    The Crazy Rumour Hibs 11

    Well we have the weekend off so to pass the time I thought this might be a laugh.

    Let's assemble a team full of players that were linked to us but never came, ideally the most crazy rumours

    Off the top of my head we have the infamous Reyes, Cruyff and this last transfer windows mention of the legend that is Hernan Crespo.

    Who else has there been?

    Andy Gray as Player Manager before lexo was appointed, was a rumour doing the rounds

    Bobby Mann (in a swap deal with Whittaker and Riordan going the other way)

    Trouble is, that was actually mooted by Blobby Williamson.

    Has there ever been a clearer example that the manager of a football club is the key employee who should be the best you can get, and not rotund ex-Huns who think entertainment is best left to the Omni Centre….

    And every time he was negotiating a new contract. I think we actually made a bid for him around 1989.

    Riordan would swap Celtic and return to Hibs.

    I seem to remember quite a while ago that someone on here said that Zidane was coming out of retirement to do a stint with hibs after a conversation with Sauzee... and they were genuinely serious

    Apparently, we're regularly going to sign someone called Matty Jack Roll.


    Whoever he may be

    I may be wrong, but I thought that Andy Gray wrote in his autobiography that he did apply for the job.

    Don't think this is crazy enough. He actually got a trial for Hibs - I saw him play in it (at Jordanhill College as it then was). He scored v Rangers.

    Yeah I always thought that one was pretty much fact, just like us missing out to Aston Villa on David Platt.

    Did Alex McLeish not have to deny that we were after Gianluigi Lentini back in the early days of the SPL, about 8 years after he was the most expensive player in the world?
