The league leaders blew the chance to win the Championship title on Friday night at home to Alloa Athletic.

On reflection, it could be argued Hearts were somewhat lucky to have gained a point with the hosts creating numerous chances.

@maroonspecs:Dunfermline Athletic have shipped eight goals in the league this past week so of course they were going to keep a clean sheet against Robbie Neilson's Heart of Midlothian. Anyone who expected any different hasn't been paying close enough attention. Worth noting that this "response" that was being talked up in the papers after Brora by this group of gutless mercenaries has yet to materialise. After two games. In the second tier. With no fans present. Case closed.”

@AaronFraser37: “Genuinely never felt so disconnected from Hearts in my life. Not even angry anymore, just complete apathy. Cant wait until the league’s wrapped up and I never have to think about this season again. As I said on stream, I’m Hearts-daft. Every waking moment is spent thinking about the next game, I invest so much time and energy into that football club and it’s got to the point where I’m thinking why do I bother? Would probably have more fun smashing my face off a wall.”

@RFBorthwick: “Positives to take from the game: there is now only 360 minutes left of this season.”

@mrewanmurray: “The on field "response" to the Brora debacle is more offensive than the fact it happened in the first place.

@JamboFanTV: “It’s all about expectations. The manager and board are happy with mediocre but they can only maintain this with fans money. The fans want more from the board, manager and players. How far will they go to make a change?”

@Amoruso1998: “An indication that an echo chamber is in full swing. If Robbie thinks there would have been 3,500 hearts fans there today then he doesn’t know the levels of apathy we currently have. When there is budget gap as big as ours then we shouldn’t need to rely on competent refereeing.”

@clobster7: “That Raith game on the 30th April is gonna be a title decider game, ain’t it?”

@MartinTaylor9: “Another lifeless, dull and insipid performance where Hearts rarely tested the opposing keeper. Big decisions to be made if the club hopes to avoid a modern day record low uptake of season tickets.”

@adamtkendo: “Absolutely no surprise whatsoever. Another game we’re lucky to take anything from, disgrace.”

@therichardcobb: “Limping over the line. It’s damning that there was the potential to win the league next Friday yet once again the team didn’t look remotely interested. Playing like a team with no ideas and nothing to play for.”

@RobertMitchell_: “We have 4 games left... if Raith and Dundee win their games in hand they are 8 points behind us... we could throw this league and it wouldn’t even be a surprise with how this squad is playing lately.”
