***The Official Hearts v Ross County Match Thread***

Recommended Posts

Barack

Right, first home game of the new season. First match thread of the new season. Ordinarily when I post a match thread, we've won.

 

Washington & Naismith will start, and we will win this one.

 

Hearts 3 Ross County 0.

Fancy Hearts to score 3.

 

New signing Gary Naismith at LB with Hickey out.

 

Hope Uche, Walker, Washington and Naismith all fit for this one.

 

Let's get it done!!

I'm going 5-1 and I'm deadly serious.  We have to keep scoring goals, particularly at home. Two on Sunday was pretty good at such a difficult venue.  We have to keep it going.  I don't care how well Ross County have started they season.  They are Ross County.

 

Predict blinding performances from Naismith and Washington.

 

Look forward to being ripped to shreds on a Hearts forum for being so positive about Hearts prospects.

Smith's right boot

 

Early goal and we win 4-0.

Easy peasy. 

 

Certain folk to moan about the grass after. 

 

Would like Washington to score. 

Hopefully Clare can have a good game as well.

Nobody used to playing on a discoloured pitch. 50/50 I'm afraid.

That is a really good team when I read it back, plenty options on the bench too. Hopefully Whelan signs as he will make a huge difference to the whole dimension of the team.

Hopefully we'll come out of the blocks flying and pummel them into a three goal deficit by half time.

 

The second half can then be an exhibition match where a couple of the young chaps get to show off a bit.

 

Maybe even add another goal or two to our tally.

 

County will reply at the death when Bobby spills a weak shot from the edge of the box into the path of some teuchter or other.

 

Lump on, boys.

Let’s face it irrespective of the performance last week,we were very very unlucky. We should have won that game. 

 

We must make tynecastle this season a fortress again & take advantage of the new stand. Anything but a win at home against Ross county with their budget is completely and utterly unacceptable. Positive momentum starts on Saturday👊🏼

Splendid Governor.  I'm voting for you.

 

And if Clare plays any part, I want him to do well.

This. Even if Whelan signs. Burns for white if we must. But Keena scored another 2 goals this week and deserves a run out. Probably makes him top scorer at the club so far this season.

2-2 any Hearts fans who is predicting a 4 or 5 goal win clearly has not watched us this last year and this pre season.I predict slow laborious sideways passing,Goalkeeper howler,injuries to key personnel and a raft of booing at half time and full time.😄

I think the team will be;

 

                   Zlamal

Smith    Berra    Halkett    White 

Walker   Irving    Clare   Mulraney 

             Naismith

                    Washington

 

I'm very hopeful of us putting away the chances we have been creating recently.

Mental that there is so much pressure on the manager in the first home league game. But that's the situation we're in and anything but 3 points will be carnage.

 

Can't predict just now, as no idea what the team is. If it's the team (except Hickey) that started at Aberdeen, then we'll clearly struggle.

 

Not fussed about Washington but Naismith has to start if we want a chance of getting 3 points.

Hickey will be out as he is suspended and Souttar will be out for at least 3 weeks.

 

CL is talking about playing White at LB he would be a big risk to play for the whole game considering he has only played about 45 minutes so far this season. He was on the bench on Sunday but unused. Burns will probably be in the squad unless he moves Smith over to LB and brings in Brandon.

 

I think Naismith will start and Washington will be on the bench.

I’ll go for a scrappy 2-1 win. Claire and Naismith.

 

County goal due to a defensive **** up off some sort.

Going to be a tough game - they’re on a good run of form carried on from last season.

But if we play like we did for the last while against Aberdeen, we should be able to come up with a positive result.

 

Zlamal/Doyle

Smith, Halkett, Berra, Burns/White

Walker, Clare, Irving, Naismith (if fit)

Uche and Washington (if fit)

 

Mulraney and Keena/MacLean for Naismith and Washington if neither fit to start. Would also be happy with Smith in centre midfield for Irving. and Dikamona at full back if he behaves himself! We have the option to switch to a 3 if need be.

My main hope is that Washington and Ikpeazu get themselves a goal or two. Show the fans we have an array of forwards who can hurt teams and score goals. 

 

It would do wonders for the support.

 

We’re sick of watching tight battling games 1-0 1-1 or 2-1 vs the likes of Ross County with goals from defenders at set plays. Even that type of win is not enough to start getting doubters on board. We want good team goals from open play, show we are a real football team with a great forward line, that’s what fans want to see

Feels like it will be tough.

 

I'm hoping we can get the first goal and go on to win relatively well.

 

If they get the first goal, combined with the confidence they have just now and the fact they can then play on the break ..... I'd be expecting a grind.

 

Either way we need the win.

 

Hearts 2 - 0 Ross County ( optimistically ).
