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.

  8. Hoopy birthday big jimmy.

     

    Hope you have lots more.get yourself a bottle of Buckie and give it laldy.

  9. Not one Scottish team has ever won 4 Scottish cups 4 times in a row …

     

     

    Neil Lennon possible history maker ?

     

     

    If our main opponents/rival’s manger wins his first ever managerial trophy it will be exaggerated beyond belief ….

     

     

    Neil will probably end up getting stick from some of his own even “if” he wins

     

     

    Never underestimate the media that you don’t even read or listen too :-)

    I see we have group planning a welcome to the manager and the team prior to the the cup final.

     

     

    I wonder if there are any of the same ” fans ” singing Lennon, Lennon GTF and chasing team buses a few weeks ago.

     

     

    There is a word for that I’m sure most of our more articulate posters would recollect.

     

     

    HH.

  11. GP 9.17am

     

     

    These “groups” that gather during a global pandemic and when others aren’t meant to be able to meet members of their own family … in my opinion lose all credibility… if unhappy with the “board” they have had a number of years to be annoyed… ReS12 now 11 has been “out there” for many years … why wait till the team “might” lose a title before voicing there concerns … I suppose the “protesters” can only answer that …

     

     

    Hopefully you enjoy the game tomorrow and McChuils in 2021 to celebrate the 10 “if” Neil and the bhoys can deliver it (I still think it’s possible :-)

  12. ” I’d never play him again’, ‘100%’ – many Celtic fans want Barkas left out of Cup final XI ”

     

     

    I don`t know IF this was said at all let alone by `many` (or how many `many` is.

     

    IF true, and just before a Cup Final,definitely not my idea of `support`.
