    Can you afford £10 to help Neil Lennon get the players he needs to take Hibs forward

    Can you afford not to ?

    All cash raised goes straight to the manager’s fund to help get the players we need at Hibernian to take us onward to the next stage, it may even help to keep some of our favourite players at Easter Road a little bit longer.

    Your help as a supporter can go a long way to making this possible.

    I already contribute to HSL and I would urge anyone who can to contribute even a small amount every little helps. It could make the difference in taking the club to the next level

    Is buying a season ticket not enough? After all those funds go straight in the managers transfer budget don't they?

    Aberdeen and Hearts, our closest rivals, have similar season ticket money coming in. But they are both raising £100 of thousands of pounds more than us every year through can donations.
    When Hearts and Aberdeen pay of their new stadiums, which will definitely happen at some point, their advantage over us will be huge.

    You don't need to donate extra, but our closest rivals are...

    Iíve been contributing £10 a month since the very beginning and I havenít missed it at all. If itís helped in even the slightest way to bring a bit of success to the club then I am more than happy with my investment.

    Not everyone can afford it but those who can certainly wonít miss a small amount donated every month. Just have one pint less a week 🍺.

    It's £10 per Month, but the comment "Can you afford not to?", is like some sort of gulit trip mechanism. Poor show IMO

    Depends on who we want to buy.

    They will, but they will also go to the running of the football club. Contributing to HSL(if you can afford it) will ensure that we continue to compete at the top end of the table.

    I would encourage all Hibs fans who can afford it to contribute and help with making our team as good as it can be.

    I love Hibs but I don't really agree with this kind of thing. Ultimately you'll have every club in the SPL doing the same thing, cancelling each other out and leaving fans with less money and nothing to show for it.

    That may be, but it has a secondary function of protecting the club's future by having 26% of the shares in the hands of HSL.

    At the end of the day it doesn't matter what individuals views are... its a black and white issue.

    More donations = better budget for the squad

    Less donations = stay where we are and lose some of our best players as we cannot afford to aspire to their financial ambitions (Dylan McGeouch to name one).

    If you cannot afford it, then please don't decry those who can or those who actively encourage others who could afford it but don't know the benefits. If anything also encourage it.

    Its not elitism at work here, its harmony. HSL staff, members and contributors are doing their best to help out the team and in turn the Hibernian community as a whole.

    Iíve set up a £10 per month payment (as well as my Season Ticket)

    The fan ownership side of HSL doesnt interest me much but the additional funds going into the Managerís fund does!

    Except the quality of player in the spl will be better and we might be better placed to retain key talent.

    In saying that, I agree the plea for cash in a forum thread is not helpful. It is far too loose and lacks specifics. If you want folk to commit cash, better to be very specific on what weíre trying to achieve, what is needed overall to get there, how the funds will be held and used. Important the folk actually see the incremental improvement, there money has made ie without the extra contributions, what would the squad have looked like. If it can be shown exactly what the funds have done eg allowed Lennon to snag Kamberi, then many more would be inclined to subscribe IMO

    That would be your personal choice. Other people can also make their own personal choice.

    Given the relative size of support for each club and the considerable variation in incomes from other revenue streams this clearly will never be the case.

    No one is obliged to give, so Iím quite happy that we raise money this way.

    Do the other people have to be reminded or enticed to make a donation if they choose to or not.

    Buying a season ticket is the single most important way of backing the team - both financially and in person.

    There is always a risk that appeals to back HSL ignore the amazing backing that supporters are giving the club. A full ER is a glorious sight.

    However, there are folk who donít make it to many games, for whatever reason, or can afford to give a bit more on top.

    Itís all good!

    At the moment, only a few clubs are doing this.

    If all Premiership clubs started a subscription scheme, would you still argue that Hibs should avoid it?

    Itís another source of revenue for the club. It helps to improve the squad. Why get worried about that?

    It only reads that way if you're looking for it, imho.

    Nothing wrong with the OP, folk can either afford it out they can't, I don't think anyone at HSL or anyone supportive of HSL have ever set out to guilt trip folk into signing up.

    In fact, in the majority of comms that have asked for cash they've gone to great lengths to make it clear people should only contribute if they can afford it.

    The OP is a turn of phrase, I don't think anyone should be getting worked up about it, personally.

    Surely all that matters is the need to improve the squad. We don't want to either stand still as a cub or slide backwards HSL can help the club to move forward

    Tend to agree dont see the issue with trying to encourage more fans to contribute. There has been a decent amount of hype/marketing recently about it with a few players and the manager signing up for it. Good idea to come onto forums to raise the word also. Hope it is successful.

    There is something wrong with the extra 'o' on "to" Where's that 'Wee Effin Bee' when we need him?

    Joking aside - I actually agree that it could have been positioned and worded better. But it's not offensive and clearly only designed to drum-up interest and memberships for HSL.

    Thatís marketing for u. How many items do u see advertised in the press, on TV etc. that you already have or have no intention of buying?

    Iím glad they are going out for more. The greater the awareness, the better IMO
