Next manager - alex neil?

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Aug 2017 16:58:40
Neil just took up a poat with PNE last month. Compenstion might be a problem.

01 Aug 2017 23:24:56
So he did lol stevie clarke? Just putting names other than ones you always get yogi hughes etc.

01 Aug 2017 13:50:01
I'd like Tommy wright he's worked miracles a St Johnstone but would he put up with leviens interference.

{Ed007's Note - It's not really interference though, it's part and parcel of working with a DOF. Cathro was no more than first team coach and had little input on recruitment etc and the next appointment will need to work under the same system unless there's a change above the coach (manager) level.}

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Aug 2017 16:23:42
Alex neil next through the door.

01 Aug 2017 12:56:55
Levein needs to go asap he interferes and causes disruption between manager and players he says one thing to manager and another to players.

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Aug 2017 15:07:33
That's because it's his job! People need to remember he is in charge, and I quote Anne Budge directly, "of all footballing matters". So it's not interfering, it's doing what he is paid to do.

05 Aug 2017 12:00:38
Its the managers job to manage the team not leveins.

01 Aug 2017 12:13:24
We don't need a hearts legend as manager. We need an experienced manager who understands football. Paulo sergio for me. Unfinished business.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Aug 2017 11:24:58
Well cathro is away, levien should have gone as well. yogi already said he's interested. might do a better job for use, descent guy.

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Aug 2017 11:25:28

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2017 11:23:33
Who thinks we will get a proven manager, Levin dodges another bullet, Levin selected Cathro I guarantee he picks another in proven manager as no other manager would put up with his interference in the squad.

{Ed007's Note - Paul Hartley?}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2017 16:24:46
Alex neil?

01 Aug 2017 09:45:29
Cathro sacked.

Agree2 Disagree1

01 Aug 2017 10:06:52
Not true.

01 Aug 2017 10:22:49
True, thank God,

01 Aug 2017 10:26:33
Yes it's true. Gary Locke? What's the chances?

01 Aug 2017 10:31:08
Wouldn't think Gary Locke, I'd say Gary naismith,

01 Aug 2017 11:28:09
Naismith maybe but heard Paul Hartley's name bein throw about. Is that the same man who loved Hearts but kissed the Celtic badge? No Thanks next please. Need a hearts legend who loves the club like a Locke or nelison.

{Ed007's Note - Hearts legends? Won't they all be too old or too dead for the job?}

31 Jul 2017 07:41:52
Hearts looking to sign Newcastle keeper, the highly rated 20yr old is looking for first team football, however a number ofEFL clubs want him also. Levin must make this happen. Season long loan expected.

Agree1 Disagree3

30 Jul 2017 22:58:18
I have a strong feeling that Walker will be going. not worried about it however, we're going to get nowhere near the value we wanted.

Why am I not worried? If he's our 'best player' how come he has little impact in big games (excluding the Sevco game)? Dons have/ had Rooney, Christie, Pawlett, Hayes and McGinn- all of which could win big games themselves. Walker can't.

Personally, if he goes to sevco I really hope his career goes to 💩 And he only gets worse and worse and worse. never getting into the Scotland team and eventually has to watch his Pals- Souttar, McGhee, Hamilton and Paterson succeed because they were smarter.

Bye bye, over rated

I know that this is going to be the post that gets me ridiculed but to be honest, I read all the posts on here and half are nonsense and I wonder what that says about the poster. So this will be my last post, later.


Agree2 Disagree4

31 Jul 2017 10:33:41
You hope walkers career goes down hill. if he leaves, he leaves. no player is bigger than your club, plus you did not stand at Tynecastle, scarf in hand jumping and screaming if and when he scored against hibs, celtic, rangers etc.

You probably thought, get in there, brill walker. so if he done his time at hearts same as paterson, stevenson, wallace etc. when they left be a man and say cheers for your service. now you support who's still with your club or who signs.

31 Jul 2017 15:02:38
Did I not? Okay, must've been my clone then.

31 Jul 2017 20:05:38
To be honest, my view on CP is worse- we played a crucial part with his rehabilitation yet he didn't feel like repaying the club that he loves? OKay mate, enjoy Wales.

31 Jul 2017 23:04:27
Get your point bad news hearts or so rehablitate players an do one etc

just your post on walker lads done his time wants new challenge etc like lots of players at clubs do but do agree after clubs stick by and rehab lads they should show more support for the clubs.

