    It was his players. His team.
    JR was very clear, after the summer transfer window, that the club had significantly failed to get the player he needed and asked for. He was badly let down. But heís gone now so we support Shaun Maloney and hope he has benefited for those previous failings.

    Agreed.Donít understand where the Hallberg Appreciation Society has suddenly appeared from.

    He seemed a decent player,but he never did enough to convince he should be a regular starter.

    Wish him all the best at St Johnstone but unless things significantly improve for them soon,he could spend a good lot of his 18 months of contract in the Championship.

    St Johnstone are desperate for a regular reliable goal scorer and that is definitely not Hallberg.
    True but he was an honest and genuine squad player who always seemed to give of his best for Hibs, even if rarely setting the heather alight; he didn't spit the dummy nor throw the toys out the pram, and deserves a farewell thank-you.

    Wish Allan all the best for the rest of his career, some great memories and the 19/20 season was his best for me.

    Would have been good to see what JR would have done with 6 new players.... but we will never know. Fully behind Shan.

    No longer got any interest in McGrath and we didnít place any bids for Sibbick, according to the EEN.
    Don't think so.

    I keep getting told that these players are not bang average as they got 3rd last season, if that's the case why did Ross struggle to get a song out of them this season?

    Because you need to improve your squad as others around you do?

    Ross had us flying before Doidge/Magennis got injured and Porteous suspended as well. He also reached another cup final.

    The 17/18 season where he came on loan under Lennon he was awesome.

    How many of ross signings are a big part of our plans with maloney, like genuianly?

    Iíd say cadden, JDH, Nisbet, Mueller.

    Not saying thatís good terrible or brilliant. Just looking at the evidence.

    Anyone worried? The window closes and we've not added any experience, 3, 4, 5 games come and go and we're up against it.

    The Cove experience just fills me with fear.

    I am concerned that yes our signing policy is clearly young, hungry players with a potential to grow and sell on for a big profit.

    But is there a lack of canny street wise characters? Absolutely imo.

    We miss a Scott brown type, even Marvin Bartley. Know when to slow it down play on a foul and the complete opposite.

    Midfield is still our weakest position imo, followed by centre forward.

    Defence is done, very strong there.

    We definitely need to add experienced good quality up front as losing Boyle mid season needs to be addressed along with a striker that can play Maloneyís style. Most of our attacking signings seem to be for the future. If we donít add in this window I fear the season will be over. Fingers crossed 🤞

    Just a tad. We have zero creativity and drive from midfield. We have little width and other than a left wing back in Mitchell zero pace. We canít create and canít convert as our strikers are either off form (Nisbet) for months or unfit (Doidge). We have now let Scott Allan go and already sent McKay on loan. Along with Boyle our best player by a mile.

    Still itís not Jack Ross so itís probably all fine then. Right now this is a worse window than the summer overall.

    Said it before but Allan to Killie would be really bad for us.

    Would kill the progression and game time of Dylan Tait as theyíd both be competing for a similar position.
    I donít know why youíd be too worried they are different players and I donít think it will make much difference to Tait as Killi need to improve that area of the pitch wether itís Allan or not.

    We have loads of experienced players. Its quality ones we need and so far, we seem to have signed them.

    The cove experience where we battered them and had a goal disallowed which totally changes the game. Far too many folk worrying about one match. You never see talk of winning the league based on one match, so why do you expect us to be up against it based on one match?

    Up against what btw? We've won 3 of our last 5 league games, and every team below us in the table is quite clearly worse than us. We'll be 5th at worst assuming Maloney isn't another Butcher. Also think we're a better side than Motherwell.

    This is where I am. The security of strength in the middle to control and build the team around, I won't even suggest a McGinn type player as he's a £60M man, but a figurehead to set an example and set the standards.

    I'm worried, but 100% willing to give him a chance obviously.

    Henderson made some good balls forward in the Motherwell game, Mueller is still getting up to fitness but has shown signs of being a talent and able to get away from his man and by the sounds of it Melkersen will be a find. Rocky looks excellent and Harry Clarke when back to fitness will be excellent too. Magennis to come back very soon too.

    I think it's been a good window but we could still do with another wide player and perhaps another striker.


    Do you think your security can keep you in purity, you will not shake us off above or below. Scottish friction, Scottish fiction

    Iím totally backing Shaun btw.

    Just think weíre maybe an experienced player short, newell isnít that guy for me, not yet anyway.

    Newell is our best central midfielder. We play with 2 central midfielders. He isn't the one a new player would replace.

    I think you are overreacting

    Our squad definately has more depth at the moment and you haven't really seen Clarke, Melkerson or to a certain degree mitchell play

    I don't see why letting Scott Allan go really impacts our squad given his game time - he wasnt good enough now and it's why we have let him go

    The Cove experience just fills me with fear.
    Our starting line up on Wednesday had about 950 Hibs appearances amongst them and an average of 26 years of age. How much experience do you want?

    Iím no sure it can be considered a good window so far.

    From about November, it was all about the transfer window. Itís come and weíve added players but very few have made any impact or are ready to make an impact. Couple that with losing our best player.

    I hope the likes of Henderson and Melkerson can bee good in time but Iím not sure in terms of the remainder of this season. Thought we needed to strengthen middle of the park and in the forward areas and I donít think we have, to the point that Drey Wright is getting a game.

    I have absolutely no idea how good a side we are - Hibs are sending me very mixed signals at the moment.

    It's a results business and Maloney's results have been good so far.

    It's also quite hard to get optimistic about a team who struggle to muster any attempts on goal.

    All the players coming in sound good on paper, who knows how they might perform on the park.

    Nothing would surprise me with this Hibs team - anything from clicking immediately and forcing their way up and into third, all the way down to a Butcheresque freefall.
