Well we made hard work off today's game, but got to remember that was our b team and on that I think we played well Imo we still need a out and out striker.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2018 12:17:57
We have 3 out n out strikers in shaw kamberi and McLaren who would all want jersey NO.9 are you saying these players are not good enough in your opinion?

20 Aug 2018 14:31:37
No they are good enough but we need a known goal scorer who's taking better chances imo I would bring in kenny Miller to link up with kamberi shaw and mclaren.

20 Aug 2018 18:45:13
I think Shaw needs to go out on loan to get first team football every week as I have a feeling most of his appearances this season will come from the bench.
I would bring in another striker that knows where the back of the net is NOT MILLER! to old.

21 Aug 2018 10:17:10
Still got at least a season in him as well as goals mate.

21 Aug 2018 20:48:38
He proberly does have goals in him mate but I would like us to go out and sign a younger version of him on a 3 of 4 year deal.

22 Aug 2018 15:24:18
Yes, you're probably right mate, Lennon seemingly bringing in at least another 2 players.

18 Aug 2018 20:23:13
With Milligan coming in today does anyone think that could scupper a potential deal for kamara or mulumbu?

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Aug 2018 21:37:18
Very pleased With this signing a very experienced player now in are ranks a big step up in my mind from Marvin. He is a player With much more composure.
Well done hibs for getting this one over the line.

18 Aug 2018 21:39:38
I think if we could bring Scott Allan back permanently that would be my midfield.
Man city winger visa finally through as well. About time.

19 Aug 2018 09:43:33
Milligan has been tracked by Lennon for a while and has the pedigree and experience to really help us this season, we'll need to see what he's got left in the tank at 33. Hopefully this won't affect any potential Mulumbu deal who I think would be a revelation at Easter Road, in my opinion this pushes Whittaker further down the pecking order which I'm delighted with! (Legs have gone) We all want Scotty Allan to return but I think we all know that will depend on the Celtic board putting the petty lip back in, I suspect they will but on deadline day!

17 Aug 2018 17:57:43
Given Lenny has said the team needs more investment (after last nights game) can we assume he's not been promised money from the McGinn sale? If so it would seem we're financially overstretching ourselves and the board have kept the money to ease the burden. Any thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Aug 2018 19:53:28
He’s not going to spend money for the sake of it. He’ll know who he wants within the budget limits. He’s been very successful as a player and a manager. He knows what he’s doing and I have no doubt he’ll do what’s the very best for my beloved club. I trust him and his judgement implicitly.

17 Aug 2018 20:35:23
I'm my opinion I feel they are struggling to strengthen last season's side. To strengthen we need to be better, I don't feel we are. We've lost 2 fantastic central midfielders and brought in 2 "decent" replacements, one of which is only here for 6 months. We've built on nothing from last year. I'm not knocking any of the staff involved in recruitment as it can't be easy to find the sort of players to replace the ones we lost and I can imagine they are all trying like bears to bring in a couple more. We have been twiddling our fingers over the John Mcginn saga to long, there might be money available but time is not.

17 Aug 2018 20:29:10
Hibs will have 3 players coming in in the next 3 weeks.

12 Aug 2018 22:26:07
Think Lennon made a mistake with who he started in the team today, and hibs really need to up there game if we're going to have a good season .

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 14:00:35
Just going to be a transition without SJM. We managed without McGeough because we’ve got similar players. We have no like for like for SJM.

13 Aug 2018 18:23:53
Need another midfielder Mulumba would be my vote maybe it would give Mallen the kick up the arse he needs deadball magic general midfield play garbage can’t tackle dosnt mark picks wrong pass 9/ 10 times.

13 Aug 2018 21:48:19
D agree with you for mulumba mallen will get better with every game I'm quite impressed by most of the new signings just need more training to gell together.

