We have 3 centre backs and 3 strikers with one being Gullane in the whole squad.....quick look at Aberdeen, Utd, Motherwell shows they have around 6 each which shows how wafer thin our squad is. Ross/Gordon need to step up.

He's not a captain,will never make a captain.The only player I can see making a captain is Newell,but we need leadership on the pitch.

I wouldn’t say it’s down to Jack Ross and Ron Gordon. Graeme Mathie, as the Sporting Director, is ultimately in charge of recruitment.

Mathie has done absolutely nothing to address an ageing back line, one that was built in the Championship. That has been an obvious oncoming issue since Neil Lennon was at Hibs. Hoping Porteous and Doig come good isn’t proper planning, finding a centre half who’s an improvement on Hanlon & McGregor is.

The midfield still lacks proper balance, an issue that’s been there since the end of our first season back in the Premiership.

Up front we have invested, as Doidge and Nisbet didn’t come cheap. The coaching staff need to be working with the guys on their movement and finishing, and their confidence. But as a team generally playing with two strikers, we should have a proper third choice striker and Jamie Gullan competing for places.

Gonni be a long second half of the season, cannae see Ron parting wi much money after the year we have had. HSL‘s recent plea makes me think there’s no much in the coffers. Cannae see us gettin anything against the Dodgers, then it’s the Ayrshire Hun followed by the Glasgow version. The transfer windae is officially open, Hibs are probably lookin at injured players we can sign for nowt as we speak.

These two should have been emptied a long long time ago I am afraid..

Far too may sentimental wee souls in the support who love them cause they try their best and they love the club,

Hanlon must be one of the worst Hibs captain's I have ever had the mis-fortune of witnessing.. No leadership qualities , not strong enough on the park , indecisive also... Weak minded and lacks all the attributes you need to be a captain....
I Agree and hope we do some thing this time and not just carry on.

Not going to have a dig at Stevenson because not only has he done well for us and won both cups, he has also impressed a whole lot of managers and seen them all out. I do worry though that in all this time we have never brought in any one good enough to at least challenge him for his position. Frustrates me and no doubt us all, that teams like Livi, Ross co etc who pick up probably a quarter of what we take in financially can continually get results from us. Maybe it is time to cut down the paid backroom staff and spend on the field. Also although I do love Hibs being a community team, I would much rather they competed on the park to give the communist a real lift.
Would you give them full Marx?

GMS as a wing back or a winger? Cause he's no wing back.
Playing them as wingers in that formation is a bit scary too.

All players i wouldn't mind seeing at Hibs mind you... bit wishful.

Hanlon was many fans player of the year up until about a week ago. Now he is being slaughtered by some for a few bad games.

He is a good player, not a great one.

He has lost form over Christmas and New Year like several of his team mates have as well.

I have never thought he was a captain, but the manager thinks otherwise. Apart from the constantly missing Gray and McGregor I can't think of any alternative captains at the club just now. Porteous will be in time, but he still has a lot to learn.
