😂 While the guy next to him is saying. "Yeah, they nicked Robbie Neilson off D Utd and Craig Gordon off Celtic. Then they only went and won their court case..."

His save against Motherwell at home, is still to this day the best save I’ve ever seen in the flesh.

 

Incredible.

 

Welcome home CG.

I've still no idea how he got to that, it didn't look possible to save.

Great signing. Happy with this. It’s our main problem position and to get the calibre of a keeper like CG at this stage is a coup. A steady pair of hands 

 

Welcome back Craig - it’s been too long

I'm happy with him signing for us, although I hated his love in with the tinks 

It was hardly a love in! Everyone knows it was football reasons only. He admitted he grew up a Hearts boy. 

Thats hardly having the credentials to create a love in with the Mhanks 

he won some trophy’s, played at the highest level in Europe etc 

I wasn’t particularly enamoured when he moved to Septic, but You kinda get the reasons why 

 

But love in ... No. don’t think that’s what it was at all.

 

He will finish his career with us and I bet you that will be just as special to him as to whatever “wins” he had with the mhanks

The guy won a shit ton of medals and trophies at Celtic, playing against some of the biggest and best clubs in Europe. 

 

Of course he'll have enjoyed himself and been happy there. You'd have to be a right torn faced ***** not to. And obviously he'll have a bust a gut to get those and celebrated every victory and point that got them. Doesn't mean he was never a PHM. What it does mean is he's a professional as **** PHM. 

 

Welcome back Craigy boy.

Love Craig Gordon.

The Rob Jones save was my favourite. In the split second after he'd made connection and the ball flew toward the corner of the net I'd resigned myself to a 3-2 defeat. 

 

Craig suddenly appeared, Superman like, and saved the world from the horror of a rare Hibs derby win. 

 

I think there was also a stunning bit of goalkeeping in his early Sunderland days that was quite special.

From our old Hearts transfer target, Zat (Zap) Knight. Got save of the season, iirc.

Ha ha. I had a wee look around and realised it was "Zap" playing for Bolton. 

 

It was voted the best EPL save ever, apparently.

Blaming early morning for posting Hearts twice. The best ever save rings a bell. Sure there's something out there that confirms it. I'll not be looking though, as I'm still cross-eyed at the moment.

I didn't even notice the double Hearts. 

 

😉

 

The EPL did a 20th anniversary award thing and Craig's save won. Kevin Keegan's "love it" got best quote.

Aye. It may sting because it’s Celtic but the late, great Dave Mackay won major honours and had an affinity with Spurs, it never stopped him being a big Hearts man. 
 

John Greig at Rangers.  One of Hibs greatest , Gordon Smith, never hid he fact he was a big Hearts supporter.  Players are often accused of not being real fans because they played football every other Saturday trying to become a professional, i’ve often thought that was alot of crap.  
 

Every player dreamt of playing for the team they supported.

Referring to Celtic in the past tense and saying 10 wasn’t for him. The sort of bitterness I like to see, even if it isn’t actually there. 

Yeah that was pretty soothing. 
For me anyway :lol: 

I’ll love him again I suppose🤷🏽‍♂️☺️

Find it hilarious that the best Premier League save ever was in a game between a League 1 team and a soon to be League 2 team. How times have changed.

Great news! I'm delighted he's back! He looks delighted too! This could be a crucial signing for us moving forward and trying to get back amongst the top 4! I'm really happy that we are starting to build a strong team from the back again! The way it should be done, Hopefully the first of a few new quality additions to our team.

Is DeFoe still at the Huns? Hopefully Craig can return the favour.

Perfectly put. 

 

I have no truck with those who have a go at Craig for, in effect, being the consummate professional at every club he has played for. 

 

He celebrated a treble he had massively contributed to and quite right. When we beat Celtic and rattled goals past him he was raging and quite right. 

 

Those having a dig ? Well it says quite a lot about them in my eyes.

The camera was on him sitting on the bench after Celtic scored late at the game at Tyncastle last season, he did not move a muscle when Celtic scored

I see Buffon has signed on at Juventus for another year aged 42. Surely Italy's top club could have got someone younger.

Pretty sure they could have signed any keeper on the planet if they wanted to.

True enough, bud. Both clubs in a hell of a state. One season, even a pld 38 won 0 drawn 0 lost 38 points 0, in the EPL would set Hearts up for a generation. 

 

At least.

Well ahead the lost late goals the that save at the death to prevent a draw.

Imagine the cup proceeds, hearts obviously pump the vermin in the semi and then face Celtic in the final. It goes to pens and Gordon makes the save that wins the cup. Ooft. 😂

Kept us going towards the club record equaling 8 league wins in a row from the start of a season.

Ironically enough, we had a chairman from Russia the first time too. Elias Furst?

If only Romanov had kept his vanity at home, who knows what Hearts could have achieved that season.

Magic!  Hope we sign a few more out of our budget range players and staff soon.  They need something to keep their spirits up.
