    Remember when they sent out an email enquiring about new transfer targets only a few weeks ago ?

    Let them die.
    The one that stated they had money to spend, so to include players requiring a fee.

    Have Hearts at any point accepted the fact that the most prevalent factor in their current predicament has been about 15 months of utterly abject footballing performance that falls way below the standards that Hearts would (quite rightly given their resources) reasonably expect to meet?
    Not once!

    Don't be fooled. Hearts are goosed.

    Months ago budge admitted that they didn't have enough money to see out the season. They would also have budgeted for a top 6 place and the prize and gate money that goes with that.

    Their 12th place left them with an even greater shortfall. To make things worse they released their STs a good bit later than normal and the uptake hasn't been great.

    The decision to go with wage cuts as opposed to deferrals will also be hurting as they'll still be paying more than we do normally.

    They'll have got a wee cash boost from the ST sales that they've managed but they'll be running on empty well before the end of the year. Are their mysterious benefactors going to continue to bail them out? It'll be getting more and more expensive.
    The fact that they had spent £4.6m (around one third) of this financial year's income before the end of last financial year shows they were in poor shape a year ago. Their turnover for this year will almost certainly be down, they didn't appear to cut any costs before the pandemic forced them to and they haven't brought in nearly enough of next year's income (ST sales) to bale them out to any great degree. The only unknown is the generosity of the Bennies which must surely be sorely strained.

    They can hardly be anything but goosed.

    The point Iíd love the Radio Scotland Intelligencia to answer:

    Through their repeated financial mismanagement, Hearts make a mockery of other clubs making sustainability their top goal. There fore why should they be assisted before/more than others? Discuss.

    I 100% would have no problem seeing them disappear for good. Selfish maybe but my life would be better without them around. The derby's no big deal IMHO, just a pretty unpleasant excuse for an outpouring of bile and I think Hibs would actually thrive by not having to adopt a different mindset for one fixture.
    For once we agree.

    Wonder how many of their players are out of contract at the end of June and what difference that would make.

    I scored out Washington as he has a year left. So 9 wages saved as of next week which is not bad but their squad is still bigger than ours and a lot more expensive even with their relegation clauses.

    If there are a bunch of clubs that can't afford to play behind closed doors and another bunch that can the league will be reconstructed to accommodate those that can.

    Whether that means hearts are in the Premiership or some kind of modified Championship I don't know, but that is what will happen as it's obviously best for football.

    I agree, clubs are going to struggle and I genuinely believe they'll be saved on that basis.

    You have hit the nail on the head!!!
    But even the clubs that can afford to play behind closed doors may find it unsustainable the longer it goes on.
    I feel football should not start till there is an agreed date for fans returning to stadiums!
    2 months before maybe playing a game a week behind closed doors, but I feel that waiting could be nearer Christmas before we're let into stadia!!!

    Thatís possible. The lower leagues could possibly be restructured on a geographical basis as well, reducing travel costs might make some closed door games possible.

    Pereira and Meshino are loans, and iirc Brandon was highly rated (albeit injury prone) by them so they won't want to let him go if they can re-sign him
