***Official Hearts v United Match Thread***

Recommended Posts

My bad if someone normally sets these threads up or its a bit early...just a bit bored at work

 

With Craig confirming some players are out of Friday through injury and suspension how would everyone line up? tough test for the first game clearly the hardest game of the group but if we win then would be very confident of getting out the group and be a positive start to the season

I didn't realise until this morning that MacLean is suspended. With Uche and Washington not anything like 100% fit either and Wighton injured, I'm not sure who'll start up front.

 

I'll go for: 

 

Bobby

 

Smith Souttar Berra Burns

 

McDonald Edwards Clare Mulraney

 

Zanatta Keena

 

Subs: Doyle, Halkett, Brandon, Cochrane, Uche, Washington and Bozanic 

 

I've gone with Edwards because he seems fitter and more energetic than others in the squad and we'll need someone to close players down quickly. 

 

Since Walker hasn't been training, I don't think he'll be risked.

Let's nip this in the bud now. 

 

Halkett will start. This week and every week fitness permitted.

 

Oh and 2-1 Hearts.

Back from the US for a few days and taking in this game. Looking forward to it as only get to a few games a season. Hopefully we’ll get it done. And it’s early days so I don’t believe it will be season defining. Work in progress 🇱🇻

I have a feeling it will be a draw with people booing us off the pitch and people wanting craigs head on a pike... but i am looking forward to the season, maybe because at the grand old age of 29 i have my first season ticket!

And quite rightly imo. Levein has known for ages what this team needs. A proper midfield. He has, once again, failed to address the issue.

 

To be going into our first competitive game of the season with so many injuries again is shambolic.

 

I'm hoping that some of the young lads, along with Clare, can step up to the plate in the middle of the park, because if Dundee Utd turn up to Tynecastle and run all over the top of us, Levein will not recover from it and it'll be the beginning of the end for him imo.

 

Might sound a bit dramatic, but I genuinely feel the support is close to breaking point.

I have the fear with this one. With a full team these early games can be dodgy. Missing half the first 11 is worrying.

Hopefully the likes of zanatta, harry, Irvine can give us something to smile about.

I'm not sure why. I don't think we'll play three central defenders every week and he'll need to earn his place like everyone else.

 

I don't see any reason why he'd jump ahead of Berra or Souttar initially.  

 

I'd go for a flat back four in all the league cup games as an extra defender probably won't be needed.

That's what happens when your current form at the 3rd biggest side in Scotland reads

 

24 points from 28 games 

 

The grief Craig gets isn't unwarranted 

 

In saying that i hope he shuts me and everyone else up by turning this around

Yep.   I get the sense Berra will be back-up this season as long as Souttar isn't sold

A side that are about to start their fourth attempt at getting out of the championship.

I agree.  I think he's probably come here on the understanding that he'll replace Souttar when sold, or Berra in the medium term.  I don't see why he'd expect to be shoehorned into the team immediately.

Can't wait, and even though it is still Levein, I believe this season will be different (I said that last season). Fickle football fan :D

 

I fancy a 4-1 Hearts win and my team below more than good enough to beat United:

 

 

 

                               Bobby

 

Smith           Halkett         Berra      Hickey

 

McDonald   Edwards       Clare     Mulraney

 

                     Zanatta        Keena

Correct,, weve not won a proper game since semi ?? And that's not good enough ? Cant remember a manager other than levein who has gotten away with such a bad run of results   without being sacked........

Last year's league cup campaign started with a whimper ( and a two points reduction ) but we still managed to hammer Cowdenbeath and ICT to qualify top. It's a shame we've got United first but we should still be expected to top the group.

We should have too much for Utd, I want to see better passing game from us this season instead of Berra hoofing it!!!

 

for me I can see it being 

 

                                bobby

smith.       Souttar        Berra.         Hickey

 

                   Harry .   /    Bozanic

 

                               Clare

 

        Connor.         Uche.        Mulraney 

 

 

Try an win game early and take off Uche and Connor if struggling...

 

wouldnt be surprised to to see Halkett in team but god hope not in a 3-5-2 formation
