    There's something about Marvin...

    He's upped his game this season. All the trademark defensive stuff is still there but in the last few games we've witnessed a big improvement in his willingness to turn defence into attack more quickly. Even playing a bit more football.

    Similarly you can see (if it were possible) he is fitter. He worked with a personal trainer in the summer to prepare for the new season and it shows.

    He looks hungry for the new challenge and it's a joy...

    Today was the best I had seen him play for Hibs.

    Marv is going to be a huge player for us this season I reckon, especially away from home. He's been excellent whenever I've seen him in pre-season/the League Cup and does look fitter/leaner, as do a few other members of the squad to be fair.
    Seems like there's a hole in my dreams, or so it seems

    Good to hear. Marvin Bartley will be a huge player for us this season in that defensive midfield role.
    The reality is that all the players are going to have to up their games for the challenge ahead in the top league.

    ive always loved Marv. He gets stuck in , loves a battle , does the job not many players in the modern game are willing to do . One of our most important players for me. I've never seen him being bullied or lose a battle , he is the type of guy players love having in their team. I'd extend his contract, someone will eventually notice his worth and come in for him.

    Huge fan of Marv. Never backs down from a challenge and hard but fair. Would love to see him have got stuck in to the likes of Black

    The thing about Bartley, is he's not a dirty player in any respect, doesn't go about clugging players. Just a big hardworking guy who gives 100%, and uses his strength to his advantage
