To me no one looked bothered about our league position, maybe next week will show more. The players clearly didn't give a shit about McPhee.

 

Hardly surprising - MacPhee came across as a complete bellend. I'd imagine most were glad to see the back of him.

Also now proven that the hippy is amateurish as ****. I cringed looking at his training sessions.

I think you’ll find next week that some of them didn’t give a shit about Stendel either.

From the clubs perspective we should probably be glad it isn't too revealing. For a neutral viewer though there is a real lack of personalities and insight compared to other documentaries. I probably wouldn't watch a second episode if it was about another team.

 

Still was interested but purely because it's our club.

I thought it was alright.  We’ve had the piss ripped out us for 18 months, so I’m actually quite happy that we didn’t give anymore ammunition. 

 

This. What a relief. And the documentary team would have been crucified if they'd focused on a team playing shit one season - which some on here seem to want them to do - instead of the impact of a global pandemic. At least one team plays like shit every season. That's not a story. How last season ended is the story so hopefully we'll get some insight into how it all went down from our perspective.

Aw no worries bud. Thanks for clearing up. Way past my bedtime now 

 

No probs, I know you're a PHM and put a shit load of money into the club, you deserve all the sleep you can get after the last 6 years.

Au contraire, deeply insightful to now know what our groundstaff order from Mcdonalds.

Best quote of the night was Scott Wilson in the Gorgie Suite. 
 

To the guy who was getting the framed shirt for sponsoring the game....’thats it get right in front of the camera and give us a big smile. You can show off your new teeth that you’ve probably paid a fortune for.’

Didn't mind it.

 

Not surprised to see it has brought out some people who just can't get over their weird hatred of the wonderful woman who saved our club. 

 

I'm hoping it kicks on more now with Stendal in. It probably should have been a 12 parter.

That's the problem a 12 parter would have been needed to cover everything. 

What is it with supposed Hearts

fans ? 

Some seem to be disappointed because they didn't get to see the club tear itself apart. 🤔

You should hear my Tourette’s Dave. I only developed it following Hearts and have grown into it over the years. It’s particularly bad when we play the wee team but is known to rise a few decibels when we play the erse cheeks too.

MacPhee :facepalm:

The bit before the press conference when the PR woman is trying to coach him on what to say and he starts blabbing on about his unbeaten record as interim manager 😫😫😫.  Other than the team talk before the St Mirren game, I thought he came across badly.  It’s no surprise we got so excited about Stendel.

Thought it was decent. Nothing too derogatory towards us. Was interesting to see what happens behind the scenes.

 

Enjoyed McPhees speech before the st Mirren game. Felt like he really got us, though in general the performances were grim when he was in charge. 

 

Made me miss Tynie so much - can't wait till I'm back in our home watching our team 😢

The real cringe was getting driven to the game. Did he have a drink driving conviction or something because it was like he knew the cameras were going to be there and so he arranged to pontificate.

I think they showed what Gary Locke does at the club. He’s employed as club ambassador and, although he seemingly speaks better German than English, he looks to have a lot of enthusiasm in his role. I could well imagine him being very good with the hospitality customers. Always talks the club up, unlike 2 or 3 other previous players who are regarded as big Hearts men. Looks to be an upbeat presence around the club. Certainly better than being a “weary Willie”.

I think Hearts would be struggling to find a better person for his current role.

I grew up watching the likes of Adam, Flogel, McCann, Cameron etc.

 

Have to feel for the poor wee lad who’s favourite player was Callumn Morrison.

Macphees brave heart speech was beyond cringe. Should have been sacked on the spot for that. We were playing St. Mirren at home ffs, no fighting an invading horde of Saracen Warriors.

I was happy enough as a supporter who always wants to see more of our club but it's still not a great documentary.

True but he was trying to get us in a place to win our first home game in 7 months.  Grim, but that's where we were at, at that point. And it succeeded though my recollection of the game is that it flattered us...

He came over as humble and decent imo.  Felt for him I don't mind saying. Even admitted he failed pretty much.

Wait till episode 4 guys as it will get better. Before anyone asks, this is the stuff of fairytales when we lift the cup in December after a year of turmoil. It’s all rainbows and lollipops from here on in 🇱🇻🍭🌈🏆

Aw naw just aw naw, your prediction record is so poor would rather you said we got hammered to be honest.

