      We caught up with the chaps over at Heart Till We Die to find out their views on an early managerial change, how it felt seeing the old main stand being knocked down and their thoughts on this Saturdays clash.

      So, with two teams to choose from in Edinburgh, what made you support Hearts?

      Well, my family supports them so I was always going to be a Jambo

      Hearts Till I Die has a tremendous following with over 38,000 likes. What made you start up the Facebook page?

      I always liked the idea of creating a page on something you like, so I thought I'd make one for the team I support. Originally, the page was named 'I Was Alive When Hearts Won 10-0' (after the 10-0 thumping of Cowdenbeath) but I decided to change it about a year later because I thought it needed a freshen up.

      The old main stand took its last breath at the end of the season and is now in the process of being replaced with a new, younger model. How did it feel to see that part of the ground torn down and how is the redevelopment progressing?

      It's a shame to see it go after all the memories it holds but it's not such a bad thing as we're getting a bigger and better stand which will hopefully provide new memories! The development side is getting there but I was gutted when I heard it wasn't going to be ready in time for September. I suppose it just makes the anticipation even better for November!

      Ian Cathro in the managers chair never worked out for you and he was relieved of his duties after only seven months, on the eve of the first League game. Did you want to see him go or did you feel he needed a few more months in the job before any action should have been taken?

      I always backed him last season and was happy to see him have another fresh season. New signings looked great, we just needed to see that passion on the pitch which we missed last season. But unfortunately it started badly for him by getting knocked out of the league cup against a group of teams who we should be beating (no disrespect). After that, I just wanted to see someone new come in before it could get any worse.

      Jon Daly took up the reigns while a manager was sought out. It turned out to be someone that was already at the club, Craig Levein that would walk into the dugout. Having been away from management since 2012, are you happy with his appointment?

      Me personally, I was satisfied with the appointment. I wasn't over the moon of course, as I was expecting one of the better names. But at the end of the day, we were getting a manager who'll have plenty of discipline and has a huge knowledge of the club. He also had a successful spell before with us.
      I know the Aberdeen game was technically a home tie but it was at Murrayfield so it still must have felt like an away match. When you play us, it will be your EIGHTH game in a row away from Tynescastle. It must be costing an arm and a leg to follow the club right now?

      Of course, but that's how you have to deal with it. Soon, we'll have a period of eight home games in a row (one against you) which will hopefully bring many points.

      We’ve asked everyone first time around how they have felt about their team’s summer transfers. Have you been impressed with Hearts and what players, if any, have you been disappointed to see leave?

      I've been impressed with our signings. Lafferty and Berra were brilliant coups with Berra knowing the club very well and is a natural leader. Callachan, a Jambo himself, is looking a worth while signing. Overall, I've been happy with our signings. I was disappointed to see Callum Paterson leave because he's such an influential player. A unique goal scoring right back is always going to be a loss but I hope he does well down at Cardiff.

      Pick a player from each team that will cause the other problems.

      Jamie Walker - he's looked more himself these last few games and I think he'll cause some damage to your defence.

      A-Jay Leitch-Smith - he scored a couple against St Johnstone a couple weeks ago and could well do the same to us.

      Where do you want to see Hearts finish this year and how do you see them doing in the Scottish Cup?

      I hope to see us finish in the top 4 and hopefully a European place to go with that. I would really like to see us have a good run in the Scottish Cup as we've not had one since the humiliation of Hibs.

      Finally, how do you see Saturdays clash panning out? A repeat of the last game we had at Dens would be fantastic but highly unlikely I guess and maybe not what you would have in mind?

      I reckon we'll be right up for it after drawing to Partick last week and with Lafferty back, I think we'll just edge it and get the win.

      Good Luck on Saturday!

      Kerr Waddell scored deep into stoppage time to earn Dundee a 2-1 win over Hearts at Dens Park in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership. Hearts gave a debut to 16 year old midfielder Harry Cochrane but Waddell opened the scoring for the hosts before the break. Kyle Lafferty’s equaliser looked to have earned Craig Levein’s men a point before Waddell grabbed his second at the death.

      Who was your man of the match against Kilmarnock in today's game?
    • UWTB1893

      Deacon said, “I think as a team it’s on our minds subconsciously that we play better at home.”
      “We’ve done very well at home this season, we picked up the point against Hibs, beat St Johnstone and I think we’ve been unlucky in the other games, too.

      After drawing against Kilmarnock last Saturday, Deacon is hoping the team can up their game on at Dens.
      “As a team we want to improve on the Kilmarnock game for Saturday and put things right and pick up the three points.
      “I don’t think we played well as a unit for the whole 90 minutes — we’re not happy with that, we know we can do a lot better.

      With Kilmarnock and Partick yet to win this season and teams like Ross County on a run of bad results, the Englishman is hoping the Dees can hit a run of form to propel the team up the league.

      “We need to get a bit of momentum going in the league to get us in a higher position..
      “Sooner or later we’ll click as a team much better.
      “We’ve got a lot of new players in, everyone’s gelling but we’ve been playing well.
      “In the league we’ve been good most weeks. Kilmarnock wasn’t our greatest performance, we know that as a team, we just have to put it right.”
