Maybe, although I do think that the majority have accepted that they will be involved next season so want to just get on with it and hope it’s a better season. Everyone has a right to an opinion but it doesn’t mean it’s not tiresome to read it all the time. 

Can’t disagree. Some folk will always argue black is white and vice versa I suppose. Before the current bickering, it was Romanov etc etc. If the forum existed back in the day, there’d be folk bickering about Willie Ormond or whatever.

Season book. That takes me back. Tried to save carrying the book I'd pull the ticket out. Only to find when I got to the turnstile there had been a reserve game midweek. 

Lol! Happens to the best of us!!

I don’t think it’s a shit forum at all. Since I first used it back in 2009’ish people have always complained about it. You can probably only compare it to other football forums and there are none better that I’ve seen. 

 

 It's the most negative fans forum i've ever looked at. In trying to be open it allows people to drag it down. It's unreadable most of the time and most i know stay away because of that.

Tbf to the people being negative and I’m frequently one of them. We are the third to fourth best financed side in the country and have been completely shite for years. Being positive can look borderline idiotic at times tbh.

 I wouldn't have let Robbie Neilson on the bus after the Brora game. But i'm bored with every thread descending into a conversation about him. It's football, sometimes it would be nice to read about football and have a bit of a laugh. That used to happen, not any more though and most people are sick of it.

...as can being negative during close season when everybody knows that Robbie is safe in his job for the foreseeable.

 

All very tiresome and pointless.

PHM status returned, renewed mine and juniors tickets just now. Think because we still had £150 to pay from last seasons ticket(bought in 2 halfs), the TO managed to add that on to the phase 2 price!! Bonus!

Negativity is a tendency to be downbeat, disagreeable, and skeptical. It's a pessimistic attitude that always expects the worst. Negative outcomes are bad outcomes, like losing a game, getting a disease, suffering an injury, or getting something stolen
 

Recognise anybody?

So be positive because a manager most people know isn’t good enough is staying regardless? Like I said, being happy for the sake of it is borderline idiotic.

I’m sure you have a point but after using the word dissenters earlier I’m not sure I’m that interested in whatever it was.

I wandered into TO yesterday to check how much I gotta pay, never used any streaming etc last season but forgot to opt out, 315 now and 245 after the full price threshold I think she said. No bad

Probably been asked before but..

Is there any benefit to the club in not paying the full price for a ST but paying the same amount split over ST and FoH donation? 

You obviously get FoH points for a donation.

Could it be the case that if you take up the cheap offer, the club will be able to claim the difference as a loss, thus reducing tax liability? Then there's VAT: The club would obviously have to pay HMRC less from the cheaper price, and none from a FoH donation. I might be spouting utter crap, but if I'm not, taking up the offer would seem to be better for the club. :)

Good to know. Means more chance of Hearts supporters (you know people that support the club not individuals) getting to watch the team if there is a reduced capacity

£400 for ticket = £333.33 to club and £66.67 to Westminster

 

£200 donation to FoH and £200 (£166.67 net) to the club.

 

£366.67 - £333.33 = £33.33 club better off.

 

Guess they couldn't suggest that option 🙄

Suggesting that could be seen as a form of aggressive tax avoidance.

As a club and FoH they can't and shouldn't;  but .... in the meantime I'm going to use the money in my tax free ISA to pay for it 😉

Sorry if this has already been asked, but the thread is big and I don't want to spend half an hour trawling through it.  The full price ST deadline is June 10, after that it's the period for reduced price renewals.  I assume the option to pay full price if you would rather is still there after the 10th?  I want to pay full price, but won't be in a position to until the end of June.

Think coz we still had the balance to pay and I said we'd wait til phase 2 the TO were quite happy to setup the online price to phase 2 price so quite happy with it. Just want back bloody in.

It's not 100% clear, but seems likely.

 

The approach of having this window for full price only seems pretty sensible. Once people have decided to pay full-price, giving them the option of a ~£200 discount at the checkout is bound to be tempting for some. To encourage as many of those people as possible to renew at full price, it makes sense to imply that will only be possible for the first two weeks. But then when it opens up to discounted tickets the reverse becomes true. It is sensible to give those people the opportunity at checkout the opportunity to make a last-minute benevolent decision to pay full price. Equally, for people that wanted to pay full price but missed the first deadline, why would you stop them.

 

Of course, if I'm wrong and you can only pay the discount rate, as others have said you could make a one-off donation to FOH to make up the difference.

It would seem a mad business model not to let people pay full price if they wanted to.

I haven’t read every post but I guess Hearts would prefer cash rather that pay by card.

Dunno. 

 

Donate at least £350 to the FoH, get a free ticket to a Hearts game x19.

It's a good forum, but some folk are very boring and negative and as you try to invade every thread. 

 

If you put the really tiresome and aggressive types on ignore in general you get decent football chat and patter mixed in with reasonable debate that can be interesting and funny.

Sadly very true re current status of forum.  Didn’t used to be that way but has gone downhill remarkably in last two to three years. Very close to not bothering anymore.

Cabbages are claiming 9,000 sold.  To be precise, one brussel sprout is claiming that on .net.  Could be garbage but they have been on sale for ages.
