"We can't fault the way they've gone about it. Obviously Jamie was not on a contract so they had no obligation to us, but they've been very understanding and professional, and they've made a small payment to us as a token of goodwill, which is very much appreciated.

That's Insall signed up. Good goal scoring record.
Kind of confused by the signings though. Stubbs taking inspiration from the past and going for 5 up front? Keatings, Cummings, Malonga, Farid, Insall, Feruz and Anier to pick from. Who is going to start??
Pleased with a bit of ambition though. Good to see Hibs making signings to challenge for the title.
02 Sep 2015 12:13:02
I thought Insall would be an 18 month contract, seeing as he is a risk.
As for our forwards, El Alagui basically isn't a Hibs player. Injured 85% of the time.
It seems as if we are going for quantity in midfield and up front, when maybe quality would be preferable.
Excited to see if Feruz and Insall are good though!
02 Sep 2015 19:08:49
I don't know what to make of the term of Insall's contract other than they had a good look at him and must have decided they seen enough to make them believe he was worth it. The area that probably suffers most with injuries is midfield, we have six to choose from and everyone of them can play a bit, I think we have really good quality in that particular area! One things for sure, Feruz will put bums on seats next home game, if only to see what we've got!
02 Sep 2015 19:47:39
Unaware, I'm hoping your at the wind up with that crack about Alagui, if not, you need your head seen to lad!
03 Sep 2015 00:26:57
Need my head seen to? Is El Alagui fit? How often does he play?
It's just a luxury if he's fit, and even then, he doesn't look 100% fit.
Debate that Wee L.
03 Sep 2015 08:02:04
No debate required, he is a Hibs player and that's that!! Remember, he was badly injured while playing for our club, that's why he missed most of last season and it is disgusting to disregard him in that manner.
03 Sep 2015 13:52:02
"Disgusting" haha one of these sheep overusing that word in the wrong way.
He's basically a Ledley King or Dean Ashton. I like him but he is going to be injured for more games than he plays until his contract is up.
03 Sep 2015 19:05:10
I've said all I have to say on the matter, it's disgusting to disregard a Hibs player like that!
01 Sep 2015 22:52:06
Sky sport justsaid that Hibs were trying to bring one more in, I think it is a Dun utd player.
02 Sep 2015 22:49:18
is that Dunfermline united free church sunday league team great signing , defo going up now , unless a team actually attacks us or gets a free kick near our box or crosses at our Dracula defence and holie goalie that is
01 Sep 2015 21:14:16
I heard earlier today that Malonga was away to partick, if he's away, does anyone know where he's gone?
01 Sep 2015 21:01:23
Faissal El Bakhtaoui PLEASE before window shuts.rumour has it one more possibly to arrive. Stanton as a probable make-way in deal!!!
01 Sep 2015 19:19:35
anier signed a year deal
01 Sep 2015 20:00:27
10 goals in the last 51 games, 9 with motherwell in two spells 1 wi Dun utd, makes poor reading!
01 Sep 2015 20:23:53
Anier is very very poor. Not a good signing what so ever.
Feruz hopefully will turn out a gem if he knuckles down and works hard.
01 Sep 2015 16:54:20
My mate was a guest of LD on Sat and was told by her we were signing a big c/f before deadline day. Wouldn't name names but confirmed he was a foreign player. [Sorry, not much of a rumour but thought I'd share what little I heard].
01 Sep 2015 19:06:14
Stubbs has to do something, that's us down to two strikers, plus Feruz who's rep leaves a bit to be desired! I don't expect to see much of Alagui this season. I hope the c/f he's talking about is Higden or Stokes.
01 Sep 2015 19:16:25
Negative Big L.
01 Sep 2015 19:19:44
It looks like he's getting players off the wage bill, hopefully to afford a goal scorer!
01 Sep 2015 20:06:07
Their will be more if what I'm hearing is true! (Unaware)
01 Sep 2015 23:11:27
You should change your name to MrUnaware on this.
Although, you've been talking sense today - are you feeling ok?
01 Sep 2015 15:42:18
01 Sep 2015 16:07:01
thank the lord
01 Sep 2015 16:24:13
Where did you hear that?
He would be sensational for any Walking Football Team!
01 Sep 2015 16:27:52
Malonga to partick and stanton, may to preston.
01 Sep 2015 21:20:27
lol great comment. The guys a walker alright. Never seen a lazier player . Talent is there but he just looks like he can't be bothered and thinks we should all be bowing before him.
