We really need a striker but I think Lennon could have taken us as far as he can his tactics last night was rubbish.

Agree3 Disagree1

21 Jan 2019 22:25:35
Now that Omeonga has sealed his loan all we really need now is a quality goalscorer!
You've got to applaud both Lennon and the board for the pedigree of player we're trying to entice.

Ryan Gauld is a level above most of Scotland without breaking sweat and has already said he wouldn't rule out a permanent move if it suited both parties.
Scott Allan signing a three year pre-contract is very pleasing and I expect him to arrive before the window closes after he can agree a payoff.

Once that happens I believe Lewis Morgan will arrive on a six month loan to increase our options on the flanks. That being said returning Horgan out to the wing has recaptured his early season form and we're hopefully now going to see why Lennon chased him for so long.

Tommy Block has arrived and will be knocking on the first team door by next season after a period of adjustment.
We've been linked with a few strikers and been offered just as many but it appears we're taking due diligence before plunging in.

Shankland, Cummings, McNulty are to name a few we're heavily linked with but it amazes me why no top flight team chases Stephen Dobbie. I've said for years he was the one that got away at Easter Road and has proved himself continually since leaving. He's kept himself in shape and his brain gives him a yard head start over his opponents. A penalty box predator who could also take Shaw under his guidance and nurture the raw talent.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jan 2019 12:37:50
100% agree on the Dobbie story, and i'll take any of the 1st 3 names you mention.

18 Jan 2019 16:23:34
glad to have been wrong about Scott Allen. good work by the board. Pity we missed out on o'halleren he scores goals from the wing. Heard the 2 signings are a goalkeeper and a mid-fielder, probably tom glover and stephane omeonga. agree we could still do with an out and out goalscorer. they don't come cheap unfortunately.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Jan 2019 21:27:10
Another striker will be in by end off the window I’ve heard.

21 Jan 2019 09:17:46
I to have to admit I was totally wrong about Scott. Never, ever thought he would come back on our wage scale. Fantastic signing.

17 Jan 2019 20:53:15
Brilliant bit of business by hibs with Scottie Allan but we really need a good out and out striker/ goal scorer. on the plus side I've heard there is another 2 signings to come.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jan 2019 14:03:21
Any idea who the signings might be or which positions?

18 Jan 2019 21:28:51
See Spanish hibby midfielder and another goal keeper but heard tonight we’re going to have a striker in by end of transfer window.

17 Jan 2019 03:45:17

Hibs looking for to get Lewis Morgan on loan as boules season seems to be over.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2019 16:55:02
could be a good signing as an alternative to Gauld. He was supposed to get to Dubai and sign on Monday, then it was Tuesday now it's wednesday and still no sign of him. His last game was last saturday. If he is not desperate to sign then tell him "on your bike". let's face it he has hardly set the heather on fire in portugal. we need players who want to play for us.

09 Jan 2019 16:59:33
That’s Boyle lol.

07 Jan 2019 17:24:43
Lennon says he wants 1 or possibly 2 strikers in this window. Also rumours McLaren's loan deal might be cut short (shame it has not worked out ths time) . Also hearing Gauld's loan could turn into a permanent deal in the summer if it works out. Also Byrne from Livi is apparently a possibility. I just hope he get some of these deals finalised so the players can get settled in.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Jan 2019 01:05:21
I still think strikers is a waste of time without a midfield that can compete and retain the ball.

The ones we have have shown they can score goals in front of a midfield that can do that.
I'd be happy with another player like Slivka to be honest, does a bit of everything decently well and gets stuck in.
With two players like that in the middle we'd be a bit better defensively and it'd allow Mallan/ Gauld/ Allan some space to link up and do what they're better at, creating.

I also wonder if McLaren's poor form has anything to do with getting him cheaply at the end of the season.
He's barely played and when he has he's been thrown on with little time to do anything. Maybe he's been told to stay fit and prep for then.

If we sign Futacs be prepared for lots of route one with a lightweight midfield. Smacks a bit of desperation, plus he's quite old and has never been the fittest of players so I don't see it being great.

06 Jan 2019 01:22:44
Gauld deal done!
Scott Allan next PLEASE
If we've been offered striker Marko Futacs as been reported get him on board too looks like he could give us another dimension. We've not had a target man at Easter Road for years and this boy could be the answer.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2019 15:59:13
haven't seen Gauld confirmed but agree he could be a good signing.
worry about scott allan though, he could have been signed on a pre contract but no sign of it. think either him or hibs have other options. last thing we need is a target man, we need forwards to play off a target man. kamberi at his best is a good target man. notice OZ failed to score against jordon with mclaren up front. no more needs said.

06 Jan 2019 19:50:50
spanishhibby I can't see Allan joining before end of month as Celtic will try and get some money for him first, we'll need to trust he'll insist ER is his next move and is prepared to hold out. Unless the board stump up some money I think most likely it'll be another prolonged drawn out process.

