‘I feel I’ve failed’: Man United loanee disappointed with himself after ‘5/10’ display


The Manchester United loanee might not have directly responsible for giving away the 94th minute equaliser which cost his side two valuable points on Saturday afternoon, but that did not do much to ease the feeling of ‘failure’. 

Erik ten Hag’s disorganized Red Devils dropped out of the top half and into the dark depths of the bottom six as his team went behind Newcastle and into seventh place after that 2-2 draw at Bournemouth. These days, even qualifying for the Europa League is unclear.

On Hibernian’s journey to Motherwell, Will Fish, to use the words of Edinburgh Live, “stood up well” against the muscle-bound presence of 6ft 3ins centre-forward Theo Bair.

Fish, according to the publication, “is the lead center-half in a defence that keeps shipping awful goals,” and it gave the young player a mere 5/10 rating.

It is debatable to what extent Fish bears the blame for Hibs’ terrible defensive performance. The majority of fans would concur that the 21-year-old, who was born in Manchester and scored the penalty that gave Nick Montgomery’s team the advantage at Firhill, has been one of the few bright spots in an extremely disappointing season.

But now that Shane Blaney’s stoppage-time equalizer has condemned Hibs to a bottom-half finish—the Scottish Premiership will now be divided into two groups of six for the remaining games of the season—Fisher cannot help but believe the campaign could no longer be characterized as a success by any standard.

“It’s a sickener. It’s going to take a while to digest,” Fish sighs, speaking to the Daily Record.
