Why are you making this about Porteous ?

Souttar isn't good enough for Scotland.

You're the one quoting embarrassment from the last decade.

2012 and 2014 ring any bells?

Thankfully it's Steve Clarke who will decide if a fit Souttar is good enough.

Listen to Hugh Keevins etc on him mate.

Does Hugh Keevins = the entire Scottish media?

Most folk I’ve seen haven’t really praised him or slated him, just argued that it’s hard to judge someone who’s been so badly let down by his bosses.

He might have been a shite manager for Celtic with everything in his favour, let’s be fair.

People listen to Keevins?

Honestly don't think I've heard his voice for maybe a decade.

Fair enough mate. The guy needs to be judged on his signings and given time to implement his tactics and strategy.

Indeed. And thankfully that means he won't be anywhere near the national team.

You've lost me here m8.

I suspect Steve Clarke agrees with me though.

Enjoy your night.

Get it bent right up you Glasgow Celtic, and your nasty glory hunting bigot fans. 

 

 

The latter part of your sentence could be applicable to your own team.

....and we'll still pish ourselves laughing about 2012 and 2014.

Of course he will, they let Lennon hang about til the damage was done. 

Probably because Lennon never said a bad word about them

He would happily have a pop at the fans and players though.

You think that tops our amusement last year?Someone told me earlier that Hearts are the most relegated team in the top division, I'm not sure though but you boys certainly like the seaside.

Just back  in from the game and I've read the thread

Thank you all for your contributions

My observations follow

The first 8 minutes: I was thinking "This looks like being a proper contest, we might well get something out of it" 

The following 46 minutes. We did to celtic what teams kept doing to us last season. Organised Defensively, shut everything down, left Celtic passing along the back, and taking speculative shots from range, Celtic had most of the possession and most of the  chances  but  when we broke the few chances we did have looked more dangerous.  Like Hearts last season it was going to take something special from an individual to make the  break through  dam and it eventually came.

Rest of the match
Hearts were a bit slow at first to  adapt to the change from defending a lead to trying to gain one while obviously Celtic were continuing in the same mode and the next few minutes were Celtic's best at that point  I'd have bitten your hand off for a draw but soon we'd clawed our way back into  contention. 

Ginnelly and GMS had run their socks off and replacing them injected  fresh  pace and Haring meant that  we were competing in midfield again and  ultimately Gnanduilet was the other aerial threat that took focus of John Souttar at the end

Beni Baningime just makes everything better and his  work rate and  commitment  were  immense,  which are the  two things the Hearts support value most. and he injects youthful energy into  what was one of the oldest Hearts squads in years. I  predict that most Hearts Supporters will have learnt to pronounce his name perfectly by September.

His announcement as man of the match was greeted with  universal murmurings of approval from around where I was sitting although that was before Craig Gordon's two big saves in time added  on which meant that there was a valid question  to be asked . 

Had Celtic snatched a point at the end there it would be hard to portray that as a hard luck story but given the we lost a cup final to them on penalties they can hardly begrudge fortune smiling  on Gorgie tonight

In conclusion

Not every  game  this  season is  going to  work out that well and it's daft to read to much  into one result but I think it's safe to say

We're back baby... We're back

Echoes of the Hibs semi last year in Robbie making changes that changed the game when we were on the back foot, and we went on to get the result.

Fair play to him.
