I have met Ann Budge on several occasions and she's an intelligent, successful, honourable business woman and a Hearts fan to boot. She has clearly been played by certain individuals and made a lot of mistakes but I am amazed that you dislike her. Why is that?  She cares and has done her best and I certainly wish her well in retirement and thank her for stepping up when nobody else did.

I will thank her when she steps aside.

Can you explain what you are getting at with her being played by certain individuals.

Of course. I am thinking of Levein constantly being backed and his mantra that he knew how to fix things when he did what he was good at in talking a good game. I get the impression that she can't wait to get out although I am not related or in the know.

...no idea why theyve become particularly associated with Manchester.

I have walked past a thousand times and never noticed that but I will look out for it in future.

Why though?

 

 

Because, like 99% of all Jambos I couldn't give the slightest **** about their team?

 

 


Thoughts on their impressive 6-0 defeat today?

I will continue paying my subs to the FoH until the day I die. Irrespective of who the manager is or how we are playing under him I’ll continue because I love my club more, much more  than I could ever loathe the person in that vital position as manager. I will forevermore be grateful to RN as player of Heart of Midlothian but as manager we are boring as F....

 

I have followed Hearts home and away through thick and thin since the early to mid 70’s and like everyone from my era and beforehand we’ve seen just about everything that could be thrown at us.

 

Initially when I started watching Hearts we couldn’t beat our rivals across the city for love nor money. Indeed it must have been around 8-10 derby matches before I finally saw Hearts beat them at last “but boy it was worth it” Now we own them and if we played them on the moon in an hours time we’d win because it’s what we do now.

 

Seeing Hearts in Europe  for the first time when we overturned a 2-0 away loss to Lokomotive Leipzig in Germany. The odds were stacked against us in the return but we did what we do “we rose from the ashes and hammered them 5-1 in the 2nd leg providing a night I’ll never ever forget. Since then to name a few, we’ve had some memorable occasions in Europe such as Bayern Munich, Stuttgart, Atletico Madrid, Basel, Liverpool, Bologna etc etc etc. And then again we’ve been embarrassed by diddy  teams such as  the Maltese team whatever they were called and a few others when we let ourselves down too.

 

In the cup, well that’s another story once again. I was 36 before I saw Hearts win a major trophy “I believe it was a brilliant day as I’ve been told so but in truth I was so pissed it was just a blur”  At other times in the cup however, there has been  disappointment upon disappointment while losing to the likes of crappy wee teams such as Forfar, Brora and Hibs “ all totally unacceptable but that’s Hearts for you”

 

On the other hand we’ve had some wonderful times in the cup. Beating Celtic in the semi and especially in that fashion with a last minute penalty deciding the game. Well I thought it couldn’t get any better at the time but I was wrong, so wrong and the final against them will live with me forever and ever and ever 5-1.  Before this of course was the magnificent win v Rangers to get the monkey of our backs and wow what an experience that was. Mixed feelings amongst most of our fans to determine which experience was the best between 98 and 12 but for me it’s the 5-1 all day long. Beating Gretna was also such a joyous occasion and while it was only Gretna “it was the cup and it was ours again”

 

I won’t talk too much about the League cup for obvious reasons so......................🙁

 

During the mid 70’s - 1982/83 season Hearts were literally a yo yo team. Relegated for the first time in our history in 76 then promotion then relegated again before promotion then bloody relegated again before being stuck in the Division 1 for 2 seasons before we managed to consolidate our position in the Premier League for the first time in what seemed like an eternity. During those years we lost in the league to teams such as East Stirling, Queens Park, Clyde, Dumbarton 5-2 at Tynecastle etc etc etc.

 

But then came along a man who transformed Hearts again. He put us on the map getting us positive press release after positive press following a very long period whereby the most press Hearts ever got was a tiny piece on the inner pages of selective newspapers. This man got us back page news, the whole page, good news stories and this man was WALLACE MERCER. 
 

