James Anderson


Recommended Posts

Section Q

I think we can credit him with the new stand getting (nearly),finished. Twelve million donated to the club over the last four years couldn't have come at a more crucial time.

 

""The Edinburgh club received £11.75million in donations from benefactors since 2017 and Anderson has been the largest overall contributor. Now in his early 60s, he is due to retire as an investment manager at Baillie Gifford in April next year, which may allow him more time to devote to Hearts.""

When I was a bright eye'd and blushy tailed kid, I always thought I was going to be the guy who was filthy rich and pumping money in Hearts.

 

So thanks James, you stole my dream.

Very pleased to have this guy involved. Unlike the Romanovs or Robinsons, he seems genuinely interested in the big picture and is doing this entirely from a good place. 

 

Its really refreshing to see, even just having his time is invaluable. 

 

Hopefully we'll see the club really begin to kick on off the field. Budge has done really well to get things ticking there and perhaps we might see the club making even better use of its resources.

You'll just have to find some other way of spending your Euromillions jackpot.

Let me give you my email address...

And I know this will piss some people off - no prize for guessing who’d be no1 - but AB has played a huge part in this. She has used her contacts to hearts benefit - keep them coming!!!

It certainly will . You'd like to think these people could actually see how incredibly anti Hearts their attitude is .

Of course they won't

Careful, you're getting awfully close to posting facts that some people just can't bring themselves to acknowledge.

Used her contacts to get a lifelong loaded Jambo to put money into the club for no return yet she wants all her cash back?

A gentleman.

 

He did not get anywhere near the credit he deserves donating all the money to the other clubs for covid testing.

 

We are lucky to have him involved.

It’s typical of us to get some real investment and end up ****ing relegated tho :lol:

Nobody can argue with this. Mrs Budge has made mistakes but this isn't one of them.

If we start getting it right on the pitch then everything else just melts away.

 

I'm desperate to see Hearts function to our capacity or near to it. Hasn't been the case for a number of years now but looking forward is really the only option.

 

It's all there waiting for us to grab it.

 

C'mon the JT's.

A lot of posters on here have said that Hearts are now too "nice" under Mrs Budge's stewardship.

 

I don't know anything about James Anderson, but does anyone else think that he wouldn't be so involved with Hearts if we weren't "nice".

He's a lifelong supporter.  Why not?

Can I ask, apart from being outrageously generous over the years to us, what is it he can do for us? I know that he’s an absolute genius in the investment world and will be fantastically well connected in the upper echelons, so what is it that we as club can get out of him apart from his amazing monetary input. You’ll realise I have zero business nous.

Yes, she believes in only paying what a person is worth!

 

 

Only joking. She has made big mistakes but always tries to do the right thing.

I can taste those tears.

 

It must hurt you to be so bitter, never giving credit where it is due and always putting the boot into the club.

 

The cretins on Hibs.net are less obsessed than you are.

I don't credit her for Andersons investment no. I'm sure it's been said on here it was more to do with something else.

 

But let's just praise "queen" Ann for everything.  :lol: Romanov at least was successful.  Millions have been wasted on and off the pitch remember.

She has both yes.  Wasted a clean platform and squandered millions with no success at all on the pitch.  Let's no overcoat that as we are, ultimately a football club.

Don't think it is fair to compare Budge to Anderson.

 

Budge stepped up and helped restructure everything into what it is now, on and off the pitch. Sure Levein got free reins to **** it all up in the end and Budge not the best with football decisions but given the state of the club after admin I think the initial couple of years under Budge were fantastic and she deserves praise for bouncing the club back. Just a shame the latter years were a fair bit more sour...

 

I am very looking forward to what Anderson will bring to the table and since he is retiring from his professional job, he might just get that bit more hooked on Hearts and the potential there is to break the duopoly.
