Superb statement, and you can see that both ourselves and now Aberdeen have spelled it out crystal clear that Scottish football has a financial crisis that she is taking proactive action in damage limitation.

 

I wonder how the likes of St Mirren, St Johnstone, Motherwell etc are planning for 6 months of no old firm income?  These clubs must have a major cashflow problem in these circumstances.

 

I think to an extent the saving garce for the clubs you mention is the fact that they don't seem to rely as heavily on the commercial side of the business.

 

Aberdeen and ourselves make a very large chunk of income from the commerical side of things.

 

The others are used to working on much lower levels and obviously have lower wage bills proportionate to their income but they will still struggle.

Budge has had a lot of fair criticism recently but that is a very good statement.

 

Simple, lays it all out and doesn't pull any punches in naming the red top rags. Good stuff. My only question would be why is John Murray saying we have a transfer budget if we don't... (Not that we will or should be buying anyone any time soon anyway!)

What a stupid post. She’s setting out our financial position and detailing how we plan to survive, whilst correcting some of the shite being spouted in the media.

Don’t see why.  They do actually come out with correct exclusives at times.  It’s just their columnists that are wanks.

I don’t think anyone buys the paper.  Curiosity usually leads to visiting their website though. 

My wife’s mum and dad have asked me to get them 2 papers whilst they have to stay in.

The Sun and the Evening News. Couldn’t believe it when they asked me.

I don’t even look at any headlines on them. Just drop them off and go.

Even so

it should be a ban for anyone who puts a link to the sun paper going forward -

Why is john murray stating we will have money for transfers if we havent?

The first highlight is the future tense.

The second is the present tense.

To help you a little, I'll give you an example

At the moment I have no money.  At the end of the month when I get paid I will have money .

Has that helped?

Agreed. Same goes for the Record and I'll add the EEN. I would rather wipe my farter with my underpants or even a rusty brillo pad than use that vermin rag.

 

Excellent statement by Mrs Budge but you can bet your bottom dollar the thickos and planks on social media and some on here will try and pick holes in it in their usual inimitable manner ie by spouting more shite.

I think this proves that no one knows the situation the club are in except the club. Media hacks and some so called fans  jumping on the rumour mill just to get themselves noticed and stick the boot in.

I would dare too say we might be in a better position than most clubs money wise but these measures had to be taken for the survival of the club. I know many like myself have been annoyed with the playing side but that is something we can change. AB standing by CL is the biggest annoyance to most fans imo and will be until he exits but we need to be sensible.

We dont know when this will end but the main thing is we still have a team to support come the end of it.

One interesting point in the statement. Ann seems to be saying that all the short term lending to the club is from her personally, not from any other benefactor. In effect most (all?) of the money donated to FOH is continuing to flow to the club even though it gets there indirectly. In other words, contributions to FOH > money paid to Bidco to buy club shares > funds to Ann > funds lent by her to club (and which she isn’t expecting to get repaid any time soon).

Well done AB. Very good honest update.

 

I wonder what negatives the media will manage to conjure up out of this statement?

No doubt they'll get a lot of help from the usual numpties on this forum and the keyboard warriors on social media who seem  delight in having a dig at the club.

“Much has been made of an email, sent by our Head of Player Recruitment, to agents with regard to potential recruitment requirements once football resumes,” she said.

“We must continue to plan for football returning and make sure we are in the strongest possible position possible when that happens.

I think she's right. We would have the same issues around meeting financial obligations at this time whether we were 1st or 12th when football shut down during this crisis 

 

She will have to confront serious questions about why we're 12th at a later date 

 

Now is not the time though

It's ok. Michael Stewart will try and use a few words of more than one syllable, they will look even more glaikit than usual as they get the felt tip pens oot, then Tom English will blow them all out of the water with a great article.

The right statement. Really interesting insight into realistic timescales being discussed by the clubs informally. Those even look optimistic tbh. Prize money has to be released in some capacity or there will be a domino rally of administrations.

That must be a generational thing then.  My dad still gets the record for example.  I’ve not actually bought a paper for over ten years apart from the 2012 een the day after the cup final.

Good statement and getting it right up the Sun. Cutting wages was always the right thing to do and unless in exceptional circumstances, I would like to think all players will comply.

So anyone with any sense can see other clubs will follow Ann's lead and thanks to her quick response we will be ahead of the rest when this does all go away.

The one small part of the statement I take exception to is :

 

We have managed cashflow very tightly during these years of investment.

 

Perhaps if you had tighter control of what Levein was spending we wouldn't have so many carp players.

Well that was a statement. No punches pulled and we have a clear strategy to help cope and we were miles ahead of anyone else by all accounts. 
Yes Ann can be critiqued for putting to much faith in Levein but she certainly can’t be criticised for being a very proactive owner and business woman. These half brained journalists have no idea how to run a successful business they are only shit stirring arseholes out to grab cheap headlines and satisfy the hatred of all things Hearts. 

pity they were so unquestioning about Rangers activities .Might have saved the club instead of hanging onto every word Murray uttered.

You bought it on a Sunday 🤷🏾‍♂️😜. I didn’t surface until around teatime on the Monday, I couldn’t get a copy in Gorgie. I txt my brother in law who is a taxi driver and he got me one in Leith, piles of them apparently 😱🤔😆😃😍.
