Commons has been given permission to train with the Celtic squad in order to regain fitness after his back surgery. If successful, he will sign for Hibs on a free contract.
So basically all dependent on whether he can get over the injury. If he does, I reckon he will be a good addition to the squad.

Early nyt hibees family leanne dempster has just tweeted no more buisness in or out this window nyt nyt.

think forrest at it btw who spends 3 mill over phone.

31 Aug 2017 20:31:37
Henderson Deal Nearly over the line.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Sep 2017 01:08:13
Hendo deal surprises me a good source said it was all but done what could have gone wrong.

01 Sep 2017 11:53:51
The fact that it was another piece of made up journalism from the scum rag the sun probably gives you your answer.

30 Aug 2017 17:28:22
Hibs set to sign loan deal for shane long! what a signing if pushed through in time! GGTTH.

Agree0 Disagree3

30 Aug 2017 17:42:33
Would love to belive this rumour unclegrant but you have an incredible history of posting absolute keek!

30 Aug 2017 21:05:01
If he's leaving S'Hampton then their will be much better offers on the table than a loan deal to us. Some of the lesser teams in the Prem and almost every Championship side would be keen.

27 Aug 2017 12:37:07
Maybe I meant Nottingham Forrest not Celtic in for McGinn!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2017 13:47:10
Hibs rejected the approach.

27 Aug 2017 20:23:53
Lennon saying Hibs in negotiation with McGinn to sign a new contract. EEN.

26 Aug 2017 12:24:35
Celtic ready to test hibs before transfer window shuts with an offer for McGinn, mcginn also wants this to happen, don't no wats being offered? Cash? Cash and player? Don't think we will be seeing mr McGinn in a hibs jersey much longer.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Aug 2017 15:32:28
Celtic clearly have the money although a centre half and striker are on their list of priorities. McGinn would be far better off applying his trade with Hibs. A good season for Hibs then maybe he's ready for Celtic. Far to many players leave early to the detriment to their career. Look no further than the self obsessed Scot Allan.

26 Aug 2017 16:05:45
I would have been surprised if McGinn was still with us when the window closed, I actully thought he would be away down south. Can't blame him for wanting to go to Celtic, big money, Champions league etc. I am a wee bit surprised Celtic want him, I thought with their cash, Champs league they would have went for better quality. Maybe Rodgers thinks he can improve him!

26 Aug 2017 16:18:59
Brown, Bitton, Sinclair, Armstrong, Hayes, Rogic, Ntcham, Benyu, McGregor, Forrest Hendo, Kourssi. Christie, Allan and Cifti out on loan. I think McGinn would struggle to get game time, be better off going down south, imo.

26 Aug 2017 16:47:02
Allan cifti hendo will play very little part if any atoll, Armstrong may be sold in January, bitton never bn regular in midfield brown takes an injury? McGinn straight replacement, he's got Celtic in his blood and he himself will think he's good enough.

26 Aug 2017 20:59:50
He'd be stupid to go to celtic especially in the midst of a season where celtic are stowed with midfielders. A full season where he is will benefit him more as he's garaunteed to be in the shop window for clubs down south. Domestically rodgers alters things to much to suit the midfield over flow he has at the moment whilst trying to find his best European pool of players. Mcginn aside from more dosh would be doing his self no favours heading to celtic park as he's hardly going to go straight in as a front runner in their European campaign. In all honesty I think he shows more promise than just settling for Celtic if he's patient and plays his cards right. He could end up playing a better standard week in week out as opposed to a few games in Europe every year.

26 Aug 2017 22:04:28
Celtic had bid accepted 4 weeks ago. After discussion with a number of people McGinn (who does want to go to Celtic) made the decision to stay at Hibs to play regular first team football, however the deal will go through at some stage over the next 18 months. Same kind of scenario where John Collins decided to stay at Hibs and when he did make the move to Celtic he went straight into the first team
GGTTH.

26 Aug 2017 08:41:09
Great news Lennon going to sign new contract.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 01:24:10
I don't understand why Lennon dropped Slivka today, last week's performance at Ibrox should make him the 1st name on the team sheet. You build teams round players like Slivka, not leave them on the bench.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 16:38:13
Got to trust Lennon. Don't think he would have made a difference yesterday. Most were pretty poor.

20 Aug 2017 18:48:37
They're no 18 ran the show in midfield and that would not have happened wi Slivka on the park. It was a stupid and costly decision to leave him out, imo.

20 Aug 2017 19:05:36
He made an impact as soon as he came on.
The chosen team were poor, playing three at the back against one striker at home was a terrible decision and we couldn't control midfield.
Ambrose went walkabout and Stokes was anonymous for much if the game.

