Agree its a strange one.  Thought he looked okay on his debut and was certainly no worse than Wighton.  Levein had a habit last season of just randomly dropping players from the the squad entirely despite doing okay in the previous week.  If this tinkering approach continues next season then we will finish no higher than 6th again.  We need to find a settled team.

My take on it is that Levein has seen Vanacek in the flesh for the first time and been mightily unimpressed thinking ‘Oh shit, what have we done here’. After giving him a chance he’s seen that his first impression was correct and decided that he can’t have another Sammon/Martin situation. Therefore, he’s decided to do everything he can to make it clear to Vanacek that he doesn’t have a future with us. Dave, for his part, has decided that since he’s on a decent wedge, he will sit tight until something suitable comes along.

If anyone is prepared to speak up and defend him let’s hear it. 

I don't know Mitch personally, but I do know he was on the same bus as me that went down to Liverpool in 1972 to see Hearts beat Everton 1-0. I don't agree with too much of what he posts, but he is Hearts through and through.

Sounds like how we play Uche. Almost like we had someone above Cathro who favoured that style of play..........??

We shouldn’t be using him as a target man was my point, everything you’ve said is correct but not what I look for in a striker, if you no what I mean. Robbo couldn’t hold off anyone, facing the goal with the ball at his feet tho, he was deadly. Uche is too enthusiastic and spends too much time dropping short for the ball desperate to be involved that he’s often out of position when balls do manage to get whipped into the box. Or even worse, we go long to him cause we have no midfield and we use him as the out ball. We need someone from midfield going past him, as you’ve mentioned, to benefit from his play or even better, someone who can get to the byline and give Uche something to work with. 

 

For a wee guy Robbo was an absolute expert at sticking his arse out and holding defenders off while waiting for support, even better at using said arse as a pivot to turn them.

Yeah I should’ve worded it better. He was an expert at everything goal scoring related, holding the ball up isn’t the first thing you think about when you think about Robbo tho, putting the ball in the net is, which was what I was trying to say. That’s one thing him and Uche do share, a massive arse haha.

Not a great endorsement really as Hearts were nowhere near Liverpool in 1972

 

Imaginary game for imaginary supporter type post?

 

Although we did play Everton in 1973 at Goodison and pumped them 1-0

I was with Charlie Tait, Willie Wilson and bumped into Jimmy McLeish behind the goals. Busby scored at our end it was magic. Crystal Palace and Newcastle were memorable away trips in the Texaco Cup  for reasons I can't mention lol.

I only know him from JKB of the people who i disagree with on here Enzo and him at least understand I don’t usually agree and have a bit of back and forth or banter about it. Some of the more tedious people like Lieson I have blocked now as they have a purely they know better than everyone attitude. Mitch and Enzo will engage. 

 

But yeah still its only sometimes @mitch41 is ok , but then with all his superfans him finding time for us is akin to Miley Cyrus finding time to re-enact wrecking ball in my living room using me as the ball.

This took a weird turn. I don’t “love Mitch”. He’s just some punter on the internet like everyone else. His age or how long he’s supported Hearts or whatever shouldn’t be a reason to afford him special privileges.

 

Don’t particularly have a problem with the guy, but if he’s allowed to troll on the Hearts negative, then why can’t people reciprocate on the Hearts positive?

remember it well Mitch. Great trip. We went down for the game and came back 3 days later after we hitched up with some girls we had met earlier in the year in the Isle of Man. A few bevs in the pubs near the ground in those very narrow streets and also ended up in the Everton Supporters Club behind the home end. Went with the Pivot to Crystal Palace. Newcastle was something else!!!! Also won 1-0 down at Palace thanks to a late Andy Lynch goal and got robbed at Newcastle after they equalised late on with a goal that was miles offside. Eventually got beat on on pens despite Alan Anderson's very late equaliser in extra time.

Great days. I'm off to meet Micky & starkey at Haymarket for a bevy. Friday night is lads night out. Hope all is well Jimmy. Oh by the way I finally got the seat in the Wheatfield D sitting beside starkey.

Nearest Scottish modern day equivalent I can think of would be Ryan Fraser if you watch him play for Bournemouth. Fraser has more pace and isn't a striker but he's really hard to knock off the ball. Robbo was like that and had great feet to get shots away in tight situations.
