Was Budge not pretty instrumental in the creation of FOH?  That’s something that if managed well could properly be used to have us competing at the top (obv outside OF) for years with the money it will put in to the club.  

Football side of things has been disgraceful.  The romanov relegation was embarrassing but it was in pretty dire circumstances for the club.  There’s no excuses at all for why we are in that position now.  It doesn’t even matter what could’ve happened in those last 7 games because it should’ve been dealt with about 2 year ago.

1st season was so good as well Warnock

Not a go at you btw before you start, just something i see loads of and I cant think of anything worthwhile


I'm no fan as you can probably tell but I think generally she has tried to put in place positive things to increase revenue; merchandising, fans bar, better facilities (I know that's debatable and they should have been far better especially given expenditure), some of the youth initiatives and trying to be balanced I think marketing etc is better. But we are football club and the buck should always, always stop with first team performance. It is no exaggeration to say ours has been a complete disgrace, it's actually difficult to deliberately underachieve and fail as much as we have given the advantages we have over most of the opposition.

Was she fuck Warnock It was Alex Mackie and that, they made an initial offer of £300k or suhin for the club that HMRC came calling for that put us into admin.

Think she only got involved when it was clear we were needing millions

Fair enough didn’t realise she wasn’t involved from the start.

Think she has put the foundations (Smug) in for the club to do well in the future but in the short term the football has suffered horrifically for it. Glad she’s going soon as would be good for the club to get back to focussing on the football, last few years have just been an utter circus.

Pieman was a bad guy with bad intentions whereas Budge is more hapless. Think it's a bit of arrogance from her as well that she's been a successful business woman so she thinks she knows best how to run a football club.

And here's where the rounded argument on it comes out; the positives.

Pieman continued and facilitated the building of three stands, won a scottish cup and had us challenging near the top of the league regularly.
Romanov gave us two scottish cups and had us challenging at the top of the league bringing in the best players to play at the club in the modern era.
Budge loaned the money to save the club. Won the championship. Built a very expensive, largely underwhelming stand. Made Perry Kitched captain.

On a plus/minus scale, she's a distant third.

Pieman also tried to sell the stadium and nearly put us into Administration only for the fans to have to bail us out. Romanov was the same. 

Budge’s on field success is obviously dwarved by those two, but she did help “Save our Hearts” as cringey as it sounds. Romanov also helped Save Hearts but he also nearly killed us aswell.

I'd say the Budge era was worse because of the fans. Pieman was treated with deserved contempt. Because fan ownership is following this regime, the majority of fans are happy to lap up all the shite Budge has given us.

Agree regarding her holding the fans in contempt but quite funny that it's a contentious issue when just about everyone on here will never tire of telling you how much they hate Hearts fans Monty Chuckle

Pieman was worse imo, because he would've destroyed the club and, for all that it's a cliché, Budge saved it. Everything she's done since the first year has been terrible, but still not on Pieman's level.

Moving to Murrayfield would have finished Hearts off imo. Pieman was worse.

Correct. There should be an argument over it. 

1. Romanov
2. Mercer








3. Budge
4. Pieman

Robinson was by far the worst owner we've had.

Bad man with bad intentions, surrounded by equally bad men who only had their own bank balances at the forefront of their minds.

Budge is just a senile OAP who has sporadic moments of ... clarity.

Robinson was a cunt.

Budge is a useless, arrogant old fool who got rag-dolled by the old boys club. She should slink back to her whist circle so we can move on.

Mercer was a Tory cunt. But he was our Tory cunt and he was marvelous. He ruled Hibs with an iron fist and should never have taken his boot off their neck.

Mr Romanov was a poet warrior, who gave me some of the best Hearts supporting days of my life, and I miss him more with every passing day.
