    Each to their own but not for me.

    Latapy the closest equivalent in terms of the position they played but IMO Latapy a good stretch ahead of him.
    Latapy was consistently outstanding in almost every game. We can't say that about Allan. Latapy was much more involved in the game than Allan.

    This may be controversial, but Scott Allan fit and on his game is up there with those 2.

    That drop of shoulder, wee burst of pace to get by someone and then the weight of pass at the end of it...
    Scott Allan has been a good player for us but the notion that he is up there with Latapy is just fanciful. Wee Russell was a mile ahead of where Scott Allan will ever be.

    It's not controversial it's just plain wrong. He is great in his day but those two were simply majestic.

    Frank Sauzee - Champions League Winner
    Russell Latapy - Played in the Champions League for Porto in 1996 before 4th placed teams were getting in and went on to play in a World Cup

    Scott Allan is nowhere near them. But is it down to how far we had fallen that we had a stand out player and think we can make the comparison? Is this a byproduct of the poorer quality of the leagues since 2000? Hibs Hearts and Rangers all played Championship Football when Scott Allan was standing out initially.

    Scott Allan was a big part of dragging us up off our knees after relegation. Yes, he started in the Championship with us but so did Latapy and Sauzee (neither of whom I want to put down in any way in order to make a point). When Allan got fit during the Championship season he stood out a mile.

    The best we got from Allan was during that half season with Lennon though. At that point he was playing in the top league in a good team, and he was different class. That team got the most points in Scotland during that half of the season and he was a big part of it.

    Sauzee and Latapy were both magnificent but ON HIS DAY Scott Allan could influence games in the same way as they could. He probably wasn't quite as consistent as Latapy (who was immaculate during his whole time with us) and comparing him to Sauzee is a bit like comparing apples and oranges.

    I'm happy that he's spoken of in the same breath as those excellent players. When I look back on my time watching Hibs, Scott Allan will be up there with my favourite players.

    It was a phenomenal performance.

    From being relegated at home to Hamilton in May to sticking 4 past the huns at Christmas and Scott Allan running the show. One of my favourite ever team and individual performances.

    4-0 going on 10. I have never seen a Hibs team dominate the Rangers the way we did that day. One of my favourite games.

    Since the closure of the transfer window, Scott has really upped his training and has been staying late, more effort and doing additional trainingÖ trying to win Jack Ross back over. Iím glad to hear this and Iím sure many other are too.

    That's really good to hear.

    He's been written off by some posters, so nice to see he is working hard to get back in to JR's plans.

    That can only be a good thing. Only the coaching staff and Scotty himself know where he is now and where he needs to be, hopefully the trajectory is upwards.

    Hibs seem to use his lovely wee coupon on their Twitter feed at every opportunity. There doesnít appear to be any disenchantment and Iím glad about that.

    Glad to hear this, he may not be a 1st choice any more but he can still be a valuable member of the squad, his experience and skills will be needed during the season.

    I'm one of Scotts biggest fans, but i actually dont think this is as great news as others seem to think.

    Why has he not been giving 100% before, and trying to win Jack over?

    Probably has but remember he missed a big chunk of football due to his health scare and will be paying catch up, it's great he realises this and wants to do more.

    Imagine having the old Scott Allan back. Hopefully he is able to manage his health and still perform to his full ability.

    Aye perhaps, although it seems he's had a bit of a kick up the erse, and he's reacted the right way.

    I hope he can get back to what we all know he can do, as he's a wonderful player when fit.

    Me & my brother were sitting within touching distance of him on Saturday and both said he looks a lot trimmer than he was earlier in the season. Want nothing more than a fit Scott Allan doing what he does.

    Itís also unfortunate for him that Magennis has found such good form

    What, you think they should just piss about in training and only when they are nearly out the door they take a shake.

    No mate, they should be working hard all the time.

    I will start off by saying I am a huge fan of Scott, absolute quality midfielder and the type of player I love to watch. However, he is nowhere near as good as Latapy and Sauzee. Itís not even close.

    I would compare Scott to Liam Miller, another who was a joy to watch on his day. Allan more capable of that killer pass but Miller had ability in spades and was a player Iíd love to have seen in a better Hibs side, like the 2017/18 one playing McGeouchs role.

    Dear god itís not hard to work out that heís doing a bit more to get noticed.

    That doesnít mean heís not trying in training. He might have before put in 100% in training for the length of time it lasted then went home.

    Maybe now heís working harder by adapting his game to suit what Jack Ross wants? Working more in his own time defensively and winning the ball back.

    In the gym he might be doing more explosive work to make him get faster and be stronger in winning the ball back and protecting it when he gets it.

    Just because heís putting in more effort now doesnít mean that he wasnít trying in training.

    Not heard that, I'm only going by what Black Sheep has said.

    Since his move fell through he is now seemingly working really hard, so why was he not working hard before?

    My point was you shouldn't need a possible transfer to make you buck your ideas up.

    We all know the stick that Stevenson and Hanlon get on here but those two knock their pan in, day in day out. When they hang their boots up they know they gave it their all and will have no regrets.
