    Can i just say I don't want Gullan to go anywhere I wasn't proposing a swap or loan I was just saying I think he'd be the only make way in a deal for nisbet 😁 I think it will be cash or nothing and more likely to be nothing

    Nesbit has scored some goals for Dunfermline. He's 23 and not scored in any of the top leagues. Gullan is still only 20. All ive seen of Nesbit has been on Youtube. Ive seen enough of Gullan to know he will score plenty once he gets his chance. For me we really need to give Gullan a chance rather than potentially spending 350k on an unproven striker.
    It's all about opinions mate and I get that and to be honest I've not seen much of both of them. What I did see Nesbit impressed me a lot and he won't ever score goals at a higher level unless he gets the chance. I'm aware of how highly rated Gullan is at the training centre and the guys like yourself and Billy who watch a lot of the young team plus he was doing well with Raith in league one. I would still prefer to take a chance with Nesbit who at 23 is still young and he's improved massively in the last two seasons and there's nothing to say he can't step up again this season.

    Yes good shout...i've seen Nesbit twice in the flesh and he looks like the sort of young hungry player that would fit the profile of one of our most successful recent signings, McGinn. He's got the attributes I like in a Hibs' player too, quick and direct.

    I know Whitty was a free agent, but I was thinking today that can Hibs not look to offer Dunfermline one or two of our fringe players in part-swap/part cash deal for him?

    With Kamberi's loan deal now extended, we're back to one recognised established forward in Doidge, and Gullan as the only other option.

    The club have had an unexpected financial boost in the last weeks with the leap of faith by the fans with the uptake in HSL contributions.

    It's not too much to ask the club to reciprocate in the form of a couple of decent signings?

    Kamberi's loan deal hasn't been extended.

    Would far sooner we gave minutes to Gullan, this season is a massive opportunity for us to give a few really promising kids some game time, and for the 'academy' to prove it's worth. If we can afford Nisbet and get him for a fair price then great, but I wouldn't want us spending money in an area in which I think we've got enough to get by, when there are more pressing areas that need sorted.

    BTW, his name is Nisbet.

    My bad...I can't see him being here at the start of the season though, or if he is I don't think his heart will be in it.

    My point still stands...other teams are signing players, and they're having to deal with effects of Covid too. With 9k plus season tickets sold and the windfall of the HSL contributions the club have got to be a bit more active in the transfer market than they appear to be at the moment.

    i really hope we're not going to be going down the road of loan retreads that's been a feature of the last couple of windows.

    No sure about having enough to get by up front. Really, we have one proven striker in Doidge and thatís it. Boyle will do you a job but that means you lose your best winger. And then there is the untried Gullan, who I hope gets minutes and proves himself but I wouldnít want to go in to the season relying on it.

    Normal circumstances Iíd be looking for us to strengthen at the back but with the contracted players we have I think itíll be a case of going with what weíve got.

    Middle of the park is the obvious gap.

    To be fair, the description was 'most successful captain', rather than 'best ever' - they're not one and the same.

    I would agree that Billy McNeil is still that captain (best), and he played in a far tougher era than Scott Brown has. Never the less, SB's record and trophies will be one of the most decorated ever (in Scottish football) I would assume
    And his most impressive is his 2007 league cup winners medal.

    I assume this boy has heard a rumour down there about this, couldnít find anything else on it. Centre half wouldnít be a priority I donít think, unless someone is leaving. Sidney Nelson from Tranmere can be added to the vague/random transfer rumour list.

    That daft twitter page HibernianFans posted (so presumably made up) the rumour earlier.

    Wonít be anything in it.

    Thing is, thereíll be times they pick up a rumour elsewhere and report it so might turn out to be true.

    Canít see it anywhere else though so doubt thatís the case on this occasion.

    I canít believe Iíve been caught out by one of their nonesense rumours without even reading it tbh. Ridiculous.

    Presumably we are waiting for players taking a wage cut before we see incomings - and probably the reason Drey Wright is on day 9 of a medical.

    Not heard about the wage cuts for a while, would have thought it would have been resolved one way or another by now.

    Going to be a nightmare if we have Nesbitt, Allen, Mallon and Dodgie in the same side 😉

    Not sure how some folks coped with the late 00's

    Szamotulski
    Noubissie
    Antoine-Curier
    Malkowski
    Gathuessi
    Makabu-Makalambay

    The list goes on..

    If our Development Team is being wound up, even temporarily, that means we will be losing promising players. I would imagine this would mean losing a lot of potential for the future. Would it make sense to loan out as many "prospects" as we can to teams like Dumfy, maybe to help get Nesbitt? I know that we will probably end up still paying a chunk of wages, but if we genuinely think some of these guys will make it, it makes sense to keep hold of them, release the rest and keep their development going elsewhere. You are maybe not cutting costs so much, but you are still cutting a large chunk and helping secure new players and hopefully future players when they come back to us.

    Pretty sure Szamotulski was a good keeper. The rest, yeah, pretty rubbish.

    The best of the development team get lent out every year already. Most are not good enough for Dunfermline.

    He was top notch. Shame he wasn't here longer.

    Something is telling me Antoine-Curier wasnt that bad. Wasnt great either though. Im sure he had a few good games. Did he not end up scoring against us for Hamilton?

    Agreed. Very good keeper.
