The big kick off is 4 weeks on Saturday and the club is no further forward from this time last week. I understand we now have an assistant in but that means nothing with the squad we have. Every other teams are signing players.

I accept people are going to reply and see give them a chance but this is serious.

A team needs to be in place now to train and get gelled plus play pre season games etc. Is this another year of rubbish ahead? Are players turning Hibs down on wages?

Hibs fans are paying the highest prices in the league so this needs to get sorted straight away.

You obviously haven't read Cats Post or don't believe it There is still plenty time but agree we need to start getting these deals over the line so players can start to gel together in Training and get game time

There is not plenty of time though and everyday is a day less. If on Stubbs first day he had said we will not be getting any players in for at least 10 days this place would have gone into meltdown.

The season ended in May and were in July with no players in.

By 'this place' do you mean 'I'?

It's not news that we are behind in our preparations for the forthcoming season. This is entirely due to the catastrophic collapse last term. I think the club will be aware what's needed.

You might get peslters for espousing this view, but I seriously worry about the lack of signings, and wonder why it is so too.

I agree, the lack of movement is a big worry for me too.
I can see the scenario where were a fortnight to ten days before our competitive kick off and nobody has signed.
I hope I'm wrong.

Calm down, we just skelped Vale of Leithen and kept the ball on the deck for the majority of the game. Also, we have the new John Collins breaking through in young Max Todd. That coupled with Liam Craig staying and Jason Cummings banging the goals in already - we don't need to worry about signings....:wink:

In all seriousness, check the transfers thread. It appears as though a few posters that I regard as 'in the know' are confident of 3 or 4 signings in due course - I believe that info.

I was a bit jumpy myself a few weeks back but I'm a lot more relaxed now than I was after relegation. I'm even at peace with the new kit and contemplating buying it.

Onwards and upwards... :aok:

Ok plenty wasn't the right word but if cat is right and we have four signed then they will be in line for game time at weekend and by then others may be in pipeline ,so we would be getting there and yes we all know we are behind where we should be but we have to deal with that and see where we are oncefirst league game starts .The cups I think he will experiment with team as it's all about getting back up this season

Lack of movement? Do you know there's no movement? I'm sure there's a ton of work being done on the recruitment side. Stubbs said it was about quality rather than quantity. Let's see what happens. No need to panic. Let the new management team get on with their job.

I'm sure we all want to see new players arriving ASAP but there is a limit to how quickly these things can be done. Yes, it isn't great that we seem to be leaving it late (again) but I'm sure there's lots of work going on in the background.

I've been happy enough just to sit back and let Stubbs and Dempster to their thing when bringing in players but I'm starting to get a bit concerned that still no one is in the door so close to the new season. The team won't have time to gel at this rate, it all seems very unorganised.

It's not "the Hibs' way". It's the way the board have done things for the past 7-10 years. It's one of the things that needs to change about the club.

It's one very good reason why change at the top of the club has to go a lot farther, deeper, and faster than it has thus far.

There is a world of difference between running a football club in an efficient and business-like manner, and running a football club as if it were just another business.

The first has a really good chance of bringing success.

The second lands us right where we are now.

Back shopping in the bargain basement.

I understand the OP's concerns. This is the first season that I can recall when so many players were required so late in the day. Not only this, but any new player coming in will be expected to hit the ground running and be under severe pressure to deliver. Promotion is not a bonus, or a choice, it's a ruthless singular mission. The collective mind set must be to out perform The Rangers and Hearts over a whole season and remain focused and energised when dealing with a few banana skins, lower profile teams, on freezing, wet January nights, where every dropped point is a lift for our fiercest rivals. It's also a big, BIG, ask of Alan Stubbs to coach, motivate and shape a bunch of strangers in a few short weeks and over the course of 1 season into a title winning/promotion team.

HibbySpurs
08-07-2014, 11:11 AM
At this time I'm happy to agree with the quality v quantity mantra and to be fair if Stubbs is looking at "quality" some of these guys will have offers on the table from Premiership clubs and convincing them to come to Hibs in a lower league even though we're a bigger club may be tricky at times.....

