Do we think it can happen?

I keep thinking no. But then I watch gutless performances like that and I genuinely don't know where our next win comes from.

How does Stendel fix this?

Let our new manager bring in his own staff, clear the clowns out from the previous regime, pay off 5-6 players in January, bring our loan players back and let Stendel bring in his own players. Currently player recruitment is run by Austin MacPhee, the blagger.

The set up is so dysfunctional. A recipe for disaster.

Relegation is a very real possibility.

It just looks like the whole team needs gutted.

I said in the match thread, this is one of the worst Hearts teams I've ever seen. Maybe the worst.

Some good individual players in the squad obviously, but the most unbalanced team I think I've ever seen.

Levein and his crew have a lot to answer for. They have really fucked this club up.

Currently second bottom, only off bottom itself on goal difference, can't buy a win, can't score a goal, our own players have been in the press saying we're in a relegation battle.

It's very much a possibility. But I'm sure some of the dafties will be along shortly to tell us otherwise.

Both still have the ear of the owner and sharing sporting director duties

Worst team in the country over the past 14 months. That's a fact 

Of course it can happen.  We're sleepwalking into relegation

As things stand we're a stick on, and those responsible are still lurking about the club Zlat

For me realistically there are now 4 teams that could be relegated this season; us, Hamilton, St Mirren and St Johnstone. I think Ross County and Livingston will be fine.

So far against those 4 teams we've taken the following:

Hearts 2 Hamilton 2

St Mirren 0 Hearts 0
Hearts 5 St Mirren 2

St Johnstone 1 Hearts 0
Hearts 0 St Johnstone 1

On today's evidence there is no reason to believe St Johnstone will do poorer than us and they have an experienced manager who will have his team grind out results. Next weeks game at Hamilton is a must not lose or we will almost definitely be bottom going into the new year. All of these teams have taken more SPL points over the last year. We are in massive trouble.

The only positive I can glean from this is that Stendel will have learned where we are weak...which is pretty much everywhere. Monty Ooh

I'm hoping he's learned MacLean, Clare and Walker are utterly useless and that Berra should be residing at the Dunlivin retirement home.

We're sleepwalking into fuck all, mate.

It's glaringly obvious.

It’s not sleepwalking anymore, it was sleepwalking at the end of last season, now it’s a full on crisis. 

I have faith that Stendel can sort it out given the winter break and the chance to empty the impostors on and off the pitch.

Shades of Hibs in 2013/14 with this lot.

That Hibs team wasn't the worst in the league but they hit a rotten patch of form and just couldn't break the habit of losing and accumulated fewer points than our youths over the course of that season.

There's time to fix this but serious surgery needs to be performed on this squad in January.

This Hearts team is the worst in the league. Shite player for player.

Do you know that since the Hibs game at the end of September we have played 11 SPL games. If you take the St Mirren home game out of the equation (we somehow scored 5 goals) then we have scored the following in the other 10 matches:

0 goals in 8 matches

1 goal in 2 matches

We have scored TWO GOALS in those 10 SPL matches claiming 4 pts (two scoreless draws, two 1-1 draws and 6 defeats).

We have Celtic, Hibs and Aberdeen and a 6 pointer at Hamilton before the break  FuckMe

I genuinely believe that Stendel can turn this around, for once the phrase “he needs a transfer window” is actually true.

We’ve no pace middle to front and our goalkeeping options are fucking horrendous, Levein has wasted a fortune and has signed utter dross.

We’ve a full squad with no balance at all and players stealing a wage.