14 Aug 2018 08:50:19
Remember we have a long injury list ie MacGregor, Kamberi etc. And MacLaren is not fully match fit.

14 Aug 2018 18:44:49
We have to give the troops time we've lost the most influential player in the division in SJM but brought very shrewd signings in. Mallan will prove to be a very accomplished player but he's a different type to McGinn and our midfield dynamics are going to change. Horgan has massive potential along with Agyepong and both will offer us something different than what we've seen so far when up to speed. McLaren has returned but was lacking sharpness and Kamberi is carrying a knock when these guys get firing we know what they can achieve. I'd love to see Mulumba arrive as I've said a couple of times already along with a returning Scott Allan (? ) and I'd be very confident with the squad for the season.

11 Aug 2018 11:30:51
Daryl Horgan welcome.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Aug 2018 17:07:19
Sounds a good signing. I reckon we are a Scott Allan type and another back up Central Defender away from a great squad.

What will our starting line up be?

09 Aug 2018 16:03:55
Seen something saying us and Aberdeen in for Gauld. Would be a decent addition but don't think he's what we need at this moment in time. Have any of the Ed's heard about any possible transfers?

Agree3 Disagree1

11 Aug 2018 15:34:15
Would be a brilliant signing. Hibs wanting him on loan where Aberdeen want to sign him permanent. As far as I’m concerned he’s a star player and what he’s learnt in Portugal should be priceless. Sign him at all costs he’ll be an international player for years to come.

13 Aug 2018 13:10:32
Migt take some cash, but could be great long term.

08 Aug 2018 18:14:29
Hibs trying to sign Hyndman from Bournemouth on years loan before European deadline 2nyt.

Agree2 Disagree1

09 Aug 2018 14:15:26
Well he's here. an interesting one, but been "potential" for a couple of years

By the way on midfielders. I see McGeouch is out injured at Sunderland. now where did i hear that before?

08 Aug 2018 17:16:06
Sir John McGinn will forever be welcomed back to ER and embedded in the history of HFC. Hope your career is massive going forward. We look forward to seeing you blossom on the International stage too. Thank you SJM for some great football memories GGTTH.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 18:05:31
SJM is quite simply a Hibee legend!
10% sell on seemingly part of deal which could easy range from 2.5-5m alone in the inflated English transfer market.
All the best John FOREVER A HIBEE.

08 Aug 2018 00:14:03
Brandon Barker Just signed for Preston.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 03:53:36
sort of frees up Daryl Horgan if Lenny is still interested. Alex Neil got sorta one-in, one-out style.

11 Aug 2018 12:00:26
You called it there taavi.

07 Aug 2018 23:04:36
Cannot believe am posting on this page hahaha. Bird is a hibby and looking for a pub in Tenerife showing the Hibs game. Any ideas?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2018 13:10:13
Hibees blowing away the people again 😏.

07 Aug 2018 16:45:47
McGinn getting a medical and looking at £2.1m +£2m add ons.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Aug 2018 17:04:30
£2.1? Where r u hearing this? According to all media outlets inc sky no fee has been agreed?

08 Aug 2018 13:35:41
Inside mate.

07 Aug 2018 15:34:53
Anyone heard anything about Brandon Barker? Couple of cryptic posts but don't know if he's just at the wind up.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2018 23:51:26
Signed for Preston 2 nyt year loan.

06 Aug 2018 23:30:10
Hibs and Aston Villa have agreed a fee? John McGinn is traveling down to see about personal terms.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Aug 2018 03:06:05
4 million I believe. So much for the great unwashed telling us he wasn’t thst good. The boy has class.

07 Aug 2018 05:43:08
Well if Villa get £20m plus for Grealish is a snip. (I know they started wanting £40m for Grealish to meet their Fair Play probs but Spurs want to stop around £20m plus add-ons)

Helluva profit plus helluva better player. (and no niteclub trouble) !

07 Aug 2018 11:39:56
I obviously would rather he stayed but it seems Villa have met our asking price. Also soif he is going I'm glad it is not to another team in Scotland. Serves the soap dodgers right for trying to get him on the cheap.

