Bradford have parted company with Jon McLaughlin. McLaughlin played 137 times for the Bantams after joining at the start of the 2008/09 campaign and had featured in all three of City's pre-season friendlies, but now leaves after six years at Valley Parade.

He's an Edinburgh native. We need a keeper.
Certainly more plausible than this Stokes nonsense.

Anybody know who's scouting for us the now ed. {Ed017's Note - marsella as far as im aware.

Getting told Billy mckay has been given permission to talk to hibs. Could be confirmed by Friday

(6)
(8)

More ridiculous than even the Stokes rumour!

(3)
(4)

How is billy McKay joining, playing with Inverness, more ridiculous than stokes, playing with Celtic current champions and playing in the champions league!! Are you mad haha

Not true. Spoke to Paul Kane last sat before he went back to Spain. Hibernian are for sale and there is another party interested hence the reason Paul Kane and co are trying to buy. So we WILL NOT go into admin like some other cheating tramps we all know
1 other thing! Petrie still has a big say on what happens. LD when she came says she wants to promote our youth players. Well how come she withdrew 5 contracts of 5 really good under 20s 1 of who was captain and a very big strong centre half after butcher offered them all 2 year contract and she never even seen them kick a ball. Things will get better. But the rot in the club needs to be removed. GGTTH

(5)
(2)

It has been going about that Kevin Doyle has been making his interest known of possibly buying Hibs

(3)
(3)

No matter how often a rumour is repeated it doesn't become the truth.

(6)
(2)

Hibs have been for sale for years BUT Sir Tom has repeatedly said only to the right buyer who will guarantee Hibs future.

Stubbs in a race with Oldham to sign Miguel Llera. Keeper Robbie Thomson also a target.

(4)
(2)

Llera is 34 years old and Thomson has signed for Cowdenbeath

(4)
(3)

Would take the big centre back! Need a big man at the back like old rob jones. Guaranteed he'd be better than nelson and with his experience could help Forster and Hanlon develop

(8)
(2)

Defender has been offered a contract by Oldham after trial.

Ed I saw this as well on Wikipedia. offered deal on 21st july. could be true or not

Ed I have heard a rumour that we might go bust due to farmer maybe bailing out it's just what I heard but have you heard anything I hope this isn't true {Ed017's Note - stf would sell not bail.

(13)
(9)

Go take a class in business studies, pal.

(8)
(10)

Virtually non existant season ticket sales, loss in top flight revenue has left Hibs in a perilous finacial predicament, the mortgage repayments will swallow up a huge chunk of that, there are lump sums due this season and next, from what I've heard Administration has been discussed at ER, Stubbs has no budget to work with.

(8)
(9)

You're a very convincing actor, Jambo kid.
Absolutely no financial problems at Hibs. Even if we did, Tom Farmer would get involved straight away, which he hasn't.

(6)
(7)

Are you deluded his are in a financial mess. no season tickets = no money tom farmer is not going to invest a penny he never has. don't think admin will happen but our accounts ain't pretty

(5)
(9)

there is no financial trouble at hibs and Stubbs has money to spend

(5)
(2)

Stubbs has money to spend?! Why in gods name isn't he spending it then?

Roy Carroll and Hallam Hope both to be confirmed this week

(4)
(4)

The same Roy Carroll that was number 1 for Greek champions Olympiacos last year yeh. ? Would be surprised if that was true.

(5)
(0)

Anyone confirmed would be a brucie bonus

(4)
(0)

Carroll has slipped down the pecking order at Olympiacos, getting on a bit now but would still be a top class signing. Doubt is true

(2)
(0)

Carroll never played last season in Greece and has brought his family home and looking for a new club.
Can't see him coming to Hibs though.

(3)
(1)

I can easy see us getting carroll he is a has been although he was never very good, why should we buy a old keeper just because we have heard of him before? give the jersey to young boy kevin p

Stokes could feature tomorrow for celtic but looking likely that he could join hibs by the end of the week on loan deal. Celtic looking at a young french striker from lille on permanent deal. I thought stokes joining was people on here on the wind up but after talking to a couple of celtic contacts its not looking out the question at all

(7)
(12)

Wake up! we are not getting stokes back why would he be loaned out if he gets his game and why would he join hibs in the championship playing part time teams? and don't say because rangers and hearts we are not getting him and we are for sure not getting griffiths back either before you make up sh*t about him to!

(7)
(3)

Utter twaddle. He's injured anyway. There's no way on earth he'd drop a division

(6)
(2)

Aye right. {Ed017's Note - no more stokes please

(3)
(4)

Is he is he bringing Messi with him as well you need to go and get your medication now.

Hartlepool striker Luke James has agreed personal terms after nominal fee agreed between clubs. Former League One apprentice of the year and top scorer in all comps with Hartlepool last season as well as their player of the year. Will be a good signing for you guys and a big miss for us pool fans.

(7)
(9)

Similar to what I had heard late on Saturday night. Good young player with a very decent future according to a Hartlepool fan I text yesterday.

(4)
(3)

He's off to Sheffield Wednesday.

(3)
(3)

Agreed personal terms between which 2 clubs, do you mean

(0)
(1)

This the same Luke Janes that Sheffield Wed have had a £500k bid accepted for then aye?! Move along. nothing to see here.

Oh yes he is

Before replying to dales comment I done a bit of digging. I thought it was nonsense but after speaking to Ryan Watson regarding the matter it looks highly likely to happen. Stokes COULD be confirmed this week

Who is Ryan Watson?

What did we all make of the French Keeper we had in the last game I was pretty happy enough with him surely he is a worth a punt seeing we've got nobody else? Also apparrently but this is only coming from I guy I work with Celtic Youth Player Paul George is due to come down and train with us for 2 weeks?

(3)
(1)

Was he better than williams? Nope!

(1)
(0)

Really liked Williams, guarantee anyone we get will not be as good. Especially some unknown French guy who couldn't get a game with brentford.

(0)
(1)

Apparently an academy team goalie who had his contract extended turned up at brentford and asked for a trial, think he's done the same after farid told him we need a keeper

Stokes to be confirmed on season long loan deal by Tuesday. I understand this will sound an odd one but watch it happen. - Dale Blackhall, inside source from easter road

(7)
(9)

Yes that's definetly going to happen. Stokes is going to leave champions league side Celtic who have easily won the spl for the past 3 years in a row to move to hibs who recently were beaten by Hamilton to get relegated to the scottish championship how could we not believe you?

(9)
(3)

Behave yourself man! Stokes is not a championship player. A move like that would be madness, you clearly made it up

(7)
(2)

As much as I'd love to see this, there's no chance

(6)
(2)

Ed. was at game last night. We played well tried to pass the ball. Clean sheet but not sure about defence. Hanlon keeps getting cought on wrong side of attacker. Remember cifki at er. 3 of last 4 managers have been centre backs but can't solve it. Harris looked good. {Ed017's Note - glad we are at least getting the ball on the deck.defence is always a worry

(4)
(1)

Not sayin it going to happen as I also find this rummour hard to believe, however I have heard from two differnt sources this morning he is comming to Hibs on loan.

(3)
(4)

Re hanlon at least he's on a side nelson spent last season on his arse watching forwards pass

Ed why don't we have a look at more foreign based players? Was really impressed with Garcia tena and tony andreu from Hamilton so how come hibs can't snap up players like that again? Is it a money issue? {Ed017's Note - scouting and bad judgent.

(7)
(1)

I agree as United and Motherwell appear to attract half decent foreigners

(4)
(3)

Celtic seem to be linked with a lot of forwards maybe new boss doesn't fancy griffiths what chance we can get him back to his beloved hibees

You know I found it intreasting that sir Alex was given time to build a club and not a team at manchester utd. Sir Alex looked at the youth and the younsters when he took over and developed them into a winning club. The thing Alex got was time and backing from the board and fans someting no other manager has had since. Every Hibernian fan knows that the club needs rebuild from grass roots to the team. Am not saying that Stubbs is a Sir Alex but someone has to be given time to turn the youngster and youth players at Easter RD into a winning team. The club have made a lot of changes to how the youth develop is going to be done its going to take time. Stubbs backroom staff have all worked with under 20 and lower age group and with team having so many youngsters it could be a benift to Hibernian. let's just look at what going on at Easter Rd as everbody thinks it going to be a 2 horse race but let's just waite and see how things work out.

(8)
(4)

Well said Leeanne

(6)
(3)

Don't think you get it non league and other championship clubs pay more than hibs its purely down to rod and wage structure stubbs had six good players ready to sign and lean whos just rod and toms hooker have fecked it up

(3)
(6)

Been watching preseason the young lads seem to be playing with a bit freedom, good to watch! your here's no questions about Stubbs tactics he knows the game! Come on the mighty bees!!

