    A few moments of madness. But he was class other than that. So were Hanlon, McGinn and especially Macey.

    I can only remember one. First half where Boyce almost dispossessed him about 30 yards out. Other than that he was brilliant and one of our better players.

    I've never seen a player get so much scrutiny for "almost" making a mistake.

    Was given plenty of tests today and passed all the important ones with flying colours.

    He was often an influential ball player too, some of his forward passes were of the standard expected from midfielders. Easier said than done, particularly at Tynecastle.

    He was great and had the same amount of mad moments that Paul Hanlon did.

    Iíd expect every one of them to have the odd moment of madness in these modern day derby games.

    Definitely. Can't argue with that at all. Defenders were phenomenal today. Chuffed for them.

    Couldnít agree more. Clean sheet in a Derby at Tynecastle and there are folk complaining about the defence! Get a grip.

    I thought he played well. As did Hanlon and McGinn. Doig struggled a bit but wa still far from poor.

    Porto tripping over the ball then missing the ball when he tried to recover was a heart in mouth moment though. He actually recovered well in the end and that's all that matters.

    He was one of our stronger players today, just as usual. Had one hiccup, but it wasn't the end of the world. Terrific defender and great vision too!

    Back five did well today and Woodburn didnt fancy it much against Porto from early on.

  21. #20
    Almost got caught with Boyce and had one moment in the first half when he was too busy concentrating on GMS rather than clearing the ball.

    Thatís his only two mistakes of the game.

    Brilliant after that both defensively and on the ball. It doesnít always come
    off but he takes responsibility and never hides.

    I was actually going to start a thread tonight about our defensive performance. If that was St Johnstone people would be raving about how solid we were and how our back 3 never gave them a sniff.

    Itís a little reminder I feel that our back 3 are good and not as easily replaceable as some may think.

    Your right, comfortable on the ball, brave in possession and keen to build from the back instead of lumping it

    Pretty composed for the most part but always a few hairy moments.

    Largely a myth that about Ambrose in his time hereÖhe did have a few mad moments, but they were few and far between and his pace usually got him out of it . his performances were largely error freeÖ.

    Thought he was solid today and looked to find a pass every time. Even then a couple of lifted passes always had an intended target.

    Started the season really well hopefully it continues

    I think the intensity of games at Tynecastle, Ibrox and the likes really help Porto.

    Itís games at home to Killie, Livi etc that seem to produce a bit of slackness in his game.

    Heís definitely back on track in terms of his development as a CD.

    He's a tremendous central defender.

    Good in the air, strong in the challenge and superb with the ball at his feet. His passing out of defence is a huge plus point, confident and like any good player, always available and wanting to be on the ball.

    Thought Hibs looked really solid at the back today just giving away 1 really clear goal-scoring chance to GMS which produced that brilliant save from Macey.

    After that, Hearts never looked like scoring and we dealt really well with corners and cross balls which has been a problem of late. Credit to all the defence - particularly Hanlon and Porteous

    The debate on Porteous is a bit polarised though and I'm not sure how beneficial it is when people jump on others for calling out his mistakes.

    He's a local boy, a Hibs supporter and come through the ranks and everyone wants him to do well but if he's going to progress beyond Hibs (and he has the attributes) then he needs to mature and improve his decision-making. There were still signs of that rashness today (and against Livingston) and these would be punished in a better league. While I wouldn't want to take away his spirit I actually wonder if a move might be better for his own development where he's not playing for his home town team, he's got tougher competition and he needs to knuckle down and impress everyone.

    At Hibs he's first choice and unlikely to be dropped and can, therefore, get away with those mistakes and play up to the crowd with some adventurous football. I'm not sure that is good for his long-term development though.

    If you want to play football at the back, you need to take the odd risk or so, or thereís no point in having players like Ryan in our team
    Was a rock at the back, and started a lot of attacks. Maybe once in a while needs to find row Z with his clearances
    Ryanís becoming a real key player for Hibs
