Lithuanian mid coming for talks tomorrow, name Slivka.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Jul 2017 02:36:29
Big lad, technically good, puts a challenge in and passes the ball. From what I've watched he played central or wide right as a Juventus kid then was farmed out on loan a few times. Only 22.
Not a bad signing if he comes.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 08:57:58
At least his name is easier to pronounce than the his fellow countryman we signed!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 12:14:40
It would appear that Hibs have got some kind of scouting system going on in Lithuania. At least they will have no problem with OUR weather!

Just witnessed a joke tonight. ridiculous pens and efe was shocking! If we want second place, then let's get the signings we need announced NOW! . Murray up front on his tod is no good! QUESTIONS Mr Lennon?

Efe's had no games till 2nite and very little pre season. Agree, not good! Lenny pinning his hopes on Stokes, hope he's got plan b just in case.

22 Jul 2017 13:24:18
Efe was the same player last night from the first half of our Scottish cup semi defeat to Aberdeen. Wants to many touches on the ball in dangerous areas and tries to step out of position to much. His confidence is great to watch when he's able to pull it off however he will get caught a fair few times over the course of the season. A great defender if he applied a bit more no nonsense to his game.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 18:55:13
Man ITK saying the Stokes deal could go right down to the wire, he's saying it's not done and dusted as some would have us believe! Non UK club/ s interested.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Jul 2017 20:00:13
If that's true he's only going to drag out a contract offer here for more money. We can't afford to waste another few weeks on a player more interested in money than playing.

If it's done, fine - he's not my preferred choice but if he turns up and performs this time I'll back him.
If it isn't done and he's looking for more money then retract the offer and sign someone that wants to play for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 20:41:47
TBF he's looking at his last decent contract and their are clubs that are paying bigger bucks than us. I've always felt that strikers should be paid a good bit more than the rest. Seems to be the way down south.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 21:02:44
I would agree usually.

This one is dragging itself out and if it isn't happening I'd like them to have enough time to get someone else sorted so they're not taking half the season to settle.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 17:25:27
surely time to start hetting rid of the deadwood like graham? any news on him being sold ed?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 Jul 2017 18:48:34
Other than Graham don't think we've got much deadwood left. Danny Handling possibly we've already put Stanton out on loan for the final year of his contract. The next player to be told he is no longer required in my opinion will be Liam Fontaine and that won't be until January or towards the end of the campaign. only due to Porteous progress.

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Jul 2017 13:58:51
Stokes left Blackburn.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 Jul 2017 14:17:04
Likely to be announced Monday. Really don't think he is what we need this time round.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 14:28:28
stokes will score a barrowload for you, lennon won't take any off field crap off him, he will get him motivated, are you forgetting his cup final performance against sevco already?

Agree2 Disagree1

21 Jul 2017 14:50:40
Stokes is a done deal. I'm telling you. He was released a week ago and hasn't been announced yet due to other 'potential' signings that are on the cards. It's looking like there may be a Double announcement over the course of the weekend. Watch this space.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 15:10:50
Any idea who the second player will be.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 15:17:06
One proper cup final performance against Sevco doesn't quite negate the previous 4 months absence in the league (trying to beat Sevco to the title) .
Scored 5 in 14 games.
In the Championship.

If he signs he needs to bring at least his early Celtic form with him.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Jul 2017 16:21:29
stubbs had him playing wide, he needs to be played up front like he was with hooper to be scoring regularly, but even out wide he will do a job for you.

To be fair, when he is at his best, he barely runs anyway. So I'd take an injured Commons haha.

Commons signing.

Interview on TV saying he'll sign if his back surgery is successful and he recovers.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 18:51:03
If Commons can get fit what a player we would have on our hands. It would be folly to think at his age he will reach the heights of his Celtic glory days but what a player to be able to bring off the bench for the last thirty minutes of a game. His knowledge off the pitch could be even more important given some of the talented prospects we've got coming through, an older experienced winner he'll command their respect.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 19:13:33
Listening to him it doesn't seem likely, seems to have been thru a lot wi his back.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 19:53:46
Back surgery is a tough one.
He took less than 6 weeks to get close to fit on loan and by the end of that he was playing properly and getting involved tracking back etc as well as making the runs forward.

