What a legacy to leave - an unfinished, massively over budget stand and stuck in the first division. 

I also struggle to remember Hibs finishing ahead of us any more than one season in a row before she came in - it'll be at least 4 years in a row now Monty Oh Well

They haven't finished above us two seasons in the trot since 1994.

They haven't finished above us three seasons in the trot since the 70s.

Step forward Ann Budge and respect the rivalry.

Thinking about it overall, what a staggering time her tenure has been.

Bending over and allowing hibs to give us it dry far too often. Completely reversing nearly 40 years of complete and utter dominance. Cosying up to them and their owners, respect the rivalry and all that utter bollocks.

A half baked, unfinished shit show of a main stand that somehow went more than double the original cost and her fucking brother was top boy during construction and pocketed millions off us.

Lying constantly about how and when the stand would be open/finished.

Giving her family jobs in the corporate/hospitality side of the club.

Overseeing a raft of nearly 100 signings, blowing staggering amounts in wages, signing on fees and agents.

Only managing to qualify for Europe once despite the third biggest budget in the league.

The indignity of the worst European result in our, and indeed Scottish football history, with a defeat off an unknown Maltese diddy outfit.

One of the worst ever results domestically in the clubs history, losing 2-1 to Peter-fucking-head.

The embarrassment of exiting the league cup group stages despite being the only top flight side in the group.

Allowing hibs to finally end their cup jinx on her watch.

Constantly going to war with the fans.

A business model so rubbish that without the aid of some sort mysterious benefactors we would be making huge losses.

All this and we're in year six of an alleged five year plan. There's undoubtedly more but that's all I can think of off the time of my head. Back to where we started. She should be embarrassed.

Misleading stat. Hibs are shite and always have been. 

We would’ve finished above them in 12/13 if it wasn’t for a points deduction - they also got relegated that season. 

We finished above them in 13/14 and skooshed the league. 

We finished an entire league about them in 14/15 and 15/16. 

We haven’t finished above them in the past two seasons and this one hasn’t been completed so who knows.

Lawell and co all on the phone to each other pissing themselves.

Deary me.

She's like a wee old granny getting robbed blind by her carers and strung along like a puppet. We are a joke club and have been for years.

TH accepting relegation ages ago. Anyone that’s been in Scottish football could see this was a stitch up. I have no understanding why We dropped our threats of legal action to head up a “taskforce”. The fact the relegated club was leading it meant it was one of many reasons why it was fucked from the beginning. It just looks like a self interest group so you’ll get little support.

she should have immediately joined up with partick thistle and went the legal route. It’s actually beyond belief how naive she is. Her mate dempster told her there was interest in reconstruction so she cracked on with it and left us fucked.

Hats off to Dempster, she’s spent years playing Budge like an absolute fiddle.

I mind she stood beside Budge for a photo op about some issue then went on Talksport and ripped the pish out of her a few hours later Warnock

Does anyone think Budge will ever take responsibility for her stewardship of the club? If she ever does an interview again, someone needs to really nail her ( Levein) down and get her to take some responsibility for the shambles she has left us with on the pitch.

The Pieman.

Public enemy number one during my early teenage years, but despite the end of his tenure fuck me was his better than Budge's.

Oversaw the rebuild of Tynecastle (not just one fucking stand)

Appointing Jefferies

Three cup finals

The 98 cup final one (one of the biggest and best days in the clubs history) 

European football on multiple occasions

Built the training ground, one of the best in the country, in conjunction with HW.

All of the above pisses all over Budge. Yes his reign ended in disaster, and I fucking despised him, but it's a prime example as to knowing to quit while you're ahead. An example to show that you can't be lauded and revered forever like some would with Budge. There comes a time when good will justifiably runs out and people are entitled to ask the pertinent questions. The fucking morons in our support that wouldn't see or hear a bad word against her.

Get her so far to fuck.

You're a year off there, it was 13/14 we went down.

12/13 was the McGlynn era Monty LewLew
