% Villa -Hearts Statement ..WTF

Quote
The Hearts Board of Directors has issued the following statement in relation to outside influences on players and the club.

"What's happening with the club today is not a new thing. For almost 7 years we have been fighting to shield the club from crooks, criminals and thieves. Many of the top players at the club have felt the bitter results of the swindles that have been carried out with them on their own skin. Skacel and Webster have returned to the club after realising where these 'football patriots' have led them.

"Over a short space of time 4 players at our club have been on the wrong end of the law. We note that 3 of them are represented by the same agent - Gary Mackay - who has been so vicious in his attacks against Mr Romanov.

"Taking into account the facts that have been omitted by the media it can be presumed that each of these cases is not a coincidence, but the result of targeted actions of a mafia that wants to manipulate the club and the results.

"Every year Hearts fights to be in the top 3, but even last season in the last 12 games of the season it was almost like someone replaced the team with a different one. Whose fault is that? Players? Manager's? Or it is mafia.

"Stealing players, bad games, problems with the law - all of that on top of record SFA fines. Problems are just shifted to another level.

"Mafia are dragging kids into the crime, in order to blackmail and profit on them. It is not possible to separate these people from pedophiles, and you don't need to do that. Each year we are forced to fight against these maniacs harder and harder. We are standing in their way not letting them manipulate the game of football in the way they want. As such they undermine us in every possible way they can.

"The task of the club is to tear these kids out of hands of criminals."

blimey. You don't see that every day. It's a complete mess up at Hearts since that chairman took over. I feel sorry for the Hearts fans because none of them could ever have seen this coming when Romanov arrived. That is one hell of a statement.

Stalinesque. All that's missing is references to spiders and poisoners.

The first half is surprising but corporate in tone.  The second half of the statement after the advertisement tells us what is 'really' happening - I hope he's alright. The Scottish FA have to step in.  If they don't investigate the club we know how far the 'mafia' have got.

Do the Scottish FA have a fit and proper persons test .....I have a feeling that there may be a problem passing it ..... No problem with the English FA or The Premier Leagues however.

I gathered that. What's he on about though? Sounds like he has talked himself into an almighty suing.
