Saying theres nae money available until some leave. I take it Ron’s blown his tank on buying the club and has nae money for players? Was there no supposed tae be an announcement, about where the clubs heading, about now?

We blew a ridiculous amount during the summer on utter dross. This is the result.

I'll be patient.

We did blow a huge amount on dross in the summer...But.

Record season tickets.
McGinn money
McGinn promotion clause

Think he is bluffing.

Suppose it doesnt help that we didnt bother with a shirt sponsor though

Player's need to leave before we can bring folk in. I'm only expecting 1 or 2 in tbh.

We won’t run with a bigger squad than 23 senior players. There’s no point - you can only play 11 at a time, so paying people not to play isn’t going to happen.

I think we need a minimum two new faces in with a defensive mid a priority? The defense itself needs overhauled but that can wait until the summer. The players that can go have been well covered before, but take your pick from about 10 including most of Hecky's summer shopping list.

I reckon it's going to take about 18 months to repair the damage done in the last window. A criminal waste of money.

The Jan window is only ever really about loans or short term deals so it wont be til this Summer we can start to look at rebuilding properly. Being optimistic I hope we manage to fill the defensive midfield hole and get a proper goalscorer in..that would be a good start. We can then address our ageing defence in the Summer.

Up to a point JR is correct in what he is saying but as always omission is better than actual truth as what JR is conveniently forgetting to say or of course just wont be able to say is that when Ron bought the club back in the autumn we were told that he was injecting £1.5m in the way of working capital hence it wouldn't be unreasonable to suggest that at least a portion of that should go on the playing squad.

It doesn't need to go directly on players but at least some could be used as GTF payments for certain players who will be going nowhere until they get 'incentive's' to leave and in that way you free up some space.

Its not hard to pick 3 Hibs players who arrived in the summer on 3 year contracts who are just going to sit and sit until their agents get them similar deals back in England or Hibs 'help' them out the door which is no easy task in the January window and only marginally easier in the summer.

I think its fair criticism of Ron in that within a few months he has lost all the 'feel good' factor of the takeover, he hasn't communicated at all well and has allowed an vacuum of uncertainty and drift to develop not helped by a Chief Executive who seems to have lost her earlier drive and determination.

The 'Pudding' had to go and while Hibs have never been a particularly ambitious club you should still have a responsibility to back and support the new incumbent and at least show a modicum of desire and ambition and so far this has just not happened.

I think it's maybe a bit unfair to criticise LD at the moment. She will be working under the direction of the major shareholder so maybe her hands, as well as her tongue, are tied until The Announcement by him at the AGM.

We will have had to pay off Heckingbottom and Stockdale...that will have cost a few bob.
Hibs had three managers in 2019....therein lies the cause of our current squad problems and the ridiculous imbalance the manager has to deal with. Ross will need a couple of summer windows to get to where we all want our club to be.
He must be given this time. With the proviso that we can see steady improvement...which I would suggest we have seen since he took over.
He has inherited the three previous managers players. All he can do is get the best out of what he has and try to get results. We have had some great wins since he arrived mixed with some depressing losses. That's standard fare for a team onto their third manager in a calendar year and who finished mid-table last season. Give him time and backing. January is unfortunately only a squad sticking plaster time.
A couple of much needed defensive midfielders in on loan, and possibly a central defender if Jackson goes. Bogdan on a permanent deal and hopefully we will see the emergence of Jamie Gullan. Which brings me onto another thing which I mentioned in a long winded post a few weeks ago. It is essential we get more of our development players into the first team starting from summer 2020. Playing young players mixed in with three or four proven quality signings per summer window that are actually an improvement on what we had. That is the only way forward for Hibs now as far as I am concerned.

I wouldn’t mind so much, apart from the fact Ron coming in and spraffing about challenging for the league and Europe. He’s either a Walter Mitty and thinks you can do it on a shoe string, or a complete bull shit artist. We need to be competing with The Sheep at the minimum to be up there.

Exactly, so what was with his statement if the club needs something funds will be there, also didn’t Mathie say in his interview that a Jack would have funds available to him in January, it also pisses me off we cannot compete with the likes of The Sheep financially.

The Sheep are far better than Dempster and co regarding commercial money so I gather that's where the extra funds come from , not this secret American provider folk keep coming up with who is bank rolling them.
There was one guy a few years back who gave them dosh .
The club are failing regarding bringing extra funds in .

They frequently benefit from cash injections from external benefactors, it’s on their annual accounts every year.

However you are correct that they are better at generating revenue that Hibs, we are poor commercially right now and are nowhere near maximising the commercial potential the club has. There are so many sources of income that a club the size of Hibs could utilise, especially considering we are based in the capital.

You would think as he involved in media and marketing AND helps struggling businesses turn around that he knows exact how to market and turn around a quite inept commercial dept. But the way his first few months have started im not holding my breath. He seriously needs to open up to fans and show us he means business
