That goal gets closer to their box every time I watch it Warnock

At the time it felt like he hit it from well inside our half Laugh

The absolute scenes when it went in. Was near the back of the top deck and was about 8 rows from where I started.

We have a far better striker in Boyce. About time we started to supply him properly

How about Boyce starts playing properly then we can say he’s better than Nisbet. His performances generally are a joke and people are debs to not whether our man Wighton should be starting ahead of him next week.

Time he pulls his socks up and shows what you are suggesting. Far better than Nisbet is a load of pish.

Kind of agree with this tbh. Boyce is clearly a good striker but he’s had a few chances created for him over the last two weeks but can’t find the net, apart from that penalty.

He’ll get there though. Encouraging how much he can create for himself too though. Manages to find that little bit of space in the box that others struggle to find.

He’ll score on Saturday jjay

Boyce does a lot of decent work in linking the play up, he just needs more players up with him from midfield more often, the goals will come eventually.

Boyce is a good striker but like many good strikers who come to hearts they seem to forget how to score when they arrive.

He is on the verge of becoming my new scapegoat if he doesn't score this weekend Monty Smug

If he scores I will announce him the new Robbo Monty Smug

Fine lines Monty Smug

Boyce Wighton

Happy with that team but concerned about the lack of width. Hibs game plan will be to get the ball to Boyle pretty much every time, so the right and left backs will need as much support as possible from whatever wingers will play. I don't know what the story with Roberts was at the weekend (assumed he is/was injured?) so I'm predicting that Frear will start.

I'd go a 4-5-1. Frear and Roberts as the wide men (assuming Roberts is fit and Ginelly isn't). The back four and keeper pick themselves. The two wide men being expected to graft and back up Boyce up front as well as supporting the defence. The three in the middle can be any combination of Halliday, Haring, Irving, Cochrane or Lee. Those three can be expected to flood the midfield and overrun it to dictate play. If need be you could put Walker in there to play off Boyce and given him more support and play more of a 4-2-3-1. Or even Naismith to play that role.

Boyce has 50 goals in the top flight in Scotland along with a decent record at Burton.  Nisbet has 7 top flight goals. 

Boyce has been disappointing so far but to say Nisbet is a better player is just stupid in my opinion. 

If Nisbet keeps up the scoring record he has just now then maybe we can compare them in a couple of seasons.

I don’t think anyone really cares about their overall career record, we’re only interested in which of them is most likely to score on Saturday. Up to Boyce to up his game and deliver.

He’s a better player right now at this moment and that’s what matters.

What Boyce did before hearts is irrelevant, Nisbet is scoring every week and Boyce hasn’t been able to.

Every week apart from the week they played Dundee Utd, Aberdeen, Celtic, Motherwell, St Johnstone and Ross County?

Wee bit hyperbole to make a point Jezza


If you literally take it as he’s 7 goals in 10 appearances in the league then I don’t see how that changes anything.

Just silly to suggest we have the better option upfront just now.

If we'd signed him he'd have scored 4 in 25+ games like every other hearts striker.
