Absolutely, I want Scottish football and more importantly Hibs to be inspired by German football - fan ownership and clubs being backed by the fans. As a club we need to start doing well in Europe and get better sponsorship deals and create a bigger profile. I think it was revealed that Scottish football gets less than the Austrian league for TV, that is a worrying prospect for all clubs in Scotland. I hope more fans start to sign up to HSL in order to facilitate a move towards consistent performances in the domestic trophies (3rd-5th at least every season, challenging for cups) and ability to stay in Europe Competition for a few months each time. Success on the pitch is the only sustainable way to grow the club.
TV and sponsorship donít seem to be keen on Scottish football, my fear is a lot of fans will use TV and the media to inform their opinion on things and many of these fans wonít use the web to inform their opinions. Think thatís why we have a high proportion of Scottish people slating football here and hyping up English football. Hope HSL and local football fans can rise above this and get behind Hibs. I speak positively about HSL but itís difficult to reach fans that are sceptical and donít use the internet, as Iím sure you know! Hopefully HSL are seeing an increase in momentum after a good season.
