Does Boaby Neilson know he is being replaced after the season?

 

I believe Rob told him.

Mastered and schooled by Levein and Neilson? What are you basing this on?

 

During McInnes' 8 years at Aberdeen we beat them twice at Pittodrie, once (under Locke) against 10 men when we were bottom of the league and the other was the last game of the season when they had already secured 2nd place. It's now 6 years since we won up there.

Wow, that's a sobering statistic. How long has Budge been in charge?

Correlation or causation?

Have only read the opening post but as much as I hadn’t heard about any new manager, I had heard that Robbie was getting to see the season out and would be replaced in the summer and posted something to that effect yesterday I think it was.
 

If I was a betting man then I’d be putting a chunk of money on Alex Neil to become the next Heart of Midlothian manager.

Happy with this news.

Some thread this has turned into.

 

Can't see Rab Neil's son getting replaced before end of season

 

Also Walter Gerrard claiming to be close to Duncan Ferguson Senior.

Ferguson, Neil or McInnes would all be an upgrade on what we currently have.

If you lived up here you’d be way more clued up on McInnes than the outward stats and the stuff you are posting. Sir Gio , I can tell you has good connections to be far more spot on about Aberdeen and McInnes than yourself too. He gave you an argument and stats and you changed the goalposts. 

 

Hibs have reached how many semi’s and finals? How many times have you wanted their manager?

 

Aberdeen under McInnes did not develop all these amazing players. McInnes’s record with youth is abysmal!!! McInnes was all but his own boss at Aberdeen he had Milne in his pocket hence the ridiculous nigh on £1mil a year wage. 
 

McInnes’s teams are the epitome of kick and rush , the football they play is ****ing horrendous. Worse if possible than Levein and Neilson the only difference is he had a modicum of success with it whilst the league was severely weakened.

 

He underperformed a lot and at best met only some expectations with Aberdeen during that time. Aberdeen fans detest him , a lot of the players are not as fond of him as you think they might be. 
 

Aberdeens return of One League Cup from the time they had almost free reign as the second force in Scottish football is awful and does not come close to cutting it. 
 

If he comes in fair enough but itll be more falling asleep during games for us all and not much excitement at all. 

 

What nonsense, so you need 'good connections' to know about the job he did at Aberdeen?

 

I have eyes, I'm able to see for myself. Unfortunately I remember us being 3-0 down at home to them at HT in Neilson's first spell in charge. They absolutely battered us but apparently some on here think we dominated them at the time.

 

He may not play good football but that's not what we need right now, we need someone to shake things up and get us winning games and back challenging for top 3. The football was shite under Levein in his first spell but the trips to Bordeaux, Braga, Basle and Feynoord are amongst my happiest memories of being a Hearts fan and there were plenty of exciting games. Did you really care that we were direct when we beat Hibs 5-1 or Dunfermline 7-1?

No, we need someone to genuinely take us forward, not another been there and not done it.

Nae idea who it could be right enough.

Robbie sacrificed a shot at the Premiership with Dundee Utd to come back to us. I don't see Ann getting rid of him before another chance at it. She ain't got it in her.

 

I pray, but I don't see it.

ok, not sure if this has been mentioned as I can't be bothered trawling through 11 pages, however, in the opening post, the OP says he was speaking to someone very close to Robbie, Rob, Bob whoever then a few posts later. he says he's the one talking to his pal Bob/Rob.. I smell poop

I recently showed my 33 year old son a photo of himself when he was 3 with a petted lip you could hang your washing off,😂 we all had a laugh and he had a wee bit of a riddy, we all said “it’s alright son we all had moments like that when we were bairns “.   That utter roaster of a man would not show any shame at all about that utter embarrassment of an acting performance. 😂

To be fair mate, folk on here want us playing amazing possession football, but also wanted a big target man, want us to be more direct, but not too direct that we don't have 2 CM's pulling the strings, but also don't want 2 CM's pulling the strings because one of them has to be a Bruno/Brellier type to get "stuck in" - but at least 6 of these boys need to be a "character in the dressing room", but not too much like a Cummings type.

