It's 72 mins gone and still no sign of mcginn. WHY is he there? I was convinced he would get at least a half. Surely now he will be released back to us as he can't possibly be a starter in the qualifier.

I really can't see strachan starting McGinn on Sunday so why has he picked him?

McGinn quotes " I'm a Scotland player for the week- I want to stake a claim for the Slovenia game - first and foremost my country is the most important thing to me " He should have just said f--- Hibs. I have to wonder if he might regret these comment!

Dry your eyes! First of all this isn't a direct quote, reporters spin on it to make headlines, & what's wrong being patriotic? He will be sold on at some time so the bigger his profile the better for hibs, the quote I read was i'm a Scotland player for the week unless my managers say different, he dosnt get called up unless he's playing well for hibs you can't have your cake and eat it Big L.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2017 20:47:22
First off, your the only greetin git on here! 2nd it's Hibs before Scotland for me. The quotes I wrote are as likely to be as accurate as the one you read! Hibs pay his wages and his loyalty should be to us, he should withdraw from the Scots squad and show that loyalty. Our form since the turn of the year has been dire to say the least and in case you've forgot, this is one of the biggest games of the season. I'm hoping the ginger minger gives him 15 mins against Canada then releases him, that will teach him for opening his mouth.

Tomo, read your own post 14th March on Hibs Banter, your basically saying the same as me!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 00:42:34
If you read my post properly I say play him or leave him no bit part as it benifits no one, what your saying is forget any international caps your club comes first, so basically if every player adopts your attitude no internationals atoll?

BULL---T when Scotland play on a W/ E their are no Prem games, the problem is that we are in the Championship and have to play without two of our top players, that puts us at a disadvantage. That's the bit I don't accept.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 10:37:17
So John McGinn should turn his country down? In your world he should only turn up when it suits you, you rant on about great teams of the past great European nyts etc did none of the famous hibs ledgends gain caps? because if it were up to you not a single hibs player would have pulled an international jersey, two missing players shouldn't define any result I agree circumstances are not ideal, but it's time for squad to pull together and step up to the plate one game dosnt and shouldn't be our season.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Mar 2017 11:09:07
More BS. Your just a slaver, trying hard to make an argument when you haven't got one and when you lose you get personal, McGinn should get his priorites right and that means playing for Hibs not sitting on the Scottish bench. Their are games that can define a clubs season if not their future and the next two fall in to that category IMO.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 14:50:33
McGinn will definitely play on Wednesday and nobody as yet has said he won't b available to play for hibs on Saturday John McGinn said himself he's a Scotland player for the week UNLESS his managers think different, your selfish behaviour for an ageing man is ridiculous, your getting all hot and bothered about something that's not happened yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 15:43:13
He said he wants to play against Slovenia, he said Scotland comes first. I'm saying it doesn't. I'm saying Hibs come first. Their you go getting personal again.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 16:02:25
Well if it's important to him that's what matters, him and every other professional sportsman throughout the world would want to represent their country. absolutely nothing wrong with ambition not to mention the fact he's representing HIBERNIAN FOOTBALL CLUB and showing any possible signing targets in the future that coming to Easter road furthers your career.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 17:01:55
What matters in this circumstance is what's important to Hibs and having our best players available at all times. BTW one of the strikers has withdrawn from the under 21's if he calls up JC that might solve the problem, other than that I hope McGinn gets game time against Canada and then released to Hibs.

{Ed007's Note - I totally agree with you, Big L. Hibs should come first for McGinn in imo. I'm not interested in Scotland - or any international football - and after seeing how jaded and lethargic Celtic have played the last month or so I can't understand why we are sending players to play another 1 or 2 games at this stage in the season. A player's club should always be their priority, especially when it's as important as your game against Falkirk is.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 17:28:53
If we were 15 pt's clear, which we should be, it might not matter so much to me, but we are not. Lennons in the paper today saying exactly the same thing "We need to win the next two games and we need our best players available" that's why he is going to speak to Strachan after the Canada game with a view to getting McGinn released.

{Ed007's Note - It would be shocking if wee Chesney never gave McGinn any game time or has he said for definite he'll play against Canada?}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 18:06:43
I'm not aware of his plans other than he has stated that no Celtic players will be used against Canada and is quite prepared to throw Armstrong Celtic and Cairney Fulham both midfielders in to the fray against Slovenia.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2017 18:33:19
Under 21s still have 5 forwards left for a friendly against eastonia jc won't b replacing him. as I've stated before Jc will over age once there next meaningful game comes around in September, btw I think McGinn will play against Falkirk.

