Fenlon Delighted With Transfer Window

Pat-FenlonFor the past month, Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has insisted that his objective for the transfer window was to retain the services of three loan stars, Leigh Griffiths, Ryan McGivern and Jorge Claros for the remainder of the season. That was achieved after considerable negotiations between the clubs, and in an added bonus, a further two midfielders have arrived. Scott Robertson has moved to Easter Road on a two and a half year deal from Blackpool and Hibs also completed a last minute swoop to sign Matt Done on loan from Barnsley. In addition, St Johnstone’s Liam Craig has signed a pre-contract and will join the club in the summer. Continue reading

McPake: Working Hard To Bring Club Back To The Top

james-mcpake-image-1-290356226The season so far has been a massive improvement from last season both in terms of results and performances which everyone can see are night and day from last season. Last season was a huge disappointment for the football club, escaping relegation with a game to go isn’t good enough or a club like ours. So the main thing this season was improving on that, we didn’t start great at Dundee United but that’s still the only game that we have been battered, and that was without maybe four or five of the players who have came in and have done so well.

In terms of highlights the ones people will look at are the wins against Hearts and Celtic which were great for the club but for me the highlights have been the way we’ve bounced back from defeats and a series of bad runs that have crept in. Last season if that happened then we struggled and never looked like turning the corner after a bad run of results.

At the start of season the aim was to finish top 6 but in my opinion if we finish 5th or 6th then we as players and as a club are underachieving, top 6 should be a given for a club like Hibernian. So far we are achieving what people said was our aim but we want to push on and finish as high as second. Second is a realistic target in my opinion but it’s going to take a lot of hard work from now until the end of the season. I say second because I believe Celtic will comfortably win the league with the quality and the size of squad they have. That’s not lack of ambition from me I just think its common sense! We also have the Scottish cup to come and a tough test against a good Aberdeen side but we’re at home so we’re confident going into that and we’re all desperate to get back to Hampden after last year.

Last week’s announcement from the club that Leigh Griffiths and Ryan McGivern are going to be with us until the end of the season has given everyone a massive boost. Both players have been excellent so far this season and we were all desperate for the club to keep them. We’re also hoping a deal can be done that allows Jorge Claros to stay.

All in all it’s been a good turnaround and we feel we are starting to win the fans back after the disappointing couple of seasons they’ve had. However we realise there is still a lot of work and improvement that can be done and we are working hard to improve more and push on further and finish as high as we can in order to make the fans proud of the Hibernian team again.
