Playing Septic at That game, emotions were running high as they always do. IIRC at the start of the game it was utter venom and make no mistake Elvis was taking abuse from pockets around the ground.

 

I was right up the back of the wheatfield right next to the Roseburn and it was chaos at the end of that game.

 

Dont get me wrong, when he started fist thumping and carrying on I was with many others giving him dogs abuse at the time. That said, and only afterwards did I come to realise that it must just have been sheer emotion and stupidity, in the heat of the moment, that made him do what he done. 

 

THAT BUNCH OF SCUM - your totally correct about that bit, utterly despise that shower of dug s.... and I get why their is anger completely 

 

I don’t think he was a Hearts Supporter but surely you can’t deny what he done for us and in his career in his time with us? - putting this incident to one side 

 

as said, I’m not having a go at you and respect that you have and are fully entitled to have your own opinion on it 👍

No doubting the boy has ability. Hopefully he stays fully fit and gets back to his best. Looked good in flashes against Utd

Thought walker looked good last night. With more game time and naismith back we could have players who will cause damage and score goals. 

30+ goals between them this season. It's gonnae be good Jamie bursting through the middle linking up with Naisy.  But... I'm starting to doubt big Uche now. Hope I'm wrong.

Still well short of fitness, but he looked hungry and ready to roll his sleeves up. He'll do well this season if he stays off the treatment table.

 

I'm trying to pick out positives, think I might have used them all up.

I just find it peculiar that if you look over at the Sean Clare thread and some of the nonsense people post there, that they’re not all here too complaining since Walker didn’t even have half the performance Clare did tonight. (Clare wasn’t perfect, but much better than some are saying) Very peculiar.

Against Dundee Utd I thought he had a good partnership with Smith down the right side. Tonight he played on the left and I thought he was poor.

Jamie Walker was never a 90 minute player first time, he's back in Scotland for a reason, bags of ability and talent but his engine lacks a turbo

He was utter garbage tonight. Didn’t look interested and barely touched the ball first twenty minutes. A very poor game for his standards.

This. Why he was played on the left for so long I don't know.

If it was just to try something out surely by half time you could see all you needed.

Walker will be a big and successful player for us again. I'm quite sure of that

 

He was unlucky not to bag a few yesterday, he's a clever player, infact I can't remember a keeper saving one of his shots as he has good strikers instincts. He's always on the move, I think he'll link up well with Naismith and to a lesser degree McLean who is in some games brilliant and others woeful.

I thought his biggest problem was he seemed to be coming too deep to pick the ball up. Always having his back to goal then turning and trying to make it happen from there, he’s never at his best doing that. Had a couple of wayward efforts too that on another day might go for him. Jamie is always involved, winning free kicks etc he’s going to be very important for us again. 

Didn’t think anybody played well last night tbh but the win was achieved I guess.

I suppose it was to allow MacDonald and Smith to work together, which, in the first half, they did, quite well, and no goals came...

 

When MacDonald went off, Walker moved to the right.

 

I thought we saw glimmers of good passing moves last night, and less hoofball than last season; if we had scored early we would probably have scored a few. But credit to Stenhousemuir for parking their bus and nearly getting away with it.

Walker was a disgrace yesterday, both in attitude and fitness. He wasn't unlucky at all. And he missed a one on one against Dundee United in his last start, so hardly 'good strikers instincts'.

Walker last night had that type of game where if it’s not going his way, his head goes down and he gets frustrated. I’m not going to criticise him for that but he needs to be a bit tougher mentally and if it isn’t happening, if his team mates aren’t giving him a chance to get on the ball,  go looking for the ball and go grab the game by the scruff of the neck. Be influential, don’t just mope about it.

I've not hidden my feelings on Walker in the past and this is exactly the type of attitude I expected from him. Was the same before and will be the same now.  

 

Early days yet and hopefully he increases his match sharpness but I have my doubts and will not be surprised if it doesn't work out.

The fight for a start is whats needed to get the most out of walker. We'll need to see what our gaffer does in terms of man management before judging Jamie.

Walker is never *****. He is an excellent player in my opinion. Lucky to have him, no doubt he hid has been said on here. Did he run off the pitch for chips, not in my opinion did he hide. He put in decent crosses, won free kicks, had some shots at goal. Walker is often panned for not tracking back and cropping someone, which is very Scottish Football, he shouldn't have to do that as an attacking player.

His head went down? He moped about? Really? 

I thought he was in the game plenty but had a bit of an off night as far as things coming off for him goes. If you’ve played the game you’ll know that just happens sometimes for no apparent reason but imo it wasn’t coming off for anyone last night tbh. 

I also though he was coming too deep at times trying to get involved especially in the first half. I know we all see it different but he gets really harsh treatment sometimes for me.

Wasn’t so much his attitude, he never like downed tools and gave up, he just looked a bit pissed with his teammates that they weren’t finding him or weren’t making the right choices. It was especially apparent after he had ghosted into the inside left channel and I think it was Hickey that tried to play a reverse pass inside, but big Uche took the ball away and smashed it into Row Z. Walker was furious because he was in 1 on 1 with the keeper. It was little bits like that which happened a few times last night and he was frustrated.

 

All I’m saying is if that happens, just go and do it himself, be greedy and take charge because it’s obvious some of his teammates aren’t on the same wavelength. We know when he’s on form he and Naisy will be our best players.

I agree it wasn’t. I’ve seen Walker play much worse, he certainly was nowhere near our worst player. 

 

But yes, I thought his head went down a couple of times after his team mates didn’t play the ball for the run he made or teammates never made the right runs for him. As I said, I didn’t want to criticise him, most of the things that didn’t go his way weren’t his fault. Still, I think if that happens, he shouldn’t get frustrated or down, he should maybe go searching for it, make tackles, win possession, much like Naisy does, take charge a bit more and be influential because he, like Naisy, are the main two attacking players.

I'm not one for openly criticising players but I thought he was awful last night.  Thought he hung Hickey out to dry in the 1st half - nowhere to be seen whenever the ball got played out to the left hand side. 

 

Didn't look interested at all and took the safe option far too often.  I think whats most frustrating as you know he has so much more to give and games like last night are where you expect him to take it by the scruff of the neck.

Walker played well last night and will improve as long as he stays fit. Lucky to have him. Up front is the problem as the strikers dissappoint. Hope the wee general (Naismith) gets the front men up to speed.

Fair doos man but I don’t think that’s his head going down that’s a frustration and tbh I’d be frustrated if that big huddy took it off my toes and skied it myself.

He needs to spend a bit of time at Riccarton practising shooting. Aside from that he looked fine although I suspect he's more of a No 10 these days.
