What's the story with Berra? I presume his loan with Dundee is finished but what now?

I would presume Nielson will give him a second chance at Hearts.

The rumours are that he advised Budge he was taking another job (Schalke according to the 'ITK' on Kickback) and so Budge moved for Neilson at that stage.

It did seem strange the announcement regarding Stendel only came today.

What is also strange, is us not taking at least a month to get a replacement in.

Schalke? I’m sure they’re fans will be delighted if they are into Kickback (whatever that is).

I personally think his main problem was confidence, looked like he was shitting it every single time he was on the ball.

He totally transformed our defence last season. I would easily have him back but I can't see it.

This is an absolutely ridiculous statement, even in this summer of ridiculous statements.

Neilson 'surprisingly' returning means Stendel has to go. Well, aye. It normally works that way that you can't replace someone while they are still in a job and keep them both.

" I didn't expect to have to sack him but I also didn't expect a pandemic or for Robbie Neilson to chap my door and beg for a contract. I mean I couldn't say no to Robbie so Daniel you need to go. We can still be friends though?"

Mental.

His deal ends in 2021 I believe, so he won't be making an erse of himself in the premiership anyways.

We will likely agree to lend him back to Dundee then at the last minute change our minds!

At that stage in a player's career they need more recovery time.

The one time that Levein actually rested Berra was for the first trip to Paisley, but then Halkett got injured and he ended up playing most of that game anyway.

If both Halkett and Soutar had been available or if Levein had trusted Dikamona then he could have been given a lighter workload.

Yeah I forgot he was actually carrying a knock that game he was subbed on, it also doesn't help when every time he touched the ball the whole stadium was giving him pelters.

He was shite before he started getting pelters and that's why fans started getting on his back. 

For what it's worth, I think he was hung out to dry by Levein as the main tactic seemed to be fanny around the back until we were under enough pressure that Berra had to punt it long up the park, usually to the linesman and out of play. 

If Souttar and Halkett stay then we shouldn't need Berra, I'd much rather see one of the prospects in the youth team come through if need be. 

I don't think he was much of a captain on the pitch towards the last few months of his time here either before going on loan.

Letting Daniel Stendel know he's been sacked by reading about his replacement in the paper.

Using the wages he waived due to the Corona lockdown to pay for a guy to take over his job.

The Hearts Human Resources Team really are some boys. At least Danny doesn't seem too miffed about it...

He comes across really well in the article. Sounds like a decent, positive guy.

I agree, his little quip about his landlord in Edinburgh is not the usual bitter managerial chat.

I meant his manager profile has been taken off the site.

Fully expect he'll give an interview saying he had no idea he had been replaced until he read the news.

Colour me shocked that Ann Budge doesn't have the class to inform a manager she planned to replace about whats happening.

Hearts not telling Stendel we'd hired his replacement is, unfortunately, completely unsurprising. Treating people like shit has been a feature of the club for the last few years and it's very probably a large part of the reason we're where we are now.

That was poor, tbh - and now she's reported to be trying to woo leanne dempster - perish the thought!
