Rumour.

Nonsense.

We've a much bigger budget than all of they clubs. Fact.
Yes we have a bigger budget than those you mention, we just seem to spend most of it on compo packages for ex-managers and wages for underachievers. Time to give our new management team a fighting chance to build a fighting team again.
 
They seem to genuinely think we are on a par with Dundee, St Mirren, Kilmarnock & Motherwell.

Fuck that. Yes Celtc and the Huns are bigger and richer. However, I expect especially at home to give them a game.

And I'll never ever feel inferior to the Sheep or Gunts. Fuck. That. Yes i can't realistically expect us to outperform them consistently but I absolutely can expect us to be very competitive with them one-on-one, league positions & cups.

Let's not forget Bill Foley has got involved as he sees an opportunity to establish ourselves as *the* third force.
We've heard this third force stuff for a long time, until it happens it's just a myth, right now we're nowhere near third and will be competing probably for 5th or 6th (if we get a few players in)
 
Absolutely spot on. The day I accept the gunts and sheep are superior is the day I pack it in, and until then I will never apologise for not accepting lower. TIme for Foley and the gang to back up their words too. We seem to be spun to fuck by all these Americans all of the fucking time.
That was just the sell.
He has his 25% of the assets now so no need for any more actions in the meantime.
We gave him what he wanted and when he wants something else he will start selling the dream again.

Why does he want 25% to do fuck all with it?

Kooshy for the Gordons mind you, can see why they would be delighted, buy the club for £6m, loan the club money that they get back to improve their own investment then sell quarter of it for the same price they bought the whole club. Not one penny will be lost by them, and quite a few pennies will be made.

Not that I would grudge them that if the playing side of the club was anywhere near remotely successful.

Then ownership of the 25% is completely pointless?
 
I don't slate every player we have. So that's a lie.

I don't slate or claim every player we are linked with as being shite. So that's another lie.


Hibs have everything in place to be successful. We have good ownership. We have excellent infrastructure. What's let us down is poor recruitment. And poor appointments of managers.

We are no mythical huge club. We are in Scottish football terms a bigger club than most.
I said guys - plural, not you specifically. Bambino has the copyright on the use of shite in what seems like every post
 
Guys that aren't released from English league two teams for a start.

Mitov would have been quality for us. There's an example. So would have Spittal.
Mitov was at the mighty Cambridge United when he signed for St Johnstone last season. I take it you would have thought him a shite signing if he'd signed for us then?

So he was playing in League one then and not released by a team in the league below.

Pretty irrelevant then eh?
 
Dunno, not sure what that's got to do with you asking the kind of quality I expect though.
You're naming names so it's a valid question in respect of those players. How do we know certain players haven't been approached on the quiet and they've decided Hibs? fuck that.

You asked me to name names, I gave two as an example.

You ask loads of questions and now you are "and how do we know?" Well I guess we will never know, but it's the standard of player I would hope we are ambitious enough to attract.

Let's hope we get an English Third Division player who was their club's POTY the season before last then.
You never know, we might let him play a game before we decide he's shite.

I would be more than happy if we signed a player that was player of the year in England League 1 last season.

You would think we didnae sign heaps of shite season after season the way you are acting :)
 
Not particularly. There have been some hits and a lot of misses. But I am always going to wait and see a player before stamping my feet and threatening to stay away in the huff.
So you would sit and wait and to see a player play before ever commenting a player signed is a good signing too?

You might not want to call out shite, others do. And it's not stamping feet to not be utterly deluded.

25% is just his foot in the door.
He and his group want the whole thing and their hired hands and lawyers will start lobbying for changes to the club ownership laws.
They will chip away until they get what they want.

Which leads us back to our supporters. We could have bought the club for less than 6 million quid. We had our destiny in our hands and shat it for a few hundred quid a nut. We're all guests on someone elses train now and all we can do is watch the scenery and hope they take us somewhere nice and don't crash.

If we're referring to be Mitov, I don't think he was POTY the season he signed for St J? Think it was the season before that.
Not that it matters, there would be some on here moaning because it was Cambridge. Fucking. United.
 
Well thats the rumour thread completely fucked up now.
Oh well, lucky we are shite, pish, under achievers, small club, skint, big club, loadsa money, big historical club, starting afresh, new hibs men at the helm, hibs management, coaches know the Scottish game…. Have i missed anything?
Not bad for a rumours thread 😞
It may well be very important issues… but start a thread ffs, sick of seeing new posts and its all this to and fro about nothing to do with any rumours 😡

So he won player of the year for a League one team then? Does he have to win it every season likes? He also was player of the year for a team in our league, a type of player that we should be looking at, not the usual job squad.

Can't you see there's a massive difference between that, and released player from the league below?
 
So you will never comment on any player we sign, good or bad until he plays for us? Fair do's.
I might. But I won't say he's definitely shite, or otherwise, until he's had a chance in a Hibs shirt.
@Hattie: The rumour is we're signing O'Hora, released by MK Dons. Let the fun begin.

I know mate, i read that multiple posts ago and everything else but rumours since. I know there’s always going to be debates about said rumours but ffs… nothing worse than seeing a new post about “rumours” and it just constantly everything but
