Let's be real here. Hibs did not turn down massive offers for any of their players, there was no massive offers. It's unlikely there was any interest at all. They bummed up average players in an attempt to sell them and half wits here and elsewhere swallowed the s***e. AC Milan were monitoring Doig :phface:

Stole this thought I'd share here. 

Jack Ross walks into a bank to cash a cheque. As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning, Ms could you please cash this cheque for me?"

Cashier:"It would be my pleasure. Could you please show me your ID?"

Ross:"Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am Jack Ross, Manager of Hibernian ”.

Cashier: "Yes, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID."

Ross: Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am."

Cashier: "I am sorry, Mr Ross but these are the bank rules and I must follow them."

Ross,"Come on please, I am urging you, please cash this cheque."

Cashier: "Look sir, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his cheque."

"Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racket and made a fabulous shot where the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his cheque. So, sir, what can you do to prove that it is you and only you?"

Ross stands there thinking and thinking and finally says, "Honestly, my mind is a total blank...there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can't think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do. I don't have a clue."

Cashier: "Will that be large or small notes , Mr Ross?”

There's only one team in the capital that sells defenders to Italy. 

 

AC Milan🤣🤣🤣

 

It's funny when Celtic do it but Hibs trying to do the same is just confusing.

 

Can just imagine the Italians reading that. Ciao Fratello! What ees a heebs? It sounds like a sheet or sam kinda disease

Still reminds me of the time when they had Griffiths and Fenlon was managing. They had a decent record but it was because Thumb was carrying the team. As soon as he left, they got relegated. Boyle is doing it now—11 goals in all competitions (versus 16 for the rest of the team) is some serious dependency. We've relied on Boyce but that's nothing compared to them.

 

The rest of the squad is brutal. Porteous is one of the most violent players I've seen in a long time and is going to severely injure someone if the refs don't crack down harder. Nisbet, Magennis, and Doidge are bang-average for the SPFL. The rest are bottom-six caliber players.

 

If anything happens to Boyle, they will collapse.

So a very late challenge then!

I see in the BBC match report that this is Hibs worst run since Spring 2014.   Mmm, I wonder how that played out.

Celtic have done this in every game. 

Started fast, if they get the goals you are in the shit. 

However, if they don't you get chances v them, especially after 60 mins. 

 

They are now getting the goals where as earlier on they weren't and were even conceding. 

 

They have a distinct "blitz kreg" type tactic imo. 

 

 

 


They were scoring a lot more goals back in August. They’re now winning  games 2-0 or 2-1. Last night was the first time they’d scored 3 since September and that was only Raith Rovers. Actually think they’re going to win the league quite comfortably.

aye, but if they are 2/3 nil up they tend to back off a bit now.

 

game mgt.

 

Me too, think they will win do well, but if they don't put a team down before 60/70 mins they might have a problem, they visibly drop a level.

Love it, we should be miles ahead of them by now. 

Yeah we should be out of sight. Six points (at least) dropped because of stupid draws. We could have beaten them at Tynie too. To be fair, though, they have had a difficult October - Rangers, Aberdeen and Celtic - and were never likely to pick up much.

It was said by some on here at start of season that we had some way to go to catch up with Hibs, Aberdeen, St Johnstone.  How quickly things can change 🙂

At least they had a home game against Dutd too. Surely won that.

If they get pumped by Ross County I can see the first managerial dismissal of the season then the fun will really start.

What's the deal with the blatantly fudged attendance figures? Why are they bothering?

There’s been a few comments on this. Apart from gaps in the stands, what evidence do we have that they’re being “creative” around their attendance figures?

As you say though, why bother? 🤔

Kevin Nisbet is average at best, personally I've never seen anything in him, that he made the Euro 2020 squad is more a sad commentary on Scotland's lack of forwards than anything else.

 

A £250,000 player at absolute best.

Hanlon being quoted in the Record that the handbags were out in the hibs dressing room after the celtic game.

 

Nothing like a bit of Hibs infighting to brighten up a wet Friday.

Given our present lack of cutting-edge up front, don’t you think Nisbet would help improve us in that department?

They won't have the money to pay him off so we are in for lots of fun until at least the end of the season.

It's ****ing excellent.  Just over a year ago they sat and laughed at us after voting to put us down and now back in their place.   

The brilliant thing is that they will never have the resources to keep up with us now.  

Karma is beautiful

It’s difficult to see what his streng to s are but certainly worth a wee punt of, say, £400k?

Given he has scored 5 league goals this entire year and we have TWO centre halfs with as many as him this season, I’d have to say . . . naw.

🤣 I suppose when you put it like that…but focussing on that stat alone doesn’t begin to describe Nisbet’s overall abilities.

As we’ve been gleefully discussing, Hibs have been on a poor run of late. That points to a lack of chances being created and goes a way toward explaining his lack of goals.

 I still think Nisbet would enhance this Hearts team but I suppose we’ll just have to disagree on that one.

Thing with Nisbet is he is a good finisher.

 

But there is very, very little more to his game. Yeah in a team who create lots of chances without their cf needing to join in, thats fine.  But thats a dying art, that type of football and a rare luxury.

 

Goals can mask other failings but if they dry up for ANY reason, you're left with nowt.

 

Our own Boycie contributes way more than just goals

Nisbet works better with Doidge.

 

But when Doidge comes back Boyle is less dangerous.

He probably would as long as he could be bothered which seems to be the problem that Hibs have with him.

I think “Big O” makes a good point about Nisbet being a good finisher.

That’s something I feel we currently lack. 🤨

Despite Hibs being dreadful the media will still wax lyrical about the apparently great football they play (as well as their big screens). Always staggers me that they don't seem to realise that they play hoofball, not Brazil-esqe silky football.
