    He's done ok in a deeper midfield roll but always looking and wanting the baw along with a couple of lovely wee passes through the middle
    Got a feeling he was just finding his feet at the end of the first half so hoping he doesn't get subbed at HT

    Sub him now he needs a rest and that's the best for Hibs.
    Need Holland to win for a nice wee coupon return.

    Would be nice to see Paul Hanlon getting some game time.
    Main thing is though that he is now involved with the Scotland set-up and if his form continues as it has been with Hibs he will feature in the Euro campaign with whoever the new manager is going to be.

    Cumdog coming on about 90 minutes too late.

    Can't believe he replaced Berra with Mulgrew at HT, utterly pointless sub.

    The game has been properly turgid $#@!e.
    Seems like there's a hole in my dreams, or so it seems

    Quite an accolade to get MOM so well done Meatball.
    Disappointed Paul didn't feature. That clown Berra just fouls in the box every fcukin time, or clatters team mates. Paul Hanlon is so much better than that oaf, yet didn't feature. Go figure - as the youngsters might say.

    No way is Berra close to being an international calibre player. Hanlon is much more accomplished as a player, and is a more composed defender.

    So of course Malky replaces the useless Berra with Charlie Mulgrew, because, you know, he’s up for giving new players a chance...

    At least McGinn got the opportunity to show he should be a Scotland regular.

    A defender is never going to come on to change the game. It's more dead man's shoes.

    Neither team qualified for the competition, we've not got a manager.

    Can someone explain why this game ever went ahead?

    Although to be fair it was better than the NI game. If that's the Michael O'Neill standard I'm glad he never came to Hibs. I thought they were the away team to start with! 8,000 @ER would be a treat! Although most of us would be ripping our eyes out with a tepid pie.

    His second international man of the match award I think.

    Yip, 5 caps. Started twice. MOTM twice.

    Only started last night because Armstrong got injured. Expect him back on the bench next game...unless he signs for Celtc of course.

    I though Super John had a smashing second half last night, he looks a real fitba player. Even the shaggers of the sheep gave him warm applause when he was awarded MOM.

    The subs were pathetic.

    Watching Christie play for a team I support changed my mind on him a bit, he is no better than we have and could not replace Super John if he left us.

    On Norn Eyerlund regardless of Mikey O'Neill, Neil Lennon or Ivan Sproule, I just cannae support the North of Ireland, it feels to much like supporting the Gunts or Huns for me.

    It's starting to really show that Scotland's downward spiral is not due to lack of quality players. We may not be world beaters but if a solid team of our best available 11 is not put out then we are never going to go anywhere. Too many wasted opportunities by poor management decisions or their inflated egos.

    For me there has to be a change in the beaks that oversee our game before qualifications start for the Euros. We can't afford to let this slip any further and be fed every excuse there is that it is down to player quality or even now the latest one, size.

    Thankfully back to league business next week. GGTTH.

    I don't care about north or south Ireland, but I'm happy whenever Kyle Lafferty is losing football matches.

    Me too. He's rapidly climbing my 'all time' most hated players, I'd say he's close to top 10 now, which is quite impressive given the names already there.

    He's at the top for me. The irony is the player who was my most hated until last summer was Neil Lennon! Lafferty Hibs manager 2029?!

    I think you feel that way because he has access to social media. Imagine if John Brown, Gary McKay,Ian Ferguson,Peter Grant or Neil Lennon had twitter back when they were players?

    I though Super John had a smashing second half last night, he looks a real fitba player. Even the shaggers of the sheep gave him warm applause when he was awarded MOM.The subs were pathetic.Watching Christie play for a team I support changed my mind on him a bit, he is no better than we have and could not replace Super John if he left us.On Norn Eyerlund regardless of Mikey O'Neill, Neil Lennon or Ivan Sproule, I just cannae support the North of Ireland, it feels to much like supporting the Gunts or Huns for me.
    Totally different players and play in different positions. Christie would be a great addition to the squad. Give us a bit of craft in last third. Play wide and ad a number ten.Yeah subs were brutal. Game like that every player should get minimum 45 minutes. And name a smaller squad

    Is it possible to hate and despise?
    In Lafferty's case I suppose it probably is.

    SJM put in a decent shift last night however over the last 4-5 games it seems like he only comes alive in the 2nd half of the games.

