    People are now complaining about HSL trying to raise additional funds for the managers budget? How anyone could take offense at the original post is baffling.

    HSL Imo is making difference to the players we have and can make a bigger difference in the future to getting better players. I fully support its objectives.

    Trolling fans efforts to improve the clubs finances, weird eh. At least one never hesitates to praise FOH as well.

    More would surely help though, no?

    Yes it would, however between 4 members of my family Hibs have gained a total off £1285 out us for next season as well as previous seasons, I think thats enough imo. Those who can donate more then well done and fair play however I'm not in position to donate right now.

    I guess the £1285 Hibs got from me for 4 season tickets for family members isn't enough? I can't afford anymore therefor I think I've paid enough towards the managers budget. Not about being negative, its my opinion thats all. If others can afford to donate then brilliant.

    Fair enough. So there's no good reason you have for contributing to this thread at all.

    Football income is changing and Scottish clubs are playing catch up with the rest of European football.

    That's me signed up for monthly direct debits of £7.73. I know it's not much, but it's all I can afford and every little helps.

    I doubt you're alone, I pay for season tickets and cab manage the lowest monthly donation for HSL.

    Both are my choice though, if I thought either were too much then stop.

    Certainly wouldn't feel that I should moan about someone asking for more help just because I thought i was paying enough though. I'd realise that it's a choice to make.

    Yeah you should probably stick to telling folk what away games they're allowed tickets for.

    Or because no-ones cares about your personal position with money, and if you’ve got no interest in donating then this thread has exactly 0 relevance to you.

    If that's all you can afford to do, of course of it is.

    But at a time when the monies raised beyond this by both Hearts and Aberdeen through their schemes to name but two vastly outstrip what is raised by HSL then clearly its not if we want to compete at the top end of the table.

    What do you think pays the other running costs of the club?

    Some of the ST money goes towards this.

    Contributing to HSL is a guaranteed way of putting money in the pot to be spent in players.

    Every £ counts I would urge those that can afford to contribute anything at all to do so

    HSL will facilitate contributions of any amount.

    I much prefer where we are now to where we have been in recent years and there is no doubt money talks.

    We finally have a structure and manager in place that we see that monies raised will be used wisely

    The fact that you know the exact figure tells me all I need to know. You can't contribute, fair enough. But there's no need to use your sob story to discourage others.

    Not meaning this in a bad way but what's the point responding to this thread stating why you think you donate enough? This thread has been put together to encourage more donators, it isn't a dig at people not donating so why respond like that?

    All you've probably achieved is deterring people able to donate from donating as they'll likely say "you know what, I give enough". Its always a personal choice but sharing your own opinion of it will clearly have some influence on others. This "dinnae give the club another penny" talk helps nobody, except you as it may be popular opinion.

    As a country we get less through TV money than the Austrian league, we are at the bottom of the barrel so thinking that all money from ST goes to playing budget is foolish, where is the rest of the money coming from to pay the catering staff, the groundsman, the office workers etc? ST cover internal costs as well.
    HSL gives a mechanism to give money solely towards playing endeavors only if you can afford to. 2000 out of 13000-14000 ST holders and all the overseas bunch is a poor/slow turn up in my books and I think a lot of people are disregarding HSL far too easily.

    We will be happy to moan when Hearts and Aberdeen leave us in the dirt, won't we? We are a negative bunch tbh and I think that is partially to blame. HSL are asking people to donate, if they can, and we seem to be getting our panties into a royal mess over nothing.

    Donate if you can, simple message.

    I cant multi quote but if I could I would highlight a few post on this thread from folk complaining about the issue being raised to the phraseology used.

    For goodness sake you can skim past any post \ thread you don't like, its not mandatory to read them all.

    Meanwhile in the real world our rivals continue to raise more than we do.

    I know what I think is the bigger issue, but folk need something to complain about I suppose

    You’d have thought that most folk on .net are aware of HSL by now!

    Maybe time to start getting your msg out to a different audience instead of coming back time and time again to the same folk?

    If they want to pledge they will, they’ve had enough reminders.

    Except someone joined a few posts back?

    Socioeconomic factors will change, we will get new members here. We've got a transfer thread that descends into puns each year and has numerous pages of essentially zero worthwhile information. Yet a thread about raising funds for playing squad is criticised. Sometimes things just seem a wee bit mental, honestly.

    The quote below completely rubbishes your response.

    If you can’t afford it that’s fine. If other fans can, that’s fine too!

    That is a tremendous contribution to the club. I don’t see why you would feel pressured to do more?

    Any communication from HSL that I have seen emphasis the those who can afford to message.

    This is a good idea, however way you slice it, Hibs will benefit, and its only £10, if you can afford it, go for it.

    Exactly this. It's in the thread title. 'Can you afford £10'

    I've no idea why certain posters are offended by this. Nobody has questioned why they can't.

    Can you afford an extra £10? No. I cannot. End of. Read another thread. You're no worse a hibs fan, person, husband, brother, colleague.. etc

    Probably still moans about the 5p bag charge in Tesco anaw.

    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.

    Absolutely correct.


    And I also disagree with fundamentally 'the masses' subsidising wealthy footballers or multi-million pound generating businesses.

    If you went to less away games you could afford to donate to HSL (devil emoji) 😀