Deivy and Slivka linked up really well when they came on and it was their work that created our goal.

The wrong players were brought off and the system changed too late to make a difference.

Poor day all round - poor decisions made, no pressing or tempo and passing was woeful at times.

17 Aug 2017 18:54:55
I should be more excited about our latest signing from Manchester, but I thought we were done and was more than happy with squad, just shows you the calibare of the players Lennon has assembled to compliment what's already there, he's got a great pedigree exciting talented young guy and comes in with hardly a whimper.

Agree4 Disagree2

28 Aug 2017 17:03:55
thought he played well and will get better with games if the rest can keep up wi him reminds of sproule wi tricks aswell first spell.

17 Aug 2017 15:16:28
I think he's coming on loan rather than on trial. Seems to be highly thought of and have good technical ability. Can play either in the middle or on the wing.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 17:41:45
He's here!

16 Aug 2017 01:55:30
Brandon barker coming on trial from Man City very highly thought off left winger.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 10:14:33
Watched a wee bit on youtube, tricky wee player.

16 Aug 2017 20:44:39
Heard this a few weeks ago but thought the guy was talking mince. Think it's a loan deal as apposed to a trial. Left winger should be good.

16 Aug 2017 23:58:14
Looks a bit like zammama x.

17 Aug 2017 21:23:17
I don't think he looks Moroccan at all.

18 Aug 2017 03:12:20
Zammama you havin a laugh.

15 Aug 2017 13:16:00
Boyle out for 4 weeks as result of training injury. Should be able to cope without him with the squad we've got although we'll miss him.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 13:13:11
Not surprised to see that police have found no evidence of criminality in Neil Lennon's goal celebrations on Saturday. I honestly cannot believe that the Rangers support thought otherwise. I can see a lot more trouble coming from them if Sevco continue to lose games. If Rangers and their support continue to moan and complain unjustifiably, then when they do have a genuine cause for complaint no one will listen to them.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 14:25:31
TBH does anybody really listen to them? As for Lenny, he wants to give up winding them up and concentrate on the job in hand. He surely doesn't need all the grief and he certainly doesn't need the death threats!

16 Aug 2017 13:33:28
watched all the footage, lenny was mimicking firstly the rangers supporters with the ears and secondly rangers fist pump at their first goal,
thought the ref didn't help by not booking rangers players earlier some of the tackles were so late they needed the clocks to change, stokes got away with it cause every action was provoked and the ref would have had to send more rangers players off, all in though u have to laugh newco rangers fans moaning about a referee at ibrox and to police - and you say he then cupped his ears at you sir ok were right on it lol.

12 Aug 2017 21:52:34
Great result 2day! 3-2 don't say I didn't forecast the result. That's the 3rd 3-2 win on the trot against them, long may it continue.

The lad Slivka is a real find, what a goal and he wasn't shy in putting it about. Well done to whoever brought him to our attention. What a goal from Murray, cool as they come, we should have had more.

PS Stokesy was lucky not to be off as well imo.

Agree4 Disagree0

13 Aug 2017 00:41:28
You're right Big L - wow what a goal from Slivka and Simon Murray is a gemstone. Well done the whole team and Neil Lennon. Fantastic GGTTH.

13 Aug 2017 12:26:01
Watched the 1st half on Hibs TV Dylan McGeough was outstanding. I believe he is in the final yr of his contract, Hibs should be doing something about that, regardless of his injury problem. It would be great to get him signed up and McGinn on a 1yr extension.

13 Aug 2017 15:50:14
well done yesterday lads (celtic fan) but i think that's prob best hibs team I've ever seen only 33, i know there's talk of u trying to get rooney but that boy murray up front is amazing and stkes is stokes don't think u need another striker.

11 Aug 2017 13:38:47
Tomo you heard anything regarding Rooney. It's starting to do the rounds again and rumour had it the sheep wouldn't let him go until they signed another striker and now they've signed Stevie may
I still fancy Louis Moult.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Aug 2017 15:08:51
Wether it be Rooney moult may or any other striker at 300k -500k hibs can match Aberdeen for up front spend but won't break their wage structure, that's why we are failing at last hurdle with these signings, Petrie holds the purse strings and isn't prepared to gamble on anyone player, this includes loan signings Christie Henderson Stewart are all out our range, ambrose has took a massive wage cut to get back in the window as stokes has done
Rooney with 2/ 3 years left on contract is exactly what we're up against .
up front 300k fine
weekly wage? It's not happening.

