I dont really see us playing with wingers tbh, I'd be surprised if we brought one in.

Not wingers, but based on what we saw against Dundee United I think we’ll play with a front three. The wider two will be narrow and closer to the centre forward, not like traditional wingers. I don’t think it’ll be rigid positions though.

I expect the real width will come from the wing backs.

Yeah, I see them as quite a tight triangle, but more of a 2 forwards and an attacking midfielder than a couple wide players and a forward.
The width will definitely come from the wingbacks though.

I do like the range of options we have though, players that are comfortable all over the front line should make for a dynamic playing style.

You can add Joel Valencia of Brentford to the rumours list.

We have 3 goalkeepers already...

There’s always room to upgrade on what we have and move a player out, that’s true of any position during the transfer window.

Mitchell is here as a third choice so don’t imagine he’d go anywhere, so if there was a new signing it would either be Macey or Dabrowski to leave.

Mitchell is here as 3rd choice as you say
Dabrowski has done nothing wrong, did well on loan and i would like him to get a chance for Hibs against Cove in the cup
Macey - Rocky was a hard act to follow but I think he has done fine apart from the kicking which isn't a deal breaker meantime.

I think all 3 are out of contract at the end of next season so we have 18 months to decide who's staying and who's going.
I can't see it being a priority for Maloney at the moment. He might feel different after assessing all 3 over the next 4 months though.

Agree it’s not a priority position this window, but I still think if there’s a good option out there it was silly for the club to pass it up.

I don't suppose clubs ever stop looking for players better than the ones they have in all positions.
Obviously all ambition to sign up better players is tempered by transfer fees and wages.
Only Macey of the goalkeepers will be on a good wage so we are not burning unnecessary cash on the position at the moment.

Another player with a history of injuries. Interestingly a winger.
Wiki says he was criticised at Brentford for finding the game too fast for him,so that's a no from me.

Dundee got any money?
I don't think there's any players I'd take to cover any of them.
McMullan looks an okay player, but not a Hibs player.

I'd keep Doidge, can't see Daz leaving and I think it would benefit Scott leaving if he wants game time.
