    I agree that Barker needs to add more end product and goals to his game - and get as frustrated as everyone else as he seems to have talent.

    One thing that he does though, is have a reputation for speed (like Boyle) and what happens in many games is that teams try to double (or treble) up on him - this creates space for the midfield / strikers.

    e.g. Murrays goal v Hearts

    I would think Celticís full backs have not been so quiet in attack all season as they were on Sunday.

    4-3-3 with Stokes on the left.

    Tavenier will be greeting before the match starts.
    He actually hasn't stopped since 21.05.2016.

    Barker is an exciting winger, you have to accept that sometimes he'll not get by his man but I'd rather watch a player like him try it than not.

    A winger skinning a full back is one of the finest sights in football, IMHO.

    I think it's the difference between what we want from a Hibs player and what the yam support want from theirs

    Almost right.

    A good winger up against a good full back is the finest sight. Wins and losses on both sides makes it more interesting.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    Hibs favorites to sign him according to today's scotsman

    Its not that he doesnt beat his man, he literally has not put in a good cross yet. He desperately has to improve his crossing.

    Not literally. He's put in some very good crosses.

    I've seen him put in plenty good crosses as has Boyle. The issue is our Centre Forwards seemed to have developed the knack of disappearing when the ball comes in to the box.

    The Sheep seem confident of McGinn going back to them? I had hoped Hibernian would have fought hard to bring him in.

    Our centre forwards could also do with remembering that they won't score if they aren't on the end of them. A winger can only do so much and more often than not Barker delivers a decent cross.

    Potentially the McInnes factor pulling him back to Aberdeen, but I thought I heard McInnes say that funds would be quite low in January. Still hopeful we get McGinn in, the sort of player we need imo.

    I think it will all come down to money. The sheep support seem to think its a done deal and are laughing off any suggestion that Hibs and Hearts are even in with a chance of landing him.

    I think it'll be us or Hearts. Why would you go to Aberdeen if you can live in Edinburgh? Unless his family are up there.

    I'm certain it'll come down to money. If he wants to come back to SPL, he'll sign for whoever pays him most. He didnae go to China for the football experience.

    Surely we are capable of beating aberdeen to a player though? I hope Hibs push the boat out for him. We need to lay down a marker.

    Aberdeen recieve large donations from fans who have done well with start up companies in oil and gas.
    They received £775k in November from an IT firm in America, some building company donated a few million last year. It's rumoured Rooney is paid 5k which Stewart Milne pays from his construction company.
    The same figures were for Hayes and McGinn.
    Most oil companies I know have boxes which are used every Saturday.
    Aberdeen seem to be able to generate allot of money although still train on public parks at time and have a stadium with 1 decent stand.

    Yet when you ask Aberdeen about their lower attendances they blame it on the oil downturn...

    I have been surprised that no major operator has sponsored Aberdeen previously and sunk some serious money into them.
    They sometimes train on the grass next to the beach between the driving range and the pool.
    Hibs can offer better a better city to live and training facilities that Aberdeen don't have. If it comes to £ I think aberdeen will be able to offer more.

    The report just says heís hoping for a decision from McGinn soon, no hint that Aberdeen will be his destination. They will likely pay more than both Hibs/Hearts but Iím not convinced he gets a start in their team.

    Its all down to Leeann to get this guy in..she pulled it off with Stokes so im sure she can do it again with Nial McGinn. The facilities and lifestyle he can have had Hibs will hopefully play a major part.
