That hits the nail on the head. Nisbet 24 (looked that up) and Boyce 30. Who knows where Nisbet will be in 6 years time but right now Boyce is a better player. 

No question that Boyce is the better player right now and all things being equal would outscore Nisbet, must admit I didn’t realise he was 24!    He’s a decent striker who will improve further but he has a ceiling and  I do think he’s overhyped, like a few of their players.

Choo choo opinions differ but Nisbet will go for a couple of million, Boyce could be bought for probably about 250k at end of season 


And Doig will be off to AC Milan for £5 000 000 😂

Scotland have very limited options for strikers. That Dykes isn’t international standard either.

He won't, he really won't go for a couple of million. Very much to Hibs dismay. Choo  choo.

Not sure he is that suited to Hibs style but I think he is decent for sure better than Boyce or Gnando for me.


Would you like a wee £50 charity bet that Boyce will score more than Nisbet?

The lack of a player sale in this window will be making Ron twitchy. A trading loss on their next set of figures is probably inevitable. We’ll no doubt be seeing stuff in the media in the run up to the next window, from their  pet journos touting Doig and Nisbet attracting interest from everybody and fanciful money being suggested. Ron won’t want to be ploughing money into a failing business model. He’ll want sales to shore up things and take his cut. These players will go for much less than is being touted.

Turning down whatever the offer from Birmingham was for Nisbet may well be Hibs Andy Driver moment. 

 

Birmingham did sign the big huddie from Aberdeen, Sam Cosgrove, for however much and he's such a success he's on loan to Shrewsbury in league 1. Aberdeen also sold the other huddie - Scott McKenna - to Notts Forest and that's not exactly gone well for them.

 

There is little chance of Nisbet moving to the EPL and I'm sure Championship clubs will look at other recent singings from our league before considering large bids. Hibs will be lucky to get £1m for him.

I think some of these clubs will be looking at purchases like Cummings , McKenna and Cosgrove and realising these players are not worth whats being bandied about pricewise. You look at the Derby County situation and that reinforces the idea they may stop throwing that money about on players like those mentioned above.

There's been speculation since day one on here that Ron Gordon is bad news for Hibs but I'm yet to see it. Bringing in plenty sponsors, backing his manager and got European football under his ownership already. Would rather we just focused on doing the same than wishing for something that might never come over there.

 

They're still shite though, and a bunch of ****s so **** them.

Heard from 2 impeccable sources that all is not well at the Methadome,Peruvian Ron made in clear that the club had budgeted for at least 

1 player sale at a minimum,to quote Elvis 'significant unrest' between their new CEO Ben Kensell,the football department and Ron Gordon.

 

Graeme Mathie binned before the derby,crazy decison by the Hobos and the recent upturn in their fortunes is largely down to him,beleive he has a role lined

up at Celtic now,Ross not happy that he is away.

 

This is going to get very entertaining watching this unfold.....:levein_interesting:

 

 

P.S the new American winger was not signed by the football department.....

I heard the exact opposite.

I think if you're a Hibs fan taking Ron the con at his word you are foolish. They think everything is hunky dory but nothing lasts. Ron holds all the cards and he is not there for the love of Hibernian FC. 

 

He sees assets and maybe not today, next week or next year they will get their cumuppance.

what a lot of **** . Do You think if a decent offer had come inf for any of them they wouldn’t be away? Do you think Mathie was turning down bids? Do you believe the hype created around these over rated players?

 

 Nobody rated them anywhere near the made up bull hibs were peddling.

I just don’t get it with the likes of nisbet and Doig. Overrated garbage and if they got 500k for each of them they would have won a watch 


Nisbet is a lazy overrated uninterested fat prick who shouldn’t be anywhere near the Scotland squad, and Doig is an average full back who runs up and down the wing doing sweet fa other than running up and down the wing 


The only one I would take would be Doyle and who could probably get a game for us 

there is a reason they are constantly in the press peddling their players for big money. 
 

what club really does this ? If your player is worth something clubs will bid good money. They have a lot of players that are overhyped pish IMO and will regret the day they didn’t sell Rab C when a bid was made

If a decent offer had come in then yes, they would have accepted it. You've misunderstood my post. RG blames Mathie for no offers coming in because its his job as sporting director to bring in and sell players and RG fully expected at least one of their 'marquee' players to go for good money and none of them did because no one was interested and Mathie got the blame for that.

