I am sure I saw Bradley fortnam -Tomlinson at hibs training ground to day?
Heard Falkirk interested in him too - James Mcdonagh ex hibs youth coach who is gaffer for Falkirk has stated his intent.
Saw him score a solo goal against us for U20 last season for st johnstone reminiscent of Leigh griffiths wonder goal at tannadice a few years back.

Hibs are to sign a centre half on a free in this coming week and that's the last of the players coming in! Source from ER

ED what's happened to all the everton loans we were going to get.
I thought nelson surprisingly played ok at weekend. our first choice should be a CM who can defend and pass that's probably the only place where hearts were better than us. {Ed017's Note - we need streingh and creativity in midfield.not sure about the loans however im sure there are still new faces to come in this window

(1)
(1)

3 more to come in, that is what I've been told

happyhibbee

(2)
(1)

There is still 2 loans and possibly a signing to come

Liam craig supposed to be a box to box central midfielder, yet on nearly every occasion I've seen him play I find him playing in more like a centre half position. northd hibee

(0)
(1)

Hope we can get a good striker in to play alongside El Alagui. Hearts youngsters seem to be more direct, stronger and able to shoot more powerfully than ours. As far as Nelson is concerned every game he plays is the same. Not bad in the air,. tackles no bad but what makes him a poor player is his distribution once he gets the ball. Only one in five of his passes goes to a Hibs player

(0)

Craig should have the captaincy stript from him. Absolute petulant brat with referees. Captains need to influence not shout in their face.

Griffiths and his agent spotted outside the Balmoral this morning. 2 or 3 photo's now doing the rounds on Facebook. I know it's Facebook but the photo's are very convincing.

Leave it alone, not happening!

After Delia's comments at the weekend, extremely unlikely

(5)

Can we move on and stop all the bs

(2)
(1)

Delias comments were word for word wi strachans riordan comment, the best finisher at the club etc. and where did he go?

(2)
(1)

Rumours are with celtics latest signing that talks are back on and celtic may do business with us shortly fingers crossed

We really need to sign more players, any news ed? {Ed017's Note - not at the moment.desperately needing creativity on that midfield though.

(11)
(1)

Yeah as I keep saying a couple of injery's & were in deep trouble, some managers think they have a decent squad in training but in reality they are not good enough, many managers have made the same mistakes they don't realise the nature of the task. IF the board don't back Stubbs with adequate finance then I'm afraid we're in this league for the foreseeable future. We're not a bad team but were certainly not a good team

(10)
(3)

Watched the game today and frankly it reminded me too much of last seasons efforts.
Midfield is too pedestrian particularly Robertson who gives away too many needless fouls and was culpable at both Hearts goals. Sam Stanton was hardly involved and still seems to be suffering from last seasons hangover. Craig's penalty attempt was woeful. Lack of confidence again an issue.
Hibs goal was well taken but too little too late.
Though Hibs were more intent on not losing the game rather than winning it and the balance of the team, in my opinion, isn't right.
I know it's early in the season but more class is needed in central defence midfield and up front.
Sorry to sound pessimistic but this league is highly competitive and more quality players are needed urgently if we are going to have any chance of being promoted even as runners up.
PS
Can someone explain why Sow's elbow into Nelson's face in the first half was any different from the one in the second half when he was red carded.

(8)
(4)

One in first half drew blood. The one in the second didn't. He was at that all game.

Problem position is midfield for Hibs. Players aren't up for the it. Robertson and Craig aren't mobile enough.

El Alagui's goal was class and he looks a very good addition as well as Gray. For us to challenge at the top, we really need to offload OTJ, Nelson and a few others and try to bring in a very good CB, 2 CMS and 1 ST.

Why can't Booth get a game? We need more technically gifted players in the team - not on the bench. Too many players that just seem to fill the 11 rather than being excellent choices for their positions.

(9)
(2)

I personnely think today was good we moved the ball around and looked like a football team we need another 3players which I think will come in but if we play like that this season we will win more than we will lose. still a work in process but things are looking good disappointed to lose at swincastle but there's a long long way to go and I'm happy with the progress GGTTH

(7)
(4)

Agree, get Stevenson out of left back and get booth in. Put Stevenson in midfield, I think he is 100 times the player in midfield, throw Craig to hell. Personally, I just think Robertson just had a bad game, usually is one of the better players. Can understand why nelson was played, to combat height and strength of sow but surely we can get a better cb who is big and strong to switch in than nelson. Striker is needed to support alagui, provides many knock ons from headers and brings ball down well but nobody there to help him. Stanton needs to be in middle of the field not a winger, maybe even behind strikers.

(10)
(2)

Could not agree more with the guy who said we need a cb 2cms and 1st I would add a lb to that the only decent performers were the new boys Scott Allen looked good and must start next week

(4)
(1)

Robertson was terrible! And again it was his fault for the goals like the rangers second goal when he gave up cause of cramp and was fine. Nelson actually had quite a decent game tbh but always thought due to last year he was a liability.

(5)
(3)

I agree def need a supporting striker along with another winger. Kennedy impressed in the few moments he had. Poor crossing but that will come. Also scott allen did a job even if just 10 mins. Get him fit and I think him and stanton n harris will do damage. Then fit stevenson behind them as a sweeping defensive midfielder. Nelson did well today given being wrapped up like a mummy most of the game.

(7)
(0)

We'll bounce back should have got a point at least, never get any luck or rubs of the green

(5)
(3)

17 Aug 2014 21:46:07
Do you think we will get Griffiths?

(4)
(8)

No he's not going anywhere according to septic

(6)
(2)

"Moved the ball around and looked like a football team"? "Should have got a draw"? Must be delusional. We were totally muscled out of it in the second half, Hearts looked fitter, stronger, mentally tougher and had a far greater team spirit than we showed. There was no hint of a pattern of play.

(1)
(4)

Rubbish this is the first time in about 2year I was proud of the way we played we still need a couple of players but I'm glad the way things are going if we play a little stronger we will win more games than we will lose this season

(4)
(3)

If we play the way Stubbs wants us to play we need players who are comfortable to receive the ball under pressure. Hearts pressed the game from start to finish giving no Hibs player any time on the ball. There are signs that we are going in the right direction but we need to get behind the management and the team especially the youngsters as the whole team will respond to positivity. If we can keep the ball and make the right pass when the opportunity arises then we will see a Hibs team going in the right direction also if we have the ball the other team can't score!

(3)
(0)

I think we competed well and did not fold. Very few chances and not much between the teams. Defence was ok. Oxley only one save to make. Still need to strengthen and start with Allen instead of bench.

Hallam hope no longer looks like signing, so Alan Stubbs has turned his attention to Liverpool's Kriszti�n Adorj�n, who is available on a free

(7)
(4)

Are there 2 worse midfielders than Robertson and Craig

(7)
(3)

I take you back to Robertsons` miss from six yards against Falkirk, that should have been enough for him to be let go.

(1)
(8)

Stubbs knows now that this bunch of jokers that got us relegated are not good enough, Craig worst captain ever in a hibs shirt now worst pen miss! Robertson headless can't tackle, Stanton and handling anonymous as usual both can't tackle. Also need to question Stubbs decision making in the last two games to put subs on has been late and tactics poor today one up and no pace and shots at a novice hearts keeper!

(7)
(3)

We will not win the league or play offs with this lot poor first division game today and what we will be watching for the next couple of seasons let's not get brainwashed by what we read is happening, I've stopped going to gorgi to watch this lot as they get travel sickness going the five miles and I cannot remember the last committed performance I have seen since we came from behind when sheilds and oconner scored

(3)
(6)

Surely he won't get back in after his suspension.

(3)
(3)

Work in process disappointed with result but happy with the progress and the style of football were playing on ward and upward Stubbs your heading in the right direction

(4)
(3)

We were worse than livi last week as well. Very lucky to get 3 points. Stubbs need to sort out that midfield!

(4)
(6)

We all need to calm down. You go on about Robertson, he is usually one of our better players albeit he had a poor game, plus you're not going to get much better. Handling and Stanton are still young, decent players who should be in and out the team not starting, but if so Stanton shouldn't be on the wing, should be in the middle. Never been convinced by Craig but the bad thing is I don't think we'll get rid of him so there's no point shouting and balling about him. Another 2 midfielders are needed (in the middle and a winger of good standard) and another striker to support alagui who looks really good. Do that and well do well, going to Tynecastle is always going to be hard no matter how good the team is, derby can be won by anyone. All I'm saying is we have good foundation, we just need a couple more and we'll be good, it's not doom and gloom already.

(5)
(4)

Lets look at the facts today we looked like getting a point until the last 15 min, and it was away game. The new signings have still to adjust and will become a bigger part of the first 11 letting Stubbs rest our younger players when required to help develop them. We may sign one or more players or get loan players in that will help us. The way I see it is we played Hearts and Rangers both away from Easter Road and we where always in the game and never gave up. and we will take points off them as there nothing between the teams. Stubbs has only been in the job weeks and his coaches less than that so we have started Postive and we be in the mix come the end lots off UPS and DOWNS to come but that's why we LOVE THE HIBEES. Ian Murry and Stuart McColl both managers having bad start to season lots wanted both as manager so let's get behind Stubbs and the whole club again.

