According to todays Scotsman "Hibernian head coach Jack Ross is keen to keep hold of loan quartet Jason Naismith, Stephane Omeonga, Marc McNulty and Greg Docherty".

If his grip was looser on McNulty I wouldn't mind but I'd be delighted to keep the other three.

Most would get that, but McNulty was rusty or even unfit. You need lots of games in football to get up to pace. He would be a terrific signing. Getting games and fitness up to scratch is going to be a massive test for all clubs. I hope our players have been looking after themselves. Pre season training will be extra brutal, due to long lay off.

I've never been a fan to be honest, even during his initial loan. I think he flatters to deceive and any questions I had about his attitude were answered with that stamp. I've been following Sheffield United as my English team for a while and he was a streaky player who would score for a bit then disappear for weeks there and it seems to have been a theme throughout his career.

I honestly believe we could do better.

. Agree as regards the stamp. If Hibs can do better then fair enough. GGTTH

Jury is out on McNulty for me,wasn’t brilliant in 1st spell and just hasn’t done it this time.

I like Docherty but he hid and was abysmal in the derby at ER,probs keep.

Omeonga is barry on the piano.

I’d like to keep Naismith if he’s the same player as before injury.

I'd keep all four if we can, even though like others I think McNulty is a bit overrated. He was struggling for fitness for a long time and strikers need to be playing regularly. I think he is an intelligent striker though and when fully fit can finish quite well. He was on ridiculous wages at Reading, however post-Covid I think we will see footballers wages decline sharply and so we may be able to take advantage when we are in a position to do so whenever the hell that will be. He is an Edinburgh boy and has a house here and lots of contacts at the club so I think we might be able to do something eventually.

Got told yday that Big Ron was given advice from someone outside the club on reconstruction/save the Jambos with particular emphasis on how these C's would have handled things if the boot was on the other foot.

By a respected Hibernian Man who "has his ear".

I'd like to think this counted.

McNulty has good movement and works well off of someone.
I wouldnt be upset if we didn't keep him as I'm sure there will be other targets up front.
The stamp is a black mark for sure.
If he stays, I'm sure hes a player that would do good.

The other 3 I'd be happy to keep.
We love Omeonga, he gets it, he feels us.
Docherty could be harder, depends on the deal that was done before though. Doubt they'll keep Kamberi.
I know others arent so keen on Naismith but I thought he was okay. Not sure what kind of playing time he'd be after though.

I don't think moving early is the way to go here, far too many uncertainties although I'm fairly certain it will be a totally different landscape at the other end.
Clubs won't be carrying the size of squad they used to and the trickle down effect will be that there will be thousands of quality players looking for hundreds of jobs.

I’d definitely try and sign Naismith we need constant competition and can’t see SDG being available much more than he has this season.

We have Paul McGinn already. I feel McGinn is better than Naismith?

Don’t think there is much between them. But if SDG is out for months on end it would be good to have constant competition for the right back spot like we have been crying out for at the left back slot for years

I think Naismith is better going forward than McGinn. I like my full backs to be an attacking threat as well as a competent defender.


As an aside, bloody hell, I miss the Hibs.

McGinn has been good, but he’s only got a deal to next summer, and with Gray’s injury problems, I think Naismith could be a good option for the longer term.

I wasn’t a massive fan of him at first, but he grew on me. He seems to get Hibs too, which always helps.

There will sadly be a huge number of decent pro footballers in need a of club. If we are in good shape at the end of this we can probably attract better players than before. Particularly as if, as they should the whining effnuggets, Villa get relegated and the sell on monies probably buy twice as much.

McNulty generally lasts a season somewhere before " it doesn't work out" wouldn't be too worried if he adds another club to the list.

Naismith was brutal at defending but ok going forward, not so sure on McNulty either to be honest but would be delighted to make both Docherty and Stephane permanent signings.

Good time to go back to the Pars with a £200,000 offer for Nisbet. Pricks might want to do business now under the circumstances
