Hearts resentment reservoir

581

If you do not have a knot in your stomach, you should.  Hearts managed to relegate themselves last season through inept performances against teams clearly below them in the food chain.  They upped their game against Hibs and (especially) Newco, posing questions that the Budgeocracy has yet to consider.  On Sunday, we face a team of usually-can’t-be-bothereds with a grudge.

In October, they started their Championship campaign by putting six goals past Dundee, whom they blame for siding with Peter Lawwell in the discussions that determined how last season’s league campaign would end.  Then they beat Hibs, who they can always be bothered to play, in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

The new stands at Tynecastle act as a reservoir of resentment and Celtic are top of their list.  Who else, other than their players, either managers, or the insightful new broom that was going to show football how it’s done in the business world, is there to blame for their relegation than Celtic.

And then there’s Eddie.  You and I didn’t really discuss this at the time.  A photo circulated showing the keeper took him out, but that was ‘fake news’ as it was not of the penalty incident in the 2019 final.  Hand on heart; I think we got away with one then.  A goal down in the second half, Odsonne Edouard took control; before you knew it, you were celebrating a Treble Treble.

I do not respect Heart of Midlothian FC whatsoever, but I respect any opponent who can so readily cultivate the unifying resentment that can produce results like the 4-0 that ended Celtic’s world record 69 domestic games unbeaten.  This is a proper team, better than most in the Premiership and more than capable of winning on Sunday.  If we are one inch less prepared than them, we will lose.

Before the Lille and Kilmarnock wins I saw a shroud of defeat ahead at Hampden.  We may have turned it around just in time, but for now, the stomach remains knotted.

  1. As for putting the ball in the net, all that it takes is confidence, concentration, & composure.

     

    Not leaning back when striking the ball, getting ones body over the ball, & also opening up

     

    ones body when about to shoot as well.

     

    Also, one can pass the ball into the Net. I remember Paul Lambert, passing the Ball into

     

    the Motherwell net, a few Seasons ago @ Fir Park, which we won that day 4 – 1.

     

    & I remember on the Coach going back home, one of our fellow Supporters said that was a

     

    good result @ a difficult venue. ( a banana skin venue) Yeah, he was damn tooting about that.

    According to 67Hail Hail, we have a free weekend towards the end of January 2021.

     

     

    If & I mean if, we can pick up positive results between now & then, & no more horror

     

     

    shows, then as a nice wee incentive, the Management & Squad, could rifle over to

     

    Dubai, for a nice wee seven days Winter Training Break.

     

    —–

     

    I’m sure I read a couple of weeks ago that we were going to Dubai, the week before the Monday Hibs game.

    No that matter was canceled after the Hibs match, due to fixture list.

     

    However, the weekend we are meant to play St Mirren, (Sunday The 24th of January 2021)

     

    that match will have to be moved, because St Mirren are in the BetFred League Cup Semi

     

    that weekend, which means we have a free weekend on that weekend.

  5. Paul 67 et al,

     

     

    There were a few of us on CQN that didn’t agree with relegating Hearts.

     

    I still think it was wrong and unfair.

     

     

    ‘re: Odsonne Edouard: Surely he must up his game for a cup final. I am sure he will play at some stage and for me this will be an acid test.

     

     

    HH to all, history awaits.

  7. However, I’ve noticed that although we have said weekend 23/24 Jan 2021 Free.

     

    Our next match after that weekend, is Wednesday the 27th of January 2021

     

    which is a Home Match against Hamilton.

     

    However, we only have two SPL fixtures in March 2021.

     

    No doubt March, will be taking up with another Scottish Cup Weekend, along

     

    with another International break. & We now have three postponed SPL fixtures

     

    to complete, a back log, however if we could move the Home Match against

     

    Hamilton on the 27/1/21 until either sometime in March 2021, or April 2021,

     

    then that would free up more days, to rifle over too Dubai for a week, during

     

    January 2021.

    I absolutely agree that the new guys won’t have enjoyed the unique atmosphere that the club enjoys.

     

     

    Mores the pity.

     

     

    As i say, not an excuse for me and we must be careful not to even hint otherwise. All clubs are likewise affected.

     

     

    Looking ahead to Sunday, I dont believe we’ve quite turned the corner in league terms. However, I suspect a 2 or 3-1 victory.

     

     

    Let’s win the 4 by 3 and see what awaits us next.

  9. That would give us from the 20th of January 2021 until the 3rd of February 2021, which is more

     

    than seven days, fourteen days in total which is plenty of time to take a seven days break in

     

    Dubai. Also the matches we have on the 20/1/21 & the 3/2/21 are tricky potential banana skin

     

    fixtures, which are, on the 20/1/21 we have Livingstone Away, & on the 3/2/21 we have Kilmarnock

     

    @ Rugby Park, anyway food for thought.

     

     

    Gene, the answer to your question is No.

    Yeah, the only thing Radio Clyde give away, is their comments on the Footy

     

    Phone In, that is for sure.

  12. Craig Gordon could/can pull off wonder saves from goal bound efforts. He is also pretty hopeless at cross balls and an absolutely liability when the balls at his feet.

    Their “proper team” got knocked out of the League Cup by Alloa.”

     

     

    I thought the point of Paul`s article was that Hearts can be difficult opponents when they feel the have a score to settle. That would not have been the case against Alloa.

     

     

    “There will be no excuses for not dispatching them comfortably.”

     

     

    Will there be praise, though, if we do complete an amazing quadrupple?

    “Their keeper is way better than any of hours (admittedly, not seen enough of Hazard to judge) and has a point to prove. I’ll be really surprised if he doesn’t have an excellent game.@

     

     

    I felt Craig Gordon was a fantastic shot – stopper. I felt he was much less impressive in dealing with crosses/corners. Duffy,Jullien and Ajer could cause problems for him.