Poll question I think Hibernian was 100% right to reject David Low bid. Hibernian already have one off Scotland, top company men running Hibernian football club. Sir Tom Famer has made millions off pounds in his day and he rebuild Easter rd, and the trainning centre, Sir Tom knows nothing about football but that's why he got football managers, and a board to look after his investment. Will Hibernian end up like Rangers, Hearts, Dundee under his leadership I don't think he let that happen. David Low CONSORTIUM a celtic man leading the take over will turn us into a rangers with his backers wanting a return on there investment. Sir Tom will sell up one day but he brought the club as a gift to people off Leith AND I think he might just gift it to the fans when he had enough if we can fund it.
James McDonaugh has found new employment with Falkirk and we thank him for his time at Easter rd. But its a new start at youth, and senior level with new managers and coaches coming in so maybe the time was right for jAMES to move on. Eddie May did great job at Falkirk and will deliver for us

(3)

Sale of golden generation did some stands and training facility. Its like a failing company building a nice new office for its incompetent staff. We also sold space around ground for cash so club must have funded quite a bit plus paid off debt itself.

We absolutely should have invested some decent cash in team.

Won't be offered a contract according to the Evening News

Rangers r keek that squad will never win the league, if we get 3/4 more signings we surley have a great chance of going up

damo72

(9)
(8)

ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE 3/4 we won't get 2 lucky to get 1 and that's pushing it but definitely a few new faces in Januaryfor strength for a push for championship title WATCH. GGTTH

(6)
(7)

I didn't think even before we seen rangers at the start of the season that they would be main challengers. I always said hearts would be our main competitors, rangers have played in the depths of Scottish football for past two seasons, have a diddy of a manager in McCoist, and to be honest after seeing them get beat off raith rovers in that cup last year I was rubbing my hands at the thought of going to Ibrox and giving them a tanking Ivan sproule style.

(3)
(4)

Hearts were just as bad keek

(5)
(5)

By January it might be too late for a push

(4)
(3)

I don't believe it would be too late for a push if we are 3rd or 4th, something like that, then we could really put pressure on the teams above

(3)
(1)

Not that long ago we were speculating on signing McFadden. But now there is no mention of him. Have we dropped interest in him? Has he turned us down? Anyone got any info/idea?

(1)
(0)

He's wanting to go down south was hedging his bets so hope he doesn't sign

(1)
(1)

Ed just wondering if this could be an option
1000 hibs fans pay into a private account £100 givening us a kitty to assist in the signing griffits £100,000 then assuming hibs put up the rest and that he would come for 7k a week. {Ed017's Note - email the club and ask if it's viable

(2)
(1)

Seems like a good idea. Probably more than 1000 would definetly go for this and potentially a few with a larger amount than £100 which would give us a decent budget plus if the biardpay for the rest we could definetly get sparky back home

They might out muscle us and corners worry me and we need craig and robertson to win that midfield battle, i'm sure we, ll create chances I hope we take them! C, mon the cabbage!!

Any hibs transfer rumours?

Hibs1875

(2)

Nelson told he can leave. we must be getting another central defender in

(9)
(0)

Seen on sky transfer news Stubbs has told nelson he can go looks like he certainly knows what he is doing

(11)
(1)

Thank god for that

damo72

(10)
(2)

At last.

(6)
(1)

Still think we could do with 3 players. An experienced player in their late 20's who could play both centre half/left back would be ideal. Nothing against Stevenson but we need better in left back position. Someone similar to Gray who could help Hanlon, like he's been helping Forster. Also centre mid and a striker.

(2)
(2)

We have that already in Booth, Calderwood & Fenlon shattered his confidence but he will do a job given a run of games {Ed017's Note - agreed.

(5)
(1)

Fenlon will take nelson he ticks all his boxes he is Irish

(3)
(2)

I think I'm actually the only person that likes Stevenson, agreed he's not a left back or defender but what was it 2 or 3 seasons ago he was our player of the year in a midfield role? Think he's a good midfielder who's put the team ahead of himself and played where he's told to without causing a dispute.

(6)
(2)

Maybe on to 1 there m8 ggtth.

(1)
(1)

Och, here we go again with overrating Stevenson.

He won player of the year in a season when we were awful!

