    Hibs are good

    We just are. Talented squad. New lease of life under Hecky and the players are playing for him. The future looks bright.

    Agreed. The little worry I had initially was how would we fit in Scotty next season if playing a flat 4-4-2 but he's shown he's willing to change the shape in the last couple of games. If we can somehow turn Omeonga( fairly optimistic) and Sparky(challenging) into either loans or perm signings next year we are laughing. Boyle and Porto back and a few smart signings plus a City loanee with hamstring problems(Ilic at NAC maybe) then we should be ready to roll.

    Rocky/Gk
    SDG/New RB
    New CB or Spector if all goes well/Daz
    Porto/Hanlon
    Lewis/Mackie
    Slivka/Milligan
    Omeonga/Ilic/new Cm(i like the look of Lawson at Livi)
    Allan/Mallan
    Boyle/Horgan
    Sparky/Shaw
    Kamberi/Another CF/inside left.

    Add in the youngsters.

    That's a very good SPL squad imo.

    Exactly. Gauld and Agyepong coming back after the international break too. We are threadbare at the moment but just shows you the potential of the squad.

    Agyepong? I hadnít saw anything about him coming back. Good news if so but Iíll not get my hopes up.

    Think we might see quite a few new signings to add a bit more quality and physicality ....think we will be very fortunate to keep McNulty think his form here will.see him earn a move somewhere down south where he can get regular game time and.more cash ..though suppose what we set as our priorities in signings !! Think we could easily look for 3 new.defenders, at least 2 midfielders and 2 forwards ..oh and a keeper ...

    He's been training. I thought he might have made it into the squad yesterday.

    Agree, wouldn't surprise me if he goes the whole season without playing again.

    Fingers crossed then. His pace could really give us another dimension.

    Remember the lost guy D.Johnston

    I personally feel the squad is very light and lacks balance but Heckingbottom is showing real promise in terms of finding ways to get results in difficult circumstances. The team is very much transitioning from the post 2016/SJM/Efe era so if PH can achieve a positive end to the season before getting the opportunity to change personnel then he deserves an awful lot of credit. As does our recruitment team for bringing in McNulty, who has transformed us as an attacking threat.

    My only note of caution gnawing away at me is memories of Calderwood, during another post-success era, winning 5 in a row near the start of his reign and believing at the time that we were on the up again. That was very much a false dawn so we do really need a bigger sample size to make a fair judgement of our prospects under the Heck.

    Calderwood's run came straight after losing 5 on the trot but you're correct, 5 games is a tiny sample size

    He's a Man City loanee at NAC Breda. There's three of them Fernandes, Ilic and Palmer-Brown. If they follow the same path as Barker and Agyepong then I'd presume we would get offered one of them for next year. I've done the obligatory youtube scouting and he impressed me the most.

    Although apparently NAC and City have had a falling out with the players being injury prone(sounds familiar). I don't know if that will present a knock on issue for us.

    The squad I posted above was more of a potential one for next season.

    Of course it's always possible to compare anything if you are comparing with a 'what if. But I think there is no comparison between the two. Hecky wants to be here and is an intelligent and as far as I can see a proper manager/coach. He will do well for us and I hope we do well for him too.

    Come to think of it, they both look quite similar ... I wish you hadn't said that.
