Henderson Deal Nearly over the line.

1.) 01 Sep 2017 01:08:13
Hendo deal surprises me a good source said it was all but done what could have gone wrong.

2.) 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.



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.

1.) 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.

2.) 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.}

3.) 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.

4.) 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.}



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?

1.) 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.

2.) 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.

3.) 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.

4.) 08 Aug 2017 23:09:28

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.

5.) 11 Aug 2017 13:36:53
If big marvs no a footballer u tell him, then go get the ball off him.



03 Jul 2017 12:29:48
Stevenage striker Matt Godden anyone.
Heard a snippet we've had him looked at.

1.) 03 Jul 2017 12:48:53
Came thru non league, 20 goals, 33 games last season. 6'1" Big lad.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 12:56:50
failed at Scunthorpe, went non league and scored goals for fun, got 6 months in july 16 with Stevenage. Then signed 2 year deal in December 16 'cos they were so happy. scored 12 in 12 at one point early this year, don't think we stand a chance.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 13:51:07
Wikipedia is a wonderful thing. No chance any of you lads know anything about the guy. I could have read that all by myself lol Worth a punt? . I think so.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 13:53:42
What do you mean failed?

5.) 03 Jul 2017 15:56:18
my (wiki) cousin saw him score the winner at a really crap game at Accrington on his birthday last November. Energetic, runs in behind a lot, pretty quick - probably fancies himself as the next Jamie Vardy. nuff info?

6.) 03 Jul 2017 17:24:58
Worth a punt if he's going to be cheap enough but we need someone willing to mix it with defenders at least some of the time too.

7.) 03 Jul 2017 18:42:52
Watched his 20 goals last season on youtube looks like a decent prospect at 24 year old. Six foot plus and mobile hopefully we do follow this one up as lots of clubs are looking at him which is a good sign. Sizeable transfer fee required which might be the stumbling block but we can only hope Lennon gets the purse strings opened.

8.) 03 Jul 2017 20:33:03
We still have Graham as leverage for this stuff - he'd score some goals in League 2 I would think if any of them would take him.

9.) 03 Jul 2017 23:57:59
We can but hope!

10.) 04 Jul 2017 18:52:32
I have to agree Big L Brian Graham hasn't lived up to expectations and no-one on here has mentioned him as a possible option for the upcoming campaign which really says it all. If Graham could be used to influence a possible deal for Godden it would make sense for the club and in all honesty the player himself.

11.) 04 Jul 2017 22:38:21
I've been suggesting we try and use him to sweeten a deal for any and every striker mentioned on here because he just doesn't fit the way we're trying to play at all and isn't mobile enough to keep up with the players he plays in behind opposing full-backs to get on the end of crosses.



21 Jun 2017 01:45:36
Liam Boyce away to Burton Albion.
Thank god he never joined us a try lad with no ambition, another pre madonna it's all about me me me. Careers finished hardly any tele and you'll be lucky if he scores 10 a season. What a waste.

1.) 21 Jun 2017 03:16:40
Not bitter then?

2.) 23 Jun 2017 12:32:05
No not bitter tomo, just can't get my head around a player going to a lesser club, A club with no ambition and will achieve nothing. At least if he signed for a premier league team he had a chance of winning trophies and play in Europe.

Louis moult on target again for Motherwell. 18 goals a season for the last two surely worth a punt. Motherwell knocked back £250,000 from the Huns surely we can nip in. This lad will score another 18-20 goals this season. Barring in mind it was a gash Motherwell team over the last two seasons he's still doing the business.

1.) 06 Aug 2017 18:20:14
Simon Murray will score more goals than him this season.

2.) 06 Aug 2017 21:33:20
I agree with both of you. I wanted Moult to play along side Murray. I think they would have been a very potent partnership. If you bring him now, who drops out? Stokes or Murray. I wouldn't swap Moult for Murray.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 19:38:25
Murray hasn't proven he can score 1 in 2 in top league yet.

He has the potential to score 20 but should we really risk not getting another forward?

Stokes was rubbish last time he played in league for us so no reason why he'll suddenly be good. The fact he was useless in league but tried 110% in cup final just makes it look like a terrible attitude. I appreciate his cup final performance but there are 38 SPL games with only 4 against the team he hates.



