I would like to say a great big thank you to our ex striker Garry O'Connor, :applause::applause:

Last month I wrote to all of our ex-players asking if they would like to make a donation as an auction prize for our Hibs.net longest day sportsman's breakfast http://www.hibs.net/message/showthread.php?t=176874 and today an envelope arrived with a match worn and signed Scotland v Macedonia top dated Sept 5th 2009, a Birmingham away strip signed by the whole 1st team squad, and 10 signed photographs. What a great gesture from a great guy :not worth:not worth

There wasnt a signed contract to join us in the summer in there was there?

I know there are mixed views on here, but if he is willing to join on our wage structure we should be making a move. We will lose Benji in the summer and think either Stokes or Riordan will go too, I would guess. Nish really has to go too, if we are serious about improving.

GOC on form is a real handful up front and will def score goals.

Ditto, but they must get hundereds of these type of requests, and I dont suppose they can keep everybody sweet, and certain charities may be the ones that they support. :agree:

:cool2: well done Garry

off the main topic - would love to see him and stokes as a front 2...if we got back riordens wages then it would make football and financial sense (even if it was only a way of him getting back playing in the shop window)

:agree:Well done Garry but also a massive well done and huge thanks to H18SRY for the amout of work you're putting in yet again mate. I can always rely on you mate. Last year, we would have struggled to make the 10k without you organising the Sportsmans breakfast and yet again, you're pulling it out the bag this year.

I'm still waiting to hear back from a few football and golf clubs to see what I can get for the auction.

lose? i think the phrase you are looking for is ''get rid'' the guys attitude stinks and has never been a case of when riordan was a greeting face but atleast he could get goals and win games.



sorry to change subject, great gesture from garry. club signed strips are ten a dozen but i am suprised he gave you a matchworn scotland top! top man!:top marks
