Lennon met with Stokes this week, says " it comes down to money or football " says they are not a million miles away and is buoyed by the talks he had with Stokes.
Well!

Matulevičius has been given Hibs No. 9 shirt!

Very bad sign!

James Collins springs to mind!

If Lennon thinks Matulevičius, Stokes, Murray and Graham can score enough goals in SPL then he is delusional.

We are desperately in need of a goalscorer.

P. s nobody mention Murray, he scored 4 in 4 in last seasons league cup then went on to only score 10 in the league.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

27 Jul 2017 19:58:17
What's in a number these days? Nothing
Would you be happier if he wore 14?
He is a number 9? He will play most weeks as Lennon always likes to play with a target man everywhere he's been. stokes is a proven goalscorer in this league, Murray chips in with the same 14 as last year, another 15 coming from midfield, share a further 10 throughout the defence we will be fine. We don't have buckets of money to spend?

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 22:25:54
Simon Murray didn't play as a striker for Dun Utd he played out wide. I suggested that we go for hI'm last year before the break, at the break Lennon offered £50K DU refused it. I think he's a cracking player he will get 20 goals this season if he gets to play thru the middle. I don't think Stokes will sign, he has been offered a hefty signing on payment, a bonus based on goals and a decent basic, he will still get better elsewhere. He's 29 and it's his last decent contract, I think he will go for the money.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 23:12:02
I have to echo Big L if Murray is played through the middle he'll smash through the 20 goal barrier everyone seems so obsessed with. He's scored five in three matches from open play albeit against lesser opposition but he looks sharp and I'll confidently predict he'll have fifteen goals for Santa arriving and a revised contract in January!

Matulevicius has been brought in as an old fashioned battering ram who will most likely do the unsung work for others take take the plaudits. with this talented squad they'll be plenty of takers! In Lennon We Trust GGTTH.

Robbie Keane anybody? Can't argue with goals ratio 37 years old tho would take him as a back up instead of graham.

Lennon has came out and stated he'd like to sign another 2/ 3 players after watching us the other night minus a few regulars I wonder do we actually need them? Stokes is well known to be our primary target and obviously he is an ER legend but I question whether he is required. Commons another quality player but is he a necessity (still want him)? With the emergence of 3/ 4 quality youngsters to compliment the existing squad I'll stick my neck on the line and say this is the best Hibs team in 10/ 20 years. GGTTH.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

27 Jul 2017 13:58:37
It's certainly going to be difficult to keep them all happy. We now have 9 defenders, 4 FB's and 5 CH's. If we bring in a striker, who does he play? He chased Matulevicius for a yr he's surely going to play him. Simon Murray is scoring goals and Boyle is a must for me, plus Oli Shaw's knocking on the door. We are well off in midfield as well with Slivka being added, and some young guys in there to. It looks like being the best squad we've had for a long time.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 14:42:02
Big L that is my only concern can Lennon keep them all happy? Probably not but the competition for places is intense which can only be a good thing for the club. 100% agree with you regarding Squirrel his pace and directness adds another dimension to our play and Murray's goals and work-rate so far can't be dismissed either.

Lithuanian Dave will be the target man again I agree but the explosiveness of both Boyle and Murray will be utilised at Ibrox and Celtic Park I'd imagine when we'll see less of the ball than we've become accustomed to.

Like all fans I love a new signing but I hope any new arrival now is a higher calibre of player if it's going to merit possibly hindering the progress of this exciting next crop!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 15:11:40
Good points Oban, great to see the 4 young guys involved, I wonder if their's anymore. Might have to take in a Dev game, see for myself.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 19:25:29
Best in 10/ 20? We could still easily be battling relegation as this team could only win a lot of gamss 1-0 with Cummings.

Depending on more signings, this squad could still finish anywhere between 2nd to 11th.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jul 2017 23:22:25
MrAware can you tell me a time in the past twenty years we had a better squad? Mowbrays young brood were good and we cashed in financially but the overall squad in my opinion was inferior to the Lennon's current side.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 11:27:16
The longer this goes wi Stokes the less chance their is of him signing imo. Now hearing clubs in Turkey Greece India China and others interested in him. They will pay bigger bucks than us. We had the money to offer £250K for Berry, surely they can drum up another 200K and have a go for Moult or get Stevie May in on loan.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

26 Jul 2017 12:22:14
I agree big L, it's time to move on. Stump up the money for moult or I'd love to see Adam Rooney at hibs.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 16:23:32
Big L surely you didn't think Hibs were the only club with an offer that would be bizarre. Everyone seems to be panicking yet Lennon is slowly putting a team together. He's not my first choice but if he comes he comes. Personally I would be trying to sign moat from Motherwell.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 17:17:48
Luke berry at 250 k is a big difference to at least 600k for moult then a 3 year contact at 4K a week is another 600k 1.2 million NO CHANCE!

