So far Keegan Ayre, Patrick Noubissie, Des McCaffery and Mickael Antoine-Curier have been let go by the Hibees.  It seems likely that a few more will follow. According to the Scotsman, Mixu is looking the squad from 33 to around 25.  That seems an easy enough figure considering some of the less talented players we have around at the moment.

I’d rather see a smaller, though not threadbare, squad of better quality than we have at the moment for next season so I figure he’s doing the right thing here.

Mixu has said he would like to sign 3 more players and is targetting “quality”.  Already, in have come David Van Zanden from StMirren, David Rocastle is on trial for a few days and Fabien Yantorno is training with the squad whilst recovering from his injury with a view to signing once fit.

Personally, I hope that Franck Sauzee’s comments about having a plan for Hibs bear fruit and that he’s ready to bring a few French internationals onto the scene.  We all have our dreams….

    I’d be happy to see a smaller squad with a little more quality too. I think Hibs have too many ‘journeymen’ professionals and I have a concern about some of the more creative players leaving the club this close season.

    I reckon the superb Hibs youth system can alleviate the potential problems of injury and suspension for a small squad. It seems rare than any of these young lads do themselves anything ut justice when given the opportunity.
