  1. Transfer Talk, Rumours and Speculation

    It will be a change to have a season where our worry is a shortage of defensive midfielders, rather than a surplus... In truth we're probably one player light in the 6/8 positions, and there are plenty of possibilities, including retaining Bratts. I'd still worry more about having enough talent to play at 10. Perhaps Osama might like a return as a 6? He's getting no game time in Saudi.

    No worries, if I was at all comfortable with the blue in principle I think I might even agree, it may be the least worst blue kit we've had. It's what the blue represents in terms of fan voice and club heritage which troubles me. I accept it doesn't trouble everyone!!
  3. Replica kits

    Clear enough there's little demand! Pinning my hopes on the third kit and those red training tops we've seen so much of. The bigger issue is a fan voice. The club too often do what they want, and there's little organised way of letting them know what we want, and what really hacks us off. Sometimes they seem to have started listening, but the new kits have made me question that a little. This is my club regardless.
  4. Denis Genreau

    Agreed JW. Seems to be a bright young bloke. His year abroad will have been really useful, and we rated him before he left. He's as good for the squad as a decent new signing. Very pleased he's back with us.
  5. Replica kits

    This is a bit of thinking out loud, but it'll maybe spark a constructive discussion. It's pretty clear to me that by degrees our former identity and colours are being erased. I've got a fair few red and white City tops, but only one Heart era one. And I have no Heart era merch such as scarves, hats etc. It's possible to buy replica historic kits for many clubs, and indeed some clubs themselves market them. I suppose what I'm getting to is exploring interest in, and the practicalities of, making a replica Heart era kit, and or something like a scarf. So chucking it out there. Thoughts?

    Expect him to be playing in another variation of baby blue next season.
  7. 19/20 Puma Kits

    I'll be happy to see a 10th anniversary red and white kit, if that what happens, but I'm not happy with the sly demotion from second to third kit, which apparently happened last season without us being told. CFG haven't changed the colours of clubs they have more recently bought into, and it was a huge misstep to change ours. It's not going to get any less a problem for me however many years they keep putting us in baby blue. It isn't a small point, that is the point. They still don't get how much the original colours matter to many of the original fans.

    Again? So basically the club had already demoted red and white last season? Talk about tin eared...
  9. 19/20 Puma Kits

    Better had be. The only one worth having.
  10. 19/20 Puma Kits

    Indeed. Pissed with the kits. Won't be spending my hard earned on either.
  11. 19/20 Puma Kits

    After all the good work, this could put a lot of us offside.
  12. Luke Brattan

    It was pros and cons with Bratts. You'd get half a dozen belters a year, some games when his eye was in and he'd make killer passes, but all too often he was the nexus of the slow transition forward that frequently killed our attacking potential. He wasn't the only one, but for a midfielder carrying an attacking role, he all too often didn't.

    He's a stealth tip rat.

    I'll get my coat.

    No surprise once we signed Brillante.
