New manager incoming ( merged )

Unfortunately Neilson's decided he's not bringing Logan in. He'll have his eye on some freebie from League 1 or 2 down south who's not deemed good enough for the club he's at. If not, he must be sticking with Smith at right-back with Brandon as back-up. Brandon should be one of the first out the door. He's just another hinger-on who's been here too long and never made a place in the team his own. He needs a new challenge elsewhere. Logan should've been offered a year's contract, competition for Smith until the younger Logan is closer to first team duties. Am i surprised he isn't offering Logan a deal? No.

Hadn't seen this announced yet.

 

I am disappointed, mainly because he looked absolutely solid enough in the games he played for us, but also it makes you question; what the **** was the point in bringing him in on loan for 5 games at the end of the season, when it was pretty much wrapped up mathematically, if we weren't going to give him a 12-month deal?  We don't half make some ****ing stupid decisions, but this one really is something special, especially given the reasoning for it:
 

Quote

“I spoke to Shay a couple of days ago,” manager Robbie Neilson explained to the Evening News. “He has been brilliant for us since he came in but we have to bring the average age of the squad down. We had the oldest squad in the Championship. That's not Hearts.  


“Hearts is about giving young boys an opportunity – having young, energetic players who are hungry and want to push on. You also need a couple of older ones to help them.

“Shay has been great and I'm sure he will get a team out there somewhere. I think he can still play in the Premiership no problem at all.

 

"Hearts is about giving young boys an opportunity"?  That will be the same Hearts that didn't really give any of the young boys an opportunity, in a season where we were in the Scottish ****ing Championship?  The same Hearts that, even when we had gone 3 or 4 goals up in games, didn't think "right, let's take one or two of the older lads off with half an hour to go and give the young boys more than a 5 minute run out?".  The same Hearts that instead of giving one of the young boys an opportunity to play and get some experience, brought in a 33 year old player on loan for a grand total of 432 minutes of football?  This season was the perfect season to at least get some first team experience for the younger lads, and they were lucky if they got 2 appearances off the bench all season, with a combined 20 minutes of football.

 

"I think he can still play in the Premiership no problem at all."  So you admit that Logan would be a good enough player in the same league as we're going to be competing in, but we're not interested in keeping him on, which inevitably means we're going to end up playing against him and you know what happens any time we play a team featuring a player we've decided to let go?  Magic, cheers Robbie.  Again, it begs the question: "What the **** was the thought process in the first place?"

 

This nonsense is getting too much for me.  We constantly make contradictory statements in the media, make absolutely baffling decisions, and then don't have the consistency to even stick with them, instead making even more baffling decisions in a deranged attempt to one-up ourselves.

As i said in the post you replied to....am i surprised he isn't offering Logan a deal? No. He'd said he would see what Logan could do and if he does well he could be offered a contract. Well he did do well so where's his offer? I rarely listen to anything Neilson says because most of it is all faff anyway.

I do have to laugh (not in a funny way but in an ironic way) when he says giving young boys an opportunity....aye, Moore was given it...oh no, wait, you signed Roberts and Frear instead. Then to say Logan will have no problem in the Premier....i despair! Aye, he'll likely sign for someone else and rip us a new one. We're now left with Smith which in itself is fine but if anything happened we're knackered. Young Logan is just that...too young yet and Brandon the hinger-on will probably be injured yet again. No chance of Steven O'Donnell now either seeing he is at the Euro mighty Bayern M.......err, Motherwell. Way out of our price structure.

The above is simply not true. Neilson is making himself, and unfortunately Hearts look foolish.

That's exactly the sort of shit that was giving me the fear mate, we've just signed Livvy's third choice keeper to be errr, third choice keeper at Hearts, and Robbie's best description of him is that he's good in the dressing room ffs, so was Bobby Zlamal, but he couldn't catch a cold!! 

Can we move the goalposts to the dressing room? Just a thought..... 🤔

I hoped for a change but not to be, can only hope Joe does the business.

Not going to get stuck into RS as hopefully he is like an emergency signing and I try to back anyone who plays for us.

Last chance saloon me thinks for all.

Neilson's already in it, his glass is empty, the staff have ducked behind the bar, whiskered old codgers have dived under the poker tables and the fastest gun in the West (of Edinburgh) has drawled "draw".

This thread has been done from the start , did anyone really think AB was going to wave bye bye to Robbie if he we won the league! Not a hope in hell.

I dont think anyone believed it, but we were all clinging on to the hope! 

 

Now even the hope's gone I'm certain this is a troll by the OP

I don't think anyone realistically thought she would get rid of him. I think it's more to do with her allowing Levein to continue on and on and on until the continuous flow of decline was too much to stop and the concern that she's going down the same route with Neilson. I don't think the fans trust his judgement on new recruits and going by what's been seen recently, signing a third choice keeper from Livy, looking at a League 1 Forfar defender and not signing the Premier-experienced Shay Logan suggests they're right to be concerned. Then if it does all go wrong next season she'll eventually have to get rid but then the problem is that any new manager will want to assess the squad and yet again the squad will have to be changed to suit his style. I think folk would rather have Neilson going now before he gets to recruit players rather than in...say October time. If that was going to happen then the new manager would be able to assess the squad right away, change the coaching/style of play and freshen things up with the transfer window open. 

Maybe Logan prefers playing for Cove next season, as already agreed, rather than the four hour round trip to Oriam five days a week? Maybe he wanted more than one year to make the move. 
Who knows what went on.

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.

Well he's never indicated to me what I've called him is an issue.

 

I know how this place and other forums work but let's wait and see what happens.One thing is for sure if I'm wrong I'll come back to take the abuse.Im not though, he won't be at the club next season.

 

 

Hendolad starts the thread of by saying he spoke to someone close to Robbie/Bob/Rob/Boaby......... then less than 1 hour later "Rob" has never indicated to him that calling him  Rob-Bob-Boaby is an issue. Robbie may well indeed know Hendolad and also may not mind being called Rob the Bob or Bob the Rob but to me it looks like top trolling from Hendolad. 67 pages and 3300+ posts.

 

It may still happen but i highly doubt it (i would love to be proved wrong and would love nothing more than Hendolad to be able to say "I told you so"), however it looks like Robbie will be in place for the start of next season.

I logged on just to ask that.  What happened to our ITK poster saying Bob/Rob was getting his jotters this week?

 

Looks like we're stuck with him.

Tbh even if he was going I think that decision would be made. Gordon gives him high praise that will be noted by Savage and for the first time in a few years Goalkeepers is not an issue Gordon , Stone in time and outside of that back ups

He was saying what (nearly) everyone was wanting to hear and so was onto a winner right from the start. Like yourself, I'd love it to be true but recognise that it almost certainly is not. A very successful bit of trolling, unfortunately.

Its surprisingly easy to get bites from the gullible that you see throwing toddler tantrums on nearly every thread on the top few pages.

No one knows how it ends thats down to individuals interpretation, still one of the best shows ever along with Boardwalk Empire, Gangs of London and Peaky Blinders.

A bit off topic I admit!

The Sopranos was truly brilliant. Ending didn't really matter, it was the journey and depth.

 

I see there is going to be a new season of Dexter to make amends for what was a terrible final season.

 

Anyway, any news of the new manager Hendo?

Blast from the past there. Sure someone will be along to give you the full sp. I can’t remember the story but as Walter says it ended with Dexter and a few leaving and setting up a new forum.