Out of his whole career so far, the only season where he hasn't been a regular, is when we actually finished in a decent position being 4th! Every other season we've been in a bad league position and he's played his part in it!

Our aim is to be 4th in SPL. Stevenson is not 4th in league level at all. Fair enough him being 1st team this year as lower SPL/Championship is his level, but he should just be a sub at absolute most when we're back in SPL.

(0)
(1)

I think Stevenson is an average player but a hibby at heart he plays for the team the badge and the manager that makes him worth his salt

Ed. do you think anymore signing will be in place before the Derby? Any news on hallam hope joining us? {Ed017's Note - id be surprised if anyone came in before sundays game.its getting towards the business end of the window now so if we are bringing anyone else in it should become apparent soon.i hope we do get hope but if not him another striker.we are about three or four short of having a strong enough squad in my opinion so hopefully there will be business done soon.

(6)
(1)

We can only hope that we get Hallam.

Taar should be a concrete signing. {Ed017's Note - very good

(3)
(4)

Ed, Petrie hasn't denied that one of the reasons him and Farmer turned down low's offer was that it involved no financial consideration in respect of their equity interest and shareholder loan in Hibernian FC. They both want to make a profit. no problem with that but don't kid us that they have hibs at heart. They had never been to football match before buying hibs. {Ed017's Note - i think we all know that both these parties would have to gain substantially though any buy out but at least they arent just giving up the reigns cheaply i suppose

(4)
(0)

Is hallam a possibility would b a good addition

damo72

Ed, why would Celtic boss say sparky is ill and not play him when he is perfectly fit? I hate that Celtic take our players and not play them!! {Ed017's Note - to be honest this is the reason given for him not being in the squad midweek.although sparky was never officially a hibs player i know what you mean.would hate for talent like that to be wasted again.

(6)
(1)

Thankfully, if he was to ever go out on loan, it would be to Hibs, as he is that stubborn :)

(2)
(1)

We r celtics feeder club, have bin since 1875 v. meldrew hibee

(2)
(6)

Griffiths was never a hibs player, we only had him on loan, we should have signed him much earlier in his career

(6)
(0)

We did. We released him at a young age. Whoever done that should be hunted down.

(3)
(0)

I contacted Hibs about Griffiths when he was at Livingston and Dundee urging them to take a look at him/sign him. We don't deserve to have him as Hibs had two good opportunities to get him at a very reasonable price. Just over £100,000 in both cases when he went from Livingston to Dundee and Dundee to Wolves.

You contacted him you lol good scouts get signings

Hibs got albert taar on trial that's whoz in the pic that had leaked this week attacking midfielder hope hex no scared to shoot like robertson {Ed017's Note - on his way home now apparently.

(12)
(3)

Only came on loan yesterday

(3)
(3)

Not offered contract

Only came in on trial and will be there till Monday. Does not have a good track record though.

13 Aug 2014 22:15:41
Sparky wasnt even included in the squad for the win at st. johnston so could he of had a fall out with management or talking with hibs? What do you think Ed? {Ed017's Note - he has apparently been unwell this week and this was why he was left out.

(4)
(5)

Knew we shouldn't of got our hopes up : (

(2)
(4)

I am not sayin he is on his way to Hibs as I still don't believe it will happen. What I can confrm though is he was 100% not ill and was fully fit. Also 20 mins before kick of HE re-tweeted all the abusive insults the celtic fans we sending him, which the ssn presenter even touched upon in his commentary. Might not be coming to Hibs but can't see him being at Celtic for much longer!. {Ed017's Note - i agree that he will be either sent on loan or sold in this window.how big a gesture would that be towards the Hibs supporters for the board to bring him in.opportunity here but will be more than likely missed again.

(4)
(5)

Have to say that the Celtic have and always thought too much of themselves. They think that they should be signing players like Gareth Bale or Ronaldo "Celtic players" they really need to get a grip.

While they`ll win the league at a canter they should be trying to bring through more of their young players like the rest of Scottish football. They have a player with real ability in Griffiths and if they let him go then they are daft. In saying that he`s a person and needs to screw the nut.

I thought he was the best player I`d seen in a Hibs shirt and likely to see but he`s not coming back so can we move on.

I would love to see him back at ER but for his sake I would like him to turn it around there and make these idoit Celtic fans eat their words. If he messes up at Celtic he`ll end up like Riordan washed up at 30 with 4 or 5 kids still to feed.

(4)
(4)

It would depend at what cost, Celtic spent a lot of money on him for the benefit of Celtic, no one else. there will be small clubs down south that think nothing of spending a million on a player. There is no chance we could compete in that market.
I think once again we are concentrating on an absurd distraction. Let Mr Stubbs and the club inform us if and when any player is signed.

(2)
(0)

Was speaking to a guy today who is good friends with Leigh and it was delia that said he was unwell but Leigh said he was fine, he said he was going to wait to se what happens at the weekend and if isn't included will speak to delia to find out if he wants him there or not, Leigh also said there is no truth in any rumours at this stage.

(4)
(4)

If he was a true hibee he would I know not likely to happen, drop his wage to atleast make a move feesable. What would you think LD would part with for a league winning striker that is a hibee at heart Ed? {Ed017's Note - I'd be very surprised if it happened at all to be honest.it's all came from a celtic post stating he wasn't in their plans.

Griifiths not in celtic squad tonight. On the bus to fester rd?

(6)
(8)

We don't need him, we have Cummings and Handling

(5)
(10)

Damn fecking right he is, and he'll bulldoze the jambo's at the weekend. Sign him up Stubbs!

(8)
(3)

Cummings and handling over griffiths?! Are you mad? Firstly handling isn't really a striker, the games in which handling has played well is when he's behind the striker supporting him in a more CF role. Secondly Cummings is 1 millionth of a microscopic spec of a player in comparison to griffiths. That's just my opinion.

(7)
(4)

We do need Griffiths we miss him!!

(6)
(3)

Obviously not much thinking here. he is on a contract Celtic will notallowhim to leave unless for a million plus also he is on 10k aweek. surely he ain't that stupid. or is he

(4)
(6)

He's on £4k with add ons £8 k

(3)
(2)

Cummings is good but handling is useless in all positions imo {Ed017's Note - I don't know like.handling was good against rangers.

Sparky is on 14k a week at smeltic. 100% true, from the horses mouth

(1)
(15)

no where near it go back to your horse cause there's naigh chance

(11)
(3)

I heard he was on 4. Some Diddy just rejected Celtic to get better wages at standard liege. No chance they're dishing out as much as 14 k for players.

(7)
(1)

Ed. hibs have turned down Low's offer. Do u think we should have a farmer out call? Might concentrate his mind. {Ed017's Note - chase out the man who saved the club?

(7)
(2)

Griff is on 9k a week at Celtic fact bonuses bring him to 12k a week

(3)
(7)

Yeah I heard from a good source that he's on 4 but if he scores a certain amount of goals I don't know how many & the team are playing well it can go up to 8 with bonuses. To my knowledge he's never received 8 for one reason or another, anyway why shouldn't he come to the cabbage? Like riordan before him the great unwashed are just ruining another great player, there's only one way a football can improve & that's with first team football. He could bang in 100 goals a season & Celtic still won't play him. It's the west coast thing.

(8)

Griffiths will be playing for Celtic 2night I bet you!!!

Poll Question asking if Farmer should sell I would say NO, Farmer has been good for Hibernian, he saved us and has rebuilt Easter Road, and has given us a great training ground for players to develop there skills. Two LEAGUE CUPS have been won under his leadership, and runners up SCOTTISH CUP. Unfortanly teams have under achived, in his time at the club that has resuilted in Managers being moved on. Mistakes have been made by the BOARD, Managers, and Players that resuilted in us sliping down a league. This season has seen Big Changes at BOARD level, Youth set up, and Coaching Staff, as the club look to the furture. The club will require time for all the changes to show inprovement. Why with all this going on we sell let's give the new people a change to rebuild the club with sir tom in charge. If it does not work out its time to go

He's not even in the squad mate

Relegation could be the best thing to happen to hibs. Restructuring, focus on youth and a re-bonding with the fans. Onwards and upwards I say!

Some people are so delusional when it comes to players wages.

100% false that he'd only be on £4k at Celtic. Why would he go there just to get £500-per-week more?

He will be on £8k before add-ons at the very least. And that is the reality.

(3)
(2)

Doubt it. You really think Celtic, in a league with no competition will be throwing 8K and plus at players? Look griffiths didn't even travel tonight, highly arguable that Celtic would pay 8K for a player to sit out games.