(5)
(1)

Must agree were playing with confidence which thrives through the teams!

(5)
(1)

The trouble is confidence is fragile.
Easy to be confident when playing Stirling etc. - harder to remain confident when playing harder teams.

(3)
(1)

We didn't get foreigners because Fenlon was ignorant to non UK/Irish. He reluctantly took Kujabi as he was already in UK on trials at the time.

Foreign players excite the fans, they get season tickets bought.
Whereas we're persisting with players that fans hated last year, only muppets would currently buy ST's.

21 Jul 2014 16:30:41
I do not think Hanlon or Stevenson are good enough for hibs {Ed017's Note - paul is a midfielder not a centre half.thats where he played as a junior.lewis gives 100% but will never be better than average.

20 Jul 2014 13:32:24
Still interest in nigel hasselbaink, would be good signing, got something about him

(8)
(2)

There is not a chance that Nigel hasslebaink is going to leave st. Johnstone the scottish cup winners to come to championship hibs. Fair enough we are a bigger club than them but they are a better club than us {Ed017's Note - dont think he had his ft renewed.

(3)
(4)

He's a free agent pal

(4)
(0)

Thought he had just been released by them and was a free agent.

Stubbs considering a move for Alexei Eremenko.

(11)
(3)

Would take him

(9)
(3)

No thanks, his goal scoring record is woeful for an attacking midfielder.

(3)
(7)

Just put £100 on hibs to win the league, so this kind of signing would bolster ma hopes!

(6)
(3)

You're a brave man

(9)
(5)

The team is scoring goals and not conceding goals which is a good thing which breeds confidence which is a massive thing in any level of football that would not have happened last season. So it's time to get behind the team and get st bought as no team can with our expectations can compete without that money so stump and we can still get rp out later come on. The HIBEES

(6)
(3)

His goal scoring may not be that good for a midfielder but he can plenty assists something we didn't have enough of last season like the quality of ball into the box. Alexi would bring tht

(3)
(1)

The teams scoring goals!! and not conceding!! we have played no proper quality opposition yet? part time clubs. northd hibee.

(3)

Can only lay what's in front of you

It was me that put the money on hibs, we're every bit as good as hearts, as for rangers who are u? Miller n Boyd, grab a granny ya f***ys!

(2)

Miller and Boyd are better than our strikers. Hearts are better, they showed that last season. , they'll only be stronger this year plus the signings they've made.

Hibs still in talks with Everton over loan signings, Hallum Hope is the obvious one but also interested in Matthew Pennington & Conor Grant

(6)
(3)

Loan deals, esp more than one, its a fools errand.

(6)
(5)

Would take as many loans as possible from them for their young talent IF they are better than what we have got! Our aim is to get out of this league by any means possible! If that means developing another clubs talent at the expense of our own young players than so be it

(5)
(1)

Loan signings are the devil's spawn. Pointless & produce nothing for us. I'll be even more pissed off if that's what we're getting. Might work if they're everton boys as they'll know the manager but we all know what happens with them. They really are a waste of time.

(4)
(2)

Give them a break! If a loan signing comes in and scores goals you'll be happy give the team a chance! Loan players have passion to play as well! Get some boys in!

David Mendes da Silva on Stubbs radar.

(5)
(9)

The ex killie winger? Not the one who plays for panathinaikos I take it?

(7)
(2)

Fingers crossed!!!

(2)
(1)

Does he play for juice bottles currently in Greece on big money. So I don't thinks so unless hibs have a new cash donar.

Ronjon

(5)
(4)

Stubbs could fail at hibs, the sad thing is, it will not be his fault.

(7)
(7)

Joke. Absolute joke.

(3)
(5)

It's really being stuck between a rock and a hard place for Stubbs. If he doesn't get promoted, we'll call for his head and get a manger in who can get us out. If he somehow creates a miracle and gets us promoted, I think we'll still get a new manger, they'll take no risk in being relegated straight away. Personally, I don't think Stubbs was the right option.

If that's the panathinaikos player, that's a great signing. Experienced, versatile, good all round player. Way above the level we currently have, would he be willing to come to the first division but that's the only thing.

