Hearts faced the familiar feeling of defeat at Tynecastle against Kilmarnock on Saturday, to the disappointment of many fans.
A goal from Chris Burke sealed a third 1-0 win for Killie on the spin at Tynecastle.
It’s a setback for Craig Levein following a positive run of games that seen them win the Edinburgh derby and secure a League Cup semi-final berth.
Some Hearts fans haven’t taken too kindly to Kilmarnock walking away with three points again.
Yet another hopeless result!!!!

Levein 100% needs to go! He cant turn this around we couldve played another 90 minutes and still not scored, the football is abysmal and he said if he felt he couldnt turn things round he would go! Well…….👋🏼

There's not even the slightest indication we're getting any better. We've been awful for a year now and there's no excuse to let it continue. Levein must be removed.

Players dont look fit enough. Only way to get levein out is to cancel the direct debits. Who was the board member that suggested levein?? Needs put in to exile

Hearts fans are desperate for consistency, not flash in the pan results
Injuries certainly didn’t help Hearts against Kilmarnock, but fans expect to see better. There wasn’t a natural striker in the starting XI.
Throughout the game they didn’t show anywhere near the amount of heart and desire they’ve shown in recent games, looking flat and underconfident once again.
In 36 league games since last October, Hearts have picked up 32 points, a tally that was enough to see St Mirren confined to the relegation play-offs last season.
Hearts need a consistent run of form, not just a couple of decent results. Game by game, they are slowing being cut off at the bottom of the league. The Jambos are five points off the top six.
That achievement is getting further and further away from them with every passing game.
