Lpm is just a complete c**t I’m sure he won’t care what hammill even had to say himself about being subbed.

A Clean sheet with Rodgers having very little to do and he’s even in desperation trying to scrape the barrel about how Oran didn’t tighten up the defence with that sub.

I wouldn't go as far as agreeing with your first sentance as I don't actually know the poster but his take on the game was rather strange.

I wasn't sure about Hammill coming off but I thought Cammy Smith was really good when he came on. Full of energy and chipped in with a fair bit of defensive work.

His tackle then surging run and through ball for Jackson (who was tackled as just about to shoot) was superb.

I'd agree if it was a big immobile forward coming on but not in the case of Smith and Mullen as both provide plenty of energy in the final third and feel this was the correct thing to do. It meant we had an effective outball and forced Hearts not to commit everyone forward in the closing stages. 
Hammill going off for another midfielder and sticking to one up front would have seen Hearts commit another player forward and it would have been backs to the wall stuff in the closing quarter. At the point where Hammill came off, our game plan was working well, so like for like with fresh legs rather than inviting extra waves of attack was definitely the correct call for me.
Agreed.

Re Hamill coming off, he was rubbing his hamstring as he got up off the ground.

Much better safe than sorry.

I thought he had another goal in him... But it wasn't worth the risk.

Having just watched the highlights Kyle was lucky not to get a red card. (Only favour Thomson did us all game)

I thought the yellow was a bit harsh as there was no malice in the collision.  However , I think there was a good penalty claim for a push they never got but they would still have lost. .

Overall the the team was much more hungry and aggressive.  .and with 19 fouls against Thomson noticed that.

Can’t really add much to what’s already been posted, superb performance.

Man of the match could have been any one from Hammill, Paul McGinn, Magennis, Alfie Jones. Thought Erhahon was good at left back too. Made one error, tracked back and helped us win back possession, that’s exactly the type of player we need right now.

Keeper very solid also, good distribution. Not many negatives, lots of positives and gives us something to build on.

Rogers only had two opportunities to shine. He pushed one ball away for a corner and missed the other one completely. Luckily that was called for offside.

He certainly was good with the ball at his feet.

To be fair if we had two goalies in neither of them would have stopped that header.

Oran is the manager so he will make that call based on happens this week in training. Hearts were poor upfront Jones and Baird were comfortable . Anton is our best defender so its a no brainer if he is fit

Very much my feeling , but Jones and Bairdy played well , wonder if we might try a back 5 , with Jones being encouraged to push forward and support the midfield if he gets the chance , it might make us more physical and well worth trying out for our two away games coming up .

Nor the bookies , or anyone else for that matter , apart from those fans hoping for any crumbs of comfort.  Terrific result. Let's hope there isn't another Accies nightmare,  like there was after the last false dawn. One game at a time till Jan 1

Yes , well , false dawn number ..........................................
