Did Davie Weir not get sent off in the match where just about half the hearts team got sent off? If he didn't he was about the only one.
Think we win 4-0. 4 sent off for them. Didn’t Richard Gough tell team to go for the jugular at 4-0

Gough was pleading with the ref not to send a Hearts player off.

One of them was sent off for kicking the post wasn’t he?
Took this from Scotsman:

"Pointon red - Kicking the post seems like a ridiculous reason to book a player, but it was looked upon as an expression of dissent. It’s the same when a player bounces the ball in anger after a contentious decision. It’s not the act itself, but the context. Pointon screamed at linesman Graeme Allison after kicking the post and, like Bruno, was on a yellow card at time."

3-0 and no, gough lambasted the ref for sending so many off and we took it easy. With the players we had then we could've taken 10

Yes.
Only Gough being a nice guy and the referee deciding he wasn’t going to allow the game to be abandoned, kept the score at four.

Definitely not.
With seven opponents, we could have had three spare men in the box every attack.
If he’d demanded the jugular, he’d have got it, both of them in fact,

I know it's not quite the same but Kenny Miller was sent off for Dundee at Ibrox when we played them last season

Am I not right in saying he did the opposite and told them to go easy, and we suffered further down the line because of goal difference? Or is that a false memory?
