On the original point- Roman did make a bit of a tit of himself. I'm in no way trying to back him up, but you did remind of something- When I lived in St.A's the officials of scottish football used to have a summer conference up there. (Really bizaare walking down to lab in the morning surrounded by...

Romanov's a lot simpler than everyone thinks, conspiracy theories abound on the terraces and media, but at the end of the day if he was ever going to make money from Hearts, he'd be far to clever to ever become involved in scottish football. Romanov, believe it or not likes football, and he likes to...

I know this has been done to death already, but I still think it would have been sensible to have the 2006 semi between Hearts and Hibs at Murrayfield, it would have let more people see it.

That's probably true. However, the issue is that Hearts are full of foreign players who couldn't give two hoots about them and the nature of the ownership of these players is in doubt. Who do these players owe their wages to? Hearts? Romanov? Kaunas? Ukio Bankas? When one of them is sold - such as ...

In Hibs' case the 'Leith Hibernians' were a new club formed after the original Hibernian folded in a short-lived attempt to continue the former club's role. The Hibernian of 1893 was technically a new club, but played on the same ground in the same green jerseys with the same name, and with some of...

To be honest, the Hearts squad is deplorable - a collection of unpronounceable Lithuanians and sundry offcuts that they haven't been able to sell. Yet. I didn't say it wasn't deplorable, I just said it wasn't worse than half the league, which is an entirely different matter. The standard of the Hea...

Re: Sub-1,000 crowds in the top division.

Ahem, I think you mean enough loyal Hearts fans to ensure a massive turn out! Is Vlad going to drive them there himself? Bet he's glad he promised the players before the Killie game that he was going to attend every match until the end of the season. Still, it's not as if he hasn't broken a promise...

Officially, the gate at Celtic Park was the largest of the season so far in the SPL. Having watched the highlights, there are spaces in every section suggesting alot more than 2-3k empty seats As for all-ticket at Rugby Park, such games are usually OF only and at the insistence of the police. Indee...

Re: Sub-1,000 crowds in the top division.

Either they will go under after the St Mirren match or if they do manage to struggle on to the end of the season there will be enough souvenir hunters and Hearts fans present for their last match to make sure the figure isn't too embarrassing. Ahem, I think you mean enough loyal Hearts fans to ensu...

They way Hearts dealt with this fixture was confusing to say the least, and no I'm not talking about 4 5 1. Away season ticket holders got their tickets through the post, the rest of us were told it would be pay at the gate. A few days before the game a rumour started to spread it had been made all ...

Thing is whether or not the money is due to them if they are only accruing more losses by continuing to trade then it suggests that the administrator is not acting in the best interests of the creditors. This could leave to fun and games if they go under. Mad Vlad wil be up for it- things are never ...

I wonder about the legallity of all this, as mentioned above the SPL are desperate to get Gretna to 33 games, but if they go bust before the end of the season does that not mean all there results are void anyway? More importantly if all the SPL are doing is forwarding money due to Gretna in the long...
