Didn't See That Coming

Post by Bertie Bassett on Sun Dec 17, 2017 4:25 pm

So, after 69 competitive domestic games undefeated and going to Tynecastle where the home side have struggled since returning there to score more than once per game against the lesser lights in the division, who expected Hearts to destroy Celtic 4-0 & a 16 year old boy to be the star of the show? Congrats to the Gorgie Boys, a fantastic result for them today.

Just shows what can happen when you match hard work with complacency. We've surprised a few teams this season with our work ethic.
We all knew somebody would beat them eventually but never imagined it would be a gubbing.

Aye, agreed Orco, I expected that when they lost it would be by the odd goal and a backs-to-the-wall parked bus routine. But Hearts appear to have really taken it to them and swept them aside in the manner that Celtic have been doing.

May as well stick to this thread for Falkirk pumping Utd 6-1 yesterday, def didn't see that one coming. Shocked

Didn't think anyone in this division had it in them to score 6 goals past another Championship team, not even Brechin, but the team that had the best defensive record and sitting in 2nd place v a crap Falkirk team, bonkers result.

Aye, this might as well be the surprise result thread...

Newport 2 Leeds 1 fits it too. Leeds have been fairly solid top 6 in the English second tier & get knocked out the FA Cup by Newport County.

Not all giant killer results qualify, cause I think Coventry beating Stoke was on the cards.

That was some game between Liverpool and Man City, even 4-1 up Liverpool barely held onto their win. Man City just keep scoring goals and never give up, 2 entertaining teams both going for goals.

Aye, it was a cracker of a match, City almost stealing a point at the death as well. I think Liverpool deserved to edge it but it would have been some come back if City had equalised.

Isn't a successful one but kinda fits into this thread for their gallant effort. Norwich v Chelsea in the cup, brilliant effort by Norwich getting an equaliser in the last minute of injury time with their last kick/header of the ball. Fully deserved after clipping the bar and hitting the post.

The ET was mad too, 3 Chelsea players booked for diving, and 2 of them sent off too. Perdo's was a blatant dive and then another deserved booking for a cynical foul later on. Morata went down too easily throwing himself forward when he had an arm and hand put on him, he'd been going down far too easily a few times tbh so I think he deserved his booking, then got a red card for his heated protest to the referee. Willian got clipped for the 3rd one but I reckon he was going down before he got touched so the ref was spot on, the VAR agreed despite the pundits all saying it was a blatant penalty.

It was refreshing to see the ref going against the big team playing at home and not giving them big decisions.

Chelsea eventually won in the penalty shoot out, with 5 excellently taken spot kicks.

Yeah, I wasn't convinced that Willian's was a pen either. I think they need to change the wording to something like, "unless the video evidence is sufficient to overturn the decision, then the ruling on the pitch stands" - I don't think Willian dived but not all contact is a foul and not all non-contact is a dive (a player can genuinely slip or sometimes try to avoid contact & lose balance - the latter situation could be argued as a non-contact foul as the player has arguably been impeded but that would open a whole new can of diving worms)
