Apparently Reading are wanting 750k and are refusing to budge so McNulty is now looking unlikely even although the player was keen to come. Efe has knocked back a short term deal. He obviously is still whoring himself around England searching for gold at the end of the rainbow. Cummings has signed a loan deal with Luton so we can forget about him. I can't help feeling that emptying your manager a few days before the window closed was always going to be detrimental to our chances of bringing in players.

The timing was crazy.
Probably not planned that way but it’s definitely put deals in doubt.
I’m getting my vino tinto out to monitor the gossip tonight but the bubbly will be staying in the wine chiller I suspect.

Just did a double take when I saw Killie got Liam Miller but it's the Canadian one. Not a bad signing for them.

Not many players would sign for a club with no manager. Especially players from England who hardly have a clue who we are. Lenny and Stubbs had a bit of clout down south and that got some players over the line but without anyone in charge, players won't take the risk.

Just waiting for the inevitable Hibs tweet proclaiming all our business is done :(

Think it's important to remember the players that we've reportedly been after... Are of a better standard than a lot of us have been used to at Hibs.
So it's no surprise players we look at, end up in England or old firm *****.

It's about trying to get in there before anyone else does.. Agents make sure everyone else does instead.

Tough game this transfer business.

Although, obviously our present circumstances make it much harder, but there's people there who do this alongside the headcoach... So they're capable on their own too.
I hope.

Too early to say too much.... However, if this is it then serious questions need asked and the answer will be given in thousands not renewing their season tickets.

Really down to the wire now and I think there's a risk of some poor judgments being made if we're still in the frame for a number of deals that start falling apart, but Leeann knows she needs to throw us some kind of a bone to keep the pitchfork mob at bay.

Montaefuk Hibs, give me something to cheer me up. Red wine, Doritos and minstrels can only sustain me so long on deadline day.

You just need to look at the number of season ticket holders who are not even turning up this season. I've no doubt we will be back to the diehards shortly. That, in turn, reduces the amount we have to spend on the team and the whole rat race starts again.

Is there a lot of ST holders not turning up?
I’m not turning up on Saturday but not because I’ve taken the hump with Hibs, more a weekend away with family.

I'm not going*. I was fine last week when we had a manager who'd won two games out of fourteen but now he's gone I don't see the point. No ambition from the board.




* I am really

You got a number?
Keep seeing this. I'm calling bullshit.

How many season tickets were sold?
Attendances are all above 14k except for a couple cups and an Aberdeen game.

Give me some figures to clear this up.

Hundreds of empty seats for sold out games tells me he's spot on

Attendances are quoted as always above 14k, but take a look around at the next game, they are about 4k over what you can see. Unless they have started counting the seagulls.

Doesn't mean season ticket holders are abandoning us.. Hundreds of seats out of thousands of people..

I'll bet there's more still going that not.. So it's hardly like an exodus.. Read it about 5 times in the last couple days..
