Meant to add this earlier when I heard it.

They were talking about the Hearts/Auchinleck game tomorrow and said the usual pish about how the money will be great for Auchinleck and will keep them going for years (as if their business model is to hope they get all the way to the 5th round so that they can draw a team like Hearts away).

Anyway, someone (can't mind who) was talking about how the crowd at Tynecastle tomorrow will be circa 16k. 

Comments like that confirm that the pundits they employ really have no clue about football. They are incompetent lazy shite.

From a Forfar POV, they thought Bollan getting the punt last season was ridiculous as he had got us up the previous season.  If they had even bothered to either look at the current run of form at the time or even asked a couple of regulars that turn up at Station Park, it would have been blatantly obvious why he had to go.

It's a recurring theme with Scottish football pundits. 

Small clubs who gain promotion or stave off relegation with a manager should be rewarding him with a statue outside their ground according to them. 

It's like these clubs aren't allowed to sack anyone because they did one good thing so now anything shite after that can be disregarded.  They stop short of saying (but are clearly thinking it) 'how fucking dare you sack him, look what he did for your pish wee club nobody cares about. You should be lucky any cunt wants to manage you and pipe down'.

I would have thought that with Celtic 4-0 up and dominant, they’d have switched to Hearts v Auchinleck at 3pm instead of joining it 20 minutes or so in.

How naive I am.

Listen fannybaws, he also said it later, and was corrected by Alan Preston......who isnt exactly a Hibs lover.

...or blessed with much intelligence, like yourself. It's probably why he also took the face value approach you have, rather than the intent of the comments as I have. OK Fudflaps.

16k wasn't far off to be fair

I've noticed before, in a similar vein, how they go through periods where they become extremely big on one person and fight their corner constantly.  There were pundits who couldn't understand why Barry Ferguson wasn't in the running for the Rangers job, despite being mediocre at best at Clyde.  There were calls for Paul Hartley to get the Hearts job - *after* the debacle he ran into as Dundee manager.  It's just so cliquey.  By the same token, they couldn't understand why John Hughes got the boot at Caley Thistle and Jim McIntyre got it at Ross County, despite the reason being pretty well known ("But but but...they won cups!").

It's because guys like Hartley and Hughes are friends with these pundits/ex-pros.  They want and need their mate in work.  It's very cliquey and jobs-for-the-boys like you say.

The constant, spine-curling cringiness of Chick Young begging Kilmarnock to give the job full time to Lee McCulloch was soul destroying.

Now, LM had done a decent job as caretaker IIRC, and to be fair to him he was mightily embarrassed by it, but it was so poorly done.

Turns out the KFC board were right to be wary! I wonder if the pitch is still drawn on the dressing room floor...

Same guy who wanted Jim Duffy for Scotland? He really is a wee fanny.

The wanking over teams and managers etc is a constant theme. It was Goodwin and Alloa a few weeks ago. Whilst both Goodwin and Alloa deserve a fair bit of credit as they look to take a relegation battle down to the wire, its always way over the top. Always like its some hot take that they are revealing to their hitherto unaware listeners that Jim Goodwin has his team doing ok....

Naw, ya wee fanny. We all know that already.

In a similar vein, they pretty much interviewed Kenny Sheils for the Motherwell job live on air a couple of seasons ago. It was a very weird listen.

They just assumed that the crowd would be that large due to what Hearts average for league games.

I was surprised at how big the crowd was, especially since in the last round against Livingston the crowd was down by a few thousand.

They simply assume that certain clubs get big crowds in all their games.

This. Algarve golf courses just aren't the same without the whole team.

I was quite surprised the attendance was 11,000 in the previous round given the notoriously poor following Livingston bring, plus the fact it was on TV.

Based on that, I'd have guessed about 13,000 for Sunday due to the bigger away crowd, novelty factor, later round and no TV.

Craig Levein was happy with the 15,000, anyway.

I’ve enjoyed the education that apparently it’s normal for goalkeepers to do this “to protect themselves” and “Greegsy” is alright really.
