Pat Fenlon: Expects Hibs to bounce back from recent defeats

Fenlon takes Hibs to Tynecastle next Sunday for the clash with Hearts on the back of home defeats to Motherwell and Malmo.

Hibs looked like recovering from their Europa League qualifying nightmare against the Swedes by earning a draw with Motherwell - only to lose a goal seven minutes from time.

But Fenlon was content with much of Hibernian's display in the first league game of the campaign, and he believes there are good reasons to be optimistic for the Hearts match after his charges won 1-0 on their last trip to Tynecastle.

Fenlon said: "Last year we started with a 3-0 defeat at Dundee United and we went on a fantastic run. That's the target this season.

"Everyone says Motherwell are the second best team in the league and we matched them in most departments. Defensively we were solid for most of the game.

"We need to add more in trying to score goals but we will do that over the course of time.

"We'll go there and try to win the game like we did the last time.

"It's three points I'm more interested in, although the supporters will enjoy it if we can go there and win."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