12 Aug 2017 13:57:35
As Iv said from day dot Petrie is the Bain of our existence. No ambition. Are you sure Rooney has that amount of time left?

{Ed007's Note - Rooney's contract with Aberdeen runs until 2020.}

12 Aug 2017 22:32:34
We signed Murray, Stokes and big Deity. I can't see us breaking the bank for Rooney when he'll still be their first choice up front with May alongside.

13 Aug 2017 18:18:40
Thanks for clarifying Ed no chance of a signing but hey we're the second best team in the league without him.

{Ed007's Note - Cracking result yesterday :-D It should be a good fight between you and the Sheep for second this year.}

11 Aug 2017 13:21:02
I know he has been mentioned before but what is the current status on Craig Sibbald? Is he still out of contract?
In my opinion, I'd have him over Commons. Commons possibly has more quality, but can he play all 38 plus cup runs games? Sibbald would fill the void in left mid, the only position I think we need to fill.
The squad is excellent. Hats off to Lennon. I think Sibbald is the player to take Brian Grahams wages.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Aug 2017 19:23:16
The problem is that even mediocre players can get good wages. I think Lenny/ HiBS have decided to cut down the size of the squad so that they can up the wages they can offer to players. Last season we must have had around 30 players, at the moment we have 21, 4 of whom are Shaw Martin, Porteous and F Murray all of whom are on Dev wages. That leaves us wi a hard squad of 17. I think their will be cash there to bring in another player and I would like it to be Tony Andreau. Goal scoring mid/ No 10. 1 in 2 wi Hamilton, 1 in 2 wi Dun Utd. Btw just released by Norwich.

{Ed007's Note - Tony Andreu signed for Coventry yesterday mate.}

11 Aug 2017 19:24:35
Sibbald had signed on for another year at Falkirk.

11 Aug 2017 23:06:12
I suppose Andreau is out the question then!

{Ed007's Note - Maybe he could be imperfectly registered but I don't think you can get away with that these days.}

10 Aug 2017 14:46:46
Question, can we see Slivka and mcginn both playing centre midfield or they too similar? Think that would be a great sight, both physical and can ping a pass. Also, what formation we thinking for ibrox game? wing backs? if so, then who?

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 21:33:01
It's going to be difficult to keep everyone happy this season. It's a long time since we had the depth of squad we now have. I thought Partick weren't a bad side on Sat. Their result against St Johnstone 2nite is quite telling, even this early in the season.

Agree1 Disagree3

08 Aug 2017 23:25:43
Edwards is the main man at Partick - he's their playmaker and was missing on Saturday.
Not sure how much of a difference he would've made with the way we picked ourselves up after the soft goal and took control of the game but these teams will take points off each other in the league this season.

Saints aren't as strong since we signed Swanny but they're a well organised outfit especially away from home.
Both sides lack a bit of quality but are difficult on their day so an early league cup game isn't a great indicator to be honest.

09 Aug 2017 09:55:35
Saints have been a good side under Wright for years now. Granted they lost Swanny to us but his goals were mainly from the spot. They also picked up a 500K player in O'Halloran, who scored a cracker for them at Killie on Sat. I expected Killie to do well there but Saints seen them off. Saints were clear Fav's to win against Thistle but didn't. Your right it's still early days but if Thistle had got hammered at Saints it would have been no surprise and it would have detracted from our result imo. (fitba punters theory)

09 Aug 2017 10:52:34
Totally agree BIG L and that dosnt happen often lol.

09 Aug 2017 11:20:17
To be fair Saints only got fourth last season because the yams were so poor under Cathro.
We look like Lennon has us drilled and focused, the quality we're facing is a bit more than the last few years and the players are responding to that too by stepping it up.
We look really good right now, I just hope if we have an off day we can bounce back quickly.

09 Aug 2017 19:31:06
I watched a bit of Motherwell v Huns game, the latter wasn't as bad as I thought they would be, but I think we have more than enough, 3-2 to Hibs, ring a bell? I took Hibs at 9/ 2 now 3's. Get yer cash on the Hibees.

09 Aug 2017 21:45:33
6-0 well, that was unexpected! Saturday will be a real test of character, but we have the players to deal with the pressure.

10 Aug 2017 14:49:45
6-0 means nothing. Proven that travanir can't handle stokes and he will be well up for it. Him and swanson can cause damage and Boyle and s. murray will work for the entire match. Brilliant team we have now, fear nobody. AND mark my words, hibs will be the team to end celtics unbeaten run.