However as each day passes then concerns will start to grow and I guess we would all liked to have seen at least acouple of decent signings through the door by now......

Regardless of the quality though the next 10 days or so are crucial for getting players in and into training with the rest of the squad, if nothing has happened by the end of next week I'd start to be very concerned.....


I dont think it'll come to that though :aok:

Mark79
08-07-2014, 11:20 AM
Biggest thing for me is the pre season training bit. We need guys in that are getting prepared like the rest of them for what will be a tough season.

I cant understand why a goalie hasnt beem lined up quicker. We all new williams was away ages ago and they obviously weren't keen on murdoch so why wasnt a goalie lined up. Its a key position and probably the most important one to gel with his back 4 and inspire confidence in the rest of the team as a consequence.

As much as it is painful not to see us sign ANYBODY... I really think that to get a new spine of the team (GK, CH, CM, ST) with just that extra bit of quality we're just going to have to wait a bit longer. If we can get these guys paraded at the same time though I would be delighted. A real signal of intent for the season.

Actions have to be taking place behind the scenes.

Announcements are different.

I do agree about the GK situation - surely if Marsella is still involved he would have a shopping list - we knew Williams was going for months.

There is time but like others have mentioned Stubbs is going to have to do a great job getting them to gel and start well as we have a tough first few games - including a derby. Lost that and the pressure already mounts.

Stop trying to be the hero, i meant no further forward in terms of getting confirmed signed contract from players. If you need to understand more then the current amount signed is zero.

In terms of the club working toward this then im not stupid enough to think they are not but actions speak louder than words. Lets make some signings please.

As frustrated as I am by the lack of transfer activity, I dont think you can say that is true. Stubb's will have put his own style on the team and I imagine his ideas and way of working are hugely different to Butchers, and hes already had a chance to assess some of the younger guys. Only time will tell if that ultimately delivers on the pitch, but its all part of the 'rebuilding' process. I fully expect us to make 4-5 signings this week, which I imagine will be around half the players we end up bringing in. With around 4 weeks to go until the league season starts, Id say thats a good number to work with initially.

The one hope I do have is both Stubbs and Doolan have contacts down south.

The hard part is getting players from down south to come and live up here.

Doolan I also hear is a good coach so will probably get more out of what we had last season.

I am hoping we bring in a x2 GK's

A RB, CB, LB

Wide player, ACM, playmaker (who can run games and can pick a final pass)

Strikers x 2 or ideally 3

Also leadership - a decent signing / club captain would help - though can't see this happening.

Lot's needed - will we go for it ? or just bring in a few to supplement what we had ?

Just to set my head at peace, apart from Boyd and Miller to the hun (who despite their age I reckon will score a few) could you give me a list of who else has been bought by the teams that will be our main competitors (hopefully) next season? Ones that you feel we should have signed.

I go by actions, no annoucements have been made so to me the squad rebuild has not yet started.

Actions are ongoing however.

In an earlier post you said we were no further forward than a week ago, that is simply wrong.

You are implying nobody is bothering their backside, nothing could be further from the truth.

Ive not got the time nor the inclination to list them for you mate and regardless of what you think of the quality of these signings, these teams have their signings bedded in early and featuring in pre season games. Off top of my head, both Darren McGregor (der hun) and Neil Alexander (yams) are better than what we currently have imo...

That would be devious even for Hibs, surely.

If you sign a player, you tell the supporters you've done so. What possible reasonable reason can there be for signing players but not telling anyone?

The obsession of posters who must know what is going on at the club is rather strange. And if they don't know, this equates to nothing is happening. Weirdos!!!

I'll go with what Stubbs said on Saturday after VoL match. Plenty of players available and want to come. He is desperate not to make any mistakes in getting the wrong players in. Why not let the guy get his job done.

Yip, he sure does.

We are all interested in who we are signing, I am no different.

As I'm sure you know Hibs have signed players previously and waited to announce them.

My take is they want to announce a group at once, for maximum effect. Personally I would announce them at a gap of two day intervals.

