Any realistic targets on this early list of released players?


Players are released for various reasons, but 1 of them is not because he is young with a good footballing brain and pace with ability. So accept that whoever comes in it will mainly be because he has failed at his previous club.

or the new manager wants his own team, not all players are useless, some are let go because they were signed by the previous regime.

I think James Keatings would be worth taking a look at. Has had health problems but remember him playing for Hibs. Can get stuck in and has a good right foot

“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

I reckon I'd look good playing for Hibs.

The disparity in wages between leagues is growing all the time. A back-up Championship player released this summer will be on 5x more than we can pay.

A League 1 player released (presumably because they couldn't cut the mustard at that level) will be on more than we can pay. That's not to say they wouldn't be interested in joining us, but can you imagine how hard it must be to go from earning, say, £2,500 a week to something closer to £1,000?

There comes a time in the summer when players need to make those decisions, and some have no choice if interest in them is scarce. The manager has a real job on his hands to motivate these players given the significant drop in salary.

Then you look at non-league. Guys who are playing week in, week out, for something like £600 a week. Then they get their chance in the FL for a bit more money - suddenly the motivation to play for your salary is one less thing for a manager to worry about.