01 Aug 2017 09:21:08
The three players of Pat, Nich and Walker were supposed to be our big pay day. so far we've lost two and only gained £400000. let's hope they get sold for big money in the future so these sell on clauses get us some cash.

01 Aug 2017 13:25:01
Patterson and Nicholson left on a free, you will never get a penny from their future transfers. You will get 700k max spread over 3 years for Walker or you will lose him fore nothing next year.

the jambos have really messed things up over the last couple of years. 100% leviens fault.

29 Jul 2017 20:16:02
Game over for cathro and levein. They both must go. No shape to the line up, no visible tactics, no fight, passion, desire. need I say anymore. This could be a long season.

Agree5 Disagree0

30 Jul 2017 08:14:20
Both need to go, Levin needs to sign proven manager youth academy reds it, when are fans going to realise that Levin is controlling everything too in experienced Managers being mentored by Levin, either Levin steps up or he leave alone.

30 Jul 2017 14:22:54
Not a hearts fan but personally levin needs to ship out of hearts i don't think cathro has final say looking at his expressions while on tv in dugout or doing interviews etc either cathro grows a pair stands up tells levin or he ain't got a chance in hell at hearts . levin picking team transfers etc etc an cathro will be the fall guy if all goes tits up as levin sits back with a smile pondering his next ploy to make scapegoat if goes tits up again.

30 Jul 2017 21:21:52
news for you guys yogi Hughes is interested in the hearts job if it becomes available, think he would be better than cathro but not sure the fans would welcome this but hearts deserve better than the chuckle brothers.

28 Jul 2017 18:43:37
The walker contract will be signed but towards the end of transfer deadline and heard we are looking at goalkeeper not got a name yet as soon as I have I will let you know.

Agree2 Disagree2

28 Jul 2017 20:47:36
Let's hope so.

Sick of the stick Hamilton gets. Promising young keeper.
Ten times better than VN.

29 Jul 2017 00:39:59
Walker dropped from today's squad acording to the currant bun.
Is the contract he's signing this week for another club's?

29 Jul 2017 08:19:33
Was just coming on to post that!
I personally wouldn't sell him, I'd omit him from the squad all year.

30 Jul 2017 08:17:38
He has to play, these players get paid based on a signed contract. Hearts needed him yesterday Levin/ Cathro got it wrong, we missed him in middle of the park hence long ball constantly,

27 Jul 2017 20:46:31
Heard from Dundee united fan today that Bjorn Johnsen was at Tannidice for loan talks today. No idea if it's true, seems unlikely to me as I think he would get better offers abroad but that's the rumour.

Also read today that st Johnston are looking at Sammon.

Be glad to see them both go although I feel another manager would get more out of both players.

I'm not a Cathro out man, and I really like all players we have bought in this summer but having watched the east fife game I do have concerns for the season ahead. 2 passes to get to a wide man instead of one 30 yard straight forward pass, also noticed far to many passes behind players causing them to come back. At amateur level you get told to play the ball infront to allow the player to come onto. Smith would have terrorised their full back with all the room he had with more but instead had to come back to collect the ball and then passed it back inside as the space was gone. It's pre season but I still expected better, simple things that lift the tempo and allow us to get in behind teams before they get the numbers back.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jul 2017 08:24:27
The quality of the EF game was reduced due to the horrific conditions, I was watching it on Hearts TV in Greece (so the connection was awful) but the prominent sound was the torrential rain.

I've read (a while back) English clubs were interested in Bjorn but nothing's come of it. which is a shame.

Heard about Sammon too, I think it will happen for sure.

Don't worry yet, plenty of time for some more quality signings!

28 Jul 2017 16:07:46
Yiou think Sammon will happen for sure.
Have they not agreed terms with Myles Storey of Aberdeen?

26 Jul 2017 09:29:42
Walker will sign new contract at hearts he has his sights set on big move down south I have heard at least 2 EPL clubs keeping a watchful eye on him but he needs to have a good season at hearts for this to happen.

