    And he reckons the Old Firm could help pay for the system's implementation through the money they make from the Europa League.

    He said: "I read recently that Ajax gave up their European money to take up the plastic pitches and put down grass pitches for the rest of the clubs in the league

    "Maybe the Old Firm will give up their European money to put VAR in for everybody."

    He’s obviously at the wind up, all joke on the side though, would Hearts give up money they made if they qualified for Europe?

    Of course he is. He's very much on a "not giving a phuck crusade". Surprised he still gets the bites he gets.

    PS. He is more than welcome to continue baiting and annoying Timothy.

    If we were in a better position financially then I wouldn't be against it tbh.

    However as it stands we've still got quite a bit of work to do to get our own house in order in many areas of the club in order to get to where we want/need to be and of course, Rangers always come first.

    Aye bit of a difference between PSV and Ajax who'll make at least £80m in CL money between them this season, and us and them in the EL who will make £20m between us if we are lucky

    The way he's acting, he reeks of piss. We aren't a fecking charity to other teams. Hearts should be a bigger club than they are. I get his irony but wtf with the put upon attitude from Levein?!

    Aye we'll give up the European money we've had to work tirelessly for for years since Scotland's football clubs got together and tried to kill us.

    We’re not a Charity.

    We might keep other clubs afloat with ticket sales but to suggest we could help out here if circumstances were different is naive at best.

    We’ve got a care of duty to our own shareholders. That doesn’t mean doing the work other clubs should be doing themselves and financially supporting them.

    He's always been a half-wit.

    The love in for him on here when he was giving some to Beast FC was pathetic.

    So we complain and complain about refereeing decisions all season long and then if the chance presents itself for us to put money in to help improve the standard of officiating we turn around and go no?

    Flawed logic imo.

    Taigs wouldn't want VAR as it would prove their is no masonic conspiracy so would damage their claims to be life long victims.

    Celtic can pay for it.

    They promised the rest of the league a brighter future as long as they voted us down. Up to them to provide it.

    It won’t be popular but I agree to an extent. If we want to level the playing field and improve the standard then things like this are required.

    I don’t see why Hearts couldn’t chip in. They are the most aggrieved by it and they’re constantly getting the begging bowl out asking the fans for money!

    It’s up to the authorities running Scottish football to provide the finance for these kind of improvements

    fair trade off.

    And i think the European money (specifically he CL money) should be more evenly shared around all tiers of Scottish Football.

    Are you kidding? They would want liewell controlling the VAR!!
    I would like to see the system implemented for next season, and a percentage from each club to help pay for it.

    £300k per club to install the system is what H & H quoted the other day. I wouldn't be totally against the idea if we were in a better position financially.

    I'd rather get rid of the plastic pitches first though.

    I'd be happy to give up money if these clubs rent it from us and install grass pitches.

    It was funny to watch him wind up the scum and take points off them, but he was always going to turn his attention to us at some point. Suppose we can't now greet when it's us on the receiving end of his soundbites.

    It should have also been written into the new TV deal as a prerequisite that whatever TV company successfully won the bid then the cost of implementing VAR would be included as part of any successful deal.

    Too much like a good idea!

    Avril could be onto something. If it was paid would we get returns back in the form of decisions against the hammer thrower teams which would lead to points and points make prizes??

    He could have suggested this when Celtic were raking in the CL money with no one else getting a look in. Why wait till now?

    Did he mention the Alfredo sending off? Maybe he's a wee bit sheepish now having contributed to the demands for him to be punished.

    Why should we foot the bill?

    If they want us and them to start paying for everything, then take away the rests voting power.

    Otherwise, they can shut up

    Is this some FF in joke that I may have missed in the past or is that what you actually think the saying is?

    Yes. Good point. They have no place in the game.

    It’s not our fault that these sides cannot fill their grounds. We do our best for them twice a year plus any cup games.

    It’s all well and good saying give up the Euro money but we aren’t getting CL levels of cash.

    It's not ideal, but if we could get VAR and remove plastic pitches then I think it would be worth it - obviously, the pricing couldn't be too prohibitive.
