More comedy gold from the Mad Yin :greengrin


Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov has launched a vicious verbal attack on former club captain Gary Mackay, branding him a "parasite".
His outburst came after Mackay, now an agent, criticised the Lithuanian's meddling in team affairs and suggested he relinquish his control of the Tynecastle outfit.
The former fans' favourite recently stepped down as a matchday analyst for Hearts Media because he could no longer stomach Romanov's influence on playing matters.
The latest interference saw boss Jim Jefferies having to sideline Marius Zaliukas after the defender refused to sign a new contract.
That coincided with the Gorgie men crashing to a 2-0 SPL defeat against Motherwell and a 4-3 Co-operative Insurance Cup exit at Falkirk.
Romanov said: "I agree with Mr Mackay that a new owner is needed - to rescue the club from people like him and from those who live all their lives at the expense of football.
"I am tired of fighting the mafia and will be pleased to step down for someone who has the strength and hope to defeat it more than I do. Let the Great Saviour (Mackay) answer a question - has he ever bought a ticket for the game with his own money?
"I can understand his outrage. Perhaps due to the fact we have assembled a good management team he currently does not have a chance to steal players from Hearts or shove his players to the club - as parasites living at the expense of clubs begin to smell.
"A defeat at the time the club has brought together good players, has a solid pyramid of more than 60 footballers, and suddenly loses four goals, then two from weaker teams - it is a reason to start thinking that perhaps there may be a betrayal.
"We need to see if there were any of Mr Mackay's players involved in defence and how they played."
Meanwhile, Jefferies has urged his team not to resort to the long-ball game against Rangers on Saturday.
The Jambos have not won at home in the SPL since April and the boss said: "We don't want to see the ball lumped forward. That's why we play two wingers.
"You're asking them to get the ball wide and get round the back of the opposition. We don't want anything launched to Kevin Kyle from the back."

Vlad should stop FJK from playing any of the players that Mackay represents.

So that's Lee Wallace taken care of :greengrin

He's probably got his fingers in several pies at the PBS. Anyone know of any other players there that he looks after?

I don't believe Vlad is a mug by any means. He is a businessman and you can be sure that he will not walk away from Tynie without money in his pocket.

He also was one of the few to come out and have a direct go at the Glasgow mafia which runs the Scottish game and his comments regards Gary Mckay are not far of the target.

Hearts were very close to winning the league and yeah maybe Vlad screwed up of George Burley - you know the giddy heights.

In the end I prefer Rod Petries approach to the game which is cautious due to the current economic crisis in the game. I would still like to here of more young players coming in and would hope that HIbs can cast their net afar to get the best from even far away places.

I think as an investment opportunity the Yams are up there with sub prime mortgages. Nobody in their right mind would pump that much money into a football club and not expect to make an enormous financial loss. Vlad is proof of this.

Yet another example of the gulf in class between our clubs.

Can you imagine STF ever calling Lawrie Reilly/Pat Stanton/Keith Wright a parasite in the press?

Some pretty serious revisionism going on by our pink pals incidentally. Club legend Gary MacKay, diamond geezer who trains the Hearts youngsters through the summer has turned into another traitor.

They are all absolutely terrified of raising a dissenting voice to 'Mr Romanov', the forelock tugging going on is entertaining to say the least.

Not just getting at you Mussi but there's always talk of the ‘money Vlad has invested in Hearts’ but where? How much?

They spent / wasted a good few million on players but have made that back in spades from sales, albeit mostly different players. There have been debt for equity swaps that never seem to reduce the overall debt. There is the transfer of Tynie to offset debt AND still the overall debt, which the yams pay increasing interest on, is higher than its ever been!

Where is the investment?

My fag packet economics suggest something like £30m to £40m+ has been disinvested from the club.

Anyway what the madman says is absolutely true. Its just the way he tells ‘em. :faf:

Was going to post something similar, Jack. This so called 'investment' is nothing more than an urban myth. The folk that insist that Vlad is putting his hand into his own pocket to fund the club probably believe in djinn and flying carpets, too. Those are both myths, but equally believable.

Not only has Vlad trousered the transfer funds, he's also coerced the club out of many millions in 'registration fees' and openly uses the club to pay his UBIG jakeys.

To be brutally honest, there has been no investment. Never has been and never will be.

With your there. The man's a legend. 1) attacks the inbred mutants who run the game in Scotland 2) rips Gazza a new one 3) has Los Yambolinos over a barrel and siphons off every penny they make on ST's and transfer fees to a Lith conglomerate.

Apart from getting a high velocity rifle with telescopic sights and systematically taking out television presenters, 'celebs' and reality show contestants, preferably during filming of television dancing/talent shows, there's not really a lot else he do to raise his stock in this green little corner of Merchiston.

Correct.

The one thing I can't fgure out though is although they are taking in interest and fees they can't run from the fact that they are never going to get the capital back from the club.

My guess is that they genuinely felt it would be easier to come in, increase the debt a bit, win stuff and rake in some money as well as punting players on regularly and now they are in deep they have to keep trying to get something back long term.

"I moved into this new role in recent months and, given my experience at Hearts and indeed my previous experience as an owner and director of a successful business, I am looking forward to the challenge ahead"

Right, so the word "month" has an "s" on it, so that means at least two. So they have had a CEO in place for at least two months, and only now feel the need to tell people about it. And we are allegedly bad at communications. (to be fair, they have obviously been missing a PR guy for the same amount of time as the old PR guy was promoted to CEO)

I also like the fact he mentions his experience at Hearts AND a successful business. :wink:
