    Leigh Griffiths is still the best goal scorer in Scotland and if fit and gets his mojo back then he would be a brilliant signing. He would definitely help get ST sales going in a year I think will be difficult to get the numbers back. Leigh doesnít even need great service to get goals, he can make them out of nothing. I would be very disappointed to see him play for another Scottish club and think it would be a bit of a blow to Hibs fans if he did. We can only hope 🤞🇳🇬

    Good points.
    I'm just thinking Jack Ross has to show he's capable of managing some players who aren't steady Eddie's, Scott Allan doesn't appear to create problems and Leigh did seem to knuckle down for us so it's more managing their playing potential than character I think, there has to be some flair in his team for his career to keep developing.
    JR might be happy with us in 3rd/4th but I wouldn't think so.
    This situation, if its at all possible, hands him a great opportunity for both Hibs and his own career path.
    Will be interesting times.

    Iíve said it earlier, but donít under estimate the job Pat Fenlon did in managing Leigh in his previous stints at Hibs.

    Iíve no doubt heís a bit of a handful. But I would absolutely welcome him back. Having a striker who is a bit of a bampot is the Hibs way.

    Bit in bold is not to be underestimated.

    Has he posted a selfie on Instagram of him on a Scotrail train with a reflection of Linlithgow Palace in the left hand window?

    Iím struggling to see a downside to signing Leigh. We will most likely sell Nisbet and Leigh and Doidge would be great as a pairing with the big man knocking it on for him.Where else will we get a player of Griffiths quality plus he loves and is happy playing for us. We have to wait till apr 30 passes then I can see hibs approaching him. Would get me excited for next season. Make it happen Ron.

    Come on, he's not even the best at Celtic. Edouard is miles better.

    Best Scottish striker maybe.

    This would be one way to get season tickets Ron :p

    Hey,,,, nowt wrong with the Rose! Except for the team colours!

    If we can get Leigh back to Easter Rd then let's get the deal over the line.Pretty sure Leigh would love to play at Easter Rd again.Should Nisbet move on then he is a ready made replacement who is guaranteed to score goals.If there is any substance to this speculation get it done Hibs .As others have said it would also be a massive boost for ST sales.

    Griffiths and Boyle together, thatís quite mouth watering 🙂

    Itís very clear from all your comments that you are indifferent to signing Griffiths. Thatís fine. Iíve also got reservations but, as I think that the majority of Hibs fans would love to see him given a chance, I think we should avoid negative spin. If we can get him back, without major financial implications, and it doesnít work out, well tough. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    this brings me back to 2014 and gives me the warm'n'fuzzies




    if leigh were to sort himself out and get his mojo back, he'd be a £10million player. It might be a risk, but it's not a huge one, and it's VERY worth taking.

    To be fair heís just being realistic with that latest post (havenít read all the previous). Griffiths isnít the best striker or goalscorer in Scotland just now. And Edouard is a better player.

    I do think heís the best Scottish option though (when fully fit and sharp) and Iíd very much like to see him return to Easter road.

    Exactly - not one of these reports has any fact in it. These guys should be embarrassed printing and filing this nonsense. The only fact is that Aberdeen has said they arent pursuing him.... (which means the probably are). From that its been decided he will be coming to Hibs.

    My view is IF we can get him and its fits our wage structure then I'd be making an approach - 2 year deal. But i dont think he will take the hit.

    Itís all conjecture. Nobody really knows if Griffiths actually will be released by Celtic, whether Aberdeen really are not interested but might be holding back so Hibs get complacent and then they can jump into the bidding, with an offer Griffiths couldnít refuse. We donít even know if Hibs are actually interested. Thereís a lot of life in this one still.

    Can we not try and get Oli Shaw back instead? He was the greatest player in the world when he scored a tap in against us at Easter Road.

    Embarrassed journalists, HA! - good yin.

    I think Hibs will try to buy Leigh Griffiths IF we wrap up third place. As has been alluded to, a marquee signing as such will help boost much needed season ticket sales.