01 Sep 2015 12:35:13
The lad from Chelsea has signed
01 Sep 2015 15:40:18
SUPERB SIGNING - WHO'D HAVE THOUGHT IT. THIS GUY IS A MASSIVE TALENT!!!!
01 Sep 2015 19:18:05
This will test whether Stubbs is a good man manager if he can get the best out of him! Hope so
01 Sep 2015 12:32:58
Islam Feruz joined for season, officially.
01 Sep 2015 13:28:53
Great potential, Stubbs must think he can do a Scott Allan with him!
01 Sep 2015 11:09:09
Benji seen outside Easter road this morning
01 Sep 2015 13:53:11
Aye Benji the dug doing a piss!!
01 Sep 2015 07:16:27
Islam Ferns loan deal from Chelsea? At first this idea excited me but after only ten mins searching him online I'm begining to wonder if Stubbs knows what he's getting himself into, the boy has serious problems and seems more of a disruption than anything else! The last 3 loan deals have ended with him being sent packing. thoughts?
31 Aug 2015 20:18:43
May on his way to hibs
31 Aug 2015 21:20:56
No he's not. Guff info! The only deals possible of happening is the lad from dunfermline I'd the board invest or they offer isnall a contract. would also be very surprised if they even thought about bringing that pensioner in from ibrox!
01 Sep 2015 07:42:40
May might be the makeweight if Wednesday can get Rhodes from Blackburn - even if not, he seems to have a lot of options down south
30 Aug 2015 22:33:10
Just wanted your thoughts on Rory McAllister the striker for Peterhead? We haven't been rumoured or linked with him but would any of you take a gamble on him if he wanted to step up? Just a thought
31 Aug 2015 08:55:13
McAllister decent player but has a high paid job and therefore quite happy to play for Peterhead.
31 Aug 2015 14:22:23
I wanted him years ago but sadly he wants to stay part-time :/ i don't see why he can't just be a plumber when he's 35/40!
31 Aug 2015 16:29:13
Have you seen the money plumbers charge!
In fact, he is a salesman for an Aberdeen Company, Aberdeen being his home town.
31 Aug 2015 17:07:47
Link please? When I've seen him mentioned it says he's a plumber hmm.
Even still, £1k a week at Hibs! He should appreciate his gift and play football. Wasted otherwise.
31 Aug 2015 21:29:25
Sorry, was just a thought I had. If he was willing to give up his job then I could see him playing at a higher level but suppose he's making enough already! Good to see others thoughts
30 Aug 2015 22:13:45
I heard that Hibs wanted to buy the dunfermline goal machine El Bactouie? any one know if this is true?
30 Aug 2015 17:00:22
Any truth that Kenny Miller will be back at hibs before Tuesday
30 Aug 2015 21:13:07
Surely not, if it's true I hope he brings his own wheel barrow, he'll need it to carry his arse around!
30 Aug 2015 21:39:05
funny i heard he was on his way before season started ,, my friend told me he heard him on a program stating he loved hibs and hoped they would win title ,, looked on line for it but never could but makes sense, if THE rangers are going to get rid , they will wait till last min before letting him go , more so if they new he would go to easter roads,, i think he would be a great player for the team , well good,,,, he can put the ball in the net and he will give 100% what ever team he plays for ,
30 Aug 2015 21:45:09
Seriously hope not. Big step back if so.
30 Aug 2015 12:07:12
George elokobi set to sign for hibs on a 2 year deal
30 Aug 2015 15:28:51
Just played in his debut for Colchester yesterday and scored don't come on to this thread and talk through your #%€$$ !!!!!!
29 Aug 2015 21:51:49
When I look at the young talent Stubbs has brought to our club and the improvement these same players are making with his coaching, I have to believe that we are going in the right direction. If he can find an out and out goal scorer, I believe he will have put together the best squad I have seen at ER in the past 20yrs!! The guy doesn't only find players, he is tactically aware, It really pisses me off when I here idiots asking if he should be sacked. I think he will prove to be the best manager we have had in a very long time!