Not even sure it matters.

the precedent has been set.

any club can liquidate , be bought out of liquidation and continue as if nothing happened, including laying claim to history and trophies etc.

our governing body and media etc will fully endorse this shuffle without skipping a beat.

Anyone prosecuted for such chicanery will receive enormous payouts.

insolvency practitioners can sell the club as an entire thing instead of breaking it up to get best value for creditors , 

football debt is therefore utterly inconsequential beyond temporary penalties .

Has that not always been the case? Hibs were under the present day rules liquidated as recently as 1990.

Your what I would call a galloot in that I do not pine for anything Hibs but would rather you did not make tomtit up to get attention. 

I don't read Hibs net, but bash on I rarely venture on here nowadays either as posters like the First Minister dominate all threads, I do however have a few Hibs friends who say he is not looking that interested if that helps you.

Thing is Driver was a genuine prospect at that time - just 20/21 with a few years top level experience and had broken into the England U21s. We had realistic expectations of him getting us more money before he got injured. Nisbet is 24 with one season in the top league under his belt. He's in the Scotland squad because we literally have no-one else.

We told you so...

 

It's not like they got a close up look of what happens when you sell your club to someone who simply doesn't get football in this country and has plans that are completely unrealistic. Speculate to accumulate doesn't work for a club our size - Romanov proved that. Once in a while you'll get a big sale, like us with Gordon or them with McGinn but it's the exception to the rule.

 

There's no doubt to me that Gordon looked at how easily HIbs turned 250 grand into a few million and saw the dollar signs flashing in front of him. 100% he's said to Mathie or whoever - "Find me another John McGinn". Instead they signed all his brothers and any other St Mirren player who had a decent season. 

 

There are a few other things that should worry HIbs fans. Scrapping the academy scraps a pillar of their identity - "conveyor bet of talent" has been their mantra for a while. Showing no interest in the fan scheme thing they had going shows he wants this to be a one man show. Bringing in Ben Kensell with his reputation for not caring who he does sponsorship deals with (one reason for his exit from Norwich) shows Gordon cares more about money than the clubs identity or "brand" - the Sportemon Go deal was probably Kensell's doing and is not popular with Hibees I know. And pressuring the club to sell players, resulting in them disappearing from the first team randomly as happened with Doig is as Romanov as it gets, as is bringing in his son to consult at Hibs.

 

Should be fun times ahead made even more fun by the fact that it shows they learned nothing from what we went through with Romanov. And we at least got one stellar season with a title challenge, 2 cup wins, nearly broke our LC hoodoo and got a shot at the CL to offset the rest of it. Suspect last year's 3rd and abysmal cup final performance will be as good as it gets under Gordon.

What will needle them is they had defered wages, and discarded  the academy like an over heated spoon, so no conveyor belt of super stars like Riordan and O'Connor.  Mathie left with a cold turkey statement saying just pretty much thank you. Its going to be interesting to see how they rebuild the next squad without Cutting their own, and have to Deal in the Market place. They will ahve to Pull a "white rabbit" out the hat, to play "Itchycoo park".  You dont have to be 'snowblind' to see that,  They will be flying high again in no time!

Famous 1874

I have it on good authority that there was no concrete interest in Doig, Porteous and Nisbet over the summer despite Hibs’ attempts of whoring them out of the club. 

 

If I am not mistaken Hibs’ former head of communications who left towards the tail end of last season previously worked in certain media organisations in Scotland. Clearly a pattern there. I assume the new guy has similar connections. 

 

I actually think Nisbet is decent but he’s hardly scored a goal in 2021. Doig is also alright but was targeted in all games at Hampden last season, starting with our win over them.

 

I previously though that Porteous had the building blocks to be a decent centre back but after his showing in the derby I am beginning to think otherwise, 90 minutes of hoofing the ball to nobody plus he got away with numerous mistakes in the first half especially. 

 

As for Ron Gordon, Hibs are in the mud. He owns all their assets outright but seems to not want to really invest in the team. The McGrath attempt was clearly a rouse to sack Mathie. The deal was never ever going to happen with minutes to go in the window. But they have a new big screen!