Guys it'll most definitely be ex killie player. Think about it, he's a free agent. That's hymn to petrie's ears.

(5)
(4)

If Stubbs fails, and it is too soon to say if that will happen, it will be his own fault.
You can argue about finances?Petrie until the cows come home but the fact is that Hibs managers have, and have had a bigger budget than many other clubs in Scotland. Clubs like Dundee Utd, St. Johnston, and Inverness who do ok with much less money.
Strange other teams can get "quality" but Stubbs appears to be struggling.
Sow looks a good prospect for Hearts but players of this standard seem to be missed by Stubbs.
Could it be he doesn't have the contacts etc. that Levein/ Nelson and other managers have due to his inexperience.
He is unlikely to get the heave ho after a period with Hibs - it would cost a small fortune to get rid of his back room staff!
At the end of the day this disaster lies with Butcher who took a team from 6th place to relegation within the space of 6 games.

(5)
(5)

Stubbs is finding it harder to attract players than he thought he would. Agents are telling prospects that Rangers and Hearts are the only two promotion prospects, and many don't want to risk coming to Hibs and being stuck at that level.

(4)
(2)

Stubbs will do a job time is a healer let's get behind our man!

(8)
(2)

Yes the ex Killie winger.

(2)
(0)

Well said

(3)
(0)

Yes he will, but you can only piss wi the c*ck uve got and he don't have much of a handful right know.

Take him I guess, got a bit of flair, maybe one to come off the bench

Looking at the "banter" is getting really tired.
All I see is Hibs fans moaning about the club, the team, this player, that player.
There is a new beginning at Hibs under Dempster and Stubbs. It's going to take time and panic buying (as we have done for years) is, as we all know, not the answer.
So why not give them a chance, I am sure we will see a few more signings and I sincerely hope a transformation in the existing squad.
Yes, it would be nice if Petrie was gone, but I am sure that will happen in due course.
They need our support to lift the team and get us back where we belong.
Get positive, get a season ticket or get to a few games, be a supporter not a moaner.
Give them a chance.

Borders Hibee

Cant agree more the last few years have been awfull this year could be the new beginning let's get behind the team and management forget petrie for now and let's see if dempster is true to her word about who's running things
GGTTH

(6)
(4)

Same stuff spouted, uberfans etc. well i'm afraid not, sick of it serious investment needed in the squad or we will stay where we are or some time

(8)
(5)

Most of the starting team that got us relegated are still there. WHY wouldn't we moan?

If they can't beat Hamilton or Raith, who can they beat!?

All we've added is a reject) and El Alagui who may not be as good as he was first time round at Falkirk.

We don't need to panic buy. There was loads of good players available that we could've got in there quickly to sign.

Jamie McDonald, why was there no offer? Explain that one. That wouldn't be a panic buy.

Rangers game is approaching soon, so do you expect us to play a youth in goals or a 40 year old.

Get a reality check, things are awful.

Half of our fans must've gone to those positivity classes. Turning AWFUL situations into a positive.

As I've said, Stubbs could turn out to be a genius (unlikely thought). If he isn't, and we get hammered by Rangers and Hearts in first 3 games, WHAT will all you positive people be saying? "It's only 3 games in, give them time" garbage bla bla!

(7)
(6)

Spot on. The past is history.

(4)
(5)

You talk about SERIOUS INVESTMENT required in the squad but where that money coming from. Season ticket sales well down on last year and we in a lower league. Motherwell, St, Johnstone have already made statements that they have no money to invest in there squad like so many other scottish teams. let's look at the good young players we have at Easter RD who have spl experance and let them play good football. Am sure the manager knows what's required to make the squad better and is working on that. Stubbs will give all players a change useing the under 20 team as well. let's not forget our last manager didt give our experanced players a game so he must have been inpressed by the younger players at the club. At the end off the day I don't want to be sitting next to a negative person

(5)
(4)

We panic buy mostly every year because we don't push the boat out and sign the players we want. Which is happening again this year I could put money on it that Stubbs hasn't got his first choice players in so hibs being hibs are now going further and further down Stubbs list of players. Same old story every year. By the time we get the players in rangers and hearts will already be 5-10 points clear of us and we will be playing catch up. How many players released and we have brought in 2.

(4)
(2)

Why would you want ex hearts players?

(2)
(4)

The last manager got us relegated by not playing experienced players and sticking with Stanton and Harris too long as they were not up to the task!

