Well if I was to pick a particular moment it would be when he took the ball off Vaughan in the hearts box then nutmegs 2 players and drives into our half and then mesmerises our defence with step -overs and floors mendy. He then flicks the ball up and goes for an over head kick that completely beats the keeper but comes off the bar, so unlucky. 

I thought that was a great move too. 😉

Thought we were pretty good tonight, hearts are an excellent team and we definitely pushed them tonight. I think that should give the players some confidence going into the league now.

Highlights from last night. Apologies, I filmed the game last night but I'm not a 'proper' cameraman 🤣 

You'll notice there is commentary, we don't usually have commentary on highlights for a few reasons, and that still stands... however there was an issue with the sound on the recording so it was either use the commentary or have silence during a penalty decision so opted to use it as a one off.

Just watched the highlights good to see Vaughan get a run out, cracking goal by Duku, Bene and Davo going to cost us big style this season. Thought Mendy may be the issue not so sure when I see Hearts 3rd goal, Davo caught up field missing a tackle Bene beaten too easily with skill and pace. Hopefully Frankie comes in and shores up the centre of defence or we may need a loan player in there, bearing in mind we only improved last season when the experienced head of Anderson arrived.

Having watched the highlights , I noticed that when Lewis Vaughn comes on as sub, just look at Neilson and see what he does. 🤔

Maybe it’s just my paranoia and increasing dislike for the man but is he alerting the Hearts players to target Lewis suspect knee?

Tbf, it's not like Bene and Davo aren't experienced (and I feel like Bene really wasn't at fault for either penalty, 1st never is one and second is an unfortunate slip on a shite surface) and it's not like Ando didn't get ragdolled by Goodwillie at Broadwood. Clearly our starting system last night was totally wrong. 3 at the back with little pace, with full backs being asked to bomb forward was always asking too much of our CBs in terms of playing a higher line to fill in the space. Left way too much room in behind.

Obviously we lost that third goal when we were pushing well forward, but we did look more solid when we went to a back 4.

That's not to say I disagree with you on the whole. I think we do need more pace at the back, but I guess in the mean time we have to find ways around it.

I just spotted that too and I think that's exactly what he's doing, the rat.

The camera work is poor tbh.

Certainly looked like that to me.

I’d like to see Robbie asked about that little knee point. I’m willing to extend the benefit of the doubt, possibly alerting left-footed or that he’s coming back from a knee issue and letting his players know he might not be a maneuverable, but there is also the chance he is targeting him, especially given his questionable statements leading up to the game.

Absolutely unnecessary, this is a non-story.

It’s something a non-fan asked me about when I showed them the video, so it appears “something”. I agree we don’t “know” it’s anything, but it looks out of the normal.
