Less than 30 seconds were on the clock when the commentator commented on Tynecastle being one of the "liveliest stadiums in Northern Europe". You have to laugh. The myth is growing so many arms and legs that they will soon just declare it the best atmosphere in the entire universe at any sport. Best in Northern Europe [emoji23][emoji85] Meanwhile you could literally hear a pin drop for the entirety of the first 25 minutes thus far.

Fair enough but I disagree. Doesn't matter the competition. We easily beat SPL teams last year and thus proved we are better than them. Results prove this?

Forget the league, I'm talking about matches against SPL. If you honestly think Hamilton, Kilmarnock, Partick etc are better than us then I completely disagree.

Cathro's changed them into a poor side

He's not got the respect of the players. I saw players react to him after the Partick game which made me instantly realise he'll fail. Scottish football, and footballers, are not ready for any kind of innovative change. It's all to do with perception. Admittedly his media interviews are both strange and awful - but he was on a hiding to nothing accepting a job in this country so young. It wasn't a brave appointment, it was foolish and didn't consider the parochial Scottish football management and media landscape.

What's made me laugh more is the SFA wanted to appoint McPhee - he must do a hell of a lot through the week because he quite literally offers nothing whilst in the bench during a game. They are two little boys lost in my opinion. Cathro, if he was a good coach, would have chosen an experienced coach as a No 2 - he'll fail spectacularly however because not even the young players respect him (and that's first hand knowledge).

Hearts are awful. Paterson was a mini 'saviour' in home games, he's out. Their signing policy is horrific when you look at who they've signed and what impact they've had - considering budgets. All points to Craig Levein pulling the strings, and long may that continue - because he's clueless.

I'm at Tynie regularly (sadly) - not one player looks happy to be there. It's a dreadful atmosphere amongst the players. At Hibs (again I see close hand now and again) it's a reversal - players look like mates and proper team mates. Genuine feel good factor regardless.

Don Cowie is their Brian Kerr too - minus a Derby winner !

I saw about 5 mins of the Jams game last night (the goal part).
One thing that was strikingly obvious was the pace of the game. We play at Championship pace which is why we struggle to beat Championship sides. We have to get used to upping the tempo or we'll continue to struggle if or when we go up.

We play at Championship pace, because we've been in this league for too long .......... we simply are, agree or not, a Championship club. Mind you, that's no reason for not beating every other Championship club. We have to adopt a real Premiership attitude and go into every game with a need and desire to win. That's dead easy for us to say, the players have to believe it and put it into operation.

How many premiership sides have beaten us over the past two years? Only Ross County I think (and they were lucky). Whereas we've beaten ICT, Dundee Utd (last season), Aberdeen, St Johnstone and, of course, Them. We struggle in the Championship because we try to play football against the same 9 negative teams over and over again. With cup games on top we play some of those teams 5 or 6 times in a season.

I keep reading comments (wind-ups) in the Scotsman re 'Only the Championship', 'Diddy League' and other crap of a similar nature. I'm looking at the Premier table now, and what I see is 1 team 19 pts in front (with a game in hand) of their nearest challenger, and the team in 4th (that's you yams) 27 pts behind, again with the extra game...before the New Year!!! The top half of the Championship could easily compete with the also rans in the 'big' league.

Anyone else watching Liverpool v Man City? It's another attractive fixture but so far the game has not lived up to expectations. Liverpool winning 1-0 at present and at this stage seem happy to sit in and defend their lead.

I don't dispute the fact that we have the potential to up the pace and have done in the past. My point is, we should be doing it every week.
