So that’s how many players now ?? 🤣🤣. The diving wig will cost them. 
At least he’s not playing tomorrow in the respect that he is one player we don’t have to worry about cheating.

Or aren’t receiving the balance,  believe is now common practice for fees to be paid over the life of the contract.  Either way this will cost Hibs a fair wedge and he’ll surely be on a top weekly wage from them now too.   Be interesting to see how he does but Hibs do put him on a pedestal and forget the runs he has when nothing much was happening beyond the odd dive here and there.

For this season i rekon its a good signing for them.   But im going to take a wild guess and rekon he will take the 10k per week the american lad was on last season on a 3 or 4 year contract.  In that case it wont be a good long term investment, similar to us with berra/naismith type signings.

Good bit of business for them. Silly to say otherwise. Let’s not pretend he’ll go back in and make them world beaters though. He was part of the hilariously shit Hibs team that got Jack Ross sacked last season. 
 

Good player. Not the Messiah

That's Gordon got the fans on his side for good now. He could rip the club apart bit by bit and they would still lick his boots clean after this. 

 

I wonder how Johnson feels having another player forced on him. 

 

In a footballing sense, it's a good signing for them though.

Exactly this. Not worth wetting the pants over..

Signing a player, in his 30th year, whose main attribute is pace, on a 3 to 4 year contract, on big money, doesn't strike me as a particularly sensible investment.

 

He's a good player, but not particularly worth worrying about.

Doesn’t seem like a Johnson signing to me. He’s made noises on that front in his interview albeit tongue in cheek with his comments about Messi, maybe as an out loud dig, who knows. 
 

Big money, will only get slower, presumably more injury prone. Bring him back. **** them.

Anyone confirm if he’s allowed to play tomorrow 

Doesn't look like it. Bringing him out before the game starts to unveil him according the BBC

Think the bbc link said he'd be paraded but not in the squad. 

 

Bizarre transfer in the first place, the wig was talking about coming home before he'd even left Scotland.

He'll be half decent til November. VAR kills his game

Was thinking this when first heard he was coming back.

Has something in common with most vermin “legends”, Riordan, Murray, Griffiths, Hanlon etc in that, more often than not makes zero difference in a derby.

BBC quoting that Hibs put a buy back clause in his transfer contract. It was more likely the Saudi’s that put in the clause as it was a risk to them as not all Western footballers can settle a very rigid country regarding laws etc. They don’t throw money away. Hibs will have to cough up millions for this transfer. Looks like another Hibsd It.

More like an escape clause, where the Saudi’s no longer pay the balance owed (2 million plus) and Hibs get him back.

Could be. Either way it’s hit Ron the Con’s pocket and Hibs budget.

For a Hibs player, exceptional

Were those two goals in Stendal’s first derby at Tynecastle? We shot ourselves in foot that game?

One devlin/haring/halkett tackle away from an injury affecting his pace. He'll score goals but is coming down from his peak.

 

A signing to make the fans happy.

Not point kidding on otherwise.

 

No superstar but good signing 

He'll have the place jumping tomorrow when they wheel him out before kick off. We'll have to be at it from the whistle because they will be.

What a shitty wee club the hobos are. They've got so many players on their books and they've decided to add another, one that they can't even afford. The interview says that they've had to contact the owner and it's a significant sum. So they're spending a fortune on a bunch of nobodies and pinning all their hopes on one player on a gigantic wage.

I hope he comes back and picks up a cruciate injury.

Doubt very much if they have forked out millions for Boyle…..more likely they sold him on an instalment basis and probably agreed to cancel any remaining payments in exchange for his return, and possibly a token fee.

If we had gone and paid a million pounds for him would you have been happy? Whether they have paid it or agreed to forgo future payments doesn't really matter. It is the equivalent of paying that fee.

Yeah

 

But wait till VAR severely reduces his impact.

At his age, he's more likely to be one hamstring injury away from losing most of his pace, and what's he got bar pace......nothing.

So if the fee was £3m and they have had one instalment of say £1m they have in effect paid £2m for him.

 

Utter stupidity for a player that clearly doesn’t give a **** about them and walked away for money paid by bigots/misogynists and when Hibs arguably needed him more than ever.

 

His morals are ****ed.

 

Hibs budget is ****ed.

 

Ron’s profit is ****ed.

A Hibee told me they hadn’t received a penny for him yet and as the team were relegated they wanted rid.
