One Csaba Laslzo!!

April 22nd, 2009 by hurtafly

As soon as I had the time I wanted to get on here and talk up my new main man Csaba Laszlo. I want to stress before I go on that I was not motivated by the recent PFA Scotland Manager of the Year nominations, I would have written most of what follows in any [...]

Where the transfer window leaves us

February 6th, 2009 by hurtafly

Well I suppose it could have been worse.  Club owner Vladimir Romanov made a rare appearance by jetting into town to sell off Christophe Berra to Wolves, and took in the defeat to Hamilton for his troubles.  Unfortunately, though unsurprisingly, no replacement was brought in for Berra – unless you count 17-year-old Marius Zuvokas – [...]

Hamilton 2 Hearts 0

February 2nd, 2009 by hurtafly

On Saturday the decisions definitely didn’t go our way.  The most crucial of these was when referee Eddie Smith awarded a very soft penalty to Hamilton early in the second half, which allowed Simon Mensing to give Accies a 2-0 lead and effectively kill the game.  Newly promoted captain Robbie Neilson was adjudged to have [...]

Berra on his way

January 31st, 2009 by hurtafly

Hearts captain Christophe Berra has been given permission to talk to Wolves and will travel to Molineux this morning, which means the Scotland international may already have played his last game for the Jambos.

Berra challenged by Fletcher in the Edinburgh derby earlier this month

Berra, a product of the Hearts youth academy, made his debut as [...]

Hamilton v Hearts preview

January 31st, 2009 by hurtafly

Almost every side in the SPL has had an extended run of form at one point or another this season and currently it is the turn of Hamilton who have won five of their last six matches.  Hearts travel to New Douglas Park tomorrow to take on a side who, since their 7-1 defeat at [...]

Hearts 3 Inverness Caledonian Thistle 2

January 27th, 2009 by hurtafly

It has been a while since I last wrote and since then my beloved club have managed to consistently hang around in the top half of the table.  We threatened to close in on the top two after taking four points from back-to-back matches against either half of the Old Firm towards the end of [...]

If you have nice football, you can die

September 21st, 2008 by hurtafly

Hearts 1 Inverness 0
“Good football is nothing, nice football is nothing, success is the key”, said Csaba Laszlo in Friday’s pre-match press conference, and that pretty much sums up the ninety minutes. In fact, they could easily be mistaken for words spoken after the match.
A seventh minute goal perhaps suggested that Hearts would go on [...]

It was always going to happen

September 15th, 2008 by hurtafly

Falkirk 2 Hearts 1
Before Saturday’s match Falkirk were bottom of the league with no points. In fact they were the only team in the four Scottish divisions not to have chalked up any points so far. So with Hearts being Hearts, we allowed them their first win and points of the season.

Despite our impressive start, [...]

Obua, Driver and Cesnauskis all out

September 12th, 2008 by hurtafly

Hearts have been dealt a triple injury blow ahead of their visit to the Falkirk Stadium. The exclusion of Andy Driver is more precautionary than anything else and he should be fit to face Inverness next week. Deividas Cesnauskis and David Obua have returned from international duty with muscle complaints, with Hearts physios fearing that [...]

Falkirk v Hearts preview

September 12th, 2008 by hurtafly

After a good start to the season, Hearts travel to the Falkirk Stadium tomorrow. With Rangers entertaining Kilmarnock at Ibrox tomorrow, we know a win would take us into the top two with one of our own trips to Ibrox already out of the way.
The international break came at a bad time for Csaba Laszlo, [...]
