    The money he's spending for the stadium and training facilities etc. Eye watering to me.Agree about only ever really being able to progress in a time without him in charge, we need someone willing to be involved in the football business.
    He didnt spend his money. He's owned us for close to 30 years it's hardly been a massive success story.

    I'm grateful for everything Sir Tom has done for the club, but we'll never move forward as long as he's the owner. There's a ceiling that just won't be breached in terms of finance. We need more of a speculate to accumulate mentality, but unfortunately have the opposite. Aberdeen have done this of late and it's worked. They however have an owner that's willing to push the boat out and invest from his own pocket.
    Agree with that, but we’re 4th in the league having a great season, but you always have to look forward to what’s happening with your competitors, investment etc I’d hate us to go backwards next year, after 2 years of progression

    I meant Aberdeen's owner in the first part. Could have made it clearer in fairness.

    I did say it's not been successful, but we have grown as a club, too young to have any chance of memory about it, but we had nothing when he took over.
    Now we own everything we have (AFAIK) and we've alot more than most.

    Fake news. Debt peaked at £19m that wasn't due to McLeish. During Farmers ownership he has charged us interest for loans.
    Fake news.

    Building a top class stadium wasn’t a mistake.

    Believing Judas was.

    Don't agree. McLeish built a great team with quality of players we will probably never see again. So it's McLeish fault we had high debt but now it's the cost if rebuilding ER.

    It's a bit of both. Judas had players in on massive wages and that new East Stand didn't build itself.

    I wonder if when the windae slams shut there will be the likes of a Tony, Liam Fontaine or big Dave etc, jettisoned by their club if some reports are to be believed, but higher up the food chain in the positions we're looking for? Hmmm I doubt it too.

    I feel we're clutching at straws.

    I also think it's particularly unfunny that the marque signings by both us and the gunts appear to have spectacularly hit the skids. A poor reflection on Edinburgh football.

    @NW Any thoughts on what the position of our club would have been if Buy Hibs had been successful a few years ago? Football, financial and otherwise. Your reply might be better as a thread of its own detailing out how things might have been different. It could be a very interesting debate. We'll need you to lead.

    Judas let everyone down. He persuaded Hibs to agree the cash then he $#@!ed off. Fact.
    The stadium was built at a very good time investment wise. Bargain.
    Fact.

    You obviously don’t like Farmer and will not accept a good word in his favour.
    I feel the same way about Judas.

    Which one of them would I trust?

    No brainer.

    Petrie said Fletcher sale Would pay for east. We ended up taking out loan to help fund it. We had best part if £20m player sales. Need to check my records but I think £10m for butterfly. Which farmer had to direct some of that to repay debt racked up by 100 rod Petrie screw ups

    McLeish did not let me down. So not a fact. Your other facts aren't facts. Got a great deal on the east after world wide crash. Stands behind the goals spirled out of control when farmer took personal control. Which is poor corporate governance when he's not on the board but the board were lumbered by the debt he racked up.

    It’s too late in the window to make all those moving parts work, keeping McGinn is more important than signing anyone right now.

    And you think we do? With respect, bud, your crystal ball's track record does not exactly inspire confidence.

    And as some have alluded to - are you really grasping that it's now Monday night? If McGinn is sold at any time between now and 12 midnight on Wednesday, are you seriously suggesting that Hibs are all ready to swoop and confirm deals for three players of the "better quality" you keep banging on about?

    I'll have some of what you're smoking, man
    Get busy livin', or get busy dyin'...

    Aye ok then.

    I’ll leave it there.
    Even if you seem to be agreeing that we got a great deal on the East.

    You are convinced that Farmer is a crook and I’m not.
    We’re never gonna agree so I won’t bang on any more.


    Judas built a decent team because the Board gave him the money. On the one hand you praise him for that, but you accuse the same board of profligacy. Just seems a bit inconsistent.

    But then again so am I so won’t moan about it.

    If you breakdown the fee received for Whatshisname to celtc you'll see all of it went on players.

