I've got it on good authority allan will sign for sevco,,, all this chat stubbs signed new contract on the condition he isn't sold is BS,,, the boy has submitted transfer request once they agree a fee he s is gone,,, we are looking at 500k, with someone coming in the other direction,, although i cannot see that after everything that's happened, but depends who it is. maybe that's why its taking soooo long,,, GTF Allan.

First off I don't think so and secondly no need for the abuse at the end.
The lads a footballer, we weren't moaning when Griffiths wanted to come to us from Celtic because he is a Hibs fan.
I would like to see him stay and see out the season and then see what's open to him, probably better than Sevco that's for sure.

Agree3 Disagree3

30 Jul 2015 21:08:12
bordrshibee first off just passing on what i heard secondly don't b so sensitive wasn't intended as abuse , i think allan is an exciting player to watch and i'd rather he stayed,but like you say about griffiths, well he's a sevco fan,and if it wasn't them i don't think a request for transfer would have been submitted ,,,do you

Agree2 Disagree2

30 Jul 2015 21:15:50
As long as he doesn't go to der sevco I couldn't give a toss

31 Jul 2015 13:05:49
Well Dunedinfew, I am a sensitive soul. Just think there's a bit of heat on this that's not necessary. I agree I want him to stay, but equally if the right money came in from anywhere else I would say take it and we move on with McGinn and maybe another quality signing or two. Stokes is finished at Celtic. fancy him back anyone?

It's about time we signed more GOOD players.

People were delusionally saying our squad is looking best it has in ages but if you seriously analyse it, it's very weak. Especially if the player that is miles in front of every other player in our team leaves.

We need a goalie, CB, two- footed fullback, attacking midfielder and fast forward.

Dislike this comment if you want but it's the truth.

Believable3 Unbelievable4

30 Jul 2015 15:24:06
Mr aware your comments are very negative hibs last season played the best football I have seen in the last 5-6 seasons and the signings as has bought in have been decent quality instead of slating get behind the team and the manager I do agree we need a goalie but I would try the other keeper we have and see how that goes and I hope you've got your season ticket mate

Agree4 Disagree3

30 Jul 2015 16:34:31
i think we need to sign a few new players too,,,last season wasn't bad considering it was a new team,,,stubbs pulled in some good players but I was kinda hopin he would have gotten a few in again,,,mcgeoch is a loss and we've known since the end of last season that its only a matter of time b4 allan goes,,and now he's stuck in a transfer request,theres no way he can stay now,,no way. i'd just like to read the news about players signing and positive talk .

Agree3 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 18:36:35
Allan Stubbs only signed a new contract if Scott Allan was not sold to rangers so I don't think he's going any where till end of next season personally I would do a deal with septic £250k and mcgeough but you may find mcgeough will be back at Easter road before the window closes

Agree4 Disagree2

30 Jul 2015 18:51:28
Can`t seeing us signing anyone like that.

I kinda agree tho. Defo need another centre half another full back yes, attacking midfielder not so sure? We could do with more defensive cover in the midfield IMO. A fast forward yes, as Malonga isn`t fast is he and I can`t see him being at Hibs at the end of the season, hopefully Keatings is the man. Keeper, will he`s signed 2 and we`re just going to hope that Oxley can get better or the other fella is better.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 18:55:57
hopefully mcgeoch will come back,,,allan wouldn't sign for celtic they aren't interested,,,when sevco come in with the right offer he's gone,,,the guys handed in a transfer request to move to sevco ,not because he wants to leave hibs,,,do ye really think he's staying after requesting to leave,,,come on,,,I've heard we are negotiating for bigger amount ,but he's gone. he's either going to sign for sevco or he's going to get it tight all season and then sign for free in january.

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 19:00:32
stubbs didn't just sign if allan isn't sold to sevco,,,,thats ridiculous,,,and we can't make him sign for a team he doesn't want to, nor can we really stand in the boys way either to be fair,,,,,GTF allan let's move on get a good fee and we can get good couple of players while we can

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 19:11:38
I don't think SA would sign for Celtic and he definitely won't sign for Dun Utd particularly when he knows sevco want him. I think he will just sit it out but that could be disruptive. I've said since I first clapped eyes on Oxley that we needed a keeper, as to the rest of it, I put my faith in AS!!

30 Jul 2015 21:21:04
Gardner - I am being realistic and if that sounds negative then that just means we aren't in a good situation.