Falkirk announced five signings one day last week, does all the doubters on here believe that they all happened to sign at exactly the same time?

It's understandable people being anxious to find out who we are signing. It seems like ages ago we were relegated and released almost a full team with not one replacement brought in yet. And the fact that our challengers have all added to their teams is not helping folks patience. We all want the same thing, an improved Hibs team that can actually compete for this league.

The big kick off is 4 weeks on Saturday and the club is no further forward from this time last week. I understand we now have an assistant in but that means nothing with the squad we have. Every other teams are signing players.

I accept people are going to reply and see give them a chance but this is serious.

A team needs to be in place now to train and get gelled plus play pre season games etc. Is this another year of rubbish ahead? Are players turning Hibs down on wages?

Hibs fans are paying the highest prices in the league so this needs to get sorted straight away.

The kit was leaked and the club announced it the next day. Now its been leaked that players have signed lets hope this has the same effect.

Just because you know a little more than us does not mean we cant state what it looks like from outside the club. I don't know any other club except maybe Blackpool (after the post on here today) that have not made a summer signing!

The whole situation we find ourselves in is completely unnaceptable
Being relegated-unacceptable
Taking 2 weeks to sack Butcher-unnaceptable
Not having any new players- unnaceptable
As bad as things were around a month ago, things have already improved we've got a new CEO, a new manager and assistant, a new head of football operations and hopefully a new vision for the club. Everyone would like to have all our transfer business done by now but it was never going to be the case when the decision to sack Butcher was made.
There's never been a more important time to get the right players in than now, bringing in 2 or 3 players quickly to appease the fans may well have ended with us having the wrong players. As frustraited as I am with the position we find ourselves in, we must give Stubbs the time to get the right players in that will have us challenging up the top end of the league. Hopefully starting this week.

The lift will come at the end of the week. I don't think the players you list and more importantly the circumstances in which they signed are analogous here. Previous signings did seem like last minute fifth choice scrambling for anyone to sign. Doesn't feel that way this time to me at least. It does seem that it is taking ages and we are all dying for news of new faces. Maybe we are all just impatient for progress?

IIRC we also signed Thomson and McGivern on continuation, Craig on a pre-contract and Vine and Tudur-Jones from other clubs all relatively early in the close season - plus the young guy from Hearts (who looked to me like a promising winger played out of position). All looked like decent signing and all were done in good time for the new season, but they seem to be disregarded when we discuss the club's signing policy.

Am not saying I am happy that we still haven't signed anyone but this isn't the week that the Transfer window closes so if Cat and Brooster are right and we do bring in several signings this week we still have time to bring in more .I am taking into account all the Turmoil and change in the past month and the fact Stubbs is only a few weeks in the job and his assistant only arrived on Saturday .So you. Would expect signings this week and next
but yes agree we have had a tendency to drag things out but that was when Petrie was negotiator .Its now Leeann so she may want to wait and please us with a clutch of quality signings announced on the same day .was she not due to attend the Four In the Hand Supporters meeting this week with a question and answer session ? She would have to indicate something positive at that event if no announcement before then .

I don't know why it's such a big deal that ST sales are low. If we have a successful season then there will be more money through the turnstiles from walk-ups.

I also don't know why people want to see signings in quantity. That's now how Mowbray did it and that didn't work out so badly.

Our problems in recent years have been getting players to play to their potential and as a team - it seems to me our coaching set-up is pretty damn good. Worth a mention I thought.

It's 2 weeks today since we appointed a young, ambitious & intelligent manager to take us back to the top. He's made huge progress already & made several statements regarding how he's going to move forward, the most important of which is he's not going to sign every player stuck in front of him by agents. Now either you buy into what AS is saying or effectively you say he's lying to us. I trust AS, do you?

Brog, I don't see anyone saying they they dont trust AS. Every fan has a right to be concerned given the zero signings up until today.

Now that one has been confirmed lets hope there are many more to follow but FFS everyone has a right to post what ever they want within reason!!!!

I am also concerned at the sluggish pace of new signings and I check the web about every 40 mins throughout the day, checking for news of some class signings, as I am sure most of you do too?

