Yup. That's an interesting quote, fair play to Levein he is a bit of a coup

 

You can see why he signed and why we wanted him to. He'll demand the ball and push us on in games. I predict this will be the signing of the summer

:clap: Well done, Hearts.

 

Well done also to Mr Levein, who seems to have played a very big part in this coup.

 

How’s the transfer window treating you, Hibs?  :biggrin:

 

 

 

What's the deathrows like on poop.net ? . maybe in their usual hide out. Bed

Yes well done Hearts.

 

I would however say that it is  Mr Leveins job to play a big part in the signing. It is in his dual role job descriptions.

 

I am also of the opinion that CL has been working very hard for a good few months lining up new personnel for this season and do not think that the last 2 or 3 weeks have been completely a knee jerk reaction. Just my opinion mind.

Actually get on the training field Monday-Friday instead of leaving it to his pals.

Few notes to any non-members
-Been training with the team for the past week, said he is fit and ready to go for Friday.
-Once Hearts were involved, he had to consider.
-Said that Levein has been great, gave him time to think with his family, impressed by ambition and was crucial for him signing.
-Knows Colin Doyle from the Ireland squad and good friends with Steven MacLean from Sheffield Wednesday days.
-Describes himself as a bit of a moaner and groaner, doesn't like losing games, doesn't like losing training, wants to get in the team.
-Not here for a jolly, here to improve players and play and had more luxurious offers on paper abroad.

-Winner's mentality, wants to win something.

"Subject to International clearance"

Does that ever get written after the initial sentence of any Celtic/Newco signing story? Ever.

7/1 Victorian. You thought you had an easy tap in but I seen it I cleared it off the line hit the post and battered my nose to juggle until I finally caught it. I've no issue with You. I imagine this post drains the effort out of you. Only imagine though. Whelan sign's 7/1 pay £8 for a homeless person to food a shower AND bed for the night on it seeing as you are such a Top Class Lad

Levein rates him so I wouldn't have thought so

 

He has some good games I guess

 

Infact if you want a prediction then there's a contract extension coming his way

Great signing and it should strengthen our midfield to front part of the team. Up to the forwards to up their game now and prove their worth.

All we need to do now is to stop lumping the ball from Berra to Uche,. Then we might get somewhere.

Tennant's  6's

:yas:

 

Great singing. He had good words of CL as well. 

Just need to get the team playing better & to start picking up results.

Maybe a wee loan deal to see how Cummings fares in the Premiership too perhaps..

Haring,  Damour and now Whelan looking good ;)

Can  Damour also play as an attacking mid if needed, basically replacing djoumn when haring is fit?

 Thought he was quite good his last game

If Glenn Whelan demands the ball and Naismith gets back to his game of shouting at others to give him the ball then all should be well. Maybe Berra will need to ditch the Square boots to pick them out and not the empty space in the corners. :)

Yeah he's has some ok games but he was often behind Lee for a place. I just dont think he's suited to Scottish football.

Would expect Berra to feel a lot more comfortable with an actual goalkeeper behind him and two quality defensive midfielders in front.

Berra should be dropped indefinitely 

really under performing and is a weak link in our defence and whole team

It said in the article I read about Damour that he could basically play any role in midfield.

Once Souttar is back he might well be unless we go with 3 CB's.

It's a massive signing for the squad on every level. He's The General never the likes we seen since Kidd Bruno in my opinion and Brellier to an extent as leadership and class goes a no brainer. Has been training along with Joel during last few weeks. Non of them are newbies. I'm sure Motherwells tactics plans have been wiped out a few times already. I hope Meshino is next.

Craig Levein has 10 days - 6 weeks of my support I hope he has it in him as a winner of my respect.

Nah, the more people that spread the word then the better the message gets across, he needs to go, now! 

Away wi ya , some people can’t be arsed with every thread being dragged the same way , people know people’s opinion yet they shout it loudly on every thread no matter the subject of thread. Theres a 200+ thread where its essentially the same 3or 4 posts all the way through. Add your thoughts to there unless they relate to Whelan

A very good signing for the club, some much needed experience in the midfield that will surely benefit the likes of Haring and Damour. 
 

That said, not comfortable with the idea of having two defensive midfielders in the side at one time.

I hope not especially with our recent signings. The guy offers nothing to the team in my opinion, too lethargic and wants too many touches on the ball.

 

I saw him have one decent game at Tynecastle when he played in a more attacking role but other than that he has offered nothing.

 

Really can't see what CL see's in him and I would hope he is not going to get a contract extension.

Very much agree with you there. Hopefully the hopeful  punt from Berra will be very limited as we now have decent players who are comfortable with the ball.

Maybe tactic one is to keep the ball away from Berra unless we are defending then he can't punt it even if he wants to. :lol:
