Thats my concern. He seems a bit error prone.

He'll fit in well in our defence then :devil:

Shrekko
31-08-2008, 03:30 PM
People are saying he's error prone and a bombscare- is there actually any evidence of this or is this just a pre-conceived idea?

I can remember him making any obvious errors- do other folk saying otherwise actually have any good examples?

You think with Ian Murray, Jones and Hogg that were lacking somebody prepared ot make their presence felt? I think they are all pretty good in that aspect ? Lewis Stevenson is pretty robust as well.

On paper our back four looks decent enough, unfortunately football is played on grass. I'd take him, good, tough player - may be able to do a job for us.

Murray- midfielder, Jones-yes, Hoggy-no, although a solid pro,... and Lewis a big physical presence? Stevenson has to try and be 'robust' to make up for the fact that most players are far stronger than him- it's not his fault, just his size.

Nobody has come up with any evidence re the 'bombscare' allegation.

Think it sums up the defensive qualities of our midfeild players at present to be honest. Take a look at Zouma at the well goal yesterday. I think all playersd should defend when we don't have the ball and barring two centre backs and maybe one defensive midfeilder everyone should be attacking minded when we have it.

:agree: Young scottish player (hibee aswell) who has been scotland U19 captain and looked assured everytime he has played for us. how much better will bamba be compared to McCormack? would much rather see mixu go with DM and put any wages bamba would have recieved towards a certain ex striker of our.

I dont really picture Bamba as an attacking right-back which is what Gateussi is.

You say Bamba bombs forward- I just dont see that at all, he's a no nonsense cente-half.
As for being erratic, nobody has been able to come up with any reasoning for that.

The guy is an Ivory Coast under 23 international who Watford were very keen to sign. That would say something to me.

If thats true re the Pars fans then I'd definitely accept that it's not a good signing.

Me, and virtually every other person thats posted wont have seen him play very often but he did look a very promising player the year they beat us in the cup semi- he was very good in that cup game.

keep the faith
31-08-2008, 06:17 PM
Pars season ticket holder I know cant believe a bigger club has not come in for Bamba.

He was good in the cup games against us last season thats for sure.

Young McCormack knocked back a move to the smellies to stay at ER, what is he know around 20/21 yrs old ? always looked a half decent prospect when he's played, surely worth a few more games by now.

According to this we've had a 50k bid accepted by the pars and signing talks have taken place yesterday. Motherwell have also had a bid accepted and held signing talks.
Not convinced by this, especially if we are baulking at 250k for Deeks.

I really hope this deal doesn't go through either, every time I've seen the guy play he's been an accident waiting to happen ..I hear the Dunfermline fans call him "Bomb scare Bamba". :bitchy:

I think you will find they will be delighted if we took him off their hands :brickwall

May I also add, he was playing in the centre of defence when they got relegated .

I'm sure zibi also put in a 'handful of superb goalkeeping displays' during his tenure with us .:devil:

I was one of the people who rated him (maybe in the minority by the looks of things). Yes I think he has his moments but he was MOM in the cup semi v dunfermline if I remember, rock solid.

He strikes me as one of those who can head the ball all day and win tackles when he plays in a team tht is more defensive - i.e. Parkheid or Ibrox but prone to the odd gaff when no fully utilised against other teams.

01-09-2008, 07:14 AM
Reading between the lines i reckon Jones is one of the players attracting serious interest if we are looking to sign another centre back. Currently have Jones, Hogg, Canning, Murray and McCormack who can play there Hanlon too if push came to shove.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hogg was attracting interest and his performances latterly suggest he has other things on his mind. Last couple of years a very consistent performer latterly, though, he has made a few mistakes. Although the 'mini lap of honour' is what he does at the end of every game coming to the fans to show his appreciation. I wouldn't suggest it was anything else...but you never know...good luck to him if he is on his way

DBHibs
01-09-2008, 08:24 AM
Bamba would be a no bad addition to the squad I reckon.

But is he any better than the centre halves we already have? Surely the cash could be better spent on a goalkeeper or Matty Jack-type midfielder?

Mixu probably identified him as a possible target that is within the wage and transfer fee stranglehold, oops sorry, structure.

Personally, I also think that centre half is priority position to strengthen as Jones is a nightmare. Whether Bamba is the the right man to strengthen is another question but we need somebody.

Cover for when Jones is suspended/injured? I think most would agree we lack someone to deal with high balls etc and let Hogg work off them when Jones ain't there.

If so I'd welcome the signing.

Haven't you heard - if we don't sign Deeks, that means we have done "no business" during this transfer window, which is a shining endoresement of the FIVE (yes count them you dunderheids) new players Mixu has brought in.

In a perverse way, I sort of hope he doesn't sign, just to see if gravity in the Leith area reverses, and the sun sets into the Firth of Forth. I assume that'll be the least of our worries if the Messiah doesn't return.

Our defence can't keep a clean sheet and we're writing off the signing of a centre back before its even happened - quality!!

how many of you negative posters have actually seen him a lot recently. so dont base judgement on him 2 years ago when he was only 21. He's 23 so probably matured a bit and hibs will have had him watched. If they think he's good enough then he probably is.

Thats my view on it too, he did seem to make the odd mistake, but he always seemed to do well against us, and did have a lot of promise, hopefully if he comes he can make that step up and improve again with us.

Probably in the reserves ( and that isn't meant to be negative), he's played 3 games since Christmas (is that appearance money reasons?)

Our wages are competitive with all clubs outwith the OF and Hearts says Rod. Hmmm should be a no brainer then. Time will tell

Big, strong and quick but very raw.

If Mowbray or Collins were still in charge I'd take him in a minute, as I think there's a player in there if developed properly.

I've seen no indication, though, that Mixu can bring players on.

Can any Pars fans looking in confirm whether he's left or right sided? If he's right-sided I wouldn't be disappointed if he signed, but if he's a leftie then it's another body to stall Darren McCormack's progress yet further.

how many of you negative posters have actually seen him a lot recently. so dont base judgement on him 2 years ago when he was only 21. He's 23 so probably matured a bit and hibs will have had him watched. If they think he's good enough then he probably is.

Pars ST holder at my work watches him every week and cannot believe we are in for him.

I haven't seen Bamba recently and as I said yesterday I think he went through a period where he was really impressive, however I also seem to remember him being a liability at Dunfermline.

I will reserve judgement until I see him play in a Hibs jersey but at this moment I can't say i'm overly ecstatic at his arrival. Sincerely hope he proves me wrong though. :agree:

I did some stewarding at east end last season, and have to say when he pays attention bamba can be pretty good, maybe even hibs class :wink:, but the guy seems to have his head in the clouds 90% of the game, hopefuly its because he feels he was too gd for 1st division and playin in the top flight for hibs, were hes gonna have to fight for his place, will bring out the best in him... although i think we shouldv signed scott wilson... hes been brilliant recently

A couple of Pars fans I know, used to say he was a fairly good player (when he was settled there) but since his eyes have strayed further afield, they have said he is mince. What do you believe? As I said earlier, IMHO he's no better that what we have and potentially a waste of 100K which might have been more useful in other negotiations. Unless of-course, certain parties know that certain deals are complete no-no's and are hurriedly using what cash is there to be spent on new players.....I hope not.

How can people possbily be so negative about a guy that hasn't even played for us yet? I am so sick of hearing my mates mate says he is crap etc. I have seen him only a couple times and always thought he looked decent. Still only young and might be that big physical presence that we need at the back.

Did anyone see how easily Hogg was turned for the goal on saturday?

I reckon people should take a massive step back and at least wait to see a player play before syaing he is rubbish. I doubt very highly anyone posting here has actually seen enough of him to judge him either way.

Unless Jones is on his way, I can't see the sense in this signing at all...
Sure, Bamba was good in the SC semi-final games against us but is he any better than Canning or McCormack - Thicot and Murray also capable of playing in central defence.
Maybe McCormack will be sent out on loan, along with Campbell, who needs to beef up.

I think the problem with, a lot of the fans, at the moment is that if we don't sign DR the board have failed.
Nothing else seems relevant.
Of course if DR doesn't score in his first 3 games, heaven help the lad!

That will of course turn into a thread about DR not being able to work with Mixu.

Judging by the mixed reviews on here i hope his time at Hibs is spent terrifying the opposing forwards and not the home support.:greengrin

Haven't seen that much of him, he did play well against us and he's certainly a big, powerful looking bloke (not hibs dwarf class:greengrin) hopefully he'll leave the bombscare tag (that some have given him) in fife.

With all the Riordan excitement I almost forgot we had signed this guy yesterday as well. Asked a Pars ST mate of mine what his thoughts were on Bamba, this was the reply.

Bamba is a big, big favourite at East End Park.

The only reason he was not playing regularly was that he was not in favour
With MacIntyre who was a pr ick for no playing him.

Can play anywhere along the back four and is a two-footed player.

With a regular game he will come into his own.

Like to go forward at corners and set pieces.

A really good addition and seem like you signed him for, excuse the
expression, peanuts.

So he COULD be our new left-back? :dunno:

FWIW, I really would like to see an experienced keeper signed. That situation has gone on far too long. But equally, the keeper we sign needs to be the right one.

But when I remember previous transfer windows, having Derek Riordan and Sol Bamba signed up on the last day of this window makes me a lot more hopeful than I was two days ago. Better yet that we don't appear to have had to break the bank to sign them.

TBF, the squad looks a lot better this morning. :devil:

But we MUST keep a sense of proportion. According to the TV news, the BIG news in Scottish football this morning is that Neil Lennon was given a doing after the OF game (2 days ago now?) and that Bobo Balde ISN'T moving from Celtic. We must learn to know our place....

as someone far more erudite than i posted the other day "we get the fans that hearts deserve" :wink:

i have noticed a real change in the mentality of hibs supporters of late, unless someone is instantly brilliant then they are pilloried to the point where they are scared to make mistakes and are hardly likely to fulfill their potential. Sadly i think Bamba will fall into this category, we'll probably never find out if he can make it becasue the boo boys are out in force even before the guy has had the opporchancity to kick a ball for the club.
