I find I disagree vehemently with all the folk on here pretending to be Hearts fans.

It’s easy to assume that people who you don’t agree with aren’t hearts fans. There’s a lot of people who fall into that trap. People are arseholes and assuming that all hearts fans are immune to this is naive. 
 

I enjoy, most of the time, reading other people’s point of view. It’s what makes this forum entertaining.

A digression.

I just had PayPal asking me to update/complete my profile by supplying my cell number. Now I have been going through them for years for my FOH contributions and have never been asked for this before.

Anyone think it might be dodgy?

 

If they provided you with a web link, try the link on a different platform and take it from there. I had a text message which l thought was from paypal saying they've suspended my account and provided a link. I used the link on my tablet but nothing happened so it turned out to be a lot of pish.

Been paying 20 a month since day 1, have missed the days when I was supposed to attend Tynecastle and receive certificates or whatever due to work  and family commitments . I know I should probably make more of an effort to at least get there but I'll happily give my dough til day I drop. This club given me undoubtedly some of the best moments of my life, and some of the not so good but its least I can do. 

Now please get a decent team on that ****in Park!!

Longer term this revenue has to be invested so that it too generates more funds. I assume mr Anderson can don't us a decent fund

Best ****ing fans in the world. ****ed over by the ***** running our game and still standing up to be counted.
 

The money I save from the away games I’ll no longer go to, Scotland games I’ll no longer go to, sky sports subscription I’ve cancelled, Nutmeg magazine I’ve cancelled etc will all be going to FoH. 
 

Only Hearts. 

 

What's Nutmeg done?

What you are doing is probably more important than folk sticking in more than they have budgeted. Also, I’m the same. I’ve missed the two rewards after the plot ceremony.

I'd like to invest a portion every season - 200-400K - into a "GIRUY Fund" where we buy a good player other teams can't afford, even if we don't really need him at the time, purely as a GIRUY and because we can.

Indeed. We can argue around whether the funds have been, or will be, spent well but when it comes to the crunch a hell of a lot Hearts fans won’t stand back and run the risk of watching their club die.

Going to leave it as is. They did supply a link to their site but since I've gotten by without them having a number up to now ......

£150k!!! Absolutely amazing. Very very proud to be part of it! 
I hope we can have our stand etc paid this season so the £150k a month can be used on an assault on the scabs in the SPL next season!! 
 

Ive maybe missed it but how much in comparison to our 8500 pledgers and £150k a month does ABERDNA pay towards the sheep?

Today would have been the start of the season and with us being home when it eventually starts and getting 14 home, 13 away, it is highly likely we would have been away.

 

Chucked in equivalent of an away ticket, plus one off same again.

We need to strike a balance between using funds now for football versus investments/assets that will generate funds longer term.

What's more, these two plodders (not exactly on a par with the Jarrow Marchers, let's face it) were given heaps of air-time on 'Off The Ball' and were lauded for their efforts. Makes ya wonder, eh?

It does doesn’t it! 
I wonder why they treat us with such disdain, it makes me think that all the punters have caught their bursds being pumped by Hearts fans...I know at least one of them has 😇

Might be worth looking at their website.

It may be they want your mobile number to send activation codes to when you carry out a transaction.

I have that now with a credit card and work sign ins.

Frightening, the hand we’ve been dealt is enough to put you off football all together as well 


To be honest if we had accepted relegation I probably wouldn’t have been back.

 

I think the clubs decision to stand up and take on the SPFL has United the fans and made me eager to renew my season ticket.

I see a few on here have decided to cancel their Sky subscriptions and direct the money to FOH instead, which is a great idea.

 

I don't currently subscribe to Sky, but I am paying a hefty amount to Virgin Media each month.  When I look at what I'm paying for, it's a Full House TV bundle with over 200 channels, about 90% of which I've never watched in my life, and most of the channels I do watch are free to air anyway.  I've also got a broadband speed that far exceeds anything I realistically need.

 

So I'm going to get in touch and give them a chance to retain my custom.  Either they downgrade me to the basic bundle, and charge me same as they would a new customer, or I'm leaving completely.  If they agree to this, I'd save £51 a month, it's uncanny!  If they don't, I'll cancel with them and take out a broadband / line rental only deal with Plusnet or Now Broadband, where I would save up to £66 per month.  That would give me plenty cash to play with if I decided to pay for another TV service (I already subscribe to Amazon Prime anyway) and still leave a nice wedge to bump up my FOH pledge.

I'm reading ian Murray's book which arrived yesterday.  People who react negatively to Ann Budge or the FoH really need to read it first.

 

What an enthralling story.  I had no idea that FoH kicked off 18 years ago through two Jambo visionaries.

 

It all makes you very proud.  Was delighted that JKB has received several honourable mentions so far.

No worries, always a good idea to be cautious about these things. Hope it works out ok for you.

I always find it interesting that these threads have most contributors with paid member or the wee green donate logo, not so many with random generic names or single digit post counts. Just saying.

I’ll admit it I only pay £10 a month.


However, I did keep paying when my job was at risk, then I wasn’t paid for 8 weeks due to cash flow problems and then when I was unemployed due to liquidation for 4 weeks (due to the then Notts County owner/prick). Nearly 3 months in total. 
 

Now that I’m in a much better place, I’m looking to up my monthly DD. 
 

May even do a one off ‘cider payment’ on Sunday if Harrogate beat Notts! £51? 
 

Hearts fans. Love ‘em. 
 

:robboyas:

Well done, you still contributed when the chips were down for you …..  That`s what Hearts supporters do .
