No way Mcgeouch will come to Hearts. If he stays in Scotland which it’s more than likely he won’t due to money it will be with Hibs or Aberdeen. 

Another Celtic loan subsidised to play for the slugs and probably a lump sum after his Celtic contract expired.That contract expires in not too many weeks,he turned down the opportunity to extend at the window probably because the gravy train has been sucked dry and he was expected to take a pittance ie Hibs wages.Very good chance he signs for us Hibs will struggle to match what we could offer.imo mind

Think you have this spot on. Hibs would match any offer made from us.

I'm with you there . But I'd love to see us openly offer him more than  hibs are .. one because he's a decent player and 2 just to annoy them and force there hand to pay more..

 

Childish but it might help us out

Would give me a chuckle as well, if we did openly target him .

Never say never, as a youngster left Celtic to join Rangers then went back to Celtic after a couple of years. Not afraid to make a controversial decision. 

Think unlikely but is a very good player and would improve us. Still doubts over his ability to avoid injuries.

McGeouch looks a bit glass to me

I was thinking exactly this. As much as he would improve our midfield he can’t seem to string a decent sequence of games together without being injured, even as recently as having to pull out of the national team due to injury. I honestly think that’s one of the reasons he ended up at Hibs in the first place tbh.

I just think in my opinion we would be the least attractive option for him from the offers he has. He will end up in the championship in England make fortune for a couple years then back up the road.

Surely we should try to sign milinkovic permanently instead of going for Templeton?

Thought similar when I read it. Then predicted that if I said anything it’d be ‘they are though... maroon glasses... “ etc. Decided not to bother. It’s the way things are on Kickback now. :lol:

Surprised it's not already been mentioned but I'd like to hope one of the three is Mulumbu from Killie. Might also explain why Clarke has come out saying he''s off to a bigger club

If "bigger club" is a rationale, then he could be going to Ipswich.

I originally said I thought McGeough would be one of the players - and I hope it is.

 

But thinking about it’s most likely from the players we have been linked with the three are - Bain, Dykes and Fraser.

Was on loan,lets say encouraged to sign for them on completion has zero intention of renewing and free in a few weeks same as Walker scenario.And Lenny can go to his door again if he likes he's off and if we fancy a dash then the way is open,No fear that Hibs could outbid us.

According to BBC website, Levein states we have already made offers to 3 new players and hopes to get 4 or 5 players signed early. He also said a number will be leaving and will announce details of those players fairly soon round about the split. Had heard offers had been made to Gordon & Temps with Milinkovic leaving but no idea how accurate that is.

Well, aye. As soon as someone pops a wee rumour or whatever in there, we can. As it is, the guys that actually get a wee snippet or two of information have decided to stop posting it because of the array of arseholes on this forum who just want to have a pop at them.

Why would anyone try and have a pop at them? .. for sharing information early rather that Letting everyone else hear it from some tabloid slump 

 

that's unreal and if they genuinely feel like that .. I hope if they are reading this that they know a lot of people will also be very grateful for them taking the time to share .. I'm sure they won't do it for their own benefit

Generally though it is not "information".  Maroonsgotop at least admitted he had no idea whether rumours about Templeton and Gordon were accurate. Others try to give the impression they are in the know.

Like I just said fa I know of 2 posters who spoke out of signings before I heard of any media release and who were right, I'm not saying everyone is ITK, a few may proclaim to be but if someone who genuinely was told or given a heads up from someone within the club and they aren't going to do it anymore because of some staged attack .. I just don't get why folk would do this

Levein doesn’t like attacking or flair players

 

Which is why he brought in Fuller, Valois, De Vries, Wyness and played Juanjo.

Let's be honest, if we heard nothing you'd be first to complain about lack of news/communication.

There is a huge difference between being cynical and actively looking for reasons to criticise.  This board is plagued by a small group of the latter.

I don't know what argument is different from what other argument. I never said Hearts are not a bigger club thamn Killie. Of course they are and I have said so.

 

My point was that I didn't think that Clarke would speak about one of his players being "off to a bigger club" if he was talking about a move to Hearts.

OK I will try again. I didn't think it was that difficult a distinction. Aberdeen by some measures have in recent years been a bigger club than  Hearts and  in turnover terms and on-field results they remain so. But I would not be pleased if a Hearts manager talked about one of our players going to Aberdeen  being "off to a bigger club" and I don't think he would do so. Celtic yes, Rangers reluctantly yes. Any club in the top two flights of English football yes.

I see nothing wrong with what Clarke said.

 

Your opinion of what constitutes a big club and what you'd be pleased with are irrelevant.

They are relevant to me in forming my opinion about the likelihood that Clarke said one of his players leaving to join Hearts was off to a bigger club.

And I didn't say there was anything wrong or inaccurate if Clarke had said it ... just that I don't think he would have said it.

Hearts are a much bigger club than Kilmarnock though. It’s such a completely ludicrous argument. There’s not a sane minded person in the land who would bat an eyelid if Clark describes Hearts as a bigger club.

So he should have said.. ''Mulumbu will be off to a bigger club, but no Hearts''.