(3)
(0)

On the STF issue I respect everything he has done for us but like all of us he's not getting any younger and the club needs to have a succession plan in place. in my opinion now is the time to make a change although I am sceptical about Low and his motives as a non Hibee

Farmer has been the Bain in Hibernian ever since he took over, the guys a clown, he's told everyone he's not interested in football. Yes he saved us from uncertainty but I'm pretty sure if it wasn't him then it would have been someone else, get rid of him as quick as poss, anyway what's the worst that could happen? Hertz & rangers went pear shaped & it's not done them any harm has it. Both still have better squads than us

(3)
(8)

The best thing post. best for rod he don't need a pl squad and wages anymore

(2)
(1)

Am sorry but I almost saw HIBERNIAN go to the wall. If Mercer had got his way there would be no hibernian, and Edinburgh would only have one club. Famer brought Hibs because he a Leith man and wanted to give something back to the area. Farmer not a football person but am sure he intersted in what gong on with his investment, You don't put millions into a project with out having trust in the people running it for you. I don't remember anyone else coming in to save us at the time. Hands of Hibs found Sir Tom and he done the right thing a millonare from leith who could save us and he did never forget that fact if you a hibee. You ask what's the worst thing that could happen it did and I hope I never have to go though that again as there might not be a sir tom next time. Look at the clubs managers who have wasted millons on poor players over the years

Was speaking to James McDonaugh at my bowling club in Davidsons mains on Sunday and he said Hibs had enquired about taking LG on loan.

(14)
(5)

You can always hope! Griff would tear up that league

(12)
(0)

We all want him here, but best not to talk about it as people always go mental saying we won't get him back, even though It's not impossible. I doubt John Collins would get on with him

(8)
(3)

He is not a better striker than Boyd or sow

(4)
(15)

Why on on loan? Same thing that happened before would happen again. Buy him if that was an option but we didn`t do it then so it`s get on with trying to get promoted.

I hope for his sake that he gets his head down and makes a go at Celtic because he don`t want to wake up in 10 years and think what if like Riordan.

(7)
(1)

He's not better than sow or Boyd? You're either a hearts or a rangers fan or you were dropped on your head as a baby. Repeatedly. Many times.

(8)
(5)

And that's why sow and boyd are playing in championship teams, both big donkeys

(7)
(1)

Pmsfl sow and Boyd better than griff yer having a laugh

(7)
(1)

Griffiths is fast, a finisher, a dribbler, can score from anywhere, set piece specialist, and versatile in positioning. Everything that Boyd and sow do no possess.

(4)
(1)

Well maybe Boyd can finish, but Leigh is superior in pretty much every way.

Strong rumours that LG will be a Hibs player
(on loan) by Friday, (even the JAMBOS are talking about this) Celtic want Hibs to pay all of his wages to free up more cash which could be a stumbling block. Heffernan has been told by Stubbs that he can leave as he's not part of his plans and will look to bring in 1 more loan player from EFC.

(10)
(5)

Strong rumour? Seems like everyone but the hibs fans know about this hope this is true.

(4)
(7)

Seems to good to be true mate

(6)
(2)

I hope the part about Heffernan being told he can leave is true, because he was awful against Livingston. Did not look interested. The rest of the team played well, but surely we cannot afford to have any passengers.

(6)
(5)

If only both were true.

Heffernan is useless and turns around instead of running, in fear of getting injured. He will not help us score.

Wages thing with Griffiths is bull though, make up your lies better :P
He is on £10k + bonuses

In an ideal world for Griffiths, I think he'd like to play for Hibs the most but on £10k per week.

(5)
(3)

I would love this to be true but its not going to happen I love Griffiths to be at hibs again

(5)
(2)

Sparky on £10k yer having a laugh he's on £6k max and was on £3k at hibs he would come back for £4k fact,

(5)
(1)

Scott brown is on £25k per wk at celtic. sparky is on approx £8k pw northd hibee

(3)
(2)

How do you know this, football mgr?

(3)
(0)

Unless we get a separate backer to pay LG wages, we can't afford 4', 8, 10k.
It would be fantastic to see him but who says AS wants him. Heff needs to go looked awful on Sat, even if he is not fully fit, two more in tops is as much as we can expect due money constraints, one EFC loan and a n other maybe a CB for cover

(0)
(0)

Brown signed new 5 yr deal 2yrs ago on basic wage of £25k pw. it was all over daily record back then. northd hibee

(1)
(0)

If Alan Stubbs doesn't want him he's out his nut. I've got no problem with taking someone like hope on loan from Everton or some other player Stubbs wants, but if griffiths is available, he'll be an person to pass it up.

(2)
(1)

I heard we can get him for 150k. Why not? Some rockets believed it last time.

(1)
(0)

That's a goddamn steal if true, though doubt it. Griffiths will be an easy million or 2 for Celtic to get.

