It seems big Fergie is unlikely to come back to Scotland for any job. Who can blame him, big dunny as I like to call him is revered by the blue half of Merseyside. 

Ferguson coming to Hearts,zero chance of that happening,having a laugh,some people on here have their heads in the clouds permanently!

McCann is a decent, cheaper, alternative but I do wonder if he has the experience and authority to really make a difference in the current culture at the club. 

Do a better job than the current manager,another bloomer by Budge not appointing him before RN.

They’re usually the ones that backed Craig, Ann and Rob. 
As I said it’s unlikely big Duncy would leave Everton or come back to Scotland for any job

Got Dundee relegated by quite a distance. Doing some good work now but that's an open debate. His temper seems to have got the better of him, maybe maturing now but no real sustained evidence to suggest he is right for us. Who is I suppose...

Not really for any of the above tbh. 

 

Neil, too connected to Savage and more of the same "jobs for the boys". 

 

McInnes, done well with Aberdeen but played shite football and shat it from Celtic when it mattered. 

 

Both Neil and McInnes would drop their kegs at the OF the minute they achieved anything. 

 

I like Neil McCann, tries to play nice football but hasn't proven himself at the level of Neil or McInnes. Plus a former Hearts legend. It's not really an episode we want to re-visit. 

 

They can all, 

 

:bolt:

 

 

A foreign coach is the way to go. Someone who has massive experience and coached in Europe & has won or challenged for Trophies.

Especially when they don’t like the new manager because he will

hopefully rip up and fix everything Levein and his protege have done. 

Can’t wait, I keep hoping we can achieve something, with the support we have we should! But no doubt the board will find new ways of pissing off the golden goose.

It’s why they have to go also, they e had their chance and look where we are and the money that’s been wasted on their watch. Would any other company put up with this level of incompetence from the vast majority of the business?

Based on what exactly? Neilson's CV was more fitting of a Hearts manager than McCann's was.

 

Recency bias is taking hold here.  McCann after a bit of a shaky start at Inverness is making his mark on the team and they're on a good run of form whilst scoring goals in the process.  Would the people suggesting he would be a good fit for the role be saying similar if Inverness weren't on this good run?

 

If he hadn't played for the club previously he wouldn't be getting considered and that should be enough to rule him out.

Spoke to someone very close to our manager last night.100% a new manager will be appointed for next season.Rob has acknowledged this but mutual respect will see him get us over the line this season.I believe the new manager has already identified changes that he wants made and promises have been given to allow this to happen.

 

I said the other day that I hope once he leaves and the new man is in charge that the awful names our manager has been called will stop and people will realise all he has ever wanted is the best for Hearts.Hes such a nice guy and very loyal.This hasn't ended how any of us wanted but it is what it is.Lets just get the league won and let him go with our thanks and respect.

Zero chance he will be removed I simply don’t believe this story 

I hope I am proved wrong but budge will not remove him not a chance.

After the Brora fiasco I wrote to Ann Budge in very reasonable terms, copied in Stuart Wallace, and wrote to The Scotsman. The Scotsman printed my letter the following Saturday, but I’ve had nothing from the Club, not even an acknowledgement. I’m pretty disgusted and even more demotivated now.

You can call it paranoia but all my previous paranoias about the institution of Scottish Football have been proven as reality, and some still are ongoing. 

 

The truth is the media, by and large, don't want Hearts to challenge the Uglies and the BBC darlings, Aberdeen and so they are quite happy for us to stumble along and will do nothing to contribute in shaking up the mediocrity that seems to have taken over our club.

 

You could add to that, according to the commentary on the Hibs cup game in Dumfries, we are now going to have to compete with the Barcelona of Scottish football when we hump Hibs in the derbies next season.

Yes and no, I like the idea of it if we could get someone with good pedigree, maybe someone who could attract players but that takes a big name, like a Gerrard, plus equally it’s a

risk factor going for someone that doesn’t know the league in our first season back. Especially with covid etc, the reality is we’re not going to be bringing in a team of rudis and fysass from across the continent to play wonderball next season. It just ain’t happening. We are going to need a new core of several really good value for money players because we’ll be spread thin, we need to sign a lot of players.

 

I reckon for the first season back we could do a lot worse than McInnes or Neil due to the fact that they’ve been live and kicking at our financial level these last couple of years, they have the up to date knowledge of Championship, League 1 and SPL pool of players, the players who are about and within reach. 

