Pedestrian play and lack of shots out the box

Recommended Posts


Things seem to slow down with Hearts when opposition teams sit deep, especially on the tighter Tynecastle pitch. So all Hearts did today after ****ing up the start was slowly build up and play down the wings, there was little movement to even try and penetrate through the middle.


Not a single shot from outside the box today either - surely conditions like this call for some long range attempts because the ball will skid and higher chance of a rebound? Hamilton congested things but there was space and opportunities.


Is player fitness an issue? The pedestrian play we've seen a lot this season might suggest that. The BBC documentary is going to be interesting to watch as we'll see training under Levein then Stendel. Might be an easy shot at the previous regime but the fitness of the players has really set us back.


Stendel struggling to form a consistent lineup not helping things either. Need some continuity in attack and starting Uche ahead of Washington should never happen again.