More than happy to take him on at that level in a few months or however long his recovery takes. He's a proper pro and the squad took to him in a short time, treats the fans the right way too - perfect mentor figure for Martin, Fraser Murray and any of the younger players coming through right now. Could even teach Simon Murray and Shaw a few things too.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jul 2017 17:36:16
Looking at our new 6ft 3in striker and the way he plays he looks the real deal and a sturdy hard player like mixu was.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

20 Jul 2017 18:05:31
From what I watched on YouTube he's not massively mobile but he makes the right runs, looks strong and can attack a cross properly.

Great way to start your new job - out on the lash the night before you sign when you haven't had any of a pre-season to get fit.

Not looking good already.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 16:52:19
How do you know he was on the lash? How do you know he has not had a pre season?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 16:53:12
havn a pint before train to Aberdeen today like everyone else.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 17:22:47
He's spent half of the last 8-10 weeks trying desperately to agree a severance deal with Blackburn while also travelling to Ireland for golf (with Lennon) and back and forth up to here.
Given how desperately he's been trying to leave Blackburn who has he trained with and where?

The lash comment may have been an assumption but it's a fair one given his past conduct off the field at every club he's played at. Infamous for it during both prior stints here and his whole time a Celtic.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jul 2017 17:56:44
Why don't supporters like you give potential signings the benefit of the doubt and let them sign for our great club and prove that they want to play for us. If afterwards they let themselves down and us fair enough slate them but give these players a break. The wages Stokes is meant to be getting won't break the bank of T. F.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jul 2017 18:14:04
Is it unfair for 'supporters like me', after paying to watch 'the player in question' destroy squad morale and wreck a promotion tilt already FOR OUR CLUB, to question the potential signing of the player again?
After picking a fight with his new captain within 48hrs of signing last time and keeping fully fit in-form players out of the side while he took two months to get remotely fit or interested?

Forgive me for wanting players with the right attitude at the club I pay to watch and support.

I hope Lennon does magically return the form of his earlier career, and I will gladly apologise if it happens, but on balance of the evidence I've already paid to witness I don't think it will.

/ Endrant.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 18:30:37
I have to admit that I've got concerns about signing Stokesy, he gives me the impression that he is a bit of a jack the lad, and that he doesn't take his/ the game as serious as he should, unless he's playing gers! You won't see him chasing down defenders or back tracking looking for the ball. He murdered us in the cup final under Fenlon when he played the left channel for Celtic. he's not a no 9. His last spell was gash bar the cup final for which I will be eternally grateful. If anyone thinks we are signing a model pro then imo they are wrong. I hope Lennon can keep him in check and he does the business.

Welcome big Deivy.

Stokes is a horrendous signing.
If he doesn't put the effort in I hope he doesn't keep Murray and Shaw out of the team.
I'm prepared to apologise if he somehow completely transformed since his last stint but I don't think he will have.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 22:58:55
mm that signing don't inspire me, looks like a championship level at best, holds ball up well and brings others into game, pity holt didny have a few more years in him, looks more like a keith houchen type still waiting on a proven cf 15-20 not holding breath tho.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 13:09:44
If current form is anything to go by we'll get 10 or more out of Murray.
We brought Swanny in and if he brought last season's form that could be another 10.

I'd be happy with a number 9 that'll score us another 10-15 but mixes it effectively with defenders - it'd keep them occupied and free up goals for the others too.

Watched a bit of Deivy on YouTube - the lad Fulop he played with at Botosani looked really useful from midfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 13:59:15
Could we afford Ciftci and stokes or do you think it's a one or the other.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

19 Jul 2017 15:29:49
With the emergence of Porteous, Murray, Martin and Shaw so far proving to be more than adequate I don't think we need to strengthen anywhere else so surely we could stretch to two quality frontmen.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 17:36:35
we can afford both.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 23:04:43
If Stokes has taken the reportedly low wage to come then I don't see why we can't pay a percentage of Ciftci's and take him on loan too.

We need a wide player unless Lennon's now planning to work on Crane's attacking qualities and play Whittaker further forward.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 12:59:43
Bournemouth striker Joe Quigley linked with a loan move to The Hibees. 6ft 3inch 20 year old striker. doesn't exactly boast the best goalscoring stats but could be a possibly replacement for Graham.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

Linked with Windass from Rangers.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

19 Jul 2017 11:15:58
Windlass has 3 years remaining on his contract? Earns far more a week where he is, hibs can't afford him and wouldn't buy out his contract anyway.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jul 2017 11:58:50
Not saying that I want him but he has no Future under PC and the promise of regular playtime at Easter road could lure him to Edinburgh.

