Quite agree, I just didn't understand your earlier comment that Hanlon was to blame for not swapping places with Doig.

I would have had Daz in there, he's a magnet for crosses, and without blaming Doig, I do think Lewis would have had a better chance of winning that ball even though he's a few inches shorter - because he's much stronger than the laddie.

What's done is done though.

And I'm pissed off with it all.

Just heard that Liam Fox has joined the coaching staff - I know one of his mates and Fox is a diehard Gunt with a real dislike of Hibs.

Can't say I'm impressed with that appointment.

My opinion was Hanlon would have been a better match for Rooney, it’s done now anyway but I just didn’t agree with Doig getting the blame.

This is why I have no faith in Ross with his appointments and this latest one is clearly evident of that.

Contrary to my earlier post back in early May, it now looks inevitable to me that Doig will be away soon along with several others.

We just have to ensure we get the maximum value for him, and also negotiate a big sell-on fee.

I still think he needs to spend at least another year with Hibs for his own development as a player, however young talented scottish players are now in big demand down south due to English clubs difficulties in bringing in foreign players after Brexit.

Yeah Josh is going to leave.
Good to see us say no to a £2.5m offer though, we're serious about getting a proper valuation for him.

I think we'll sign someone before he leaves.
I see todays our first day back to the club, so I expect us to start moving again.

They'll just sit back and wait for us to accept something
Then the rest will come and match it.
If we accept a bid from someone then that's the deal that should be done regardless of who comes in with another offer. You can't go accepting a bid then changing your mind. It's not the way to do business especially if you want to keep selling players.

Or improve on it 👍

Why would they? Would mean we've already admitted what our price is. The only offer they need to up on anyone else is his personal terms.

Accepting a bid means you've reached the clubs value.
Accepting another bid from another club that matches that value isn't bad business 🤷‍♂️ we can accept as many offers as we like. It's up to Doig where he goes at that point. Not us.

I dread the day if we ever became fan owned or fan run. Every player would be punted at the earliest opportunity for a pittance. All over social media whether it's Doig, Nisbet or Porteous, it's "good money", "take it", "he's only played 40 games..." etc, etc.

I must be getting old. I recall the times our club got grief for selling players. Now it seems to be celebrated FFS...

Doig is under long term contract and he's learning his trade. He will get better and his value will increase. Hold our nerve and only sell if the offer is too good to refuse.

Doesn’t mean to say the club wouldn’t offer more in order that they get their player. The report says people close to Doig mention Arsenal as his preferred choice, 4/5 million up front is nothing to them where Watford were rounding up to 4 million with the add on’s which was rejected. Arsenal could offer the full amount up front plus give us add on’s over a certain amount of games with a decent sell on clause, it’s going to be interesting that’s for sure and if it does happen I hope our recruitment team have a ready made replacement lined up.