    Tell you what though, I’ll be truly gutted when he moves on, when he is on top form he’s by far the best midfielder in Scotland imho

    I've noticed this myself mate and I could see it happening last night after roughly half an hour he seemed more confident and was demanding the baw and I just sensed that he was going to have a good second half, I think I said so on this thread at HT
    I would love SJM to sign a new deal so we can get something close to what he's worth when he does go but it doesn't look like it's going to happen sadly

    Sadly I think SJM will be away in January. Someone will stump up £4 million for him and he'll be off. Hope I'm wrong.

    I think SJM took a while to settle last night because when I got the first touch he expected to be blootered into orbit as he does in league games where the donkeys are out to stop him the only way they know how.

    Once he realised he'd have time on the ball he became more effective - well up until the time he was chopped!

    I reckon if we do get 4 million for him we have done well
    Sadly more often than not the actual transfer fee has nothing to do with the players true worth and down to what the said club need to take before running the risk of his contract running out and getting nout for him
    If SJM was playing in the English leagues or even sellick then you can almost guarantee he wouldn't leave them for any less than 5 million and that's with him heading into the last 18 months of a contract
    It would surely make good business sense for hibs to offer him top dollar and to avoid unrest in the changing room regarding wages a good signing on fee if that's actually possible for signing an extension
    Whatever happens let's all just enjoy watching the laddie playing for the hibees for the time being I no that's what I'm doing. He's easily the best midfielder we've had in the modern era and I rate him more than Collins and Brown who are the only two who have gotten close in my time that I can think of

    The last quality midfielders we sold on we Brown - 4 Million and Katy M8 - 2 Million. 10 years ago?

    The one that messed with me is the secrets around the Jason fee. Has Rod lost his poker face, does Leanne not have one....does George play a part? Is it Henry the Janitor?

    Who knows?

    When you see players like Oliver Burke being sold for £15 million, SJM is a bargain at £5 million. For me John is best Scottish central midfielder in the world. Might sound like a bit of a stretch, but there's not one Scottish player I'd drop him for off the top of my head.

    But we dont know. If he is no playing, he is no scoring. Still that's 50p in the bank for last nights couple of minutes.

    I agree bud the Cummings transfer fee caper still riles me up until then we almost always got top dollar and the tache was almost proud to let the media and fans how much we got etc
    I realise that there's nowhere near the money in Scottish fitbaw now as there alledgley was when we got the 4 mil for broon but according to the other erse cheek they haven't been so well off and making x amount from champions league blah blah but they no that clubs like us in Scotland are on the bones of our own erse and now try and steal players up here for pennies
    I would rather we kept SJM for the duration of his contract than part with him for anything less than 2 mill and a big selling on percentage but maybe that's me cutting off my nose to spite my face

    Thing with oliver burke mate is he was bought from the English championship then the bundesliga and they clubs are all awash with TV money etc and are able to get dosh way and above what the actual player is worth and don't rely on selling players to survive
    It's what's wrong with the game and does my nut in

    I assume the 2 million includes Liam Henderson, Christie and Sparky plus add ons, otherwise Thellick can $#@! off, John is the real deal.

    10 million if you want him for January English teams.......he is a twice MOM Scotland player, celebrate your wealth by coughing up or $#@! off and do you shopping at the gunts or huns. They are cheap.

    PS so is Dylan, sign him up Hibs and pay him accordingly.

    Correct mate they can GTF
    You only have to look at the 4.5 mil they paid for nitcham and there's another gadgey I can't remember his name they paid 3 for this year who can't even make the bench
    I wouldn't take both of them for SJM and I actually think the nitcham felly might have something about him but he's not a SJM
    The sad thing is that 2 mil is probably all we will get and it riles me

    - - - Updated - - -

    I should have actually have said rather than except a stupid 2 mil we should just keep him for the duration

    It used to be the rule that if you started the game without floodlights you would have to wait until the start of the second half to have them switched on [or during the break ready for the second half]. That may be the rule in which case it was merely a misjudgement of how dark it would get by half time.

    The problem we have is that John McGinn will only have a year left on his contract assuming he goes next summer. That will definitely have a detrimental effect on what transfer fee Hibs will collect.

    Why I think we are two months from him departing.

    I'd say we will get more for him now in Jan than we would have in the summer though....
