We keep going for Irish or northern Irish players ... probably coz of macphee 

I would rather we didn’t 

If their good enough, big IF, then doesn't matter where they come from.😊

Was never in doubt in my mind 

 

Whelan's dad hasn't been well of late 

 

Hence the delay 

 

 

But there wasn’t a delay. You told us two weeks ago that he had signed and the announcement was imminent.  Clearly bullshit,

More than average over the last few seasons

 

Compared to how many we signed before macphee joined 

What does McPhee have to do with Republic of Ireland international Glenn Whelan? Please enlighten us.

Whatever the thoughts are on things manager-wise, theres no doubt we have a quality centre mid pairing.

 

It's been a very good transfer window.

Some cracking comments on there from the Villa fans, looks like we might have signed a gem.

If Whelan has signed - IMO - his signing could well save Levein’s job.

 

Between Whelan and Naismith there should be enough leadership on the park to make up for the lack of leadership off it. 

 

Another one of Levein’s nine lives used up. Lucky boy!

 

A manager that works so hard to get a signing isn’t luck 

 

5 hours ago, mitch41 said:

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.

 

All top teams have more than one leader and people that can “manage” games as required

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

 

Hughes has been a huge positive influence on a number of our young players - check past interviews

Wow, well worth the Hundreds of thousands we paid him then whilst tie coaches hang about with their hands in their pockets.

Very pleasing to see the amount of well wishing from his former clubs supporters. Plenty also mentioning he's a bit of a baller.

What!!!!! Hibernian???????

 

"Glenn Whelan has sealed a one-year deal with Scottish top flight side Hibernian, after leaving Aston Villa earlier this summer."

As soon as you saw ‘top’ and ‘Hibernian’ in the same sentence, alarm bells should have went off.

On paper, yes.

Certainly we've bolstered the parts of the team that were most in need.

 

What matters is how they perform on the grass.

Both nations are above Scotland in the FIFA rankings.

 

We are signing players who play for these international teams.

Welcome. 

 

Can't wait to see a few tricolours to celebrate this, Ken just like Lafferty. 

 

Great pedigree, suited to Scottish football. 

 

 

Great transfer window. 

 

Time to kick some ass.

Leave Scott Brown alone. He is at fault for every Celtic goal conceded this year. We need him fit and playing... finished.

Hope @Morgan will back me up on this but told him on 3rd August that Whelan would defo sign.

 

Also told him the guy that told me said he would 'rip this league apart' 

 

Brilliant signing. Dont think we are finished either.

You should read the comments on the Hearts Instagram post re whelan.

"I'm here to improve players,  if I can"

 

You can't buy that kind of plain speaking confidence.

 

He's not saying players need improved.    He's suggesting he's a cut above.

A little more excited again with new goalie, midfield getting more sorted with chance of the Japanese lad.

 

I fear getting my hopes up too high before Friday though so I'm going to just keep thinking everything is still pish for now :D
