    Everyone always talks about his attitude problem blah blah..

    Is there any actual evidence of him having a poor attitude?
    You mean like hiding in more games than doing what we know he can do?

    You mean coming out in the media and swearing his undying allegiance to Hibs and the contract he signed, then engineering a move away to Rangers.

    He is a class player when he wants to be, but he used us and lied to us openly, why should we want him back again?

    We have a tight bond of players now who have tasted success and want more. We know they will not let us down in trying to win this league and get us up there where we belong. With him i wouldnt be believing anything he said the players we have play for each other as a team. he would bring an attitude of ME ME ME!

    Rangers dont seem to want him any more when we dont have him anyway!

    Has player left Hibs?
    If Yes, have they been playing recently?
    --If No speculate on off loading and a potential return
    -- If No and returned to parent club speculate about a potential return
    -- If yes and playing fantasise about a potential return
    If No
    Speculate they are agitating for move and debate selling on fee showing ambition by going down south
    Else
    Speculate about return to Hibs
    Repeat

    Showed he can be a fantastic player if he actually stayed in the one place and played football games.

    I'm not too bothered about him wanting to progress and move on at some stage. The fact he couldn't just see out a few important months and the way he we've about things showed he has no right to be pulling on our shirt again.

    I'm 26. In my lifetime I'd say that other than Latapy and Brown he's the best midfielder I've seen at Hibs. I also believe that on his form from his Hibs career he could be starting in the EPL. Let's bare in mind he could dribble better than anyone in our team, cross better than anyone in our team, pass better than anyone in our team, was deceptively quick and other than Boyle was probably the quickest in our team. He was outstanding at Hibs, him being a welt of a guy doesn't change that.

    Better than Sauzee, McGinn & Zemmama too? No chance.

    Some of you really need to get the rose tinted glasses off regarding that wee rat. I've been watching Hibs every week for 15 years and he's nowhere near the top 5 even I've seen.

    Lets not forget on the whole he was also playing against absolute pish.

    I always remember Sauzee as a defender rather than a midfielder? McGinn, not alot between them, definitely a better player than Zemmama.

    Sauzee dropped into the defence when his legs started to go but the brain was still outstanding Allan couldn't lace Latapy's boots, nor Cropley, I would even say Brown and Thomson were better midfielders than Allan.

    Allan is a very talented lad but only when he can be ersed, he's worked his ticket wherever he's been and treated Hibernian football club and it's supporters with such disdain that he should only be back here playing for another club. I don't know what Stubs did to get that one season out of him but whatever it was he couldn't replicate it at Rotherham.

    I don't think there's any doubt that Scott Allan could be (should be!) playing at a much bigger club than on a loan at Barnsley. He's a very talented player, but like a lot of players of his generation he seems to have a very short-term view of things - more interested in the glamour and razza-ma-tazz than in getting his head down and grafting.

    He should be a first pick for the Scotland team - have you seen some of the guys who get picked ahead of him? He should be on our screens every week playing for a good EPL side, not struggling to get into a lower-league club's first team because no one can quite trust him to put in a shift for the jersey.

    Hibs gave him a chance. In the end, he let us down.

    Celtic gave him a chance. He didn't perform.

    Barnsley gave him a chance (actually, this was Stubbs giving him a second chance). Look at the outcome.

    Says it all, really.

    He isn't fit to lace Boozy's boots! He had one good season and didn't really produce as often as he should, he certainly wasn't "outstanding".

    As I said before, would have Fyvie, McGinn, McGeough and Commons easily ahead of him in our midfield.

    You really can't blame him, the poor laddie just wanted to play alongside his best pal at The Rangers and we ruined his boyhood dream.


    Sorry, I can't write any more cos I can feel the tears welling up now...

    Too cold for my dad to go to away games these days though he does enjoy telling me about a certain away game he attended on 1st Jan 1973..

    I would bring him back - to clean the boots of John McGinn and, hopefully, Liam Henderson.

    Sad waste of a very good talent. Don't like the way he treated the club though. The huns put in a pitiful offer for him knowing fine well hibs would tell them to bolt but all they wanted to do was turn Scott Allans head and along with their wee buddies in the media they wanted to stir up **** at hibs and get him to hand in a transfer request. Allan took the bate and wanted away to them. Felt it was a big slap in the face to hibs and Stubbs who had given him a chance and revived his career. The huns were our title rivals at the time ffs. Glad he didn't go there but lets face it celtic had no real interest in him until the huns starting making such a huge deal of getting him. Celtic just wanted to get him as a big "haha GIRFUY" to rangers IMO.

    On his day hes absolutely unreal but his attitude was a big **** you to hibs IMO. In hindsight we actually came off very well in the Allan deal. We used the money to permanently sign McGeouch and we got Hendo on loan. Both had a huge hand in us winning the SC and now hibs legends.

    Would I take him back? Yes. I would never turn down a talent like that but I would be wary of his attitude as he seems to have build a bit of a reputation for throwing his toys out the pram. We have a close knit dressing room with high morale and togetherness so the last thing we need is someone who would act like a brat. If Scott Allan had any sense at all he would just get his head down and focus on salvaging a career because its going nowhere fast atm.

    The thing with Allan is that there is a difference between being the most talented and being the best.

    He divided opinion even when he was here. I remember making the point about him being lazy when things didn't work for him and just giving up. I was given a fair bit of sick for that view at the time, but I stick by it.

    No doubt he's a talented footballer. The way he can open up the centre of the pitch is great to watch. But he never worked enough on the other side of his game. Working for the team.

    Can't believe folk would take him back after the bother he created at the start of last season.

    He's a rat and I don't want him anywhere near Hibs.

    I can't believe people think the Scott Allan that played for us couldn't get in our current team, just because they don't like him now.

    I always thought McGeough was the more effective player when Allan was here.

    No Chance, Zemamma was a better player for me, league cup winner, SPL player with a hibs team that had had the likes of boozy, thompson, brown and shields in midfield. His career was derailed a bit through injury not arrogance.

    Agreed, even when he was playing well the rest of the team often lacked the skill and vision to latch onto his passes. That's not his fault but why have someone who is too advanced for his team mates if it becomes counter productive.
    Sorry what? So we don't sign better players than what we have because the other players aren't good enough to play with them? Are you serious?

  29. #148
    Scott Allan, from what I saw, was up there with Brown, Thomson, Mcginn ability wise. Not in the same class as Sauzee and Latapy IMO. I believe he is a better player than Henderson however the drive and determination Henderson seems to have will probably see him have more career success.

    Loved Allan when he was at Hibs and like most felt pretty stabbed in the back they way treated the club last season. Anyone claiming the Scott Allan of 2 seasons ago would not improve this squad are completely blinded by his actions.

    Not a fan of him as a person, but there's no denying he was clearly the best player in our Hibs team 2 years ago.

    Scott Allan was miles and I mean miles ahead of anyone else on the park when he was here. Lad was superb but shame he was a bit of a clown.

    Anyway he's no coming back here so I'm not to fussed about him. Although I have heard the dark side could be planning to get him there.

    The game that always sticks out for me when talking about Scott Allan is the 4-0 hammering of the huns at ER. Allan absolutely ran a mock that day, rangers had absolutely no answers to him at all. Black couldn't get anywhere near him hence he had to resort to trying to hack him down. Allan frustrated the life out of him that day resulting in the rangers bench taking him off as it was almost a certainty that if he had stayed on he would have lost the plot and gotten himself sent off.

    The vision for the passes that led to the 3rd and 4th goals was just amazing.
