I agree that at times we did not appear to be as fit as claimed even with the triple training sessions.

 

Genero Zeefuik (although it was a short term loan) and Danny Swanson were not in exactly pristine condition.

Then there was times when people seemed to be rushed back into the squad too quickly - Bauben is one I can think of, maybe Dale Carrick?

 

Obviously some of these decisions were ultimately down to the manager and I am sure some of the work done has helped but personally I will be quite happy if the rigorous training is scaled back and we see a fresher, less lethargic team on a Saturday.

This season has been a bit of a bust since Europe. Happy that all this kind of stuff is happening now and not in the summer - gives us an 8 month bedding in period.

Get rid of the deadwood in our squad now and in the summer there will be less change.

Has been incredible continuity during this manager staff players changeover period.  Just as well we have someone overseeing this continuity.

Aye, that well know loser Neilson who had us ace the championship, finish 3rd, qualify for Europe and left is 2nd place in the table.

Good riddance to him I say....

 

Aye, that well known loser Neilson who had us knocked out the Scottish Cup even with the advantage of a 2 goal lead late on in the game (and then went on to class this as a win for the team as we had gained a "money spinning replay"), from 2-1 up got us knocked out of the League cup 3-2 at the first hurdle, got us pumped out of the Europa League Qualifying rounds losing a home tie to some Maltese nobodies and who has never beaten Celtic (in what, 8 attempts?) and only managed to scraped a one win against Hibs (with 6 attempts).

 

Good riddance to him I say....

You've picked 3 games from 3 seasons in his first managerial role, not great.

The Celtic point is weak as no other team has gotten close to them either, even those with greater resources.

As for Hibs, well, they're an established championship club that is sinking closer to a slow death. I'm sure that Robbie lost no sleep over them whatsoever.

Bottom line is that Robbie took us from admin to 2nd in the league in 3 seasons. The games you highlight were annoying but a mere blip on the upward trajectory that we find ourselves on.

As it says. Not ideal but I'm sure there's plenty of sports scientists out there.

 

Yeah - one is as good as another. We should just pick the first one that comes along.

Seamless!

 

Much better than the disruptive traditional method where backroom staff, players, and playing style all get ripped up, shipped out, and started again.  :toff:

It's a free country good luck to Hill. Hearts will just go out and employ another sports specialist if one is needed. I would imagine there is plenty of them out there looking for a job.

I may have had a long day, but are we accepting "re-link" as a word?

Absolutely ******* not.
