Steven Naismith - signs on loan (official)

Levien is hardly going to say. He is here now, we want him forever, he is clearly making it out like he will need to work hard as others and quite right too.

Quite simply managing expectations.

 

Two things need to happen, Norwich have absolutely got to want rid of him, who knows what might happen with them between now and July and he has to revert to an SPL wage, which may be the easier of the 2 to negotiate.

 

After all that, there may be other clubs in Scotland who will offer him something better, though I doubt that.

 

It would be suicidal for Levein to say it was a goer when he has no control over the situation beyond showing Naisy what a fantastic club we are.

 

I can't believe you even had to explain that. Folk obsess over every word.

I think Levein is just being very wise with what he says. I have no doubts that if Naismith makes a big enough impact we will make it our priority to get him permanently. Happy we have him, and if all pans out would be delighted to have him on a SHREE YEARER 

 

Spot on.

If he does well, Norwich want shot of him and no other teams want to pay a fee for him, he may be able to negotiate his own release and pay off.

We may be able to keep him.

We'll just have to wait and see.

Pretty much this, we now have 5 months for him to feel at home, which will count for a lot come the summer months

Naismith will have to come off during a game and Escobar will be whipping out the calculator to work out exactly how much it's costing us.     

Or coming on as a sub for the last quarter.

Calculator out, oyyyyyyy Naismith, that's the equivalent of 60 grand a week we're paying you .

So when you say the "initial deal was a permanent deal"why is Craig now saying it will be "very difficult" to get him to stay long term?It doesn't quite add up.

Have you never played poker before? You can't put all your cards on the table at the one time.

So you, and others, are happy we're paying a player £15k a game ( if that  was the case) Jesus, short memories of where that got us the last time we did it.


We are paying a reported £7.5K for a player that has the weegie hun cheerleaders crying into their buckfast & typing spittle-flecked rage pieces on why he should be at Rangers, goddammit.  They did not for a moment expect that we could attract a player of this caliber - an established Scottish international player who has the fans genuinely excited. 

Well worth it.

Over the past 4 years we've built a stable foundation and new stand from which to base our goal of success in Scottish and beyond. This signing is one of many that we will now make along with promoting promising youth into the first team. 

I'm also sure that as a business we (should) never reveal our negotiating strategy other than to say the way we do it has changed.

You really don't get the whole role of a supporter, do you? Finding negativity in the most positive of stories suggests that you are either very hard to please, or what seems increasingly more likely, you are simply not a Hearts fan. When things are going badly I completely understand why people start to become exasperated and question the decision makers. This, however, is an unquestionably obtuse comment from yourself. You begin with a backhanded compliment but immediately change tac and question the financial aspects of the signing. Your lack of positivity is tedious.

His whole posting history is as you have described it. It fools no one, at least not the Hearts supporters amongst us.

I've been a member of the forum since 2006. I don't post a lot, but I like reading Kickback for the snippets of information that get thrown out there (hats of to the guys that provide the info, you know who you are). His kind of negativity though is infuriating and normally leads to me posting out of pure frustration. I have absolutely no problem with fans of other clubs coming on board and discussing footballing matters from their own perspective. What I find offensive, however, is when people pretend to be something they are not, like that is somehow getting one over on the opposition. All I can say to that is, eh?!?

I was responding to the suggestion by another poster that we MAY have spent the Walker money in entirety on Naismith, but you know that, unless you've suddenly lost the ability to read other posts apart from your own.

 

Except that's not what I said at all, and it was me you were quoting.

 

I said if its the £300k from the Walker sale that's allowed us to get Naismith. I didn't suggest anything about it being ALL of the money.

 

We got some money in the bank we wouldn't have otherwise had without shifting Walker.

 

Having that in the bank might (most likely in honesty) have been the deciding factor in whether or not we were able to table a bid for Naismith's services.

 

Surprised i'm having to explain that tbh.

Simples really Erik isn't it

 

Reports we are paying him £7.5k per week.  Around 20 weeks of the season left, so 20 x £7.5k = £150k.

 

£150k left out of JW fee.

Perfectly understood, and all I said was that I hoped we're not spending ALL of it on Naismith. THATS ACTUALLY WHAT I SAID. However I seem to have attracted a wee cult following of complete spamheeds hanging on my every word and picking it apart. Wasting their time. Not troubling me in the least.

Naismith has played all his best football with number 14 on his back. Excellent stuff.

Nope - you just said that I suggested we may have spent the money entirely on Naismith.

 

I didn't say that.

You're right, I should. Work, Family life, etc, etc....I very rarely get the chance to sit down at the computer and type. I do find there are some on here, yourself included in this, that offer interesting perspectives on all things Hearts and beyond that, football in general. I'll endeavour to become more involved. :thumbsup:
