  1. Report here. https://www.heartsfc.co.uk/news/article/match-report-st-mirren-1-2-hearts
  2. Doubt we’d put a sponsors name in the companies house address. You’d be having to update everything as and when you changed it. The stadium is sponsored, not the address.
  3. Yeah, a lot of the work will be unseen. Who knows what structures he’s helped to put in place in terms of the academy, scouting and analysis. While we have wyescout now, it wasn’t really there previously so that’s all been managed through.
  4. Nice bit of photoshopping/editing...
  5. The Observatory has been closed for a while, but looks to me like zero work has been carried out. With the museum closed, there’s literally nothing for tourists in the centre. I’d look at somewhere like Forbes place, view of the Abbey and town hall and, potentially, nice buildings there. Some cafes, independent brewery, space to sit outside, etc. for the High St, give space for independent shops and other venues to grow. The change in Dundee, for me, has been impressive. Some great bars and restaurants around and some people have taken it by the scruff of the neck. Independent brands like Hard Grind, Abandon Ship, etc have all flourished. Paisley has improved from an event perspective, but so little done from a commerce perspective. Not got much faith in the council to do much about it...
  6. fair play for trying to get the forum moving, I suppose.
  7. A signing a day keeps the knickerwetters away.
  8. Apart from the three days where we’ve signed players?
  9. Darvel are the new Hurlford on the Ayrshire scene, someone's pumping in decent money for a crack at the new set up. Yeah, they were the same level as Renfrew and Arthurlie last season and had quite a few ex pros kicking about. Rumours of £300 - £400 a week at that level.
  10. Surprised to read he’s still only 21. How many games has he played for us now? 100 or so plus 5 or 6 times for Scotland U21? I make that four seasons of first team football, and the first season he didn’t break through until October/November. Depends how you frame it.
  11. That’s a question you ask at the end of pre season, not the start. Close thread until August.
  12. Jack Alnwick...ex Rangers keeper that was on loan to Blackpool last season. Seems like we’ve moved on from Gordon.
  13. Nah, wouldn’t be comfortable going in to the season with Lyness as number one. He’s a decent enough backup, but that’s it. Had some ok performances when he stepped up, but he’s effectively played zero first team football in over a season, and his last run of games was playing 8 league games for Raith and the back end of the 2019 season.
  14. Anyone else bought a season ticket, but not received their ‘number’? Bought my ol da’s at the same time a fortnight ago but only got one through.
  15. Quite surprised at that! Any ‘second generation’ Italians? A Cardosi ever play in the reserves, for example?
  16. Sticking with the Italian theme...have we had many Italians turn out for us? I can only think of Donati.
  17. We are no better or worse than most other clubs in Scotland. More to be done on racism, homophobia and sexism, still too many shouts from our crowd using a term that relates to one of them.
  18. You seem determined to get this forum closed, anyone thinking of moderating would simply look at your continuous trolling of Faraway on every single thread and think "I'm out" I’d be surprised if the forum is here by the end of season. Seems like there’s about 10 frequent posters, and shite threads like this. It used to be where you’d come for some pretty solid rumours or hints that a signing was happening soon, but don’t think it serves that purpose anymore.
  19. Tried different browsers, but still no luck. It’s the address page that seems to be the issue, put a postcode in and it doesn’t bring up any results.
  20. Would have purchased today, but for that f**king website! I thought it was being looked at, but yet here we are a year later with the same monstrosity.
  21. I think the Euros will be moved to next year, all leagues will be suspended for a month/6 weeks and then resume, running until mid/end June. It might mean a change in format for the League Cup...drop the groups and just go back to knock out fitba.
  22. Think Goodwin said in the papers that he’s back in training but short on match practice.
  23. Don’t think it’s an SPFL rule though. Is there not something in law to say games can’t be televised, hence why pub landlords face prosecution if caught showing them? Here’s an article about someone being done. However, maybe it’s more to do with getting dodgy feeds: Link You’d think they’d relax the laws for this period as a way of keeping money in the game.
