One of dirtiest teams I can recall in all my time. Totally ruthless with  a with a win at all costs attitude.

Walter Kidd, Brian Whittaker, Gary Mackay, Kenny Black etc.

Then add in cheating wee c*nts like Colquhoun and Robertson.....

Add Henry Smith to that list as well.

I do have some fond memories though of Kirkie getting stuck in, he had brilliant battles with Walter Kidd and never backed off.

I can't believe you left Wayne Foster and Scott Crabbe off that list.......

Although to be fair, you probably just lost track of the number of odious [email protected] that played for Hearts then. :mad:

Again, being fair, I’m just going to put these names here and say nothing

Miller. McVie. McLaren

They were honest dirty barstewards,   whereas hearts were full of devious dirty barstewards

That team just brings back nightmares of 1987 Scottish cup quarter final replay at fir park in front of 15,000 and watching John Gardiner making a Jim Delahunt of their goal

Liam Donelly scored on his debut for Kilmarnock last night in the league cup against Partick Thistle, finished 1-1 though, Partick won on penalties.

Can remember going to Tynecastle round about then and all our buses gave out red cards to flash at Walter Kidd during the game .

Nothing wrong with that. Teams that are successful need that ruthless element.

I appreciate that some Well fans of an older age than myself had different experiences with Hearts, but I’ve always found their fans in the main, fairly okay. 
 

Tynecastle is a great stadium for watching football and Gorgie Road has a certain charm about it with its old tenements. 
 

Their club song is a belter as well.

I'm of the vintage you describe as older fans. Whilst at uni (more than a few years back) I did research into football violence in Scotland and two things that emerged were (1) Hearts supporters were ranked number one for most likely to cause trouble by all other Scottish teams and (2) Arrest rates at Fir Park were the highest of all grounds. Former was well-deserved rating in my opinion and latter I think was a more reflection of the macho culture of Strathclyde Police (Lanarkshire).

We had a terrible record against Hearts through the mid eighties to early nineties.  I don't know exactly but I think it was about 15 games or something without a win, or maybe 1 win.  Something like that anyway! I'll maybe look that up later on.

EDIT - 2 wins in 36 between 1983 - 1993 and a run of 0 wins in 15 between 1985 and 1988.

Killie were given the runaround for most of the match and Donnelly was the first player subbed.

Not exactly a confidence builder for Kilmarnock.

It's actually interesting just how poor the Premiership teams have been in the League Cup so far.  The only team with two wins is Aberdeen and that was against very low level sides.

For all I want Hearts to lose most weeks I do think Tynecastle is a good ground and its a good away game generally. Easy to get to on public transport, feels like an occasion and a team it's good to beat.

Far better away day than Hibs IMO. 

Disappointed that the Turnbull to West Ham rumour has died, would love to see him move on from Celtic, mostly for the fee I think we're due...

There never was one, it's a wind up by a Celtic fan that he's done every window since DT signed for Celtic. Jut so happens this time someone bit.

Cedric Kipre season long loan to Cardiff

This makes me very happy!

The thought of him turning out for the other blue mob was pretty depressing.

Would be nice to think Cedric chose the 18th team from last season's Championship over Rangers, but I suspect that's not the case. The origin of the Rangers story seems to be a local paper in the Midlands that had him linked to Rangers and Metz - of course with no sources or quotes.

See over on p&b that Trevor Carson may be injured again. That guy has no luck.

As one of those fans of an older age all I can say is 'wash your mouth out with soap'. 

We are the Motherwell FC, we hate the Hearts and we hate the Hearts

We hate the Hearts and we hate the f****** Hearts

We are the MFC.

Very sad, as he's a good keeper but had some horrific luck. Good luck to him. However, Saints took a gamble when they signed him, given his injury/health problems. .

When I say ruthless, I mean ruthless. They had 2 rules just do it and don't get caught. They would do anything inside or outside the rules to get a result. Not nice. It was a step well beyond hard physical football or even hatchet football.
