    Livingston Man of the Match

    Went for Donnelly, was quite impressed when he was in midfield, (not so much at left back though). Gillespie, Tait, Scott and of course Turnbull all played well, albeit in a glorified friendly.

    Dundee Man of the Match

    The obvious choice is Turnbull, and for a change I'm going with the obvious. Ariyibi, Campbell and Gillespie all worthy of mention though.

    Craig Thomson the referee?

    St Johnstone Man of the Match

    Oops, and I hadn't even had a drink, my apologies to Mr Turnbull.

    St Johnstone Man of the Match

    The first two substitutions changed the flow of the game and I might have voted for Frear if he had scored that one on one at 2-0. Hastie Turnbull is a class act and his finish was sumptuous. I've gone for Gillespie though, if he hadn't saved the penalty it would have been a totally different game.
  6. If Frear had scored that it would have been a goal of the season contender for me.

    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    There is still a chance that Celtic could win the league at Fir Park without even being there, it is unlikely, but Ugly twin blue have to play Killie and Hearts at home either side of the next bigotfest at Parkhead, which means they could come to the Citadel needing a win to keep the League alive. Oh and yes, we do want to finish top six, fun though it would be to potentially relegate Hamilton / Dundee / St. Mirren, I'd rather have the cash thanks.

    Celtic Man of the Match

    Normally I would only vote in games I attend, But today I'm going for James Scott

    Turnbull = McAllister, fair enough, but Hastie = Mauchlen, I'm not sure about that one

    Heart of Midlothian Man of the Match

    We were saying that at the game, his form has been crucial to our six game run, rarely the best player on the park, but never the worst, a very consistent performer.

    A wee story on the BBC about Turnbull. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47272296 Contains this gem, courtesy of Neill McCann: Turnbull was getting hounded at the start of this winning run by fans because he was putting his foot on the ball and it was a bit different. But Stevie was brave enough to let him do it. McCann is even more clueless as a pundit than he was as a manager.

    Heart of Midlothian Man of the Match

    I swithered between Aldred and Turnbull, I went with Turnbull in the end but there was barely a Rizla paper between them. Dunne's match up with that Greco-Roman wrestler Hearts had was entertaining too.
  13. Just home and I haven't stopped laughing at the winner yet. It was a very enjoyable way to spend the early afternoon and even if the game had finished 1-1, I wouldn't have had too many complaints. I thought on balance we just shaded it but I would imagine most Hearts fans think the same, We didn't have as much control of the middle of the park as we have had in the last few games, possibly because Gorrin's yellow card forced him to hang back slightly, but we still managed to create the better chances and if any of the three or four good chances we had in the first 25 minutes of the second half had gone in it could have been a different story.

    Scored their second in a 2-0 win. Goals also for Dylan Mackin, Ross Forbes and Dom Thomas. Barry McGuire was sent off.

    Lambert didn't do tap-ins either, I have vague memories of a beauty v St Johnstone on a cold mid-week evening. Found it!
