    "There's no drama, no chaos, no turmoil," he said

    Cathro on 'STV New at Six' just now

    'There's an awful lot of people who want to see us fail right now'


    There are a lot of people who want Hearts to fail but unless all of these people somehow physically set foot on the pich to play against Hearts, WTF DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE ??. Are the goals against Hearts being scored by some 'Telekinetic-Force' emanating from a lot of people's bad thoughts ??
    "If there were no goal-posts and going toe-to-toe counted as wins and if we had drawn (therefore won) all the games in which we had lost and Dr Strange wasn't using his Multi-Dimensional Chi bending powers to alter the universe in which we are winning then we'd be, OK. So, yes, It's ok, no drama."

    I kind of think Cathro and Mcphee are acting as mindfulness coaches with a mantra of 'be strong' 'win' 'stand tall' 'onto the next game' etc etc etc. I can imagine them lighting incense and candles and getting the squad to chant along with them while Potter sits in his office picking the team.

    With the way he talks and the way his team plays, I'm not sure that he treats it like a competitive sport.

    He can be as technical as he wants but I genuinely didn't think he understands the game. He's not a manager.

    He thinks he can be a manager but behaves like the coach. He looks to have no man management skills and is just confusing the players making an already pretty poor squad look clueless.

    Please let them scrape a win tomorrow. A defeat could signal the end for him.

    Copied and pasted from a KB thread and yet again it illustrates the guy's inability to speak normally. A bit harsh to criticise someone's inadequacies but it's fair game because he is trying to give the impression that he is articulate, when in fact he is the opposite.


    Ian Cathro says there are people willing him to fail at Hearts as he assured supporters he shares their anger and frustration over recent results.

    Hearts have only won one of their last nine games and face Dundee on Saturday hoping to reverse a bad run of form.

    Results have been mixed since Cathro's appointment in December, with many questioning if he job was too big for someone stepping up to head coach for the first time.

    He said some people actively wanted him and the team to fail but it did not add to any pressure he feels.

    "I don't want to be the person who says whether that is fair or unfair," he said.

    "What I think is fair for me to say is I think just now there are more people than normal that are keen to see this club lose, or let's say not win.

    "We can all imagine what the factors are in that."

    He added: "I think what I'd say to back that up is that if they're choosing to do that, they're probably choosing the wrong people.

    "I sit here as a strong person very ready to deal with this to whatever extent or for as long as people choose.

    "Fine. No problem with that and no stress."

    Cathro said he felt anger at the team's position but only because he did not want to let down fans of the club.

    "[These critics] are also dealing with what is probably one of the most strong, powerful, passionate groups of supporters in Britain, when you look at the darker moments and how the supporters have rallied with everything the club needed," he said.

    "In relation to the incredible support that this club has, that's the area where I understand and share the disappointment and frustration for not having been able to allow them to look forward with excitement.

    "That's the bit that gives me anger and upset. The extra upset that throws some stones in my direction doesn't give me anything whatsoever. That just reminds me that we're strong and we're together."

    Though accepting the scrutiny that comes with a losing run, the head coach also insisted any talk of an unhappy camp was far off the mark and that there was no discord between players or coaching staff.

    "There's no drama, no chaos, no turmoil," he said.

    "None of these things that people like to create the sense that exists because we're not doing well.

    "The true thing is that we've had poor results. Everything else isn't true. There's no nonsense. All there is is poor results and that's the only thing that needs addressed.

    "We'll do that collectively and we'll do it with and for everybody that loves this club."

    That's about as blatant a desperate attempt at buttering up the fans with nice words about them as I've ever seen.

    He'd have been as well just saying 'please like me' and getting it over and done with. But Cathro never uses 1 word when 32 will do.

    Any post match interview yet?

  23. #82
    Former Hearts player Allan Preston on Radio Scotland: "That was absolute mediocrity from Hearts. They are dropping down the league like a hot brick and something has to change because the Hearts fans are getting short-changed. The club has gone backwards at a dramatic rate and the recruitment has been horrendous.Can Ian Cathro get it back? I don't think so. I think we are beyond the point of no return with Ian Cathro. This is a rip-up job and start again."

    and also from this afternoon's radio coverage.."
    This wasn't how it was supposed to end. Hearts players re-emerge from the dressing room wearing T-shirts thanking the fans for their support throughout the season. But barely 1,000 are left to acknowledge the players.Head coach Ian Cathro comes out after the players, takes a few tentative steps onto the pitch, gets booed, and thinks better of it."

    We really, really need this guy to stay in charge

    Another rambling incomprehensible post match interview on Sportsound today.
    Himself and players apparently came back out onto pitch after final whistle to thank the fans. Report was there was lucky to be 1000-1500 that stayed behind to say thanks and wave goodbye to the old stand.

    Highlights (?) of the interview:
    - I'm confident in my own ability.
    - Nothing will dent his confidence or change his way of working.
    - He is apparently going to work with the current players to make them better and stronger.

    Ian. A word of advice son. You cannot pollsh a turd!! No matter how hard you try.

    I don't know the answer but I bet his points total isn't much better, or in fact worse, than the bottom 6 teams

    That looks brilliant. Can't wait for the bookies to release the 'to finish bottom 6' odds for next season. There's a killing to made betting on Hearts.
