if true then just another example of how poorly we have been run

 

queen Ann shrewd business women - queen of hearts

Yes she’s made mistakes but at the time she was the only one to put her own money into the club to save it and instead of acting like some owners in the past, she decided that fan ownership was the way ahead. It would have been so easy for her to keep the club under her ownership . According to a few on here the FOH contributions are not needed as the club is financially sound. Hence no need for FOH.

Ownership is a meaningless title now - FOH has no control (I'm not saying it should) and apparently little say, even though it is the major investor in the business. The fact is , it remains totally under *her* control and I see no accountability.

foh should be a nice to have something to give us an edge over Aberdeen and hibs (not that we normally need that)

 

yea she did great initially but let’s not forget the context that a large of amount of funds had already been raised by the fans plus they had demonstrated in the past the finances they could and would provide

 

in queen Ann’s own words she wasn’t going to “bankroll” it

 

Wallace Mercer put his entire family’s wealth on the line when he saved hearts for example

I’ve cancelled mine today and sent an email to the Foundation explaining my reasons.

I won't be cancelling mine today, tomorrow or any time.

I don't contribute because I expect us to win every game or even play well every week.

I don't contribute because I expect us to win anything.

I don't contribute because I expect us to sign top quality players.

I don't contribute because I expect to have a say in how the club is run.

I contribute because I will never forget the feeling of standing in a queue at Tynecastle, waiting to hand over cash that I could ill afford to part with at the time, because the team I have loved since I was a boy was very, very close to going out of business, because of how it had been run.

I will also be buying my season ticket the day they go on sale so that I continue to support the club that has given me some of the best days of my life.

I am not a Budge supporter. I am not a Neilson supporter but I bear them no ill will either. They will leave the club in time as everyone does.

I am a Hearts supporter, through the good times and more importantly the bad times.

If you choose to cancel your contribution, or not buy a season ticket then that is your right, I have no issue with that because that is your choice and we must all choose to do what we believe is right.

Results have been disappointing as have performances but with no fans in the grounds this whole season has been very, very flat, not just for us but for the vast majority of fans.

The treatment we received with being demoted was as low a point as a football fan that I can ever  remember, which ensured this entire season would be a negative experience. Beating Hibs was a rare high and coming so close to winning the Scottish Cup was a double edged sword. Pride in the display but bitter, bitter disappointment at the way it ended. We have endured a lot.

I wont celebrate winning the Championship, this is the season that never was for me.

Don't have a go at me for not joining the baying mob, I am keeping things in perspective.

As we ease our way out of this pandemic, I have great hope for the future and I'm just thankful that me, my family and friends are all here to see it.

The straw that broke the camels back in my case was when I found out that 1p in every 100p was spent on the girls team.  I cancelled that instant. I never signed up to fund that.  

 

Ann Budge has been taking the complete urine out of us for  along time, I feel now we are just being trolled.

All well said and understood. That is your choice as it will be many others.

 

The frustration is the millions of FOH money wasted on expensive flops and the unwillingness of HMFC Board to take quick action when things are clearly going badly wrong. Levein and now Neilson.

 

The only pressure we can bring to bear is send a message of protest by cancelling the FOH DD’s.

 

I think I speak for most in saying that they will be immediately re-instated when the Board get round to replacing the current Management Team.

 

Enough is enough.

I have no issue with the girls team existing - good on them, but not with my hard earned pennies.  

 

If I was in ASDA and they were at the end of the till packing bags and collecting I would go self scan.  

 

Not spending 1 pence on a bunch of young lassies to play football thankyou.

 

The whole idea of FoH was for us to get on our feet and create financial stability.

 

Budge has just spent it on luxuries since day One.

I can't really be bothered with women's football but it's pretty irrelevant. Outside the old firm, just about every manager in the country would be delighted to have the budget successive first team managers have managed to squander.

We can not pour 99% of money down the drain and fund the women’s team. There’s room for both.

 

Budge is just incompetent.

And yet we sit in a slightly precarious position in the second tier of Scottish football after Ann Budge has been driving us for 7 years.

Be a bit Ironic if Budge has to loan more money due to the Foh donations dropping and extends her stay to get payed back and see of covid.

 

Bet you none of the "I'm cancelling till I get Budge oot " thought of that scenerio.

I am sure many of us did think this through- and the irony is not lost.

Most of us have only halted payments temporarily.

Ann Budge will not like what we are doing - and this is the first strong message being sent.

If she does not make changes, she will get a stronger message when ST'S go on sale.

It is the only "weapon" we have until fans are allowed back in the stadium.

The alternative is to do nothing.

St sales will be fine. 

 

12k imo. 

200/300 folk left spewing sales never dropped to 4k or something. 

 

Covid will have a far bigger influence on St sales, across every club tho, that effect might be the issue 

 

And again, ironically if they drop drastically because of this,we go back to Budge for more loans so she stays longer to get paid back.

Whilst I'm grateful for her putting the money in to FOH, I'm also sure if a lot of us had 40 odd million lying about we would have done the same. I certainly would. She could not have kept the club under her control as she was a member of FOH and FOH got the preferred bidder status due to it being fan ownership. I also think those criticising FOH, myself being one, are doing so because they appear to be impotent and/or choose to do nothing. FOH contributions now and into the future should be in addition to normal monies taken in. If the club was financially better run FOH money should not be required for the upkeep of the club.

Agree with that model generally but it’s clear they are required at the moment due to impact of the pandemic.

And your plan guarantees instant success? 

 

What is the plan if Budge leave again? - If she wants paid, the covid financial gap is in line with other club expectations and last year's figures and how we fund this cracking new team that will be in place. 

 

I'm surprised every club doesn't implement this cracking new philosophy and plan.

Hats off to everyone who has cancelled/paused/reduced their subscriptions. Pissing off AB should not be our concern.
A good side playing decent football that the support can get behind will generate more income.

We’re a football club who should be self reliant on top three placings, European games and cup runs.

I have little interest in the women’s team but I have a daughter and 4 nieces. It’s the thought that they might want to play football one day and there will still be guys like that around. 
 

Not to worry though. People with that kind of mentality will be lost to the world in the next 15-20 years.