You've already said it's the best football you've seen at us in 5 or 6 years and again i will say we haven't been exciting since Mowbray left which was 8 years ago. Also, this is the CHAMPIONSHIP. If Hibs aren't more attacking in Championship then would be something seriously wrong.

It still stand that there is NO reason for Hearts to be so far in front last season if Stubbs is so "great".
Out of Hearts most played players last season, 6 were NEW signings, along with 4 youth and Wilson.
Our main 11 last season consisted ALSO of 6 new players but the other 5 were 4 experienced and one youth.
try debating that one!

Stubbs didn't even reach 2 pts per game which should've been our absolute minimum in that league!

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Jul 2015 22:02:35
MrAware - Hibs were never going to win the league last season. Hearts did have the better squad and proved it. Robbie at he filth isn't any better than Stubbs. They were the form team before they went down and the bookies don't get it wrong much. Were Hibs favs for the league - no.

Hibs were in a mess before Stubbs came along. It takes time to sort a mess. Ever tried it? Doubt it.

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Jul 2015 16:12:51
Piq your correct mate Stubbs is a good manager and he will get better his when they went down LD stated this was a 2year plan Robbie and Levine are no better than Stubbs in fact I would say there worse they had a not bad team but what they did have was the guts to stand up and be counted where hibs played for half a game Stubbs has tought them to fight for 90 mins he's bought in some great signings and after a long time I'm looking forward to watching my team last season was the best I've seen in a long time and this season will be even better. Some so called hibs fans should hold there head in shame they never get behind the manager or the team manager after manager and the disgust of hearing fans booing the team off the pitch we need to go back to when we cheered hibs thick and thin and buy season tickets so we can keep our best players you also find its the people that don't buy there season tickets that have the cheek to criticise my statement is this we are hibs we are a family we should support hibs through everything not boo them ever get behind Stubbs buy your season ticket have your say and let's build this to get 15000 support every week so Stubbs and hibs can buy better and keep better if not sorry you shouldn't have a say.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 12:27:47
With wee McGinn coming in I think wee should let the judas go to sevco aslong as its for minimum 500k. We can do without the side show and the negative effect it has on the club. The other players won't stand for it knowing he wants to play for them plus the cash is better in our pocket than losing him for nothing in january. Good riddance

Believable4 Unbelievable5

30 Jul 2015 14:44:37
If you were at Falkirk and Hibs wanted you, are you saying you'd stay st Falkirk and risk Hibs not wanting you next year?

Agree2 Disagree2

30 Jul 2015 15:25:24
I wouldn't let scot Allan go to sevco I would tell septic £250k +. Mcgeough and he's yours

Agree3 Disagree4

30 Jul 2015 16:49:01
He won't sign for septic though, I think if it wasn't for sevco's interest he would have been more than happy to stay at ER. Just don't see how it can happen now though, he has to go

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 18:38:01
He can't decide where he goes hibs have him for another year if it was me I would say take Celtic offer or put him in the reserves for a year

Agree2 Disagree3

30 Jul 2015 19:09:51
Of course he can decide where he goes! He clearly wants to go to sevco so he will sit tight until January and we'll get nothing. So sit in the reserves is what he will be doing, benefits absolutely no one that though.

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Jul 2015 20:04:46
he has to go,,,,he cannot play for my beloved hibs anymore,,,GTF

I would make him sit there till June when his contract ends

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 21:22:43
So laughable people saying to put him in reserves.

You's will soon change your minds when we're struggling to score winners against Falkirk because of our lack of killer passes.

what does everyone think about AS signing an extension, looks like rod the plod trying to expose the media campaign or is someone sniffing for a manager?? on scott a why don't we give THE NEW rangers a price to meet and a deadline and call their bluff ?

Believable0 Unbelievable5

29 Jul 2015 21:45:34
Stubbs has done nothing so far. If we want to finish 2nd then Stubbs will do that, but if ee want to win league then we'd need another manager.
People make out he is great with no evidence of it. Just because he is better than Fenlon (although more hammerings by Rangers might change that) doesn't mean he is great. Hearts absolutely dominated last season and there was little reason as to why we couldn't do the same, considering they had half a new 1st 11 too!

As for Scott Allan, Rangers gave insulting bids, so we should put a £1m price tag on him plus a percentage from 2 future transfers. See how they like it.

