Hearts Game

Recommended Posts

Well we have totally Hibsed it ... feels like the start of last season. We flattered to deceive against diddy teams but as soon as we faced serious opposition we collapsed.

I could have accepted maybe a 2-0 defeat.....but getting close to cricket score territory is disappointing

We won't be playing the likes of Hearts much this season, however if we have ambitions of promotion we have to get rid of the donkeys in our team.

Last week against Raith we went into a mini collapse after we scored where they looked by far the better team.

Could be the best thing that happened to us. Hearts were on a high today and all it did was to simply show that we are far from being a team that could hold its own in the premier division. Perhaps we got the tactics wrong at the start but you cant foresee those first two goals.  Falkirk will provide us with more answers.

Poor performance, disappointed at the lack of passion.  Naismith at  5'10'' should not be scoring with a header. No one taking responsibility and winning the ball

Given we could have lost by 3 and STILL went through...... that is a poor, poor result !!!!!!! 👎

He deserves credit for turning things around over the last 6 months but Robbo has to carry the can for that one.  We were on an 18 game unbeaten run and the system was changed to something designed primarily not to hammered. We very much got what we deserved with that.

This defeat has further reaching consequences than just this 90 minutes.

1) the club has been deprived of much needed revenue from the next round particularly if we got a glamour tie that could have been shown on TV

2) how does this affect the players just a week from the season opener.

We can gripe all we like about the injustice of the SPFL only deducting  two points from Hearts when precedent and logic dictated a three point deduction and  3-0 win awarded to Cove. I am in no doubt that that decision was contrived to keep the Group alive for the benefit of the sponsors and BT Sports.

However, we were left with the simple enough task of not having to lose to a Hearts team who, apart from 45 minutes against a Cowdenbeath team depleted in numbers, had been decidedly average.

We fell abysmally short in what should have been a straightforward task and deserve to be out of the competition.

The task now for the manager and coaching staff is to try to ensure that today's humiliation does not dent confidence too much and to get the league campaign off to a positive start.

Fer fecks sake - Did anyone see the first 2 or even the first 3 goals - All GREAT finishes - No answer to that. For the first 30 minutes there was little in that. Shure Robbo gotthe tactics wrong in the end BUT it was wholly understandable why he set out the team as he did. That was NOT a humiliation - We went behind to a better team and there was absolutely NOTHING straightforward about it. Cant believe that the "vultures" are circling already. The season STARTS next Saturday.

The fact we didn't have an issue with this and NO explanation was given is pretty galling to be honest.

Oh well that's a reality check but that's the teams who we would be playing IF we make promotion not pointing finger at anyone in particular but defending was shocking today. I was hoping at HT Robbo would put McCart on to try and keep it at 3 nil ☹️