 

When we were winning games by 2 goals this season against Morton etc not alot of folk were complaining too much, but when we draw its all the "we should be hammering these teams 6 nothing" talk.

 

I think fans are just always wanting something new - and I think for us being competitive at the top with a bit of stability is all we need right now for the next 2 seasons.

Agree to an extent but what you've just described is just different fans looking for different things. That's the same with any group of supporters. The reason we aren't beating teams by two goals or more is because our managers solution to every defeat or poor result is to play more defensively.

Winning games seems a long long time ago, even by a single goal. 2 in 9. Another failure looming on Friday and he's still around.

Were we not a man down when we beat them under Locke? McHattie was sent off, I think.

If we can’t win on Friday I’m afraid we’ll have to drop into playoffs. Can’t imagine we would beat any of the other playoff teams so looks like another season in championship. Hope I’m proved wrong, but it’ll be a very close thing watching us try to avoid hibsing it.

You’ll be taking the 100/1 offered by the OP then.

 

I don’t think he’ll be here. I’m not sure we’re as far down the line on a new manager as the OP says but he can’t be allowed to continue against this strength of fan feeling

I don’t think he will.  Money dictates everything and it’s becoming increasingly obvious that his unpopularity will have a substantial financial impact if he remains. I’m only surprised that he’s managed to stay in post after Brora.

I agree but my point was that if we were grinding out 1-0 games and 2-0 games and were looking at getting back into Europe etc I don't see anyone moaning about that.

 

This is not me saying McInness would be a good appointment btw I cannot stand the guy and don't want him near Hearts. Just stateing that what he done for Aberdeen is what we need, regardless of the fact the poster said his football was awful.

Basle was Robbo but Levein’s first spell was mostly good.

Hearts fans moan about ****ing everything. 

 

I remember when I found kickback 2 in 2003 and we went on to finish 3rd back to back. Folk on here moaning about us playing boring football and grinding out results under Levien.

It is actually a reflection of the situation that many people I've spoken with (online) are not confident we will win at Tynecastle on Friday night against the bottom club in the league, Alloa. And our final three games are then against Morton (away), ICT (home) and Raith (away), three teams who for different reasons will be looking to take points from us. It is a sad situation that there is a lack of confidence that winning the Championship is still not a guaranteed certainty.

I really disagree. For me,  the last thing we need is another unimaginative, pragmatic, safe Scottish football type appointment.

 

Our club is fractured. We need someone to reunite and excite us all.

 

Yes, I get the risk, but I don't think it's a huge one. Look how far we've sunk. Back in the real batshit days of Romanov, coming 5th or 6th was a bad season.

 

Our morale as a fan base is so low that we're willing to accept dreary shite if it gets us top 6??! No way, we should be able to achieve at least that even if we're erratic as hell under some maverick!!

 

And let's not forget Ann actually brought in both Cathro and Stendel. She is not against progressive appointments.

 

I'd love us to get in someone like Stendel again,  or Big Dunc. A personality who takes no prisoners and demands passion first and foremost from his players.

 

Alex Neil probably provides a happy medium in all of this. Plays quite positive football, a modern type of coach who has developed youth, good understanding of Scottish football.

 

McInnes, it actually upsets me that we're so desperate that there are quite a few want this prick. He's Craig Levein, but actually with way less intelligence. Levein can at least point to some structural work which he can be proud of such as the youth success at Dundee United.

100% Duncan Ferguson for me. 

 

Purely for passion, there is no way a player would get away with not giving 100% every minute. He would unite the fans and get results.

I am not sure he did but he would point to his track record of league positions over a sustained period and doing decent in Europe. 
 

Whilst I would love to see our team winning with a nucleus of academy products, it’s more important to me to be winning.

And at Hearts?
 

I disagree with your first paragraph. What we need now is exactly someone who does not try to be too clever, plays to the strengths of the squad in front of him and gets results. 
 

3 years of McInnes would be ideal for us imo