Agree2 Disagree2

29 Jul 2015 21:52:22
who will be our new manager if stubbs does go after all he has just signed an extension and could hibs afford it.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Jul 2015 22:50:29
McAware - Stubbs has done nothing! Good style of football, young team, sorted huge issues in the background, good team around him, great knowledge of the game and good contacts.

Hearts were the form team before they went down and had a good squad who were used to each other. Stubbs had to pull a squad together.

Get real and get behind the man. Think before you talk. The guy will make mistakes but he is the best manager we have had for while.

Agree3 Disagree1

29 Jul 2015 23:59:53
I have to disagree with that, their were fans on AS back from the start given no consideration to the mess he inherited. He had to get players in when their was very little money due to the fans being upset over relegation, he expected some of Evertons young guys, that never happened, he took us to the semi of the cup and 2nd in the league and played some of the best football I've seen at ER for a long time. I think AS has done a good job so far and I look forward to this season with a great deal of optimism!!

Agree3 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 09:58:46
I can see were Aware is coming from. If you`re playing Devils Advocate, he`s right in saying Stubbs hasn`t achieved anything as yet. Not being promoted and not reaching the cup final after out playing a poor Falkirk team are major disapointments. On the other hand he has produced better football, found players like Scott Allan and seems much more approachable than Fenlon ever was.
It would seem harsh in the slightest to sack Stubbs before the season begins because of Awares concerns, especially after he`s signed a new contract and more so not giving in to the bully boy tactics employed by Rangers and Scott Allan`s agent. Other Hibs managers in the past would have crumbled and taken the easy way out but fair play to Stubbs he`s stuck his neck out, so let's get behind him. (Petrie give him some cash)

He`s got a hell of a job, getting Allan`s head right for a start, nobody knows how that will pan out and getting promoted, even if it is through the play-offs, that`s all that counts. If promotion doesn`t come, then Mr.Aware would then be more entitled to come back on next year and say that he should be sacked.

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Jul 2015 10:04:11
Stubbs has brought in some good players. I can't remember having a decent rb since steven whittaker, now we have Gray. Fyvie and allan are good enough for most SPL sides. Fontaine is solid. Lewis stevenson and domonique malonga shave eachothers chest hair

Agree3 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 12:43:07
Mr Aware --Are you serious ? Stubbs inherited a Club that was on their knees, were going nowhere playing atrocious football, at that time you would have seen a better game between 10yr olds down Leith Links, in a very short space of time he has grabbed the CLUB by the scruff of the neck, dragged it out of the mire and has the team playing football the way it is supposed to be. True we haven't won anything [yet], but give him time, Stubbs, imo, is the best manager we have had since Mowbray, perhaps even Turnbull [time will tell on that score].

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Jul 2015 15:03:37
Piquet68,

Is it a good style of football though? Plenty of games where it just seems we will never score unless Allan pulls out a peach of a pass. What will we do when he leaves? Expect Fraser "pass the buck" Fyvie to do it?
Young team means nothing if they aren't good enough. Handling 4 year contract for what? Explain that one!
Good contacts like who? All we got was Kennedy.

Hearts changed half their team! Too many Hibs fans give excuses while Hearts just get on with it and don't give any excuses!

Think before I speak the TRUTH?

Auld Yin,

It's irrelevant where we were. Ross County sign a huge amount of players every season and never complain! I've already explained this when Fenlon was in charge! Stop coming up with excuse and just get on with it!
Turnbull? I have to ask if you're serious now? The guy who fell out with everyone, lost out on Gordon Strachan and got us relegated - aye, good one!

You all need to remember we only got 70pts last season. McLeish gave no excuses and got on with it. No excuses to not reach 80pts but loses to Alloa and continuous failure against Falkirk are just non-excusable.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 15:26:17
Again. Mr negative