Under the great stewardship of WM Hearts signed the great duo of wee Doddie (Alex MacDonald) & Sandy Jardine as players and managers and we never looked back again. We had a really encouraging season on our return to the PL in 83 winning our first 5 games on the bounce. The feel good factor was back and the fans began to rally once again. 
 

Good times were returning and our momentum continued eventually throwing us into season 85/86. WOW what a blast that was. I remember attending the first game of that season at home to Celtic a game that eventually finished 1-1. We had been much the better team for the vast majority of the game, were leading 1-0 with 1 minute to go thanks to a goal from debutant no.7 JC and then out the blue they scored.
 

I left that game feeling so excited for the season ahead. We then lost at Ibrox 3-1 the following week and I thought here we go again “another false dawn” A hammering in Paisley by 6-2 the next again week and now I’m thinking relegation again ffs. Hibs next at Tynecastle and thank God it was them as we got our customary victory albeit by only 2-1 to take a wee bit pressure off at the time. The next 4 games were very up and down AND THEN it all changed. A few really good results brought confidence to players and fans alike and we never looked back again. The belief that we’d win took us to Pittodrie/Tannadice/Parkhead/Ibrox and we beat all of these teams who at the time we’re excellent sides. We were back, taking thousands on our travels and though it all ended in tears “it was an incredible journey and like so many others I was an incredibly proud Jambo. Yes there was huge disappointment that we didn’t win the league in the end and the cup final the following week was just the icing on a very poisonous cake. But the whole experience that season was one I’ll never forget and one which I wouldn’t want to forget either as it made me realise what highs and lows being a Hearts fan is all about and I couldn’t have been prouder if we’d won both.

 

Since then we’ve experienced so much I’d need to write a book to cover it all. The Romanov years stand out though as being gloriously harmful What a journey carrying players like Takis and Rudi along with our Scottish players such as Gordon/Pressley/Sir Paul Hartley to name but a few fantastic footballers. Of course we paid the price for this and administration followed.

 

The ugliest and most painful period in Hearts history was now upon us but thanks to the efforts of some wonderful individuals and the unbelievable generosity of of all fans who have contributed to the FOH we are pretty stable as a club.

 

Im not turning my back on Hearts after all these years, not now not ever. Too many brilliant experiences I’ve endured  and way too many bad one’s too unfortunately to change now. I’m not saying we should just roll over and accept getting turned over in the cup by non league teams. I’m not saying we should accept getting pumped by the likes of Alloa/QoftheS/ etc drawing with Arbroath/Morton etc is acceptable either because they’re BLOODY NOT.

 

I’m saying that by continuing to contribute towards the FOH you’re contributing towards Heart of Midlothian. Ann Budge and Robbie Neilson will leave soon but Hearts will continue. The more who contribute the stronger we become. Hearts football is boring just now but the next man that takes the helm might just be another wee Doddie or Sandy Jardine or a JJ for that matter. 
 

Hearts are beating now and the more contributions the faster it will beat. Only a short time ago I honestly thought we’d died. For those reasons I’ll continue to contribute to the FoH as this is the future and I urge anyone who can to contribute too and help make Hearts stronger. Remember like everyone else Robbie and Ann are just passing through but HEARTS are here to stay.

Remember like everyone else Robbie and Ann are just passing through but HEARTS are here to stay.

And as soon as Neilson is gone , I will start my £51 per month again.

Maybe if we get relegated, sign absolutely shite players, get pumped out the league cup by Alloa and knocked out the Scottish cup by non-league Brora Rangers who hadn't kicked a competitive ball in months.

FFS, this isn't just a case of throwing the toys out because of a bad result or two.

this has gone a bit beyond unhappy. If the club make logical decisions it won’t happen. 
 

Any other club with ambition would have sacked the manager after cup exits to Alloa and Brora.
 

Our club don’t make normal decisions at the right time, they FORCE the hand of the fans

No - but this is over 5 years of Mismanagement and decline. They are deaf and blind to the feelings of supporters so it is my only way of registering protest.

 

It will never be this bad again , so no I won’t stop it again unless the current management stay in place and continually screw up.

