We have another Cathro

Our Midfield are far too lightweight. It is the midfields job to win the ball high up the park. Sibbick looked very good against rangers, but Henderson and Moore are the real weak links.

 

Brian Clough once commented "If there is something wrong with the team - all I need to do is look at the midfield"

 

This is the engine room of the team, and currently our midfield is probably the worst in the league. Langer and Avdijaj better come good or else we are in bug trouble....

1 league win in 9, or whatever, and bottom of the league. It’s not surprising people are asking questions. 
 

DS reputation has been massively overblown in my opinion due to the fact he’s not CL, fan friendly and viewed as ‘fashionable’ by sections of the support. His track record doesn’t warrant the hype imo. 
 

I’m firmly in the jury’s our camp. He has inherited a shambles of a situation buts it’s never ‘felt’ right and I suspect the challenge might be too big for him. I wouldn’t be surprised if we started next season with a new manager. 
 

IF we were to be relegated he would have to share a fair chunk of the responsibility being in charge for circa 6months of the season. We can’t continue to use CL as a free pass, DS is the man in charge and is responsible for getting results. 
 

Our issues are much deeper than a goalkeeper.

 

The one things I will say I enjoy the games under DS more than CL, but the results are pretty much the same😞

Has he improved us? In my opinion, no. You could drive a bus through the middle of us and our full backs are so far from our centre half’s it’s a cringe every time. We need blood and snotters not experimental pish with a high press. 
 

Stop losing goals and build from there. It’s like watching Ossie Ardiles’ Spurs with Sunday league players.

Ann Budge has turned the environment at our club to a losing one. It is all her doing.

Defence is even more shambolic than under Levein, and still lots of players who have absolutely no business starting regularly for Hearts. Boyce was a great signing. Time will tell with the rest.

 

Jury still out for me.

we'll probably have a much clearer idea if we're Championship bound after the next 3 games. away to Celtic home to Hamilton away to St Mirren. after that only 10 games to go

It’s all very worrying ... I hope Stendel is pragmatic enough to modify his preferred playing style to deliver results.

    And if the players he has brought in are not as good as those that have left or those that remain he accepts that and plays the ones in the squad that are most able to deliver results and get us out of this mess we are in.

     It’s going to be a bumpy ride through to May, hopefully we arrive in a good place!

She’s certainly responsible for recruiting Stendel who was almost universally welcomed. Still very early to judge Stendel but he needs to sort that defence before Hamilton a week on Saturday.

I wouldn't blame stendel,, it's the shite levein brought in 

That's put us here, we all know that , but our season starts next week v tic and more importantly hamilton , we dont beat Hamilton " wel be 2 thirds of the way down ,,  I admit theres been a lot of hype surrounding stendel "  many fans seeing him as a messiah ?  But hes a human being,  and needs his players to make a few breaks for him on the pitch....otherwise it wouldn't matter who was our manager......

With you there 

 

it is a worry. Maybe Stendel needs to tweak a bit until the defence get the hang of what he wants them to do 

one things for sure, we have to tighten up big time at the back 

 

I still put our current predicament at Leveins 🚪 he has put us in a right situation with all his tinkering over the last few years

Daniel has now won one of his last 19 league games as a manager.  His record is LDLLDLLLDLLLLLDDWDL.  Slightly concerning.  I think he has had enough time now to make an impact.  We have seen marginal improvement during a point when we need huge improvement.  Huge couple of months ahead. Huge.

Agree with this ,plus Kimmarnock while not world beaters are one of the better organised sides in the league and very good at holding onto a lead ,10 behind the ball and break .

We need to improve definitely but we were not rubbish tonight .

We are not near good enough at this system to guarantee to beat anybody yet. 

.

 


How can a team that won once since when? October before the weekend be good at holding onto a lead?  Stop making shite excuses.  We nearly fluked a draw the same as Saturday.  
 

Killie had a game plan to beat us and they did, convincingly, Tommy Wright had a plan for St Johnstone to beat us second half Saturday and he had us by the baws.  
 

Aberdeen and the huns have been utter pap, Aberdeen lost 3-0 away to the vermin and lost again tonight to that same shite st Johnstone side with that shite manager on a tiny proportion of budget we have who are now well ahead of us.  Imagine “that clown” Tommy Wright had the money to buy a Boyce? 
 

There’s three teams in this league that can go down, us Hamilton St Mirren.  Hibs will finish above us for what? Three seasons on the trot, before that they emptied us and won the cup.  
 

It’s ****ing disgusting.  Another shite season like the three before.  “Aye well we are the big team” where exactly?  It’s all talk now.  We are soft as shit.  If we go down with the budget we have or even in a relegation playoff you will still have people thanking Queen Ann.  It’s mortifying,

Perhaps he’ll ask for help from another Hearts employee on possible suggestions to sorting out the defence?

He (Stendel) is relatively inexperienced managerially at this level so he should listen to all the advice he can get. Then he decides to discard that advice or not.

The abuse that poster takes daily is shocking.  It wouldn’t be allowed anywhere else but it’s a free go at the poster all the time.  Regardless of his views it’s bullying to the extreme. 

He's just had a thread removed, that said he'd rather have a statue of Neil Lennon outside Tynecastle, than Budge.

 

He doesn't half set himself up sometimes.

He has to change the style for parkhead. Just park the bus and lose by a couple. 
play the high press there and it could well destroy any confidence we have left. Goal difference may be the difference come May

This place is full folk that backed Craig Levein to the very end and now, two months in, is turning on a new manager with new ideas. Somehow, now, folk are worried we might get relegated? That's been a real possibility most of the season.

 

Had a January transfer window to turn everything around, as long as he could shift players out the door though. Why didn't he sign a keeper? Well we currently have three first team keepers that no one else wants. Not easy to free up wages when the last clown was handing out four year deals to everyone.

 

Nine league games in, four against Rangers, Celtic Aberdeen and Hibs and four with Leveins dross and he's the next Cathro.

 

Folk that think we aren't playing better football are clueless. The same folk that want our defender to "punt it up the park" at every opportunity.

 

Stendel has a massive job on his hands and has done since he walked in through no fault of his own. He's patched up a seriously shit midfield with what's available and got a striker in who can actually score goals. Sadly, this team needs a complete refresh from top to bottom because of years of incompetence.

Still believe and hope that he will be a success but needs to cut his losses and bin that goalie, stop playing Moore and Henderson every week and fix our defensive issues with the high line and zonal marking at corners. 
 

Conceding goals for fun now. Always chasing the game.

That’s for sure. I’m still not convinced that the players are repositioning themselves properly after losing the ball 

We showed (in spells) at the rangers game that if you get the positioning right we can counter and score 

Have the players currently got the fitness to do it for 90mins of play.? Unsure in all honesty 

we have to tighten up or tweak something until the players learn how to do it properly with no tweaks

He only posts when we get beat and it's usually utter nonsense. It's only ever abuse aimed at our own club/management/players and it's so over dramatic it's like a wee lassie posting about Justin Bieber or something. I continue to be astonished he's actually older than me as he posts like he's about 12. He only posts here in order to wind other folk up when we get beat and unfortunately, folk (like myself admittedly) keep biting.
