but now. It's the Chairman and the Chief Exec. that have 'left' the Hearts.
What, may i ask, is going?
I said a week or so ago that I felt that this Romanov guy was upto something and I think that there can be no mistaking now, that he is. It's not just a something but a SOMETHING.
It seems like the Chiefd Exec. got sacked because he had not achieved enough since he started the job some 8 months ago...ehm...pap. Attendences are up, season ticket sales are up, the team were sitting at the top of the league and were undefeat, he a appointed a top class manager. Doesn't sound like he hadn't achieved 'much'. By anyones standards, in any walk of life, that is impress but given footballs depressed state at the moment, the 'results' are fantastic.
But, it's not enough for our Mr. Romanov who promptly accepted the resignation of the Chairman, who had tendered his resignation in protest. Romanov has now appointed his 29 year od son to the post of Chariman and Chief Exec.
This, coupled with there search for another manager...
A farce. Who would job a club in such turmoil? No-one. It's that simple.
Romanov has punted 2 managers - the 3rd, Levein left before he was pushed. He has punted 2 Directors and replaced them with half of his family. He has interfered in team selection. It's not looking good.
Hearts had a chance to do very well this season. A very good chance but the last 2 weeks have seen that chance evaporate. Not entirely, but almost. Instead they have a tyrannical Owner who is intend on acting like a complete dictator. What's next?
He wants to build a 60,000 seat stadium. Where exactly...looks like it won't be Gorgie. He wants to win the Champions League within 3 years. Hearts haven't even won the Scottish League since 1960 (or there abouts). A team composed of Lithunians. Probably.
There is having dreams but quite another when they are so fanciful.
Someone needs to have a word..