02 Aug 2017 15:31:01
Well I'm not a stokes fan but he's here waring the green and white so he'll get my full support. I just hope Lennon can get him concentrating on football instead of his other shinanagins we will see a good player.



15 Oct 2016 19:22:52
I can't ever remember Hibs having a discipline problem in the past, I genuinely don't think lennons got a clue although I hope I'm wrong, far to many players getting sent off and it's costing us, 1 shot on target against an average team and we're supposed to be running away with the league just ain't good enough.



07 Aug 2016 14:40:26
I don't hear all you Cummings dislikes asking to get rid of him today. The lad has started off where he finished last season
He's a winner in anyone's book.



19 Feb 2016 05:18:52
I wonder if Celtic will be be after mcginn after his magnificent performances for us, it makes my blood boil that Scott Allan, Stuart armstrong and the rest of these lads that went to Celtic knowing quite well they weren't getting s game, hopefully Henderson will see the big picture and put in. Transfer request, here's a list of Celtic midfielders, would you sign for them?
Scott Allan
Ryan Christie
Stuart Armstrong
Gary Mackay-Steven
Callum McGregor
Stefan Johansen
Kris Commons
James Forrest
Tom Rogic
Derk Boerrigter
Patrick Roberts
Joe Thomson
Scott Brown
Nir Bitton
Kristoffer Ajer
Aidan Nesbitt
Liam Henderson.

1.) 19 Feb 2016 14:37:54
Great post!It seems there board have decided to buy up all the young talent to give them a great team in the future on the cheap. They could of course buy him and leave him with us for a season. Maybe chuck us an oldie or two like Scott Brown etc

2.) 22 Feb 2016 10:46:13
Hand in a transfer request??the last player that done yese where going nuts pot n kettle!!

3.) 22 Feb 2016 12:19:59
If henderson did ask for a transfer Celtic could say no!! Just like we did when Sa asked for one. What we wouldn't do was continue to upset the club the player and the fans like your lot did! The worse thing that came out of that for me was your DiK chairmens comment about Celtic doing you lot a favour, he has not a bit of class in his body!!class

Sorry for the late response. Yeah I understand that and appreciate it however Hibs or any other club just want value for money, why should we let multi million pound teams give us money in instalments whilst they’ll pay top dollar for players that are not tried and tested. I’m fairly sure Mcginn will end up at Celtic and obviously the deal will suit both clubs in the end, As you know Hibs took a gamble on Mcginn a gamble no one else was willing to take and although the lad has bags of talent it’s through the hibs coaching and training that’s got him to where he is today and I genuinely think he’s a 4 million pound player especially when I see the shect that go for more.

{Ed007's Note - I agree with you about McGinn mate but most transfers are paid in installments.}

Ed as always I appreciate your comments however I can’t understand the part about the amount of money Hibs are looking for which is? . At the moment the 4.5 million that has been branded about is just rumours however at the age he is and getting MOM in his last Scotland gave I genuinely think he’s worth every penny. Celtic and servo for a number of years paid ludicrous prices for foreigners that were mediocre at best yet they never part with decent money for home grown players. Every club in Scotland never get the true value of players and in reality only the Brown/ Thompson era did we get what we deserve. I see McGinn as a Scotland midfielder for the next 10-15 years and at this precise moment is one of a few Scottish top class midfielder. I personally think 4.5 is a fair price although possibly at the highest end. Every club in this league need to get value for players in need for us to develop and progress. Celtic in particular need home grown players for Europe and at this minute there’s no one better.

{Ed007's Note - The majority of transfer fees are paid over a number of installments and the 'problem' is that Hibs want the bulk of the transfer fee up front which is even stalling potential suitors in England. I'm sure when he does eventually leave Hibs and it gets down to the nitty gritty they'll make sure they get the best possible deal for themselves.
Let's say the price is the suggested £4.5 million clubs might be looking to pay it at £1.5 million a season over 3 years whereas Hibs are say looking for £3 million as a first installment.}

Another self obsessed one. Could have been a great player. Like so many in the Scottish game they get a couple of games and think they’ve made it in life.

I agree with you m8 but the facts are were Hibernian F. C & we shouldn't be playing in the second division on a public park, we were once one of Europe's great teams do surely it's not hard to ask that we have a team capable of competing in any league, wise up m8 our team are gash & I'm telling you it's completely unacceptable
