Hearts Football Club

Hearts Football ClubHearts: Great Tynecastle Tales Tynecastle Park has been the venue for some of the greatest games in Scottish football history, from European nights and top-of-the-table league clashes to relegation battles, cup ties and fierce derby showdowns with city rivals Hibs. However, things are set to change as Vladimir Romanov, the Lithuanian-based multi-millionaire who recently replaced the controversial Chris Robinson as owner of the club, wants to improve the stadium. This means that the ground fans know and love will be changed forever - and Romanov has not ruled out an eventual move from the stadium, an idea which, as Chris Robinson discovered, Hearts supporters find abhorrent. For them, the ground is the nerve centre of all that is good about Hearts, a place where they gather to pay homage to their heroes and have witnessed the great dramas unfold over the years.

Hearts HistoryHearts: The Official Illustrated History of Edinburgh's Oldest League Club One of Scotland's oldest football clubs, Heart of Midlothian have consistently produced players who have graced Scottlsh football and beyond. This illustrated history plots the beginnings of the club in 1874, looks back on the early League and Cup successes and charts the progress of the club in the post-war years. It details their rise to greatness again under Tommy Walker when Hearts dominated the game in the late 1950s and early 1960s with the 'Terrible Trio' of Willie Bauld, Jimmy Wardhaugh and Alfie Conn at their most menacing. There were also the heartbreaks of missing out on the Scottish League title in 1965 and 1986 by the narrowest of margins before Hearts finally ended 36 years without a trophy by winning the Scottish Cup under Jim Jefferies in 1998.
