Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

I will eat my words. What a sensational performance last night. Did not look out of place after being out so long. I'd keep him in the starting lineup for Saturday. 

While it looks like Foley is away, after his performance last night, I’d like to think Flynn is still in the manager’s plans for next season.

A calm level head for the younger guys to learn from on the pitch, and tI’m sure he’s a good guy to have in the dressing room too.

He’s mentioned Dylan before, seems the plan is to get him some game time before the end of this season and have him in the first team squad next season.

I’m all for that.

They just signed Jackson Irvine and Chris Cadden.

Mallan is about sixth choice now,

Jackson Irvine is pants. Chris Cadden more of a wide player. WTF is Jack trying to do? Turn Hibs into a team of central midfield players.  Good. One more shite time in the league will make it easier for us.

34 caps for Australia would suggest otherwise. 

IF we were signing him most would be, quite rightly, getting pretty excited.

I thought J Irvine was Hibs best player against the Fakes last week.

Also thought his fitness was excellent since he hasn't played since last season. 

Find out on Monday how good or bad he may be.

Indeed.

I thought his link up play from back to front was excellent. He likes to get into the box too.

Watch the highlights of Dundee Utd v Hibs yesterday best player on pitch by a mile and set up both goals with really good passes especially the first one.

Mutterings of Connor Sheilds being someone we're potentially looking at on a pre-contract along with Killie and Dundee Utd.

Goodwin worked with him at Alloa and he's got 9 goals in 17 this season for a relatively poor QotS team.

Would be delighted with that, a good age as well. If we went into next season with Obika, Dennis, Brophy & Shields I’d be very happy. Big German TBC I suppose but get the feeling Erwin might drop out the pecking order.

It happens sometimes that guys just start to click. Especially with younger guys at the start of their career...I mean look at Kevin Nisbet's record before Raith Rovers picked him up...8 goals in 70 games and 6 of those were at league 2 level and now he's getting £3m bids thrown about for him.

The club will be doing a lot more than just looking at cold stats.

They'll be looking at all aspects of his game to see if we can be the team to coax 10+ goals out of him.

If we bring another striker in I doubt we'll keep Obika. I think he, along with Erwin, will be surplus to requirement.

Yeah I think that could be the case, been a good servant but we always need to be looking to progress. If he does stay though, would be happy.

For me, Obika is our most effective striker and played a very important part of our success this season. It would be madness to let him go at this stage. I expect Brophy to become our number one striker when he gets up to speed but I can't see him being involved in more goals than Obika does. Dennis is still a bit of an unknown quantity but has showed some promise in the last couple of games but I would definitely be concerned if we were going ahead without that option.

Also like the look of Connor Shields, Killie appear to be favourites but surely they wont sign a player without a manager? James Fowler appears to be calling the shots there but would expect us to be in a better position to get him.

Exactly. I think some people miss or just don't understand what Obika brings to the team.