30 Aug 2015 11:20:21
Best team in 20 years we are far from it we can hardly beat teams in the this division, are you trying to say this team is better than mowbray's or the team that got us back up to the top fligh but do think Stubbs is doing a job there but he is still a young manager and is only his first senior team of managing and when he was Evertons youth coach most years he finished mid table, he has made good singing and he has also made bad ones. Hopefully we can get another striker and score man than 2 goals in a game
30 Aug 2015 11:24:56
Couldn't agree with you more big L
30 Aug 2015 12:36:04
Come on Big L. Stubbsie has a way to go as a manager. Rangers came to ER with a game plan last season that he and his team had no idea how to combat. The sad thing is our club is not interested in building for the future. Bring them in and sell them on and that goes for our manager too. He's so committed to Hibs he shares a flat while he "works away from home". I did too when I worked abroad. No wonder so many of our fans are still so indifferent to what's going on at ER. 8500 is a return to the crowds of the late 70's and 80's. Meanwhile teams like St Johnstone are years ahead of us with a fraction of our resources. And a Scottish cup!! Great potential or not our new team and manager will be gone in two years time. That's a nap!
30 Aug 2015 13:46:33
Hibby007. When I looked at the bench yesterday and seem McGregor and Foster I thought good defensive cover, the mid field is prbably the best part of the team with loads of talent, very imoressed with McGinn. Their are goals in the attack but it would be great to get a really good striker, I also would like a better keeper, I didn't say the best team in 20yrs I said the best squad!
30 Aug 2015 14:40:50
Highlight yesterday was getting my new shirt gos so well with my purple skin.
The best squad ever! Because we`re great and the rest are just pants!
But what do I know, I`m just a Unicorn.
30 Aug 2015 18:05:54
I started reading this thinking who's this delusional guy and surprise, surprise it's Wee L!
We have achieved nothing so far, and ince again, have gotten off to a bad start.
As for being tactically aware, you're having a laugh! He does not know at all how to adapt tactics againsy teams who are stopping us from scoring. He is one track minded in terms of tactics. Mowbray was similar but at least he actually got us up where we should be! Mowbray was a complete class above Stubbs.
As for best in 20 years, Alex Miller was in charge 20 years ago, a manager who fans hated for his terrible football. You really have no clue about the game.
30 Aug 2015 18:34:47
Their you go getting personal again Mr unaware! Negative sniping as per!!
30 Aug 2015 20:29:41
Unaware, when I was reading thru your reply I thought for sec we'd signed Ince, then I thought wi our luck it would be Paul!!
31 Aug 2015 11:59:56
Maybe best squad in the past 5 years but we are still in this league, that face the facts here lads, we are a bad team right now we have a long way to go and I will be surprise if we can get second, I hope I am wrong and we can get second maybe first but we are off to a bad start again and are struggling for goals need a new striker that has proven him self and not taking a gamble on someone, would like a new keeper but Stubbs likes oxley is the man for the job, I like Stubbs and think he is the right man for the job but he struggles with tactics when it's not going his way. Does not know what to do when a team sits back and defends was the problam last season and it looks like it is going to be the same this year
31 Aug 2015 19:38:41
Big L getting proven wrong then having no comeback except the predictable "negative".
28 Aug 2015 17:45:55
Forget about billy McKay. He's gone on a season long loan to Dundee United. Rumour has it that we've signed James Insall for the development squad. I wonder who this elusive striker were signing for the first team is?
28 Aug 2015 19:16:05
Anthony Stokes ? Stubbs has been trying for him, presume it will be a loan deal if it does come off.
28 Aug 2015 20:32:58
Heard on radio that Stevie May will be coming to us. Not sure I believe it myself but wondered if anyone else knew anything on this?
28 Aug 2015 21:26:32
I have to say that I would be happy with that, his goals per games for us were better than Riordan and Griffiths, I think! I think it's also fair to say that he hasn't played thru the middle with celtic and still managed 58 in 135 games. He's out of favour but will he take the drop!
28 Aug 2015 22:27:29
Stokes or May
I'd be delighted with either
29 Aug 2015 12:36:58
Quite a few articles link us with May but I'd be shocked if it happened.
He'd be an amazing signing for us but really, it would be wrong for his career to come on loan to Hibs. He will do good in England if given another chance!
31 Aug 2015 12:44:42
Hate to say this, but it is looking like May is going to hearts on season-long loan deal. We were offered him on loan for a payment of £200,000.
27 Aug 2015 18:02:59
website said Jamie Insall is about to complete Hibs move.
27 Aug 2015 19:08:10
I can believe you as it won`t cost Petrie a penny. A non- league player, brilliant. Just shows you the rumours of McKay and May are just that, rumours.
What happen to the Scott Allan money?
After all Summer saying we won`t sell him and then sell him to Celtic, who only bought him to spite Rangers. Surely Petrie can spend 50k on the lad that`s banging the goals in for Dunfermline. There`s got to be some sort of signing and not a the cast offs and journey men that we sign on frees.
