It will take a change of manager to get me to buy a season ticket this year, if by some miracle Craig Levein has us playing entertaining football next season,  I can always buy a ticket for the matches I can get to, I won't hold my breath. if he makes a shop front of the new season and gets the bullet, half season tickets are usually available. I won't be stuck if I want to go. My contribution to FOH is unaffected by this action, I'll be there when He ain't.

I will hold my nose and buy one but I totally understand your position, if I sat on my own I probably would wait or buy individual match tickets.

I meant Macphee wanted him here in part to keep him fit and closer.

I can argue about his signing, he was garbage in most games including humiliations at ER, Livi and quite a few games against the ugly sisters amongst others.  A few good games against Aberdeen in a three against at Stevie May who they shelled long balls too. 31 games in 30 months at the club 🙈🤷🏾‍♂️. Thank **** he’s away in the summer.

Yeah... the 1st part... You cannot possibly believe that. If you do genuinely think that, you've gone too deep in your criticism. IMO

 

Yes, you can ''argue'' about his signing, but I did say I agreed with you.

One minute you're saying he should go, the next you're saying he should revise his tactics. Make your mind up!

 

I do think his time is up as our 1st team head coach.  He's over complicated things and it's not worked.

Its not if you are within the game. Execution is a different story.

 

Cathro was a risk and a highly regarded coach the problem was his man management and personality. Water under the bridge though.

Sounds a bit extreme. Could we not just sack him?

H.M.F.C. the S.P.L.'s most unambitious & worst performing board.

Continued Failure - SAD, SAD, SAD.

                                                                                                     P   W     D    L        F     A      Pts    Win%                                 F        A        Pts

37  15    6   16  41  48  51   40.54  per game - 1.12   1.3   1.34       

  1. Scunnered fans deserted the end of season player parade. What does that tell you?

  2. Just one win out of 14 post split matches for loser Levein – and counting.

  3. Since the new year Celtic, Rangers, Kilmarnock, Hibs and Dundee have all come to Tynecastle and won in addition to the draws Livingston and St Mirren achieved.

 

  1. Since beating Dundee last October Levein has won 26pts out of 26 matches and scored 21 goals. Only TWENTY ONE!

 

  1. Levein's managerial record - Seven managerial positions. Won nothing. Sacked twice. Every successor bettered his performances. Ann Budge's poor judgement hired a failure. She seems besotted with failure, including Levein's mediocre coaches.

 

  1. Ann Budge's oft stated red line of 4th is unacceptable has long been laughed at.

  2. Ann Budge's failed 5 year plan and European football – another of her jokes.

  3. Is the board's next step to push Levein back into the D.o.F. post and sign another non-success in his place for Levein to lord it over? If so, more money wasted and Levein's 3rd sacking in all but name. Or will he be offered the cop-out of resigning / sacking?

  4. Has Steve Clarke, the best manager in Scotland for two seasons, been approached to succeed Levein? In his first full season Clarke went from bottom to top six. Now Killie are lying 3rd with a record points tally and a chance at European football from a population of circa 46,500. Clarke would probably have got Hearts into Europe.

  5. Why has a new manager not been put in place so he can plan buying new players? If Clarke hasn't been approached it proves the board's lack of ambition for the club and their loyal long suffering fans.

  6. With the latest news that two more Hearts players are out injured for the rest of the season, one has to ask questions about the training. I think included below are those who have been injured and missed games this season :

  7. Berra / Souttar / Smith / Dunne / Dikamona / Brandon / Godinho / Mitchell (will not play again this season) / Garrucio (will not play again this season) / Haring / Djoum / Morrison (will not play again this season) / Naismith (been out for 2 spells – and may not play again this season) / Cochrane / Clare (arrived injured) / Ikpeazu / Keena (will not play again this season) / Wighton. Will Ikpeazu play again this season? Possibly, but out of desperation.

  8. More than half of the above would have been certain starters. Over 140 games missed by the above collectively. This statistic was compiled with 6 games left to play. Could be more! Surely training methods have to be looked at, and desperately playing players when not 100% fit?

  1. Levein's childish barbs and put-downs to those in the game are an embarrassment to the club. In so doing he displays his own perceived immaturity and insecurities.

