    Sean Clare Signing for

    This laddie is supposed to be a football player? Sean Clare was going to be a world beater in the Scottish league folk were saying? My thoughts from what I've seen so far are that Hearts have had their pants down with this signing. I can only hope that it’s a fitness thing and that after a full preseason he might amount to something next year. He looks miles off the pace and has shown zero signs of even being half decent or being able to contribute anything this season. He needs sending out on loan. Absolutely humpty so far and looks nowhere near good enough. It may be poo at Hillsborough at the moment but you’ll be pleased to hear Wednesday aren’t missing anything with this boy. Dogshite

    What do you even mean? A Wednesday fan has bias against everything Wednesday?

    Fletcher for Scotland

    I’m not talking about club performance with Bannan, he has been a standout player for almost all his time at Hillsborough. This thread is about the Scotland team, and Bannan has been no better than alright for Scotland for years. He’s worthy of a place in the squad for sure but he’s certainly not the future of the team, and he is playing at a lower level than all of the above midfielders I mentioned. I’m not being down on Bannan or Wednesday, I’m being realistic.

    Brexit

    I’m not sure if the North is listed? That would cause problems. It needs upgraded for sure and the Kop and West stand both need flattening and replacing

    Bannan and Fleck better? They’re really not. Bannan is alright but he is definitely not better than McTominay, Armstrong, McDonald, or more McGinn and he’s older than them all too. Three of those 4 play in the English Premier League. Bannan arguably should be in the squad ahead of McGregor at Celtic but he shouldn’t be anywhere near the starting lineup.

    It’s not just those two that would need upgraded/replaced though is it? The North Stand is nearly 60 years old too so staying put would mean upgrading/replacing 3 stands which is likely going to be cost prohibitive. I honestly can’t see any solution other than a new stadium but like you say both options would need to be costed and people would need to have a comparison. I’m a leaver but it’s not going to happen anytime soon anyway so it’s a pointless discussion.

    International Round-Up of sorts

    I’m amazed anyone paid to watch that. The regression under McLeish is terrifying

    Sean Clare

    Hardly acting like we’ve signed Ronaldo. It’s a decent signing of a young player but Hearts in the recent past have had a Champions League winner and a European Championship winner play for the club. And the laddie that is currently in Clare’s natural position at Hearts is an experienced full international and an African Cup of Nations winner. Clare will add depth but as Levein has said he will need to work hard to get into the team.

    It is a better ground and I have said it. You talk of class, I said nothing untrue or derogatory but you have ignored some of the comments on here by Wednesday fans that were far worse. I’m out. I’m not commenting on this thread anymore.

    I never called Hillsborough a dump. I stated facts that it is a stadium with character that has been in need of investment for a long time. It’s true

    If that’s directed at me that’s fine I’ll happily admit I’m a Hearts fan first.

    Now official. 3 year deal and scarf above the head photo completed. Good luck to him, a shame for Wednesday to lose him but I’m pleased he has joined Hearts.

    I don’t get your point? Hearts have had two league home games so far. A near sellout for a TV game against Celtic and close to 18,000 for St Mirren who brought less than 400 fans. The size of stadium restricts the club, for bigger games at Murrayfield attendances of 30k+ have occurred. Hearts almost every season have a small but realistic chance of challenging for the two cup competitions, true the league title is unlikely but they are currently sitting top of the league and outside of Rangers and Celtic they have the best league record in Scotland of all the other clubs. And I fancy Hears more than Rangers to win a trophy this season and that’s without the maroon and white specs on.

    Absolutely. Hillsborough frankly is a bit of an embarrassment these days. A good stadium 20-25 years ago but scoreboard and pitch aside it has barely had any money spent on it in that time. It has character and great views but it’s falling to bits in places and not fitting of a Premier league or top end Championship club anymore. Tynecastle has had 4 new stands built in that time and is a fully modern stadium with good facilities everywhere.

    I disagree not everything is matched or bettered. Wednesday are a bigger club, with a bigger fan base, have a better overall squad and can pay higher wages if they choose to although I don’t think Wednesday did with Clare. Wednesday also obviously play in a better league and have more potential due to the league structure that the club plays in, but Hearts have several plus points over Wednesday. The stadium is better at Hearts, and it’s full every week, the training facilities are better at Hearts, the academy facilities are better at Hearts, Edinburgh is a more attractive city to live in for most people, there is the genuine opportunity for him to win things at Hearts, the financial situation of the club is better, the owners of the club are better, and most importantly the trajectory of the club is positive and the future is exciting too. Hearts are a club on the up whereas I would say it’s fair to say the same cannot be said for Wednesday under the current circumstances. I support both clubs, both are good clubs operating at a similar level, but most importantly and as said above by another poster Clare maybe fancied the move himself too. As I said a wee bit of self reflection and reality from Wednesday fans without the disparaging comments would have come across better. It just comes across bitter.
