If they anticipate an abnormal six months, I take it they're going to live humbly within their means, pay their debts when they fall due, pay their players in full and on time and when the football starts again play some decent stuff and rise up the table?
Is it asking too much for them to lose a few derbies within that time?
F'k .... if she approached the bank they must be desperate, they wouldn't lend to Man Utd just now never mind a Scottish football club, she must have known that.
The point she is missing is that Hearts were not rubbished in the media for what they did, they were rubbished in the media for the undue haste with which they did it and then on top of that hinting that they would have money to spend in the summer. They have shown an utter lack of class throughout this and would be better served by just shutting up for a while ... a good long while in fact.
Coz this poor us with lashings of pontificating to everybody else is getting bloody old now, with any luck the undeserved pass they have had from the sports media in Scotland for the last 5 years is about to come to an end.

She oversaw the construction of a stand that cost as much as an entire stadium would cost which she then followed up with agreeing to fund what can only be described as a "do or die" January transfer window with the signing of Boyce and co, and now she has the audacity to try to paint their predicament as a normal, run of the mill situation that every club is facing?
Not even Romanov would have that level of audacity.
She , and their supporters , are going to find it really tough being in the 2nd tier next season.
Whilst we will have games against the Celtic,Rangers and Aberdeen to look forward to they will need to make do with Arbroath and Ayr. Financially and reputationally they are going to take a big big hit. To quote Billy Brown they are "struggling".
Does anyone know IF they have paid rent up to date for the use of training facilities?
Not sure how this can be checked but maybe the press could check?
This would show if they are living within their means for example.
