Who Is To Blame For Hearts’ Woes?

Accra Hearts of Oak lies thirteenth on the log with 17 points- a situation unwelcomed by the fans of the club because this is not what they expected after an impressive season last term where they placed third and were losing finalists in the FA cup.
Much was expected from this Hearts team this term and many were those who were of the firm belief that their trophyless drought will surely come to an end but with recent happenings, I bet they will be jolted out of that belief and must still continue to wait for another season as has been the case for about decade now. But how did things get this messy for the Phobians who were brimming with confidence at the start of the season?
Nuttall? some are of the belief that his departure from club has greatly affected the club. His tactical technical nous and competence was never in doubt. 
Just like Maurizio Sarri, Nuttall met a Hearts team low in confidence and some mediocre players who were not only calumniated by those associate with the club but also unwanted. As the adage goes, “when the desired becomes unavailable, the available becomes desired,” the Scottish breathed a new lease of life that saw players that played with diffidence hitherto now playing with great gusto. 
Under his tutelage, Leonard Tawiah, Kwame Kizito and Vincent Atinga who were in the bad books of the fans became the fulcrum of the Hearts team with the latter duo replicating their fine displays during the Black Stars B WAFU triumph. Thomas Abbey’s scoring prowess was brought to bear under his tenure. 
The thought of having Nuttall as a coach was enough motivation for many a Hearts fan to be hopeful of better days ahead but that wasn’t to be as the gaffer was sacked by personalities occupying the highest echelon of administration at club painfully sacking the Nuttall, citing acts of unprofessionalism as the reason behind their action. The news didn’t go down well with the fans but what could they do? Nothing!
Enter Henry Wellington, Nuttall’s assistant. His appointment was met with a lot of razzmatazz. The Hearts family looked polarized. A section wanted a local man who knew the ins-and-outs of the club to be given the opportunity to lead the club so to them, Wellington fits the bill because he’s been around since 2016. 
Others doubted his technical and tactical nous and rather wanted someone with proven track record to continue the good work of Frank Nuttall.
Unfortunately, the Hearts family is yet to see a blueprint established and developed since he assumed office. Diminishing ambition- even if it is difficult to meet that expectation- has never sat well for the Phobians. Nor should it. 
What has quickly become evident, even for those who deemed his appointment as a necessary evil following poor results on the pitch, is the extent to which considerable frustration has started to set in on the terraces as he has been unable to progress Hearts stylistically.
Of course, not all the ire has been solely at Wellington; nor is the club’s current predicament entirely his making. But the obvious point to make is that if Wellington cannot win supporters round following a sustained run of improved form, then he will never be able to do so. Comments over the weekend about winning the “hearts and minds’ of the Hearts faithful smacked of trump levels of delusion and spin.
So, who is to blame for the club’s current state?
