No Hearts update today as club football (soccer) in Europe shuts down for a couple of weeks for World Cup qualifying games.

Great excitement at Hampden today where Scotland took the lead against Italy but couldn’t hold it, giving up an equalizer close to the end of the game.

Oh well, at least things under new manger Walter Smith are looking a lot better.

Let’s hope we can get all three points against Norway on Wednesday to keep up some slim hopes of qualifying for the next World Cup.