Rumours please, not lies!

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jul 2017 18:55:15
According to TTSportsHQ, Hibs have taken 6 BrayWanderers players on trial following their administration. Don't know about this as the league they were in was very poor quality but in Lennon we trust.

Believable2 Unbelievable5

19 Jul 2017 12:51:44
If it's true then hopefully Tim Clancy isn't one of them.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 17:24:21
Anyone after McGinn, any less than 3million they can piss off! he's a Scotland capped player Cummings hasn't been called up and won't be unless he scores shitloads in England, so Super John is worth more.

Warbs will offer 900 grand plus magic beans from his hat.

In other news a pig flew over Easter Road when we signed a striker ;)

Believable1 Unbelievable0

18 Jul 2017 17:18:52
I hear Neil Lennon is far from happy he's identified two players lately, Berry / Church and the board have not supported him enough to get these players over the line, why appointment an ambitious manager and then not trust him?

Believable3 Unbelievable1

18 Jul 2017 17:58:10
You're actually wrong here. Berry didn’t meet Lebanon's high standards. And according to the EEN Church turned down Hibs deal. Obviously thinks he can earn more elsewhere. Fair enough really. No point this club busting a wage structure for a couple of fairly average players plenty others out there.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 18:56:40
Church hasn't been offered terms yet, supposedly he's still training for fitness before they decide on him.

The Berry one was a bit painful but without knowing his demands we don't know how realistic an option he was.
He could easily have been asking for 8k or more depending on other offers down south and we'd never have paid that.

If Petrie brings Stokes back to placate the fans I can see Lennon walking away within a year.
If he truly wanted him the deal would've been done by now.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 19:51:13
Think the church option is gone now for definite. It's a shame I think he would have suited us. If we get stokes I'm not going to lie I'll b disappointed, fair enough he had 2 good games but he made no other impact and that was in the championship. I'd be happier with cifti if I'm honest but even still we could do better surely?!

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 20:00:32
Church actually said " the offer is not quite right " whatever that may mean.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 20:35:01
Thanks for the facilities, now I'm fitter I'm off to try for more cash?

Who knows, maybe he doesn't want to move up here.

If another SPL club signs him now there is definitely something wrong behind the scenes.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 23:31:02
LD has said that there is 2 possibly 3 players coming in soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 23:49:49
Oh the pr soundbite?

Yeah I saw that. It's good to finally see her make an appearance, I assume she's been busy trying to squeeze coppers out of Rod's sphincter for the past few weeks.

Didn't really say much, same as Lennon did last week and wasn't definite on the signings still just hopefull.

We'll make signings before the window definitely, it's the calibre of them that's the important part.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 17:12:36
apparently Simon church has turned down an offer to join hibs saying that the contract offer is not good enough.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

18 Jul 2017 18:43:37
what makes you think church is worth more than we have offered. he hasn't always wanted to play for Hibs, he is only here because he couldn't get an offer down south. that should tell you how good he is.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 18:59:07
You would think that the player if not his agent would be aware or made aware of the wage ceiling that is on offer at a club like Hibs before he came. The yams top wage was around £2.5K pw, they stretched to £3K for Laughertty.

I'm quite sure we would compete with that if we had to. I'm quite sure Stokes will have been offered that if not much more. Aberdeen are throwing it around just now because they have a new investor, outside the old firm no one else will match these wages. Why would Lennon invite a player to train with a view to signing him if he knew we couldn't pay what he wants?

Why would the agent not tell his player the max wage at Hibs and not waste everyones time. Don't get me wrong, no one is more peed off than me that our wage ceiling doesn't appear to allow us to compete, but Hibs have a wage structure and with RP still there they won't break it.

IMO for our 1st season back we should allow for a bit of debt which could be wiped out next year when we won't have to bring in a load of new players. Their is good money available in football, unfortunately it is all down south, thanks to SKY!

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 19:03:09
I never said he was worth more than what was offered, he's here because he was in the Dutch league but got get let go due to injury, he has said he may consider moves abroad.