 

Its the initial rebuild from a shambolic mess through good signings that is the main box McInnes ticks, folk just dismiss the fact that Aberdeen were 9th and all at sea when he took over. He focused on signing good players who worked their socks off for him. I don’t know about Neil as much, tbh the only signing I’m aware of that he made was spending £8m on Steven Naismith and that didn’t go well. Signings are the key for us next season we need someone who is plugged in to the sphere of players within the British isles that we’re going to be in the market for.

 

Just feels like such a long long time since we had someone with that eye for a good value SPL level player who can win you games and handle the pressure of playing for a club this size.

Colin, here it is. I had to send a shorter version to The Scotsman but the message was the same.

Not a peep from the Club or FOH!

 

Dear Mrs Budge


I am writing to you as a supporter, Shareholder, FOH Member, and Season Ticket holder to express my deep concern about the malaise which is gripping our great Club.

My father and grandfather before him hailed from Gorgie, my whole family are committed Jambos, and although I have not lived in Scotland since the mid sixties, I have supported Hearts since I was a small boy around 70 years ago. During that time I and my family have been emotionally caught up in all the highs and lows of being Jambos, so I feel well qualified to express my deep concern about the present situation.

The result on Tuesday at Brora is (I hope) the nadir of the current crisis. As a number of commentators more qualified than me have said, it is something which has been coming for some time. I am sure you are aware that to retain support from the many thousands of us who have committed time and hard earned money to the Club, it needs to be turned round - now!

I have seen almost every game this season home and away on streaming services, and although we had a bright start, both the quality of the team’s performances and results have progressively deteriorated. Indeed it has been painful to to watch our games in the more recent past, although until Tuesdaysomehow we have scraped by.

It is plainly obvious that on the pitch, there is a lack of confidence, of ideas, and in some cases a lack of talent and effort. With a few notable exceptions, we seem to have a surfeit of players at the end of their careers, or who have not made it elsewhere. Also, where are the players from our much vaunted Academy whom we have been told on countless occasions in the past are to form our lifeblood going forward? If we have talented young players, we need them at Tynecastle, not wasting away in even lower Leagues. The names of Harry Stone, Cammy Logan, Connor Smith and Harry Cochrane spring immediately to mind.

The buck for all this has to stop at those responsible for the football side of the Club.

You and your team on the Board have done a magnificent job reviving our business from the dead and the infrastructure improvements have been plain to see. For that, thank you so much.

However, on the football side, by your own admission, you took too long to remove Craig Levein from the position of Head Coach. I therefore implore you not to make the same mistake again with Robbie Neilson and his team. Although we are on the face of it well on the way to gaining our rightful place in the Premier League, our position is at the moment somewhat illusory bearing in mind the decline in performance and the way that other team’s results have favoured us.

I would go so far as to suggest that if you are not prepared to act now, unless the current management team can revive our fortunes and win the Championship by at least 10 to 12 points, they can not be considered fit to get us back to a top 6 place in the Premier League, never mind top 3.

I implore you - please do not delay or procrastinate on this.

Thank you for reading my letter.

If it is McInnes, can we show a bit of common sense and only offer a 2 year deal? I respect the idea that we need to re-establish ourselves in the top flight and build a team which reflects that, but I also don't want to descend back into a team of unsellable 28 year olds because the manager is too chicken shit to use the multimillion pound academy. 

 

Tbh, I think the club should be saying a certain % of the squad must be academy grads. 

 

Think I read that Aberdeen had put Glass on a rolling 12 month deal. Sounds way too sensible for our contracts department.

He was working under a lot of pressure at Dundee,he did not get the right  backing from within,I think he needs the right club with a decent DOF behind him, l proposed McCann before RN was appointed,

For the folk talking about how McInnes bottled it against Celtic when it mattered - can I just ask how Hearts did in their last five cup games against them? If McInnes regularly gets us semis and finals then great. Also, as I recall he regularly beat Rangers until the last season or so.

I see nothing in him that suggests he can manage the basket case that is this Hearts team.

Loved him as a player.

Like him as a pundit

Not a Hearts manager for me but has, apparently been close on a couple of occasions so his appointment would not surprise me IF RN goes

It really boils my piss when any defeat = bottled it on here. Nevermind the better team with multi million pound players deserved to win.

I think you will find he will do a good job at Daley,and no I am not basing him on that,I proposed him before RN was appointed,there is a manager there,he had tough time of it at Dundee.

I wrote to Budge a few years ago, and got no reply, or even a bog standard reply from  her or anyone.  Even when I wrote to Vlad (well Fedetovas), and Pieman, I got a reply. In Pieman’s reply, it was a load of nonsense, but he did reply.

I wrote to Campbell Ogilvie a few years back and the guy set up a call with me to go over my concerns! Huge respect.