(0)
(0)

Haha why is LG goijng to take a steph backwards for a stint at Hibs. If he goes on loan it will be league one and no a mid table hibs championship side

Maybe cause the only team he'd want to go to if he left Celtic would be his supported club to help them out?

Hi ed do you think we will get any more lads in before derby game. IU think we need another striker or 2 as heff is not interested could do with another cb or keeper as I am not convinced by oxley even though he scored lol. I am slightlly nervious for sundays game hate playing the pddle drinkers at tynie. any more on the sparky rumour I don't think he'll be back anyway but just thought I'd ask. Could Stubbs not use his celtic link and bring in a few boys from there instead of the everton lads. such as zaluska or george. ggtth in stubbs we trust {Ed017's Note - im with you buddy.hate tynie games to be honest.nothing fresh at the moment

12 Aug 2014 02:01:57
Ed are we interested in anyone or in talks to sign anyone on loan or anything I personally think we need a st and a cb still {Ed017's Note - gone a bit quiet hasnt it.im sure there are more deals to come though

(4)
(0)

Ed: if Low and others get club it might be cash available for players. not sure if Kane's group would have the money. there hearts are in the right place but would struggle to raise funds.

(2)
(2)

13 Aug 2014 17:02:45
I worry that bidders think they can get the club on the cheap and fans behind them, with no prospect of extra funds because the fans want Petrie out. Comments from Low and others need to be treated with caution. Suspect they don't have the money to really make a difference.

Just heard

Ed what has happened to mcdonagh. He is coach at Falkirk was he sacked by hibs? Nothing on hibs site {Ed017's Note - dont want to speculate only wish him well.

(11)

Is that not the job Eddie Mays coming in to

(14)

On hibs site May in for 8 to 17 year olds. No one yet for under 20s unless Stubbs will look after them as well.

James was told take a 70% wage cut or you can walk

He chose Falkirk. Massive loss to Hibs

Rumour coming from parkhead griffiths to hibs on loan

(14)
(10)

Only if hibs can pulled together the wages so petrie better get his act together if he wants to get promotion

(15)
(4)

Just heard he's at er on Tuesday but there's a lot more to it

(10)
(8)

We Look good the now, but this is exactly what we need. Hearts have got gomis and buaben, rangers have miller and boyd. Griffiths is the player who'll lead and influence our team. If we sign him, promotion is very achievable.

(15)
(2)

What's it with a Tuesday. Everyone is going to be signed on a Tuesday will believe it when it happens. Ggtth

(7)

Gomes and baubles pmsfl did you watch them against rangers headless chickens lol

Ed is Leigh coming to us on loan just a rumour I head {Ed017's Note - dont get excited yet.the rumour is there but hasnt hit mainstream sources as yet.

(10)
(9)

I've been told septic are trying to off load him but don't know if it's to hibs

(12)
(4)

His heart appears to be only in one place and that's ER so it would make common sense for him to come back would Leeann and Stubbs take him on board stupid not to take a prolific goalscorer and bring him to ER.

(13)
(2)

No matter how often a rumour is repeated it does not become the truth.

(10)
(4)

Would love him back but I'd imagine wages would be a complication for starters and realistically it's unlikely we'll see him back playing for hibs any time soon

(9)
(5)

Mm he wants what he was on £4k

(8)
(4)

Surely we could string that together? If rp gets his act together

(6)
(3)

They need to sell season tickets and get bums on seats. leigh would certainly encourage many hibs fans to return.

Someone wants to buy hibs two people in fact a consortium and Kane I think thoughts ed would you welcome this? And what do you think the future would be like if we had new ownership I think it may be interesting to see where this goes hopefully it'll mean more investment on the player market? {Ed017's Note - hmmm.not sure about this until details of their plans are made public.

(16)
(2)

It's a 5way battle for control of hibs

(7)

09 Aug 2014 17:02:40
James Collins scores 2 goals the day. Typical.

(10)
(3)

Went today ed full of optimism after displays against Dundee it'd and rangers. Very disappointing, keeper gives me no confidence and Stanton heffernan and Robertson don't look fit. {Ed017's Note - first half we were excellent at times.heff didnt seem interested at all.second half was a bit scrappy.but three points in the bag which is important.dont think sam is suited to a wide role.playing off the striker would be best.

(6)
(4)

Critical point is how much financial backing each consortium has AND their future plans.
You have to be careful - remember Clive Rowland who milked Hibs before selling them down the river (Mercer)

(3)
(3)

James collins got no service he got the ball humpted up to him if wee played Wi wingers n midfielders who didny pass backwards he would have got goals {Ed017's Note - true but in the past now.

