    Can anyone remember what reason was given for rangers not taking Rangers place in Europe THAT season?

    "then the idea of Hearts being big and physical throughout is nonsense."

    I don't  remember saying that.

     

    I am a  Hearts fan and have been a season ticket holder at Tynie for over 20 years.

    So I have watched both periods of Levein's management and one thing is for sure if Levein has the choice between a six foot plus player or someone of average height or below I think he tends to go for the taller player. There are of course exceptions

    Yes, you're right about Hickey, but a cynic might also suggest that the only way he got a game in the first place was because Hearts have been unable to fill this position since Takis Fyssas left and have not been able to find a decent left back (tall or small). (I don't agree with that, by the way) He has had two excellent games though 

    There are a couple of Dundee Utd supporters in my office. When Levein was manager of DU they used to point out that Levein's signings tended to be giants. (Tended to be, not always).

    And a running joke is that Messi would never have made it in Scottish football because he was ‘far too small’.

    —————————————————————————————————————-

    Well, if Craig Levein was manager he certainly wouldn't be getting a game

    You've come up with a few beauties in your time on here, John.

    Add that one to the list

    Not exactly Tiny Wharton refereeing from the half way line, but has anyone else noticed what an unfit or lazy sod John Beaton is.

    Ive noticed a couple of times at Tynie this season that he only patrols 30 metres either side of the halfway line.

    Watching the game on TV yesterday, again he seems to be completely averse to going within 30 metres of any goal.
