Hiya there,

My company are making a film about the FOH takeover (for the BBC). We are looking for good footage of the Romanov era.

Any things that spring to mind that sums up that period?

Cheers

Will the BBC not let you go through their archive?  Should be plenty of stuff.  That documentary they did about him for starters.

Did he not get a kilt for the 2012 cup final and get a fiw pictures of himself in said kilt on the top of Arthur's Seat. Got to be pictures out there.

 

Also his poem in the programme with a picture of him sitting barefoot on the beach was a classic.

BBC should have plenty of coverage of their sneering commentators and pundits espousing everything 'wrong' (in their misguided opinion) with the Romanov times.

The BBC can suck Romanov's massive Russki baws.

 

Constant low-level sniggering about him by some of their 'journalists' which more than crossed the line into xenophobia. He didn't help himself at times, but my god, the media in this country were quick to protect their succulent lamb when he threatened to replace it with some cabbage soup.

 

Perhaps you could do a compilation of articles and shows from the BBC and 'other respected journalistic institutions' that referred to him as 'Mad Vlad', or count up the number of times he was referred to as Lithuanian, for starters.

 

I hope your documentary paints a balanced picture of a flawed man who nonetheless brought joy to Hearts fans in the face of ridicule and xenophobia.

In 2007 Hearts issued a DVD called Hearts - The Pre Season Story, with the sub heading Get Closer to your Club than ever before!  Vlad, being Vlad, features being his usual controversial/wacky self.

This is clearly a very corrupt Lithuanian detective  investigating him so they can frame him for something.

 

Leave St Vlad alone you scumbag.

I run a small company and would like to take some time off. Do you fancy doing my job for me?

Love the boxing one.  One of the funniest yet most bizarre videos I have ever seen.

 

Nothing personal to the OP but I would not give the BBC the steam of my pish.

 

Surprised they are taking a second out of their busy schedule of man hating, box ticking, gender obsessing, race bating and minority pandering.

This did come to mind though - not sure there was ever a bowl of peanuts photo

"Under the headline “Monkeys go home”, Lithuanian Romanov launched a tirade on the Edinburgh club’s official Web site (www.heartsfc.premiumtv.co.uk).

 

“You are one step away from becoming human beings,” he said.

“Go and carefully have a look at yourself in the mirror. Don’t you see a human in it? Stop fighting for the values which the ex-captain of Hearts was fighting for.”

Romanov, who has made a number of rants since taking over the club, had officials hand out bananas and peanuts to the press before last weekend’s Scottish Premier League home clash with St Mirren.

 

He added: “Education and truthful information -- that should be your input to humankind.

“Your leader Mowgli is not taking bananas any more, now he is taking money for lies and untruthful interpretation.”

Romanov, told to quit by fans after the treatment of Pressley, ended the long statement by saying: “I beg you Mowgli, take the monkeys back to the safari park.” "

There are pictures of him sitting on a cow with the Edinburgh provost as well, which stick in the mind.

 

But the beach programme was the zaniest of all

Sorry bud, jumped in with both feet and hadn't read your post properly.

 

To answer your original question - have you got footage of Romanov holding the Scottish Cup? He did it twice, after all. Or perhaps fly-on-the-wall footage of him typing out his Mowgli piece? He might have been a reckless dreamer with limited patience, but he was our reckless dreamer with limited patience. I would hazard a guess that almost everyone with their name on the FoH shirt proudly stood and sang his name after we beat Aberdeen to split the OF in 2006. Good footage of 'that era' should also include the positives rather than some of the more 'out there' moments, if you are going to show respect to the fans and the club.

Our documentary sheds light on how evil straight white man Romanov failed to include any transgender or openly homosexual people onto his board. Indeed, evidence exists that he bought and sold black men for cash, effectively making him no better than a 17th century slave trader. Thankfully, Ann Budge came in and made the Hearts first team wear pink while employing Ian Cathro in an effort to ensure oppressed minorities were represented at SPL level.

Very worthy but lacking the drama of the Vlad story. Which I don't think has ever really been told in all its glorious and gory detail. . Many of the participants hid behind the "Confidentiality Clause" excuse but the chances of anyone being sued for breach of contract must now be rather remote.

We joke but I would not put it past them.  I would not trust these ***** to water a house plant let alone broadcast anything impartially.  Utterly despicable institution.

He did wear a kilt to the final in 2012. I was sitting maybe 4 rows in front of him at Hampden ghat day.

Were you able to spot whether he was observing the traditional Scottish dress code?

It really is that bad.

 

They keep rehashing old formats and failing too - they have nothing original in the tank.

 

Question of Sport with a panel that ticks all boxes and the Darling Buds of me that they have created new characters just to tick a box.

 

No shock that they will fail to hit the mark.

Dunno, but sounds mighty like he was also guilty of cultural appropriation. Worse than Hitler.
