Admin mark 2 will make it easier for the Spfl to make a decision.

 

If we are doing this. What position are other's in too...?

 

Some must be worse.

I'm sorry but I thought we were on a sound financial footing. Appreciate this was unforeseen but we haven't even missed a home game yet!

Don't know if it's us just taking a sensible approach or if it's a bit worrying. We can't be the only ones with cash flow problems surely

Step up the mystery benefactor

Step up all the Hearts fans who don't donate to FOH and divert funds to help the club.

Now she is worried about lost revenue. Perhaps if she was watching our steep decline in our team the past 4 years she would already be awake to this.

So much for Budge being a shrewd and canny businesswoman. Taking us into administration quicker than Romanov did. 

You surely cant blame her for not financially planning for Covid19?

I think comments about 'sound financial footing' are taking into account money that the club can make outside of matchdays. Unfortunately that well has dried up also, so we're probably worse off than a lot of other clubs who don't have bar/venue hire etc

It is being suggest Manager and Players are being asked to take a 50% pay cut.

 

They would still be vastly overpaid for what they have served up this season.

I'm surprised that they had to be asked. Surely some of the higher earners could have got together and came to a decision about this. Yea they might not be on hundreds of thousands a week but I'm sure someone of 5k could survive dropping to 3k a week. And let's not turn this into a "some business woman she is". Every club will be feeling the strain from no income for months on end whilst still having overheads to pay. No one saw this coming and we won't be the first club to do this

I did say we should stop laughing at possible points deductions for clubs going into admin. I was told to I was over thinking it. We seem to be in big trouble.

Rather being in big trouble, the club are planning for a loss of revenue for a minimum of 4 months. That’s a lot of money. They’re just trying to make sure the club continues to be sustainable.

Well if we are struggling and I'd be surprised if we are should Budge not carry the can in the short term and bale us out. Surely with her wealth it would not be a problem to her. Still paying that parasite Levein and his buddy Mcphee can't be helping the wage bill either. Yes we are living in uncertain times but it's not just Hearts that are hurting here.

Sounds like if we are having to take such drastic action while having some help from FoH money, then it could be very bad for other clubs who have no safety net.

That statement is one a few clubs will no doubt follow with likewise.

huge problems ahead.

we need to divert FOH subs ASAP.

Make no mistake, other clubs will follow suit, we’re just ahead of the curve. 

Other clubs will be in the shit, yes.

 

However, shit that this has happened. Again.

Absolutely brutal but I can't imagine we'll be the only club doing this. Desperate times for everyone not just in football.

Some folk on here are absolute tools.

Blaming Budge for Coronavirus is a new low! 
 

People do realise that half the Scottish clubs WILL go bust through this.

Massive mishandling of the club by budge. Everything is over budget, in what she’s been involved in. We were only in profit last year due to a benefactor. She’s overstayed her welcome

 Not sure if we are able to claim yet or not. Other clubs responses will be telling. There was a rumour that one premiership club did not have insurance. Hope to god Anns not been that daft.

I would be amazed if other clubs dont do this or offer bigger cuts. Im sure the players wont starve or go homeless but this is a situation that is affecting every business. It shows how much clubs rely on gate income and match day sales.

Sorry state of affairs. Repeated everywhere in one way or another. 

 

Will be some casualties. Might be a need for SFA to implement some amnesty, special measures or something. Say a dozen clubs can't continue. 

 

Or its a big restructure with new clubs coming in.

It's simple, insolvency occurs when costs exceed income, not necessarily debt in itself.

 

Hearts probably budget for season ticket income in late March/ early April. With uncertainty about income, the choice becomes either take out credit or reduce costs.

 

The players have no where to go at the moment as no other club will recruit them as they are in the same circumstances.

its sensible business planning during a period of uncertainty to keep us on a sound footing.  We will absolutely not be the only ones to take this action give how much clubs rely on math day revenue. I would imagine its squeaky bum time at Ibrox.

Some laughable comments on this thread.

 

Hearts 'supporters' aye? Suppose it explains the poll on the relegation thread.

Blame, blame & blame is this what we have come to 🙄 we are trying to get ahead of the game here 👍🏻 Let’s see how other club manage as I believe the Scottish game is going to crash 😬 we are trying to adjust and still be here 👊

It was confirmed in a BBC article the other day that we had it unless they have gotten that wrong.
