Eeek! What we going to do on Saturday?! Deeks up by himself? Play Galbraith on the left wing as a sort of striker in a similar position to what Deeks played last season?

Trakys to start alongside Deek or Deek on his own in a 4-5-1

We had to wait for the cigarette smoke around him to clear away, it interfered with the scan results.

Looks like we will see just how good or important Nish is for us in the next couple of weeks. Hope he is back in time for the yams game and banging in the goals.

Of topic but forget about 4-4-2. Even if all our strikers are fit get ready for 4-5-1 from now on.

Maybe we do need to look to the 19's. If Byrne was that good would he have been loaned out?

I am going to go out on a limb and say no. I would love him to be the next O'Conner but I have to say I am becoming board with the 'bring him back' chat.

I will go out on a limb and say that if he had half a chance at this time he would still be at Easter Road. I acknowledge the fact some come in later than others, but would Yogi have really put him out if he did not have a chance?

Has he done anything since his initial goals in the bottom division of the Scottish leagues?

kurtis has scored 6 goals in total for east fife so far this season

and the reason yogi didnt give him a chance is because he didnt get on with him and refused to play him! there has been many many posts on this subject and its getting very repetitive!

Wotherspiniesta

Why?

You think KB, who was a major part of our treble winning under 19 side has no future at our club after seeing him play about 35 minutes of competitive football for us.

I'm not saying he's going to be the next Wayne Rooney but you think a guy who's barely kicked a ball for us should be written off at 20 years old? Thank god you're not in charge.

So just tell us you're on the wind-up and let it go.

Maybe he was loaned out because the other strikers we had at the time were ahead of him, and the situation has now changed.

I saw quite a few of the u19 double season games and imo you are talking pish on this thread. And in answer to one of your other posts, yes, I'd play him ahead of Nish now.

Under 19's - I have to be honest, whilst I would like to see them do well, I could not give a flying what they won. I am interested in the first team. So I put that comment in the bin.

You are missing the point - there is a reason he has only played 35 minutes of football for us – do you not see that?

Just was well I am not in charge or your namesake, who has been given too much of a chance, would be out on loan with him.

Hibs knew they were getting rid of stokes and we still decided to loan him out.

Under 19's please see my other post - irrelevant. To many people want to live on this under 19's chat, its boring.

Simple question where is he now, and why????????????

Play him over Nish - typical .net post, a guy who is one of the top 10 scorers in this league V's a guy who has never really played in this league - and you would choose which one - have a word.

Byrne over Nish - there is only one person on this thread taking pash, sorry to say it, its you.

If you think that then you have shown yourself up for a huge lack of knowledge about football.

Can you name any manager in the SPL that would choose a loan striker in the next to bottom league in Scotland (that has scored 50% of goals against a team which is getting relegated to the lowest league in Scotland / maybe Britain in terms of standard) over a striker who is playing in the premier league, has done pretty much his whole career and scored a respectable number of goals in doing so.

Come on, its your chance, one game to win as a manager, who would you choose?

As much as you may slate Yogi he know million times more about football than, me, you or anyone else on here.

He will have played with hundreds of different players, against thousands and managed a good few. Regardless a player is always going to be able to see a player.

If KB gets a first team place every week at Hibs I will eat my hat.

Kurtis was very lightweight, and from what I saw, uncomfortable when the oppisition got in his face.

6 goals in the lower leagues suggest that he has learned to deal with that, and that it was the right move for him.

Out of order comment, wishing injury on one of our players. Agree with some of the other comments that we missed him today, dont think it was any coincidence that Riordan was non existent / had a poor game when Nish was not about.

Trakys looks like a player that a club would panic sign at the end of a transfer window because he is sitting at home and does not have a club.....wait a minute!

The fact of the matter is he's not good enough plain and simple.
He's outstayed his welcome and he's just another hurtado the tank that's murder, can't control a ball and never mind header it when he's 6 ft odd.
Somethings wrong with the support if they want someone like that in the team
he's just not good enough
sorry if I offended anyone by wat I sed before but come on do any of you actually want him in a hibs jersey, he should of been binned a long time ago.

So if your not good enough at your job you'd be happy with people saying they hoped you'd get hit by a bus so you couldn't come back then aye?

The Hurtado comparison is utter balls. By any measure Nish has a more than acceptable strike rate and is one of the all time top scorers in the SPL, despite never playing for the Old Firm.

But then hey, who ever needed facts to get in the way of booing our own players, assuming of course you are actually a fan. I find it hard to believe that any fan of the team would wish a career ending injury on one of our players, particularly one that is a fan himself. Hell I wouldn't wish such a thing on anyone full stop.

Has he been sacked? No, he's been given chance after chance when he's utter mince.

His top strike rate, don't make me laugh he won't score for Ages then puts a few past some low rankin team.

So called hibs fans should realise he's mince and stop bein in denial just because he's a hibs fan. It's irrelevant that he's a hibs fan.

The fact is he's mince and there's a reason he won't play for the old firm, and it's coz he's not good enough. He's had it far too easy everytime a see him play it looks to me as if he's just pikin up a wage.
When he eventually does get the boot heel be playin for a team in the 1st div

One. Which is only two less than Riordan? Yet he never takes any stick. Fact is Nish plays a role for Hibs, and always has done that he was never built for - target man. We were lost up front without him this week, and if he is out this week it will again prove significant imo.

