First of all, can I just say that like every other Hibs fan I would be delighted if we got Martin Boyle back. It has became apparent now to everyone that he was so important to our team as an attacking force, and we have suffered badly in that respect since he left. He was a huge miss after his exit in January and no serious attempt was made by the club to replace him hence our results suffered accordingly.
But we desperately need another central defender as a priority IMO....and for me a proven goalscorer. If (and I hope it happens obviously) Boyle returns, I very much hope that is not the end of our business and at least another central defender is brought in.
However, this summer we signed two wingers and hopefully soon a third. And we've got Cadden & Mitchell.I dinnae entirely agree on another striker tbh. We have Youan, Melkerson, Doidge and Nisbet. We lack wingers and with McGeady out we desperately need someone in. Agree we need another CB preferably a left sided one.
Reckon Hibs see Magennis as that player and so are reluctant to sign another. But as he is coming up for a year on the sidelines they really should be
I think JDH is a bit part player already. No room for him in the starting 11.I totally agree, however I can’t see Hibs addressing it this window. They’ve made a lot of signings already, the priority seems to be Boyle (or another winger) and maybe a centre half.
For me it’s the last chance for JDH or Newell to show they can consistently deliver in this role, and for Magennis to get fit enough to get back on the park. If none of that happens, serious investment will be required.
Could do worse than take a punt on McGeouch on a pay as you play deal IMO.
I like to see us with a variety of quick players. There's been times in the past where we've maybe only had 1 or 2 which isn't great.
