Hearts chief Ann Budge’s reconstruction plan officially dead after six clubs publicly reject it

ANN BUDGE'S 14-14-14 reconstruction plan is officially dead.

PFL clubs have now been given until noon on Tuesday to respond to the Hearts owner's proposal.

But Forfar Athletic yesterday became the sixth League 1/2 club to publicly reject it.

Budge would need the support of at least 15 out of 20 lower league clubs - meaning it definitely won't go to a vote.

Cowdenbeath, Cove Rangers, Peterhead, Elgin City and Clyde previously said they were against the plans.

Championship clubs are also expected to block Budge's bid - with the Hearts' hopes of avoiding the drop now doomed.

The Jambos could play next season at Murrayfield along with Hibs after both clubs were offered the use of the home of rugby to host their matches during the 2020/21 campaign.

Both clubs could face vastly reduced crowds whenever fans are allowed back into stadiums due to strict social distancing rules that would slash stadium capacities.

But BT Murrayfield has a capacity of over 67,000 making it over three times the size of Tynecastle and Easter Road, both able to hold just over 20,000.

Hearts have used the home of Scottish rugby in the past, playing four times in the 17/18 season while refurbishment works took place at Tynecastle.

In the four games they played, they picked up a win, a draw and lost to both Rangers and Kilmarnock.

The SRU have suggested the national stadium can be a perfect venue to host both football and rugby once given the green light to return to action

Quelle surprise!

Lawyer up or get yer Championship COVID-19 Test facilities on the go!

For what it is worth my own opinion is that she has invested so much in this and she has the backing of Hearts supporters to do so - she will go legal.

Why are we waiting on hearts to go to court? We were denied the chance to win the league and access to CL league funds? The league was given it wasn't won and it was given through bribery, coercion and corruption and we want hearts to go to court for us? What happened to all our big fighting talk have our boards balls dropped? Sick of Scottish football there is no sport or joy in it it's a complete joke and the most corrupt in Europe.

A prick like lawell running it and we back down to that prick? We should be calling him out and going for his throat.

They'll get what's coming to them soon enough.
The fact we are playing ball with the reconstruction process tells me that despite the bluster we have no intention of going to court.

Talk of challenging the status quo, was just that, talk. We have been shown to be as weak willed as ever. I’m really disappointed, I thought this board was different

Why are these clubs not voting for the greater interest of ceptic, sorry Scottish football and voting in their own interests, are they pissed off they didn’t get offered a glamour friendly

There were two obvious options for the SPFL -
1. Play to a finish, even if it meant shortening next season
2. Null and void and a sweetener to Dundee Utd to shut them up
Instead they took (were forced into?) the middle route, which satisfied their overlord Lawwell, but which meant ongoing chaos and a forever skewed history book (Ie no ‘10 in a row‘).
Well worth the circa 400k we’re paying Doncaster - what an administrator he is, the gormless, spekky vagina.

Spoke to a Jambo in work today, he said "we will get financial sweeteners, the tims will buy a few players from us, so we can ensure we get promoted next season, so don't really care"
There we have it, a compliant bitch.

Our enemy is not Hearts, Hearts never refereed the league cup final. Hearts were not the referee at Parkhead. Hearts were not the compliance officer this season and Hearts never gifted celtic the title whilst calling our chairman a liar and much much more.

The SFA/SPFL executive committee is our enemy. And if you dont agree then scottish football is not for you. We will never have a better time to cleanse the lot, and we need hearts for this.
