that Hopefully we are also working behind the scenes on a possible replacement. 

We are.

Blue bigot manager says (in his latest press conference) that he knows nothing about alleged interest in Hladky. Says that it's his agent generating interest.

I would understand these meetings taking place when looking for an actual transfer in January.

I thought the rules were different regarding pre-contracts, I was under the belief that these discussions couldn’t take place until then. The fact it’s public knowledge is making me think I must have been wrong.

There’s no need to have a dig at me, the point of my post was looking for clarity on the answer as I believed I was assuming wrong. I was looking for a definite answer, not an obnoxious one.

Apologies for giving you the impression I was having a dig at you - it was not my intension. I was simply making the point that agents meet folk to tout their players whether it is legally above board or not. They are out for themselves plus their players only.

It is my experience that contracts and pre contract agreements have been drawn up and fully agreed before transfer windows open - then signed and dated when it was right to do so.  So that it what I was attempting to express.

The situation sounding positive regarding Hladky staying.

As much as I'd like to cash on him in January, Saturday showed how important he is to us.

His save from O'Halloran when he was clean through was exceptional.

It’s win win either way. Keep a quality keeper for another 6 months, or make some decent money.

We are probably better off with the player as the club seem to have no real idea how to use the money properly.

I believe that with Hladky in goals, we will stay up. Whilst I’m not saying without him we will definitely go down, I believe the likelihood will increase considerably.

Therefore it’s a simple calculation for me. If the cost of going down is more than the sum we’re offered, then it’s a no from me.

I’m watching Rochdale v Newcastle on Match of the Day just now and I noticed Craig Samson amongst the coaches on the Rochdale bench. 
 

Good goalie for us and I understand he is a decent guy, but if he hadn’t left us a year ago to join Sunderland I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t have signed Hladky. 
 

Now bearing in mind that firstly, Hladky is better than Samson and secondly, we dodged the drop in May by the skin of our teeth, I think the only conclusion we can draw is: thank you Craig and well done Sunderland.

Really? I was certain I read that Jack Ross had taken him and John Potter to Hibs.

It's a high risk business. The big guy was good when with us imo. He made the call. I'm sure he hasn't lost out financially and things worked out OK for us in brining in Hladky (so far). Best wishes to Craig and hope that Hladky either stays around or goes for a pretty penny.

I'm in Prague and saw this ad in a magazine.
Apparently 'hladky' is the Czech word for 'smooth'.

Alan Combe, another ex buddie, still goalkeeping coach with hibs.

Bostik Feet as Davie Hay called him. 

Very decent keeper in his day.

Combe was a shite goalkeeper.

You don't seem to like many of the goalkeepers we have had Shull. 

That's actually makes him out to be better than he was.  Not as bad as Scrimgour, though.

Hladky has been terrific for us since he came here. Up there with Campbell Money and Billy Thomson IMO.

A wee nod in the direction of Craig Hinchcliffe, one of our top 4 or 5 keepers in my long, long time supporting the buddies.

I recall both scrimmy and combe having decent starts to their career with us. Went rapidly downhill from there for both of them.