I disagree I think a target man to hold the ball up and win the aerial battles is exactly what Lennon is crying out for hence his bemoaning of Kamberi. We're still putting crosses into the box despite our decreased quality from the engine room but we're not capitalising on them, in truth we're not even challenging for most of them. Kamberi will score more off the second ball with a towering partner taking the bumps and bruises, McLaren I suspect will be sent packing not performing and unavailable too often.

Agyepong remains an enigmatic mystery, promised so much but either injury or lack of desire to play probably confirms why Lennon is searching for what appears to be a direct replacement in the English loan market. I'd be amazed if we're going to play with what is normally classed as two luxury players, especially two that are unproven in the professional ranks.

I suspect an all action midfielder will be high up on the wish list, albeit most likely not of SJM's quality. With the exception of Mallan no other midfielder has nailed down a starting place so far and I think Mallan has suffered for it. We forget he's only a boy himself, before SJM left Mallan looked like a world beater and some quality alongside him would relieve some pressure.

08 Jan 2019 20:53:22
I beg to differ Stevie Mallan has at no time looked a world beater, other than deadball situation he offers nothing! We all would look better players with better players around us but I would rather we just had better players than mallan!

04 Jan 2019 14:34:50
Rumours from the other side of Pennines is that Gary Hooper is back in light training. He is out of contract end of season, needs game time somewhere. if we could afford.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jan 2019 23:43:56
No thanks.

05 Jan 2019 05:25:00
Maybe on a pre contract for next season but what use is he to us right now when we need to turn out season around?

Can't afford to wait a month or two for him to regain match fitness and form.

05 Jan 2019 18:22:52
He'd certainly be a marquee signing but agree with above let's no let the heart rule the head, right now he's not what we need. Signed on a pre-contract and fully fit for the next campaign absolutely but right now we need players ready to go straight into action and hopefully fire us to European football.
In the current financial climate and our restricted finances I'm surprised we've not ventured more into the pre-contract world. I'll concede Danny Swanson for example didn't turn out to be the player we hoped for us but I don't think we should be put off. I'll confess I'm jealous Rangers look like they've brought in Glen Kamara and Jordan Jones on these deals, two I'd of taken happily.

05 Jan 2019 19:09:35
Pre-contracts would be good, unfortunately we have neither the money or a manager willing to utilise them.
Lennon doesn't seem to like them at all and prefers to work in real time, which kinda goes against all the stuff he's said about building for a strong future.

January is a rubbish time to have to sign players and it makes signing quality difficult, forcing us to look at loans because he'd rather have a player now than prepare forthe following season.
So we get mixed results for 4-5 months an then look at signing players that we've brought in already or lose out because other teams pay more for the form the player showed with us.

I thought Swanson was decent - whenever he came into the side he showed spirit and ability (utterly destroyed Brown at Easter Rd at the end of last season for the whole time he played), but there must have been more to it behind the scenes.

I'd like to see Gauld come in but it's unusual for the press to have a story of interest at all, it's never how we do business, so I'm sceltical there's much in it.

03 Jan 2019 23:10:47
Looks like Gauld could be coming to hibs.

Agree3 Disagree0

02 Jan 2019 16:06:44
Anyone got any news regarding signings?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jan 2019 23:17:32
Efe returning to celtic and hibs signing gauld.

01 Jan 2019 17:15:35
As expected Hyndman sent back to Bournemouth I wouldn't be surprised if Nelom and Agyepong follow suit. Scott Allan remains our top target and hopefully a loan for Mulumbu could be negotiated while we're at it! Ross McCormack, Eaves and Shankland being mentioned and I'd welcome all three as Kamberi needs help ASAP! Shaw isn't physically ready and McLaren for whatever reason has fallen out of favour.
SIGNINGS REQUIRED SEND CV TO EASTER ROAD.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jan 2019 05:43:36
Should've signed Mulumbu in the summer, still don't know why he went there - he was never going to get a game.
I know the money is the best he could hope for at his age etc but rotting away your last 2 or 3 years on the bench is a waste.

04 Jan 2019 02:42:11
Wether you believe me or not there are many players who don’t care about playing every week as long as the moneys right Mulumbu at his age dosnt care! and Scott Allan is one greedy guy! Who will go to the highest bidder regardless of who that is.

04 Jan 2019 22:27:51
I said the same thing about Allan before we brought him back on loan before, thankfully it worked out pretty well.

If we don't sign harder working midfielders that can shut the ball down and win/ pass it Allan will be ineffective if he comes back again.

Gauld is another lightweight attacking midfielder too.

At this rate we'll be playing 3 or 4 number 8s in midfield with none of them putting a tackle in or closing the ball down.

