Sky Sports then for ST holders for  televised games even if limited capacity?

I think last year they let clubs stream those games to season ticket holders as well. The ST bumf doesn’t mention any exceptions.

Hope so. SKY might take a different line from the BBC. But if the ST bumf is right good.

Cognitive dissonance.

Sounds like Latin. Never learned that at Craigroyston.

As far as I am aware the club has not yet acknowledged his departure. They made a bit of a splash about his arrival presumably seeing it as a plus for a somewhat disillusioned support. I think it likely that the parting was not entirely amicable. Hard to explain the silence otherwise given some of the stuff that qualifies as news on the club site.

I heard from someone close to him that he walked but he’s not going to shout about it. He told them everything that needed to be done to fix the problems. It’s a closed ship. They hire their pals and people not up to the jobs. From the club set up to the academy it’s all going in the wrong direction. JJ wasn’t going to sit back and take their money if no one would listen to him.

From the Evening news......

 

With Budge ceding responsibility for day-to-day club business to chief executive Andrew McKinlay, Jefferies has chosen to step away from his consultancy position in what was an amicable parting.

Amicable parting meaning they want to do it one way and JJ wants to do it another so good luck to them. Maybe they will be right and JJ wrong. I know who I would put my money on. JJ went in there to do what was right for the club he loves, not for any benefit to himself.

Who on the Hearts Board, that JJ was advising, is pals with Joe Savage and William Lancefield?

Thirded. JJ is a legend and this feels inappropriate. He certainly wouldn't like this chat.

Exactly!! He gave everything to Hearts and the last thing we need is some non-Hearts low life twisting this thread so everyone is fighting and dragging JJ name through the same shit that their life must be in

JJ is a club legend, and always will be. But he is 70 year old, and his role was short term. Why do people need to look for scandal? Is it not natural that he has left and wants to enjoy his retirement.

I heard same but agree close thread as does more harm than good, I heard he was thinking of going a few days before it was announced.

Have Hearts ackwledged his departure thanked him and wished him best wishes? Whether he wants it or not the least I would expect of the club.

The club made quite a bit of his appointment to get fans on board at a difficult time. 

WTF is the problem with just  saying  thanks Jim?

JJ is a total Hearts legend mate and I have no insight into what has or hasn’t happened so I was just posting a comment from the evening news and hoping it was amicable. 
 

I’m happier when JJ is at Tynecastle.

His contract was temporary and up so it would be surprising if he hadn't been thinking about it.

Amicable surely means agreed parting. So why not some public acknowledgement of the parting?

One party wanting to to it one way and the other another way doesn't seem terribly amicable.

No Hearts supporter is looking for scandal. Some of those posting on here wouldn't know JJ if he sat next to them at a game. Just another shit stirring exercise.

The usual few stirring posters jump on and ty to tell us something is wrong.......how do they get away with it ?

 

So LF, FA AND CO you've had your chance to post nonsense and time to give it a rest but sadly you'll never change at the chance to put the boot into the club with little digs here and there

 

He is part of the changes that are taking place.  JJ gave us his time and experience and I thank him for that never mind his past efforts but it was not a major role this time and I don't think there needed to be marching bands and a parade when he left.........................when however some of you leave the board that will be a time to march along Princes Street giving thanks along the way

Jeez. Marching bands and parades? 

No just a few words on the Hearts site would have done.

That is all that was required. When nothing is said - it leaves a void or a doubt. There are those who are happy and willing to fill that void with rumours or lies. Of course they may be correct in that JJ was unhappy.

We dont know - which is the problem.

McKinlay does not seem to have a clue on PR. Do we have someone who is in charge of PR?

Even if JJ did walk away because he didn’t agree with how things were being run…..it doesn’t mean he’s in the right.

 

And he really can’t say anything about Savage giving people he knows a job…..JJ did exactly that his entire managerial career.

 

Anyone who signs Gary Locke and Lee Makel to play in the English Premiership is certainly no angel.

The English Premiership was a lot different 20 years ago when JJ was at Bradford.

Gary Locke was a very good player. Without his injuries he'd have played for Scotland. Did quite well at Bradford as I remember.

At the time of his transfer to Bradford…..Gary Locke was never in a million years good enough to be playing in that division. He only got the move because of JJ. He started 6 league games in 4 months…and was subbed off in the first half in two of those games

 

He actually barely completed a full 90 mins in the majority of matches in his shortish Bradford career.

 

He was unsurprisingly punted to Killie after Bradford finished 15th in the first division.


To say he did “quite well” is revisionism at its highest.

No idea, it wasn't easy so watch English games in those days, but 38 games and 2 goals at that level isn't bad after his injury troubles. Nice to see a Hearts youth player get a shot at the big time. He was heading for a really good career before his injuries, and still had a very solid one.

Disagree. He was very limited and you don't have to be very good to have played for Scotland.

Limited in what way? He was a defensive mid and did really well for us from a very young age and could have progressed to be a very good player if it wasn't for injuries. As I say despite terrible setbacks at a young age he still had a good career at a good level.
