***Official Heart of Midlothian v Livingston fc match day thread***


Smith's right boot

Recommended Posts

Can’t wait for this one.  Hopefully we can put extreme pressure on them from the off and get an early goal.

I don’t believe any game will be easy, but would love us to convert more of our chances and it would be amazing win by a couple or more.

Id imagine they will be in our faces but that won’t intimidate our squad, not any more.

I thought that the RC and Motherwell game were the potential banana skins in this 3 game run

 

Livi at home should get battered

 

And I don't care that Celtic were crap and slipped up.

 

Hearts 4-1 Livingston

 

Boyce x 2, GMS and a Haring header

4-1 win.  I have the Ryder Cup to concentrate on and can't worry about two things at once.

 

Ginnelly to run riot.

A good game to start converting the fairly high number of chances we’ve been creating. Need to get the home form going again against a bottom 6 team (they will be) clean sheet and a few goals coming IMO

Don't think new Rangers have ever won the league cup.  Interesting to see what happens tonight.  Referee really needs to stand up for them.

I hope they repeat their shots at goal and on target from tonights game on Saturday.

WTF is a “low block”? 🤔

The thing is with GMS-

 

If he was assisting, winning penalties and even scoring as he's done but then scored even more he'd never be with us in the first place. 

 

He's with us because he's not the complete player and is frustrating at times.

To be honest I sympathize with the GMS stuff not saying he’s bad but at the moment I’ve not seen enough. Will we ever start Ginnelly Boyce and Woodburn? Is it too obvious? Really don’t get it

In fairness to the coaches, new players are settling in and you can't start everyone.  To your specific point though, I hope the we quickly identify our strongest line-up for an attacking game.

 

We should be a class above Livingston.  We should always be a class above them.

To have such a lack of ambition in a cup game is embarrassing.

It’s jargon for sitting back and defending.

This era's "camped on the 18 yard line".

To be fair, Ginnelly didn’t do any better than GMS when he last came on against Hibs.

It seems really strange that I once played in a pre season friendly for them when they were Ferranti Thistle.  Wouldn't have dreamt or nightmared that one day they would beat Hearts 5-0. Even worse that there would be a run of several games against them where we barely scored a goal.

 

They need a good, sound thrashing.

McKay will be starting ahead of Gino at the weekend, going by the noises from Roberto, in the DR piece, today.

He hasn't done particularly well this season so far. I was undecided between starting Gino or GMS but I would now defo start GMS. Let's face it, Gino's best performances have come from the bench.

 loved how direct he was, how he beat a man and got it in quickly or took a shot at goal as soon as he had a sniff..  he’s not shown that much this season

I especially liked this comment from the Bobmeister. So if its 0-0 after 70 minutes then send on another defender and shut up shop.

 

“The key thing for me was that if you’re not going to win the game, make sure you take a point out of it.

Hearts manager Robbie Neilson has told his players he expects maximum points from successive home games against Livingston and Motherwell. (Record)

Quite the correct decision to based on what we have seen from both so far. McKay in his short time on the pitch has shown far more that Ginnelly in my opinion and therefore worth a starting place.

 

Testament also to his fitness considering he never had a pre season and has looked in decfent condition.

 

Ginnelly on the other hand looks like one of those players that flatters to deceive and will spend more time out injured than he will on the pitch.

Absolutely agree with getting McKay on from the start. Ginnelly and GMS have been very average thus far.

 

Not at all convinced we have a big win in us. 

 

Delighted to be proved wrong, of course, but I'd be pleased with Hearts 1-0.

He seems to me to be the type to go in the huff. His demeanour during games does not sit well with me. 

 

He has a choice. Get the finger out, work your nuts off and earn the contract we gave you. 

 

He is no first pick. It's up to him.

I agree totally. I have to say so far I am very disappointed in his contribution albeit early in the season.

 

Maybe he is one of those players that is quite happy sitting on the bench, I hope not but he doesn't look like he has a lot of fight in him.

You’re not allowed to say that or make the point on JKB though.

Referee for Saturday ; Gavin Duncan another referee out his depth and on a par with the clown form Ross Co.

at least we’ll be able to see lovely photos of the stadium pre match on his Facebook page which appears to be his major objective at every game he gets.

Think this will likely be the team, fitness permitting. Only worry with this is that they will defend deep and we are almost relying on 3 players to break that defence down. No Gnaduillet, GMS, Ginelly, Walker, Haring, Moore, Halliday in that team really does show the quality we have throughout the squad.

Hearts/ St Johnstone/ Europe.

 

Wonder what that would pay.  Two bankers in there but whether the old guard of England can beat the talented youngsters of the USA is questionable.

For me this is the game that will really show us how far we’ve come as a team. I fully expect Livi to sit in with 10 men behind the ball and for years now we’ve ran out of ideas against teams that do that at tynecastle

I agree on Gino. And I know what you mean with GMS. However, GMS has scored, got two assists and won two pens. That’s a lot of goal contributions.

The game v Rangers when Boycie scored on his debut? 🤔

My first game back at Tynecastle since the Kilmarnock 3/2 defeat 🤢

 

Can't wait for Saturday I was hoping it would be a goal fest! someone is due a hammering from us and I was hoping it would take place on Saturday THEN Livi go and beat Celtic 😂

 

Professional performance from Hearts they will camp in their 18 yard box and hope to catch us off guard with a break away 3-0 Hearts for me. Get an early goal take control of the game. 

I actually think that might be a good thing for us. Teams on terrible runs are usually our worst nightmare!

Their dealer/manager more or less said that would be their game plan in his interview yesterday
