    Why ? I want to keep tabs on SJM want him to be a massive player for Scotland and id imagine we will have a tidy sell on clause
    Absolutely. So there is a direct connection between SJM doing well and Hibs benefitting.

    There is also the slightly more indirect benefit that when looking to attract good young prospects in the future we can use SJM as a perfect example of how me can add value to their career.

    Finally I want him to do well just to prove what we have been saying about him for 3 years is true.

    Always thought he would go for 5mil. Disappointed.but on this showing hes worth millions more than that.
    Bugger cant even hold up my big told you so banner. Annoyed as hell.
    His worth was always lower due to being a player having about a year left on his contract and playing for a club of our relative stature.
    Whether or not anyone thinks this is fair or reasonable is irrelevant in determining his value for being sold.

    If we've got £2.75 million (minus whatever the St Mirren sell on was) plus a decent sell on clause inserted I think we've done well.
    The fact that people we've never heard of are going from Norwich to Leicester for £25m has nothing to do with it.

    The best part is that he didn't go West and I can now follow his career and hope he's a success.

    In all the fall out from the McGinn saga, it seems itís now obligatory for the media to say Celtc missed out on their ďlong term targetĒ.

    When Hibs played Celtc last season and Rodgers was invited to comment on McGinn, he went out of his way to dismiss any comparison with Scott Brown and talked him down.

    If McGinn was indeed a long term target, it was a strange way to act.

    Steve Bruce was very much personally involved in persuading McGinn to move to Villa.

    Itís convenient for Rodgers to blame his board, but the Celtc hierarchy might also ask their manager why he didnít push harder for the player if he really wanted him.

    I think Celtc miscalculated massively, and assumed they held all the cards.

    I took Rodgers' quote at the time in the same way I regarded Lennon's comments last week about not having much room left in the budget ie a negotiating tactic rather than a statement of fact.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    The EEN said that we had banked £2.75 mln so. I assume that is what we got after st mirren got their 30%
