Do know anything about QotS. But I expect Hearts to put on a performance running up to cup final time. 

6-0

Would like us to win well obviously as going in confident for the scottish cup final is vital, However i would take any win here and hopefully avoid any niggles and or injuries to key players, Would be tempted to keep either Naismith or Boyce, Haring and Ginelly on bench and just bring them on for last 30 mins if possible.

Mon the hearts!

A comfortable victory would be nice. 
 

A little concerned we haven’t really clicked this season and minds might wonder to final.3 points are a must and giving them a smelling would be most welcome on a number of levels.

Kind of autocorrect or my fat fingers changed spanking to smelling. 

Brings back traumatic images for a poster on here. He won't be up yet to read it. It's cool!

Thanks for that.  I know very little about Ginnelly given how little he has played.  Don't know much about Kingsley either but if he is perceived as a weak link, Celtic will exploit it if they can.

 

What matters is what Neilson does with the players at his disposal but I cant help thinking Haring will have to play a blinder.

 

Very confident though for our next two games.

Kingsley is anything but a weak link. You must be getting him confused with someone else as he’s been a very good signing.

 Lord BJ, bare arse's, smelling and spanking. Am I on the right forum here. 😄

I want us to rip these charlatans apart for what they done to Partick, they robbed them of a league place knowing full well that they should have been bottom when the leagues were fraudulently called, and then bleated like crazy about maybe not being able to field a team this season in the Championship expecting others to feel sorry for them, every bit as bad as Rat Rovers in my book!

Stephen Kingsley is not a weak link 😆

Neilson, meanwhile, has been given a timely injury boost ahead of an important period of games, with Josh Ginnelly available for the first time since October 23 after recovering from a thigh tear.

 

Fellow winger Elliott Frear is also fit again after shaking off a hamstring strain.😂

Playing for cup final places and confidence, at home, QOTS are shite.

 

Should be at least 4-0

 

Probably be at least 4-0

 

I would lower your expectation with this side. The 2014/15 team would score goals for fun but this side is a 1 or 2 nil, 2-1 sort of level. 

 

They will no doubt sit in, and with our severe lack of pace and imagination, I can see it being another slog.

 

I hope I'm wrong, but this current Hearts squad is just so boring and stale, I wouldn't be at all surprised if we lost the game.

A few on here are saying keep some players back from this game, QotS will be thinking along the lines of, we can go in hard and they will back out of challenges.

This is a game we will need a strong referee, not holding my breath on that one, we should win, but at what cost???

Irving Haring

Wighton Walker Moore

Boyce

 

Gino off the bench to get some minutes in before next week. Take guys like Boyce, Haring, Smith off early after going 3-0 up. Need professional performance.

Ahead of the final I'd like to see us play 2 up front and switch them over at half time. I know we can't use league games like friendlies - just hoping we can get a decent first half in and enable us to give folk lacking time or confidence a run out. If Boyce, Wighton, Henderson, Naismith can all get some mins - they ought to be looking to take them with gusto ahead of the final

Really hope Boyce gets a couple - needs back on the groove train 

 

Has he ever been on the groove train for us?

Kingsley has been really good and our best signing.

Like last season, a squad that can hold the majority of possession but shot-shy in front of goal.  A Chuckle Bros "to you - to me" sort of a strike force.  The difference is that we are playing Championship teams now who do not venture from their own half.  Even against the Pars, Hearts had 60% possession.

 

I expect a similar type game tomorrow 1-0.

Weren't shot shy at Greenock their keeper was man of the match. Hopefully , a corner turned.  Possession is fairly meaningless though particularly if it's mostly in your own half.

This should be a comfortable win, 3-0, but the big thing for me will be avoiding injuries before next week.

This is how I’m thinking as well,

I’ll  be cringing every time we go in for a challenge or get tackled .

I'd be OK with starting with a side similar to the one that gubbed Raith in the cup. Keep the likes of Walker, Haring, Naismith, KIngsley, Smith and Boyce on the bench unless it's not going well. Let Ginnelly prove his fitness rather than have him break down early in the final. Maybe try out our preferred cup final central defence though. Give Irving, Wighton and Lee the chance to stake their claim for the final.

Would be a good time to get a better overall team performance, where it looked like we're getting it together as a side. To beat Celtic we're going to have to play exceptionally well as a team, and tomorrow would be a good time to show that we're getting there in that respect. Any win is a good result, but a comfortable 3-0 would be just the thing.

We have chopped and changed formations and players a lot this season. I know it’s two completely different games, but with next week in mind I’d play the team he’s planning on playing against Celtic. Give them an hour of playing together, hopefully build confidence and get a bit of continuity with shape and personnel

 

3/4 nil Hearts