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2015 15:28:52
Think I need to stick up for Eddie Turnbull after the last post, fair enough towards the end of his reign the team didn't perform very well but the team of the early seventies was by far the best team in my lifetime. The football they played was excellent, they were regularly challenging for league and cup honours and became a well known name across Europe with some fabulous displays in the UEFA cup.
Turnbull wasn't necessary responsible for bringing them all to ER but created the playing style and brought them together as a fabulous attack minded side.
When was the last time Hibs had 3 players score 99 goals between them in a season (Gordon, O'Rouke and Duncan) in all games?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2015 20:49:35
Following the on TV that Scott Allan has now officially handed in a written transfer request a hastily held board meeting was informed that if Allan were to be sold to Rangers he would seriously have to consider his own position as manager of the club. Every player has his price and for a guy who joined Hibs with a view to having another crack somewhere down south we should hold out for at least 500k with a 15% sell on clause or if Allan doesn't want to play for the club that effectively saved his footballing career from total oblivion then stick him in with the "stiffs" or in the stand to warm his arse until his contract expires then show him the door. At present we have reportedly been offered around 225k in installments which works out at around 10k per week for the remainder of his contract. That also works out at around 500 less supporters going to ER every other week and you can bet your bottom dollar there will be a lot more than that staying away. Bite the bullet Hibs and continue telling Sevco to get stuffed.

28 Jul 2015 23:13:15
The biggest problem is how much disrespect has been shown to hibs by the media and scottish football,this guy believes his own hype,fair dos players hav egos he is known for a strop or two in the past but as a long standing successful club with steeped in history and the jersey worn by true legends and footballing geniuses that this lad couldnae even comprehend now that really gets my blood boiling,rangers are a negative entity holing scottish football back hav cheated and lied for a cabinet full of brass that belongs to a club that died a while back but for the sake of a tradition no one enjoys pundits and media in our putrid lost and damaged game want them to be back where they belong! Well they will b soon enjoy!!!!!! If that's wat enjoyment passes for in these times.

Agree3 Disagree2

29 Jul 2015 12:30:36
Biggest problem in football are the agents. They are in for one thing only and that is to make their cut out of any transfer whether it be good or bad for the player.

Who knows what lies ahead for Scott Allan whether it be for Hibs or any other team. At the moment things are looking not to bad for a player who's career was almost finished until Hibs threw him a lifeline. His prospects are reasonably good for a move back down south, as he has himself says he wants, and will get if he continues to perform on a regular basis in the Hibs team. Now, should he leave Hibs for another Championship side and things don't work out will the agent refund his percentage?.

Funny how the press now seem to be interested in the benefits to Hibs by selling Scott Allan all of a sudden when all they normally do is scrape the gutter to get opinions from former so called "legends" that have played for the two main weegie sides splashed across the back pages.

Agree2 Disagree1

29 Jul 2015 18:06:51
this rubbish with SA has gone on long enough he needs to stop listening to all the rubbish that his agent is telling him .He is a Hibs player for another year he needs to settle down with the rest of the team and do the job that he is getting paid for .Why would he want to go to that bankrupt team in the west who can't even pay there bills and will be even worse of if mike Ashley demands his money back the grass is not always greener on the other side he should be gratefull to hibs and not being like a spoiled child throwing there toys out of the pram

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jul 2015 19:24:58
good news to hear that Stubbs and his backroom staff have all extended there contracts at Hibs this shows belief and ambition in the future of the club going in the right direction .I hope with the other new players he is trying to bring into the club that I hope SA rethinks his positon and stays as part of the bigger picture he should be very grate full to both the club and to the manager for where he is now .

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Jul 2015 19:32:38
Latest I've heard from Easter road is that hibs have rejected Scott Allan's transfer and have told him he will be staying for his remaining year or he can go to septic or Dundee Utd hope they stick to this

All your talk about SA wanting to move because of an agent driving it is rubbish. The boy wants to move to the club he has supported since he was very young I don't see what's wrong with that! I didn't realise hibees were so paranoid about the press and the weedgies. Very sad indeed.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Jul 2015 16:19:37
Look out for Liam Henderson coming on loan soon. Also lay off SA he will not go to currant buns and will do well for us. Chances are he will wait until next season see where we are and then probably move on. Give the guy a bit of credit it is well documented he is friends with a few of the Sevco players. Let's all move on.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

26 Jul 2015 22:37:49
The media are largely responsible for stirring things up although they always deny it. They say they are just reporting what's going on and doing their job. But they ARE actually stirring it up and whipping up the fans into the type of frenzie we saw with the Sevco fans at ER on Sat. Chanting Scott Allens name etc. The fans wouldn't have been doing that if the media hadn't been bigging up the interest from Sevco in the first place!

Agree3 Disagree2

26 Jul 2015 23:33:31
Players agents get their money by moving there clients on as fast as possible even if they have got a contract which they regard as a piece of bog roll.
If Scott Allan's agent had done his job correctly he would have inserted a clause with a trigger amount stipulated instead of a so called "verbal agreement" which is open to interpretation on both sides.
It appears that HFC are correctly holding out and the agent & his west of Scotland press cohorts are trying their hardest to manufacture a move westwards.

