VALDOS'

This will be a good warm up for the League, about the most I expect from these farcical cup games. I do think it will be close affair right enough.

On a more positive note, for our last three League Cup games at Tynecastle the form is:

 

P3 W3 GF14 GA2

 

Dundee United are a decent side but I think we will have too much for them. I’ll go:

 

Hearts 2-1 Dundee United

He apparently had an injection recently to try and aid his return to fitness. I was reading about him being home at his Mum's over the break and he was working with his old fitness coach to get himself ready for the new season. No idea what's going on with him.

Spot on 

 

The fact that excuses are already being thrown about, and we haven’t even started the season yet, tells its own story 

 

this acceptance of mediocrity stinks - we are a big club and we should expect a level of success and performance to align with our overall status 

 

I must admit the excuses are becoming more novel - the cup tie against DU seemingly is only a “glorified pre-season” game - that’s a cracker! 😂

Three weeks before our first league match in 2014/15 (where we romped the Championship) we lost 3-0 to Dundee.

 

Two weeks before our first league match in 2011/12 (where we ended up winning the Cup) we lost 2-1 to Cowdenbeath.

 

Two weeks before our first league match in 2005/06 (where we won the cup and finished 2nd) we drew 0-0 with Berwick Rangers.

 

Onw week before our first league match in 1997/98 (where we won the cup and finished 3rd)  we lost 2-1 to Grimsby.

 

Forgive me if I don’t pish my breeks at the thought of losing to Dundee Utd three weeks before the league even kicks off 👍🏻

 

 

I must admit I almost pished my breeks laughing when you came out with that “it’s only a glorified pre-season game” crap! 😂😂😂

The last two years with regards to the fitness of the players and the length of time players have been out is a bit of a joke now.

Im puzzled as to why we’re always toiling to get players fit during pre season but no other club has this problem.

Just before they got back into training he was putting videos up of him doing strength and conditioning work, with a little shooting added in. Cochrane was putting up videos of himself passing and shooting. I think for their development they could do with swapping those routines, Harry needs to bulk up and Uche needs to work his touch and finishing.

God forbid someone is positive about the team they support. Perhaps you should try it sometime or better still just give it a swerve altogether because it’s obviously causing you a lot of anger.

 

Anyone hazard a guess how far into the game tonight before rick posts "Levein oot"?

Winning these games and topping the group well is important, as a seeding in the last 16 means you can easily be back at the business end of the cup before you know it.

 

Therefore I hope whatever team we have out gets the job done.

 

This is one of the two trophies we can reasonably expect to win in a season so I always want it taken seriously.

 

Hearts 2 - 1 Dundee United  👍

Biggest game of the season.

 

It's a must win game, anything apart from a convincing victory is surely a disaster.

Neilson vs Levein 

 

This could well be both teams in their 18 yard boxes playing Long Bangers 

 

0-0 written all over it

 

If there is a goal, fully expect the the other team to shut up shop and ride it out

Happy to please 😊👍🏻

 

As far as I’m concerned we’re only half way through pre-season and our preparations for the league. The only difference being that instead of friendlies for the next three weeks we have league cup games due to this format change a couple of years ago.

 

Clubs haven’t started coming back earlier for preseason because of it. Everyone just treats it as a way of getting ready for the league but with more importance on the result than a regular friendly.

 

I expect us to win and think we will win but very aware that players will be rusty and lacking match fitness as we’re only halfway through pre-season. If the match was played in three weeks’ time we would comfortably hump them with our key players fit and firing.

No shock that my lack of optimism has carried over to the new season.

It’s funny how Neilson has gone from peddler of “shite”, “boring”, “percentage”, “cowardly” football, to the next Giardiola in a matter of months.

Of course it does. Every team is halfway through preseason so it adds an extra variable into the match that wouldn’t be there in three weeks time when both teams are up to speed.

Think we might start something like this tonight.  Midfield is the obvious problem at the moment but if we can bring on Walker, Uche and Souttar then I think that will be job done tonight.  

 

Levein will want want to get off to a win tonight as he will know that fans will be on his back already if we don’t get w positive result.
