Does Neilson have to take some of the blame on that one??

 

70 minutes on Wed night (where he scores!) and then gets the ferry back over Thursday lunchtime.

 

We have a boy brimming with confidence in Wighton, have to trust him.

Spends most of the time away from the box and when he is in the right place is ****ing garbage

Not great tonight but Haliday, Lee, Freak, Robert all worse.


Agreed but how many sitters has he missed?!

 

This is the guy who was going to score 20 goals plus this season.

He's not interested get him to **** and take the rest with you son 

Embarrassing from the club players we've brought in look terrible no energy no speed just terrible...play naismith up front or get him away as well he's not good enough to play midfield and he's not got the legs really poor from neilson tonight as well is shape tactics and subs shocking

He's rapidly running out of time. His finishing has completely fallen apart. 

He's not doing his job even in a lower league.

Was poor tonight but think questioning his effort is unfair, was all over the pitch tonight trying to drag the team up the field whilst others strolled

I actually agree and I really don't rate Wighton. It just makes sense though.

When good strikers come to Hearts they suddenly because dross. Been happening for years, can't be a coincidence.

Only the seriously misguided thought that. Terrible header but he played 95% of the game with his back to the goals because we had absolutely no width or pace to stretch them.

He’s had at least 4 absolute sitters in the games I’ve watched plus a load of half chances that he’s not taken. 

I thought this guy could score goals especially in a “diddy” league like this? Is that not what we are paying him big money for??

 

Can’t believe I am saying that Wighton looks twice the player Boyce is.

He is here to score goals, he is on a massive wage, he is missing sitters pretty much every game,  he is failing badly.

It’s not just tonight though. He’s missed a load of sitters in games now. 
 

He’s running out of time in my option.

Not a Hearts player , never will be . Look at the clubs he has played with , Ross County and Burton but some folk think he will be a legend . Utter

shite and should be dropped .

We are at least one, probably two strikers short and Boyce has no real competition for his place.

Needs to get a serious grip of himself. Hasn’t performed anywhere near well enough since joining us.

 

The likes of Frear, Roberts, Wighton are average but I expect much more from guys like Boyce and Naismith.

I'm prepared to give him a break given it's been a tough October/November period involving 6 Internationals in that time (2 play-offs), the last one 48 hours ago. 

 

No more Internationals now until the end of March so he now has a free run to clear his head and concentrate solely on Hearts.

Interesting if the player who didn’t get involved with international duty trained for two weeks,I understand why Boyce & Smith didn’t play well,but no excuses for anyone else,Naismith should try and concentrate on being a player,captain and influence to his team,Instead of media specialist.

Not convinced Boyce should have started after international duty and it showed. He seemed to take wrong option every time tonight. Problem is we have no striker replacement to play with Wighton

How many goals has Boyce scored since he came to Hearts, not counting penalty's. He just doesn't look like scoring, he missed sitters in every match. We were out fought tonight in every department.

A lot of games and a lot of travel. 
 

But he is doing my head in. 
 

Slack, sloppy, have the ball away too much and quite frankly his finishing this season has been awful. If he was Wighton we’d be slaughtering him. Although I guess that’s what we’re doing on this thread.
 

For the salary he needs to do much better. Same for Naismith.

He's played 3 games in 5 days ffs and we've got the predictable thread on here slating him.

He's a quality player.

Never change kickback 🙄

I’m sorry that may be the case and may well turn out to be the case for us, but he has not been quality for us since he signed. Indeed for wages spent it’s not where near good enough.

really think his first game when he scored against ranger s was a bit of a fluke and since then I really think he has been pretty poor for the money that he is meant to be on hope he will start to get a few goals in open play soon :rifle:

Apart from his debut he has been poor! 

his first goal for Hearts he fluffed his shot with his left leg, came of a rangers defender and went in the net.  lucky.

Couldn’t miss with Ross county, but with us he just can’t hit the target. The amount of really good chances he has missed so far this season is incredible. Is it the Hearts effect? Good forwards seem to lose their ability when they come to us

Said a couple of weeks ago he’s good outside the box but looks short in it.

 

Snatches at shots or does the opposite and takes too long.  He’s got this habit of always wanting to do a dummy shot or turn first instead of instinctively taking a shot.  
 

I do agree with others though that he’s being asked to do too much outside the area. But is this symptomatic of the game these days or simply how we lack in other areas?

 

Midfielders who don’t run behind opponents, fullbacks who don’t get up the park, not much combination play between the midfield and wide players to let strikers get in the box more often....it’s pish.

And RN keeps playing CW as a winger, clueless.

I laughed when Sutton said that. 
 

What absolute dribble that man speaks.