10 Aug 2017 17:15:41
Ahem!

08 Aug 2017 14:16:40
Anybody got an idea of season ticket sales?

{Ed007's Note - Just over 12,300 according to a guy on Twitter that looks at that kind of stuff for Scottish games. Clubs are quite open about sales figures, especially when they're up and worth bragging about.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 00:20:53
Can't quite put my finger on it but there's something missing from this Hibs team and I don't know what maybe it's a strong holding midfielder someone like Matty Jack, or a frank sauzee. Don't get me wrong Bartley is doing a wonderful job but I want to see big, strong you know what I'm saying. Maybe I'm wrong but there's just something stopping this team from being very special. Anyone agree or disagree?

Agree0 Disagree3

08 Aug 2017 03:00:45
Big Marv is a beast of a guy but he's not really a footballer.
He's the strong workhorse doing the thankless task that allows the others to go about winning us games.

I understand what you mean, I think it's coming together more now than it was over the last couple of seasons - fitness was the main thing we seemed to lack for the longest time but Lennon's getting that into the squad now.
Fraser Murray will be the one that has the next big thing tag placed on him if he stays fit and in-form.
He links up and gets into scoring positions a lot like Latapy did, just doesn't necessarily beat players as easily.

We're coming together as a squad and that's the most valuable aspect for me, too often we've relied on one or a few players to come up with something brilliant to win is games and it's cost us against organised sides.
Now we're looking drilled, balanced and a threat from various positions and it's looking bright with other options still to gel with the squad.

08 Aug 2017 09:23:24
I was at Alloa a couple of weeks ago and saw the Lithuanian midfielder. He was given 20 mins and was outstanding. Made good runs and was very physical. I reckon he will do the business.
He never gor much chance on Saturday, but I have been following Hibs since 1972, and in my opinion, and its only my humble opinion, this is one of the best squads we have had for a long long time.

08 Aug 2017 14:47:09
I don't think big Marv will play most of the games anyway
If we play 3 centre halfs and 2 attacking full backs he's not needed in all games, mcgeouch will fill the roll of sitting mid.

08 Aug 2017 23:09:28
Agreed.

We may not have standout name/ s but this squad is simply of a higher level overall than we've had for some time and they all want to play and enjoy their football together.
It's kicked up a notch or two with the right personalities coming in.

I'm genuinely excited to see what we can do at Ibrox this weekend with Sevco barely squeaking a win over Well.
If we turn up like we have done so far and deal with the crowd it could be a big result for us. We've nothing to fear having beaten them there a couple of times and at Hampden and they're far from a polished side.
I'm trying to temper my enthusiasm but it's difficult.

11 Aug 2017 13:36:53
If big marvs no a footballer u tell him, then go get the ball off him.

06 Aug 2017 13:36:57
lennon saying today that he may still make more signings.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 14:39:56
He said it the other day.

If the window ends without more in he's happy with the business done.
The statement made about business being over and done with wasn't made by him.
If the right kind of quality comes up he'll try to sign it, he admitted there's one position he'd still look at but nothing is happening just now.

06 Aug 2017 14:44:39
Do you think he might be talking about Commons? He's been on the box twice this W/ E wi Sky, he might fancy a crack at that, replacement for McCann maybe.

06 Aug 2017 17:40:12
Maybe.
I think it's wide left still. Whether he fancies Commons for that or not I don't know.
Swanny has been great so far but we don't have any natural attacking cover out on the left if he's out through loss of form or injury and he scores more from through the middle too.
It's pleasing to see Stokes putting in some work for the team, was only 20mins but he was willing and linked up well - I think Lennon has tried to build a front two like he had at Celtic, Murray runs his socks off and gets into the scraps in the box like Hooper used to. Never gives them a minute's peace and that will give Stokes and the others the space to play.

I know I've given Stokes a hard time, but if he carries on like yesterday and genuinely wants play and put the effort in I'm happy with him coming back.

06 Aug 2017 20:29:28
McGinn was good for most of the match yesterday, he gave the guy Osman a torrid time, I actually enjoyed the battle between them, it was fair and hard. McGinn looked as if he had turned in to a man over night, he's bulked up and he's trying hard to control the midfield. Lennon obviously been talking to him. I'm still a bit worried he might go before the window closes, hard to imagine RP turning down an offer. I'm also hoping that Stokes won't upset Murray's game or Lenny doesn't move Murray wide. The lad was brilliant yesterday, he fights for every ball, he's a big unit, he's pacey, hard, good in the air, he's got so much passion from the second he walks on the park, it must rub off on the rest of the team. They should stick him and Boyle on 5yr contracts now.

07 Aug 2017 03:52:44
Agreed.

I don't see McGinn going in this window though.
He's young, he's only been with us a couple of seasons and won things and the squad is building and progressing nicely as is.
He's happy at the club and has obviously taken the gaffer's views on board and wants to improve himself.