  2. Levein twice accused his players at Hearts and Dundee United of being cheats and taking money under false pretences, cancelling their (Hearts) holidays. With Hearts as with Scotland, he is very good at taking the money and delivering failure himself. He said he could write a book about his time with Scotland. On which shelves should we look for it, fiction or comedy?

  3. Levein's failure at Leicester. After 30 games he accrued only 26pts, an average of 0.87 goals for and 0.97 goals against and 0.866 pts a game. In true Levein fashion he blamed the board for not giving him time. Rob Kelly one of his coaches, allegedly with no management experience, succeeded him, and with Levein's team, accrued 20pts from 9 games. Mediocrity seems to be a recurring theme for Levein.

  4. After lucky Scottish Cup draws against four lower division teams, including a junior team and a replay. Lady luck, a fluke, not merit, says Hearts could win the Scottish Cup. If this happened the hugely failing Hearts board would think all is well and to the detriment of the club Levein's years of mediocrity would continue.

  5. The board's shocking misuse of money on an incomplete, poorly planned, costly stand is a monument to egos and incompetence, and who is profiting?

  6. Levein's made or sanctioned circa 113 signings, many very poor. A shocking waste of money. Remember Vanacek? He claimed he could score goals. Levein hooked him early in his second game then publicly humiliated him playing him only once since. What has Levein and the coaching staff been doing about Vanacek's alleged lack of fitness? An alleged goal scorer not allowed to play and Levein uses the excuse of injuries to strikers! Why has Vanacek not been used? He came in January, it's now May. Is he fit or has the petulant Levein taken a sulk? Does Levein ruin players?

  7. In his first stint at Hearts Steve Fulton a loyal Hearts player found out he wasn't wanted by reading it in the papers when on holiday. Gary McSwegan was made to train on his own. Levein said he was trying to sicken him in order to transfer him. Is Vanacek being treated similarly? Levein's track record says it's reasonable to believe. Heart's fans won't forget Levein's treatment of Gary Locke. Man-mismanagement!

  8. Hearts, the club that does not allow freedom of polite factual expression in its 'Kickback' website. If the comment is against the club they get banned. I and others were. I had one printed, the second hidden, then I was banned. Fear of the truth?

  9. Craig Levein – Over rated. Over paid. Over praised. Over protected by the sporting press has a huge track record of 'Under Achievement'. A C.V. showing no success and Ann Budge chose him. WHY? Together they have given Hearts five wasteful years. Colossal bad judgement by Budge! No quality boss would tolerate the diminishing returns on performance Hearts have racked up. 4th is unacceptable???

  10. Shame on the board, and especially the toothless Foundation board members for failing the fans. Hearts are Scottish football's third largest revenue collector. The unambitious and continually failing Hearts board and their manager are collectively not fit for purpose.

The Levein stuff is quite telling, however I do think you are being over-critical of Budge. In my opinion, the only mistake she has made is in giving Levein total control of the football side and a place on the board. Big budget projects like new stands have a habit of over-running, so I certainly would not single her out for this.

 

If Levein is here next season, a huge percentage of our support will go into meltdown and I suspect Budge will not even be able to take her seat in the stand without getting abuse. She must be aware of the growing supporter anger and general apathy. The tiny Hearts travelling support to Aberdeen last week has to be a warning on what is ahead

 

We held onto Cathro way too long and this held us back for an entire year as the key summer signings had already been made. With this in mind, I really hope she removes the manager after the final, win or lose. If she doesn't, to my mind she then becomes a major target for criticism for not having the clubs best interests at heart. Hopefully this does not happen though. 

 

If we win the final, I will happily think of Levein as a playing and managerial legend, as long as he is not here next season.

Not sure if we held onto Cathro too long, what signings were made under him in the summer that Levein didn't use in his team? Lafferty/Berra/Smith?

Exactly.  Cathro responsible for 3 of our best 4 recent signings.  As  Meat Loaf said, 3 out of 4 aint bad😎

It sounds like it came from the same sort of folk that organised that plane banner. Slavering idiots. :D  11-13 is a cracker - it's all the same point. 21 shows a very pleasing world of butt-hurt. Rabble-rousing rants - they've probably been in existence since the original "Ogg is a menace to the rest of our caveman community! His behaviour is unacceptable!!!" rant scratched on to the cave walls.

