I’d personally rather have Hickey at Right back and White at Left back. White, if we can get him match fit and on form, will be one of our best players.

 

Brandon has shown nothing to suggest he should be playing, he’s been a liability since coming back from injury. I can understand why CL would be afraid to give him more chances at the moment tbf.

 

I totally get the point however that he’s “seen” as the 2nd choice right back and was kept as such but then overlooked. We should have let the boy go. We can still get him out on loan though to a Championship club. 

Why would we deny him the chance to leave and then not play him, was more my point. Brandon’s head is gone, you can see that. He’s been treated poorly by the club and must now be scratching his head as to why he wasn’t allowed to leave if the cover for Smith is going to be Hickey etc.

🤷🏼‍♂️ don’t know, we’re possibly a bit paranoid about injuries and wanted to make sure we had enough cover. 

 

White for example might not be fit for Motherwell after coming off on Saturday. Hopefully Michael Smith will be back but if not, that only leaves us with Hickey and Brandon. 

 

He has no no right to assume he is 2nd choice to Smith tbf. He got a chance v Celtic again and wasn’t great. He’ll just have to get his head down, improve and hope he can take the next chance he gets.

He has no right other than being told by Levein that he was back up to Smith. I totally get your point about his performances and I can see the thinking behind White and Hickey etc. Why we didn’t just tell him he could leave is a mystery.

Of course I don’t. My point was Brandon asked to leave in the window and was told no as he was back up to Smith. Smith gets injured and the first game we play we play two left backs and leave him on the bench. 

must have missed him playing on Saturday??

again, we needed him on Saturday. That alone justifies us keeping him

You have missed my point. He was told that he was back up to Smith So couldn’t leave as he’d play if Smith got injured. The first game that Smith was injured Brandon didn’t start and instead a left back played in his place. He only came on due to the other left back that was playing went off injured. Seems like a slap in the face to the boy if you ask me and going along with some of the other things that have happened to brandon, he’s been treated poorly.

Young players are coming through that are better.

 

You know lots and to be fair you may be right he's been treated badly. 

 

But he's been poor when he's played. Hopefully leaves soon.

I took in the Hearts vs Ross County game last month. The two best players that game were Loic Damour and Aidy White. Damour had just arrived in Edinburgh the previous day and it was one of White's first matches for Hearts. Hope that's not telling us anything. Hopefully just a concidence.

I don’t argue with any of that. He asked to leave and was told no as he’d feature, that’s my point. Anyway, let’s leave it at that. He’s been poor since his injury, he has his reasons and it probably would’ve been best for both parties if he’d left. He didn’t so will have to get his head down and try prove himself.

Brandon was needed to cover injuries. We had injuries and he played. These are the facts.
