    That is what I don't get Hearts fans think they made the donations

    It was made by a man who The Budgie knows so I suppose that maybe close enough to make that claim We are all grateful and bow to the Maroon £

    Uh oh. I had assumed payment was in Sterling but 50k maroon pounds worth a lot less at todayís exchange rates.

    We should put a bid in for Hickey. I always feel bad when big clubs go stealing from the wee diddy teams in the lower leagues but itís a dog eat dog world out there.

    Nothing wrong with philanthropic donations as this certainly appears to be as of now, and good on him, but please let's not mix this up with Heart of midlothian's fast and loose approach to management of charitable donations that happen to pass through their hands, or be their responsibility.

    Good on him for his gesture. Nothing will convince me thoí that he didnít have ulterior motives, ( which are obvious to everyone). It was worth the gamble as it might have and possibly still could give the Jambos a lifeline.

    The man stipulated when he donated the money it was £50,000 each. Fair enough in my book

    We have more money than they do, and access to resources that they don't have. We are better placed to survive the pandemic than they are.

    It could be argued that the smaller teams need the cash more than we do.

    I think we should follow Celtic, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock in donating this to the Hibs Community Foundation just to make it clear that we feel no obligation to Hearts/James Anderson in any future reconstruction proposal or compensation agreement. Not that I would libel Anderson in suggesting that this was a thinly veiled bribe.

    The BBC piece says that other clubs have done exactly that, without naming them. It wouldn't surprise me if we were one of them.

    Hibs don't get positive publicity.

    Yeah but that's the minimum cost of getting relegated, the rest of the teams, including cowdenbeath are not prepared or able to spend that much pursuing the relegation dream, nor would their fans be conned into settling for it.

    The "trampy wee diddy clubs" (hertz fans words) that did not support them and are going to be boycotted next term will welcome the 50 grand.
    If J Anderson has not stipulated how and where it should be spent to qualify for the grant.....
    Our share could go to Hibernian charities or some to local primary schools for sports equipment.

    Good shout
    They have done very well on limited funding for a number of years
    Did the club proud with those cup wins and good football
    Hence the best going to pastures new here and abroad and making a full time living playing the game.

    Anderson has donated £250k to women's football as part of the donation to the SPFLT.