Hib61, the point you make is valid, however, it has been going on as far back as I can remember. These debates, for want of a better description should maybe have taken place on Hibs Banter.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Mar 2017 12:15:47
Several newspapers have stated that John McGinn could be available for only €1500000. That seems a ridiculously low sum for such a talented mid-fielder who is already a Scottish internationalist. Does anyone know if there was an agreement signed when he first signed for hibs that if after a certain time another club wanted him, he could go for that amount. I would have thought a more realistic figure would have been 4 or 5 million. Far too often we see Scottish clubs underselling their players.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

18 Mar 2017 17:14:39
4/ 5 million is an unrealistic figure to expect for a player who has only really proven himself consistently at Scottish championship level. Still a young lad that shows great potential but he would have to prove himself at a higher level before he comes with that kind of price tag. If we keep up with these results there's a good chance a few of our top performers will be sold for a lot less than hibs would want.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Mar 2017 21:18:03
What ever he sells at, st mirren are due 33%of transfer so the more the better.

Call ups for McGinn and Marciano but not Cummings!

If we mess up against Falkirk then Mr Scot Gemmill should take some of the blame.

Under league rules, we can only cancel games if we have 3 players on international duty.

Personally, I think Cummings should've been tried against Canada then released back to Hibs with McGinn for saturday. Especially with Canada game being at ER.

What is more ridiculous, though, is that Cummings hasn't even been chosen for Scotland U21s! Does anyone know why? He is definitely eligible!

As he hasn't, we will be playing the Falkirk game with no Marciano and McGinn. Laidlaw does make mistakes and although McGinn goes missing a lot, he is still our best midfielder. Not having these 2 could lose us the game. We all know how underwhelming Shinnie has been, and Bartley and Fyvie do absolutely nothing going forrward, so even less goals are expected.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Mar 2017 20:23:29
Cummings scoring in championship isn't seen as the grade needed for full international call up, he's not bn picked for under 21s because he's almost to old and there building for future, fyvie is suspended I think for Falkirk Bartley has never let hibs down especially in big games all goal keepers make mistakes laidlaw dosnt make any more than average Martin is well overdue a starting place and keatings playing an attacking role also a possibility you need a squad to win a league and we have AS to your comment about McGinn goes missing in games? You've obviously never played at any decent level, he's not just our best player he's top 10 in Scotland as a whole. not even messi is at it for 90 mins week in week out TRY BEING A BIT MORE AWARE MR AWARE?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 11:04:44
If JC's performance in the Championship isn't seen as the grade needed for international call up how is it that it's ok for McGinn? I think McGinn's call up is ridiculous at a time he is needed by his club for a seriously important game that could determine the Championship and therefore our clubs future. The comments from Aware are probably borne of frustration and I can certainly agree with that! As for McGinn, Sunderland head scout in Scotland is quoted as saying he's not equipped for the premiership in Eng. And I agree. I think he is a very good player but I'm surprised that he is actually getting called up. I can see the benefit on occassions of calling young players in to give them a taste so why not call JC in.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 12:36:34
There is no doubting McGinns potential and serving another year at hibs will make him a better player and Cummings, I don't think either should b in Scotland squad until then, I get the feeling from both big L and mr aware that you feel McGinn is over hyped? I totally disagree!

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2017 13:09:51
" Over hyped " I would say he's had the credit due for his performances. The fee mentioned for McGinn is £1.5 Mill from W Brom and Sun, that's the kind of cash Prem teams pay for potential, not the finished article. I just think that at this moment in time Scotland would not miss him where as we will miss him badly if he does not play against the Bairns.

Can't possibly be any truth in kenny miller coming to hibs in the summer, he's not been offered a contract so far and THIS of course creates rumours, hibs don't no what league they will play in next year, which will dictate finances, so I personally think at this moment it's millers agent stirring the pot.

Hope your right Tomo a backward step in my eyes.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Mar 2017 23:52:12
After 2nite we are in with a real chance of winning this league. If we do get up, I would think that their will be a number of changes. One might be punting Cummings to bring some cash in and IMO it is to soon at this stage for Oli Shaw. Therefore they might see Kenny Miller as a stop gap for a season. He probably won't be the only striker they bring in. He did say he wanted to finish his career at Hibs.

Around about the same time of the season under Stubbs we were a disgrace, players need to hav a good look at themselves big time Charlie's some of them think they are!
There not good enough not to stroll this league or any other league for that matter. I would play the development squad after that disgrace!

