Some planks on here cannot see past Halliday's Rangers link and his Podcasts. 

 

I prefer to judge him on what he does for us. 

 

On Saturday he never hid, got stuck in, worked well with Beni, gave 100%, and banjoed McGregor.

 

He isn't the most technically gifted but he does a job and that's fine by me.

You have to wonder why some folk actually pretend to support a club, a massively positive result and have to counter with a negative input, Halliday type player is needed in every team, Another notch on the Boo boys bedpost, my opinion of course.

I guess I’m in the minority by thinking that that was never a red card ? Yellow all day long but I just don’t see it as a red.

Did you nor see the difference when haring appeared 

Your point would be a lot more valid if Haring replaced Halliday, he didn’t, he replaced GMS because we were being overrun having only two in midfield.  So for 70 minutes Halliday alongside a new starter had played a huge part in keeping Celtic at bay despite being outnumbered for the whole game.

 

He played well, he does the dirty, ugly stuff that every team needs, he runs his socks off and he provides the manager with tactical versatility.  He’s a good player who we need.

Hard to argue with this to be honest. Absolutely does the under appreciated dirty work that you need against Celtic and Rangers. If we are being honest those two have far better international players all over the park regardless of form. Players that can hurt you so initially imo you have to make it a scrap in midfield to stop them settling. I thought our midfield did that. Haring up till now has been a bit hot and cold so unless he is fully back to his best I can see why Robbie sticks Halliday in there. On that note with Beni coming in and haring playing well it looks like we have some good competition for that role and hopefully they will all raise there game.

Good yard off the pace on Saturday imo. Seemed reluctant to stick with his man. Maybe unsure who he was meant to be marking.

Beni and Haring both showed him what he was meant to be doing, breaking up play and passing it on. Did he even do it once ?

Don't think he was man marking anyone, they were covering an area and mostly outnumbered so both him and Baningimen done a great job in there.

He broke up play twice, when he went down injured 😏.

 

Surely Haring and Beni for the St.Mirren game.

Agreed and he can thank Craig Gordon for the worldie near the end of the game.

It was never a red card. Pretty shocked so many non-celtic fans seem to think it was. It was a bad tackle worthy of a booking but that's it.

Yes. in the second half some people moved down to Section S lower (where we were) in order, it appears, to be near the Celtic subs who they proceeded to 'treat' to a load of irrelevant nonsense.  A couple of them were removed by the stewards.

 

A couple more who remained were yelling at Halliday near the end  to move about more. He had a go back. Nothing serious but it was all a bit Michael Stewart-esque.

 

 

 

I'm not Halliday's biggest fan, but this is ridiculous. By all means shout at him when he's on the pitch, but leave it there. Shouting at him when he's sitting in the sand is beyond the pale, especially if you're aged over 14.

Agree seems like Robbie has a strange need to always start him ahead of better players. Boys a liability

Hallway was never in the stand. He played the whole game.

They said in Saturday's off the ball that it's a disgrace that a player of Craig Gordon's quality had to spend a season outside the top flight. 

Don't know if down ti the shite we've had, but he seems to get better. 

Another couple of seasons out of him as well.  Brilliant.

He's the reason we'll be alright this season.

He's just not good enough to be a starter.

 

Useful addition from the bench if we're under pressure though.

It took Halliday to show them how press them properly. I'm sure his hatred of Celtic had something to do with it but still :laugh:

Found this a bit odd if I'm being honest😅 like who was it aimed at?

He did know there was no away fans in the stadium right? No shit you can't hear them singing🥴

Ah fair enough, makes sense. Just thought it looked like the kind of thing you'd do to wind up the away support after putting them to bed.

In the sand with his pale. 😎

 

Wish Neilson would dig him out the starting eleven.

 

Not good enough for the SPL, even struggled in the championship especially when played in the middle of the park.

I thought Halliday did well. Not as well as Beni but then he was outstanding. It was 2 v 3 in the middle of the park for 70 minutes so the midfield was always going to be up against it. He also covered a ridiculous amount of ground and was a constant motivator.

 

He was fortunate with the challenge on McGreggor, he also took a shocker form Sorrow. Hearts only conceded 4 fouls in the game which shows the overall discipline was exceptional.

 

Hearts fans seem to need a hate figure, Halliday is the target just now.

It's very reassuring to learn that we managed to beat Celtic on their opening match (not happened since 1997) whilst playing with only 10 men. I failed to notice that at the game. Just imagine our stroll to win the SPL this season when we start fielding 11 men. Cannae wait. 😀

It was noticeable to me that the Hearts players weren't diving in to challenges to make it easy for Celtic to win free kicks into our box. I thought it showed great discipline and defensive skill to match any moves made by individual Celtic players, forcing them to play it backwards a lot of the time. The only real complaint from me would be the time and space Turnbull was given. He was the one causing us problems until, surprisingly, taken off.

Good call, Celtic went backwards more times than I can remember for a long time.

They're no different than most teams when struggling to break down a opponent. Bain had more pass backs to him than Gordon did. Granted they had more ball possession than us but it still isn’t what we’re used to with them. Think the manager will struggle here. Doubt he’ll be given much time with the entitlement that fan base believe is due them.

One of the worst Celtic teams I can remember.

Nope he is utter gash I cannot for the life of me understand why he gets picked 

One of the first midfielders I have seen 

100% useless

He’s not good. Nothing against him, he seems a decent guy but he just doesn’t bring enough to the table to be a starter for us. 100% keep him as a squad player. 
 

If we want to be challenging for Europe and cups then we need better than Andy Halliday.

The ref saw the ‘incident’ and called a foul. Can he be punished retrospectively in that circumstance?

Very Definitely, if he had been booked at the time, no further action could have been taken

it’s only the usual token few on here tbf.  The high majority of supporters don’t dislike his play and appreciate his contributions. I’ve said before I’d be surprised if any player bothers reading these forums, and even more surprised if they give a toss what a handful of folk say about them.

Thanks for clarifying. It seems I wrongly assumed that calling a foul and not carding him at the time meant that was it over.
