I thought I would update with some Hibs news seeing as hopefully as Hibs continue to do well (touch wood) the community will grow a bit. And that'll be helped by regular updates on here!
Major news stuff is the Hibs-Chelsea youth link that seems to be being put into motion by both clubs. Apparently Chelsea will send young players up here on loan for youth development and when they've had experience playing at a high level [SPL, UEFA cup... dare I say it?... Champions League? ;) ] we send them back to Chelsea. Seems like a good idea for both clubs if it works.
Dnipro, our opponents in the UEFA cup earlier this season made a £1M bid for Ivan Sproule which Hibs promptly rejected. Not bad for a player we payed £5k for a couple of months ago, eh?
More recent news? Antonio Murray is back in training after injections in his back; Hibs have become the first team in the SPL to take up short sponsors; Tony Mowbrary won BBC Scotland Manager of the Year; Steven Whittaker won BBC Scotland Young Player of the Year; Ivan Sproule won best individual performance of the year for his hat-trick against Rangers at Ibrox earlier this season; and Hibs now have a dodgy scoreboard at Easter Road.
I updated the User Info to have Hibs' last 5 results and next 5 fixtures as well as the up to date SPL Table!
Anybody going to Dundee this weekend?
