There's too much editing on this site.

Yesterday I sent a reasonable and reasoned post about the capability of our head coach and it was ignored.

{Ed007's Note - Most posts - like yours did - that aren't rumours go to the banter page:

Might be better than Higgs but I hope not.

We are in big trouble. The quality of first team player has fallen considerably in my opinion. We have lost Bogden, McNulty, Bartley, Milligan, Ambrose and Omeonga and none have been adequately replaced. Only Allan has shown to be of the quality promised by the board although we have still to see Hallberg and Naismith in Hibs colours. I know we have been plagued by injuries since the beginning of the season but because of the general lack of confidence in the entire team l do not see much hope in the immediate future.

They talk about a manager losing the dressing room. Yesterday, Heckingbottom lost the terracing. Our best player and he takes him off preferring Mallan! Really poor decision and then he has the cheek to slag the fans. This coach is clearly not fit for purpose. I must admit to having doubts from the start when he started all that rubbish about needing to get information into the players. What an insult to them never mind the champions league coach who preceded him. Poor recruitment by Leanne.

Allan was injured that was the reason for the change.

Is anyone else wondering why we haven't spent any of the '7 figure' investment ( that we can spend on players ) to actually bring in some REAL quality that this team desperately needs!? .

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Sep 2019 14:45:40
maybe the board have their doubts on secondbottom, watched the re runs of our games, st Mirren, st Johnston, motherwell and Hamilton all look better than us, st Johnston will be ok with a striker and 3 of our ex fringe players.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2019 14:51:12
and at least Hamilton managed a goal against motherwell players only giving 90 % its the extra 10% that gets goals and wins, btw hibsboy there is no argument we are easy to beat and not playing well nuff bad combo with average players and poor mngr get stubbs back and at least be watchable.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2019 17:24:57
Agree Stubbs should be given another go. Obviously has his flaws but he created a cup winning team out of nothing and his teams always played the right way. Leeann will be reluctant to admit her mistake recruiting PH.

Doidge scored a cracker yesterday and Kamberi going no where unless it’s silly money.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2019 19:13:23
I’m not saying your not a real hibby what I’m saying is give them a chance maybe 10 games or so trust me I’m as worried as you mate but I will give him a few games then judge.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2019 14:13:34
Not a cracker just saying he's no better than Oli and prob worse second bottoms tactics and team selection and recruitment aren't good is neither is he Eddie may would've been a better choice in fact Theresa may would've been a better choice sorry but he's no got it and only saving grace is I hope the new owner can see this- again never mind the investment promised where is McGinns fee went?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2019 23:51:02
Its hibs kamberi will go for any money, he's quality. And doidges left leg is chocolate melts under pressure he's just no good nuff.

11 Aug 2019 19:34:49
Really worrying performance today but Heckingbottom's reaction even more worrying. Excuses excuses. Not good enough. Players not good enough. Application not good enough. Tactics and leadership not good enough. Simple. Not worthy of our great club. Buck up or buck off.

Not fake just givin a different point of view take your rose specs off and smell the brown stuff. Loan players would b better than the guys we've signed. And will cost us again to get rid off when next guy comes in.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2019 16:19:03
At least more real hibby are giving the team and manager a chance, if you get 10 games down the line and see where we are , hibs will finish top 6 this season if not higher.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jul 2019 21:50:35
Hekky may be saying that business is done, however, should any injuries occur pre-season, he will still remain in the market until last day. That being said, I still think we are lacking some serious quality in those positions and I wouldn't be surprised to see a loanee or two, even if we can keep everyone fit before the league campaign.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

19 Jul 2019 17:10:23
Heckingbottom is reported as saying that Hibs transfer is done for this window unless something unforseen happens. If true I'm disappointed that we are not going for omeonga or another striker.

Jc, saw it all and a picture with George Best, but you need to get behind the team. no one knows if the players brought in will be a hit or a miss, but to slate guys before they kick a ball, that’s not support.

Seen them and still same journeymen just like second bottom our new manager.

13 Jul 2019 11:52:42
I hear that 4 English championship are looking at kamberi. If he goes Zurich get a large chunk of the fee and we would need 2 strikers a d a defensive midfielder, time to get some quality players into the team and bedded before the league starts.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

14 Jul 2019 10:33:22
Zurich only gets 10% and he’s still under contract so the fee would be a lot.

Looks like he's off to Aberdeen?

Agree2 Disagree1

11 Jul 2019 22:49:57
Let's be honest, apart from Scotty Allan, who was signed before he came, Hecky's signings are uninspiring and show a real lack of flair and ambition. If this translates into performances we'll struggle. Thankfully the Jambos are doing no better. Would Tony Mowbray have signed any of these guys?

Believable1 Unbelievable5

12 Jul 2019 06:13:58
What absolute rubbish I’ll pat my wages on you knowing nothing about our manager or any the players he had signed. Tony Mowbray made some horrendous signings
Konte and Konde to name two, give the man a chance . Honestly some people are never happy.

Agree4 Disagree1

12 Jul 2019 17:18:55
I've been at all three pre-season games and supported Hibs for over 50 years so I'm entitled to my view. I hope I'm wrong.

