5x5

You can lose more casualties before losing your rank bonus. That's better than one more hobgob attack, IMHO.

Agreed. The biggest strength of craptastic/mediocre infantry is sheer numbers and those are best represented in the rank bonus. I would suggest 30 though, and personally, at that unit size, I'd say 6x5 or 5x6 is purely up to personal tastes. I'd go with the 6th rank instead, personally.

You're only going to go wider then the enemy if you can generate more combat (fighting) res then the opponent. For Hobgobs, that's pretty much no one.