(8)
(1)

Agree 1st half was good but 2nd not so.
Wonder if this has anything o do with 120 mins. / hard game at Ibrox with 40 of these minutes playing with 10 men.

(10)
(0)

I thought hibs played great today not the full package yet but mass improvement on last season {Ed017's Note - first half was best ive seen at a er for a while.second half was to scrappy,we didn't control it as we should.3 points though

(9)
(0)

Who is Clive Rowland? Maybe David Rowland

(2)
(2)

Collins was one of the worst forwards I have seen, couldn't control the ball and ended up running back to retrieve it, not a great striker of the ball and had chances but could not live up to the billing

(6)
(5)

A bit like Aligui then

(1)
(11)

To the guy and Ed. saying Collins would have got goals with better service, I'm not so sure - what was wrong with the service he had last game against Hearts at ER when he missed an absolute sitter from 5 yds.
Colllins now playing at a lesser level and will score like Doyle.

(3)
(1)

10 Aug 2014 14:13:00
good first half. Heffernan is not good enough.

(5)
(3)

Rowland, try David Duff & Jim Gray.
Duff was such a chancer he ended up in the clink.

(3)
(0)

It was David Rowland who almost put club out of Buisness by loans to Duff n Gray with high interest,

(4)
(2)

Tf will have to gain somehing before he sells he's a businessman, ed I don't think I was that far away when I mentioned the pub chain guys, also a few ex players with pubs, but I think the 3 m offered would buy a stand not all 4 and a trainin ctre?

(2)
(3)

I really hope it's not Doyle he will sell us down the river fact

(2)
(1)

Who's to blame? Rowland, who offers a loan at high interest rates or the chancers who accept the offer and squander it on hotels and the property market. Duff n Gray were the ones to blame.

(2)
(0)

Get you facts right. Duff and Gray saved Hibs by refusing to sell their shares (even although it was a small % of the total) to Wallace Mercer ensuring he could not get a sufficient amount to force a takeover.
Rowland and his wife (who was on the Board of Hibs) raised money through a share issue to the fans. This money used to purchase a chain of pubs etc in the Bristol area - the theory being these would create revenue for Hibs.
Unfortunately these belonged to Rowland and were losing money big time.
Rowland, after milking the cow, decided to get out of Hibs by selling to Mercer but he could not get control due to Gray and Duff's refusal to sell.
Gray and Duff were puppets of Rowland who had reputation for asset stripping as happened at Hibs.
However, they saved Hibs from a disaster/extinction.

Ed will we bring in any more permanent players so Stubbs said a while back there was money at hibs to spend yet hibs haven't spent anything on players we often fail to invest in players which I think is partly our own downfall we always go after free agents not saying that the singings we have made are bad cause that's not the case at all anyway yeah enough of my rambling {Ed017's Note - im sure we will find out soon buddy.

Its the start of a new season and its time that Hibernian fans get behind the team and all the new signings. Its time to forget about Hearts, Rangers and what's going on with other teams and let Stubbs get on with getting the club back to where we belong. We played good football against dundee utd and rangers with mostly the same team that was poor last season. Stubbs has changed the coaches at the club and this might have come at a cost of a few new players but the resuilt off the coaching has been good. let's hope we start to inprove

If its the same guy I just found on google, plays with Cannes and has 20 goals in 80 games. Fairly decent, plus he'll be playing in a less challenging league. And he's only 23, potential?

Decent even though you haven't seen him play in 2 years?

You don't have a clue, as neither do I :)

MK Dons Hibee fan says he was exciting there but I don't know why teams like Sheff Utd wouldn't want him if he was good.

(1)

Looked for videos and he has a go at deffenders and uses a bit of of pace. These two things makes me think he'll be a decent winger:)!

What medication is he on?
Even if Griffiths likely to come back to Hibs {which is very doubtful) any business would be done well away from ER.
Enjoy good rumours not fantasy fiction.

(4)
(1)

Please let's move on from LG very unlikely at best, let's see what the lads from Everton can bring, also let's leave McFadden and Paddy McCourt as well. We looked a lot better against rangers. Maybe get another two or three before the window, and hope we can stay injury free.

(4)
(1)

Griffiths is my mate's cousin, he still lives in Edinburgh. that's why he might've seen him on Easter Road

(3)
(1)

Lets leave griffiths?! No being funny, but see if there's even the slightest chance we could get Leigh back (be that a year loan or permanent) we should be doing everything in our power to get him. We look a good team who'll be challenging going on that performance against rangers, think how better we'd be with Leigh leading the attack?