04 Jan 2019 22:55:47
Gauld would/ will be a great signing and proved before he left Scotland that he had an appetite for the game constantly wanting the ball looking to make things happen. Scott Allan we all know what he brings to the table if we can come to a compromise with Celtic and in fairness the player himself who has previously put finances ahead of his career.

However I do agree we need to balance any "creative" signings with upgraded Marvin Bartley type players which I thought we had initially with Milligan. Hence why I would certainly enquire about Mulumbu who was magnificent for Killie in this role last season second only to SJM in grabbing the games by the scruff of the neck. I trust Lennon to find the remedy this transfer window. GGTTH.

01 Jan 2019 15:50:28
It appears that Aberdeen are not chasing Scott Allan from what I can see on the Aberdeen instant news. No mention of him at all. Hearing a lot about gunnerson coming back and Ross McCormack on loan.

Agree3 Disagree0

29 Dec 2018 20:56:18
Hope lennons target is a out and out striker to help kamberi or get rid of kamberi.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2018 01:47:11
I agree we need another striker but i think we need to look at our midfield more, for years we've been screaming out for goal scoring midfielders now we've got that, but they don't seem to play the ball forward through the middle enough for my liking anymore. All we do is cross the ball and we score maybe 1 in 40 crosses. Lennons blaming kamberi and mclaren for not scoring but the service they are receiving is horrific compared to last season. And they have startes only 6 games together. lennon needs to build his team around them both imo.

30 Dec 2018 10:10:25
Looks like we're going to miss out on Scott Allan but I do agree agayponga is great but he's far to injury prone hardly saw him this season.

03 Jan 2019 02:01:22
I agree with someone else who said it before - our problems stem from midfield;

The forwards didn't suddenly all become gash since last season, they just aren't good enough to win a game on their own.

Losing SJM and McGeouch, with Allan going back to Celtic, means we're missing two hard working players that cover ground, close the ball down and can tackle but also carry/ pass it and find space to support it in wide areas plus an attacking passer and set piece taker that can carve a defence open and beat a man or 3.

It's a big ask to replace it with our budget and we haven't.

If we don't find players who can control a midfield like we became accustomed to there's no point signing strikers just to watch them all fail miserably.

26 Dec 2018 20:45:31
Good source just told me Aberdeen are favs to land Scott Alan offering a lot more than hibs.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Dec 2018 11:07:32
He left the cabbage the first time to suposidly go on to bigger and better things and if he does it again then hell meand him.

27 Dec 2018 21:23:03
Can't see it but who really cares.

14 Dec 2018 21:03:35
Hearing a from a few different sources that we are possibly in for cumdog to return to ER. Anyone have any thoughts?

Agree2 Disagree2

17 Dec 2018 01:13:44
Don’t want him proven championship goalscorer, struggled when asked to step up a league week in week out, struggled everywhere he’s went since leaving hibs attitude iffy to say the least, Scott Alan, kamara &eaves would do me.

17 Dec 2018 12:04:52
No thanks.

27 Dec 2018 11:04:33
You’ve not heard from any sources you’ve actually just made the whole thing up in your head. Like many that’s left hibs before him they always think they are better than what they actually are. Plenty examples out their Scott Allen being one of them. It’s not until they leave that they realise they have made a James hunt of things GGTTH.

27 Dec 2018 21:23:46
Well said hibby.

30 Dec 2018 01:24:38
Actually hibby I heard talk of the potential move for cummings at the start of december from a few different people but that was just talk and it was before hibees posted it so he's not just made it up in his head, like me probably just heard it from people talking about it.

11 Jan 2019 20:03:35
Would you look at that, the papers are now stating hibs are possibly interested in cummings, yet i just “made it up”.

11 Dec 2018 04:50:42
Dundees adil Nabi On hibs radar as possible January signing.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Dec 2018 21:20:02
Hope not we can get better than him.

14 Dec 2018 21:01:05
Theres only one player i’d take from dundee and that's Kamara.

17 Dec 2018 12:05:22
I agree hibbees.

17 Nov 2018 16:51:44
Tommy block from Bognor Regis on trial at hibs 18 year old defensive midfielder?

26 Oct 2018 20:42:10
Saw on Kamberis Instagram that he was with Swiss U21 defender liridon berisha in Edinburgh and at ER. Not sure if this is in anyway linked to Berisha signing but just thought I'd put it out there👍🏻.

Another day where we wasted a lot fo chances in front of g. I'd be for trying to get Shankland from Ayr in the January transfer window.

01 Oct 2018 15:18:16
Let’s bring Stephen Dobbie back too then!

25 Sep 2018 23:47:50
Brilliant display from the mighty offside goal was never offside better team got beat but we need to take our chances, still think we need another striker, and Imo kenny Miller was that striker poacher and still got goals in him .