I will continue paying my subs to the FoH until the day I die. Irrespective of who the manager is or how we are playing under him I’ll continue because I love my club more, much more  than I could ever loathe the person in that vital position as manager. I will forevermore be grateful to RN as player of Heart of Midlothian but as manager we are boring as F....

 

I have followed Hearts home and away through thick and thin since the early to mid 70’s and like everyone from my era and beforehand we’ve seen just about everything that could be thrown at us.

 

Initially when I started watching Hearts we couldn’t beat our rivals across the city for love nor money. Indeed it must have been around 8-10 derby matches before I finally saw Hearts beat them at last “but boy it was worth it” Now we own them and if we played them on the moon in an hours time we’d win because it’s what we do now.

 

Seeing Hearts in Europe  for the first time when we overturned a 2-0 away loss to Lokomotive Leipzig in Germany. The odds were stacked against us in the return but we did what we do “we rose from the ashes and hammered them 5-1 in the 2nd leg providing a night I’ll never ever forget. Since then to name a few, we’ve had some memorable occasions in Europe such as Bayern Munich, Stuttgart, Atletico Madrid, Basel, Liverpool, Bologna etc etc etc. And then again we’ve been embarrassed by diddy  teams such as  the Maltese team whatever they were called and a few others when we let ourselves down too.

 

In the cup, well that’s another story once again. I was 36 before I saw Hearts win a major trophy “I believe it was a brilliant day as I’ve been told so but in truth I was so pissed it was just a blur”  At other times in the cup however, there has been  disappointment upon disappointment while losing to the likes of crappy wee teams such as Forfar, Brora and Hibs “ all totally unacceptable but that’s Hearts for you”

 

On the other hand we’ve had some wonderful times in the cup. Beating Celtic in the semi and especially in that fashion with a last minute penalty deciding the game. Well I thought it couldn’t get any better at the time but I was wrong, so wrong and the final against them will live with me forever and ever and ever 5-1.  Before this of course was the magnificent win v Rangers to get the monkey of our backs and wow what an experience that was. Mixed feelings amongst most of our fans to determine which experience was the best between 98 and 12 but for me it’s the 5-1 all day long. Beating Gretna was also such a joyous occasion and while it was only Gretna “it was the cup and it was ours again”

 

I won’t talk too much about the League cup for obvious reasons so......................🙁

 

During the mid 70’s - 1982/83 season Hearts were literally a yo yo team. Relegated for the first time in our history in 76 then promotion then relegated again before promotion then bloody relegated again before being stuck in the Division 1 for 2 seasons before we managed to consolidate our position in the Premier League for the first time in what seemed like an eternity. During those years we lost in the league to teams such as East Stirling, Queens Park, Clyde, Dumbarton 5-2 at Tynecastle etc etc etc.

 

But then came along a man who transformed Hearts again. He put us on the map getting us positive press release after positive press following a very long period whereby the most press Hearts ever got was a tiny piece on the inner pages of selective newspapers. This man got us back page news, the whole page, good news stories and this man was WALLACE MERCER. 
 

Under the great stewardship of WM Hearts signed the great duo of wee Doddie (Alex MacDonald) & Sandy Jardine as players and managers and we never looked back again. We had a really encouraging season on our return to the PL in 83 winning our first 5 games on the bounce. The feel good factor was back and the fans began to rally once again. 
 

Good times were returning and our momentum continued eventually throwing us into season 85/86. WOW what a blast that was. I remember attending the first game of that season at home to Celtic a game that eventually finished 1-1. We had been much the better team for the vast majority of the game, were leading 1-0 with 1 minute to go thanks to a goal from debutant no.7 JC and then out the blue they scored.
 

