Baffling Hearts-Related News
There have been various reports over the past couple of days linking Hearts with summer moves for certain players again, and you can't help but wonder where they originate from.
How on earth can Hearts be in a position to sign anyone given their current predicament? The alleged hunt for a manager STILL appears to be no further forward, but at the same time we are then told that Stevie Frail has been asked to submit a list of 20 'big name' signings that he thinks would put us back among the big boys? Why oh why would he be asked to do that if he wasn't going to be the new manager I wonder? You'd have to think then, that either Frail IS going to be the new manager, or either that or this story is yet another load of garbage being made up by the Press, one to rival the 'Billy Brown for Hearts boss' one a few weeks ago.
Very strange though isn't it? Now we're getting the news that Hearts are allegedly sniffing around Gretna's freed striker Mickael Buscher with a view to signing him in the summer, and at the same time Frail is telling us that new goalkeeper is the team's priority. Again, if any of this is true then who is actually calling the shots here? If it is Frail and his team and they really aren't going to be the long term solution at Tynecastle, then why would they be given any remit whatsoever when it comes to this? Or is it simply our owner picking a few more names out of a hat?
Once again in relation to Hearts there are many, many more questions than answers at the moment, and does anyone seriously believe that this is likely to change anytime soon? Hmm....