27 Jul 2015 10:08:27
We released the informetion on the bids to make everyone aware that your lot can't afford to buy SA and that your trying to steal him by unsettling the player. I don't care if he sits in the stand for the rest of the season, what's important is that we don't accept your bully boy tactics , that we stand firm and no matter what happens we don't sell him to you lot, who obviously don't know how to conduct yourselves in a fit and proper manner.

Agree2 Disagree1

27 Jul 2015 12:24:35
Big L - I can understand the frustration of Hibs fans. However whether the first bid was acceptable or not (never has been in my experience of buying anything), it WAS done the correct way - it WAS done via both boardrooms as I understand and therefore WAS done through the proper channels. Rangers did not release this to the press and neither did they release the follow up bid. If anybody upset the player or the Hubs team you really need to be looking closer to home.
I also look forward to the bigger team (LOL)bidding 250k for another championship player before the window closes.

It was the fact the first and second "offers" were so ridiculous that prompted Hibs , quite rightly, revealing them. It is ridiculous to think that ANY team would sell the Championship player of the year, for peanuts, even then the peanuts were to be paid on the never-never. As for the west coast biased media, - Hibs as a Club, Stubbs as a manager have both stated HE IS NOT FOR SALE on numerous occassions but this appears to be ignored and every day there is more pressure exerted by the media fairy stories. Hibs have done nothing wrong in this sorry saga. Time to move on. Allan will be a rangers player, but NOT THIS SEASON, suck it up chaps.

Now't to do wi it, if you want to buy a player of compeititor and in doing so stregthen your team and weaken theirs then you pay the asking price, we have not quoted a price because he is not for sale!! But that won't stop sevco, they have no class and no sporting integrity.

28 Jul 2015 10:58:00
funny thing about this thread is that all the hibs fans are slating rangers however we are in this league due to financial mis-management of our CLUB therefore we were DEMOTED. your lot are in this league because your football TEAM is crap and you got RELEGATED. have a quick think about how great your own club is before spouting off how rubbish other teams are.

{Ed007's Note - You werent demoted, you were reformed and allowed to join the lowest tier in the SPFL, let's keep to the facts here - there was no demotion, relegation or any other stupid excuse you've thought up in the last couple of years. If you were demoted why did it need votes to see what league you would play in, why did you need a conditional membership to play Berwick in your first official game and why didn't you take up the European place you qualified for in your final season in the SPL?}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2015 14:18:06
Git in there Ed!! By the way, if we've got a crap team what does that make your lot ? You finished behind us last year!! what's just as important is that we are a club that believes in sporting integrity and we conduct our business properly, which is more than can be said for sevco!

28 Jul 2015 14:57:03
Ed07 - I appreciate you get little perturbed by this, but Rewriting history doesn't make it correct - We were not reformed we were taken over by a different company hence why all footballing associations still acknowledge that we are still Rangers Football club & why we get to keep all honours won since 1872
It needed votes to see what league we were in because of the Financial loss which would follow (lost gate receipts.tv money etc) It wasn't RFC who argued against being put in the bottom league. I don't think we were even allowed to vote or put a case forward.
Conditional membership was due to the legal handover from one company to another. It was accepted by the 'authorities that it would happen therefore the game was sanctioned.
& we never took up the European place because the company that took over the Football team did not have the required Accounts history.
We also ever took the prize money from that season, and we never got the full share of the tv money that followed.
We also cleared every clubs debt from 3rd Div up, by filling up their grounds at least twice per season. They got more income from 1 game than a full season in some cases!!
No doubt this will illicit a rant or 2, but hey ho!
Onward & upward

not only him, what's the point having busy players , we don't pay enough to get busy physical players was men v boys end of first and then second half, hanlon cost two with a stupid foul and awol in box, stevenson ,fontaine great passes to rangers players for two goals the team is so one sided and weak, same goal lost last year with a lob into the corners we will miss craig as Stanton is ok going forward but to small to cover, ps get allan away he thinks he's to good for us, we've found our level and get used to it I can't see stubbs hanging around to take the blame for rp and tom tryin on the cheap yet again.

