    Joe and Rocky have had offers on the table for a long time. Neither are in any rush to sign them. Obviously a game of bluff from both and we just need to see who folds first.

    Newell was another to take his time to find his feet at Hibs his form has been up and down like many others, some games he's been excellent and looks the best player on the pitch, the next game could easily pass him by and he's been a passenger. This has been seen in Hallberg and Mallan and one of the main reasons our performances are so inconsistent but we are Hibs and until we pay bigger wages inconsistent players like Newell, Hallberg, Mallan, Doidge, Horgan, Slivka etc, are who we will get into the club.
    Newell and Doidge are both significantly better than run of the mill inconsistent players who struggle to get into the team.

    They are both key players in one of the better Hibs teams in recent times.

    They’ll be thinking that if we get Europe our budget will increase so what’s the rush in signing now?

    I think Marciano’s chat last week that he knows his worth was ominous and suspect he’ll be away.

    I can see Newell at Birmingham next season.

    I think he would jump at the chance of joining them if they were interested. If being the key word I think.

    Only player I've been impressed with at United is Fuchs.

    Nowhere near Newell’s level.

    Not sure the idea of playing a few games in Europe will make a difference to their decision.

    Especially not in Irvine’s case who has already played allover the world for Oz, including 3 World Cup finals appearances.

    Ithink they will both get offers from championship sides that are 4 or 5 times what they get at Hibs, so think they will be back down the road in the summer.

    I also hope I am 100% wrong, and that something can be done to keep them here.
    Fair point about Irvine's achievements so far.

    I wouldn't blame either of them for leaving if they could get another £4k per week (probably double Hibs' offer) but if there's only £1k in it then the opportunity to play in Europe has to be tempting for an extra year here.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    Did Boyle not make a joke about it in an interview or something?

    That would seem promising to me.
    It suggested the reverse to me.

    It was like Boyle was trying to ambush or embarrass Newell on live TV.

    I agree with you and I don't expect to see either in a Hibs shirt come August. I think Irvine, in particular, is a top class player and will have plenty of offers.

    Indeed. Both excellent. Levels above Mallans, Skivkas and Horgans etc.

    It has been a strange year, definitely made me wish I was physically closer to my family at times. Don’t blame anyone for holding off committing to anything just now 😁

    Hope he signs, if not we move on, I like him a lot but we’ve lost better and got over it I’m the past 👍

    Think Barrie Mckay always looked after the ball and would do well in a central midfield role. Now at Swansea on loan to Fleetwood.

  22. #51
    On his day brings great composure and ball retention to the middle of the park but has as many average displays as complete stand outs. Would be happy for him to stay but wouldn’t be breaking the bank to keep him either, would release a fair wage if he doesn’t so would be hoping to find a decent replacement.

    Never mind 4 or 5 times their wage. Just doubling it and their off. Even just going from £4k to £6k a week is life changing. 3 year deal and that's over £300k extra in the bank.

    Hes proved himself this season as one of our best players


    Irreplaceable no, but defo worth keeping and building a good squad with.

    I don’t think it’s that simple.

    I wouldn’t move just anywhere even if my salary would double, and I’m not getting as much as they make here.

    Good player, see him now as more in the Dylan role - would be good to get him on a longer deal. Be interesting to see him with Irvine and Cadden in the midfield during the run in.

    Come on Andy Doidge is bang average at best.

    Even if he is bang average. He’s a bang average player better than anyone else at the club that could replace him up top playing alongside Nisbet or Boyle.

    Would be delighted if Newell signed on for a lengthier stay at Hibs as he has been great this season - looking like the classiest player on the pitch in many games. I don't know what wage he's on but would suggest he has earned himself a raise if he stays. We all know the finances in football could take him out of our reach though and if that happened I'd wish him good luck (as long as he wasn't poached by the huns or somesuch in which case hanging, drawing and quartering would be too good for him )