Agree0 Disagree4

26 Jul 2017 11:51:26

26 Jul 2017 19:32:03
Can't see anything on tv or on sites where's the sorce.

27 Jul 2017 09:30:51
Don't care, the bloke has got many things correct; I'm hoping this is too!

27 Jul 2017 16:44:02
Hope he has think he should stay.

25 Jul 2017 22:16:10
That's probably Walker off then; why would he stay at a team who can't even beat a pathetic team.

Djoum needs to go- thinks because he got into the Cameroon squad he's suddenly too good for us? No, bye bye.

Don't like all the abuse directed at hamilton every single game; he's still a young keeper and has more experience than most at his age- he'll get better with time.

Humiliating that they were outplaying us for the time that they did; just not good enough, not Cathro'a fault- I can't stand these 'Cathrine Oot' fans either.

One good thing is Lafferty scored again; already a quarter of the way to his 20 goal season! Let's hope he can score at our level.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Jul 2017 22:43:36
Oh wait, a fifth- he's only scored four right?

24 Jul 2017 12:42:07
Sevco's new and IMPROVED offer is £600'000. I always thought they were stupid but this really confirms it.

We've said since the start, not looking to sell and if we were forced £1 million minimum. these measly 100'000 increases are nothing.

Shove off Gers.

Side note; its quiet here, any news on this improved contract for JW?

Agree5 Disagree1

24 Jul 2017 23:44:23
Hope he does stay with hearts but I've heard he's going.

25 Jul 2017 08:25:11
I'd love to get over a million if I knew we would spend it on players; which we won't- therefore, JW'a 15 goals would still be missing. I would rather lose him for nothing and have a stronger season in my opinion.

Hibs And hearts both linked with Cifcti.

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Jul 2017 21:17:51
Hibs can have him, he'd be 4rth choice at Tynecastle.

17 Jul 2017 22:01:07
Have to agree can't see this one happening, lafferty said he was promised the central role in a top 3, likely Stockton will be his backup and Walker and goncalves or currie playing off them. Still got bjorm and salmon so top heavy for that's target man type role. Could do with bjorm and salmon moving on and another attacking midfielder/ pacey striker type coming in, would have loved to have got GMS but obviously Aberdeen have got him now.

18 Jul 2017 13:55:28
I agree we not want him either but he is at er today.

15 Jul 2017 22:26:22
If the huns what walker give us500k and o'halloren. thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Jul 2017 22:53:44
Don't think Rangers will do that but I would take it.

16 Jul 2017 01:44:23
Hoping he doesn't go to them, o'halloren or cadden wiuld be ideal replacements for walker.

16 Jul 2017 09:41:45
750k plus O'halloran would be more like it!

16 Jul 2017 09:44:01
O'Halloren yes; but not sure about Cadden. I just hope Walker stays another season and wins a move to a Team down South; but not Rangers. remember Templeton?

16 Jul 2017 18:22:50
Heard the deal is £750k and that's the final deal but think hearts are going to take it?

17 Jul 2017 07:08:41
With staggered payments. what a joke.

17 Jul 2017 09:40:11
Walker going to sign contract extension for 3 years.

17 Jul 2017 14:51:41
Hope he does sabc but I heard he's refused it but time yet he would be better staying.

17 Jul 2017 22:04:49
Don't blame Walker for wanting away, would love him to stay but he's learnt his trade and is good enough to go to the English championship and hold his own whilst earning the big bucks. Not a lot more he can achieve here just don't understand why no English clubs have stepped in with a 1 mil bid. Bargain in today's market. Better than snodgrass, Johny Russell, Bryson, Noel hunt etc when they went south imo.

11 Jul 2017 21:16:39
Soriba Sylla and Aiden Keena on trial both scored in friendly tonight.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Jul 2017 22:32:35
Both 18, would be for the development squad me thinks If signed.

12 Jul 2017 23:53:03
He Defoe development players but not bad signings would prefer keena, but have you noticed a lot of spl teams are now building there development teams like the old days?

13 Jul 2017 10:45:33
We could finish up with a side that Keena and Berra than all the rest.

10 Jul 2017 17:59:04
Adrian Reggatin close to agreeing terms.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 18:24:28
Who lol.

10 Jul 2017 19:12:22
Right midfielder not exactly prolific.

10 Jul 2017 22:15:46
Rherras doppelganger.

10 Jul 2017 22:44:56
Plays for osmalispor records not great 5ft 5in midfielder 25 yr old but might be different in the spl but never played at that type of level.

