Bloody hell what utter shite , As an  ex professional I have never read so much crap you guys spout on here , don’t listen to all that pish  , levein would never do or say half the shite that you guys come out with, he wants what is best for Hearts and always has done, he is a decent guy  , coming on here making up stories and slating every player who pulls the maroon jersey on. On that note it’s time for me to go , you guys don’t deserve a decent team or players, it’s sad for me as a Jambo to say that. To the  decent  support on here thanks for the chat over the past few years. Maroonnicky63 OUT

 

Maybe you should have aimed that at someone who wasn't defending Levein nicky. But it's maybe best if you give it a break right enough, you don't seem able to disagree in peace.

Must be easy to defend against a winger in the modern game then.

 

Just show him the outside everytime knowing that he will never go there and just cut in.

 

Hard to do anything v a top winger (Hazard, Sterling) they have you were they like with their footwork

 

Still plenty good wingers in the game, just not in our slow hoofball league

I just don’t think clubs want players who drift in and out of games like wingers do. 

 

A skilful player will always find space, but I don’t see players hitting the byline and firing in crosses for a big centre forward anymore.

Yeah, Sam was a cracker. A much better option than we currently have, if he did want to come back I'd probably take him tbh I don't see a youth prospect which offers anywhere near the creativity and eye for goal he had. Although tbf Mulraney could be getting close to that if he can improve his end product.

This - he chose to walk away from us and I wasn't impressed with his last season with us.

 

He chose a very unambitious move that certainly hasn't helped his international prospects.

He's probably having a great time over there, to be fair. Easily good enough for a team like Killie, or D Utd if they come up, if he wants a move back here.

Far from certain he'll get another MLS contract when his current one ends. He needs to score a few more goals like this between now and the end of the season to get himself firstly back in the starting line up and secondly in the minds and attention of recruitment directors and head coaches.

Over in the US on holiday right now & went to the Seattle Sounders  v Atlanta match on Sunday. Absolutely fantastic experience, stadium is the absolute business & the atmosphere was top drawer - they had a march from local park to the game & have a massive singing section with guys in there on platforms with loudhailers who's job it is to whip it up & get folk giving it the large one - which they were only more than willing to do. Everyone standing, singing, massive flags etc & nobody whinging about it like the sad pricks on here. Also get a quality craft beer from numerous outlets & drink at your seat as well as unlimited food choices of course. All in, best day at football in years & beat anything you get over our way outta site - quite laughable to read folks sniffy/shite uninformed opinions on the game & the punters in particular over here. We could learn a few things from them as pisses all over the glum & negative atmos you get in Scotland.

 

Saw a bit of the Rapids game later when we were in a bar & Sam Nicholson had a decent game all round. The standard is probably about his level, I'd say anywhere between SPL/Championship but with the odd player who are streets ahead of that. Looks like a popular player who's enjoying his time here. Can't say I blame him!

My good lady & I travelled round that state in 2015 & it's fecking epic. Plus my brother's moving there after 25 years in miserable Missouri so we'll probably be spending quite a bit of time there in future. And they play in maroon so that seals the deal!

Nicholson was like most wingers.  1 or 2 good games in 10.

 

That's not a dig, just a fact.    

 

Very direct player - unplayable for those 1 or 2 games and wish him all the best.

 

Good to see Scots go abroad to play.

The matchday experience is something we lack years behind in. 

 

Even in Bayern, I had beer and food delivered by a big blonde lass without moving. 

 

 

The big flags and singing is also great, but I bet there was no hidden meaning behind them. 

They had flags at Bayern too and a section never stopped bouncing, they waved Bayern flags the whole game. 

They never waved, East, west, nazi euro or otherwise flags. 

No Irish, Palisten(sp) , Israel, uj or NI flags either. 

Just Bayern flags, pretty sure no one ever complained about a club waving it's own flags, but you know that. Be great if fans of the Scottish clubs could do that. 

 

A march to a certain football ground also happens around this time, but again not comparable. 

 

Sounds good tho, the Americans sure can put on a show. 

 

The Germans throw in free transpo3aa well, just show your ticket.

Can confirm that even in the second and fourth tier of football here the atmosphere/"match day experience" is top notch, with the daft drummer lads etc at both. Rumours that I've started ingratiating myself with Hartford City's Agents of Hale (and access to their bevvy) are unconfirmed. :laugh:

Not a seethe ... merely a comment ...

At the Angus Beith Testimonial v ICT I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout. It looked like the new stand was pretty much sold-out (no attendance figure announced). 

Come half-time, and after having had now't to eat all day, a pie was my simple wish. The pie-stall was half-shut and the queue was stretching the length of the concourse. Tantalisingly close, and 10 minutes into the 2nd half, they ran out of all hot food. Same story for the cup game v Dun U ... deja-fu**ing-vu!!! So, with that in mind, a quote from above ...

 

"Even in Bayern, I had beer and food delivered by a big blonde lass without moving."

 

Personally speaking, I would gladly pay an additional 10% on my season ticket if Hearts could sort out their matchday experience for famished supporters. A simple fix regarding having the foresight to cater for demand and make their service slicker would suffice

 

But, I'd settle for an additional 20% if they figured out a way to have food delivered a-la Beyern ... 😂😂😂

I think that as a club, we're moving towards a better match day experience but I'm not sure that Scottish football fans will really ever want the bells and whistles and carnival atmosphere, inside our outside the ground.  We're too miserable.  Look at the progress we have made as a club off the pitch in comparison to where we were under Romanov but yet still folk moan.  We just don't appreciate what we have.

 

Ive been to games abroad and even down south and I've loved how different it is to a match in Scotland and one of the main factors for me is being able to drink alcohol in the ground.  Even when I go to rugby at Murrayfield, being able to take 3-4 bottles in with you to watch the match makes such a difference.  It's the difference between being treated as an adult and being treated like a kid.

First paragraph - agree

I went to the baseball in the states a few years ago and totally agree that they put us to shame with their, pre, mid and post match entertainment and experience. 

 

The make it a big day out as opposed to purely being about the game. 

 

We could definitely take a leaf out of their book and for not much outlay cost wise.
