It's not unusual for players to train at other clubs. Cummings will still know people at Hearts and with the new regime at Hibs it's more likely we would help him out staying fit. 

Sure him and Walker are good mates

I’ve not ever seen anything from him to suggest he is a quality finisher, natural finisher or even a decent finisher at any decent standard of football. Scored a bucketload of goals in the second tier of Scottish football but then so have plenty others who have also failed when they’ve tried to step up a level.

 

Time will tell 👍🏻

Proofs always in the eating. 👍🏼

Cummings and Lafferty are probably two players who CL would see as a bad influence on our younger players.....most of whom appear to be well grounded.

 

 

If Levein thought that Cummings was a bad influence on younger players then there would be no way that he would even allow him facilities to train with us. There may be something in this. With Wighton now out for a while with an injury Cummings might just be exactly what we are looking for. He'd have a lot to prove if he did sign with us that's for sure.

Cummings has always been fairly sensible actually. 

 

I know he had his scrapes but most of that was those he hung around with and Terry Butcher helped him sort that out after the last meltdown which never got publicised.

Would help Walker also. Another player with a point to prove. 

 

Bit it of a gamble, but with no fee involved might be one worth taking.

I agree with the poster who queried why we would want another striker.  Seems to me we have more than ever of them although the quality of one or two is highly questionable.

Been at Hearts as a kid, let go after Levein came in, Hearts supporter. Might be mixing you up with someone else I suppose. 👍

So that video of him wrecking his own gaff was before Butcher?

Think you are. We need to get a bit quality in for centre mid to make that difference to the side, top end of our wage structure anyway

If we don't sign him and he is available its a massive opportunity missed. 

Those on here that don't think he won't score goals are clueless.

That penalty was brilliant. 

 

But renewing that confidence and arrogance on the park is what he needs. In the right environment.

Maybe they're basing it on 10 goals in 56 games since leaving the Scottish Championship, over half in League One. He does score, just less than 1 in 5 right now.

Forest not released him, told him to find a new club. Could mean a loan. Other players told the same Bridcutt, Ariyibi and Darrell Murphy

Cummings appears to be at a cricket game down in England somewhere. Not familiar with cricket grounds to know how far away this is, to rule out if he was or wasn't training with us today. Screenshot_20190718-203007_Instagram.thumb.jpg.a5c7672adcd7b6202f4a2f0db2c09ed6.jpg

Cummings posting on Instagram a short time ago. Looks like a cricket ground, presumably down south. Highly unlikely that he was training with us today.

Is Cummings the player the poster from HAMILTON was referring to at the plot ceremony?

Personally I’d take Cummins in a heart beat. He’s exactly the type of striker we don’t have. A penalty box poacher who irritates defenders. 

 

Scottish football is is littered with players who tried their luck down south and it didn’t work for them - Stevie May, Leigh Griffiths, Barry Ferguson and of course our very own Robbo and Rudi  Skacel and bringing both of them back worked out well. Their scoring records to appearances down south was crap yet that never figured in bringing them back. Even Sow struggled down south, so did Lafferty. Naismith had an ok record at Everton but did nothing at Norwich yet we are desperate for him to come back. Failing in England is common place for a vast majority of Scottish players who have gone down there recently.

 

Cummins on his form before he went south is an asset.

 

When Robbo was sold by Newcastle any Hibs fan who wouldn’t have loved him in their team is a liar. We have potentially the chance to right a wrong and bring in our first penalty box poacher since Robbo and Crabbe. 

 

Anyone who can’t see that he is the type of striker we need clearly hasn’t been watching us for 2 seasons

Read the actual post not what you want to take from it. Typical of your posts, see what you want to see in it. 

 

What I was saying is that Cummings time in England didn’t work,  neither did Robbos or Rudi’s. Naismith didn’t work at Norwich but was reasonable at Everton.

 

People are ripping Cummings for his stats since leaving Hibs, well Rudi and Robbo had worse stats than him down south.
