  1. Not worried whatsoever. It's so early into the season. Just remember St Johnstone fans wanted Davidson gone in October of last season. He went on to do the cup double with a 5th place finish. We are a good side and he deserves time.
  2. You missed the biggest telltale of the article. Hibs have no money. They are overspending which is why they were trying to offer players in exchange for Tait in what is described as a "ridiculous deal" by the Raith chairman. They have yet to cover their losses over the past 22 months and it will show in their annual accounts. They were banking on selling Doig, Nisbett, Porteous and potentially Boyle. None of which came to fruition. I'd be interested to know how they were planning to fund the McGrath deal. Remember they also spent 400k on Daniel McKay earlier in the window (they've spent 1.5 million in transfer fees alone over the past 14 months). I don't think Ron Gordon is another Romanov but I genuinely wonder how Hibs are funding all their transfer activity during a pandemic.
  3. Great result. Did not expect us to win tonight. Gilmour is some player. Another cap for Ferguson. Should increase his market value.
  4. He stood out against us in our recent League cup match with Raith Rovers. Arguably MOTM. 100k is a great deal. 19 and will only get better. I think Hibs have made some really strong signings this window along with retaining their star players however I actually think we've still had a stronger window. Time will tell.
  5. Nisbett only scored 14 goals in the league last season. Cosgrove had a better scoring rate. He hasn't performed terribly well since West Ham declared their interest in him back in January. Prior to signing a new deal with Hibs, I'm shocked no one made a 500k bid (from England) for Boyle considering how well he's been doing. Personally, I can't see Hibs receiving anywhere near the evaluation they had previously set for Doig, Nisbett and "Porto".
  6. I'm really surprised Hibs haven't sold any of Doig, Nisbett, Boyle or "Porto". Ron Gordon back in May revealed they were bleeding cash and needed to sell some of their assets to recover from the last 18 months. I'm wondering if they were banking on receiving big fees for these players and it never came to fruition. They also increased their wages this window and spent 400k on Daniel McKay. We sold Cosgrove, Wright, and McKenna in order to cover our losses and provided Glass the ability to make changes to the side this window.
  7. Ramsay is every bit as good as Paterson. We should be demanding the same figure they recieve for Paterson in the future.
  8. I think McGeouch and Kennedy will leave. Kennedy has clearly not impressed Glass. I like McGeouch but there must be a reason he has barely featured under both McInnes and Glass. Possibly due to his past injuries. If he's not going to feature going forward its best he finds a new club.
  9. I don't feel it was Dean Campbell's fault for the goal but rather the entire team.Campbell was ok yesterday and the criticism is unjust IMO. Ross County were poor but still managed to forge some of the best chances in the game. The team just looked shattered. Ojo really struggled as did Brown. Ramsay and Samuels really caught the eye. That was the best performance I've seen from Joe Lewis in sometime.
  10. Just compare our squads. Aside from Boyle, Nisbett and the much hyped Doig I'm not concerned by what Hibs are up to. I think the international break has come at the right time for us allowing the new players to settle, Glass to work with the team tactically and the players get a much needed rest. Controversial opinion but I'm actually glad we are no longer competing in Europe. We've played 2 games a week for the past 6 weeks. Its had a negative affect on our domestic form. It certainly played it roles in our loss to Raith and dropped points against Hearts and yesterday against Ross County. Hibs have already dropped points against Dundee and will against other teams this season. We just need to focus on ourselves. We are a good side and we'll bounce back. No need to wet the bed yet.
  11. Samual looks a very decent player. Looking forward to seeing more from him.
  12. If the rumours on Twitter are to be believed, Newcastle will loan Ferguson until the end of the season at which point they will pay 3 million plus add ons. Ferguson is clearly one of our better players however since Watford expressed their interest in him he's not been so great. I think it's best for all parties that he leaves before the window closes.
  13. Not overly concerned. Lots of bedwetting for no reason. We'll bounce back. New signings need time to adjust to the system Glass wishes to deploy. The international break has come at a good time. We are a good side just need time to settle and a break.