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jul 2017 17:22:47
I'm certainly not " panicking " about Stokes, and just like you, I would prefer "Moult " I am quite surprised at the supposed amount of interest, these clubs have obviously disregarded his form when he played down south.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 17:35:27
The Dons offered £250K the well have been looking for top dollar, no one is going near the asking price of 500K plus. I think £450K would take him, if not £400K. if we can pay Stokes £4K a week we can pay Moult the same. Even Stevie May would do on loan for me. I think with the money on offer, Stokes might be tempted and who can blame him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 20:10:36
400k for moult? Is 400k more than we have to shell out for stokes if we are paying them the same a week
Luke berry was 250k but less a week
Suitors disregarding stokes form down south is a nothing if that's the case moult / mays form are just as bad.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 21:07:38
I can't argue with you, it's a fact, we don't have to pay a fee for Stokes, that's probably why their is so much interest in him and why we are trying to bring him in. My point is that if he takes the bigger money that appears to be on offer, where does that leave us? Spending some of the Cummings money to replace him with Moult seems to be a good option. You won't find many if any quality strikers out of contract who are willing to play for the wages we pay. If HiBS don't get Stokes, Moult could be a good option at the money.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 03:31:58
Not panicking over Stokes at all, don't want him.
More worried that if he drags it out another week or two and takes the money we're then left signing a freebie that's had no pre-season anywhere when the league is kicking off or being forced to spend twice as much (fee plus wages) for someone from a club in Scotland or league 1/ 2.

27 Jul 2017 18:38:05
Tomo, if you read my post again you will see that I was saying that if Stokes didn't come we could raise the cash to go for Moult. It wasn't a Stokes or Moult comparison! One or two things to consider, Stokes offer includes a hefty signing on fee, I would expect it to be at least £200K as he is a free agent and because we can't match the wages available elsewhere, and that's quite acceptable. He's 29, their will be very little re-saleable value on him at the end of his contract. Moult on the other hand did score goals at previous clubs, not great but better than 1 in 3. He is near 1 in 2 since he joined Motherwell and he's only 25. If he scores the same amount of goals for us as he did for them we could/ would sell him for £1.5 Mill. That would pay his wages, transfer fee and then some.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 00:36:27
Things might have changed wi the Slivka deal, some people think it might be a 3yr contract! I believe Juventus paid £75,000 for him 3yr ago. Both Lithuanians at ER 2nite.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

26 Jul 2017 02:15:42
He's definitely signing a permanent contract not a loan deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 03:40:58
Maybe he's impressed more at East Mains than expected and they've bought out the last year of his deal at Juve?
I'd be more than happy with that kind of contract, just hope if it's done he settles in and enjoys his football - he's a good age to get a few years and a profit at the end if he does well.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 10:27:07
It was agreed it would be to be a 1yr loan deal because he had a yr left, when Hibs got in touch with Juventus they were happy to let him go, Hibs then offered a 3yr contract and Sivka decided to agree to cancel his contract wi Juventus. Lennon appears to be delighted with the capture. If they bring in a striker and another mid, this will be the strongest squad we've had in a long time.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 12:46:35

Said he had been offered a lucrative deal, which is worrying.

I'd offer him a basic wage with big bonuses for goals.

25 Jul 2017 19:46:47
That is apparently what he has been offered! £4K pw plus a goal bonus.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 14:02:44
If stokes signs eventually, I would be quite happy with transfer window and we would be ready to go, it would still leave time for a surprise striker signing towards end of window and commons later.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

25 Jul 2017 14:35:44
Hopefully if he takes it he's up for it.
Not liking Lennon feeling he openly has to convince him to come in the press though, suggests he still fancies the money.

If he comes we have what you said aye, I'd like a quality wide player in for the left hand side though for competition and to free Swanny up to play in behind and score more.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 17:27:43
If stokes signs there's no need for a "surprise striker" just signed the Lithuanian striker and there's Murray and shaw. That's plenty. I'd rather it be someone else but If stokes is the man then we'll have to just hope he's up for it.


I'd agree with 90 and say a wingers needed more than anything else right now. That's taking into account that stokes is a definite.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 18:16:16
I think Lennon will play with wing backs next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 18:59:15
He will have to play 3 at the back to accommodate all the CH's we have, which isn't a bad thing imo. I don't see us playing 2 wingers in a game and I'm more than happy with Boyle. Lennon says he's a striker but every time, he plays wide right! I think squirrel will have a great season given the chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 19:36:20
If Stokes can't score in Championship, whar makes you think he will score in Premiership?

We struggled badly for goals last season. Cummings isn't here, so even worse. We added Swanson but nothing to suggest Lithuanian will score loads.

Very worrying if we start the season without a goalscoring forward, as the midfield can't score except Swanson. P. s Boyle scored 8 in an easy league, so probably 4 or 5 in SPL.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 22:06:41
Reported on social media site that Slivka had a medical today. Hanlon played 60 mins yesterday and strolled thru the game. Lennons going to have a headache, who to drop at CH unless he goes to 3 at the back.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

23 Jul 2017 22:36:41
Probably a 1yr loan for Slivka, must have a contract with Juventus!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 22:39:36
Slivka a loan deal?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 23:15:02
May be wrong, but he's showing as a Juventus player and what's being said is that he is signing with us to 2018. Just an assumption on my part. If he's in the last yr of his Juventus contract, a yr with us will give him a chance to win a contract with us or put himself in the shop window.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2017 10:12:58
If it's not a loan, it's a strange one for Hibs to sign a player on a 1yr contract!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2017 12:21:33
Looked a player from what I watched - good touch, puts a challenge in, mobile, turn of pace and passing.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2017 17:31:24
If it's a year's contract it'll have an option to extend surely.
If it's a loan for his last year I'd expect a similar option.
He assisted Lithuania's goal at Hampden in the recent qualifier and scored for them against Slovenia so he has some quality and pedigree, I'm hoping we can get it done.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 14:58:04
Somebody call Lennon and mention Dundalk player . Mcmillan worth a shot looking at stats methinks.

23 Jul 2017 15:53:22
See that Utd are looking at him, But won't pay a fee just now.
We should also wait until He's out of contract in January and Go for him then as well. Agree could well be worth a punt.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 20:33:23
If he's worth the punt why wait? Can't command much of a fee surely?

24 Jul 2017 09:22:16
With the scouting system that N. L. has in place I am sure he knows all about this player and most other players that will become available.

Stokes signing tomorrow £4K a week plus scoring add ons.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

23 Jul 2017 11:58:15
I thought they would have to get somewhere near £4K to have a chance of signing him. He certainly wasn't going to sign for less than the yams are paying Laughertty!

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 12:40:33
Glad we never got Lafferty. He’s keek. Not a team player.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 14:39:13
Agreed on Laugh but neither is Stokes a team player.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 15:04:25
Hopefully he can settle in this time knowing he has tried elsewhere. Edinburgh is his home. I imagine being settled in an area makes quite a difference to morale on the pitch. Lennon won't take any nonsense either.

Moult and May would come for a season or 2 and move on. I'd prefer we lose the feeder team persona and have a team of Sir Lewis'.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 20:31:22
I'd love that we had a loyal squad too but we simply won't pay enough for a young talent's loyalty and never have.
The game breeds ambition and Scotland isn't at a high enough level to quench that thirst.

May might look to leave but Moult has been at Motherwell for a few seasons so far, almost been relegated and hasn't left yet.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2017 07:36:02
But 'Laugherty' has already proven me wrong by performing at a high level, scoring consecutively and has been playing good football. It's a shame you're not a big enough club for him to sign with you.
Enjoy Stokes- he really is a good player.

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.

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

Agree1 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!

Agree1 Disagree1

22 Jul 2017 23:40:17
Not really, Deivy came from Mouscron in Belgium and Slivka is/ was a Juventus youth that was on loan in Holland with Den Bosch then Ascona in Serie B.

However they've been found it looks like Lennon is making ties with people on the continent again and that could unearth a gem or two.

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.

Aye lads, we're well on our way to winning the cup. So are you, oh wait. Ooh a manly Hobo.

I never wanted to sign Lafferty but, so far he's been the best striker that Edinburgh has seen in years.

It's a shame you're not big enough for him and have to resort to a bench player (although, for wee teams Stokes will get plenty of game time)

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.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 01:13:23
Dont think he wants to b here but his missus might tell him otherwise we might b what he needs right now regular footy pie pint and the other to calm him down.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2017 02:11:04
As L said he probably could command a bit more money but I can't see him getting it playing somewhere he feels he deserves to be since his form has been non-existent before and after 'that' cup final.

If he decides to sign I hope his head is right and he gets back to keeping himself fit and enjoying his football again.
He's got the ability to tear this league up when he really wants to play, he's done it for three different clubs already.

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.

Agree3 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.

From a guy wi history of back ops he's only ever going to be 70% what he was.

His attitude and professionalism is worth taking on to have around the squad while he goes through his coaching badges.
If he recovers enough to play sling him a few grand a game and he'll contribute on the park as well as off it. You never know, if he gets fit enough he might help Stokes find some of his old form too.

Commons signing.

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

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.

Listening to him it doesn't seem likely, seems to have been thru a lot wi his back.

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.

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.

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.

I would prefer Stevie May or Moult, before Stokes. I don't think he's as good as HE thinks he is.

Stokes told people last nite that he would b at EM today to sign!

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.

How do you know he was on the lash? How do you know he has not had a pre season?

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

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.

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.

If I knew how to do that they'd have a team of pensioners and strikers that have never scored! I'm quite sure given time I could think up a number of malicious things to say about their playing squad and insignificant manager!