11 Jul 2017 03:07:56
He spent most of his career at Toulouse in Ligue 1 which is a much higher level than the SPL. Wages will be too much I reckon. Hope not.

08 Jul 2017 21:15:14
It's all went very quiet on the ins and outs at Tyne.

Agree2 Disagree3

09 Jul 2017 11:47:47
Might be on other 1 in but can't see many more coming in mate.

09 Jul 2017 13:06:37
We definitely need either wingers or box to box midfielder in.

09 Jul 2017 14:11:51
A new signing looks likely before the Newcastle game, possibly even tomorrow.

04 Jul 2017 11:36:06
Gorgie boy any truth in the Tim Krul rumour?

Agree0 Disagree1

04 Jul 2017 13:04:45
Doubt it.

04 Jul 2017 16:24:58
No chance mate, last i heard arsenal were after him.

06 Jul 2017 14:03:15
Highly unlikely as I believe a Championship club made a £5m offer for him yesterday.

02 Jul 2017 11:51:51
Another hearts servant in to pick the team is this a sign that cathro will get binned?

Agree2 Disagree2

02 Jul 2017 15:27:06
Hi hibsboy how can you be so narrow minded, it is so obvious that cathro and mcphee are in charge of team. Just be honest with yourself, we are so much in front of your team in all aspects. Take it on the chin and move on.

03 Jul 2017 12:33:50
In front of our team in so many aspects 😂😂😂 that's a biased fan if Iv ever seen one, losing most of your homegrown players n turning them against you, signing polish etc that you've never seen play and start ranting about them being class, hilarious tbh.

03 Jul 2017 15:12:52
Hibzlad and Hibzboy why are use on her ranting your rubbish? No Jambo is on your forums ranting. I believe this is because us are closet JAMBOS and understand that HMFC are the top team in Edinburgh. Come across to the bright side of the town boys. You know use want to 👏👍.

03 Jul 2017 19:15:05
Hi hibslad we have signed 6 players 5 are British 1 from Poland. As far as losing our homegrown talent, who has actually left. Nicholson going to USA and possibly Walker, but nothing doing yet. A slight exaggeration from your point I think. Currie, mcgee, Brandon, Hamilton etc. home grown and many more coming through. Get your facts right and try holding on to your best players, oh I forgot you've sold them.

03 Jul 2017 18:49:53
Pmsfl miles ahead of us really cathro runs the team think you will find levien picks the team but you do need to get rid of the chuckle brothers.

03 Jul 2017 19:21:16
Not ranting I just told the truth.

03 Jul 2017 20:23:08
Hibsboy needs to get a life FACT.

03 Jul 2017 22:50:26
wasnt slagging but mentioning that Locke was back and is he going to take cathros place levein runs the team that's been proven and the chuckle brothers need Togo before you will move forward which even most heart supporters are saying nobody wanted Lafferty not even the hearts fans I hoping the Edinburgh teams. Do well this new season our new players will be unveiled soon and I'm looking forward to the new season.

03 Jul 2017 23:27:42
Harpo, Paterson away for nothing, walker leaving, Nicholson away, Currie has done nothing for use yet? Hamilton is very poor, McGhee wasn't even at you's last season and tbh use will probs punt him for a fee, Brandon? I don't even know who that is so that says it all, and that's a bit ironic saying wev sold our best players considering we have sold 1, fair play Simon Murray is a pretty average
Signing and won't do much but I'm sure it's back up and wel sign someone a bit better than him, well I hope so!

04 Jul 2017 10:27:19
Thomaso was being nice so play fair.

04 Jul 2017 11:33:03
Hi hibslad not a bad response, but way of the mark. Patterson wanted to leave to further his career, would rather he stayed, but just have to move on. Sell on clause in place, same as Nicholson, so it speaks volumes what they think of the club that nurtured them, and put them on the map. After all we are all selling teams, it's just the way it is up here. You bring them through the ranks, and if the show promise you sell and use the potential cash to bring in affordable players and so on. It's as simple as that. Being a bigger club than hibs we will always attract slightly better quality, as you and everyone else can see its happening. Bring on the new season and let the players do the talking. You slag of every player that signs for the big club. Ashley brown has just signed a 3 year contact àt man city, played at every level up to under 20s for England, and you are slating his ability. Take your head oût the sand. Good luck. You will be needing it in a wee while.