    We got Liam H on loan, we got Dylan at an undisclosed fee thought to be around £300k, I'm sure it covered SJMs fee. That alone was some fecking wheeling and dealing! I think we also paid a nominal fee for Insall. There may have been someone else.

    Related thought: how easy is it to chuck in some bonuses (for hibs) if a player moves for big money From his next club? I have this feeling that SJM might go to somewhere like Cardiff and then suddenly become very hot property if they're promoted. The market is so dodgy - if you suddenly look good in the EPL your value multiplies by about 1000 per cent. And it would be nice to have some of that.
    so what do I know

    Should be a sell on clause of around 10 per cent maybe more, but then St Mirren get a chunk of whatever he goes for.

    Thats interesting, I suppose these things become standardised over time. For some reason I just have this feeling with McGinn that there might be a really chunky transfer at some point.

    Do St M get a bit of the subsequent sell on as well? (i.e. the (say) Cardiff to Man U one?)
    so what do I know

    Think it would depend on the agreement. I'd assume that if they're to get a percentage of our profit from his transfer it would include all future fees to us.

    If this isn't included, then they're still guaranteed around 2 to 4 percent of any fee because they developed him. The more clubs he plays for the smaller that percentage gets, that'll include us.

    Its to help small clubs that develop players that get 3 or 4 transfers.

    Related thought: how easy is it to chuck in some bonuses (for hibs) if a player moves for big money From his next club? I have this feeling that SJM might go to somewhere like Cardiff and then suddenly become very hot property if they're promoted. The market is so dodgy - if you suddenly look good in the EPL your value multiplies by about 1000 per cent. And it would be nice to have some of that.
    As I understand it, from the Sol Bamba transfer.

    We were due Dunfermline a slice of what we got but as far as I'm aware no more after that.

    We received more than the original transfer fee when he moved on again but no more after that.

    £500k a year to STF is peanuts, does he really need it. He’s worth over £100million. Maybe it’s just the way he operates, and the principles he stands by, debts must be paid
    You're kidding, right? Tommy Farmer is tighter than two coats of paint, which is no bad thing in business.I could certainly learn from it. In November I was getting off a train in Glasgow, spied STF bolting with the hoardes to get a good seat for the return to Edina. I know a few folk with the same type of money Farmer has, trust me to each and every one of them, £500K is a significant slice of wonga.

    Petrie said Fletcher sale Would pay for east. We ended up taking out loan to help fund it. We had best part if £20m player sales. Need to check my records but I think £10m for butterfly. Which farmer had to direct some of that to repay debt racked up by 100 rod Petrie screw ups

    - - - Updated - - -

    McLeish did not let me down. So not a fact. Your other facts aren't facts. Got a great deal on the east after world wide crash. Stands behind the goals spirled out of control when farmer took personal control. Which is poor corporate governance when he's not on the board but the board were lumbered by the debt he racked up.
    Couple of points of order:

    Hibs never owned the Butterfly. STF wanted to buy it and potentially build a training centre/community foundation using that land and the land we did actually own and sell behind the east. The decision to sell that parcel of land only went ahead once it become almost useless to Hibs. Too small for anything of consequence. The (jambo) council screwed STF over regarding the butterfly, it was pretty well reported.

    McLeish didn't let you down? I doubt that very much. you weren't let down by his skullduggery involving Rangers? I reckon you'll be the only Hibby to think that.

    Not according to the website I looked at. Anyways 11pm or 12 midnight - who's playing at that time of night? My point still stands.

    Hibs Twitter account might update along the lines of:

    74th Minute Rod Petrie intercepts club telephone from Leeann Dempster.

    77th Minute Neil Lennon refuses the instruction to substitute John McGinn unless club chairman texts assurances on club targets.

    Can Hibs conduct a proper medical at Easter Road? If not, the club doctor would need to race back after the match to Ormiston to carry out a medical.

