And Boyle and/or Nisbet oot the door, you have to wonder??

 

If they sell Boyle, they're goosed imo.


Like you say no way they are paying that kind of money for a striker and he’s not a starter so Boyle or nisbet are being sold if not both

They'll get a decent wee wedge for both by Scottish standards - but two things.  You don't want to lose players who are tried and tested and doing well (same goes for us with Soapy, Halks and Kingsley) as no matter how good your recruitment is, it isn't guaranteed (and theirs is shite!!!).

 

Secondly, how much of any transfer fee simply makes its way to wee Ron and his family?  Hefty chunk you'd think.

Nisbet has been crap for months now but I’d still be delighted if they sold him and Boyle as like you said they know this league and as much as I know nothing about the new guys hibs are bringing in I find it hard to believe they are better than nisbet or Boyle so it weakens hibs in my eye so all good

Yeah on the flipside of what I said, if they were offered anywhere near say £2M for Nisbet, they'd be mental not to cash in.  The only reason they wouldn't take less would be cos they themselves have valued him higher.

 

I know that Ross told the club quite some time back (maybe last Jan) that he was happy enough for them to sell Porteous, Doig and Nisbett as all were "very replaceable".  True story!

Nisbet is bang average and that’s being kind. If Hibs get anything like seven figures for him then they have won a watch and it’s brilliant business

Looks like the Dens owners are unhappy with Leigh Griffiths performances.   Could terminate his loan.   No mention of the manager getting sacked yet.   They will be after another striker no doubt.

Too true. File Nisbet alongside Shankland - good in the Scottish Championship, crap everywhere else. Any club spending seven figures on him is wasting a lot of cash.

Liverpool full-back Tony Gallacher joins St Johnstone on permanent deal https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/59868631

 

Was getting linked with a lot of big clubs when he was 17 (including Barcelona.) So had a lot of promise. Think he could be a decent signing for St Johnstone but needs to play.

Every time I see him I just think how feeble he is, really.  So easily bullied out of a game.  Goes missing at the drop of a hat.

 

To his credit, he's a very good finisher.  Hs goal record in the last year would suggest he's been poor at getting himself in to positions though.  You wonder if he's got attitude problems, in all honesty. Would be the norm for a Hibs player, I guess!

Excellent cone positioning is what I've heard. 

…if they run out of cones, I’ve heard he just puts on his hi-viz jacket to make the numbers up.

The development and recruitment of players is considered key to the partnership, with both clubs said to share similar visions.

Similar partnerships are already in place at two other Scottish Premiership clubs, with Aberdeen working closely with Atlanta United and Hibs with Brighton.

Tony Asghar, United's sporting director, said: "It is great to finally announce our collaboration agreement with Fulham FC.

"Having met with a number of the club’s directors, senior management and the football department on a number of occasions, it was clear that both clubs share similar long-term objectives and understand that innovative working practices are key to creating competitive advantages within our respective leagues.

Yup, so similar to the Hibs relationship with Brighton, should we now be expecting to get a cracking loanee from Fulham?

😀    I don't think much has transferred either way from hibs <>Brighton or Atlanta<>Aberdeen.   

 

This Fulham deal seems to be possibly vague at the moment whether they are talking about academy under 16 or all ages. 

 

Yeah if we want a Fulham player on loan I don't think it would be a problem.   So long as we can afford it.   Perhaps in the affordability aspect Dundee Utd might be granted a discount.

I think more than it normally would too as with the Gov loans they cant pay themselves bonuses I believe…..

Id be happy for them to keep Nisbet as their focal point for the rest of his career. Watched a lot of Hibs this season and he’s been ****ing awful

Dunno if they're goosed, but they'll need to change the way they play which will be a shock to them. 

 

The  well known Brazilian tradition of  punting the ball as high and long as possible for a diving shite to chase will need to be revised. 

 

Maybe Nisbet can be Lukaku and the new Norwegian the new  K Debryne (sp) so the Belgian way should be easy to replicate down in leef.

Still dont understand why they gave him a years contract in the summer. They are not getting money from anyone, he was not going to play.

Yep, just hope he plays.  Is Coleman still their first choice?  Must be about 58!

Yeh Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny are the two senior right backs, both out of contract in the summer. Coleman only 33 ( i thought he was older) seems to have been around for ever.

Also file under Keith Wright and Jason Cummings. Nisbet has the feel of a player like those two and Shankland who stood out at a lower level but, aside from brief flashes, can't sustain those performances at a higher level. No wonder Hibs were trying to cash in on his one good season. If he was 21 you'd say he's a good prospect but he's 24. If he wasn't in the Scotland squad due to our lack of strikers he'd be getting no attention at all.

It’s clear to me.  New one year contract. Punted to Dundee for that year so Dundee get a player they couldn’t afford to pay a full wage to.  Final instalment in kind to Dundee for “past favours” carried out.

I think they re-signed him to use him in a swap deal/makeweight in the same summer window(eg as part of the deal for when Nisbet was decent) but then his texts to that girl came out. I don't think Celtic could have believed their luck when Dundee said they would still take him...

Decent amount of cash into Sevco these last few months with the Patterson transfer and Gerrard and co compensation. I presume that will cover this season’s operating losses.

Not sure they will get the 10m up front in a oner when nobody else wanted Patterson at that price, unless Everton are a registered zombie hun charity. Big Mike will have most of it ringfenced anyway.

Reported £16m deal, with 11 up front according to Sky news.

 

So they've paid 10 Aaron Hickeys

That really boils ma pish

I'd wager he'll struggle to get into Aberdeen's midfield and won't be there for the start of the 23/24 season.

Sounds like Aberdeen will lose Ryan Hedges as well who's one of their best players. Arguably weaker if McGrath replaces him.