Believable2 Unbelievable0

01 Mar 2017 22:36:03
I never noticed it so much in the draws with Ayr and Raith but it was evident that Dunfermline and St Mirren pressed us high up the park and we couldn't deal with it, neither could our coaches. We are now in a dog fight at a time when our form is poor. Fyvie is right of his game and I would like to see Scott Martin in.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2017 19:32:58
Iv been saying this since last season and got criticised on here for it. We hit a bit of a purple patch and everyone thought the garden was Rosie. The truth is even under Stubbs we were poor except for the cup obviously. Would you take another cup at the expense of promotion? I would.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Mar 2017 03:05:51
No chance, promotion is key this year, the cup would be a huge bonus but we need promotion.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Mar 2017 11:46:21
We play the Cup semi 22nd April, about 7 weeks away and if we get thru to the final it's not until 27th May. I don't see the cup as a distraction. I do see the league as paramount and we will know by the time the semi rolls round whether or not we are going to win it! It's not an either or, if we don't get up their is no telling what next season brings. It could bring less ticket sales which means less income which could mean selling our best assets and that wouuld lessen our chance of promotion. We've been in this league to long, we are a big club in Scotland and I would like us to retain that status, that won't happen if we have to spend another year in this sh---y league.

It's been well documented that the guy has played at the highest level. African Cup winner, played in the Champions League and won numerous lesguess and cups wi Celtic. If you consider that you can only sign emergency loans from Scotland, who else could we have signed that would have been any better? Having played at the level he has I have to wonder how far down the leagues this guy has to go to find an acceptable level for some people. Are we saying this guy is a Scottish Div 2 plAyer, I think not, I also think he will Skoosh this league. From what I hear he is playing out time before moving to Blackburn, Mowbray keen to get him and we know how little he knows about gootball eh!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2017 22:49:43
The very angry dressing room that Lennon created worked a treat, great man management and tactics hibs were first to every ball and second ball and deserved more but any victory against the scum is good even better when it's in the cup tho, if that's the 3rd best team in Scotland holy rubbish!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Feb 2017 23:36:58
We certainly let them off the hook 2nite, it should have been 5. They're new signings just weren't up for it at all. Lennons going over worked a treat, he should do it before every game. big pay day 2nite, for the Ayr game and if we get thru we get a share of the gates in the semi's. I'm starting to dream again, they could nae, could they?

Keiran Richardson was a decent player but we don't need any more players in give the young guys a chance to shine league should be in the bag even though we're not playing great at the moment. I think a cup run is probably important from the financial point if we are going to bring in spl quality next season.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

18 Feb 2017 20:16:52
We're having this league handed to us on a plate yet when it seems easy to put more points between ourselves and the rest of the opposition we mess it up. Same old hibs. Forget the scottish cup last year, forget a run this year, the boys need to solely concentrate on promotion. We should be flying high yet we look no better or do we deserve any more than the rest of the clubs in this league. Shambles.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

18 Feb 2017 22:32:33
We're a big fish in a small pond, we're there to be shot at teams get men behind the ball most weeks and we have to find a way to break them down, our players seem to be better suited to more open games, cup games against so called better teams, we will escape this league, stuttering as we go, & another run in cup is a great possibility. it won't be pretty all the time, but the goal WILL be achieved.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2017 12:48:29
You have to bear in mind that this team is virtually the one that collapsed dramatically last season, please don't tell me that it couldn't happen again, I've been a Hibs fan to long to take anything for granted. Lennons rant yesterday was in an effort to make sure that we don't get a repeat. We should be further in front, and I think the reason we're not is as much down to him as the players. The five outfield players he brought in have not had the required impact, team selection has left me shaking my head at times, like against Ayr! Don't forget, because of his rant yesterday, he will have a very angry dressing room, let's hope we get the right response. I've looked at the next 5 matches for us Morton Dun Utd and Falkirk and at some point we all meet each other. If we win these games we will go up, If we don't we will have a battle to get there and that's what I expect.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2017 15:13:45
Big L, what's happened? If i wrote the comment did, you'd be telling me to stop being negative! Ha

Your comment is spot on, though.

I am always wary of a collapse, that's why i won't be confident unless we're 13 points ahead.

Before we went on our 4 game losing run last year, we were only winning by 1 goal each game and that was clear signs we weren't impressive. I just hope this isn't a repeat.

P. s we desperately need a 2nd player to get scoring. Holt and Keatings goalscoring rate is embarrassing.
We can't just have one goalscorer in this squad with the wages they're on.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Feb 2017 19:42:47
What's happening Mr A is that I'm sweating blood watching the eye bleedin stuff being served up by Lennons Hibs. Every time we get a chance to put space between us and the rest we fail to do so. Wins against Ayr and Raith would have put us 11 pt's clear, but we're not and I'm not happy about that. I feel that one defeat and we could be in a fight.

Surely all the criteria football clubs need these days to compete in the spl e. g. All seated stadiums, under soil heating, and if your not up to standard your not admitted, this obviously dosnt apply to the condition of the playing surface. Tynecastle is a disgrace and should not be allowed to stage home games until it's up to spl standards.

13 Feb 2017 18:40:06
They were that bad on a heavy ground, I was thinking we should start watering the ground a couple of days before the game. If the shoe was on the other foot they would do it. Why should we give them a good playing surface to play on EH!

If hibs season was to go all the way to playoff final, may 22nd, which we don't want but is possible, not to mention the cup final, kris commons can't be signed on another emergency loan until 18th -20th of February giving him a stay of 93 days? as Lennon had mentioned another emergency loan.

Agree1 Disagree0

We got Commons the last time because we had midfielders out! What would be the reason for it now? Just asking like.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Feb 2017 17:00:01
Commons wants game time as celtic wrap up the league, he wants a send off from the Celtic fans and Brendan Rodgers I doubt will deny him that once the leagues in the bag and he can start resting his bigger players. As good as he is or would be at ER his hearts not in it with us. He's definitely had a choice of a stay and farewell dance or a pay off and go to Hibs. Maybe Next season.

{Ed007's Note - Why should Commons get match time to say goodbye over a young lad who's working his butt of in training? I'd be disappointed if Rodgers fed his and his wife's already over inflated egos like that. Bif Efe never got to say goodbye.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Feb 2017 17:50:56
Big Efes to let sign was up and bags packed before the ink was dry on his new contract. Commons was given a choice, a fan favourite. Why wouldn't he get to say goodbye, celtic could pay him off and let him go enjoy his football, they don't need to pay him the same money to turn up to training.

He'll get a run out. Basically if he wanted to be at ER he'd be here. He can't expect to leave Celtic and make the same money he has been if he stays in scotland with his family, he's not getting any younger. Any loan deal was halted by himself.

Agree1 Disagree1

03 Feb 2017 20:21:48
Anyone who thought the money wasn't relevant to Commons was naive. It's a year since he played for Celtic, if he doesn't get the chance to take a bow it could be 17 months of playing with Celtic Dev team. What a way to finish your career.

His career is far from over and I don't think he's ever played for the development team he's trained in the last year and had. Bounce games but his first competitive game in a year was with hibs, but your right money obviously does matter and why should it not, personally I would pay hibs for a game but everyone's different.

What pi---s me off is they tell you nowt! They're worse than the masons with all their secrets. Why not just tell us why Commons and Stokes didn't sign. My point Tomo was that Commons could end up going 17 months without a game for Celtic and that's no way to end his career with them, and all for the cash. I said at the very beginning this deal wouldn't work unless he got a satisfactory pay off. I said he woudn't turn his back on £18K a week, check my posts on this subject. You said the money didn't count! All he's done is piss us around for months, during which time we should have been concentrating on signing players that wanted to come to us. A boost at this time could make the difference between winning this league or not!

First of all he's not bn messing us around for months because we signed him on an emergency loan only, and we liked what WE saw so we try to extend the loan or sign him
Secondly Celtic football club were the people playing hardball not commons, waiting for a last minute club to offer more than hibs two which did? but commons refused because he wanted to come to hibs, Celtic priced hibs out of a further loan deal and also would not give commons what he wanted as a pay off.

The only thing you have said that has any relevance is that Celtic wouldn't give him what he wanted as a pay off! That was always going to be the problem. His choice was stay for the money or play, if he had wanted to play for us he had to take what was on offer from Celtic and Hibs. Why should they pay for another club to have his services.

Regardless off whether commons sits in the stand at celtic or leaves with his pay off, the sum of money celtic pays out stays the same (in there eyes) . It's contracted to him whether he stays or he goes. He's not playing, therefore not contributing. Why would celtic play hard ball and stand in his way? If hibs paid a percentage of his wage every week then it knocks money off Celtics bill contracted to the player who is not in there plans. An easy one between the 2 clubs. He's not prepared to go any further than Edinburgh given his family situation. he's almost definitely going to have to take a wage drop eventually to suit him personally. I think the break down in talks stopped at his demands.

He can walk tomorrow! He takes what he's offered from Celtic and he is free to sign for whoever he wants as a free agent.

Their is a rumour that Hibs are waiting for Commons back injury to clear up before bringing him in on an emergency loan basis. If that's the case, then someone needs to explain the emergency loan rule for me!

As you mentioned before no clarity between hibs and fans regarding transfers and where were at with them, at the end of the day no fans no club! This should not be forgotten we don't want to be going backwards, as for the loan deal rules you've got me?
