Hasn't gone downhill for him at all.

Lennon told us the reason Shaw was still in the team was because he made it hard to drop him, by performing and scoring.

Box to box striker is a new one though. So he's not a poacher then?

What is a box to box striker?

Someone who'd be matches fit? :lookaround:

The expression box to box midfielder was coined for Pat McGinlay. Box to box striker? Did he play for Sydney Swan Vestas? :dunno:

Murray has been honing his blow football skills today judging by videos online...

Does he strike in his own box as well then?

Sorry mate, i was meaning he is a box striker, see here from the Ex Gunt Ryan MaGowan


[FONT=&quot]Similar to Cummings....penalty box striker with good movement, runs in behind well, clever link up play! Given service would imagine he will score goals!! Will be driven to preform well with WC coming up!! Hope he has a stinker on debut and sad to have lost a mate [/FONT]

I wouldn't be overly concerned about any forward leaving except Shaw. The new boy will be the answer to the penalty box striker we have been lacking.

No need to worry when we'd clearly get replacements in if Lennon did allow a departure or two.

Stokes fannies about too much outside the box. Murray is worth keeping unless our manager has better in mind.
Big Dave was signed as a squad filler and would only be worth keeping for a 15 minute cameo of winning the odd high ball.

We've not taken enough of our chances so there's clearly room for improvement. We will have a list of targets :smoke::smoke::smoke::smoke::smoke:

I pondered over whether big Dave was signed to help Slivka settle in, in much the same way as we signed Hurtado to be De La Cruz's pal.

Yeh, the difference is that Hurtado was a football genius, Dub. :Sparkle_Cool:

Hurtado bombed for Hibs but that could have been as much to do with Blobby's poor use of him rather than his lack of football genius. I was at an LA Galaxy quiz event recently and a question about 'the tank' came up. He's regarded quite highly among elements of the Galaxy support. According to Wiki he scored 30 goals in 50 games....

Lennon may reckon he could put the fee and wage to better use. 50k more and its a done deal :bye
Chuck in Big Dave for the Turks also and get us a decent bigger forward who knows where the goal is.

There wouldn't be a fee for Fontaine leaving so I would keep him to season end just in case. Doubt he would rock the boat when he will go anyway in the summer.

Fonts is now down in the pecking order as the 5th choice centre half. Might mean him leaving frees up a wage. Sad to see him go. Another LEGEND.

You could be right, Smurf...

"This week’s friendly with Excelsior also saw defender Liam Fontaine, who has been the subject of interest from an unnamed English club, return to action after a second serious ankle injury earlier in the season."

I like him as well, he’s been very good for us since he signed and I think he’d have done a job for us in the Premiership. Sadly injuries forced Lennon to sign a replacement that turned out to be Efe Ambrose, further injury has since kept him out all season and unfortunately his game time is going to be very limited. If he wants to get a regular game, he’s going to have to say farewell.

Seemed a good guy who really got Hibs.
