Yes Hearts' 3-3 draw at Hamilton Accies didn't go down to well with some folk - especially having been 3-1 down as well.
No doubt there will be those at the club will try to ham up the (ahem) 'heroic comeback' but it was a poor performance from Hearts. Folk being miffed at it will be understandable.
But here's where those frothing at the mouth as if they've just been bitten by the most rabid of dogs will come in.
A Newcastle-supporting acquaintance of mine once dubbed such people as the "rubbish man gerrim oot" squad who think chopping and changing managers on a whim is the panacea to all the club's ills.
Yes Robbie Neilson is not fallible and has made mistakes but he has enough currency to fall back on to justify not being sacked.
If Hearts were to going on a losing run to the point where the club finds itself in a relegation battle then that would be a suitable moment to re-evaluate his position.
But given that come 10 days time, Hearts could be second in the league, it would be spurious to consider such a scenario.
And even if they're not, the reasons for sacking him are minimal.
You would have to wonder if this would even be an issue if this was the pre-internet era.
Imagine the flack Alex MacDonald would have received from the 'Twitterati' after his first season in charge when Hearts failed on the final day of the 1981/82 season to win promotion back to the Premier League.
Or even Jim Jefferies when Hearts found themselves rock bottom weeks after his initial appointment. The internet was around then but the forums had yet to get into full swing.
Both would subsequently turn their situations around.
There is also something else to consider - the 'be careful what you wish for' factor. Something discussed in a previous post of mine but worth re-reading given that bowing down to populism has set the club back in the past.
Winning a promotion at a canter and qualifying for Europe with a third placed finish no doubt raised expectations of the fans that Hearts could push on.
They're still within a shout of repeating the previous year's achievement but because some allowed their hopes to leap over the Walter Scott Monument, such folk do seem a bit gutted that a title challenge is not being put up.
To be fair, that is not Neilson's fault - his boss Ann Budge may have (in hindsight) placed more expectation on him than was feasibly possible with her title bid talk at the end of last season.
Whether Neilson also subscribed to Budge's claim in private is another matter but the reality is Hearts needed stronger personnel brought in - even allowing for the budgetary constraints needed to keep the club in the black.
As discussed in a previous post, all of the strikers have failed to make their mark - there but for the grace of a decent midfield (and Callum Paterson's sorties up front from defence) that Hearts have scored goals this term.
Defence at times has looked ropey. Odd when you look at it given it functioned well enough last season.
However, last season they had an experienced goalkeeper playing behind them in Neil Alexander.
Hearts told him they were looking towards the future and told him to look for another club last summer.
They placed all their goalkeeping eggs in one basket in trying to land Scotland cap Matt Gilks - only for him to choose a place on the bench at Rangers.
With a new season drawing near, Hearts decided to spin the tale of how they were placing their faith in youth by promoting Jack Hamilton to the number one spot.
Truth being this was not their original plan. While the young Hamilton has shown flashes of his potential, he is still some way off being the article that Hearts really needed.
Gilks was meant to be our goalkeeper according to the club's grand design - not Hamilton.
The youngster's performance at his namesake's place last night showed that defensively, he is Hearts' Achilles heel.
Apart from looking at the striking options in the January transfer window, Neilson must cast his eye on the goalkeeping position as well.
Problematic though the above issues are, they can be fixed and Neilson has earned enough spurs to be given the chance to fix them.
As stated earlier, if Hearts should find themselves on a downward spiral to the point of having to fight relegation then that will be the time to appraise whether or not Neilson deserves to stay on.
But fourth in the table and only a handful of points away from second spot does not yet merit placing Tony Ford's infamous white jacket on him.
