same tactics as teams in the lower leagues did. Hamilton, Dundee and Motherwell have all lined up to defend in numbers with a 4-5-1 system. Most of these games have been played 30 yards from our opponents goal with a wall of 9 defenders for us to break down. Frustrate, steal a goal, shut the back door and frustrate some more is on the menu.
After a frustrating first half on Saturday where the team went in at half-time a goal down to Motherwell, it's fair to say we improved after the break.
Rangers came from behind to win in dramatic fashion and go top of the league after beating Motherwell 2-1 at Ibrox.
Second half goals from Harry Forrester and Kenny Miller gave the Light Blues a deserved victory despite producing a below-par performance.
Let’s be honest from the outset. In the same way Rangers deserved to beat Celtic earlier in the competition, Hibernian dominated us in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final. For the majority of the game they were a yard quicker, they worked incredibly hard and, unlike the previous five games this season, were the better team by a fair distance. Ergo, as I cautioned in my match preview on Friday, there was no shock here in an exciting final that mirrored the free-scoring games between the clubs already this season. In the same way we were emotional in April, generations of Hibs fans must be beyond delighted and, after almost 115 years of disappointment, no-one can deny them in their moment of glory.
