I remember that. 

 

Shuffled out into McLeod Street at full time and someone shouted something along the lines of "we should protest" and that was that. 

 

They were terrible days in Joe Jordan's time. Every game at Tynecastle was the same. We'd huff and puff for around 75/80 minutes then Robbo would take the only real chance we created and score. Usually meant a 1-0 win or 1-1 draw but Airdrie scored another 2 that day to make it 1-3.

I was only 13/14 at the time, and to be honest, it was a bit of a buzz😂, pushing the crash barrier toward the main entrance, all the bigwigs lookin down on us from up in the main stand, getting the and middle finger signs😂🇱🇻

The 4-0 v Aberdeen crossed my mind as well. 

 

We were good then, they were also decent, that day the melted us. 

 

A dispiriting afternoon. Eion(sp) Jess celebrating their 2nd or 3rd near the shed is seared into my mind. Rangers won that day to merely draw level on points with us but it felt worse than that. 

 

Iirc, we then lost at Airdrie then, in a must win/not lose game v. Rangers, lost 0-1 at Tynecastle. 

 

Those three games came after the 2-1 win at Celtic when the dream of winning the title seemed, at the very least, a possibility. 

 

Still, those days, and other's like them, have made me the man I am today. :lol:

You remember it better than me. 

 

I remember in the early to mid nineties they humped as a lot. We reversed that in the late 90's tho.

Thats how i recall it as well, was starting to get a bit out of hand, when the police managed to disperse us, suffice to say that was the most exciting part of the day😂🇱🇻

0-5 at Pittodrie in 1991 was a particular horror show amongst the routine 0-3's and 1-4's that occurred at the time. Really grew to hate going to Pittodrie in the early '90's. Gave the 2-6 a body swerve, thankfully.

Yes I know you and others got there before me. I was just surprised so few didn't leap to the obvious answer. There have been lots of worse performances but no worse game experiences.

 

I was 4 months from my 10th birthday at the time. Had the worst bus journey home as it was them on the bus giving it laldy. It just made my resolve stronger. I was a Hearts man through and through. The passing years have proved me correct.

After the 2-1 sf it turned for us.

😂 people saying that Saturdays result was one of the worst ever.

 

Football fans being football fans I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️ Is it possible to want Levein to move on without personal digs or blowing things out of proportion?!

 

I’m only 30 and have seen us play in plenty games where we were worse - that includes games we’ve won, drawn and loss. Also before anyone says Saturday was eye bleeding.

 

I wish I remembered us being as good as most fans on here seem to. Would be easy to believe we’ve always challenged for titles and cups.

There's certainly been worse results, but one of the games that sticks out in my memory in terms of sheer disgust at the application of my own team was losing 4-0 to Dundee Utd in the 06/07 season. Similar to Saturday, it was another game where the total team product was far less than the talent of the individual players we had on the pitch (at least Korobochka only got less than a season). Lucky to get into halftime at 0-0, the floodgates opened in the 2nd half and Barry Robson got a hat-trick while our players couldn't get close and were entirely bereft of ideas (pretty sure it was Jankauskas' last game for us). 

 

Certainly wasn't anywhere near the first time I'd seen Hearts play badly and deservedly get beaten, but the collective lack of imagination from the players and management as to how they could do anything differently to affect what was happening was the thing that got me. 

I can't remember Korobochka that much, but I remember Malofeyev, only managed us for a few games, who played Robbie Neilson as a winger or something. (I wasn't there, I wish I was though).

The purity of chaos at Hearts under Romanov, made me live in the moment like few things do. Nothing was certain.

Absolutely. There were many dark days to chose from back then but Forfar 0-1 really stood out.

 

A pivotal week for Hearts, though. Four days later I was one of the 2k+ at a league game v. QotS. We won 4-1 but the significant moment was John Robertson making his debut as a late sub. Can't claim I remember him coming on, tbf, but he did. 

 

Realised years later that Robbo was actually an unused sub v. Motherwell on the infamous last day in 1982. Strange that he wasn't put on as we had nothing to lose with about 20 mins left, anyway.

It's a personal thing. 

 

Saturday felt particularly bad since it was the first game. New hope,  energy, a bit of drive,  a fresh start. 

 

Instead utter dross, not a meaningful shot in the 2nd half,  whilst our own goal survived the most charmed of lives. 

 

We weren't playing Celtic. If not the worst of all time, it may as well have been

id also add the uefa games v talinn and birikara. Obviously not the worst ever but personally i always enjoy european fixtures as its a change from the humdrum of scottish football and we tend to make a good go of it, even against bigger clubs.

We were brutal in those games. Games we shouldve been winning. instead we had to watch sammon and co go through the motions.

Wasn’t a dig at you and I can understand that Saturday is still a sore subject but it’s nowhere near our worst.

 

Your other points regarding the first game and an opportunity for a sense of optimism being destroyed are quite right though.

 

I feel that is one of the reasons Levein needs to move on. There’s a section of the support who will never be happy with him there and it’s brought a toxic atmosphere sound the club as a whole. Levein has brought on a lot of that blame himself, through mainly a poor style of play and a lack of results, but there’s a weird hatred by some which I feel has little to do with football.

Another brutal afternoon. Ended our season in January that year. The '90/91 would have been a washout if it hadn't been for the derbies. They were vg, although still a bit miffed that the 3-1 at Tynecastle wasn't more emphatic. Should have been 10, could have been even more.

I wasn't a rioter, btw. I was in the shed but aged 14 and a devout big Jessie.

Totally agree with you. Summed the mood up pretty well. Hard to see the mood changing without a similar run to last season

We played up there 3 times in that 90-91 season, shipping 11 goals without scoring any. The first of those was a 3-0 LC defeat and I think Doddie only lasted one more game after that. Fans were furious and that was an uncomfortable walk to the tunnel in the corner for him and the team as we had a huge support there.

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. 

 

First one that came to mind for me too. Horrendous. Refuse to watch the video but 5-2 flattered us and Ian Cameron(?) ran the show. Saw Eskillson score though, not many can say that.

3 down after 15 minutes, abysmal display and a few Hearts fans went to the pub after the 3rd.

I think that game signalled the end of our regular trips to Aberdeen. The pumping that broke the camels back. Probably only went up there about 2/3 times since.

 

Some great days though. Two 0-1 wins in 1986, 1-3 a while later and two late goals in JJ's first season to win 1-2.

 

Not a win but the 2-2 up there in 1998 was fun, too. Well, it became fun when we heard Sjell (sp) Ollafson was doing the bizzo at ER to relegate Hibs.

My Brother and I decided to take my Hibs supporting father to this game with his Jambo loving grandkids , it was a banker home win .

up until dementia led to his death he loved to rip into me about it , he even kept the programme handy for years.

bad result but happy memories cheers
