From a link @Ryder posted on the Stokes thread, I'd suggest this explains why we have been able to pay an increased wage for Naismith.

 

A quote from Levein at the agm in Dec'16;

 

“When we get to the point where we’re bringing four or five players into the first team from the academy, then the money we can spend on players increases. Then, all of a sudden, you’re looking at a different animal altogether,”

 

 

That quote gave me a little movement.

 

Make sure the young lads get paid Thier share as well tho!

Dinnae want them leaving.

I just had a fantastic cup of coffee. Often when I drink coffee I wonder what my life would be like if I was Steven Naismith.

 

"Probably ****ing awesome" I conclude.

Neil Lennon saying Hibs couldn't afford Naismith. 

He's saying we can probably afford these signings because we've been back in the premiership for 3 seasons. 

 

Hibs fans are having none of it though. Apparently we've wasted the Walker money on him. 

 

I doubt any money we've spent has been a "waste". He will be a great influence on and off the pitch. 

 

How much did we get for Walker anyway? £350,000? 

 

If we're paying the reported £7,500 a week for him, that's £180,000 over 6 months..

The season is over in about 18 weeks so if it's £7.5k x 18 it's £135,000 for his time here.

Then you have to remember Walker was probably on, what, £2k himself so in reality Naismith might only be costing us £100k or so for his time here.

It’ll only be a waste if he doesn’t succeed during his time here. I can’t see that happening though. Goal the morn to kick off a great 6 months

Bang on.

 

And if Naismith has a decisive influence on the outcome of tomorrow's game, that £100k 'cost' is wiped out, regardless of who we draw in the next round.

So, in effect, we're paying Naismith and extra £3.5k per week, so only c £65k over the remainder of the season

So only £65 thousand for the 18 weeks...that only leaves another £235,000 to SPUNK, just from Walker deal alone!

Hopefully that'll be enough to fill in the Gorgie-wheatfield corner.

I've been a member of the forum since 2006. I don't post a lot, but I like reading Kickback for the snippets of information that get thrown out there (hats of to the guys that provide the info, you know who you are). His kind of negativity though is infuriating and normally leads to me posting out of pure frustration. I have absolutely no problem with fans of other clubs coming on board and discussing footballing matters from their own perspective. What I find offensive, however, is when people pretend to be something they are not, like that is somehow getting one over on the opposition. All I can say to that is, eh?!?

 

I can totally relate to this. There's probably quite a few folk on here that think I must be a right argumentative pr1ck, but I'm not really (although I definitely am pedantic and sarcastic!), I do though have a tendency to let myself get wound up by some of the trolls and arseholes on here, then end up posting something having a go at someone that really doesn't deserve it!

Correct.  To the Tesco metro at Russel Road.  Roseburn Bar to be connected to the new stand.  By a gyratory.

Sure they weren't Chinese arseholes (I know, I know; all arseholes look the same)?

In my experience, groups of Japanese behave themselves. But with Chinese, anything goes. The first thing to go is queuing etiquette. And their street spitting is something to behold...................puts me in mind of Scotland in the 60s.

I was sitting in the Qantas lounge at Sydney airport a couple of months ago.  My flight was at the same time as the one to Tokyo.  The advance on the bar resembled something out of the film Hacksaw Ridge.

Er, there are a few possible ways in a money no object type scenario. Which aren't worth giving airtime. 

 

Now that we have built new stand some previous options become more difficult. Best way would be... dismantle roseburn. Add a section to the main and wheatfield. Rebuild or renew roseburn.

I was really happy when we picked up Tony Watt on loan. He ended up being a lazy waster who did nothing and, pretty clear to see, will waste his career before ending up Riordan mkII.

 

Naismith is a better player with an infinitely improved attitude. He's going to be a big player for us.

 

Thought it was interesting that someone had spoke about Levein's vision for us in a few years. If we look at a squad of around 22 and half are made up of youth players, we're only paying for 11 experienced players. That means that if our current wage limit is £4k, we could then stretch to £8k pw for the right players. That would mean we'd be comfortably ahead of Hibs and Aberdeen and could really push ahead of those two.

That's right. Always said a debt-free hearts could pay good wages. 

 

The game really has changed. There have been mistakes, thus wastes of cash, notably cathro era and we've been unlucky not to receive more in transfer fees. (Or we could've been at this point earlier)

 

Fag packet... turnover 10M.. safe wage budget 6M... management and youth player wages 800k. 5.2M senior playing squad budget = 100k p/w = 10 ×10k/20 x 5k.

 

I've been conservative :verysmug:

Minus Walkers wages 3k ish over 6 months  circa 80k so the Naismith deal is costing us around 100k ish , hardly 350 k .

65k I believe he will cost assuming he gets paid 3.5k more than JW.

 

still leaves around 235-285k Banked from JW sale. Has the young lad been sold to Brighton yet? Cos that'd be another welcome boost to the stand project and a further shot in the arm to our ambitions.

 

Seriously cannot wait until stand fully funded and out the way of our football budgets.

Hibs have been known not to be able to afford stuff in the past but it didn't prevent them from spending the money and like... not giving all of it back.

 

Amirite vermin?