As a gers fan who was at the game today, i won't come on here bumming about scoreline ect, the scott allan thing will come to an end on monday i'm sure, he will be a rangers player by then, however i do think our recent offers for him is pretty much insulting for a player of his qualities, i do hope he is a gers player for our next game tho, but i do feel your loss if it does happen, anyway good luck for the forthcoming season.

Have heard from good source that Celtic are "waiting in the wings" re Scot Allan saga. They are prepared to offer cash and Mcgeoch as part of the deal.
To be honest, I would prefer that than let SA go to our main rivals for promotion.

IF he is leaving us, I think it would be madness to allow him to go to the main challengers for promotion, now I don't like celtic any better than rangers but they at least play in a different league to us [at the moment] and as an aside, I rate McGeoch and he would at least "soften" the blow of losing SA for the derisory pittance rangers have offered so far. Don't know why I have to explain this as IMO it is obvious.

Obviously most Hibs supporters would prefer him to play at ER, however, Auld Yin was just making a point (which I agree with) that IF he was to leave it would make more sense to sell him to Celtic than Rangers.

AS says he is not for sell but we have all been watching football long enough to know that things change on a fairly regular basis.

Warburtons statement in defending their approch for SA" the selfish approach in business must be adopted to be successful in football" I think this goes a long way to prove this was a deliberate attempt to undermine Hibs and SA, and the SPL governing body should take action against them.

We all need to understand the old firm have ripped this league since its existance and the latest is just another instance that reminds me why I can't stand them, if it wasn't for rod Petrie then we would be up there challenging with the rest of them. Perhaps if we had a decent team then done of them would want to leave. No player since Colin stein oh and maybe kenny Miller have left Hibs and moved to rangers have made a success of their careers so it just goes to show players couldn't give a damn about football it's all to do with money

Hibs are keen to strike a deal for midfielders Dylan McGeouch and John McGinn with the latter rumoured to be visiting the East Mains Training Complex today.

It seems clear to me that Rangers are winding us up. I don`t think they`re seriously wanting Scott Allan because if they did they would have offered a serious and fair amount and the fact that they want to make payments rather than pay the full amount of £175,000.
They just want to try and unsettle the player and Hibs before the season starts as they know it`s going to be tough for them in the league.

Having said all that if it comes to it and Hibs do sell then they will have lost the league before a ball has been even kicked. Not that I believe that Hibs are a one man band but what signal does that show the rest of the team and the league?

What Hibs should do is make an offer for their best player but I couldn`t tell you who that is. Would be funny tho.

Rangers are finished, get over it sunshine. You`re not the team or club you were. Celtic win have 20 in a row, never mind 10.

All the pressure is on your ugly mob to win the league. All the talk coming out of your place can only make Hibs stronger. Hibs have a settled squad more or less and if we can add a few more before the start of the season even better.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Jul 2015 20:35:54
Scot Allen is only one good player Hibs have, he is by no means the only one, his natural ability is second to none in Scottish football, let alone just the Hibs team. He is however, no more important than those around him. Fyvie, Fontaine, El Alague, Grey, Hanlon and quite a few others are just as important to Hibs as Allan is. IF we lost him it would be a blow , most definetely, but life would go on, we have lost far better players than him in the past and are still here. I think you should be more concerned that the paltry opening offer of £175k was to be paid in INSTALMENTS, I ask you, shows just how skint Rangers are when they have to try and buy players at knock-down prices on the never-never. Come back when you are prepared to pay the going rate for a quality player - shall I be conservative and suggest £750k upwards.

Agree5 Disagree0

24 Jul 2015 22:25:30
1player does not make a team yes would be a blow but your right we have 2 players in the under 19 that are as good or better than him and hibs will stay strong last season was the best I've seen in 5 seasons and as for rangers your right shows how skint they are £225k. In a 18 month payment plan GGTTH

Petri - - your first post - 'What Hibs should do is make an offer for their best player but I couldn`t tell you who that is. Would be funny tho.'
Yes it would be very funny- because that would mean you would have to offer - presumably cash & presumably a fair and decent offer & cash upfront.(& btw I don't know who our best player is either, given they've only known each other for about a fortnight - good result at weekend though)
btw -when was the last time ANY team paid full price up front for anybody???

