Mark McNulty signs on loan

Power

Boy on .net reckons the McNulty deal is off.

Not often I get something that's more than hearsay but I do - Reading are pricing Hibs out of a permanent move - if McNulty doesn't move permanently elsewhere to any other suitors a loan could maybe be revived (they really want him shifted).

1m was said (Reading recouping money) and given his record, background and current position I don't think he is worth that (it is the English market though).

Don't know what Hibs have offered with first two bids - third one incoming though.

I would think after 2 bids failed hibs will know how much they want if it's a million we will surely move to another potential target.
I wouldn't like to think we haven't got other options.

They won't be derisory bids I'm sure, more to keep one on the table and moving the figure north. Depends on how desperate Reading are to shift him and the player preference - as we both know Hibs won't go anywhere near 1million - even half of that would be one of Hibs biggest transfer fee's paid in their history.

Reading spent over £1m for him in the summer, so they’ll want to recover as much of that as possible. If Hibs are serious about buying him, we’d have to be spending somerwhere around the £500K mark surely? Plus a substantial contract along with it.

While I’m happy to see us being so ambitious, it seems strange to make such a move given the situation with our head coach.

True - the way we're modelled now is the head coach has an input into player identification, along with George Craig and Graeme Mathie plus others, and not full ownership in the past.

I've no doubt the Lennon saga will have slowed signing completions - unsettling for sure.

If we don't strengthen.......... there's going to be a meltdown.
McNulty (guessing here) is probably our marquee signing, with possibly a couple of loan deals being discussed too. If we end up with no 'obvious' quality being signed then the pitchforks and torches will be out - and understandably so.

It will be very difficult for all Hibs fans, and almost impossible to bear for roaster board apologists who masquerade as Hibs fans.

Tbh theres no excuses not to have more signings we all know there needed , just have to wait and see what happens.
Regarding board apologists anyone who thinks it's fine to go with we have got obviously hasn't got a clue.

The most disappointing thing will be what we pay out on compensation to the current management and potentially bringing in a replacement against what could have been spent on players in the summer, such as Scott Allan. Would we be in this position now?

And of course the feel good factor bringing increased ST's etc etc. Starting to feel 1 step forward 2 steps back.

McNulty & Allan would certainly help maintain ST numbers, especially if we have as strong a second half of the season as last year. Big ask though.

Just takes results against few teams above to.pull us back into.a position to still be in with a sniff of saving face. As it stands a couple more bad results for us with other results going against us and season could be a write off by March.

Very true. There’s always the cup as well...

As usual we leave our business to the very end. We are short at least 3-4 players, especially if Maclaren is leaving. No chance we'll get what we actually need. McNulty and Allan if we are lucky, still well short IMO.

“hibs are still way under the valuation”.

Hoping we’ll get him - sounds like a loan is a no go for Reading.

3 year deal if it gets done tomorrow.
