Yeah, in reality it’s not a transfer window but a registration window. You can do transfer business whenever you like, but there are only certain periods when you can register a new player with your association.

You can register a free agent signing at any point if they’ve not been released after whatever window their club is tied to. Tony Watt was released in February 2018 but couldn’t sign for anyone until summer of that year.

It's more valid than anything else I've seen on here. 

 

Do you have other data,if so, please feel free to present it. 

 

Also having watched all the other teams, I'd argue we play no less hoofball than most. 

In fact, at Tynecastle hibs, Aberdeen and Killie on both their visits to tynecastle played far more hoofball than us, unfortunately it worked for killie and Hibs. 

 

So in my experience of the match day and the only stats I've seen, we played far less hoofball than most. 

Be pleased to see other data saying different?

 

 

 

I'm not saying it's necessarily incorrect what it said, just that it didn't prove anything either way as there was insufficient information provided alongside it.

 

For the league we play in I don't think we are too bad for long ball. In a wider sense, we are still pretty bad for it and the league as a whole could do with improving in that regard.

All fair points and I agree in general, but without any information to contradict it, the point stands in reply to that particular poster.

I was hoping for something more definitive but given the way the weeks gone I should have known better.

The myth thread is elsewhere. 

 

Stats proved we were the 3rd least hoofball team in the entire league. 

 

Proper staticians, not just slavers. 

Research, data and stuff. 

 

 

 

 

Stats proved we played 3rd least successful passes over 35 yards actually.

I would imagine that if Damour was going to sign, it would be tomorrow. 

English window is shut, so the chance of a big money move has gone? (not sure when the foreign windows shut)

I think we can forget about Whelan now (although he's a free agent, it seems to have gone on for too long) and come friday night, we can forget about Damour as well. 

 

Just my opinion.

I may not agree entirely with the above post, but I can respect it.  Some posts, however, seem to be mocking the opinion that Hearts may not be a hoof-ball team. Why on earth would any Hearts fan want to mock them? I don't get it.

I know.  Brilliant news to waken up to.  Have to think that the Whelan deal is off.  Dragged on too long.  Plenty of time left in the window though.

Re Whelan, I’m hoping he was waiting to see what his options were down south and once the window is closed he’ll sign with us.

 

i know he’s a free agent but it may be that interested clubs were trying to move people on to free up space etc and it never happened.

 

Have no problem with him keeping his options open and not making Hearts his number 1 priority. Especially when it’s potentially his last contract.

Doesn't he have a year left on his contract with Cardiff? That would mean Cardiff would have payed up his contract (or most of it).

http://www.deadlinenews.co.uk/2019/08/08/hearts-set-to-complete-the-signing-of-loic-damour-on-friday-as-discussions-over-cardiff-release-continue-transfer-news-deadline-day-neil-warnock/

 

HEARTS expect to complete the signing of Cardiff City midfielder Loic Damour on a permanent deal in time for their Premiership clash against Ross County.

The 28-year-old was initially offered to the Jambos on a season-long loan after falling out of favour with the Bluebirds, with reports suggesting those terms were all but agreed.

However, the clubs were locked in talks throughout Thursday as the Jambos pushed to secure the former France under-20 international outright.

That would require Cardiff to either annul the final year of Damour’s contract or accept a modest fee for his services, with Hearts not in a position to pay a significant transfer sum

Nevertheless, sources close to the discussions were confident that an agreement will be struck by Friday.

Damour was due to arrive in Edinburgh on Thursday evening for advanced contract talks and, barring any unforeseen hitches, will become their fifth summer signing on Friday. He could make a whirlwind debut against the Highlanders at Tynecastle.

There was interest in Damour from his homeland, where he has previously turned out for Strasbourg, Boulogne and Frejus Saint-Raphael, but the player wanted to remain in British football.

Failing to disprove something someone says doesn't mean they've proven what they said to be true; but it doesn't really matter as I don't really disagree with his point either...just the assertion there was stats to prove it when really there is nothing of the sort (either way)

I'd imagine the first person to mock anyone about that (certainly on this thread) will have been from the 'other side' demeaning the intellect of those who don't accept the holy grail article 

 

I'd go back and quote the post but I'm sure you can find it for yourself.

 

This in turn provokes people to mock and demean in return. It's quite sad really, we should be able to disagree and debate in a more civilized fashion.

I'm not sure, Taffin, but at least they're not mocking the team they support, unlike so many on most threads seem to delight in. (I realize not all of them are Hearts fans)

Loic seems to play the game  with a great attitude and work rate and our fans will take to him. It looks like going through and would be exciting signing, we have been missing midfield drive, energy and attacking intend. Loic can provide that, hopefully rubbing off on those around him and our youngsters.

If we are to play are more open game, esp at home, you need a centre midfield with the ability, positional awareness and capabilities to get back in defensively very quickly.  

 

Damour sounds like he’d bring this, even Whelan if he came to Hearts. You can’t have a centre midfield who read things too late when we lose the ball and get countered. To have someone who can cover ground but read the game could make a huge difference.

Robbie Neilson done quite well pissing with someone else's cock then although I don't know how that's possible. Perhaps you can tell me? 

 

Saying we don't play a horrible brand of football without Naismith in the team is crazy as I believe you have probably witnessed most of the shit we've had to sit through recently.

 

Levein gave up half way through last season and started blaming the refs for everything to deflect how utterly shite he had us playing. He basically chucked in the towel until the cup final.

 

Hopefully with Damour signing and Walker back we will actually attempt to play football if Naismith gets injured. At least there will be no excuses if we don't get Europe this season.

Before yesterday I'd no clue on Damour. The last few hours I've caught up through various news sites read good reports on his abilities . Seem he has been unlucky missing out on EPL football n is highly rated for a lad who hasn't featured in top team football since a stand out 2 seasons ago. He's got it all needs Us as We need him. Yes Yes Yes.

You dont always get what you want you get what you need.

No, I’m saying that just like pretty much every other team in our league, we do from time to time. Just nowhere near as often as the fans of other clubs like to make out, and many of our more dim-witted fans have started to parrot.