(3)
(3)

This year will not be a new beginning, unless we've got at least another 11 good players coming in. This year, I predict, will be one of mediocrity, disappointment, let downs, and a typical hibs attitude.
We are extremely unlikely to finish first or second, which is abysmal considering two teams out of administration liquidation or whatever are outspending us, hell we'll be lucky if we finish second. For years (large understatement) we've had nothing to shout about. We go to Easter road, watch the odd win or two, finish in the bottom half of the table more often than not, star players sold, managers leave. Now relegation. But not gaining promotion from this league, and for some fans to be happy with that! To accept excuse after excuse about money, about a transitional phase for rebuilding, it's all as I would say bull excrement. This is a whole new level of disappointment. That's what I think of your 'new era', same attitude, different words to describe it.

(5)
(2)

Can anyone say our current team is good enough to compete with Hearts or Rangers?

Hearts were playing like a top 6 SPL team and added in some decent players on to it.
Hibs were playing like a lower championship team and have only added 2 in.

There's not even a debate to it, things are very worrying.

New signings need time to settle in a place and adjust to a managers tactics. So there isn't actually plenty of time. We needat least 4 in by tuesday or we're screwed!

(5)
(2)

Why talk about our current team. Judge teams on day one of the new season. Stubbs is being systematic and measured rather than take name players past their best and players he sees as not good enough. He wants determined, fit players who have bottle something we have lacked.

(4)
(3)

Hibs will do well to get there fans back after the shambles of last season.
Be grateful there's still banter and an interest mate, there's thousands that don't give a toss and will never be back

Benny The Ball

(6)
(1)

Why do fans think a new season brings miracle changes to players? We have the bulk of the squad for this season who gut us relegated and some like Stevenson and Hanlon have been through about 8 managers and never delivered! Leopards don't change there spots Nelson will still kick the way he faces Hanlon will get bullied by first division forward as they are more physical! Craig worst captain in history and can't jump, tackle, pass, we have nothing up front but a reserve from Dundee Utd and sick note Hefferman but the new head coach who had a list of players at interview has signed two and is already spouting the garbage about new signings being a couple of weeks behind the rest I terms of fitness this has the Petrie mark all over it waiting till August to ding players no one else wants that are unfit and we will be behind other teams when the league starts on the 9th

(3)
(2)

To the person who posted that they are sick of it and states that investment is needed, I thank you. How much are you going to invest?

(1)
(1)

Im willing to bet that the fans on this thread who are urging us all to be positive are teenagers. Well heres a few points to think about from an auld git whos saw (and followed) Hibs through two relegations.

Why ex Hearts players? Ralph Callaghan and Michael Stewart both top players for Hibs.

Wheres the money for new players? Weve released something like 15 players from the wage bill. How much money has that saved and why can't we buy quality with some of it?

If you really think we will get promoted with our squad you are delusional. We have never been in a position where we have fans accepting we might not come up first attempt after relegation. Now explain to me please why employing a youth team manager who is struggling to strengthen a team that got us relegated should fill us with optimism?

Ive watched Hibs since the seventies yet I can't recall such apathy from such a large section of our support, ever!

All I've ever heard is apathy from hibs fans how many times have we said"typical hibs" give stubbs a chance 2 years get behind him Jamie McDonald no for me there are other keepers out there at least let these guys he signs play and please get a centre half Nelson is no good for championship as they try and play on the deck most of there clubs anyway

(1)
(1)

I posted the original that started this thread and I'm sad I did. All its done is bring the moaners out to slag the team.

And to the guy who thinks i'm a teenager, sadly not, I've been supporting Hibs through thick and thin for 40 years. So yes I've seen all the lows too and yes I agree there seems to be a large contingent very unhappy and yes its worrying.

My point is we are Hibs supporters, we should still get behind the team or there won't be a team.

Lets see what Stubbs does, what style of football we play, whether we can build this year for a successful future.

I share all your concerns but let's try and be positive and support the Hibees.

Thoughts on jermanie Johnson? Yeh he's old but still got pace and experience that would add to the squad

(5)
(4)

Ed: we keep hearing about forwards and midfielders. has everybody forgotten how bad the defence was. Nelson and Hanlon one is passed it the other could never defend. if stubbs turns them round it will be a miracle. {Ed017's Note - still a long way to go before the window closes

(9)
(4)

Hear hear!!! been saying this 4 ages. t last some 1 who agrees. northd hibee.

