After reaching the giddy heights of seventh place for 24 hours, Hearts conspired to lose at Fir Park, meaning a drop straight back down to eighth.


Their obsession with us seems to have no bounds!

It was worth it to drop a place today. Moments like that winner- you canít put a price on.

Hardly, This means Motherwell run is now 5 games?
They are getting up some momentum just now, and results like that will give them even more!!!

If Hibs could do with Hearts getting a point at Aberdeen if we're after Europe or better, then by all means I'll be quite supportive of Naismith's rabid nutcase stylings.

I'm not that up for craving favours off Hearts to hold on to seventh place.

Yet some folk just donít see the significance. A momentís pleasure but a longer term hurdle.

If we get top 6 because everyone else is crap we wouldn't be doing ourselves any favours. If we get it because we are improving and we rediscover that steel and perform in the crucial games then that is more like it.

If we improve and are performing well then I will be happy. If we beat Dundee and win in Perth then we are doing all we can. If we get those results but Motherwell also find results against Killie and Celtic then fair play to them.

Improvement and winning is important. Let's just do that and see where it takes us.

Not overly bothered. Look at Motherwells next 2 games - Celtic away & Kilmarnock away

Very likely they will get 0 points and we'll at least get a point against Dundee.

A lot of folk are writing off our chances of being above Hearts again this season. Theres only 8 points in it! I'm not writing anything off just yet. They are pretty pish especially away from home.

I just canít agree with your logic. The position in the league we attain is more important than the manner we achieve it. For starts, a top six finish gives us 5 games against better opposition and bigger crowds and more money. Secondly, the higher we finish the more we get in prize money. Iíll be delighted if our nearest opponents donít perform and let us climb ahead. To hell with altruism.

Yeah, let's not get ideas above our station. What's that old saying, no better than we ought to be.

We can only win our own games. 3 points and a shutout is all that matters for us. If we keep doing that, what Motherwell and St J's do won't matter.

Position in the league is a short term measure. It is a few extra quid.

We've got a new manager trying to get his ideas across. That that happens successfully is important for the longer term. Improve and see where we go.

I can't agree with you. It's all about hibs results for me.

I think weíre talking at cross purposes here. I agree itís all about Hibs results, but I donít agree that we accept our lot because others have performed better. I just want them to perform poorly to let us draw ahead.

That's all its all about, but our next game against Dundee, they are now on 3 wins in a row!
We could do with them falling on Friday!
We have a good run of games for Heckingbottom to bed in with 2 games against bottom clubs.
I think we will need at least 15 points from the last 21 to secure top 6, but other clubs need to have a really bad run!!!!

Losing to Motherwell in that gutless performance looks to have knackered the season completely unfortunately. New manager HC with new ideas and massive spark of optimism but top six from being in contention for second last year will be tough and a crap season.

Roll on next.

I cant get my head around anybody not wanting a motherwell win . Forget the fact that its Hearts and i want them to lose any game they play in and focus on the fact that it brings the middle of the league tighter. If we do manage to put some form together then 5th is achievable imo . Results went in our favour this weekend and we should be looking at top six and pushing for 5th spot. Dont get folk having a semi because motherwell have gone above us by a point

Precisely.

Motherwell are in our hands. We still have to play them at ER where weíll most likely beat them. They also have harder fixtures overall.

A wee run and the Jambos could be in our sights still.... we can at least get close.

That goal was hilarious. The thought of Levein and all the Hearts fans being sick to their stomachs is fantastic. I thought once they had all their Ďstarsí back theyíd be almost unbeatable ....
