The rest of the season...

Anything higher than 7th in the league would be a miracle tbh.

 

He’s got 6 months to sort this lot out and get recruitment for next year sorted.

Finishing 12th would do me, and start afresh in the summer.

Really worried about the state of the team just now.

As everybody else has said, the guy's got some job on his hands.😯

It would be a pretty spectacular achievement to make top 6 now.

 

We currently have 12 points after 17 games, top 6 usually requires around 42 points by the split at 33 games. We would most probably need to win 10 of our next 16 games to make to top 6.

Top 6 and a good cup run would do me now. Got be kind of realistic as Rome was not built in a day.

 

Oh and some nice football!

But if he can make it fun to watch Hearts again? He's my man. All I want. Just make it less than a ****ing root canal to be a Hearts supporter.

You couldn’t care about winning the League Cup???

 

Strange. Very strange.

I really don't think we'll make top 6 this year, it'd have to be some turn around. Taking that into account I want us away from a relegation fight as soon as possible and start to see improvements in the style of football we play.

 

Any more than that would be a real bonus for me.

At least top 6 has to be the target.

 

Even after the disaster of a season we have had so far.

Not since they took away the European place for it. I understand others see it differently, but for me it's just a glorified East of Scotland shield. *shrug*

Being realistic? Just get out of the relegation zone would be the priority, there's certainly no time to piss around experimenting.

Stay up, take stock and build for next season. There must be signs of us moving in the right direction though, ie. better football, more goals, more effort from the team.

Have to be aiming for 7th and a good Scottish Cup run.

 

Top 6 would obviously help financially but if we're safe in the league then the Cup becomes the priority

The season is done, fingers crossed we do enough to stay up but that's it really. Will be nice to hopefully see a team go out on the front foot.

 

I think it'll mainly be players getting a better of understanding of what Stendel wants from them and letting them get to know their roles on the pitch better.

I'd take winning the league cup every 10 years. Our record is atrocious. Silverware is silverware. No matter what. It lost its shine a little when European qualification was lost but its still a national tournament. Never understood the blase attitude to winning it.

Aim for the top 6 and have a good cup run.

 

Ideally - win our home derby(s) and give the Old Firm a game at Tynie.

 

Ideally start to play some attractive football again before the season ends and also rebuild the bonds between club, manager, fans and players which have taken some serious dunts in the last while. Get Tynecastle back to being somewhere that is tough for the opposition with fast starts from us and everyone united.

 

Next year with a full pre-season from the new manager then i'll expect / hope for good things !

Really? Have a look at our history and you will see the LC played a huge part in our story. There was no European place back in the day when the likes of Bauld, Conn, Mackay, etc, dominated the competition.

I think it’s a bit disrespectful to them to now term it a glorified E of S Shield TBH.

Probably a slow start because he’s got too much to fix quickly but I expect us to be seventh, something like that, and then hopefully get a grip properly in the summer.

Couldn't agree more

 Our LC win in 1954 kicked off our greatest winning era including 4 LCs in 8 years.

To dismiss the trophy that we haven't won in nearly 60 years since we last won it sounds like four grapes from a glorified East of Scotland league side . At least when it comes to that trophy.

Correct.

 

If Hearts aren’t in it, it’s the Mickey Mouse Cup.

 

When Hearts are in it, it’s the third competition in Scotland, and therefore well worth winning.

Top 6 and a run in the cup is success, this is what I'm hoping for. 7-10th acceptable given our start to the season, 11th or bottom disastrous.

Obviously top 6, and top 4, is a target.

 

I think CL et al,  has built a decent squad here.

 

I literally have no idea what will happen.

I wish I had your confidence in the "decent squad" bit. If possible, I hope he weeds out some of the charlatans masquerading as Hearts' players.

 

I'll more than settle for signs he has us heading in a positive direction and away from the crap we've been subjected to for far too long now. If he can manage that, hopefully, the only way is up.

I think Top 6 is fairly unlikely given our current position. 

 

Assuming he can get us a safe finish far from any relegation worries and get us at least a SC QF (assuming no horrendous draw) - I would be happy enough. 

 

Unfortunately we have waited until we are in a deep hole before appointing him so unfair to expect miracles from him. By the same token given our position he will at least have to pick up some results over the next month or 2. 

Correct. 

 

This won't be a quick fix. 

 

Might be next season when he has the players in that he wants before we see the best of him. 

 

Hopefully 😏

Top 8 and semi of the Scottish, I think could be deemed a success for him considering where we are. 
 

He must be given time though.

My worry is we don't have the players to press hard. Michael Stewart pointed this out on Sunday. Midfield are neither here nor there when it comes to a style of play. Whelan and Walker definitely ain't that type of player. I certainly don't want Bozanic in our team, despite his ability to run after the ball a lot. I can only hope our tactics have hindered us so far and our players can turn it on with a change in that department.
