    True enough mate. Hard work reading through it.

    He may well have talent, but at 23 years of age that has taken him as far as Sporting's reserve team and a number of loan spells. You have to ask why this phenomenal player only managed to amass 11 Scotland under 21 caps … its not as if we were awash with world class talent in that area.

    Don't get me wrong, he may be a great wee player … but for me I would want to see him perform for Hibs or if it turns out to be Bristol City or Aberdeen them before I start wetting my knickers about his virtues as a footballer.
    I posted something broadly similar on the PM board but if he is joining us then I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

    I see a fair bit of Portuguese football and I reckon Sporting would give us a chasing, though they are weaker due to some internal problems which saw players essentially trying to resign.

    He hasn't even been playing that frequently on loan but the saving grace is that football there tends to be technically proficient, so he will be in a side that are trying to play the right way.

    He was highly-rated when he left Scotland however and I get the impression that Lennon is the kind of guy who can turn a player's career around (notwithstanding the criticism he has been getting for giving public stick to some players).

    Ryan Gauld scans OK in that song too.

    A little concerned he is another wee guy brought into our midfield by Lennon on top of Mallan, Horgan & Hyndman.
    I was really surprised at how little Hyndman achieved. Nothing to do with lack of effort as others suggested , just didn't work in our present team.

    Gauld is a good reliable hard working guy and will have technical ability in spades.
    Hopefully has a bit more vision than Hyndman and a desperation to get on the ball to show what he can do.

    Downside is very limited big time match experience in the last 4.5 years in terms of games and quality. Currently plays in a league where crowds of 1,100 is the norm. Make no mistake there is a lot riding on this loan spell for Gauld as well as Hibs, so he will be massively motivated.

    Conclusion - Jury's out but he is match fit and ready to go. Good luck Ryan and well done to those who got this deal over the line.

    Talented football players find time and space in which to feed in others. Johnny Collins, Russell Latapy, Alex Edwards, Micky Weir, Scott Allen etc etc etc weren't and aren't the most physical but their class enabled them extra time and space in order to spread play and to score goals.

    Of course they do, but in the midfield you also need players to do the dirty work so the talented get the time and space to create.
    This has been our problem this season and the likes of Hyndman have been "sacked" before they can play the killer pass etc.

    Looking back at Hyndman's previous playing stats, rather than where he was coming from club wise, showed a guy with very little experience. Gaulds playing record since leaving Dundee Utd 4.5years ago is similarly sparce.
    Fingers crossed that he is the/a missing part in the Hibs machine.

    Record reporting it's a done deal and he should be joining the squad in Dubai.

    I think what you are referring to is what football purists describe as the ‘Matty Jack role’.

    Technically, and possibly legally, it involves drinking in Clark’s Bar on the night before the game until three or four hours after closing time, longer if it was extended hours for the Festival. Then back to somebody’s flat for more drink, then back to Clarks or an accommating abode for a full cooked breakfast, eggs always fried.

    No athlete could put that in their system without fluids, so a couple of pints of Guinness and a double dark rum chaser would be requisite, preferably in a really dodgy boozer that just happened to be open that early.

    On no accounts is shaving tolerated, or indeed washing one’s hair or probably brushing one’s teeth.

    Then it’s a case of getting to the game. The strip is donned and one goes out into battle knowing that whichever pretty boy with neat moves you are protecting, you are going to put their opponents into row Z as soon as you can get studs on them. And you do.

    I just hope at the end of his loan I’m not reading on here how he would have been a great player for us if only he’d been played in his best position.

    Ryan Gauld quotes from March 2018:

    "I have worked hard at this. It is not about muscle mass but becoming stronger in an athletic sense. I have done that and I continue to work on it.

    "Mainly, I have developed defensively. I was just 17, 18 when I came here but my defensive knowledge is much bigger. Tactically, I am more sure of my positioning. You have to be capable of that in Portugal before getting a game.

    "I like to think of myself as that boy who is capable of taking people on, making chances, chipping in with a few goals. That won't change."

    Personally I have no idea how we can be close to a deal for a player who is already at another club and is still playing for them.

    Seems odd to me. Hopefully the reports are true and he does join.

    It was his final loan appearance for them today.

    Transfers appear to have worked like this for several decades.

    I know how transfers work.

    If I was describing a transfer deal as close I would expect all the financial terms being agreed and a medical complete. How can a medical have been done? Not to mention the player is on loan at another club and is in a different country.

    There is so many things that could still go wrong with this move which is why am saying it's a surprise the media are saying it's close.

    Can't it be close before the medical? Often it falls through after the medical. But you'll know that.

    I once picked up my Season Ticket at Easter Road to get back in the car to hear that Darren Jackson had signed for Celtic.
    I watched Pat Stanton come on for 10mins against Montrose and he was employed by Celtic next day.
    The Huns signed the fellah Jones a couple of days ago and he announced it on twitter whilst still employed by Killie!
    Has Efe had a medical at his new club or is he just signing on the dole?

    Effe has had plenty of conversations with perspective employers prior to Hibs knowing he was off. In my opinion.

    I'd imagine that Efe gave Hibs plenty of notice he'd be leaving, hence the improved terms they offered to persuade him to stay. Just a feeling that it's the kind of thing he'd do

    And a medical you think? Not stretching the point too much I hope. He could fail a medical easily couldn’t he? As could Ryan Gauld after the clubs have agreed a deal. Not without precedent.

    True, don't think he would have gone otherwise.

    Fair enough, building strength and building muscle are entirely different things and you train differently for each one.
