Can we win 3 games on the bounce for the first time since Christmas 2018? Crowe

The style Stendel has found now is perfect for the run in. Pragmatic but pressing at the right times as a unit. Ideal for this league with the players we have. Not concerned about leaking 2/3 goals a game now and confident we can outscore the opposition.

Think this will be a big crowd and we'll win 3-0. I'd go with the same 11 but swap Naisy for Moore.

This is a different kind of challenge. A game we are expecting to win. We have fucked so many of these games up this season, but if we win this one, the rest of the season could be very enjoyable.

Don't even want to think about losing it. Eek

Naismith in for Moore, Washington to the left, naisy behind Boycey with Flair on the right. The rest picks itself.

Moore has set up 2 in 2 and been a big player for us in the last couple games. Would be harsh to drop him.

He was subbed with a knock so expecting him to be rested.

It would as tbqh Naisy wasn't particularly great when he did come on. Hope Moore overcomes whatever knock he picked up; his energy has been a big part of our very recent approach to the game.

Will be a hard game. Just have to give it the same effort levels as the past couple games.

Yeah just due to the tight hamstring rather than anything else.

Prefer Washington up top to stretch the game tbh but if Moore's out it makes sense. Walker didn't show enough when he came on to show that he would be able to do the same job as Moore.

Really need to get another win at home to really keep the momentum going for the big game next week against St Mirren.

Need to play Moore instead of Naismith if available. Players had time to breathe as no one was shouting in their faces.

Oh aye good point forgot he came off with an injury.

Really impressed by him recently, I’ll admit I thought he was never going to make it but he’s really stepped up last couple games. A lot of confidence about him, I wonder if that comes from the manager?

He won’t have been fazed by the atmosphere last night thanks to his extensive experience playing at Ibrox and Celtic Park Levein

If you'd drop Moore you are crazy. He is carrying out Stendel's orders perfectly off the ball and has the required engine to do it for a good 70-80 minutes.

Motherwell have been on a terrible run of form, 3-0 to the Gorgie.

Surely the confidence is now soaring. The reactions to last night, the performances by many of the players, a goal for Washington and huge contributions by the team collectively we have to be in our best place in a long time. You get the impression we are locked in and that at last we can expect some consistency. Hopefully everyone who can make it goes on Saturday and gets right behind the team and Stendel as when you see the support last night coupled with that spirit and desire it shows what Hearts can be like as a club. The position we are in is just incredible when you understand our potential.

There was a lot of clueless chat about how Robinson is a diddy etc. They are 23 points better off than us so we need to treat this with the same importance as the derby as they are better than Hibs.

Not got a clue how it will go. Catiously optimistic we've turned a corner but thought that after we beat Rangers the first time and we were still absolutely mince.

I think dropping moon chin for Zlamal has been massive to be fair. We'd probably be about 10th by now if that cunt had of been papped about 2 months prior.