Agree0 Disagree0

He obviously thinks he is worth more than we are offering!

Ryan Porteus apparently going to Dumbarton on loan once Paul Hanlon is fit again.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

18 Jul 2017 15:41:08
That was agreed between the clubs at the start of June only problem maybe that Porteus has now shown himself to be closer to first team action than previously expected. It wouldn't surprise me if Lennon keeps hold of young Ryan until January before he loans him out now, the boy looks a fantastic young prospect.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 16:57:30
Wait to see if Hanlon can get fit and stay fit without problems then decide.
The lad certainly hasn't done himself any harm and interviews like a seasoned pro - if he keeps his head down I sniff an armband in his future.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jul 2017 23:17:14
Notts Forrest in the money, just sold a striker for over £15 Mill.
Would not be surprised if The Hat came back for McGinn!

Believable0 Unbelievable2

17 Jul 2017 23:40:11
He'll need to replace that striker and that'll cost him money.

Did we even get the money for Cummings up front? It wouldn't surprise me if he pulled the same stunt he tried with Scott Allan and offered installments.

Doubt he'd offer much more than he did for JC either and that's not enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 09:15:46
RP wouldn't give him credit when he knows they just pocketed £15Mill. I'm a wee bit irked about the size off the fee being mentioned for McGinn, he is a capped player after all. I would have thought £2-£2.5 Mill. I would like to see him sign a new deal, increase the wage extend it for a yr and a promise that he can go next yr. No cap set like JC.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 10:59:53
We got over 4 mil for Scott Brown and that was a good few years back. McGinn shouldn't be allowed to leave for anything short of 3 mill in the transfer window. I would take the 3 mill though, we could definitely replace him and more with that kind of cash.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 12:04:00
£4.4 to b exact the JC deal didn't help, I think clubs think we're giving players away for nowt up here, unless they play for Celtic that is. That baw faced muppet McCarthy at Ipswich thought he could steal McGinn for £1Mill. They're selling players down there for £15 Mill that I've never even heard off! Arsenal have asked Stoke for £10 Mill for Gibb, he's crap, he's no any better than Gray imo. Btw, he looks a wee bit like him. If JC had been scoring 20 goals a season in league one in England some club would have paid 5-6 Mill for him. Celtic just paid £4 Mill for a Chelsea reserve who by all accounts wasn't that good on Sat. They paid £2.7 Mill for a guy from the Russian club and he hasn't kicked a ball in earnest, If it's true they offered us £1Mill for McGinn a scottish international, then they want to try being less insulting! Man U just paid £90 Mill for Lukaku, according to Celtic you could buy 90 McGinns for that money. Sanchez reportedly asking Arsenal for £400K a week, they should throw in a case of Brasso for his neck. The game has gone off it's friggin head. I live for the day that Sky deal collapses and I can sit back and watch all these jumped up Prem clubs going in to administration! It's an ill divided world, rant over.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 13:37:30
I agree that the financial divide is ridiculous.

Also that McGinn is worth more.

The problem with comparing our players to Brown's transfer is that they haven't proven themselves at SPL level (besides Efe) and back then we were a top 3 or 4 side playing good football, beating English Premiership sides in pre-season and beating the old firm in the league.

That Gibbs is a left back.
The sooner Sky implodes on itself the better.

I'd be asking for at least 3 million up front for McGinn - he's already at a good level as a player and there's still bags of potential left in him. Like Brown he could easily go on to be a captain later in his career and be a central player for Scotland.
Anything less is a bit of an insult to the player and the the club.
Given that we've made a healthy amount of money and not spent any we can afford to keep him at least a year longer and offer him that extension with the promise he can go next year.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2017 20:11:45
What would thoughts be on Kris Doolan.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

18 Jul 2017 09:06:44
Probably not. but seems Lee Erwin's agent is punting him around (if he gets his pay-off from Leeds)

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2017 10:29:39
Might not b many takers, since 2012, around 6 seasons, played 93 scored 21. Then again a lot of strikers find it easier to score goals in Scotland, Stokes is a good example!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2017 19:54:34
Would take that Josh Mageniss that was at Killie and Aberdeen would definitely do a job. Rumour has is the Maroon side are in talks with Will Grigg.