(4)
(3)

Forget about the window closing we have about 5 games before that, we need to be ready for them or we will fall to far behind

(7)
(3)

You would have thought they`d have been out the door first.

(7)
(1)

I think hanlon will be ok he's been chucked in with some useless defenders nelson sorry wore than a man short,
don't know why better players have been allowed to leave and a lot of the dross is still there why have we a goalkepe coach and no goalkeeper also a cach for every three players, we need a spine andfrom the dunf game he played a back 3 gers and jambos will pick3 or 4 goals of that system easy and so wil everyone else in tha league, we need goals and moe than farid will provide, its embarasing being a hibby just know we should've finished second last year and got relegated the new dawn should start with our oversized board surely. still pay more get more that's the reality we pay less get less.

(5)
(1)

I did think of our defence as being worst in league, but they did actually have 6th least conceded goals!

I know Nelson is bad and will be slower, but we need a striker, winger and goalie first. CB and CM afterwards.

(2)
(1)

Hanlon is not good enough, his marking, positional play is terrible, and does not show enough aggression to play that position, has no leadership skills which at the heart of the defence is a must. he's not dominant enough to play ch. has had the longest aprentership that I've ever known a fitba player have. been at easter rd far to long. northd hibee

Anyone know how mcpake was not given a chance at the end of the season when it was obvious we were struggling defensiivly wish we had kept him instead of nelson then we might have been on the right lines

I am getting fed up of this now. Coming on here and into the bounce site every night eagerly looking for news of quality players (as we have been promised) being signed. We are still no further forward, only unsubstantiated rumours, which people then get excited about one way or another and I can't fathom that out when they haven't actually been signed! How can you get excited or hot under the collar about players we haven't signed, never heard of and don't know whether they are any good or not.

The build up of the management team seems to be taking shape o. k. but it is news of players being signed that supporters want to hear about, particularly when the club is in it's current state of having shifted 18 out the door and brought just 2 in and when you consider that our first competitive match is 2 weeks on Monday against the people at Ibrox I am getting a sick feeling in my stomach.

I thought AS would have arrived at ER with a list of players from down south, probably from the lower leagues and one or two youngsters looking for a season of first team football to harden them up, who he knew could do a job for us in our present predicament. If there is such a list we seem to have signed one from it. Why only one?

The club are not keeping us informed of progress on this front at all and Ed just keeps saying "there will be two signings this week and when it gets to the end of the week it changes to watch out for announcements next week. "

signed

Far from impressed.

Hibs have never spoke about what they are doing until it's done stop worrying

(3)

Yes but we start in a fortnight every other team is ready know and may add 1 0r 2 we need to add 8 or 9 whom may not be even fit when signed- shambles every year

(0)

No chance we'll sign 8 or 9. This is it. The team that's left, the two we've signed and a few youth players promoted. I can only see 1 or 2 at the very most coming in.

Its not on it good one.

Not a chance. Was Sheff United's best player last season. Why make these things up? Doesn't achieve anything.

Not on what m8? Think the lad means he has a mate in liverpool academy or works for them?

(2)

It sometimes does achieve. If people spread rumours, people will end up mentioning those names to scouts, coaches or manager if they bump into them in the street.
That puts the idea into their head and might end up pursueing it!

Getting a bit concerned now, only signed 2 players to date & the Hearts are signing players left right and centre. I think we will struggle this season coming up unless we start signing more players, at least five. 18 out and 2 in, I've done the maths! Your thoughts Ed please. {Ed017's Note - there will be new players.id prefer stubbs to get players he wants and that he belives will want tp play for hibs and not just pick up their pay.there will be lots of youth involved this season from the youth team that done well last season so we are not going to sign 10 to 15 players.six at most in my opinion.no concern here because youth getting their chance to develop is a good thing for the club long term.

(12)
(5)

Well said ed there will be at least 6 players coming in and as ed says they will be better quality signings as for hearts they are signing willy nilly but they haven't yet signed a quality player and we've signed 2

(9)
(10)

Seriously guys wake up, Stubbs has signed 2 huddies, Hearts have put together an SPL team, Rangers have strengthened again, Hibs will struggle to get into the top 5!! {Ed017's Note - maybe we should just give up on hibs altogether.