I left that game feeling so excited for the season ahead. We then lost at Ibrox 3-1 the following week and I thought here we go again “another false dawn” A hammering in Paisley by 6-2 the next again week and now I’m thinking relegation again ffs. Hibs next at Tynecastle and thank God it was them as we got our customary victory albeit by only 2-1 to take a wee bit pressure off at the time. The next 4 games were very up and down AND THEN it all changed. A few really good results brought confidence to players and fans alike and we never looked back again. The belief that we’d win took us to Pittodrie/Tannadice/Parkhead/Ibrox and we beat all of these teams who at the time we’re excellent sides. We were back, taking thousands on our travels and though it all ended in tears “it was an incredible journey and like so many others I was an incredibly proud Jambo. Yes there was huge disappointment that we didn’t win the league in the end and the cup final the following week was just the icing on a very poisonous cake. But the whole experience that season was one I’ll never forget and one which I wouldn’t want to forget either as it made me realise what highs and lows being a Hearts fan is all about and I couldn’t have been prouder if we’d won both.

 

Since then we’ve experienced so much I’d need to write a book to cover it all. The Romanov years stand out though as being gloriously harmful What a journey carrying players like Takis and Rudi along with our Scottish players such as Gordon/Pressley/Sir Paul Hartley to name but a few fantastic footballers. Of course we paid the price for this and administration followed.

 

The ugliest and most painful period in Hearts history was now upon us but thanks to the efforts of some wonderful individuals and the unbelievable generosity of of all fans who have contributed to the FOH we are pretty stable as a club.

 

Im not turning my back on Hearts after all these years, not now not ever. Too many brilliant experiences I’ve endured  and way too many bad one’s too unfortunately to change now. I’m not saying we should just roll over and accept getting turned over in the cup by non league teams. I’m not saying we should accept getting pumped by the likes of Alloa/QoftheS/ etc drawing with Arbroath/Morton etc is acceptable either because they’re BLOODY NOT.

 

I’m saying that by continuing to contribute towards the FOH you’re contributing towards Heart of Midlothian. Ann Budge and Robbie Neilson will leave soon but Hearts will continue. The more who contribute the stronger we become. Hearts football is boring just now but the next man that takes the helm might just be another wee Doddie or Sandy Jardine or a JJ for that matter. 
 

Hearts are beating now and the more contributions the faster it will beat. Only a short time ago I honestly thought we’d died. For those reasons I’ll continue to contribute to the FoH as this is the future and I urge anyone who can to contribute too and help make Hearts stronger. Remember like everyone else Robbie and Ann are just passing through but HEARTS are here to stay.

From what you say I must be 10 years older than you so can relate to your excellent resume of supporting Hearts over 5+ decades and while I respect, indeed admire, your passion for the club by continuing to donate to FOH,  I fundamentally disagree with you. I too have supported the club through “thick and thin” but I defy anyone to disagree with me when I say there is complete disconnect between the club (we love) and the supporters. You say Budge and Neilson will leave soon - how do you know this, indeed at this time I don’t think Budge is going anywhere. I’m a season ticket holder, shareholder, subscribe to Hearts TV, buy merchandise and donate a significant sum to FOH each month. The club has stabilised since FOH was set up and I thought that by continuing my payments it would help Hearts to have the “edge” over Aberdeen, Hibs etc .....fat chance! I’ve now stopped my monthly payments as I feel I am simply pouring my money down a big black hole. There are several posters on here who seem to suggest those people who have stopped their pledges are not true supporters, one guy told me to simply go away. I consider myself as loyal a supporter, over nearly 65 years, as most, but I am not prepared to throw my money away anymore. It’s not just the manager that needs replaced but the entire management structure from boardroom down. If, and it’s a big if, that happens I will recommence my pledges, plus those that I have cancelled. I am not holding my breath.

I've stopped throwing money into FOH and obviously people  can & will make their own choice in the matter. But that statement makes it loud & clear to Budge just how disaffected supporters are. 

Loyal , long suffering fans have had enough  - and I speak as a supporter of 54 years.

We beat a part time team who are getting relegated 6-0 at Tynecastle and all of a sudden that arrogant turd has turned into Pep/Koop.

 

No thanks, even in victory he’s still an ungracious arrogant turd.

 

No more until he’s gone
