Exactly the type of player we need in my opinion.

 

We have been crying out for a decent wide player since Milinkovic left.

 

No doubt we will get an unfit player of YouTube who used to be good years ago though.

Levein's away now - that's not the way Robbie works.

Cant see him wanting to play 3/4 of a season in the championship on massively reduced wages

It’s not always easy to attract players of that quality to the Championship unfortunately. Hibs did it with McGinn though, we need to at least be trying.

Jones, Middleton and Hastie are miles of it! Unfit, terrible attitude and thinks the world is against them. I’ve heard nothing about Jones on or off the park that makes me want him anywhere near Hearts.

Northern Ireland International and a  top performer for Kilmarnock - why do you think he's rank rotten? He would blow the Championship away.

11 career goals. Hardly blown away by such thoughts.

Can see him going back to Killie, or heaven forbid, a replacement at our neighbours for Boyle.

He wouldn't be signed to score goals though,  he's a winger, we would want him to create goals.

Reminds me of Jamie Walker, both similar types of players when they are fit and playing well. I'd hope we're at least enquiring

A player who we could have had a real chance at getting back, had it not been for Levein's attitude toward him.

 

One of the most exciting players in maroon for years, and he ends up sitting on the bench for a team that got relegated from the Championship, and farmed out on loan to a Canadian team playing in the MLS.

 

**** me, being a Hearts fan has been depressing the past few years.

He's not that good. Had 3 decent months at Killie and that's about it.

 

His red card tackle in the old firm games tells you all you need to know about his mentality as a professional player. Best avoided.

Levein had the opportunity to buy Milinkovic for free and give him one of his 3/4 year contracts. CL considered that to be in breach of his budget. Instead went out and acquired a few freebies such as Damour and Washington, gave them 3/4 year contracts and cumulatively paid out more in wages than he was prepared to with Milinkovic. That was a waste of resources

Just young lads who were poorly advised and moved to Rangers, even though they had little chance of playing regularly. I’d take Jones for sure, but I don’t know anything about his off field stuff. He is a player who was solid against us at Killie though.

 

Just Sevco starting to do what the old Rangers did before them by buying up any good players to sit on their bench stopping other teams from playing them against them.

I’d have Milinkovic back in a heartbeat. Just can’t see it unfortunately. The boy is a player and he just fits Hearts.

Potentially but I also think that is too easy an excuse for those type players that end up at the old firm. I know, cause as I’ve said before I have a contact that plays for Rangers, that these guys aren’t even putting in the effort to get noticed. Too busy up town banging birds and buying stone island. They were called out at the start of pre season for not being fit enough and they hide and never tried to get fitter. Hastie went straight to training with the youths and the other two are headin the same way.

Seems like they must have thought “that’s me made it”, when they signed. Sad really, but far from uncommon. Such a shame though, as Jones was a good player for Killie. Hopefully he’ll wake up to the fact his career could go down the shitter pretty rapidly if he doesn’t get the finger out. I’ve heard people say the same things about Cochrane for us though. I don’t know how true these things are really, as I don’t have those sort of connections. I hate to see good prospects diminish though.

Probably. Sadly we are in a division that is ranked much lower than the frankly quite atrocious EFL1, at the moment.

Would be a decent signing for the league we're in, but not on a long term deal.

 

Middleton would be a better signing IMO.

He may click at hearts and kick on. My only other issue would be that he’d always want to end back up at rangers as he feels he’s been unfairly treated etx. Pre rangers he was class.

Well lads, 2056 has been a great season, winning 12 league titles in a row exactly 100 years on from our record goal scoring season.  Another Champions League as well and Celtic kicked out for corruption and The Rangers go bust for the 8th time.

 

The one thing I miss with Hibs in the lowest tier of Scottish football are the regular victories but stuffing them 10 nil on our way to another Scottish Cup victory was enjoyable. 

 

I see that Doncaster has been turned down for parole again but you can't help think things could have been so much better if it hadn't been for Levein.

Honestly... the lack of ambition, and inability to see past the OF holds this country back so much.

Bit of revisionism going on here. Milinkovic and his agent used Hearts to get a deal at Hull, it had rock all to do with Levein.

Agree mate. It also holds Celtic and Rangers back cause they constantly sign players that stop trying or progressing due to them thinking they’ve made it.

The wages on offer at the OF dwarf whatever we could offer. I'm not saying don't try obviously, but the attitude issue posted further up isn't encouraging. 

 

Milinkovic would be a good signing. Known quantity that would tear up the Championship no end.

Footballs changed a lot over the years yet Scottish footballers continue to sacrifice their individual career blinded by the lights of the bigot brothers. Like the laddie Hastie at Motherwell this lad Jones was flying at Killie. Clearly only ever bought by Rangers to weaken any opposition not necessarily enhance their own team, this kind of signing has helped kill Scottish football for so long. Suggestion that our own young superstar may well follow the same path, albeit other side of town, is thoroughly depressing. You wish these kids would show a bit of loyalty and then ambition. Two or three years like he was enjoying and Jones would surely have attracted better than a kick about at Murray Park.

They didn't really attract him - he had no other offers here. He was set to go to the States to join the league a level below the MLS until they stepped in.