06 Aug 2018 13:11:34
Marathonbet tweeted hibs opposition in next round one hour before live draw?

Agree2 Disagree1

03 Aug 2018 22:50:49
Defender Liam smith let go by yams I would take him 22 yr old.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2018 22:49:20
Mclaren signers on load for hibs for a year although some people did say permenent deal but at least we have him for a year.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2018 04:55:35
hope there's option to buy.
(although he'll be free agent if Darmstadt go down, bookies reckon its a fair chance)

04 Aug 2018 09:42:20
Hibs can sign him at the end of the loan for 400K apparently.

03 Aug 2018 18:12:24
I think I rightly questioned our new keeper last week but I think I may have been a bit over critical.
Thank you keeper for some of your fantastic saves in the game last night. Well done to every player and the staff and fans who all got our great team over the line.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2018 22:48:49
Lol don't let tomo hear you say that he might get upset lol only kidding tomo still love ya x.

03 Aug 2018 09:05:36
Update for those curious about Eoin Doyle. Bradford agreed to meet his pay demands
Don't know in Preston gave him a pay-off as well.

{Ed001's Note - he signed for them days ago, I reported it in the review of the day a few days back.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2018 21:25:14
Anyone questioning hibs keeper think again he was brilliant, unlike ambrose.

Agree2 Disagree0

02 Aug 2018 23:10:49
The keeper was rightly questioned after his performance last week one swallow dosnt make a summer. you're far too quick to bum players up Mallen? Passenger again.
The same player I told you was coming to hibs oh and me again! As McLaren looks almost there. This is a rumours thread NOT! Lies.

03 Aug 2018 10:13:43
Cheer up tomo we're through, we have 3 capable keepers if they were consistent they wouldn't b at hibs.

03 Aug 2018 22:45:29
Tomo mallan is a class act and I never said hogan was thee best I think people judge to quickly and I think he will come good he certainly saved us last night, but again you quick to jump down people's throats we all support the mighty and I never said you were wrong about mclaren I just quoted what Google sport said, so step down off your soap box and treat the family nice.

02 Aug 2018 22:20:56
"Jamie, hopefully very close. Close enough. Nothing's guaranteed in this game, " the Hibs boss told BBC Scotland.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Aug 2018 21:55:37
Over half a million in European Money now surely that's enough to wind up the McLaren saga well done hibs nervy but got there in the end 😱😅😂.

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Aug 2018 22:07:35
Fans rep in Greece has claimed deal is already done, we'll see how true that is in the coming days.

02 Aug 2018 23:44:53
It’s another half mill we can stick on Mcginn we clearly have the hall in our court.

03 Aug 2018 10:58:23
The ball was and absolutely is very much in John McGinns court.

03 Aug 2018 22:47:32
It's actually more than that we've made but not that it matters GGTTH.

01 Aug 2018 17:56:09
Hi Ed, just wondering if hibs are still able to make a signing before Thursdays game, or does it have to be before the first leg.

{Ed007's Note - It has to be before the first leg buddy.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2018 00:40:04
Shame was dying to see Scott Allan play a defence splitting pass😉.

{Ed007's Note - And I've been waiting since I was 6 for my own E.T. I reckon I'll get my own wee alien first.....

02 Aug 2018 11:28:04
Are hibs and Celtic still in talks for McGinn? Or has that ship sailed.

02 Aug 2018 13:51:49
He will not go anywhere this season unless it's down south as Celtic are not willing to up their bid.

30 Jul 2018 22:55:26
Just bn told hibs ARE Bringing Jamie McLaren back in a permanent deal!

Agree3 Disagree4

31 Jul 2018 08:04:54
Great news if true.

31 Jul 2018 17:13:00
Hope so.

31 Jul 2018 19:48:06
News on transfer rumour is he's not coming to hibs and is on his way home.

31 Jul 2018 21:22:22
He spent years trying to get out of the Australian league why would he want to go back? He personally wants hibs move and that’s what’s making it happen.

31 Jul 2018 21:52:48
Hope your right mate just telling what it said on google transfer news.

28 Jul 2018 13:01:39
For the past few weeks i have bee reading posts on this site and there have been a few things that have been inaccurate.
Some newspapers got wrong what Leanne actually said and so have some fans.
She never said we would have the biggest transfer budget that we have seen. She said that we would have the biggest budget.
That means more investment in youth.
More investment in our facilities.
More investment in coaching.
And of course transfer budget and wadges and other things involved with the club.
Another thing that has been said on a few occasions is that our budget would not be affected by the sale of SJM. Although it seems to have been projected by the media and by Celtic football club and by fans that it would be affected.
Hibs football club though set out a budget and stated that they wanted to keep SJM. So the budget was set before Celtics first offer came in for SJM.
So far around 300k spent on 2 players and very good players at that. Who can aswell forget about that awful keeper we have on loan to. He will not get a game though when our number 1 returns as he was signed as a back up.
From what has been said also the 21 year old man city player will be signed on loan next week as he completed a medical at Easter road today and now its just a case of paperwork and that kind of stuff.
I had hoped that we would have signed more players by now as we are in Europe but deals hibs had hoped to get done fell through.
Some how aswell i don't think Lennon would be here if he was not given the budget to replace players he new he was going to loose. IE Allan, Barker, Dylan, Mclaren.
I don't want to see hibs rush into signings that could be bad for the team as i would rather wait and get the right players.
Saying that the keeper last night was awful.
Keep the faith fellow hibees. GGTTH.

Agree3 Disagree1

28 Jul 2018 18:28:21
Give the keeper a chance, 10 guys iñ front of him weren't great in the fairies fisherm3n game either, that's Lennon's tactics as loñg as we score more than other team, saying that don't know why laidlaw no getting a chance?

28 Jul 2018 18:59:01
Having watched three games with Bogdan, two of which I attended, I can honestly say he is horrendous. He hasn't made any save of note in any of the three games, his kicking is suspect and he doesn't command his box. The first goal conceded on Thursday night at his near post might be the mistake that costs us Europe, plain and simple, criminal for any goalkeeper. I've got faith in Lenny when it comes to signings but occasionally the gaffer along with staff get it wrong, unfortunately not every signing will be a Kamberi! I really hope next week in Greece he puts faith in Laidlaw as right now Bogdan is looking like our achilles heel. You've got to take notice when all the Liverpudlian papers were mocking his performance expectedly!

02 Aug 2018 21:06:54
Bogdan was brilliat s hàlf btw 3 worldies agnst 10 meñ how çan they put a team like that out oñ a c4owd of two thsnd a week?

28 Jul 2018 00:22:37
I love my team but despair at how naive some of my fellow Hibees are.

We all know John McGinn wants to play for Celtic. We all know Celtic want him. So they put in bids Hibs won't accept or so it seems.

Now tell me. Can anyone, hand on heart, believe that there's no chance all parties have held discussions weeks ago. Neil is Celtic thru and thru. John is a Celtic fan. No one thinks for a moment that John may have already agreed to sit tight and wait for a pre contract. No one? Neil claimed John was worth 5m but he's not once criticised Celtics derisory offers. That speaks volumes given if it had been any other club he'd have plenty to say. No?

If John wanted to he could go to leanne and ask for a years extension to his contract. But we live in the real world where he won't care a hoot if Hibs receive a fee or not.

So with all that in mind Hibs should grab what they can from Celtic and move on. If its true about the 2m then accept it and accept it publicly before Celtic say "oh rubbish their calling our bluff".

Lets get away from thinking Neil and John will do what's best for Hibs. let's grow up a bit!

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Jul 2018 18:15:45
Would rather lose him for nothing than sell him cheap.
