Talks less shite than Chick Dung at least. Why that fud is still in a job is a mystery.

Fantastic player in his day and could’ve been one of our greatest. Sadly will be remembered for the damage he caused us second time around. It will take a very long time to forgive him for dragging us down to championship level 

The mans arrogance cost us!! As bongo says rather than step aside and let someone else take over he dragged us deeper in the shit every week.

Failed as our manager, second time round. Should have gone much more sooner than he did. Left a shambles behind in playing and coaching personnel. 
No argument with any of that.

However, you are right that he has been sticking up for Hearts all through the shenanigans of the SPFL, SFA and most of the media darlings, all through the summer. Other, so called, Hearts men were found wanting on that score, or were just too plain stupid to realise they were being played by the protagonists who were revelling in the constant putting down of our club.

I suppose he had to, since he was mainly responsible for our position, but he didn’t shirk from defending Hearts anytime I heard him.

 

pretty much where I'm at. for sure it's his mess and on that level it's the very least he can do but I actually think his personality is well suited for what he's doing right now.... certainly a much easier listen that wullie miller and chick young.

The use of English is becoming worse by the day.

 

"Arrogance" is your misguided subjective intolerance shining through.

 

"Stubbornness" is more accurate.  Thought he could turn things round.

Too bad he can't put it into practice.

 

He left behind an absolute shambles that Robbie , JJ are having to sort out. 

His chuckle when broadfoot asked robbie how hard it was sorting out the previous managers mess did annoy even a mild mannered guy like myself..


I look forward to Broadfoot asking Neil Lennon that after he is punted.

25 years experience as a manager had successes and failures, a shame how it ended at Hearts but he’s got a whole lot more knowledge and credibility than any of the usual mob of clueless twat pundits like Kris Boyd, Michael stewart etc and every single person on bbc radio.

Decent at Hearts First time around.

Hopeless at Leicester.

Decent at DU.

Hopeless at Scotland.

Disastrous at Hearts second time around.

Do you have to a complete arsehole to be a pundit these days or is it just a coincidence? Stewart, Sutton, Lennon, Craigan, Boyd, Bartley, Miller, Bonner, Thompson,Pressley, McCoist, Young, Dodds, Preston and now Levein 🤷🏾‍♂️🤔?!?!

Find his analysis really insightful and feel this is a great outlet for his sardonic style.

Found his true forte at last.

I feel he had all the skills for the job, but what he lacked was any self-awareness or adaptability. He just sailed on, continuing the same tack, oblivious that players were not getting the message, and some were even resenting him. Too single-minded and too much faith in his own rectitude...Not close enough to it all to know whether he was too strict with his coaches or too slack - certainly the self-belief of both Austin MacPhee and Ian Cathro that they were up to the job indicates that Levein engaged similar types to himself as assistants.

Craig’s a very decent and interesting pundit to listen to. Offers real insight on occasions in contrast to the bland rumblings of most former OF sofa occupants and the deliberately provocative but fairly vacuous and self serving output from the likes of Michael Stewart.

 

We’re still recovering from his error strewn final years so feelings are understandably raw but hopefully time can be a healer.

As mentioned above his Scotland record was better than many "liked" figures and the game in Prague with no recognised number 9 was visionary (and hamstrung with injuries) which didnt pay off - somebody missed a sitter that night which may have been Naisy and we could have escaped defeat . have we ever won in Prague ? . However the weegia were always on his case after his treatment of their beloved old firm and the mouthy sheep and vermin in the Tartan Army hated him .

Terrible injury jinx over last 2 seasons  certainly didnt help but I think we wouldnt have ended bottom with him still in charge even if it was by a point - he should have moved back upstairs after cup final though

Always have respect for him and enjoy his punditry .

Natural Order 

FTH

So much experience, so many near misses and glorious failures in his career. No trophies. Done Europe, England and International, you can scarcely believe the bad luck he has had not to win something in a 40 year playing and manager career. But that’s the way it goes for the majority of players and managers out there, who go out on the pitch and compete. No major medals at the end of a career, that’s 90% of players. That’s why a cup win is so special. Despite that, Levein was always such a competitor as shown by his derby record 50 odd wins out of 60 or whatever it is. He’s basically Scottish non old firm football personified, makes him the ideal neutral pundit really when you think about it, no Celtic or Rangers fan could ever really accuse him of bias. He’s lost the same amount of games against the both of them, don’t think he ever won a game away in Glasgow but he has given the both of them the occasional bloody nose at Tynecastle and Tannadice

 

Time for those jambos still holding a grudge against him to let it go from now imo, yes it was a disastrous ending but sometimes things go against you in football. A lot of things have gone against Levein in his career but there’s a lot of good memories there as well, and vast knowledge and experience. Ideal pundit.  We’ve moved on now

Levein is a smart guy undoubtedly, shrewd and eloquent, particularly compared to other pundits in Scotland. The issue of course is he can talk the talk but can't walk the walk. Anything he says will always be undermined by that very basic fact. As a manager a failure, pure and simple. Must need the money though eh.