I agree. Was desperate for him to be given the bullet, and he did stay on too long, but I do think he's a decent person and does love our club. He'd just come to the point where he didn't have the ability anymore to manage us and wasn't able to realise that how deficient he was...

Felt a wee bit sorry for Levein. Obviously has the club in his soul but more or less admitted he did a pretty shit job. Hard for the guy.

 

Gary Locke came across as an upbeat character. A PHM if ever there was one. 


The FOH committee ? Well let’s just be kind and say, first impressions,it could do with a bit of ooomph !
 

Overall though, they’ve managed to make something potentially interesting and insightful into a pretty bland reality show.


Dunno if anyone, Hearts fan or otherwise learnt anything or saw anything to make them watch next week, although no doubt I will anyway.

If you look back at the last derby thread at Easter road then I predicted we’d win 3-1. I even posted my bet on the thread. Then check the semi final thread. I said we’d win 2-1 with Boyce and Wighton as the scorers. It’ll still be on there my pal.
 

My predictions are all coming true. I’m sure I said somewhere that we’d stay up, qualify for Europe next season and win the cup. I’ll take the cup win right now tbf. 

 

Can’t be right all the time though 😂

I enjoyed it more than I was expecting. It's not an in depth analysis of the football but a view of the whole club. I'm happy enough to see the groundsmen at work, the women's team winning something, the shop looking busy, a wee peak at hospitality, some polite words from Mrs Budge, some shots of what happens with the media, some fans and their take on things. Loved the feeling of being back inside tynecastle on a match day the best though

Seeing the inside of the offices etc. you do have to wonder where all the money went 

They were only built to be temporary, That’s why they look basic. The plan was to move them to the second floor of the new stand.

I can see why folk think this was a missed opportunity with all that has happened. A 12 part dissection of the season analysing relationships, tactics and dressing room drama, and going into the minutiae of every single detail as the likes of which are scrutinised on here would be fun for us and indeed some other football fans.

But this is wide appeal Monday night filler to see a bit of what goes on at a football club in the same way we have programmes looking at how a cruise liner runs or a hotel - in that context I think it was pitched okay and the likelihood is that it will get more interesting to the general public as the curveball of Covid hits.

 

I wasn’t expecting much and enjoyed it because of that - just seeing around Tynie was comforting after so long.

 

I think generally we’ll come out looking okay (which seems to have riled some folk up on here).

Why anyone would want cameras around when doing your job is beyond me. Austin can at least say he wasn't as cringey as this (the original audio wasn't much less cringey, the dance though...):

Agree with you completely and it must be a real sickener that they didn't see Craig Levein dragged out to the guillotine and, bloody hell, all these ordinary people talking about their love of the club, even in the midst of that turmoil, must have really brassed off some on here.

 

I enjoyed it more than it brassed off those and such as those.

"****ing injuries" 👍 as it was said in thon documenatary.   Sums up some of the problems we had winning.   Doesn't explain the coaching or player mentality though.   Hearing "seven months without a win", did heighten my attention.   I was waiting on a decent explanation but all we got was a new manager to try fix it. 

 

Decent watch.   Looking forward to the next episodes.   Mixed emotions on it, some happy, sad.   Didn't feel angry or embarrassed.

Glad I did two interviews in the Diggers, and tried to keep calm during the first derby at ER whilst being filmed from all angles(failed miserably) , convinced others to be interviewed for it all to end up on the cutting room floor. That’s show business for you. 

I think Locke come over well and is in the perfect job nowadays, he genuinely looked bothered when saying Craig would be gutted when he was sacked, no hint of gloating. 

Macphee and his suit, slated for it but Neilson was lauded for wearing the exact same thing 😱🤷🏾‍♂️
 

I think Stendel pointing out his English was ok but he couldn’t understand a Scot might well have went against him with these so called journalists.

I was embarrassed, I laughed when they said Doyle broke his ankle 🙈

Although it's been more entertaining reading the halfwits on here raging about it tbf . 

 

 

Not sure why people keep saying it is a BBC Scotland production, you're not the first.

It is a Two Rivers Media production, they sold the program to the BBC. 

They are an independent production company with Channel 4 as a financial backer.
