Damn they got me in their web!  
 

I really need to use the bounce site more to help get it going.   Once more folk post on there than the other place, then it’s job done.   Then see if they go full Enoch Powell to try and win back lost posters.  
 

Be more than happy to have you. You'll find it an okay place to use.

As justified as that might be, it never makes sense to take the piss out of your own fans. I’d give them credit enough to not be that thick and childish.

Perhaps I worded it wrongly. I just took it as a bit of fun, whereas there are people (not suggesting you) who find outrage in anything.

Going to make a conscious effort to start using bounce as well.

My mother taught me if I didn't have anything nice to say then don't say it all, hence why I've not went full in on dot net.

Hopefully they get outbid by an English club. Think a championship club down south would be a much better career move. I’d probably find it hard to want him to continue to progress/do well, if he joined Celtic. If they act with the same arrogance they did with the McGinn transfer, we’ll be fine.

According to Twitterland of yore, Hibs have put a price tag of £5mil on Nisbet. Unsure if that is realistic to be honest. If clubs are genuinely bidding £4mil for him, you'd think that should be too hard to turn down.

It's there to give fellow fans an option. Wire in.

Having a high initial asking price helps go maximise the money they can make from him. If they said “he’s available for £3.5m” then nobody would ever go above that. But if your initial asking price is higher, and there’s a few teams interested, you can get a bidding war that goes up to £4m+.

It’s interesting with transfers though. If McGinn goes to Man Utd/Liverpool for £40-50m then Hibs would get such a massive return they’d have no need to sell Nisbet this summer.

I think they have a decent manager and with a few good signings, should at least try and take on Celtic in their weakened state. It won’t last long but if the new manager flops then 2nd place is certainly not impossible.

Ross Graham looked a good prospect for Cove last season in the games I seen him play. Still a bit raw in terms of his positioning but at 20 that's understandable. Should be a good back up for you lot.

@CoveRangers1922 will be able to give you a fuller debrief than I have.

Ross Graham is definitely a promising talent and is highly thought of at Dundee Utd. We would have ideally liked him back at Balmoral but the thought of the Cove fans was always he'd been given a chance in the Championship next season and so it's turned out.

He gelled well with Ryan Strachan in the centre of our defence but as @FFC 1876 says his positioning at times could be better. Comes with experience and game time. Generally though he reads the game well, he's composed on the ball and his distribution is fairly solid. Solid in the air when defending but didn't offer much in the opposition box.

Unsure how strong the Pars central defence is but hopefully he gets enough minutes to show what he can do. Will be a decent acquisition for you. Doubt he'll let you down.

We have a Lithuanian international and Paul Watson as our centre halves, so he'll be doing well to dislodge either from a starting place. Vytas looked solid from the few games he played at the end of last season and Paul Watson is a top Championship performer.

Unless Pedro plans on going with a back 3 like he did against Spartans.

Awk, no signings needed. That team will beast this league what with having 12 players playing every week. Subs are for wimps too.

Sounds like Ross will be benched and get game time only when you're scudding teams or if either of the two get injured; hopefully the former!
