Our best players were all defenders,  Good to see that mostly, we didn't look so fragile at the back, particularly against set pieces.   An encouraging performance against the probable runaway champions.  Play offs still in our grasp.

Decent performance and decent point.  2md half was a non event but we should view that as a point gained.  Pretty ballsy line up and subs by Mccann with 4 forwards on the pitch so I can't fault that.  There will be easier games to come so time to get up the table.  We need to start turning draws into wins though.

Well that was my first sight of ICT this season. So nice to see the Dump again. Point was a bonus against a stronger Hearts team. BBC commentary came from BBC Gorgie. Great comeback from McCann after the game. All strength to him and hope that the point gives Robbo a wee boost. As I said before let ICT climb up the Championship, get this damn season over and done with, keep us all safe and enjoy the terrace craic and camaraderie next season.

I'm a lot happier with that point than Tuesday's one. If we'd had more penetration going forward and sharpness in front of goal we might have sneaked a winner. 3 points at Dundee in midweek will make things rosier.

Well said IMH,I too thought it was TV Georgie, maybe cos 9000 virtual fans were Jambos. Billy Doda never said much about ICT players and TV during stoppage in play always panned to a Jambo. Rant over, I enjoyed the game and players gave their all.

Interesting switch up of formation by McCann who seemed to go with some kind of 4-1-3-2 or 4-4-2 diamond and it caught Hearts out for the first half hour or so but over time we seemed to become more and more cautious and became slower at moving the ball. Little support from either Duffy or Harper down the side which was perhaps down to McCann wanting to keep it tight at the back and it worked as Hearts weren't in it for most of the first half.

Good ball over the top from Keatings and excellent pace and strength b Storey to bench press that Jambo jobber to the floor and smash it past Gordon. Sloppy defending for the equaliser. Offside claims or not you cannot leave Boyce completely unmarked less than 6 yards out. Very poor to have three defenders all sucked towards the ball.

Second half was very niggly and due to the number of fouls no one could get any momentum going. Any time we did get a chance to launch an attack we were crowded out or the attempts at crosses were barely lifted off the ground. Some pretty iffy defending and keeping towards the end made things pretty nervous.

Walsh was atrocious. Whilst I am not sure about the second penalty claim for Carson the first was a clear spot kick as Carson was blatantly impeded. Leanne Crichton tried to excuse it saying Carson wouldn't get the ball anyway which seems a bizarre made up rule. The Kingsley challenge on MacGregor (I think) could easily have been a red as well. The only reason I think Walsh didn't show a red was because of his two overturned red cards from the other week.

Take a point. Hearts could have nicked it at the end. However at the same time it also looked possible we could have nicked it. Good effort. Hopefully the team will have the legs for the next game.

Very satisfactory end to a turbulent week at ICT

Yes it is and I am pleased with the way the club has communicated with the fans in an open and honest manner :clapping:

Thinking back to our infamous relegation season when Boyce scored 10 against us in 4 games and, along with Foran of course, played a big part in our demise, does anyone know how many times he has played against us and how many goals he has scored in those games?

Yep, I'd say a draw was fair too and it's a very good point, in fact it could be crucial in the cont of the league. 

Danny Devine was good tonight and probably was worthy of his man of the match award, I really don't get the stick he gets from ICT fans! 

The only worry I have is, we miss a goal who can get us up the table, if that was Boyce etc that had the chance Shane had at 1-0, it would have been a goal. 

 

I agree with a post from page one of this thread, I would also be happy if Neil were to be appointed full time (hopefully not though but I'd certainly like him as a future manager), he likes to play good football (or was this the style that JR plays too) and, imho he got the starting line up correct tonight so all in all, despite it being only a point tonight, I'm happy, and as you all know you well, I'm hard to please 😛

Even though I was watching on the box it was as if I was there. During the day I'd been building up to the game by posting updates on Facebook of my virtual trip up from Coventry 0 on the motorcycle. I left home at 0800 and got to the stadium around 1720. One or two thought I was actually travelling and they pointed out that I shouldn't be travelling from England to Scotland due to it being non essential travel and dear Nicola said it's against the law :rotflmao:

Anyway. I though we played well and deserved the point. The ref was whistle happy and stopped the flow of the game. Craig Gordon needs to grow a pair after his spat with Carson. And there really should have been an early red for whatshisface of Hearts.

The CTO report was published last night and now has video highlights of the goals and interviews added with Neil McCann and Miles Storey. He's the one in the Magic Hat.

We did well agianst a strong side...first 25minutes most impressive

I was impressed with Duffy, and the entire back line, good to see Danny D get BBC's MOTM. Carson looked pretty busy, and Sorey had a good game

We did miss someone like Kennedy or a properly fit Doran though.
