There's always players we are set to sign but for whatever reason they don't come here (normally end up at The Sheep nowadays!) - but what are your favourite almost men for Hibs....you know, the David Platt kinda signings.

Be interested if there's any really random ones out there!

Anyone?

Ally Dick, we were close to signing him when Joe McBride got injured.

Instead he went Ajax, and we got Joe Tortolano.
Wow! This is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping for!

Good thread. Those who spring immediately to mind include Gordon Strachan, John Robertson, and Ronnie Rosenthal.

Ryan Christie is another - we were close to signing him when John McGinn left, Celtic for reasons that escape me didn’t conclude the deal.

Not strictly pertinent to this thread as not a player..... but I had heard at the time there was big "interest" from Hibs for Stevie Clark to be the manager of Hibernian. I was down in England when got the news our new manager was Pat Fenlon. Firstly "who?" I thought.... was gutted!

Yeah, I heard that too. Also that Michael O'Neill would have been our manager if it wasn't for a smear campaign against him and his drinking habits.

Maybe we've lost out more on managers than players!

Aye, forgot about Michael O'Neil (another classy player. Sweet left peg). .... but I dont think he was actually in the frame at the time....

Had a long interview with Rod and thought he had the job, was mentioned in a Scotsman interview

Jamie Cureton was a player we were always linked with back in the day but never signed
