Thread: Sean Mackie

  1. #1

    Sean Mackie

    This is in the public domain now... Hearts were expecting to sing Sean Mackie from Raith this week. Pre-contract. 17yo LB. Hibs have jumped in and offered him a 4year deal. If he chooses Hibs there will be some major face saving required at the bus shelter.

    Would be a great move for the laddie, stays 2 minutes from East Mains and by all accounts, a very talented Left Back with a bright future.

    Our only negative is we let him go at 13/14 as we didn't think he was good enough. May pray on his mind.

    The club has come a long way in 3/4 years. If he can't see that the future is Green & White then he may be better off at the Jambos!

    He's 17!! He was in the Fife performance squad for the last few years. Are you thinking a 17yo shouldnt be looking to move to bigger teams?

    No idea how good he is but if he wants to play football he should sign for us. If he wants to lump long balls forward every week he'll be well suited to them.

    He's a 17 year old boy, who doesn't drive and is having to trek to and from Kirkcaldy day in day out. Not easy. If you then get offered to go to a bigger team, probably more cash, and about 200 yards from your front door, IMO it would be a no brainer.

    These things are irrelevant IMO. Obviously it is good if the person concerned supports the team he is playing for but really, it doesn't matter a jot what team he supports as long as he is good enough.

    Let`s be honest - There will have been a collective sagging of shoulders from readers on learning that

    Think the current Hibs squad is a perfect example of this. Rarely have I seen a Hibs squad as committed and passionate towards the club as the current one yet off the top of my head can only think of Paul Hanlon, Darren McGregor and Kevin Thomson as being boyhood Hibs fans

    I think what he might be hinting at is that if he is a hibs fan he is far more likely to sign for us rather than them.

    Hopefully the Stubbs factor of developing young players recently will help. Also if he watched the recent derbies there was only one team trying to play football the right way which IMO he should take into account.

    He's not. He and his family are fully fledged Sevconians

    Doesn't sound like we were when he was younger either. If you get knocked like that and see that clubs don't have loyalty I'd imagine your mentality would be affected and change.

    It's nice of them all to support a new venture instead of one of Scotland's more established teams.

    Something that always got me about the term Boyhood fans / boyhood heroes - did they grow out of it?

    Some do when they play for a team for a long time, players like Stevenson ( Raith ) Carragher ( Everton ) Robertson ( Hibs allegedly )

    Aye but there are exceptions - like Billy Broon - who always retained his affection for the Hibees, and just couldn't stop himself showing it.

    You can see similarities between him and Cumzings actually- in terms of the way he shows his affections for hearts ;)

    Exactly I'm just glad I'm not the only one that has spotted it. 😋
