Done…

 

 

I suppose there was meant to be some sort of symbolism put over by doing that so low key in the dressing room?

£12,343,698 now raised in total, £128,377 in the last month (£130,370 in July)

 

The club will see little of this month's money as £100,000 will go to Bidco as payment for the shares, plus all associated professional costs, also the video production expenditure etc.

 

The new governance model will also come into effect as of today.

The Newcastle one is an example of the most difficult imho, it'd take over 30 years for their fans to save up and buy the club and that's not factoring in that it'd not be like for like due to the north east being more deprived than Edinburgh meaning your average Joe wouldn't be able to put in as much as an average Hearts fan, they'll end up with nothing more than a token shareholding that influences nothing at board level, especially while fat mike is still in charge.

 

Completely agree, the most likely ways that fans are able to get their club fan owned is if they have an owner who just wants to get out of the club and will take a hit to do that, an owner who wants to hand it over cheaply, or the club almost goes out of business.

 

Premier league clubs are too valuable to owners who could make good money selling to another rich owner, fans like Newcastle united would need a ultra rich Ann Budge type who can buy the club on their behalf and the fans pay them back (even then they need the new owner to be prepared to take a big hit on what they paid.)

Yeah, fat mike has been looking for 250-300m for Newcastle, even if they got 40,000 fans averaging the same as us then it's still well over 25 years before they pull the cash together not to mention that they would no doubt have to replicate us in how we paused the purchase to fund the stand, they'd have to do the same as Newcastle's infrastructure, training ground etc are in a terrible nick for a EPL team.

Probably just Covid protocol perhaps as a larger space than the Board Room to squeeze journos and camera crews in

Just to show we're taking this ownership malarky seriously, can our first announcement be a picture of a big jobbie on a Hibs scarf?

 

 

 

 

PS. Well done everyone (including me).

Wonder if we'll see an increase in FoH supporters and monthly subs with ownership now passed over.  Fans who took the decision to withdraw funding until AB had signed ownership over.  Look forward to seeing the numbers in the coming months in the hope that we grow support.

Romanov wanted 40 or 50 million to sell if I recall. The only reason we were able to do this was because of the administration event.  It’s a risky strategy for any other take overs for big clubs  Rangers being the case in point for if it goes wrong  because Rangers fans were splintered they could not organise themselves to pull in the same direction. 
 

it’s a fantastic achievement

Just like owning a hoose, even though you’ve paid it up, it still needs maintaining !

So we have £130k a month extra. 

 

Get 7/8 players in on £10k a week. 

 

Get the league in the bag.

Sorry, never seen that.

I suppose there is that possibility. Be interesting to see how the numbers go in the following months. I think the vast majority will continue however.

Yip, entirely possible but i'd like to see FoH be more proactive in trying to grow the support.  Something simple like clear monthly reporting on the numbers could act as an incentive in the same way that the attendance thread on here seems to.  This is our club, it's our duty as a collective to help it grow.

In theory now is the best time to start pledging/up pledges. 100% going forward is the clubs money.

I think you have wrongly equated weeks to months.

 

7.5 players at £10k a week equates to £325k a month.

I really really hope that they (& any other club that chooses to go down this route) manage to get there one day. It’ll be 100x harder for some of the really big clubs to pull it off but getting football clubs away from these leeching, predatory types and back into the control of the people is necessary for alot of clubs futures outside of a select few I feel.

Is that just including everyone who's pledging now, or even has in the past, no matter if it was only £5?

Except those who emailed saying they wont continue to contribute because AB has stolen the club and will never hand it over 😉

I'd expect a big push to recruit more pledges once the transfer window closes.

There has been talk a while among politicial parties down south of bring in regulation where a certain percentage of the club must be owned by the fans. Now that will be something always talked about to get football fans to vote for policiticans, but it could be a big help in clubs achieving realistic ownership of the club (though I am sure billionaire owners will still find loopholes to have ownership.)

Plus employers Nat insurance and all the other freebies that players receive. Probably nearer £400k. 
Maybe Smithy was Vlad’s accountant?

Just curious, as surely a lot more than 8000 regulars have contributed what they could, when they could. So rightly, they maybe could expect their name to appear on the wall. It's no lesser a thing, if someone who loves the club contributes, but was unable to contribute more or have stopped, for whatever reasons.

 

In fairness, fitting more than 8000+ names on the wall, looks a bit of a squeeze anyway.

I assume that the "EST. 2010" on the tunnel wall relates to the original formation of FOH, i.e. some time before pledges were sought.
