get off yer bum an sing radge
5 goals in 50 odd games doesn’t fill me with confidence

Me neither. Ok to say he didnt score many in Swiss super leagie but then 1 goal in 15 in German 2nd aint good, and he is 22 so not exactly breaking through

We all know we don't score enough goals something that even Lennon has even highlighted , so why even go for a guy with this sort of cv ?

And the players that come here with a bit of a record never live up to it.

So we'll just wait n see, might play behind the striker, might play wide. Might only be playing 15 minutes a game.

Goals don't tell the full story.

Heard tonight at the game that Dylan isnt interested in sitting down with hibs regarding sorting out a contract.
Please note this was only what I was told from someone who gets some inside info , take it for what it is.

I've heard nothing, but as he has a 'verbal contract on the table' then I'd say this is quite likely to be true.

Supposedly.

Hibs*have asked Swiss club Grasshoppers Zurich to extend the trial of striker Florian Kamberi by another week as manager Neil Lennon attempts to solve his side's scoring problems.*(Scotsman)

Makes no sense really. Lennon starts him most games recently but only offered verbal contract. He clearly isn’t that keen on keeping him at hibs? Hope he has something up his sleeve to replace him as he’s one of our best players, if you ask me.

My understanding is that a 'verbal contract' is the first stage in the negotiations, indicating that the club wants to keep you - and that is usually the starting point for the club & agent to then attempt to thrash out a deal acceptable to all. Once that is done, the club table the written offer which hopefully will requier tweaking at most and will be signed by all concerned.

If we haven't got past the verbal offer then I'm surmising that's because Dylan/Dylan's agent hasn't responded and is probably negotiating elsewhere.

I hope we can get Dylan to stay.

That’s how I’d imagine it works - the club will say they want to negotiate a new contract, probably indicate the length of the deal, then the players’ agent will respond. Or not, as seems to be the case here.

Dylan is probably weighing up his options, I’d expect holding off to see if an English club come in with a decent sized contract (bigger than we could offer).

Swiss boys stats ain't too impressive with 6 in 41 for Grasshoppers and only 1 in 15 with Karlsruher, however he was prolific with Grasshoppers U21's, scoring 21 in 26 games. He will be 23 in March. Doesn't look like he has made the step up but who's to say he can't regain his scoring touch in Scotland?

I always think it's a lottery up here. Our league has been awash with complete unknowns managing to score goals in our league. (Sammon, Higdon, McKay,Sutton, Moult etc) It's also been full of no mark strikers who have struggled to even score a goal (Dagnall, Stockton, many many too many huddies)

It's a gamble. But then every transfer is.

Totally agree, strikers up here all seem to be total hit or miss gambles. Big money, well know strikers don’t necessarily guarantee any more goals than unheard of lower league players. It often seems to be the case that some strikers also just “fit” at one club, like Billy McKay who has never replicated the form he showed during his first stint at Inverness.

If we sign this guy then hopefully he is more Malonga than Djedje...

Either am I tbh sick of " gie the boy a chance signings " would be nice to get someone in that you know what your getting.
That doesn’t always work though. James Collins goal scoring record was impeccable prior to signing for Hibs. Tell any Sheffield United fan that Matt Done is a crap player and they’d scoff. Jonathan Grounds is a hero to Birmingham City fans....Certain clubs and leagues can bring out the best and worst in players.

And picked up again when he left Hibs. This would surely indicate that the problem was with how we utilised him rather than his ability to find the back of the net.
