‘It wasn’t pretty, but it’s winning that matters’
We asked for your thoughts after Hearts made it four Premiership wins in a row for the first time since 2018 with victory at Rugby Park.
David: Hard work watching Hearts. Not a lot of football but results are what matters. Without Shankland, likely not in top six. Work in progress. Steven Naismith has given confidence to the team, which they have been lacking,
Mark: The shift to 5-3-2 is clearly something the players prefer after years of it under Robbie Neilson. Much more solid, fluid and dangerous going forward. Kyle Rowles looking like the World Cup star we saw in Qatar.
Ian: Three points was the most important thing with the fixtures we have coming up. But if you want entertainment, don’t watch Hearts. I still want a change in management with someone outside the club coming in with fresh ideas. 15,000 season tickets and a 7,000 waiting list will turn into 7,000 tickets and no waiting list with more of these performances.
David: It’s hard to argue with four wins in a row and poor playing conditions. Big plus is a solid defence. Big minus is the “goals for” column – one of the worst in the league. Give Shankland some help please! A real test of progress will be against Rangers on Wednesday – three points would be great and one point the absolute minimum.
Murray: Four wins on the bounce is not to be sniffed at any level and thought it is not pretty at times. Surely winning football is all that matters.News Related
