    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.

    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.
  7. 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!

    Livingston Man of the Match

    Hastie, Ariyibi (first half) make us so much more attractive to watch than pre-Christmas and Main's effort added to his cool finish deserves a mention; but I voted for Aldred; I thought he was immense today.

    You do realise that Al B's question was about Burrows and Not Robinson?

    Just had a chance to sit down and watch it this evening, I'll admit to having a wee tear in my eye on a couple of occasions ( and a big tear at the Cooper, O'Donnell, Dolan and McGrillen section), interesting watch and brought back some great memories. A shame there was no contribution from Maxwell, Paterson, Arnott and, of course, McLean, plus an interview with big Softie would have been quite enlightening. That plus I know the Celtic fan with the tattooed arse, can't wait till I see him again to wind him up.

    Won the header at a set piece to set up the winner too.

    Games to the split & premiership survival

    I always have 38 points in my mind as our first target. I had a quick look back at the recent final league tables, and since the introduction of the play offs, 38 points has been good enough for tenth or better, although St. Mirren did finish 11th with 41 points the year before they were introduced. That said, I suspect that at least one of the current bottom three won't reach 30 points this year and 38 points will be more than enough for safety.

    Hamilton Man of the Match

    I don't normally vote when I don't attend, but having watched the full 90 minutes on Alba, I decided to break the normal rule. Frear for me, looked like the player we all hoped he would be when he first played. Honourable mentions for Aldred, Grimshaw and Turnbull.