  4. After lucky Scottish Cup draws against four lower division teams, including a junior team and a replay. Lady luck, a fluke, not merit, says Hearts could win the Scottish Cup. If this happened the hugely failing Hearts board would think all is well and to the detriment of the club Levein's years of mediocrity would continue.

  5. The board's shocking misuse of money on an incomplete, poorly planned, costly stand is a monument to egos and incompetence, and who is profiting?

  6. Levein's made or sanctioned circa 113 signings, many very poor. A shocking waste of money. Remember Vanacek? He claimed he could score goals. Levein hooked him early in his second game then publicly humiliated him playing him only once since. What has Levein and the coaching staff been doing about Vanacek's alleged lack of fitness? An alleged goal scorer not allowed to play and Levein uses the excuse of injuries to strikers! Why has Vanacek not been used? He came in January, it's now May. Is he fit or has the petulant Levein taken a sulk? Does Levein ruin players?

  7. In his first stint at Hearts Steve Fulton a loyal Hearts player found out he wasn't wanted by reading it in the papers when on holiday. Gary McSwegan was made to train on his own. Levein said he was trying to sicken him in order to transfer him. Is Vanacek being treated similarly? Levein's track record says it's reasonable to believe. Heart's fans won't forget Levein's treatment of Gary Locke. Man-mismanagement!

  8. Hearts, the club that does not allow freedom of polite factual expression in its 'Kickback' website. If the comment is against the club they get banned. I and others were. I had one printed, the second hidden, then I was banned. Fear of the truth?

  9. Craig Levein – Over rated. Over paid. Over praised. Over protected by the sporting press has a huge track record of 'Under Achievement'. A C.V. showing no success and Ann Budge chose him. WHY? Together they have given Hearts five wasteful years. Colossal bad judgement by Budge! No quality boss would tolerate the diminishing returns on performance Hearts have racked up. 4th is unacceptable???

  10. Shame on the board, and especially the toothless Foundation board members for failing the fans. Hearts are Scottish football's third largest revenue collector. The unambitious and continually failing Hearts board and their manager are collectively not fit for purpose.

 

This is ridiculously over the top.

37  15    6   16  41  48  51   40.54  per game - 1.12   1.3   1.34       

  1. Scunnered fans deserted the end of season player parade. What does that tell you?

  2. Just one win out of 14 post split matches for loser Levein – and counting.

  3. Since the new year Celtic, Rangers, Kilmarnock, Hibs and Dundee have all come to Tynecastle and won in addition to the draws Livingston and St Mirren achieved.

 

  1. Since beating Dundee last October Levein has won 26pts out of 26 matches and scored 21 goals. Only TWENTY ONE!

 

  1. Levein's managerial record - Seven managerial positions. Won nothing. Sacked twice. Every successor bettered his performances. Ann Budge's poor judgement hired a failure. She seems besotted with failure, including Levein's mediocre coaches.

 

  1. Ann Budge's oft stated red line of 4th is unacceptable has long been laughed at.

  2. Ann Budge's failed 5 year plan and European football – another of her jokes.

  3. Is the board's next step to push Levein back into the D.o.F. post and sign another non-success in his place for Levein to lord it over? If so, more money wasted and Levein's 3rd sacking in all but name. Or will he be offered the cop-out of resigning / sacking?

  4. Has Steve Clarke, the best manager in Scotland for two seasons, been approached to succeed Levein? In his first full season Clarke went from bottom to top six. Now Killie are lying 3rd with a record points tally and a chance at European football from a population of circa 46,500. Clarke would probably have got Hearts into Europe.

  5. Why has a new manager not been put in place so he can plan buying new players? If Clarke hasn't been approached it proves the board's lack of ambition for the club and their loyal long suffering fans.

  6. With the latest news that two more Hearts players are out injured for the rest of the season, one has to ask questions about the training. I think included below are those who have been injured and missed games this season :

  7. Berra / Souttar / Smith / Dunne / Dikamona / Brandon / Godinho / Mitchell (will not play again this season) / Garrucio (will not play again this season) / Haring / Djoum / Morrison (will not play again this season) / Naismith (been out for 2 spells – and may not play again this season) / Cochrane / Clare (arrived injured) / Ikpeazu / Keena (will not play again this season) / Wighton. Will Ikpeazu play again this season? Possibly, but out of desperation.

  8. More than half of the above would have been certain starters. Over 140 games missed by the above collectively. This statistic was compiled with 6 games left to play. Could be more! Surely training methods have to be looked at, and desperately playing players when not 100% fit?

  1. Levein's childish barbs and put-downs to those in the game are an embarrassment to the club. In so doing he displays his own perceived immaturity and insecurities.

  2. Levein twice accused his players at Hearts and Dundee United of being cheats and taking money under false pretences, cancelling their (Hearts) holidays. With Hearts as with Scotland, he is very good at taking the money and delivering failure himself. He said he could write a book about his time with Scotland. On which shelves should we look for it, fiction or comedy?

  3. Levein's failure at Leicester. After 30 games he accrued only 26pts, an average of 0.87 goals for and 0.97 goals against and 0.866 pts a game. In true Levein fashion he blamed the board for not giving him time. Rob Kelly one of his coaches, allegedly with no management experience, succeeded him, and with Levein's team, accrued 20pts from 9 games. Mediocrity seems to be a recurring theme for Levein.

  4. After lucky Scottish Cup draws against four lower division teams, including a junior team and a replay. Lady luck, a fluke, not merit, says Hearts could win the Scottish Cup.

I have no passion for a 4th manager in 3 or 4 years. Our problems - certainly the high squad turnover - are partly down to chopping and changing manager. Changing the manager again doesn't seem the smartest solution to me. If you give a manager 3 year contract, give him 3 years, unless he's an obvious disaster like Cathro was. Levein is not an obvious disaster. 

 

If you're a high level club you can afford to chop and change and throw money at the latest big name manager. If you're us, every new manager is a risky appointment.

Come on Enzo, everyone knows McPhee was the reason we found Smith, Levein had done the deal with Berra before Cathro came along. Lafferty attracted to us by Cathro or McPhee?  Moneys on the latter. One of your poorer Levein put-down attempts. Don’t mind you having a go at him, it’s your right, but don’t tell porkies to do it.

The Steve Clarke chat is absolute fantasy. He's there because it's a club that means something to him and he's doing them a favour. When he leaves Killie it will be to manage either Scotland, a good Championship or lower EPL team. We have absolutely zero chance of landing him.

Now Killie are lying 3rd with a record points tally and a chance at European football from a population of circa 46,500. Clarke would probably have got Hearts into Europe.

  5. Why has a new manager not been put in place so he can plan buying new players? If Clarke hasn't been approached it proves the board's lack of ambition for the club and their loyal long suffering fans.

  6. With the latest news that two more Hearts players are out injured for the rest of the season, one has to ask questions about the training. I think included below are those who have been injured and missed games this season :

  7. Berra / Souttar / Smith / Dunne / Dikamona / Brandon / Godinho / Mitchell (will not play again this season) / Garrucio (will not play again this season) / Haring / Djoum / Morrison (will not play again this season) / Naismith (been out for 2 spells – and may not play again this season) / Cochrane / Clare (arrived injured) / Ikpeazu / Keena (will not play again this season) / Wighton. Will Ikpeazu play again this season? Possibly, but out of desperation.

  8. More than half of the above would have been certain starters. Over 140 games missed by the above collectively. This statistic was compiled with 6 games left to play. Could be more! Surely training methods have to be looked at, and desperately playing players when not 100% fit?

  1. Levein's childish barbs and put-downs to those in the game are an embarrassment to the club. In so doing he displays his own perceived immaturity and insecurities.

  2. Levein twice accused his players at Hearts and Dundee United of being cheats and taking money under false pretences, cancelling their (Hearts) holidays. With Hearts as with Scotland, he is very good at taking the money and delivering failure himself. He said he could write a book about his time with Scotland. On which shelves should we look for it, fiction or comedy?

  3. Levein's failure at Leicester. After 30 games he accrued only 26pts, an average of 0.87 goals for and 0.97 goals against and 0.866 pts a game. In true Levein fashion he blamed the board for not giving him time. Rob Kelly one of his coaches, allegedly with no management experience, succeeded him, and with Levein's team, accrued 20pts from 9 games. Mediocrity seems to be a recurring theme for Levein.

  4. After lucky Scottish Cup draws against four lower division teams, including a junior team and a replay. Lady luck, a fluke, not merit, says Hearts could win the Scottish Cup. If this happened the hugely failing Hearts board would think all is well and to the detriment of the club Levein's years of mediocrity would continue.

  5. The board's shocking misuse of money on an incomplete, poorly planned, costly stand is a monument to egos and incompetence, and who is profiting?

  6. Levein's made or sanctioned circa 113 signings, many very poor. A shocking waste of money. Remember Vanacek? He claimed he could score goals. Levein hooked him early in his second game then publicly humiliated him playing him only once since. What has Levein and the coaching staff been doing about Vanacek's alleged lack of fitness? An alleged goal scorer not allowed to play and Levein uses the excuse of injuries to strikers! Why has Vanacek not been used? He came in January, it's now May. Is he fit or has the petulant Levein taken a sulk? Does Levein ruin players?

  7. In his first stint at Hearts Steve Fulton a loyal Hearts player found out he wasn't wanted by reading it in the papers when on holiday. Gary McSwegan was made to train on his own. Levein said he was trying to sicken him in order to transfer him. Is Vanacek being treated similarly? Levein's track record says it's reasonable to believe. Heart's fans won't forget Levein's treatment of Gary Locke. Man-mismanagement!

  8. Hearts, the club that does not allow freedom of polite factual expression in its 'Kickback' website. If the comment is against the club they get banned. I and others were. I had one printed, the second hidden, then I was banned. Fear of the truth?

  9. Craig Levein – Over rated. Over paid. Over praised. Over protected by the sporting press has a huge track record of 'Under Achievement'. A C.V. showing no success and Ann Budge chose him. WHY? Together they have given Hearts five wasteful years. Colossal bad judgement by Budge! No quality boss would tolerate the diminishing returns on performance Hearts have racked up. 4th is unacceptable???

  10. Shame on the board, and especially the toothless Foundation board members for failing the fans. Hearts are Scottish football's third largest revenue collector. The unambitious and continually failing Hearts board and their manager are collectively not fit for purpose.

Casting up things from 15+ years is quite frankly pathetic. Someone has too much time on his/her hands.....

Any idea what his/her previous nom de plume was on here. 

 

I don’t follow buddy 🤷🏻‍♂️ Clearly only stumbled across the most famous Hearts forum on the planet today. It’s easily done tbh. I’m sure there’s plenty of Life long Hearts fans out there who’ve never heard of jkb

H.M.F.C. the S.P.L.'s most unambitious & worst performing board.

Continued Failure - SAD, SAD, SAD.

                                                                                                     P   W     D    L        F     A      Pts    Win%                                 F        A        Pts

37  15    6   16  41  48  51   40.54  per game - 1.12   1.3   1.34       

  1. Scunnered fans deserted the end of season player parade. What does that tell you?

  2. Just one win out of 14 post split matches for loser Levein – and counting.

  3. Since the new year Celtic, Rangers, Kilmarnock, Hibs and Dundee have all come to Tynecastle and won in addition to the draws Livingston and St Mirren achieved.

 

  1. Since beating Dundee last October Levein has won 26pts out of 26 matches and scored 21 goals. Only TWENTY ONE!

 

  1. Levein's managerial record - Seven managerial positions. Won nothing. Sacked twice. Every successor bettered his performances. Ann Budge's poor judgement hired a failure. She seems besotted with failure, including Levein's mediocre coaches.

 

  1. Ann Budge's oft stated red line of 4th is unacceptable has long been laughed at.

  2. Ann Budge's failed 5 year plan and European football – another of her jokes.

  3. Is the board's next step to push Levein back into the D.o.F. post and sign another non-success in his place for Levein to lord it over? If so, more money wasted and Levein's 3rd sacking in all but name. Or will he be offered the cop-out of resigning / sacking?

This in spades. People still buying season tickets when that clown is in charge are in denial. Burying your heads in the sand hoping that it might go away. We have a weak support who are just happy to be involved with following a club. No passion. No fight.
