Deserves a new thread guys.


Why are they speaking to the fans as if they aren't "the fans".

Fucking idiots. Really giving away that they are just a servile wee board who sook the root. They are literally in charge of millions of pounds of fans money. Utter trash.

Not for the proper fans, just the fans that are in Budge's image. 

They can stick their donations up their arse.

Anyone with a bit of sense about them or not up Budgie’s hoop would have went for a statement pointing out donations have been mismanaged terribly by Hearts and calling for the transfer of power immediately with a new board to replace the current failed one, much less the need for changes in the dugout and on the pitch that also must happen.

That they served up that as a statement (breaking their shitebag policy previously of not commenting on first team affairs when the fans turned on Levein) is pathetic.

They’ll be losing loads of debits for their spinelessness and rightly so. Fuck paying for Budge to waste yet more money.

I don’t believe in it at all anymore.  It sounded like a really good idea and tbh if it was managed correctly it could be, but I just have no faith in it.

There’s no accountability, they’re taking the fans money and fucking about with it and when it goes tits up like we’ve seen over the past few years it’s not any of them that lose out.  They just put their palm out, expect to get more cash and hopefully it works out better next time.

I really want to know if Wallace is paid for his work or it’s voluntary because it 100% needs to be a full time position paid well to attract decent candidates and not just the best qualified hertz fan willing to do it.

I worked for an employee owned company and tbh I see so many similarities in where it fails and doesn’t work.  I think it’s just one of these things that sounds like a brilliant idea but in reality it doesn’t work out well.



Just to add as well, I think a lot of fans have complained that the FOH isn’t very vocal, just sort of coasts along and the minute fans start pulling their pledges in decent numbers suddenly they’re interested in communicating.

Does feel like Tuesday was some kind of tipping point where most folk have actively leant against Budge/Neilson and even foh. Actual relegation didn't quite do it I guess since we were 'chucked out' with 8 games left but losing to a Highland league team in a cup tie finally seems to have done it.

I believe it's entirely unpaid voluntary work by those involved. The guys involved are getting it tight but they didn't create or implement the governance document. A number of those involved at the outset have gone from FoH. Perhaps they could foresee what was looming on the horizon. Wallace gets it tight but I'm not sure on balance if he's to blame. Probably too close to Budge, but she's wanted to control FoH since she came into the club. Nothing about the FoH arrangement feels distinctly separate or in any way at arms length. She basically controls Hearts and FoH by extension.

She has pretty much ran the club and FoH as a financing arm as she's seen fit. The explanation in the Notes to Accounts pertaining to Related Party Transactions where its stated that the award of contracts awarded to JB Contract (Scotland) Limited went through the necessary commercial tender process is frankly an insult to the intelligence of our support at large. I firmly believe the FoH Board should've robustly challenged that award of works. A capital project overspend of well over £10M and she is awarding contracts of works to her brother to the cumulative value of £7M. He has a two bit Joinery business in Davidson Mains. Perhaps there was more to Scott Gardner stepping away than Budge giving him a smacked arse for the seats debacle.

I believe that Stuart Wallace is fully aware of supporter anger. I dont think he's in a position to influence anything. Despite the image that Budge likes to portray, she's every bit as much a megalomaniac as any owner we've had in the past 40 years. Perhaps the most in actual fact.

Interesting post.

I had heard some whispers of Budge's general attitude outwith footballing circles and it mirrors what we have seen during her time running the club.

Dunno if it's just me, but getting angrier through the week since the result. The Budge, Neilson and FOH statements have only underlined how unhinged our club is versus the fans.

Priority was a Police Scotland role in saying don't congregate, there's a pandemic. Skipped over our loss. The worst in the history of Scottish football. Making national news. 

I miss Vlad. He'd have emptied everyone that night down to the tea lady. Again our Board muse while passing the battenberg and looking down their noses at 'non genuine' fans.

Disgusting. Incompetent egomaniacs. Neilson out isn't enough. We need to sever all ties with Budge. Been saying it for years. FOH compromised, her PR arm.

Budge and her cohorts don't seem to have a clue about anything. Fuck me we've been shite for years and she changes manager, like for like. Why would you do that? Is it deliberate?

Good article here reiterating that Neilson is very lucky fans aren’t allowed in the ground this weekend, and noting how fucking incompetent the FOH are.

This is where I’m at.

Back in the Robinson days, I was outside the main stand protesting, missing the supporters bus home and then having to get the train as a result because it meant something.

I was genuinely worried that we were going to end up being the new Clydebank bouncing around from ground share to ground share while Tynecastle became flats.

Now I’m passed fucking caring, can’t be arsed to even put tomorrow’s game on the TV, never mind make any effort to attend, I know in the past we’ve all joked about how little we care and how we can’t be arsed anymore, but that apathy is genuinely creeping in and I can’t be bothered with Budge and Hearts anymore.

She’s stolen my club, our club, and is going to continue to run it into the ground due to her own fucking ego and I know best attitude. Fat Cunt

She’s treated us all like mugs and will continue to do so for as long as she’s involved. Monty Oh Well