How many as anybody else scored likes? Riordan 3, Hogg 2, Nish 1? How many goals and good opportunties have our midfield set up so far this season? Yet it's Hogg and Nish that get their regular multi page bashings. Whats Miller, De Graaf, Rankin or any of them done so far this season?

To blame Nish for our lack of goals is a nonsense. I'd be looking at our midfield for that.

You’d look at the midfield for more goals before looking to your striker?

One. Which is only two less than Riordan? Yet he never takes any stick. Fact is Nish plays a role for Hibs, and always has done that he was never built for - target man. We were lost up front without him this week, and if he is out this week it will again prove significant imo.

What is he then if not a target man?

I'm looking at the midfield to support the forwards more, and yes, when was the last time our midfield chipped in with a few goals?

How many goals did we score on Saturday with the much maligned Nish nowhere to be seen? Is Deeks hopeless as well now?

I will go out on a limb and say that if he had half a chance at this time he would still be at Easter Road. I acknowledge the fact some come in later than others, but would Yogi have really put him out if he did not have a chance?

Has he done anything since his initial goals in the bottom division of the Scottish leagues?

Think you'll find that East Fife are in division 2!!! They're my 2nd Scottish team:grr::grr:

can you clarify what you mean from "initial goals" too given that he is still banging them in fairly regularly ie last weekend against Dumbarton? What else do you need/want a striker to do?

Maybe he can take penalties too which is more than any of the huddies we have can do.:agree:

Edit: oh, aye and LTYF:agree::bye:

Obviously not paying too much attention to OUR youngsters. Maybe its Thomsons job to check out the youngsters eh?

Surely you've got to look to your strikers to score the majority of the goals and hope the midfield chip in with a few as well. Not just blame the midfield and the striker that is actually capable of scoring regularly for not covering the other guys arse?!

I'm not saying Nish has been amazing for us by any means recently, I just object to the over the top level of criticism that is thrown his way, in a team where hardly anyone is playing well.

Aye, it'd be nice for him to score more, but then for him to score more it would help if the midfield were getting better delivery to the front two, if the wide players got forward more etc etc. It's all part of the same problem, I doubt you could swap out Nish for any other striker we have on the books and suddenly see a torrent of goals.

do you see deek fluff as many chances as nish?
yes, the midfield should be more supportive of the play but what else can they do when the great nish fluffs every chance he gets. lets face it our midfield isnt a scoring midfield so you have to rely on your strikers.
when nish first came he was meant to be a great finisher, but for me am still waiting to see him bein a great finisher.

I agree with that and also that just 'cos Byrne's scored 6 or 7 goals in the 2nd Division doesn't mean he's the answer either. I'm sure if Nish dropped a few divisions he could score 6 or 7 goals as well.

Exactly. If Byrne has any chance of playing for us then that's what he needs to at least be doing at the levels he's currently playing at. Beyond that what do we have? Trakys, who seems to be woefully unfit and Duffy who is still injured and yet to kick a ball for us. We currently have no option but to play Nish, so we may as well get behind the guy, for the folk that go along itching to shout abuse at him before he's even done anything, booing away every time he touchs the ball, how is that making things better? Is it his fault we only have 2 strikers available for selection? No!

Yes, Riordan has fluffed quite a few as well, including on Saturday.

I still believe Riordan is a one of those that is a scorer of great goals but not a great goalscorer.

Nish is neither by the way.

Initial - his goals in his first game. Does that not make 4 past the bottom of the league 2ND DIVISION TEAM.

Re Wanting and needing a striker to do you are missing the point. You are stating the obvious when saying scoring goals, my point relates to the standard of opposition.

Re Thomson having the final say in youngsters going out on loan - I would very much doubt it.

Re your Yam chat - whatever. I would be a pretty crap Yam if i spent every weekend going to watch hibs play.

I'm sorry I went too far about him gettin injured.

If ur not good enough at your job you get sacked!
Has he been sacked? No, he's been given chance after chance when he's utter mince.

His top strike rate, don't make me laugh he won't score for Ages then puts a few past some low rankin team.

So called hibs fans should realise he's mince and stop bein in denial just because he's a hibs fan. It's irrelevant that he's a hibs fan.

The fact is he's mince and there's a reason he won't play for the old firm, and it's coz he's not good enough. He's had it far too easy everytime a see him play it looks to me as if he's just pikin up a wage.
When he eventually does get the boot heel be playin for a team in the 1st div

Im a genuine , not so called Hibs fan, and I think Colin Nish is a decent player who gives a bit more than some others and has a respectable strike rate for a guy who only cost us £100k or so. I am not in denial and I don't care if he is a Hibs fan.

Opinions eh............. who'd have them?

:top marksCost us next to nothing, probably not on very high wages, scores regularly. i've said it before he is a match for Kyle at Hearts, they are similar players but I think you'll find Nish has a better scoring rate. He also wont give the manager any bother, gets on with it and never moans about some of the utter pish shouted at him on a Saturday afternoon by people who are meant to be on his side.
If he is the 9th highest scorer in SPL history that is an amazing achievement by someone outside the OF who, if you listen to some on here, is meant to be rubbish.

Yup, I remember folk actually wanting Kyle over Nish. Kyle is a Nish that doesn't score as much and is as robust as a cracked porcelain vase.

Agreed we did miss him on Saturday. Kenneth probably could not believe his luck. Not Riordan's fault he was put in a role which is impossible for him to play because of the injury list up front.