 

Wasn't a crayon munching season ticket burning email or that just concern of our direction on the pitch and off at that time, prob around 2009/10, maybe just pre JJ. Only time I've ever done anything like that.

Doesn't answer why you think he would have been a better appointment than Neilson. At Dundee he made quite a big turnover of the squad in the summer and they were bottom of the league when he was sacked after some of the players proved to nowhere near good enough.  He got backed by the board and didn't deliver.

 

Doing well at Inverness but there's nothing to suggest he would be a good manager for us.  Would you want him if he didn't have such a close connection to the club from his playing career?

We ran them closer in a final less than four months ago than McInnes did during his whole tenure.  The one final they should have won was the one that won Rodgers his first treble. Aberdeen scored early, wasted a great chance in the second half and then conceded a last minute winner.

 

That was probably the players more than the manager but their performances when it mattered on the whole were very poor.

I spoke to him at a Hearts Shareholder Association meeting once, discussing an ill friend who was a Hearts fan, to try and arrange something .  He gave me his business card so I could call.  Sadly my friend became too ill to arrange a visit to him, or from him, to Tynecastle.

I am not judging him as a ex player,he was trying to do too much at Dundee,doing several jobs at the same time,he freely admitted it himself,that was his downfall,I think he will be successful at the right club and proper backing.

Beating Celtic is lovely but I’m more concerned at our performances against the likes of Motherwell and St Johnstone. 
 

How does McInnes match up against them?

We bottled our final. Ginnelly had a huge chance in stoppage time to win it, then we had the game won on penalties. 
 

I’m not going to rage at a manager who failed to beat Celtic during an unprecedented level of success under a manager who is working wonders with Leicester City now. If I wanted a manager who could beat Rodgers at Celtic I’d rehire Levein. Bigger picture here.

Good , reasonable , well argued letter .

But you can't really expect the club to answer what is , basically , a request to sack an employee .

Hopefully your letter , and maybe others , will have been looked at

I don't disagree with you.  His record against Celtic at Hampden isn't something I'll hold against him but he should have had more to show for the "period of success" that Aberdeen went through.

 

I'm not against McInnes being appointed but I'm not all that bothered for it happening either.  He wouldn't be my first choice.

Watch their semi compare it to ourselves in the final, unless you hate Hearts its impossible to say anything other one team went out on their shields the other with a whimper. 

 

Not the main reason I would be against, I don't think he would unite the support or make us feel better about ourselves.

Sorry to hear that dude. Think Ogivlie maybe had faults, perhaps bit of an establishment man, but he was definitely a decent sort. He had a tough job at Hearts steadying an ever rockier ship under Vlad.

Good, generally rational dudes I'm good mates with somewhere between apathetic and disdainful about his tenure.

 

Don't want him. Not for 1 minute

Good , reasonable , well argued letter .

But you can't really expect the club to answer what is , basically , a request to sack an employee .

Hopefully your letter , and maybe others , will have been looked at

 

All true but the very least they should do is acknowledge receipt. That's just a common courtesy.

 

I received an email response from FoH in which they thanked me for my civil and constructive tone and comments.

I am surrounded by them 24 7 my other half loved him, my brother too but both fed up long before the end. 

 

The bit I am struggling with, complaining about grinding out results but yet this is what Aberdeen have done for years on end. And now they have got to a point where they can't do that any longer. 

 

Another factor which hasn't been mentioned. 

 

8 years is a long time. Be some baggage there, I would rather someone else got his rebound

I don't disagree with you.  His record against Celtic at Hampden isn't something I'll hold against him but he should have had more to show for the "period of success" that Aberdeen went through.

 

I'm not against McInnes being appointed but I'm not all that bothered for it happening either.  He wouldn't be my first choice.

 

 

There's certainly no evidence to suggest McCann would do any better?  Unless you can provide some of course.

 

When he does do better,you will be contacted,in the meantime try and find a replacement for RN.

So. Think you are almost answering your own question. He hasn't done any better. That would be accepting more of the same. 

 

Watch their semi compare it to ourselves in the final, unless you hate Hearts its impossible to say anything other one team went out on their shields the other with a whimper. 

 

Not the main reason I would be against, I don't think he would unite the support or make us feel better about ourselves.

Right now I’m more concerned about a manager who can get us to beat Hamilton and Ross County

Alex Neil is my choice. A proven manager at a good level.

Easy to say but it's not reality. Failure to compete with Hibs is going to send us spinning into another meltdown, failure to attack, or go side to side, meltdown. 

 

That's now a reality of expectation level
