    Theyíre clearly have more priority than anyone walking in and trying to book, but once itís booked, they have to wait their turn. There was an occasion a couple of years ago when wanted priority over a university booking and were knocked back. It was during the time that Locke was the manager. When we build our full size indoor pitch it will ours whenever we need it.
    Donít get me wrong, Iím not questioning the benefits of us owning our own facilities by any means, I just think that of all the things that there are to laugh at Hearts for, their use of HWU facilities isnít really one of them

    Iíve no idea what hold the Jambos have at their training facility now, but, at the risk of raking up old ground, I was always confused by their Ďcheatingí Herriot Watt University out of rental fees for Riccarton. Is it not the case that, as Herriot Watt is a publically funded institution, HOMFC was actually defrauding the Scottish taxpayer and not Herriot University. If that was the case, it astounds me that they were so readily welcomed back without any redress for their previous cheating and dishonesty.

    How? A self proclaimed massive club and they don't even own their own training facilities?

    Fantastic reason to laugh at their delusion of grandeur

    Heriott Watt Sports Village Ltd was a creditor, think they are a private company

    Shareholder list in said company available?

    I think you will find there was public money in there somewhere.

    The redress was a substantial increase in the annual rent.

    As an aside did we ever get to the bottom of the SFA involvement in facilitating Heartsí presence there?

    No we didn't. and the statement Hearts put out recently when the new stands went up at the Oriam only added suspicion to fancy footwork over the use of these facilities.

    Can't remember the statement exactly but I am sure one of our techies can provide a link.

    Pretty sure it was public funded, as in the UNI got its cash from the state.

    Iím not talking about Hearts claiming anything.

    Im saying that given there is a strong Hearts presence in certain sections of the Oriam that it can be suggested that their relationship goes beyond being just another passive customer that has to wait itís turn.

    I was being flippant.

    Never forget how the yams stiffed publicly owned organisations, private businesses and charities alike. Heriot Watt should have told them to get stuffed after they went into administration.

    Heriot Watt (note the one r. It is not a vet school!) is not a public organisation. None of the Universities in Scotland are. It receives money from the Scottish Government for specific services but so do loads of private sector organisations. Around half funding comes from non-governmental sources.

    It was certainly either Heriot-Watt or Oriam who were defrauded not the Scottish Taxpayer as the loss came off their budget and was not made good by Government.

    They were obviously very lax in allowing the crooks to build up a debt before going bust.

    I think Heriot watt are a registered charity are they not?

    Not that the Yams would ever think about doing charities out of money...

    If they had done that, who would have replaced them as clients? A commercial decision had to be made.
