Djoum is treating us like a doormat. He won’t sign the contract because he recons that playing for Cameroon he’ll get a better contract from some other club. Now if no club comes forward he’ll crawl back to Tynecastle wanting a contract. My attitude would be ok here’s a contract offer Half Your Current Wage. Now get lost. Am I being to harsh on the lad ?

I don't think you are.

We should have pulled the plug long ago.

Sir Gio

We should be looking to shed around 6 players I believe get 3 more in on the wages. Easier said than done of course, but that is a very busy changing room when you add in 4 or 5 talented youngsters.

I've put Djoum but if he doesn't re-sign then if expect a replacement for that role.

 

I've also out White but could equally be Hickey or Garuccio.

I'm not I'm taking into account that Berra is the best defender at the club as well as being the club captain. Amazing the number of posters who have a 24 year old, with no Scotland caps, who we've just signed on a free from Livingston ahead of Berra. I think Halkett is a very shrewd deal from our perspective but he's got one season of Premiership football under his belt. Berra has played in the EPL, English Championship and Scottish Premiership. No chance whatsoever that he will be dropped for Halkett.

I guess we just have different opinions which is allowed. I just think Halkett and Souttar had the better seasons and Smith doesn't really suit the wing back role but each to their own

Berra had his first major injury, I'm almost certain he will be back to his best after pre season. Agree regarding Smith, he is much better as a right back but if we want to play Halkett it will need to be a back three, I believe.

Yeh, Naismith has to be the number 10 in that formation. He's so dangerous when he get to the edge and into the box. Sticking him out wide is a waste imo.

Correct he is a No. 10

I think Souttar will be gone, and we'll either have Ryan Edwards / Harry Cochrane playing ahead of Haring, or maybe a new signing.

 

That team above also needs to accommodate Mulraney based on last 2-3 months of last season form.

It’s great having competition for places and Levein must be excited that he can put together a team that challenges for Scotland’s 3 major trophies. If Halkett has to wait to get into the centre back position so be it. It’s the same for Jambo soldier, Soapy and Capt B.

right through the squad we have competition for places which is great.

Hard to say what a line-up would be. If everyone is 100% fit then it's a selection headache for the manager and i'm sure he'll change his line-ups depending on who we are playing or if it's home or away. I am of the belief that a settled team should be used whether it's home or away. No point hammering someone at home then changing the line-up against....Motherwell at Fir Park for example. I won't post a line-up but looking at the squad, we still need a wide man over on the right. I'm yet to be convinced on Morrison at the moment. There's nothing so far that's made me think that he is better than say Billy King was at the time, and that didn't turn out well for him. Maybe a year out on loan to a Dunfermline or Dundee type might be the making of him. I'm thinking that we will also need another striker as well as Washington. Like Morrison, it wouldn't be to bad an idea to put Wighton out on loan and see where he goes from there. Game-time could make all the difference to them returning in future. If Souttar does go then Halkett, Berra and Dikamona are able replacements with Daniel Baur as back-up. I think Dikamona is actually a very good player and gets overlooked too often. Again, game-time. Midfield and Haring should be at his best, Bozanic is a decent passer and Olly Lee can create. It could also be an interesting season for Ryan Edwards. Then there's Cochrane who should be making an impact after a poor season last time out. Djoum….no-one knows what's going on there.

Playing wingback well these days requires plenty of ability on the ball but also physically you need to be a machine.  Much prefer a back 4.  I think Souttar will be off so it'll be Berra and Halkett.

I have a feeling Craig Halkett will be played alongside Haring as a forward looking mid. Both will get goals !!!

And why should Soapy be sold. We don’t need the money and he’s not long signed a new contract.

Honestly what’s the point of money in the bank when you have no debts and our team is weakened 

don’t Hearts fans deserve better.

A line up that's about as likely as any, but gives me the tingles:

 

K00jSrQ.png

 

You want 7 subs too? Ok: Doyle, Mulraney, Clevid, Burns, Bozanic, Clare, Keena.

 

You want me to list the players that leaves out? You got it: Garuccio, Hickey, Lee, Edwards, McDonald, Morrison, Irving, Maclean, Wighton

 

You want me to point out that still leaves jobbers like Brandon, Godinho, Zanatta and Currie kicking their heels with the stiffs? I can do that.

 

Whatever way you slice it lads, this squad is good enough. :cool:

Steady.  It's not up to me, I just stated what I think will happen.  I think he's done a Craig Gordon and signed a deal to make sure the club get a decent fee on the proviso if it suits both parties the club won't stand in his way.  Just my opinion.

 

Believe me I'd much rather he stayed and I really hope he does but I'm not going to fall off my perch in shock if he does go.

I guess I just hate to hear fans going on about one of our better players getting sold just when we look like we’re getting 

a decent squad together. The last thing we want is speculation about good players being sold as it can affect the player 

and the team.

Jobbers? Youth academy products or development players would be more appropriate! Also I'd have Hickey on the bench ahead of Burns. Think Hickey looks the most exciting youth prospect at the club, so far.

Just don't see any of them making it at Premiership level tbh. Didn't even mention the laddie Moore.

 

Absolutely agree Hickey will be a far better player than Burns though. Don't think he should be pushed too hard at this age, however.

Don't think being on the bench to cover White is 'pushing him too hard'. We need to give him 15 games this season, especially in the League Cup group stages and the games against bottom six teams. Him and White could be perfect as both are unlikely to play every game so they can cover for each other.

We don’t need 3 at the back and the likes of Smith for instance can play right back and still get up the right side. White or Hickey can do the same on the left.Who are these 3 centre backs going to mark ?

Perhaps they could each pick one of the 60 billion exclusively torn faced posts you've made in the last ten years and mark it, Mitch. Ok there'd still be 59,999,999,997 to be picked up, but it's a start eh. :cool:

Also thought that young Daniel Baur looked comfortable on the ball when we were playing at Murrayfield, (possibly against Aberdeen?) Think it's now time to let Zanatta go as he's been here a long while and doesn't get in squads too often. Free up a wage for someone else maybe? Think Godinho will go. Brandon looked an able deputy for Smith when he played before his injury, I think he can cut it here with a strong pre-season behind him. I'd possibly put Wighton out on loan along with Morrison. McDonald did quite well season before last but hardly got a sniff last time round. Might be his time?

Backup: Wighton, Bozanic, MacDonald, Irving, White, Keena, Dikamona, Garrucio, Morrison, McLean, Zanatta, Hamilton, Smith, Burns

 

Away?: Godhino

 

Big squad. If it wasn't for our record with injuries recently, I'd be saying the squad could definitely do with being trimmed, partly to give some youngsters more hope of a game. I assume a few will be away on loans and maybe Bozanic, Garricio and McLean the most likely senior players to leave.

( Diamond ) 4-4-2.

 

Natural Wingers. Real attacking threat on the pitch in every position. Could do with a replacement for Zlamal another strong left sided player. And possibly another striker and we will be set for next season.