Agree0 Disagree2

12 Jul 2019 19:23:26
Mate pre season is pre season with the focus on fitness and trying out different things i.e formations and players in different positions. I’d rather it didn’t work now so the problems are ironed out for the start of the season.
Surely you can’t judge a manager on three pre season games and that’s exactly what your doing.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 14:50:26
Hibby 07 Pre season is pre season?
We have been playing teams from lower leagues and have now had 4 inglorious results. Performances have been atrocious and none of the new signings are showing any talent.
If we are serious about challenging for Europe then players from the likes of Scunthorpe and Forest green are not going to take us there.
This seems to be a case of an English manager who thinks the English league 2 is on par with the Scottish Premiership. Well it is nowhere near it.
Lennons last 3 signings came from Serie A, Portuguese premiership and the Scottish champions.

Only one remains, Scotty Allen who is the outstanding player in the team, The other two are gone and have been replaced by no-hopers. We could have got much better from within the SPL for less money.

Agree3 Disagree1

14 Jul 2019 20:16:48
Sadly, this analysis is correct. The new players are not the right type and not of the right quality. I hope Hecky realises this and takes remedial steps quickly because I still think he can be a good manager. He seems to have a good spirit in the camp and the players look in better nick than in recent years. The club needs to get behind him and invest. Our target market needs to be at a higher level.

Agree2 Disagree5

16 Jul 2019 23:13:28
English league 2 is far better than the Scottish league and more money in it.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 10:06:59
I do agree with you to an extent however there is gems out their. Gary Hooper went to Celtic from Scunthorpe, John McGinn st Mirren, Ivan sproule institute amateur team.
Hibs should be cherry picking that’s for sure. Having said that I do agree the performances haven’t been good enough. I think the manager came in and stedied a sinking ship so for that reason I’ll give him time.
I’m really hopeful these players are stepping stones to better things.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jul 2019 20:33:10
Hibs boy go lay down in a darkened room. Have you actually seen league 2 in the raw? Bet you haven't. I have and I'd rather watch St Johnstone v Ross County etc any day. You have to be on the windup. As for money? It didn't do Chesterfield much good. Cracking new 10k seat stadium sitting nr empty while they struggle to get back into the league. One of many ex league 2 clubs feeling the heat financially.

well done for copying my post youll be tellin us ojos going to sheep just like I did 2 days before he signed for them,
ps I bet secondbottom is our next manager, that's where well finish if he doesn't play the established guys and lennys signings.

30 Jun 2019 17:19:07
If Mcginn signs for Man Utd as some papers suggest then Hibs could be in line for a multi million pay out from the transfer clause when we sold him to Villa.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

30 Jun 2019 21:14:17
Well Zidane cost Real Madrid £46 million so £50 million for McGinn seems about right. He is better than Zidane after all. Will we get 10%.

01 Jul 2019 10:33:16
Yes!, and deservedly so.

Now we sign McNulty get Omeonga and Barker back!

Agree3 Disagree1

02 Jul 2019 06:12:33
Its 15/ 20% we get not 10% which if he did go for £50 mill would mean £7.5/ 10 mill for us and nowt to st mirren as they already got their share.

Agree5 Disagree0

03 Jul 2019 22:16:23
Yeah we could buy Arbroath.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2019 23:07:25
Losing faith in Heckinbottom and his signings. Arbroath was a shambles, Dunfermline not much better. Lennon's last 3 signings came from Serie A, Portuguese Premiere league and Scottish champions. Heckinbottoms paying a fair bit of money for lower English league players who are both unknown and uninspiring. We should be looking for a place in Europe this year but not with these guys.

Personally see it as a cracking signing.

seems Ojo not working out

Is it true Hibs speaking to Mulumbu's agent (apparently Lennon given him the heave)?

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jul 2019 06:18:16
Yeah i think the Ojo deal is dead, as for Mulumbu, i don't think we are talking to his agent, don't get me wrong i hope we do, but i do think its only one of they “hope this happens” rumours.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jul 2019 17:26:09
Ojo deal back on (not on a free now) but the "sheep" are in there. after they failed to do a deal with McGeouch on salary split with Sunderland for a loan.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Jul 2019 20:04:27
Looks like the ojo deal back on.

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Jun 2019 11:02:34
We are close to signing defender Tom James from Yeovil and looking at forward Christian Doidge from Forest Green possibly paying 250k for him. Looks like mcnulty might not becoming back sadly.

Believable4 Unbelievable0

23 Jun 2019 23:27:21
Along with everyone else I’ve been pleased with Heckingbottom since his arrival but this was always the danger once the transfer window opened. He was always going to look at the market he knows best which is the lower English divisions and rightly so it’s his job on the line. Unfortunately and I’m sure I’m in the majority when I say these type of unknown quantities do little to excite and leave a sense of underwhelment.

Scott Allan was always going to be the marquee signing but I’d hoped to be at least linked if not signed more higher calibre and proven players than we have done at this point. My fear is we’ll get a couple of panic loans in on the final day as we’ve refused to pay the going rate for talent.

Agree0 Disagree10

24 Jun 2019 18:28:49
Your having a laugh mate the players he’s targeted are lower league but should be above the quality their in I think he’s making a great choice of player x.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Jun 2019 18:46:54
We were looking at Doidge last year, so been on radar for a while.

McGeouch still keen on returning. latterly he did stay fairly fit with us. and I like the idea of him and Scot Allan

(curiously the injury prone Barker wants another loan spell in Scotland. think City might sell him as he is in last year of contract. but not many takers with his hamstring/ muscle record)

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jun 2019 18:57:03
Don't think so - McGeoch has activated a clause that gives him the option of an additional year at Sunderland so that doesn't indicate a willingness to return to Hibs.
Might be a possible loan signing as Sunderland not that keen on him but very unlikely.
Really liked him as a player at ER but when is the last time he has played more than half a season at ANY club?