Surely Stubbs has to go in and buy a top striker and when I say top I mean the £200,000 that Dundee United have spent on Mckay. If he doesn`t he`ll be out of a job.
27 Aug 2015 21:28:12
I'm quite happy with the signings so far, McGinn, Fyvie, Bartley, Mcgeough, McGregor, Fontaine, Oxley, Boyle, Keatings and Gray, and I've no doubt we will get our 11th one soon, a striker!!
28 Aug 2015 07:27:15
Trust Big L to count Gray as a signing.
28 Aug 2015 08:07:36
Petrie loves you Big L
28 Aug 2015 08:08:00
I don't know if your AWARE or not but we also signed Henderson from The tic on loan! We are actually going for our 12th signing before the window closes, a striker, in Stubbs and Dempster we trust!!
28 Aug 2015 10:04:10
What have we got to trust Stubbs and Leann for? He`s making a hash of it and shes just a Petrie stooge.
It really gets me time and time again this in Stubbs we trust pish. Listen we`re not Arsenal, we`re never going to be so leave the in trust think to them.
You`re easily pleased mate. Life being you must be great.
The reason Hibs have never done anything, ever is because Petrie knows we have fans like you. Demand better and you never know you might get it.
Change the subject slightly as much as I would like to see someone like Stevie May at Hibs if he did come it would be a loan signing. Hibs will tell you it is sending a message. Bollocks it is if it`s a loan. Look at Leigh Griffiths had him on loan could have bought him chose to try and get him on the cheap and look what happens.
28 Aug 2015 10:05:26
You`d be happy if we brought back Keith Wright
28 Aug 2015 10:56:55
re you sure you got ££££ for SA - - MGock straight swap in my opinion, with a first refusal on buy back if he looks any good & Henderson on loan with 'tic paying his wages.
You sure you actually got ££££ ????
28 Aug 2015 12:20:40
Petrie&unaware, the 2 negs, up like a couple of salmon, couldnae bite quick enough. Chirpping away like a couple of demented budgies! Ha Ha Ha!! Do you 2 share the same psychiatrist? Are you getting treatment for constant negative attitudes? If not you should be! In Stubbs and Dempster we trust.GGTTH!!
28 Aug 2015 13:01:16
Ye know, if we signed Messi you 2 would tell us he's past his best!
28 Aug 2015 13:03:24
Demented budgie, very good. Did you come up with that all by yourself. Well done! That`s you told me. Well if you say everything is rosey then who I`m I to disagree with a mind that came up with a put down of demented budgie.
My mental health is no concern of yours but my pet unicorn (Dave)who I commuinicate through dance as he`s from Moldova and his English isn`t quite there yet says that your budgie line was PISH!
28 Aug 2015 14:01:53
Signing Messi would mean spending money. Also he`s still playing so not past it.
Keith wright wouldn`t cost a penny and he`s old. The reason I used Keith as an example.
I know you tried but you need to try harder with an example.
Please try again. I `ll start you off. `You`ll be saying that. (add the player of your choice who`s past it) wouldn`t get a game.
Can you do it? Dave is dancing, so he`s says No, over to you.
28 Aug 2015 14:57:04
Big L - Petrie1875 (most of the time) and i just tell the facts, and we don't just come out with unintelligent comments like you.
How you can count contract extensions as new signings is beyond me. Lewis Stevenson joined Hibs 5 times did he?
28 Aug 2015 15:03:40
Petrie, that was brilliant, for a minute a thought you had anger issues as well. By the way, I hope your taking Dave to the games cause we certainly need the support!
28 Aug 2015 15:32:26
Unaware, Is that the best you can do? At least Petrie has a sense of humour! GGTTH
28 Aug 2015 15:56:57
I would but he gets the horn.
28 Aug 2015 18:46:15
i don' come on here for the rumours, i come on to see grown men slag each other about who is the better hibs fan like school kids hahaha
29 Aug 2015 12:40:41
Big L - you were being serious though, you genuinely think that's how many "signings" we've made.
Anyway, on Stubbs, Hibs gave excuse Stubbs came on late and that's why we got off to a bad start. What's the excuse this year?
Highly lacking in goals and why is this? Oh yeah, no Scott Allan. As he has left in an amazingly bad deal that only benefits the team Stubbs wants to manage.
29 Aug 2015 22:39:26
Hiby007 - i am here to talk about football but Big L continues to be eveasive and not understand or acknowledge the facts.
