A bit stressful yesterday, wasn't it?
Anyway... i've posted some pics from tynecastle today up on photobucket - not great quality, as my proper camera battery ran out of juice and I was reduced to using my camera on my phone...

It's been some season alright. That Killie game at the start of the season seems like a world away.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! NA NA NA NA! CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! NA NA NA NA!
Still doesn't stop him from being a cunt though. I hate Hibs :(

COS IT'S 105 YEARS IN A ROW!!!!!!
I've been a Hearts supporter all my life, though I used to work in the Caley Thistle shop. :S Live in Perth now, but have played in Tynecastle. (Won a coca-cola competition to do so.)
Suppose I'd better put some content into my first post:
International Caps (U-17): 10
International Goals (U-17): 7
Club Appearances: 65
Club Goals: 76
Current Club: Lask
Should be a good find for us.
Taken from the Scotsman:
Hearts ready to complete swoop for Bulgarian kid
HEARTS will complete the signing of Bulgarian teenager Branimir Kostadinov inside the next ten days after the player secured a student visa for his move to Scotland.
The 16-year-old has been training with the Jambos since January, when the club began fighting through stringent red tape to sign a player whose country is not a member of the European Union.
However, Kostadinov secured a two-year student visa this week and will now enrol in a plush Edinburgh school to facilitate his move to Tynecastle, which should be finalised next week when his registration is lodged with the SFA.
"It's 99.9 per cent done and dusted," said John Murray, Hearts' youth academy director. "Now Branimir has his student visa, we have to meet with the SFA to get him registered with that.
"We met with the SFA a while ago to apply for international clearance for him, which hasn't arrived yet, so now we will go back to them with all the relevant documentation that will allow him to sign as an amateur and play for our youth side.
"I will make an appointment to see the SFA and they will give us a date, probably next week some time, and we can go through and talk to them with a view to getting things tied up as soon as possible.
"The whole process should be completed in the next week to ten days, which will be great news for us."
Another Hearts teenager, Daniel Galbraith, remains on his way out of Tynecastle in a £50,000 deal to Manchester United, although the move will not go through until the summer.
