Levein’s time is up...

What a load of hysterical nonsense. If this was about a bad day yesterday then you might have a point - but it isn't. There's been a catalogue of piss poor performances where Hearts could play for a month and not score, never mind win.  Happy to cut the guys some  slack because of the injuries ( 3 of which were actually CBs - so not sure how that accounts for the dire stuff served up , creativity wise) but then it becomes apparent, week in, week out that Hearts aren't looking a bit sluggish, a bit out of sorts, a bit unlucky because players are getting back on their feet.  It is turgid football , week after week against some really poor opponents. In fact , against the worst teams in the division. That's the level of this playing squad right now. 

 

 

Amen. Well said.

 

That there are still people, though thankfully fewer and fewer by the week, still defending the continual failure of our manager and his underlings is as hilarious as it is staggering. Yesterday wasn't a one off, we've consistently underperformed and there are numerous stats as evidence of that. Poorest goals against in the top 6, poorest goals for in the top 6, defeats to the team sitting bottom of the league on 3 occasions, 2pts out of 9 at home to Dundee, Livingston and St Mirren since the break with just 2 goals scored etc etc. Its endless and we are going absolutely nowhere.

 

The huge financial backing the fans continue to provide the club is being wasted by people who are totally out of their depth and a manager who is so past it and finished that we can only hope the rumours of him retiring to Spain are true. Best place for him, adios.

We won't win anything with Levien as manager. Very predictable outlook and far too cautious/negative tactics. I thank Craig for his efforts in bringing this club back from the brink. Now is the time for fresh ideas as this club should be doing better. 

 

 

 

 

Levein never brought the club back from the brink it was AB and her money that did that. She installed Levein to look after the footballing side due to her own admission of not knowing enough about that side of things.

 

She could easily have appointed any Coach and had the same or even better advancement than we have had under Levein.

 

Some of his dreadful signings whether under his capacity as DOF or Coach have cost our club a lot of money and still are.

Marginally better in the league but still utter shite.  

 

We beat a junior side side in the Scottish cup and have the worst team in the Championship in the next round.  What would that prove if we win, other than the draw has been extremely kind for a change.

 

League Cup, we beat Motherwell at home to reach the semi, that was about it.

 

Hopefully Budge won’t judge a successful season on whether we can beat Auchinleck and Partick.

 

If Levein is still in charge by the time we play Partick then there is every possibility that we will be out of the cup anyway with his fear of losing and subsequent team selection and tactics.

 

Partick will have the relief of not playing in a league game and have nothing to lose by having a go at us on their own ground with a decent crowd.

If losing the Partick game meant getting rid of Levein then it's a decent second prize.

Fourth (maybe third at a push) is still within our graps as is the cup. We need to to get the injured players up to speed again though.

 

Fourth?

Aberdeen have scored 12 SPL goals more than us and have a +14 goal difference 

Kilmarnock have scored 4 SPL goals more than us and have a +10 goal difference

Hibs have scored 7 SPL goals more than us and have a +10 goal difference

 

For the record we have a +1 goal difference. 

 

You are a happy clapping, totally clueless, delusional, apologist for a complete failure of manager.  Fortunately more and more supporters are waking up to the reality that we will never achieve anything under his watch and that he has made us eye bleedingly awful to watch. 

 

One can only pray the rumours of his retirement to Spain are true. Adios.

After winning the championship at a canter and then finishing 3rd on our return; we should have progressed in the next few seasons. There has been very little progression on the field. What I find frustrating is - 

 

Alexander

 

Eckersley

Ozturk

Wilson

Paterson

 

Nicholson

Gomis

Buaben

Walker

 

Sow

Zeefuik 

 

would’ve been more likely to beat St Mirren yesterday. The progression has been completely stalled and in my opinion there is far too much thinking and coaching going on. 

 

Most fans wanted a simple 4-4-2 yesterday with width and positive forward thinking attack. Far too confusing for levein and too simple. 

 

I want change but if he wins the Scottish Cup all will be forgiven. 

Yup

 

said many times that sow and zeefuick are better than what we have have now

Have no clue what you are banging on about but I've certainly managed to rattle you and your namesakes cage by calling out your complete delusion and backing of the serial failure how sits in our managerial seat. That you are still unprepared to recognise the complete incompetency says everything about you and your acceptance of the shite the Hearts support is being served up.

We've had some crappy results and performances this season for sure, like every season, but if we finish 4th or even 5th and get to a minimum of 2 cup semi finals is that really a bad season all things considered?

 

By all things considered obviously I include the worst injury crisis any of us have ever seen. We didn't; even have two fit full backs for yesterday.

 

In terms of your "comparison", have Aberdeen, Hibs and Killie been denied the services of their two best goal scorers and two best defenders, on top of various other injuries to key players? If you take that into account we've done well to stay in touch.

 

I vote for Levein to stay, hopefully reach and win a cup final, and be in charge next season. He's given us such a good spine that we only need a few key additions, depending who stays and leaves, unlike the start of last season. He's put us in a great position to kick on, if you're someone who is willing to look at the bigger picture. If you're someone who approaches supporting Hearts on a. game by game or season by season basis then I can see how you'd be pissed off right now. But part of that is probably because your expectations were raised by the start we made to this season. And who was responsible for that?

4th or 5th in a dreadful SPL is failure yes. Regardless of injuries the last 6 games show that. Since the break after which we have had most of our players back a return of 8pts from 18 available and 7 goals scored in 6 games in which 5 were against bottom 6 sides is a truly abysmal return.

 

There is no progress whatsoever. We are just a bit better than the garbage in the bottom 6 though we still fail to beat them regularly. A run to the Scottish Semi-Final after wins against Livingston, Auchinleck and Partick would mean very little in respect to improvement and if we draw either Old Firm we will have our pants taken down as per usual given the manager shambolic record against both especially away from Tynecastle. You appear to have a very low expectation level if you think "staying in touch" for 4th or 5th place given our relative size and resources constitutes any kind of success.

The SPFL is as competitive as its ever been this season. I see that as a good thing. Our relative size in terms of what we pay right now means anything above 4th is overachieving. Add in two semi finals hopefully and that would be a perfectly acceptablebordering on good season especially... IN. THE. CIRCUMSTANCES.

This is a ridiculous attitude, but equally ridiculous is the numerous “always had faith in Levein” type posts that will no doubt surface if we beat Celtic. 

 

Come game day Ill always be filled with anticipation for any match and will get behind the team, but the brutal reality is that watching us away from home is horrible 95% of the time and even now at home is becoming unenjoyable. 

 

Also think that if we get past Partick we will have a better chance of silverware with someone else in charge, but at the same time it would be great if Craig could win something with us. Just can’t see it sadly.

Has a manger ever taken over a team at a semi final stage and won a cup? Seems an extreme solution to a non-problem. Our derby, away and cup form has improved a lot this year, now the complaints are about style. So basically Levein - or whoever eventually replaces him - has to finish 2nd or 3rd, win a cup, win all the derbies, and do it playing some sort of mythical attractive football no-one can actually describe? And do this every season? Tough ask.

I'll do it now then - I've always had faith in Craig Levein. 

He's an excellent manager and we're lucky to have him, I hope he's here long enough to reap the rewards of the foundations he's laid.

 

I know many will disagree, that's fine, it's all about opinions.

I feel things will need to get a lot worse before we see the back of Levein.

 

He may step aside after a few more woeful results like today but he'll just hide in the office again and nothing on the pitch will change.

 

My prediction is we'll see the kind of unrest from supporters like the pieman days. He is too arrogant and stubborn to call it a day and Budge is too naive in a football sense to see whats happening in front of her. Its always been my opinion we're onto a loser with Levein. He has to go.

 

You are taking the piss now. No way do you believe that....