04 Jul 2017 14:30:49
I didn't slag him once he might've signed a contract you ever watched him play? Paterson a sell on clause? He left for nothing do you know what a free transfer is? Aye were all selling clubs up here fair enough but I still don't see how you's have attracted better quality or how you's are a bigger club? Kyle lafferty is poor even before he signed with use and he was linked with us I didn't want him near us. Selfish player all about himself, but I still don't see how use have attracted better players and I'm sure most of your fans on here will agree. And if not they'r deluded because so far all signings wev both made the only ones worth a mention is Berra to hearts and ambrose to hibs.

04 Jul 2017 14:35:39
Take your head out leveins erse n smell the coffee, you's are not ahead of hibs in any aspect of football whatsoever and I'm not biased it's just a true fact, from 2010ish up until 2015 hibs were just there to make up the numbers and il admit you's had every right to slate us then because the standard of player quality and football was so poor but I'm so confident we will beat use every time we play you this season, in all honesty what have you's done since winning
Championship? Can't even qualify for Europe.

04 Jul 2017 17:18:41
Hi hibslad I do know what a free transfer is, but we got £400,000 development fee plus 15% of potential selling on fee. Yes not ideal if he progresses could be sold for a few million. He wanted to leave, and yòu must remember is still recovering from serious injury, so who knows what will happen. I wish him well and I believe all real supporters will to, including yourself. Regarding Ashley brown I have not seem him play, but one of my mates sons has played against him several times, and rates him top class, an exciting prospect. By the way mates son played for hibs a few years ago, and was on man utd books for 3 years as a youth.

04 Jul 2017 21:10:52
Hi hibslad 3 seasons to get out of championship, we took 1 and finished 3rd in SPL. Won more trophies, have bigger support, sell more season tickets, have far better record against the wee team, the list goes on and on. All fact, and that's why we are the bigger team and attract better players. I do think you will do OK this season, but you will be looking up to Jambo's in more ways than one. Levein will have his input there is no doubt, if he didn't something would be wrong. Bringing in Lafferty and Smith both northern Ireland internationals I think Austin macfee had to do with that. Leave levein out of things and let him keep up the good work along with Ann budge to take hearts forward like they have made a great job so far. All big teams have a director of football. It's not a new thing, it's just some clubs can't afford one.

04 Jul 2017 23:15:24
Dont disrespect harpo but no you've got the chuckle brothers in charge and yes big teams like Barcelona Real Madrid have directors of football not silly wee teams in Scotland you've got a manager who has his team passing notes on the field and your not that far ahead of hibs were now only 500 season tickets behind you which I love because I want the Edinburgh sides to do well but we will wait and see bud but good luck in the new season.

05 Jul 2017 13:21:18
Hi hibsboy let the season begin and see what happens. You can't beat a bit friendly banter, you are never going to agree in what we Jambo's think, so let's just move on and let the players do the talking. I still say our signings are looking good, but good luck, and good to have the Derby back again. We did miss you in the big league, some easy points to look forward to.

05 Jul 2017 15:25:41
will see harpo would like to see other Edinburgh teams up there fighting.

05 Jul 2017 15:48:33
^^ yes, just not the wee, green team.

05 Jul 2017 20:17:09
So you would rather see septic, Huns above an Edinburgh side?

07 Jul 2017 10:26:03
Yes. There's no competition and there won't be for years. Why would I want some monkey team to win? I would prefer Celtic to win every year than a team other than us because why the hell would I want you Hobos to win it?

07 Jul 2017 21:16:25
I would love to see the yams win the league and hibs to come second rather than any other team even if would never happen but glad Derbys are back on the cards. Makes good money for both Scottish teams.

07 Jul 2017 23:13:21
Just shown your true colours mate and show how vial you are hibs and hearts deserve to be in the top tier of Scottish football and I hope we both do well.

03 Aug 2017 15:24:07
Vial? No, I just don't have any respect for your team or fans.


02 Jul 2017 09:45:56
Heard that's we are in advanced talks to swap Jamie Macdonald for Connor Sammon.

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Jul 2017 11:41:20
Mcdonald is about 50 steps backwards can't see that happening.

03 Jul 2017 13:50:40
I, m up for that thought Jamie got a rough deal.

03 Jul 2017 21:20:58
No chance McDonald will be back at Hearts, not rated by Levein.
