    He would take too long to get match fit. Look how long it took Stokes and he is about 5 years younger and not as fat.



    I really don't understand how folk are so sure he is not fit to play or is too 'fat'? Aye he had an injury issue at the start of the season but how about maybe entertaining the fact he might be perfectly fit and healthy, ready to play but Brendan Rogers doesn't fancy him/want to change a winning formula??

    Why anyone would be against him coming to us is beyond me. Class act.

    Lennon doesn't mention commons in article so could be rag putting 2 and 2 together.

    However, I reckon we do have a shot at this.

    No doubting he has ability but he hasnt played since April i think. There is not a chance he will be match fit. I would take him due to our current midfield situation if only to sit behind the strikers and spray the ball about.

    Hearing anything in this one Scoop?
    Heard we were approaching Celtic for an emergency loan prior to the game at Tannadice, I thought it was Henderson though.

    The guy writing the article is quite relevant I think.

    Kenny Millar is a hibby and usually accurate with his stuff about us.

    The article also has comments from DU. youth coach, Dave Bowman, my number one 'players you love to hate'. He waxes lyrical about Cammy Bell, penalty save specialist, saying. "We give away penalties now and we're not even bothered." Nice footballing philosophy, ya muppet.

    If this is true, then those kids who thought they might make the breakthrough this season are either not good enough, or the manager does not rate them good enough yet?

    I wonder which it is?

    I don't think Lennon is willing to gamble on any youth players. Its either promotion or his managerial career is done and dusted.

    I think the manager may assume it may be unfair to put a hell of a lot of pressure and expectation on their shoulders. It's nip and tuck at the top just now so bringing the likes of Commons in, with his experience of winning titles may be a master stroke from Lennon. The crunch games will be played, IMO, in March and April at which point Commons would, hopefully be flying.

    Yip 2-0 against Dumbarton at home and the pressure must have been immense?

    Maybe?

    Before the Dumbarton game Lennon was asked on Sportsound about Commons and he said it's pure speculation, and that the rumour had been doing the rounds virtually since he started at Hibs. Various newspapers can make up or have their own opinions about football issues, often there is nothing based on fact. Of course Commons joining Hibs would be great, that goes without saying, but I've seen no firm evidence of it, and more to the contrary. Would love to be proved wrong though.

    Kenny Miller in the Sun appears to be ITK and he thinks deal is on. Be a great signing and lays down a marker of intent.

    I felt that there was more pressure at ER on Saturday than there has been in years.

    At 0-0 it was very tense, we were playing poorly and scraped a goal from a set-piece.

    We all know how fragile a 1-0 lead can be and it was tense until Graham's goal in the 76th minute.

    I accept that he should possibly have thrown on a couple of subs for the last 15 minutes or so as I felt at that point the game was won, but it seems to me that Lennon is taking this seriously and won't leave anything to chance.

    I'd like to see the younger lads getting a chance, even if just for a short spell at the end of a game, but if it backfired and they made the kind of mistake that would cost us the game then Lennon would be crucified.

    No doubting his pedigree but match fitness? It took Stokes long enough to get up to speed and he's much younger. With all of our injury problems we need a player(s) to "hit the ground running" as they say. We can't afford any passengers so to me it is paramount that his all round fitness is not in question. Fully fit - yes! Half fit - no!

    I'd rather our focus was winning each game and scoring as many as we can whilst doing it than giving people game time for the sake of it.

    The youngsters will play when they are the best available option at the time.

    More from Kenny Millar:

    Kenny Millar ‏@Kenny_Millar 2h2 hours ago

    Commons one Hibs are determined to try and land, but isn't the only one on their list. Christie, Henderson and Pawlett still of interest.

    It's not really game time for the sake of it though.

    It's taking an opportunity to see what players can do in the first team, even if just for a short spell.

    I've always been impressed by Scott Martin - wouldn't it be great if the answer to our current midfield problems was under our noses? Wouldn't it be great if he came in, played out his skin and prevented Fyvie or McGinn getting back in? We all know about Lewis Stevenson's great strengths but odd limitation. What if Callum Crane ended up having a better mix of skills? Crane comes on for the last 15 minutes, whips 3 or 4 great balls into the box creating a couple of goals - it gives Lennon something to think about.

    We have to assume these players aren't good enough and that's why they're not even getting a brief chance, which is pretty harsh on those players.

    I do accept though that winning games by the biggest margin possible is the priority this season and I still back Lennon 100% to do it whichever way he sees fit.

    If Kris Commons is still fit but just requires games then that tells me all I need to know about his attitude. Get him in.

    Good boost going into a difficult set of fixtures.

    Hopefully more early January.

    Creativity and pace required - plus goals from midfield.
