Above is Gordon and wife Sarah entering Number 10 and below is a quick summary of his life so far:

Hibs have bought 21 year old Belgian Chelsea goalkeeper Yves Makabu-Kalamby as I predicted some time ago after he impressed during trials and hopefully he will at least be a partial problem to our goalkeeping deficincies of late

One that I did not predict was 20 year old German defender Torben Joneleit who we have on a one year loan from AS Monaco, John Collins's old club.

This makes five new players in total with ten already going out the door the other way!!