But obviously this season is not only huge in importance for the club, it is a huge task as well! There is no getting away from the enormity of the task of getting promoted at the first attempt. We won't do that with the wrong players, its no time to waste time and money on merely shirt fillers. We just need to trust in AS and hope he has a master plan, we don't have a choice really.

But equally we defo won't get promoted with no players, so come on AS, pull yer finger out fella! ;)

I would never dream of stopping or censoring anyone's comments or thoughts, that would go against every principle I hold dearly. You however started this thread by stating we were no further forward than a week ago when we obviously are/were. We've made a statement re season tickets, not necessarily to everyone's liking, we've launched a new strip, also controversial, we've appointed an assistant head coach, we've effectively resigned last season's captain who is making hugely positive noises about the new regime, we've won our 1st game, featuring 2 trialists & several u-20 players who never previously featured & today we made our 1st signing. By any standards that's significant progress & I have no doubt we'll see more visible signs of progress in the next few days. I look forward to seeing you starting a thread acknowledging that progress.

Well said I too need to take a chill pill we all want everything right now. Thats the world we live in.

Just remember LD is dealing with agents who I would imagine stretch her patience to the limit trying to get that wee bit extra for their player.

I do agree with Brog you can surley see massive changes are taking place within the club and the players we all crave will be here soon.
Will we like them thats a different discussion. ....;)

Let's call her Leeanne.
We already have Jack and Victor in the shape of Rod and Sir Tom.
And we already have a Tam running the Bendix.
Let's give Stubbsy a Bowie cut, call him Boaby and stick him behind the bar in Behind The Goals.
All we need is a signing with a wooden leg (better than what we have though) and one from the sub-continent to stick in the Albion Bar and we've got a series.
Has to be better than the Fitba'...

Latest from Stubbs re: transfers: -

Stubbs, who earlier this week made Scotland U21 defender David Gray his first signing, is hoping to add further to his squad before the start of the season.
“We have actually made contact with a few players and there are offers on the table,” he said. "For me now it’s the most frustrating part of it now because we’re waiting for answers, whether it’s going to be a yes or a no.
“Unfortunately, it’s out of my hands. I just hope they are impressed by the club, the stadium, the facilities at the training ground, my vision for the football club to move forward and most importantly being successful."

I hope he has got a plan B, sounds to me they cannot get the targets they want for what ever reason, both Stubbs and LD said there would be signings this week i.e more than one. I think Stubbs is finding out just how hard it is to attract the right player to Hibs and before you all start shouting about giving the guy a chance, I am, I hope he does really well and gets the players he wants but in reality we are skint and he will need to find one or two little gems that have possibly been over looked by other clubs.

I'm a bit worried that Stubbs is only "hoping" to add players before the kick off day.
How long do we wait for offers to be accepted?
Most of the other sides don' t seem to have to wait. They just do the deal there and then do they not?
But it's not the Hibs way as Crazyhibby said.

Sorry, but I'll reserve judgement on all this positivity stuff until we've actually bought a few more players in. The players that Hearts, Sevco, Falkirk etc have signed will presumably all be training with them now, ready for the start of the new season which is not far away. We have only signed 1 player so far, and we need a lot more, more, I would suggest, than either Hearts or Sevco. Now I know we're all behind Leeann Dempster and Stubbs, that goes without saying, and we've been assured that Petrie will keep his nose well and truly out of it, bringing in semi-decent players is a lot harder than just shirt-filling, but yet again we seem to be the last club to bring in new players. I just can't believe that Petrie hasn't got something to do with it, and paranoid or not, I'll continue to think that as long as he remains at the club.

I did find Stubbs interview today refreshing though as he said he binned the two trialists because they only did well, they weren't quality. In the past that's exactly what we've signed.

Could really do with getting a ****ing move on getting the quality he's looking for though.

me thinks its a two year plan , he will sign three or four players mix them in with youth and hope we scrape into the play offs. but the following season will be the big push. we will just need to put up with this division for at least two seasons. if he fails he will be on his bike at the end of the second season. then we will start again.