17 Jul 2014 20:34:05
The big question is will we give stubbs the time to rebuild Hibernian. If we lose ground on Rangers, Hearts in the league will we turn on Stubbs like every other manager we had?. I see we have new backroom staff yet again, I think its time to give the new manager time as the amount off players, managers and coaches we paid off must be close to a millon over the years.

(8)
(6)

How long do you want to give him if things go tits up?

It`s great big Al is pictured standing with is pals on the website but it would be better if they were players.
When he said he was bringing quality to Hibs did he mean coaches because what`s the point if we`ve no players.

I can`t believe we would go into any season with only youth. Great if we have young guys coming through, it makes a change but every team needs experience.

(6)
(4)

Hearts haven't quality but we have? Eh

Farid is only proven at Sco championship level, whereas Buaben is SPL. What is Gray to you? Stop deluding yourself. We're currently using all our relegation players.

P. s Ed', it's only good using youth if they're actually good. What if they're as bad as handling? We're screwed {Ed017's Note - what if they turn into a team like mowbrays?

(7)
(5)

Get a fecking grip all you people slotting hibs and the manager and spouting that the likes of bauben class signing get back to the hearts page as far as us true hibby are concerned we are moving forward I don't believe we will come back up this season but when we do hibs will be back where they should be top 4_5 no worries now get behind our famous team ggtth

(7)
(7)

Ed some of these have a point. Our youths are unproven. The jambo youths did better last year. We do need more quality and quick {Ed017's Note - they are proven at under 20 level.time for them to prove they have a future for themselves.not because they are forced to through club mismanagement and stupidity but becasue they will have their chance.im not saying we have world beaters but i think you may be suprised at what we have in the youth ranks and now is the time for development to begin as part of rebuilding the club.if and when we get back to the SPFL i would prefer us to be ready to do so.it may take two seasons.is this such a disaster.by then the youngsterrs will be well on their learning curves and improved as players meanwhile the finances of the club will be improved withe potential gates this season with rangers and hearts and if we dont go up this season and have a succesful next again gates should be good again through good results etc.reality of the situation is we find ourselves in a position that lets face it no one wants us to be in however i think this is a fantastic opportunity to build something special at the club ove the next few years.

(5)

Bauben was wi utd not a regular so he ended up at thistle and now hertz his career going backwards all the time. wouldn't class him as a major signing they were potters signings who weren't getting a regular game at utd

(4)
(5)

Hearts youngsters are coming on they have signed decent strong players. not a hope we will finish above them.

(6)
(4)

Ed Stanton hariss and cummings are the best of the young players. they were like lost sheep against an experienced Hamilton side at er. I worry {Ed017's Note - under poor management

(3)
(3)

I have been supporting since 1951 yes saw a league win. I maybe don't have 2 years. I want us back up now.

(4)
(2)

No bauben and gomis where first team starters for about 5 years at Dundee utd when they won the cup, they then got their bigger moves down south to Watford and Birmingham, never really worked that's why they're back up here, big difference, they in no way failed at utd first time round by far the opposite

(4)
(3)

We'd all take buaben and gomis in a heartbeat if they were offered to us before they went to hearts. But then again gray has just as much quality as them, how silly of me. How did I forget about the quality of gray!

"The big question is will we give stubbs the time to rebuild Hibernian"

If he is doing awful, why does he deserve a long time? He hasn't managed before, which means he could actually be awful.
If we had appointed a manager who was proven, of course you'd give them more time.
What if Hibs was Jim Duffys first job, would you say he deserved a long time to build the team? I think not.
3rd is the absolute lowest position Stubbs should have us next year, as like the SPL last year, we had the 3rd biggest budget.

As the above comment says, Hearts have proven youngsters as they finally got going last 15 games and will be a year stronger now.
How can't everyone be worried for this season? This could potentially be our worst season ever, I just hope Stubbs is surprisingly a good manager.

Our promising youngsters were Handling & Caldwell who have been useless. Harris has gone way backwards. Forster promising if used right. Stanton goes completely missing is most games until set pieces occur.

Ed', can we really afford to take the risk on the youngsters being as good as Mowbrays?

If you ask neutral journalists, they'll say Rangers will win it, Hearts will be about 10 behind and Hibs will be about 25 behind, the way things currently are.