    To be fair it is a valid point. I don’t imagine anyone new would appear on the scene at that point, but the couple of hours after the match could well be used to finalise paperwork for any deals.

    What with all the crocks we seem to sign I wonder if the doctor can even perform a fitness test and medical properly.

    He didnt spend his money. He's owned us for close to 30 years it's hardly been a massive success story.
    Not being owned by the gunts is a massive success story, which was the only other option. Winning the cup , after many had tried , plus two league cups , and a few finals . We have done as well as any other apart from the bigot brothers, in the 30 years. As is having a stadium which shouldn't need too much spent on it in the foreseeable future.
    I remember when Sir Tom stepped up to save us, he was the only show in town. He declared then he would rather not invest and he stated he wouldn't be some cash cow for Hibs . He was a hero , make no mistake. I'm sure the door has always been open for a serious invester to step forward and throw some cash at us . Nobody took him on then , and as far as I'm aware , nobody has since .
    Admittedly I don't know, but I would be surprised if STF has made money from Hibs. Apart from players and the Smellies, I don't think anybody in Scottish football has made money recently.

    If we sold Mcginn for 2.5m plus and got Mallan in on a permanent for a few hundred k, I'd be pretty happy with that.

    I know. If it's true, now reading him big Davey and fontaine if find new clubs so who knows what next 24 hrs will bring.

    Who would have thought he wouldn't last a full season. Sad thing is it doesn't seem like a big loss this time, what shouldve been.

    No bids for McGinn to date so would need to be done and dusted in 24 hours. We'd also need to pull something out the bag to get Mallan for that fee when he's playing every week in the championship now and would smash our wage structure even if he was to consider a move.

    Delighted Stokes is away before any more damage done. I hope we still have another one or two arrivals potentially from that wage.

    Force Big Dave out the door as well with a wee incentiviser to get him to head off to Belarus, Romania or wherever he can get another contract.

    Fonts can chill for the last 4 months and provide bench cover when required - good pro, cup winning legend.

    Gutted about Stokes but fair play to Lennon on dealing with it. Would love to know why it’s come to this maybe our fans reps can find out and tell us why or am I just being silly!

    Should't say it really as it's pure speculation and I certainly have no knowledge but my gnawing feeling is that there was a little bit more than words exchanged between Stokes and Lennon after events.

    Real, real shame. Had such a great chance to cement his legacy and finish his career somewhere he was loved.

    Seems he is just an irredeemable ned, though.

    I don't take any pleasure at all in him leaving and I'm really sorry it has come to this but I don't see there being any alternative.

    He has to go. The club is more important than any player and he has likely made his position untenable.

    His departure from Hibs was inevitable, but I am feeling sad tonight hearing this news. This man produced the performance of a lifetime when we needed it the most on 21 May 2016. An individual performance which will go down in Hibernian history. He achieved legendary status that day along with all of his team mates, but Stokes was the one who ripped the Rangers apart and that is what won the cup for us. He has also scored 11 goals this season and I don't care what anyone says he has done well for us this season...in fact him and Ambrose have been the only real successes so far from last summers transfer window. I was delighted when he signed a permanent deal last summer and IMO this is a huge loss to the team and will have a detrimental effect on our chances of a top four finish. We certainly won't be able to replace that sort of quality.

    He had to go however given his behaviour. He is clearly an unstable guy who can't handle fame or alchohol. He had the talent to play at the highest level and he has wasted it. I hope he can salvage what's left of his career but I fear for him.

    Anyway thanks for the goals Anthony, and above all thanks for that performance and those two goals that wonderful afternoon at Hampden. You are a Hibs legend forever. Stokesy's on fire....

    In retrospect we shouldn’t have brought him back this time, but I know why Neil Lennon & the Hibs board did.

    It’s a shame it’s come to this, but it won’t ever dimish his performance on 21.05.16
    We wanna be free, we wanna be free to do what we wanna do, and we wanna get loaded, and we wanna have a good time... That's what we're gonna do
