Maybe a better place to spend some time rather than his previous option of Crewe.

As long as they’re paying his wages this is a good move for all, if they aren’t it’s pretty pointless

Yes but wonder how much game time he’ll get there? At least it gets him out I guess
Well I guess that will be down to him. How he impresses in training, and how he establishes his reputation. It is at least a fresh start for him, which may be what you had meant.

His wages between now and the end of the season will be relatively small if we do have to cover part of them. Also, he’s under contract until 2023 so it may help put him in the shop window if nothing else.

Also, if it frees up a space in the 25 man squad for someone like Eriksen to come in then it will definitely be worth it.

Eriksen is definitely not coming if you believe most of the GPG uninformed masses :fishing:

That's probably the main benefit. Unlike, say, Marcus Forss, the lad clearly doesn't have a future with us, so we may as well try and maximise his resale value (which is currently next-to-nothing I suspect!)

I hope he's been in the weight room during his long layoff, as it won't be any picnic being kicked all over the place up there, unless the standard is such he can use his pace and trickery to get round them. Seems to be a failing common to our B team players who go out on loan.

Hibs are a lovely club and give players time to develop. Probably the right standard for him too - SPL stretches roughly from League One to Championship apart from the Glasgow two so gives him a good platform to get some games and kick on.
:eek:

The main disappointment with Valencia as a wide player was that he showed neither the ability, nor even the desire to go round people.
I hope that whoever scouted him is still on the naughty step, very unusual for us to get one so totally wrong.
Wish him well with his future career & look forward to fill his place in the squad with a serious upgrade

He didn’t look good enough when he signed and obviously isn’t good enough now.
swing and a miss.

Think this was a free hit signing - relatively low fee for someone who had done well in Poland but he simply doesn't have the physicality to make it here especially not at the current level we are at. Personally I'd be looking to sell but a loan move with a view to permanent would work equally well if the loaning club picks up the majority of his wages.

According to reliable Lyall, he's off to Spanish side Alcorcoran for 6 months.


Adios Valencia ☝

Football isn't a profit making business 🤷‍♂️there is a reason for FFP
I can assure you that it is not a loss making business either, and those that follow that route end up in the same position as Derby and Macclesfield. Football history is littered with examples of how the once mighty fell after following the philosophy of non profit. If you do not make a profit then you make a loss!