As much as it pains me to say it I reckon hearts will win the league. went with a mate to watch man city game. they the Jambo's looked very good. fitness was very good

This, hallelujah.
Although third is rather ambitious considering the first team at the moment.

Hibernian look poised to snap up former Derby midfielder James Bailey. The player was released by the play off finalists at the end of last season and is expected to sign a deal which would keep the midfielder at the Edinburgh outfit on a one year deal with a view to a second depending mainly on the outcome of this season.

Alan Stubbs looks to be set to bolster the back line with a move for Leon Cort. The former Charlton man has spoke of his desire for a fresh challenge. The deal would see him likely to sign a years contract as the club try to gain promotion back to the SPL at first time of asking.

(4)
(3)

I think we're down for 2seasons by then we will be a team and club to be proud of again {Ed017's Note - rebuild and improve.

(8)

Yeah, why would it be any different. It's the typical ambition and desire of hibs. Spending money and fighting for the league never in a million years would that've been the case. In fact, what's the point in gaining promotion. If we can't even muster up any again, ambition and desire, for the championship what's the Goddamn point. A pay packet of money every season.

Ross Jenkins reportedly in very early stages of a possible move to Easter Road. The Watford central midfielder has spoke of his desire to play regular first team football. However the deal is more likely to be a loan move at this time.

(3)
(2)

For a fact Jenkins was released by Watford so this will not be a loan. Played 90 games at Watford before Zola was manager and struggled for games. He had loans and trials at a number of league 1 and 2 teams and never got back to his best

really wanted McFadden at hibs would've been a ace partner with alagui and Cummings hopefully he will.
Why can't we just take in riordan get him match fit and get him in he's a proven goalscorer eh?

(4)
(7)

Riordan is finished all washed up and no one wants him, time to move on.

(6)
(3)

We can't have Riordan because there's too many uneducated fans that don't want him.

I'd tell him he can train with us but has to get completely match fit soon, if he doesn't, adios Riordan, if he does, see how he does.

Free of charge.

(5)
(8)

Riordan your having a laugh he's washed up and finnished

(6)
(3)

He is done! He can't even get a game for smaller teams, why should he get a game for hibs we dnt want him! {Ed017's Note - please forget deek

(6)
(3)

I still reckon if he got fit he'd be worthhaving he'd probs play for free too

(3)
(4)

Remember that there is more to a football team than players ability, the best teams are guys who all get along and understand/fight for each other. Riordan has a reputation for being egotistical and causing problems within the group. Although he may be still have the ability to do a job on the pitch, I suspect that behind the scenes he would cause more trouble than he is worth. Do you want a team of youth players 17-20 years old learning how to be a professional footballer from Derek Riordan. I don't. Cheers Deek but your time at Hibs is finished.

What's the harm. He gets fit, we have a great player. He doesn't, then he doesn't play. No damage done?

Hibs seem to have tabs on a possible swoop to sign Shrewsbury midfielder David McAllister. However the deal is believed to have a nominal fee involved and with the boards current reluctancy to splash any sort of money this could be a signing Hibs miss out on.

This would be a very useful signing.

The fact that we're only playing Stirling won't help us in being able to judge him either.

We need players and friendlies against better opposition organised ASAP

He will demand too much wages.

Another player that would excite me. Type of player maker that can spilt open defences

If he excites you, god forbid how long we'll be in this division for.

Petrieout -

who excites you? Our U20 players? LOL

(2)

Eremenko would be a great signing as play maker and would be a class act in the first division and would make Stanton a player

The type of player we need with decent experiance but looked like he had ate all the pies when he rejoined Killie. Hope this is true not a rumour.

Hibs look to be the early favourites to snap up Simeon Jackson. The former Norwich front man had a successful short spell at Millwall last term helping them to steer clear of the drop. The deal is expected to keep the front man at Easter Road on a 1 year deal with another year extension option depending on if the club are promoted next season. However the deal looks to still be some way off as the player is reportedly looking to weigh up his options due to possible interest elsewhere.

(6)
(4)

If this is true this is a signing that would be so exciting to see at er. Great player, proven goal scorer and lots of pace exactly what we need!

(3)
(1)

He won't come to us

(2)
(2)

Strange, he signed a 2 year deal to play in Germany, last year

(3)
(3)

He was released in January 2014 and went to Millwall for the remainder of the season.

We have about as much chance of signing Simeon Jackson as we do signing Michael Jackson, want to see rumours no fairytales
