Bitter budge

10 in a Row

By now, most of you will know that the SFA Arbitration Panel has found against us in our “unfair prejudice” challenge, following the relegation of Hearts, Partick Thistle and Stranraer, as a consequence of the early termination of Season 2019/20.
For those of us involved throughout this process, sadly once again, we cannot say we are totally surprised at the outcome, despite firmly believing in the power of the arguments and evidence we put forward.
I want to take this opportunity to thank our legal team, who despite the result, were quite simply first-class. They acknowledged from the outset that this would be an uphill battle, but nonetheless it was a battle we felt we had to fight. We could not simply sit back and accept the unfairness that was being meted out to us.
What has been allowed to happen in Scottish football, where fellow member clubs and our governing bodies have stood back and allowed totally disproportionate financial damage to be imposed on 3 of its members, can only be described as shameful… as indeed, should the SPFL’s recent self-congratulatory statement.
For too long, Chairmen and Owners have stood on the sidelines bemoaning the decision-making processes, the perceived lack of leadership, the lack of commercialism; the general shortcomings, as they see it, of Scottish football. However, if they really want things to change, it will take more than words. They will have to stand-up and be counted.
We tried to do just that. Unfortunately, the very fact that we tried and lost, will cause many others to be even more wary. I can hear them now... “You can’t fight the rules; you can’t fight the establishment; we must support the centre.” Sadly, I see little cause for optimism that things will improve any time soon in Scottish football. I hope I am wrong.
My rant is over for now. While frustrated, disappointed and angry with much that has gone on over the last 4 months, we must now move forward.
We will suffer serious financial losses as a consequence of losing this particular battle but we will survive and we will come through this stronger than ever. We have suffered a series of blows over recent months, but our spirit has never been stronger. We will continue to run our Club with honesty, transparency and integrity. These are the values we have always adhered to and we will continue to keep them front and centre of everything we do.
We will also lead with strong financial management and importantly, with confidence. We look forward, once again, to celebrating a successful year, culminating in winning the Championship and getting back to where we belong. Robbie has done it before and with your support, we can make this a year to remember for the right reasons as well as the wrong.
I make these statements, confident in the support I know we will have from our incredible fans and sponsors. The messages of support that I, personally, have received throughout this enormously difficult period have been absolutely amazing. Let me say “thank you” to each and every one of you. I am sorry we did not win this battle but as we all know, it is winning the war that counts.

Glad the Edinburgh huns are down..Let us never forget this club tried with Scott Gardiner and Rangers to null and void league..

I actually thought she would be good for Scottish fitba when she first took them over. How wrong was I? She is even almost as bitter and twisted as their West Coast cousins. And rather than bringing in much needed well organised business savvy to the game she has made stupid mistake after stupid mistake.

It is all her fault for them being bottom of the league by continually sticking with Avril Levine despite him being a calamatous disaster.

Feck off back to the Championship, Anne, and don't hurry back.

This is all just PR to the Hearts fans. She might actually believe that they had a strong case but she is surely not that gullible or deluded. Rule A3 was the clincher. Slam dunk win for the SPFL and I do hope that the losers get landed with the considerable costs of their futile protest.

The thing that sticks out in the statement is budges own lawyers told her at the beginning the were in an uphill battle, they were always on a hiding to nothing with this action, she's supposed to be clever, I think her brain went into lockdown as well as the country.
I don't like Hearts, a shitty club with a nasty support,, enjoy the championship muppets, hope its a long stay. 🤣🍀

She shoulda read the articles of association,daft fecker,lawyers love chumps like her!!!!! 🍺 🥳
3 members all picked from an approved list by both clubs, Each got a say who represented them final member was jointly picked by both clubs, All Q.C.'s majority said nothing was done wrong in the decision by the SPFL to call the season, filth continue to scream corruption. Thick as shite in the neck of a bottle, their own " club" voted for it after the smoking gun turned into a water pistol!
Can't wait to hear this season's excuses.😂
