Worst game attended

Recommended Posts

Sir Gio

Yesterday feels like the worst since a team with infinitely less resources has humped us 0 0.

 

Other games that left me feeling outclassed by opponents who really were on a low budget. 

 

2 0 at Dundee infamous for Mo Berthe 98 League Cup semi against St Johnstone,  earlier that season I think,  and 6 1 to Motherwell close to Christmas 2002.

 

Left out the 6 0 at Falkirk since there was an agenda.

 

0 0 really didn't tell the story yesterday. Can't remember leaving Tynecastle so disappointed in a long time. 

 

Nostalgia though. Which games have been the shittiest through time aganst allegedly weaker opponents

So it's not the worst game you've attended then. You can't even follow a simple instruction.

Totally agree with all of this.  Never felt so empty after a 0-0 draw.  Felt like we had been mauled 3/4-0.

Yesterday is up there with the worst I've seen but what made it particularly bad was that it was the first league home game of the season. Even seasons when we struggled and had low expectations we at least turn up for the first home game high energy and positive.  Watching a repeat of the worst of the last 6 months just extinguished any glimmer of hope for the season already.

Probably the Airdrie semi final replay in 1991 or 92 I think. Lost on pens

wasnt at Dens in 86 

was at Falkirk 6-0 when the team downed tools which was crap obviously.

You’re right.

 

You being a stickler for accuracy means the Livingston game didn’t actually happen.

 

The jist of the thread was embarrassing results v alleged weaker opponents. I perhaps wrongly perceived the ‘attended’ accompaniment as an insignificant addition to the thread title.

 

Glad you’ve corrected me, anyone in Livingston that night need not reply.

 

I feel much better now, cheers.

Don’t know about the worst but I remember a game about 8/9 years or so ago when St Johnstone beat us 2-0 in a live TV Sunday LT match. Just a brutal performance all round and I was beginning to fear for us re debt etc.....

 

Think Sheridan got a couple of early goals???

Been to a few shockers. 

 

Furthest back I can remember is drawing with Gretna twice in 07/08, once home and away. Hamilton away in 08/09. Few of last seasons performances are up there too (Dundee at home, for example)

Hibs will always be inferior opponents, so therefore any defeat to them hurts most.

Yesterday was bad, but there have been worse against poor teams in 2019 let alone all time. 1-0 defeat at Hamilton last season with 1 shot on target all game probably the worst performance I saw last season. For home performances, the 1-2 defeat by Dundee was probably the most chaotically ugly.

 

Of all time, the one that immediately jumps to mind was the 1996 5-2 home defeat by Patrick, who were relegated that season. Anyone who thought yesterday was bad should watch the defending and finishing in this horror show.

Honestly there was a game when I was in the shed when I was about 14 where we played Raith to a 1-1 draw in the absolute pissing rain with Davie Kirkwood deeply into his role as the first Hearts player I've ever hated, and I still can't forget it. 

 

Unless it was Dundee. 😂

Season 98/99 got bad. After the Cup, and first game, when we beat Rangers, Dick Advocaat et al, 2-1, I believed we would achieve something.

Months later, Derek Lilley on loan, we were continually awful. One game, can't remember who, might have been Dundee, the stewards felt bad and let people smoke in the doorway of the main stand. 

 

Another game that sticks out was home loss to St Mirren, Sat 5/10/13, Gary Locke v Danny Lennon and Austin MacPhee. They won the toss and switched ends. And that seemed to unsettle us. Callum Paterson was playing as a lone striker, and we just punted at him, he won lots of headers, but only St Mirren players around him. Just that. There was a guy in front of me who was a youth coach, there with his family, and he was pointing out what was going wrong, and maybe how to fix it. We lost 0-2.

The worst game I never attended was the LC final against St Mirren.  About 100 years since we last won the bloody thing and we absolutely just threw it away.

 

This RC one is just a hideous embarassment.  That fiasco cost us a trophy.  Still seething.

 

In terms of games I saw, 0-7 wasn't great.  Not quite at our best.

Wasn't at the 4-0 Falkirk sc game, they were in the first division, we were 4-0 at Ht iirc. Listened to that on the radio 😭 that might have topped the lot.

Somehow we managed not to lose yesterday. Got me thinking about our worst performance against a team with a much smaller budget while avoiding defeat... how about the 1-0 win over Auchinleck Talbot in 2012.

So it's really burned into your memory then :lol:

 

I wouldn't say Saturday was the worst game I've ever attended, but then again I had to live through the yo-yo years from 1977-1983.  Thankfully I've managed to block a lot of that period out of my memory.

 

One of the worst in recent memory was the last home game in front of the old main stand against Aberdeen.  We put on a pitiful performance which was so disappointing given the significance of the occasion.

Aberdeen had better resources at the time. I'm talking about shite outplaying us, though I agree that was grim given the day

I've seen some very good displays in the past and I've also seen some poor ones. Truth is I don't think about either in terms of our present situation as they cannot impact on it. All that interests me is how we are playing now and have in the very recent past and there is no visible improvement. I honestly didn't really even realise just how few league games we have won within the year 2019 despite the fact I attended them all. We don't get any bonus points for playing well in the past, nor do we lose any because we might have played really poor in a game 2/3/4/5 years ago. It is all about the here and now and it is the here and now we have to fix. We have to stop playing football as if it is still 2004 and try using the players we have to play in a style that will bring pleasure back to those that go home and away come what may. Maybe, in a strange way, we are our own worst enemies. As has been written and said recently the club shop is pulling in cash and ST sales haven't dropped off spectacularly. And we made some cash from the Scottish Cup run last season so the way the 1st team has been performing hasn't caused the concern it should have to those at the top, despite the fact that football is the very reason the business actually operates.

Worst ones I can remember at tynecastle - losing 1-3 (?) To st Mirren around 2007, think we tried to play a back 3.

 

Losing to St Johnstone (or some equally pish team) with Jonaton Johanson scoring a winner.

 

Losing 1-0 to dundee (who got relegated I'm sure) with John sutton missing a penalty for us.

 

All much worse than yesterday!

I was at the Livi 5-0 game but left at 1-0, caught them scoring the fifth in the pub and the only thing I could do after the initial shock was laugh.

 

Yesterday feels like the worst because it's fresh in the mind, I only remember us having one shot on goal, I might be wrong but it felt like that. You just knew we wouldn't score which is a familiar feeling these days.

This was the second game that jumped to my mind. Most memorable for Tommy Harrison coming on as a sub before being taken off again later in the game. First time I'd seen that for a player who wasn't injured and 35 years later probably only seen it a handful of times in the flesh. True embarrassment for a professional. Looking at London Hearts it was his last ever game along with Nicky Walker, Jim Weir and Wayne Foster.

It was a shocker. 

At 2-0 we got a man sent off, Frail. But we saved the penalty. 

 

4 goals in the second half to a team a division below us, out the cup. 

At that time as well it was 30 years and counting without a trophy, imagine jkb after a result like that. 😱

First and probably the only game I've walked out of in a genuine white mist of rage. Bizarre game in a season that was pretty descent after a dodgy start, included a cup final but that horror show FFS.

Yeah true, but IIRC Falkirk were flying at the time. Coyle and Samuel were on top form. 

 

Think we were 3-0 down in about 15mins!

 

The Livi game probably felt more depressing as we were on such a bad run.

Losing 5-2 at Tannadice, mid 90s. 4-1 after something like 25 minutes.

 

The two Cup replays at Easter Road. The first being an historic disaster.
