Well.
I’m trusting the Heck knows more than me ( he really does) but I’m just a tad nervy.

Whilst I think it's good that he wants to give our excellent young players a real chance this season to establish themselves as first teamers, he must know as much as anyone that we are short of players in central midfield and up front. If we have given up on McNulty then he must have a similar sort of player lined up. If the rumours about Kamberi leaving come to pass then it's two strikers required.
Hibs huge problem last season was a lack of real quality in the striking positions and just generally in the last third. He has at least tried to address the creativity problem in midfield, but IMO we have not increased the quality up front...although I do think Doidge will be an important player for us.
Three players still required surely to God.

Hopefully lessons are learned from last year. Started the season with Flo, MacLaren and Shaw, that turned out to be a disaster.

I am concerned if Hecky thinks our squad is anywhere near strong enough.We need at least three more decent signings.He must be the only one at Easter Road who is happy with the squad.

Had no desire to attend any of the games so far but going off what I've read on here if a few of our signings dont buck up their ideas its going to be a long season . I was happy we were doing business early but our signings so far haven't set the heather on fire as yet it appears

If that’s us finished in this window and for whatever reason , Flo , Rocky , Sdg and Lewis aren’t starters by the st. Mirren game , we could have problems :38:

If he is happy with one more in, it may well turn out that Hecky doesn't know his arse from his elbow.
We'll find out by the end of September.

Hopefully this is just bluffing from PH.

Not sure why he would be though.

We all know we need strengthened in certain areas. Maybe no more cash available for players?
Wee bit concerning regardless

We do this every season it seems like. Start the season with a bare bones squad, struggle until January, then desperately bring in players and are playing catch up. I’m hoping PH is full of shite and we bring in another 3-4 QUALITY players.

I've not seen us play yet but my suspicions are a lot of folk are over reacting.

When Allan, James, Doidge, arrived and a couple of youngsters broke through, I thought this could be a fine season for us. That plus the Gordon money and the McGinn promotion money. Thought we'd have the resources to make things happen. Just needed to get Omeonga, McNulty deals over the line to create a spine to the team with plenty of dig and goals in it.

Then the Ojo affair. Got a gut feeling this will come back and bite us on the arse if he bosses and organises the Sheep midfield the way they expect him to. The movie For A Few Dollars More came to mind. Then McNulty told to find a new club but nothing has happened. That might come good but who knows. Omeonga? Again, who knows. We're told that the problem is at the other end but money talks.

There's still time yet but I'm not feeling any feelgood factor yet. With the current squad we wont be at the Top 4 races. Its so much weaker than 2 seasons ago.
