    A.c. Milan and Everton quoted as being after him.

    Templeton got released by Hamilton today along with Crawford.
    That's a bit of a surprise unless he knocked a deal back.

    Think he must have, been one of their top scorers

    I wonder if we are going for templeton. He’d be a decent enough replacement for barker perhaps.

    On Efe, there is no doubting he is a very good player but if we are offered a decent fee I would take it given the fact Porteous is coming through and that gap left will hopefully mean more game time for him.

    Sol Bamba recently was voted into Championship team of the year after winning promotion.

    Bamba and Efe have their moments but if you have consistently watched Hibs since he signed you can see how well Efe has played.

    David Gray while a legend is no where near the level of Efe.

    The term bombscare seems to be used to describe a footballer who looks relaxed on the ball and not the rough and ready James McPake type.

    Flo
    Allan
    Mclaren

    All priority.

    McGinn I expect to move to Celtic or somewhere like Leeds.
    FWIW after his loan spell where he was very good I always considered McPake an utter liability. Couldn't get into the right positions for toffee and as a result he had to make lots of big committed lunging tackles which although they look impressive doesn't make for a good defender.

    Efe is different class. So was Bamba.

    Stevie Mallan would be a fantastic addition. I heard Murray Davidson was linked with us too.

    Efe is certainly a classy player going forward, but personally I think most of his best games have been when filling in at right back. He linked well with Dylan and Boyle and was happy to stride forward himself, picking passes and being heavily involved in build up play in the opposition half. Having Boyle in front of him helped too as the squirrel is always a willing runner both going forward and tracking back, meaning there was decent cover when he did take things a bit far and lose the ball. At centre back as he was on Sunday, he looks a lot more exposed.

    I still think Efe signed because Lennon and Hibs did him a favour so he could get his residency visa, 2 year deal and a wee transfer fee for his visa, he would've been out of our wage bracket coming from Celtic but a good deal for everyone.

    Some of the dross we’ve had at the back over the years and some on here are calling out Efe. He has been an absolute joy to watch.

    Bizarre how differently folk see the game.

    For me, Efe is the type of player who makes me enjoy going to the fitba. Love the guy.

    Absolutely this.

    Efe’s ‘cigar & slippers’ style is exactly what I want to see. He’s different class.

    There a few who sit next to me saying he is a bombscare but that’s the way efe plays the game . Anybody can just lump the ball up the park but I prefer players trying to play football from the back and you just have to accept the odd mistake

    I think the people that don’t like him are the ones that are the first to shout .......”just get it tae **** for ****s sake.......” and then compain when we’re not keeping possession.

    Have we lost any goals this season from him being careless in possession?

    I’m sure he’s been at fault for other reasons at times but the way people go on you’d think he gave a goal away every second week.

    This. He’s a pleasure to watch. A class act who really should be playing at a much higher level. Enjoy him while he is still here

    Efes had his moments this season, but he is a joy to watch when on song.

    Glen Kamara from Dundee should be Dylan’s replacement.

    Unfortunately he will probably have better offers.
    Thete is a reasons Dundee are in the basement and he is one of tgem.

    There is also a reason why Swansea want to spend a million on him. Remember where Scott Allan was at the start of the season

    I can't believe so many folk want rid of Efe, he had maybe 2 bad games all season.
    I can, you know how it goes, someone says they don't like player X because he is ..... and before you know it the usual crew jump on the band wagon.

  19. #108
    ****ing mental how many people want rid of Efe.

    It's been cigar and slippers time for most of the season for him and I can't remember us having many CBs that can play it out from the back like him, never mind his jaunts up the wing like a winger.

    Think thats overly simplistic, Nottingham forest were relegated with Roy Keane in their team, look at the talent Leeds United had when they went down,

    The 4-1 game at Pittodrie tbf.

    Otherwise he's just got an incredible ability to beat a man when being closed down and he can make the opposition look really stupid. He's been excellent.

    A total football playing defender. It’s been a while since we had one of them. My player of the year.

    Both Efe and McGeoch have a great ability to feint in a way that makes their opponent shift their body weight, allowing them to ghost by the opponent, where we all expect the opponent to make a tackle but that weight shift is enough to render them useless.

    its often attackers who do this (Salah for example), EA and DM tend to it much deeper, but this often causes the oppositions defensive shape to be pierced.

    players like Efe are a joy and heart-in-mouth to watch, I’ll be sad to see him leave. Would certainly much rather have his type as Michael Nelson types

    Great to see Efe getting the praise he richly deserves.

    An an absolute pleasure to watch who will be sadly missed but fondly remembered if he goes.

    Still hoping he stays and sees outs his contract, then he get get a bumper pay deal when he moves on for free next summer.

    Seen on twitter that we're interested in County right back Jason Naismith. Out of contract, quite a few teams interested though

    Depends on the formation, but if we’re playing four at the back i’d have Naismith ahead of anyone else at the club just now. Boyle is a very good option at wing back as well if we go 3-5-2.

    I’m still to be convinced by him. However if our recruitment staff think so, I’ll go along with that