{Ed007's Note - Other teams have credit facilities though. Hibs want any fee paid up front because there is no guarantee of them receiving further payments, this was known 2 months ago and Hibs are well within their rights to demand such.
Why should Hibs trust TRIFC with credit when banks and financial institutions don't? Businesses have credit ratings just like us and if you have a poor credit rating then there's consequences, also remember it's not just a transfer fee to be paid, there are other costs involved.(You can scrub (h), TRIFC are not paying any signing-on fees to new signings):

a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the EPL.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents. (as an example, Liverpool have spent over £40M plus VAT on agent fees over the past three years leading to this window)
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches(what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (sometimes waived).
(n) Variables and tax on variables which may or may not be reclaimable) – these would typically include legal fees, moving/relocation costs, etc..

28 Jul 2015 15:33:57
Why?
You questioned my support for Hibs because I think that Rangers are a bigger club, surely having a current Celtic player as an avatar is more questionable?
Only my opinion.

{Ed007's Note - Why is it questionable? I can't see what point you're trying to make here. At least you're finally admitting YOU think Rangers (sic) are a bigger club, other people have a different opinion, you're getting it now (clap)

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2015 15:53:36
What do you mean finally admitting it? I said all along that I think Rangers are a bigger club than Hibs, that's what all the posts were about.
All I am asking is, Why would a true Hibs supporter have a picture of a Celtic player as his avatar? I just don't get it.

Are you a Celtic supporter? Do you edit the Celtic site as well?

{Ed007's Note - But as I said all along that's only your opinion not a fact, because you say it doesn't make it so and other people have a different opinion, so who decides what teams are or aren't a 'bigger club' in a so called verbal agreement?
What if Rod Petrie said he had agreed a fee with Aberdeen as he considers them a bigger club than both Hibs and TRIFC because they play in the Scottish Premiership rather than the Championship? Then there's Motherwell - their supporters will say they're a bigger club than Hibs and so would Hearts, you'll probably find most clubs supporters in the Premiership would argue that their club is bigger than two clubs who'll play in the second tier of the national league for the second consecutive season.
And who could argue with that? Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
If I wasn't a Celtic supporter why would I have a picture of their captain as my avatar?}

I will be very surprised if SA plays on Saturday, he will probably claim he's not in the right frame of mind, in effect, sevco have got one over on us by bidding for a player when they don't have the dosh to pay for him. They must have known that Hibs would not accept that paltry offer, therefore, was the whole thing designed to upset the club the player and the fans?

23 Jul 2015 23:01:19
Where is the logic in Hibs selling their best player to their biggest rivals,he has a year left on his contract,if he does'nt want to play,put him with the youths,although i would hope he is more professional than that,what is the point of strengthening your rivals to your own teams detriment for a ridiculously small transfer fee,I would keep him to the end of the season unless you get £3million up front for him.

24 Jul 2015 17:20:37
Scott Allan was going nowhere and heading for the football version of the "scrap heap" when Hibs & Stubbs threw him a life-line to get back into the game and now we hear a transfer request has been put in.

Is request been put in by Scott Allan or by his agent who is looking to make a few quick bucks?. If I recall correctly Scott did say that he would see out his contract in recognition of the fact that he was grateful to Hibs for getting his career back on track.

As a player he has progressed under Stubbs and it is common knowledge that he would like, if possible, another shot down south but at present not a single club in any league in England have shown an interest in him. It would appear that the board are not looking at the bigger picture with regards to promotion but only looking the derisory transfer fee offer from Rangers who are likely to be our main competitor in the race for promotion.

If, as has been reported, a transfer request has been submitted following a bid of around £250-£300k from Rangers then the board should reject any follow-up offers from Rangers, take the hit on such a small fee (forget any add-ons) and stick him in with the "stiffs" until January or such time as his contract is up then send him on his merry way.

My message to the board is simple. Do what our old Chairman Tom Hart did when the "Old Firm" tried to raid our Club. He told them all to GTF unless the valuation met what he and the Club were prepared to accept.

Similar with the Daily Record who tried to dictate the time on a Friday when the press conference would be since Rangers had changed their times, he told them to GTF as well and informed them that press conferences would remain at the same time as they had been for years to meet the Evening News deadlines and not the Daily Record deadlines.

Although he isn't no superstar, Scott Allan has progressed since he came to ER and he seems to have forgotten that fact. I just wonder if the board have given serious thought as to how many, fed up, Hibs fans will stay away from ER if they accept this offer from Rangers.

Now is the time for the board to stand up and be counted otherwise it could be doom and gloom for the foreseeable future with an ever diminishing support.
