Thread: Scott Allan

  1. #91
    Number of times he got taken off early and the fans were up in arms. All makes sense now. Hadn't looked himself for a while. Scott is a magnificent footballer. More talent in his wee toe than most players could dream of. Keeping everything crossed for him that the worst is now behind him and he can get back to doing what he's good at at a place where he's loved.

    Just skim read some posts. Being diabetic and doing exercise is pretty tough.As a diabetic Ive gone from 15 stones to 12 in a few years having a couple of seizures as a random consequence. Couch to 5k to half marathon in 2 years has been great for me but blood sugar management with the training is so difficult. Scotty is a hero. One of the most dynamic midfielders in Scottish football having to balance diabetes being an athlete is amazing. We are lucky to have him

    Love that scrappy goal.

    Really pleased that Scotty's feeling good and hopefully will get a start soon. Can see him staying with us for a good few years and would be delighted if he did.

    Watching the video again, it looks to me as if Scott has bulked up a wee bit on his upper body.

    Amazing fortitude from this young man facing adversity of the cards fate has dealt him.

    I was some what shocked that screening isnít already in place. (Moira Gordonís article states heís along a call for widespread screening.

    I thought that whole point about learning the lessons from Molumbo and the young Hibs and Heart youths that died within days of each other ????!!!!!!

    I could make other points but I didnít want to dilute my shock. Relatively speaking Thereís a lot of money in football is this not where some of the football money should go before almost everything else???

    It goes to show we don't know what is going on in a players personal life and we never consider that there may be an issue when dishing out criticism of them if their performances are not up to scratch. Scott a fair bit of stick about his performance, not being fit enough to see out a full game etc a while back and now we see why.

    Comes across as a great guy and we all know what a great player he is. Hopefully he can get back to his best with us.

    I just wonder how much this medical condition has affected him prior to this season??? Clearly the 1st couple of months it truly came to a head when he felt that something was seriously wrong but I just wonder
    how often in the past he maybe felt drained in the latter stages of a game and didn`t realise it was something to do with this?
    He himself has said he feels so much better now,I wouldn`t be surprised if we actually see a stronger and actually fitter Scotty next season after a pre season working around the condition as opposed to
    all those pre seasons when they weren`t aware of it and probably put it down to just being out of condition?

    I think it must have to at least some extent, I donít believe this condition has only arisen in the past 7 months or so. Just delighted for him that it has been diagnosed.

    Editorial from the Hootsman

    Hibs' Scott Allan plays the kind of football we all like - and we need him back
    The football fan likes the player to ďgetĒ his club, to perform in such a way as to be emblematic of a style and a tradition. That is more difficult in the modern game when no one stays with the same team forever or for very long at all, but Scott Allan and Hibs seem to go together.
    By Aidan Smith
    Sunday, 21st February 2021, 7:30 am


    Three displays might sum this up: the match against Rangers in his first spell, 4-0, with all the goals created by him. The match at Ibrox beginning his second spell, playing like heíd never been away, pulling all the strings, another victory. And the match at Ibrox in his third spell, conjuring up the ďpass of the millenniumĒ for Daryl Horganís goal. That was very Hibs, raving about an assist when your team had been leathered 6-1, and there was a lot of teasing from Rangers supporters, from many clubs in fact.


    But fans from all over have been warm in their wishes for Allan to make a full recovery from his heart condition and get back to playing his best. He spoke well to Skyís Luke Shanley when describing his anxiety - but not his out-and-out fear - over whether he would ever pull on his boots and craft another of those killer reverse passes. I wasnít surprised by that, remembering how smart heíd been in a long interview - not something all players like - back in 2017 when he was on loan from Celtic at Dundee.


    Pondering his status in the Scottish game he said: ďHearts fans probably donít like me because I played for Hibs. Hibs fans probably donít like me because I left. Rangers fans probably donít like me because I went to Celtic. I started at Dundee United but their fans probably donít like me because Iím now at Dundee. Celtic fans know that when I was a wee boy my favourite team were Rangers and thatís probably a good enough reason for Aberdeen fans to not like me. Itís a shambles!Ē


    All of this, by the way, was presented with that fetching smile of his; he wasnít remotely feeling sorry for himself. Same as now. He suffers from a condition that has turned out to be career-ending for some footballers, life-ending for others, but he is determined to beat it.


    Hibs fans have forgiven Allan for leaving and now that heís back they couldnít love him more. The tradition heís continuing is that of the old-school inside-forward: Bobby Johnstone then Alex Cropley then Russell Latapy and now Allan.


    But beyond Easter Road thatís also a Scottish tradition: the guy in the middle of the park, never tall but big in ideas, with dancing feet to go with the bold, adventurous mind. In that interview four years ago he told me: ďWhen I play I want folk to go: ĎI saw something out there today. Thatís the kind of football I like.íĒ The kind we all like. Itís cheering he has had his condition identified and a procedure for keeping it in check established. Hopefully his full return will coincide with our full return for Allan needs an audience if heís going to top THAT PASS.

    Still the best midfielder I've seen at Hibs bar McGinn.
