If it was me, I'd be holding out for a longer duration than 1 year.  Maybe 1 year with a further 1 year option.

 

As Whelan has probably a decent wad in the bank from Stoke & Villa, and is a free agent, there is no hurry for him to sign. Assuming his agent has given him other offers to consider.  Anyway, his wife is from Dublin, what is there in Edinburgh not for her to like.  

Maybe an automatic extension if he plays 30 games etc.

Finding suitable property in the Lothians will be easier to sort out if you are looking for 2 years.  2 young kids, so schooling will be an issue if the whole family moves.

Levein needs older journeymen to organise the team on the pitch because his management team can’t.

Naismith, Berra, McLean, Cowie, Hughes ect have all been needed by Levein to manage what was 

going on on the pitch.

 

This is just a stupid thing to write.  Having some more experienced players in the team to help teach the young players how to play the game is a smart move. It’s the same approach JJ and Alex McDonald took.  Having Sandy play beside him was a huge help for JR.

He gave Hughes another contract last summer when that money would’ve been better spent elsewhere. 

How would you know? How much was he on? What did he bring? You dont know, the end. Utter slaver of a boy.

She never said she had signed anywhere.  What she said is she's looking forward to another year of football.

Has she signed for the women's team?

Every single year we are told that you often get the chance to sign good quality players towards the end of the transfer window.

 

Every. Single. Year.

 

This year it is a stick to beat Levein with.

 

70  + players have been signed under Craig's tenure. I haven't done any graft on who the players are or were a success . This new seasons signings bare the markings of a very good side to pick from the sqaud. I'm happy with Craig's work at the moment regarding signings. My issues are with his other duties / responsibilities.

Now that's top class sarcasm. What a graft you put into that . It's also on topic. 7/1 looks a goer tomorrow.

Because we needed a CH to play when Berra, then Souttar, then Dunne got injured, had to rush Berra back to his detriment all because he wasn’t up to playing. When things got that bad he had to play him at Livi, how did that work out? He should’ve never have been signed in the first place, he was finished and playing in India. 

All to help him stay fit for NI, passes on a few tips wow. 

I know all I need to know about Hughes and his often terrible performances at ER, Celtic Park and Ibrox as I witnessed them first hand.

Now go away and work out to use the space bar.

Traditionally young players grew up in the reserve league a place to learn to developed and mature after being kicked chased threatened throttled and bullied about the pitch. Blood and bruises.

Older heads and legs have been through the wringer and know how to pass on their experience knowledge and life habits. Inspire and Influence the future stars. A man with Whelans status at club and international level ticks those boxes. The same applies to all players who have someone to compete with for a place on Matchday bar Uche who needs a classy sparing partner to compete for the jersey. The too old too young obssession doesn't hold up unless your under 25.

Indeed it is but with a plethora of coaches at hand it’s less important nowadays, it’s their job to coach players. Mulraney for instance had to ASK the coaching staff what he was doing wrong.

Hearts have today completed the signing of Republic of Ireland international Glenn Whelan, subject to international clearance.

The defensive midfielder joins the club as a free agent, penning a one-year deal until 2020.

The 35-year-old, who left English Premier League side Aston Villa at the end of last season, has 86 international caps to his name and brings a wealth of experience to Tynecastle. Having started his career at Manchester City, he went on to amass close to 300 appearances for Stoke City in the English Premier League.

The Dubliner has also made nearly 200 appearances in the English Championship following successful spells with both Sheffield Wednesday and most recently Aston Villa.

He won promotion to the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday in 2005 before going on to help Stoke City gain promotion to the Premier League in his first season at the club. Last season, he played 36 league games for Aston Villa as they went on to secure their return to the English top flight.

On the international front, Glenn made his senior debut against Serbia in 2008 and has been a mainstay in the heart of midfield ever since. He played a key role in guiding the Republic of Ireland to Euro 2012 and has captained the side on numerous occasions. His most recent appearance saw him play the full 90 minutes in the Euro 2020 qualifier against Denmark in June.
