Can we set up a managers fund , Celtic , Dundee Utd and even East Fife have similar . £5 a month minimum times £10.000 = £600.000 minimum per year to the manager . Not impossible is it ?

I think it's a good idea. No one will miss £5 a month and if 10,000 people do it there is an extra £600,000 for a better playing squad that we all want.

Don't think I'd pay more than a tenner a month, on top of the expense of ST's / taking 2 kids to the games with me, but a tenner a month would hopefully fit a lot of peoples budget and may be a sizeable addition to the transfer fund.

I'm not waiting on some despot leader to instruct me to take my life savings to the club shop, but I have taken an executive descision of my own, and that is to plough in any money that I spend on my immediete family for pressies this year by going to the Hibernian shop next week. a minimum 4 items of clothing to be bought for my son and family in Wales, 2 items for my other son ,somewhere in europe at the mo, and 2 items minimum for my Leith based daughter and her wee princess.I might also treat myself, and force the wife to wear Hibs gear for christmas tae!.

You know Monkton has a great point as do you with your above post. If ever there was a time for this to hit home and every Hibs fan do what they can to better strenghten our position, not just financially but as a competative team, it is now. How ironic could it be that with the **** hitting the fan for them and the begging thats come from it, we as fans of Hibs match every penny (or of similar context) and we thrive and prosper on whats for them a doom and gloom situation but for us that it takes us to the next level.

Again they are a club that keeps on giving. :flag:

09-11-2012, 06:22 PM
more bums on the seats is the best way to get extra cash and with the team doing well surely attendances will start to rise esp if the yams start getting sell outs we should match this but in our case the money goes to pat fenlon and not hmrc or madvlad

I'd happily donate to this scheme, however, here's another thought which I'm sure the club would be happy to facilitate, why dont you consider using the money donated every month to purchase extra tickets and find some way of putting together a system with hibs which identify these tickets as for the 'managers fund' so the money still gets to the intended destination but we also benefit from extra bums on seats ?

That way we could donate the tickets F.O.C to schools, deserving cases, charities etc etc, the list is endless, we build a greater atmosphere in the stadium, the club still sell the add ons, pies, programs etc, the manager still gets his money, we generate interest in the club, and all those who are happy to donate sit and bask in the warm glow of a job well done, just a thought ?

I spoke about this to my cousin at the Dundee game but what about hibs having a "crossbar challenge" competition at every half time? You sell it like a happy hibee £1-2 a go and put up a cash prize of say £5,000. 3 tickets get selected at random before half time if your selected you get on the park with one chance to hit the bar you hit it, bingo, you win.

What are the chances of Hibs pulling out even 3 people who hit the bar a season??? slim I would think. We could make a nice little earner out it. Add to that gettin a sponsership on it and the earnings increase.

That was my initial thoughts. Bad enough having a duffer at the helm but even worse when he's spending your hard earned dosh. Although it's easy enough to cancel a direct debit I suppose.

I started a thread a couple of weeks ago suggesting that supporters could chip in £25 a head to get Griffiths tied up. I would be happy to go with the £5 per month idea but as you say it would then be a case of hoping the manager uses it wisely - which if it was someone like Calderwood then I would not be too confident.

I prefer the idea of fans getting a say on how any extra money is used but I also sppreciate that it would be harder to organise. Maybe the £5 could be held by a supporters trust. Each summer the money could be handed over to the club and the trust could have done a survey of it's members to see how the money is used? This would just be a suggestion though and the final choice would be down to the manager.

If you take this year as an example though, if there was a six figure sum being handed over then I'm pretty sure that the vast majority of fans would want it spent on Griffiths.

Just been talking about the £10 PM membership for hibs.net and got me thinking, couldnt we do a similart think for membership of hibs.net as a whole and say everyone here has to pay a £5 to register or even each month? Or maybe not each month say 2 or 3 months a year you have to pay to access this and all funds go to Paddy? With PMs already subscribing they could possibly be exempt from any charge? Im not a Pm and currently access this for free but I imagine like mosty people it has become a big part in day to day life for me I would be happy to pay a minimal fee to access .net. Possibly get some agreement with the Bounce or other main fans forums to apply same principle?

I dont know if that would even be allowed and probs goesa against the ethos of alot of mesageboards but its just an idea.

A bit more about Wednesday's meeting - if that's OK.

Let's Work Together was started off by supporters last winter who wanted to go a lot further than talking at forums. We were keen to meet with management to discuss the problems around the football club and offer up solutions. This gathered momentum after the cup final debacle and the club reached out to us to get round the table. Monthly meetings kicked off in July and key members of the board and management team are now fully involved. It's early days, but it helps that everyone one of them is a dyed in the wool Hibby, some who've supported the Hibees since the 1950's.

The principle is simple. The more we can give up our free time, ideas, skills and experience to help our football club, the stronger we will become. So far a couple of dozen Hibbies have stepped forward but it's not a fixed group and there is no 'membership'. There are 5 teams though, each one working with different members of the board and management E.g Big Issues, Vision, Sales/Marketing, Media and Matchday. You pick a team based on which area interests you the most or where you think you can contribute relevant experience.

Wednesday night's programme kicks off at 5.40 (arrive for 5.30) with a guest from the SFA giving a report on the recent Scottish Fans Charter. Next will be an update on our own plans in place to survey fellow supporters during 2013. There will be a report on the work underway with the board on developing a shared vision for Hibernian. Sales/Marketing have been progressing a few ideas to generate more money for the playing squad. Last and certainly not least, Sect43 will give us the heads up on their journey since last season and ideas to get more fans involved in making Easter Road a Fortress.

If you fancy coming along at 5.30 pm on 14/11, please PM me your full name, mobile no and email address before Tuesday. It's a condition of our meeting at the Stadium that we know in advance who is coming along

We are all ages from teens to 80, passionate Hibby lads and lassies all

I'd definately be up for this. Hope this idea happens. Reckon i'd contribute a tenner a month. The best way to get money is to get fans through the door but if we all chip in then the club will have that little bit more money. More money means better players. Better players means better results. Better results means more fans. More fans mean more money... and the cycle repeats :thumbsup:

I would certainly chip in a fiver a month for a scheme like this, especially with a guy like Fenlon in charge who's proved he can spot a player. Hopefully something more concrete will be on the table after tomorrow's meeting and we can get involved. It wouldn't take a huge portion of the support to sign up and pledge even £5 pm to make a real difference to the player budget.

We have 5 home games between now and the end of the January transfer window. We need to get Easter Road as crammed as possible between now and then, so match tickets and crucially half-season tickets are one of the best ways to get money into the club between now and then.

If we're wanting Sparky, Claros, McGivern as well as anyone else Pat has his eye on, we'll need to give his budget as much of a boost as possible.

Let it grow organically through Hibs web page/newsletters, Hibs.net/Bounce, Facebook, twitter, message in the programme IMO.

Pretty much.

Use one of the contacts in Hibs, get a bank account set up, get the details out and let the donations come in.

Either pay into the account as a one off or set up a DD.

C'mon guys, lets not make it more complicated than it is.

I agree that there a whole raft of things that the support should be asked / surveyed about, but this strikes me as one of those that with a decent groundswell already does not need that - people will either subscribe or not with nothing in effect lost form those who do not but plenty gained from those that do

This is a top idea!

Fans who live far away could make a tangible contribution to the success of the team on the park with something like this - and I'm sure some occasional attendees could also be persuaded along similar lines.

Apart from that, regulars and ST holders may well also be interested - I certainly am - in any way of making a direct contribution to the playing squad.

There are clearly supporters on this thread with ideas. But ideas don't make things happen. So instead of telling others what to do, please volunteer time to help get things off the ground. Pm me or vivapalmeiras. We need a couple of volunteers, 4 at the most to help make progress quickly. We've looked into this and it takes more than bank accounts.

While I would be happy to pay in and just see the return out on the pitch.

What about having a monthly prize draw that all contributing automatically are entered into? e.g. for Free tickets, Clubstore vouchers, free Hibs TV membership?

Might attract a few more people to contribute, especially those fans who live away and dont get to many games but still want to see Hibs be successful.

We appreciate time is of the essence. Initial discussions have already started, a team is being assembled (we're looking to tap into skills, knowledge and experience rather than reinvent the wheel) prior to meeting early next week if you or others would like to participate (maybe you already PM'd Gogs he's passed on one name) please let Gogs or me know today. Especially if you have done something similar (we'll need to consider finance, legal, administration, promotion etc.)

How about a monthly newsletter - subscription only - with managers/players/chairman interviews that is not available online or anywhere else? I would be happy to pay £5/£10 per month if the money was going to fund players. Something like the current match programme, it can even have some ads to raise more cash...

Has this been discussed?

We've done player sponsorships, PM subscriptions. A re-occurring donations service could be done maybe?

Rest assured it's already been discussed with a number of existing systems within the Hibernian Family.

We have to remember that Messageboard Admin (like the rest of us) have day jobs too. As you rightly point out they currently support a number of fantastic initiatives within their spare time capacity.

There's going to be fresh work to set up and admnister this fund so having consulted with various parties, volunteer resource has been identified as one of the main challenges. Not to say we won't all work in unison, take advice from all quarters.