Celtic won't buy him just now.
Championship sides won't pay enough for him right now either it seems.

I'd like him to stay at least this season and I think he'd like to take a proper crack at the Scottish Premiership too, so he may well see his deal out then go.

Things Leanne put in place from the beginning are coming together for us now, I'm genuinely excited for the next few seasons ahead if we can keep the squad balanced.

07 Aug 2017 11:49:20
I agree with hoping that McGinn stays and extends his contract maybe with some sort of release in there because when he does go st mirren are due 33% of sell on figure
I also think there's a chance of a burn out in McGinn before Xmas he's looking fitter and sharper due to non stop training
He has never stopped training thinking he wod be called up for England game and carried on right through to pre season.

07 Aug 2017 13:49:17
The sell-on clause was why I think he won't go until at least next summer, we'll want to maximise our return on the fee paid and he hasn't shown any signs of wanting away because he's happy at the club.
Aiming for European football won't hurt that at all either if we can get it.

There is the possibility of burning out but if he shows signs of it by Christmas we have more than enough in the squad to get by while he recovers.
He's always made himself available and put the graft in despite a long hard season before so a fitter meatier McGinn will hopefully cope better with it now.

04 Aug 2017 20:06:41
How many tickets are left for tomorrow's game.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Aug 2017 20:39:27
They are selling tickets 2moro for the North Stand, pay at the gate!

04 Aug 2017 17:30:15
please let stokes and gogs o conner know there's an elvis tribute act on at my local 2 night.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2017 22:04:40
I think Henderson would be a great bit of business for Hibs. He's very good at carrying the ball forward and driving at defences and has already been stated, great at delivering set pieces. The question was asked where would he fit in? He would fit in as an excellent squad player and if we remember our emergency loans from last season, Liam Henderson would not be found wanting. I would welcome him back with open arms as I truly believe he could establish himself as a regular. The reality is John McGinn probably will not be at Easter Road next season.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Aug 2017 05:14:23
What is this obsession with hendo all about? He had 2 good corners in final and one for cummins at tynie. He is pretty average good squad player i agree. We need to sign players good enough to displace those already there not waste money on squad players. Don't think lenny rates him.

04 Aug 2017 13:55:27
I agree there's a lot of talk about Henderson but he supports hibs has played for hibs is a hibs cup ledgend and is Not a regular at Celtic so fans want him back, I disagree he's an average squad player and is good enough to be a hibs regular. IMO only Marciano, ambrose mcgregor Stevenson Whittaker and McGinn are guaranteed starters and Hendo playing at his best would join these five.

04 Aug 2017 21:14:39
We need Hanlon back pronto - I hope his recovery continues.
We miss him leading the line whenever he's out of the side, but I agree with the rest of that.

04 Aug 2017 22:07:02
McGeough is a cert, best player bar none. Boyle is a cert, he's the guy that's creating all the chances, Murray is another cert, he's the one taking all the chances. Stokes will play if he's fit. wi Tomo's SIX! That's the first 11. Swanny won't be happy, neither will the 2 Lith's or Gray or Bartley, probably the best holding mid in the Prem. Lenny's got problems.

04 Aug 2017 23:48:27
Counting never bn my strong point BIG L
I'm always at sixes and eights.

02 Aug 2017 18:30:00
The yams are after Sean Derry as coach ( Cambridge Utd ) With the three NI players and NI coach already there, I suppose it makes sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Aug 2017 20:51:42
Hibs rumours BIG L?
Who gives a F. !

02 Aug 2017 21:15:17
Thats fine, let's hope the yams play as we did with fenlon, and co!

02 Aug 2017 22:25:19
You will be reminded off that Tomo!

02 Aug 2017 22:30:53
Hibs say that's the signings over. SKY Sports.

02 Aug 2017 20:30:08
That's looking for someone to put up with Levine how uninspired are they.

02 Aug 2017 22:48:43
Thats fair enough. cummins money being re-invested in the team / wages. commons still that possibility of another forward thinking midfielder. I doubt he will be anything like he was, but ye never know.

03 Aug 2017 00:39:50
Commons is under no employer pressure to return to action, that might help him get back into shape without worrying too much about it.

If he recovers there's half a chance, and he doesn't need lightning pace as long as his brain is still sharp and keen.

I'm not sure if the window is done, it was widely reported by Lennon and Leeanne that he wanted two more. That either means Stokes and Commons, Stokes and we lost out on the other, or there's still another one on the back-burner as a possibility.
