    If you were given a choice of either...you would take Naismith then right??

    Naismith had a descent career ok...but lets not get carried away.
    Mid table epl team,then relegated epl team.
    Even Joleon Lescott managed better than that.
    Naismith had a good career and has won 6 major honours. So has Griffiths, however he has won 11 major honours and by the time heís Naismiths age thatíll be at least 15. Heís also scored not far off double the amount of goals Naismith has and is 4 years younger. I know what career Iíd have rather had and itís not one spent battling it out mid table in a hugely over rated league.

    I would also take Griffiths over Naismith every time, whether thatís in their current guise or both at their peak.

    Spot on Callum you beat me to it.

    You have to ask yourself given the choice if you could add Griffithís or Naismith to the current HIBS squad which one would you pick to improve the squad?

    To me it is a no brainer OK he has looked out of sorts this season but Griffithís every time.

    Even in his current unfit state I would take him in a heartbeat 😁

    Griffith's over Naismith evertime for me.

    It's also a bit simplistic to just say he has done well in England therefore he is the better player. Charlie Adam has had a decent career in England but I don't think you'd find many people who would say he is a better player than Scott Brown.

    To be fair Naismiths career goal record was playing in the EPL against Man United and Arsenal, Griffiths is playing in the SPL against Partick Thistle and Dundee. A bit like comparing an orange with an apple.
    Having said that if offered one of the two for the Hibs team it would be SLG every single time.

    Charlie Adam was much better than Scott Brown, isnít currently though. Only in my opinion of course😉

    At Hibs right now id prefer Griffiths because he guarantees goals when fit.

    Naismith is probably a better all round player though. And has clearly had a better career.

    Dunno why you mention Lescott, was a very good player for years. His titles show that.

    Hope no one shows Naismith this thread before the Derby, it would be hung on his peg on the day.

    The thing with all players is, if he is deemed your player he is a world beater (Griffiths), if he's the enemy (Naismith) he's a legs gone duffer!!!

    Lescott was an over-rated terrible player.
    Thats why he rarely got game time.

    Point being that in EPL granted theres many great players....But there a huge amount of rubbish players getting paid ridiculous salaries.

    Lescott played 31 games in City's first title winning season. 160 games in 5 years for city and 140 for Everton in 3 years where they finished top 6. What on earth are you talking about?

    Strange choice to pick him out. I'm sure most city fans would tell you he was solid during their title win. Played plenty of games.

    He was certainly no world beater but that comment is cack. He played in some excellent sides for a good few years.

    He had a 2nd job planting explosives in the twin towers, maybe he was just a bit tired when you saw him?
