Agree with AP that the only way to do this is ramp up the pressure.

She's not going to do anything just because it makes sense.

How is sitting moaning about her on the internet doing? Oh aye, hammered 2-1 off Brora and the manager isn't going anywhere.

She sacked Levein because she actually saw the anger fans had outside her office window. It's almost as if she doesn't pay attention to criticism until it starts to affect her.

We all know how she works, she had said as much. She is financially motivated. If 5k fans didn't renew, Neilson would be gone.

She will always be a terrible owner, but the fan pressure worked once when she couldn't avoid it - if the annual income fell, she'd pay attention.

I’m not blaming any of it on the fans, the blame lies squarely at the feet of Levein and Budge.  You can surely see the only language she speaks is money though so don’t expect things to change or fans like us see any shred of change we want if every season 10k fans continue to buy tickets.

What do you think is going to change like? Laugh A bad owner is a bad owner. Easter Road was a ghost town most weeks when Petrie was running things and they just kept going backwards.

The frustration about fans supporting the club always come from folk who can't really be arsed so it makes them feel justified. Nowt wrong with that but it's total shite.

Rangers is the classic example of this, they only got rid of Green & the Easedale’s by showing their discontent.

They spoke of boycotts and all sorts of shit, but it never made a blind bit of difference. Same as Budge will only react if she gets put under pressure.

The two times she's acted, Cathro and Levein, was when the fans were properly raging at games.

For me she's the vindictive type that would strip the squad back to the bare bones if income dropped as a fuck you to the fans. I just don't see this epiphany moment from her that it all has to change and she starts making the right decisions. She's just utterly shite.

Smug statement along the lines of 'some of our more emotional fans were asking me to rip everything up and start again, but I bet they're feeling silly now!... I always kept faith in Robbie to prove the doubters wrong' when we scrape promotion is an absolute certainty.

There can't be any Hearts fans who can make an excuse for last night.

Whilst I want Budge out now, part of me is dreading the thought of a bunch of simpleton cucks taking control later this year.

Not a peep from the club yet but no doubt they'll be tweeting the latest meal deal from the mong lounge for easter Sunday later on.

He should be called in this morning and told to clear his desk, but what will happen is that he’ll be called in and told not to worry about last night and that he still has her full backing, no matter what. Woy

It’s a joke of a situation, knocked out both cup competitions by part time teams who have a fraction of our budget!!

He’s our very own Steve Bruce and Budge is playing the Mike Ashley role, no chance of a change any time soon and the fans treated like mugs yet again.

Can’t wait for the FOH to tweet out announcing people have upped their pledges again. Special

Actually fulfil the role you’ve been elected to do you sycophantic fucks!!

The annoying thing is is just about everyone can see right through Neilson, the league is wrapped up and now would be a great time to get an actual manager who knows what he’s doing with no connection to the club like we should’ve done first time round to assess the squad and be in a good place to make changes in the summer.

We all know how bad it needs to get for those changes to happen though and the most embarrassing defeat in our history won’t be that.  Not even convinced bringing in that type of manager really changes much with budge still being there but it’s the best we could do right now.

Stupidly he was given a 3 year deal so probably too expensive to get rid anyway.

Interesting itk post over the road.

Saying Budge and Wallace are besides themselves with anger at the criticism of them. And that there's a split at Tynecastle between people that know football. And people who don't.

All the statements saying we share blah blah. They don't. Neither can hide their almost dislike of Hearts fans. They just want money delivered from fans. In silence.

Once Budge is paid up FOH are the major shareholder and can rebuild the Board. But FOH themselves need rebuilt first. I've the same amount of confidence in them as Budge. 

The club is a total mess and it needs more than a new football manager to sort it. Everyone needs emptied.

Was just a comment on the Kickback thread about Budge and FOH. Caught my eye earlier today. I don't doubt it though.
