    Mallanís free kicks

    Almost always hits the target with them . His ratio of free kicks to goals must be the highest I have ever seen . Talking to a fellow fan at the game yesterday and we both agreed on him being one of the best we have seen . Yes Deeks could score them as could Sauzee . Griffiths could fairly crack them in and going further back ,so could Joe Mcbride jn but is Mallan the best .

    All the above all fine exponents of the art.

    Mallan could potentially be the best.

    Lenny described yesterdays strike as being ď world class ď on HIBS TV

    From a personal point of view I am just glad that Lenny has told Horgan to leave the free kicks to Mallon.

    Heís excellent at set pieces! Great free-kick and a fantastic corner kick delivery for SDGís goal.

    Everytime we get a free-kick now, Iíve never felt more confident that we are going to score. Teams must surely be aware that we possess a great threat in these situations now.

    And with Agyepong, Boyle and Horgan running at them, opposing defenders will have a very tough decision to make.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    My dad had just finished moaning that Mallan was taking it as it suited a left footer. ďHeíll never score from there with his right footĒ

    7 goals for Hibs, 7 goals outside of the box. Absolutely ridiculous.

    That's a good point

    That's what made it so good and probably what impressed Lennon.
    It was brilliant, going away from the goalkeeper at speed.

    Is Mallan the best?....Yes

    I can't think of any player in our history, or playing elsewhere for that matter, who scores free kicks with such regularity. An incredible skill and weapon to have and will get us out many a pickle in the coming months I'm sure.

    Mallan has brought an extra (and more dangerous) element to Hibs play - an ability to hit the back of the net at will from distance.
    Neither McGinn or McGeouch could offer us this. Mallan is compensating for their loss Big Time!

    I can recall at least 3 goals McGinn scored from outside the box, there are probably more

    He did indeed score a few good goals. But not regularly. He never scored enough for the power he had in that left foot.

    Obviously he did a lot more that Mallan doesnít do. But if we can get the right players in behind Mallan he should be looking at 15-20 goals this year.

    Mallan struggles to get around the pitch but given his shooting and free kick prowess he is more than making up for his shortfalls. It's great when we are struggling and he decides to fire one into the top bin.
    Could have done with him in the Championship years when a scoreable free kick generally meant the ball driven into the wall or skied.

    The engine of McGinn and the shooting boots of Mallan would be some player
