Can anyone give the background to his celebration? Why is he pointing to his arm!

Where does he play in a starting 11 with a fully fit squad ?

Taking into consideration we only play with one up front.

His work rate is decent, made late cover tackle in our 18yd box against Dundee, so I’m going to say midfield, in the 3 of a 4-2-3-1 maybe?

it sounds like it has taken him 6 months to get over his injury and get used to playing in this team/league. Hopefully he keeps it up and keeps getting better.

3421 with him and Naismith in the AM roles behind Uche. If we are playing 3 atb.

Would agree with Leveins comments last night that anyone watching him reguarly would have seen slow but steady improvement week by week. He is now getting close to where we need him to be in terms of starting 11 performance IMO. Not quite the finished article but defo looks like he can operate at this level with more experience. Think he has been given fair crack of whip by hearts fans tbh and most criticism has been of playing him when not ready as opposed to his ability. His workrate is now noticable and refreshing to see which suggests he understands that part of his game. Not ITK but suspect Naismiths influence on him during the trg week is having an effect in all areas.

Sean Clare and some of the comments directed his way is proof most football supporters have no patience.

 

Clare was/is a project and needs time.....not constant criticism. Wighton is in the same position.

Jesus, Gashauskis - reading this makes me feel dizzy. We might actually be quite good at the end of an injury ridden season.

Even during his least effective outings,  there was always something to suggest that he had talent, a turn of pace or a piece of skill.

 

I couldn't understand those who couldn't see it and insisted that he offered nothing.

For those of us who went on record to big him up despite a slow start these are very happy days in fact it’s borderline smugness I’m feeling. More than anything however I’m just delighted for him, brilliant stuff..

As his fitness has improved he has gained pace. He always glided when he ran like a proper athlete but just lacked the half a yard. He now not only goes away from players but is great at closing down in the advanced position he was playing last night. 

 

His goal against Livingston and last night is clear evidence of a player who has some class. He even has a reasonable dig on his left side making him somewhat two footed. 

 

There is tremendous potential with this lad and I don’t think we have any idea how good he could be. 

 

I sense playing alongside Naismith and Uche he could be very valuable in the coming few months.  

 

And I can’t wait to see him after a full pre season.

Was unlucky to hit the post against st j with another great hit with his left peg. Even if he is two footed its a great sign of returning confidence if he’s pinging them in with both fe

He was shite.

 

However I hold my hands up. I was wrong. He is becoming a good player for us. As many people did point out a few weeks back that he would come good.

 

He maybe the type of player that doesn't do much but is a match winner and can get a goal from nothing. 

 

Well done Sean Clare and I am delighted u are proving me and others wrong.

Levein hit the nail on the head a couple of weeks ago when he called him a difference maker.

He might not be the guy at the hub of it all, making the whole team tick, but he is the type that can turn one point into three in a stuffy game where no one else is able to make a breakthrough.

 

Very exciting times ahead!

I’m hopeful Clare can be our Tom Rogic. Looking around our competitors for similar players he seems to be the nearest potential match. Tall, direct attacking midfielder, a decent dribbler with an eye for goal.

If you come with a big reputation given to you by expert football people then you must have something about you.

That's why I had no problem giving the lad time to settle.

Most of the clowns who give him abuse are clueless

****ing odd people on this site.

 

For what it’s worth I understand the Rogic comparison and I am not a Celtic fan.

 

Are Hearts fans only supposed to know how our own players are. We can’t form an opinion on a player with another team?

FFS I’m just saying Clare seems closest in style and physical attributes to Rogic than any other attacking mid in scotland and could aspire to be as influential and play a similar role as he does at Celtic. 

 

I agree with this too. Rogic is a decent comparison though I think Clare is a bit more dynamic and will get box to box. Same kind of style in attack though.

Amazing that after a serious injury and moving to another country and league set up he never started tearing up the league for arse paper. It comes as such a massive shock that he’s now looking really good. How can this even be possible when he was not a world beater right away? It truly is a total mystery to me.

 

Im even beginning to wonder if football players are actually just normal human beings like the rest of us. That they are not in fact robots??

What’s wrong comparing one of our players to a very good player? Bizarre to call someone out as a Celtic fan for that. 

 

Just what I was thinking.

 

Rogic is one of the best in the league, wouldn't mind more of our players being compared to the best in the league.

The Rogic comparison is an interesting one and I was mentioning it to my brother after the game on Friday night how similar Clare is when he is running with the ball towards goal as Rogic.

 

Also interesting to note that both players have came through the Nike academy.

It’s not that odd. He was shite for weeks. He’s now starting to play well, and has made some important contributions in the last few games and is now justifying his place in the starting XI. I’m sure any right-thinking Hearts fan will be happy about that, not just those in the smug “I-told-you-so” brigade.

It's extremely weird how those who were most vocal about his form told everyone that they'd happily give him praise when he deserved it. They don't seem to be floating about now.

 

If you think I'm going to be smug about a player I was backing for weeks, taking pelters for saying he'd come good starting to come good then you'd be 100% correct.

Only because you read my posts and I've backed him since his 1st appearance.

Because for some of them, it would be like Michael Stewart giving Craig Levein praise, instead of hiding behind his smartarsery!

Get a life you saddo. I think you will find Trolling is banned. Multi Trolling??  You seem to forget this forum is for all Hearts supprters. We have the same aspirations. People like you do nothing for JKB apart from promoting JKB is for @srseh0les......

 

What exactly do you hope to gain? Admiration from the rest of the people who have far too much time on their hands? Perhaps you could get a job, or a wife - but that is as unlikely as you allowing others to express their opinions.
