This is how we have been asking us to play all season ( I know we have before but this games was excellent ) Well done Utd for making this a fast flowing exciting game and well done Hearts players for getting stuck in and not thinking our season is over! We could easily have not bothered as our position was secure but NO! we went out to win and we did. Play like this in the cup final and we have a great chance of lifting the cup.

Ginnelly is an interesting one. First half he was pretty garbage. Off the pace, offsides, poor passes and just not reading the game at all. Second half - absolutely cracking game. Is that simply about confidence? 

I'd say its more about not being match sharp. he's not played much lately.

Magic support up there yesterday.

That fat UTD fan getting it tight was funny as feck. Get yer "t**** out for the lads" was brilliant. :rofl:

I made the rather dull point on this thread yesterday that Dundee Utd seem to really come out against us.

 

There have been 73 goals in Utd's games this season and over a quarter (20) have come in the 4 games with us.

I’m getting a bit pissed off with opposition Managers coming out and commenting about losing soft goals. Again yesterday Corts comes out and said the same thing. Our first goal may have been soft but their keeper makes an arse of the cross. The other two goals were a thing of beauty. Both passes left the DU defence on their heals. However both Gino and Ellis had a lot of work to do to convert them. Robbie never makes comments about opposing teams. He could have said a lot about Hibs dirty play for instance.

To be honest with you mate, our second goal is shambolic by united. Straight ball over the top. Zero pressure on Cochrane. Terrible goal to concede

The cup final is more meaningful. 

 

There's not often in your life time we've had European group stage football tied with no chance of going up or down a league position either with a cup final in the bag. 

How many times has that happened in your life? 

 

 

Every game has some meaning tho, 

Points, win bonus, confidence, match fitness, fighting for a place in the team etc. 

Clearly some games are more important or meaningful than others. The cup final is up there. 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course But I was replying to a comment that none of our remaining league games are in any way meaningful.

Robbie, the players and the travelling fans clearly saw some meaning in yesterday's game.

Craigan's summary of Simms goal at Hampden (while not a manager) was typical merde.  All about Hibs defence, and the goal being a thunderous shot as an afterthought.

Maybe taking folk too literal. 

 

I don't think anyone believes the games or any are completely meaningless. 

 

Some definitely have priority tho.

O see what you mean, and for the third Barry jogged half the length of the pitch before playing the pass to Simms, also with zero pressure on Barry.

There's not many goals scored where you can't blame the defence for something (maybe Kingsley's last week?).

 

Utd's 2 goals were brilliantly executed, from one perspective.

From a defensive perspective, Haring gets megged and Cochrane sells himself way too cheaply for the first. Likewise for the second, Boyce lets him get a shot away. Two soft goals right there, Tam. 😉

Yes, I was wrong to say they were not in any way meaningless, as they will always be meaningful to the fans.  I meant they were meaningless in terms of where we end up in the league, so there is no need for us to take any risks with players in these games, whereas Rangers could be involved in very meaningful games all the way to the final 🤞

 

We actually saw an example of the safety first approach yesterday.  Robbie said McEneff was ready to play on, but Robbie decided it wasn't worth the risk.

That's how I read  it when folk say meaningless.

Yep. There’s much jealousy about Heart of Midlothian among the also

rans.

Seen the highlights.  Two really good goals from them.  Credit where it's due.  Superb winning goal from us.

 

Terrific support.

"Not in any way meaningful" was what I replied to. I was not taking it "too literal". I was taking it as what was very clearly written. 

But glad what what was written has been corrected to confirm that for some and in some ways the games are indeed meaningful.

Depends on the context surely...

in a famine zone or going out to a restaurant it would mean different things. 

Anyway as I said  it has been clarified as "in no way  meaningful as far as our final league position is concerned".

Fair doos. 

 

You maybe need to holiday elsewhere.

It's all about the ball from Barry and the run and finish from Ellis, the attack beat the defence

The run from Simms makes the goal. If he runs in a straight line he’s not on for a pass. 
 

It’s exceptional movement running across the line. Show that to any young aspiring striker and tell them to learn from it.