I want players to be signed NOW. I don't want players that will not make the team better and will need to be 'disposed of' when they are found to be not 'fit for purpose'. The process of due diligence can take time. If only there was a way to quicken it. Alan Stubbs has said that he is actively looking for players but they must add to making our team a better team. There is still time for quality players to be signed. We will all be watching this transfer window with great interest.

Never mind the two year plan and we will push on, if Hibs don't come up in one season the crowds next season will be about 5000, STF will just have to put his hand in his very wealthy pocket and pay the fans back for years of loyalty.

sorry mate he aint going to put any money in. also the crowds will drop this season when we have our usual slump , but i think the following season we will kick on and then the crowds will pick up, also the hearts will still be in the championship as well cause they have no chance of going up to.

So why the hell is the new season just aroond the corner and we have signed the square root of ****all??


:agree:

You are a complete bed wetter, the window does not close until the end of August, and just because the exact same scenario has happened over the last so many years, and we are at the lowest ebb i can remember in a long time.

Why should the same thing happen again that's happened before?

Exactly.
People had a right good chuckle at Barry Anderson and the "all is barry" thing with Them but loads of posters on here seem to be using the same analogy for Hibs situation.

Then the people who are worried and a bit panicky get abuse and/or told to calm down.

*Anderson is still a terrible journo

Genius master plan that, sign those monkeys off the new Planet of the Apes film! If they can be trained to ride a horse whilst firing a macine gun, playing championship football will be a piece of piss for them! They will be cheap, fit and strong, plus they won't care that the new home shirt hasn't got white sleeves and looks a bit rubbish. :D

Pay what we can afford, Dempster can't produce money out of thin air.

Now, if only we had sold a couple of thousand more season tickets things might be different.

Many on here suggest the delay in signing players is because we are waiting for 'quality' players, and have to ensure they are of such .'quality'

This is a self defeating argument, as 'quality' players are easily identifiable, albeit out of our wage bracket,.

What the case really is, is that we are waiting to see what 'leftovers ' are available, and hoping to sign the least worst of them that we can afford .

Sorry, but that is the reality without the positive spin.

what's the odds on a statement coming within the next week from the stubbster, declaring that he's evaluated the squad and thinks we already have the players needed

How about the club do something to encourage long suffering fans to renew?? Ive coughed up ST money year after year on the promise it will be spent on quality players? ? How's that worked out for us???
Blind loyalty is running dry for a lot of Hibbies just now. ..understandably.

I agree with what AS and LD are trying to achieve and if some of the poster are to be believed offers have been made and lets face it if you were in the position these players are in you wouldn't want to rush into a decision they may be talking it over with family friends looking at housing areas schools etc before signing maybe theynwant to see how AS wants us to play and take in todays game then sign.

I just posted elsewhere that there is little likelihood of any overspend, in the form of cash we don't generate, being given to the manager while there is a proposed takeover on the cards.

Last week was a disappointment in that talk of 4/5 players arriving did not materialise. David Gray is, of course, a welcome new face, but it's worrying that many of last seasons failures remain and, at this stage, without new blood, will likely form the bulk of our 1st 11 and be expected to deliver promotion-winning performances. I truly hope that this turns out not to be the case and that Alan Stubbs really will bring in the quality and characters required. I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling a little anxious at this late, late stage. Getting new players in so late in the day will bring it's own problems re: gelling and adapting. Hitting the ground running is not an option.

You are of course correct, getting a little anxious!

But they have signed players, they just haven't announced them.

Nearly a week further on and only Gray announced. As I said at the weekend, I have asked agents/journos and within the club and no one knows of these signed/unannounced players.. Are you sure there are players signed Brooster?

It's a simple ploy. State there are 3 or 4 signed but unannounced. Then when players are inevitably announced you can turn round and say these are the ones I was talking about. You are officially ITK.:cb

I can safely state there are further signings in the pipeline. Hibs haven't announced them yet but they will be announced in the next few days or weeks.:greengrin

I knew last Tuesday that Gray had signed and I know of one other who has signed, I thought he would've been announced by now but it seems not.
