I agree with that too, despite their success last season, we absolutely are a bigger club and more appealing.
St J are going to have a tough season I think, they'll likely lose all 3 of their central defenders and that won't be easy to replace.
I couldn't grudge them holding out for the best possible fee for all of them.
1 win in Europe (as unlikely as it is they'll qualify for the europa) would be worth more than selling McCart twice over, maybe even more.
We should definitely go back with an improved offer, because the same applies, winning our games would pay for him twice over.
Speculate to accumulate gets banded about everywhere I read folk talk about Hibs, we're in a position just now where that might actually be achievable.