30 Aug 2015 11:14:11
Haha really because the past few comments the both of you have made have been nothing about hibs or facts just talking crap about each other but to say maybe best team in 20 years i don't think so, I think we are all long away off being better than mowbray's team and even the team that got us back up to the top flight. Defo need another striker though.
30 Aug 2015 18:08:02
I do talk about football but he keeps coming out with "Mr Aware being negative again" like a moron that he is. Wish i could block all the happy clappers on here, so that only clever fans comments show up!
27 Aug 2015 17:40:38
Hibs supposedly in for Billy McKay and Stevie May but have competition from Dundee Utd and Rangers respectively
27 Aug 2015 12:16:07
Stubbs wants to sign Anthony Stokes.
27 Aug 2015 14:38:27
Rather take the fella from Dunfermline
25 Aug 2015 22:49:05
El Bakhtaoui f next player to arrive at Easter road WHAT A SIGNING !!!!
26 Aug 2015 10:22:22
Would like to believe you as the guy is in great form and surely can play at a higher level than what he is a the moment.
If he does sign for us it will be on a pre contract in January.
26 Aug 2015 13:47:14
He stayed in a guest house I am working at with his agent on the outskirts of Edinburgh Monday night , left Tuesday morning his agent said to hold talks with a club but would not say what club
26 Aug 2015 15:36:20
OK. Not that I would doubt you, it is a rumours page after all.
Dunfermline will want a fee and even if it`s 50k Petrie isn`t going to pay that when they can get him for nothing on a pre contract in January.
Or he`ll sign for Hearts for sweeties and score 20 goals.
I hope the agent tipped?
26 Aug 2015 16:11:56
I hope he does sign. We certainly need more goals in the team. I'd also like to see a left back, but hey, you can't have everything. Current first team squad is 22 players. Surely room for one or two more, if we really want to stay a "big club" - we can't afford not to go up this season.
26 Aug 2015 16:52:45
Not till January please got grand Dunfermline to win league☺
25 Aug 2015 14:44:41
Darren macgregor has signed a 2 year deal. Excellent move. Best signing of the year so far
25 Aug 2015 17:43:10
A really good addition! I think the boy Theo Robinson could be a good signing to, ex Derby striker traing with us at the moment.
25 Aug 2015 18:25:08
Great signing IMO!!!! Hopefully we can now go back to the 3-5-2 formation with MacGregor, Fontaine and Hanlon at the back. Push Gray up into right midfield where he is a massive threat still leaving Forster to return from injury to add competition for places. Another quality striker now Stubbsy and our squad is complete and more than capable of challenging.
26 Aug 2015 09:27:14
The best thing about the mcgregor signing is most would see it as a step down in a career. He sees it as the next exciting challenge. And because he's a hibee seems genuinely happy about the move. He's certainly not come for the money as he'll have taken a big pay drop
27 Aug 2015 21:29:04
So gray in front of boyle eat rmid mmm no see the falkirk game last yr gray injury prone that's why he's here
24 Aug 2015 15:53:29
Darren McGregor on his way to hibs
24 Aug 2015 18:32:36
He was a fair player wi St Mirren and of course he's a Hibby!!
24 Aug 2015 18:48:33
Hearing it is St Johnstone he is going to.
24 Aug 2015 23:33:40
Darren mcgregor is a big honest guy, he had a good season with us last season but is prone to errors. Glad he is no where near our team this year as he isn't good enough but I wish him all the best where every he goes. even if it is to our "title rivals"
25 Aug 2015 00:25:04
We are in need of a defender or two desperately.
I'd take him. Fontaine and Hanlon make errors frequently, so having 3 CBs means one could sweep.
25 Aug 2015 12:06:58
Theo Robinson Jamaican international training with us, played for Derby 1 in 3 ratio would surely score goals inthis league especially with the amount of chances we make!
25 Aug 2015 20:43:39
No good enough for rangers pmsl
27 Aug 2015 08:03:21
Adder, he was slightly better than Mcculloch and mohsni last season and has been deemed not good enough by our manager who has signed 4 defenders this summer. Don't get me wrong I liked the guy, I actually met him after we played Peterhead a couple weeks back and he seems a nice guy. The problem is had he stayed at rangers he wouldn't have played unless we had a couple of injuries. I wish him all the best (apart from when he plays us) and hope he helps hibs back onto the spl (through the playoffs hopefully) as scotland needs it's big clubs in the top tier and I see hibs as a big club in oor wee country.
27 Aug 2015 22:03:50
Common sense fi a bear youll be filling in tax rtns next lol.
