Not true mate. 

Mac is injured at the moment. Was supposed to play against Spartans but picked up an injury in training.........Just passing on what I heard from one of the players.

True. Otherwise he probably would be playing as first choice centre back. I would still keep him though as he is the best we have when fit and he was part of that cracking side that saved us and got us promoted.

Yes ???? And I also replied to Ulysses that his version was probably more accurate , or did you miss that ?

I like MacKenzie, but I worry about his injury record, and I have a feeling that premiership forwards would prey on his lack of pace, like our current CH's.

We definitely need a premiership quality CH that can slot into our defence immediately.

Kpekwa lumbering about the box and diving in for the Sunderland penalty was a painful sight.  If that's the speed this guy is going to move at we are going to need someone with the pace of Usian Bolt alongside him to cover his endless mistakes.

We badly need minimum 2 wingers and 2 strikers as we currently have no wingers at the club.

 

Smith and Mullen are no10s playing behind the striker they have no pace to play out wide.

 

Cooke looks like a downgrade from Ross Stewart and king looks like a downgrade from hippolyte.

 

Hope We manage to get players in this week in time for the Dundee game.

 

I think Stubbs was hoping to get mikey Johnstone in from Celtic last week but for Celtic to decide to wait for now.

 

With other premiership teams struggling in the league cup I don’t think we are alone in being behind in putting together a decent squad aswell

Well he missed 22 league games last season and has been injury prone his whole career.

Do you think this is suddenly going to change?

 

Very decent player to have at the Club. Was given a contract by Jack. Important part of the team and dressing room. No reason to  offload him when the recruits are so poor.

Flynn is a winger. But I agree we need a couple more in

Was I don’t think he has the pace anymore at nearly 30 years of age looks more comfortable playing more central.

Coulson is a winger. Maybe push him forward, bring back Eck to LB and get Cammy more central.

He’s a left back and looks like he’s brought in to play left back.

I think he would suit us much better playing further toward as he the only one with the ability to run at people and beat them.

Doesn’t look like eck will be coming back into the squad

Anyone know if we trying to get Liam Smith back ? Did we even ask ? Haven't seen him mentioned/featuring in any Hearts games recently.

Liam was a  Jack Ross signing. New manager has his own plans. In fact, when you think about, with Jack signing Paul McGinn, he maybe already accepted that there was no chance of getting Smith back.

Missing 22 league games last season is reason enough to offload him.

No point in having a decent player if he is sitting in the stands most weeks.

Does Stubbs know anything about him. :rolleyes:

Did he start the other 14 games, there were a good few games where he was an unused sub as Davis and Baird were both playing.

He said in an interview after killie that he's not fully match fit but will be by the start of the season

Player himself also backed this up on Buddievision by saying hes 60/70% fit at the moment and needs game time.
