    I honestly dont think McGinn will care that much about living in Edinburgh or Aberdeen at this stage of his career. He clearly went to South Korea for the dosh so he will be going where he can earn the most money.

    He will be retired in 3 or 4 years time and will be able to live anywhere he likes, the lure of getting to live in Edinburgh is often over exaggerated by both Hibs and Hearts fans IMO.

    More money, better team, place he's already familiar with and was settled, guys he's already mates with, manager he knows will play him. I can't see any reason he'd go anywhere other than Aberdeen.

    He still has a house up there as well.
    I don’t think they are a better team though.

    Sheep beat ue but they arent as good as the media make them out to be. The two games they lost in a row against sevco proved that.

    Spend some time in Aberdeen and you will quickly realise its a horrible place to live.

    The best part of Aberdeen is the A90 South bound.

    Not literally. He's put in some very good crosses.
    Honestly, I'd love an example because I genuinely haven't seen a cross of his find a Hibs player. Very few beat the first man.

    His crosses dont find hibs players because our players are miles behind play

    Not true. His crosses find the goalkeeper or first man because he is generally been poor at crossing.

    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.


    Come on Leanne.
    This is the sort of player we need.

    Splash the cash and sicken them sheep.

    Of course they are. Take off your green tinted specs. They've finished 2nd in the league for 3? years now and will most likely finish 2nd this season too. In direct contests we've lost 3 in a row. Admittedly on our day we can put in a performance to match anyone including Celtic like the game at Parkhead but over the course of a season, which is what ultimately matters, they are better than us.

    Agree. We donít score enough goals to be making claims about being better than them or Sevco.

    Only crosses that find hibs players are inch perfect ones cause there's never any well timed runs or movement in the box. The amount of times the ball could be smashed low across goal but it gets floated to the back post and comes to nothing is unreal

    They just spanked us. They are quite considerably better than us.

    Not necessarily. On another day we're more than capable of beating them. They had a couple of pretty poor game performances against the huns very recently with us playing very well up until Saturday there. We haven't become a bad team on one insipid display. We're still a very good team when in form and with a weeks rest been had this week i think we can look forward to a much better overall game from us against Ross County.

    Looking forward to it. Mon the Cabbage!!!

    I wouldn't have said so after the game at ER. After that game I thought they were nothing special and very fortunate to get the points..

    We had a big hand in said 'spanking', they played well yes, but don't any of us have seen such an abject performance since the butcher days. Bit of a flippant example IMO.

    Pretty sure Aberdeen have beaten us the last 4 times we have played them.

    The last 3 certainly bit think the Malonga league cup game was the one before that?

    Think they are better than us right now but 4-1 is not an accurate reflection of the gulf. The other 2 defeats were very near things where we arguably deserved something from each.

    Give us a few seasons of premier league football and maybe Europe too and I'm confident we'll catch them up.

    Would you consider Hearts to be considerably better than Celtic?

    FWIW I think Aberdeen are better than us, and so they should be given recent seasons, but not for the reason you've provided.

    Can't believe we are even discussing whether Aberdeen are better than us.

    Literally ever available measurement puts them ahead of us at this point in time.

    I don't think we're a million miles behind them though.

    You really don't like Barker do you? You find it really difficult to say anything complimentary about him at all. Shame, I think he's an exciting player to watch but each to his own.

    McGinn has six offers on the table according to his agent. Let the bidding war commence.
