Man, oh MAN, did I wake up feelin' like a gagillion dollars this morning! It wasn't a dream ... the gaffer really did make me club captain. I'll need to make a mental note to thank
Mr Levein, erm, Robbie, when I next see him.
Now, as I'm now officially Cap'n 'murica ... I needs to find me a Bucky! After all, every Cap needs a sidekick ... but who to choose? My first thought was to enlist young Sammy, although I'm not sure that my sidekick should have so many tattoos ... can't have the hired help lookin' tougher than the 'Big Show' now, can we?
I'll just need to keep my eyes skinned at training today ... see what cream rises to the top.
Until next time, kids ... Let's yankee our doodles outta here!
Things, unfortunately, seem to have gone a little bit quiet recently in regards to the upgrading of Tynecastle - and the main stand in particular. The club had hoped to begin working on the area under the Wheatfield stand in April. Currently, the Edinburgh Council Planning Portal shows that a decision on that planning application has yet to be made. *update* planning permission for the Wheatfield stand undercroft was GRANTED on 28.07.2016 So, obviously we are going to see delays on the club's planned timescale to complete Tynecastle and increase her capacity to somewhere just north of 20,000. But this article isn't really about the existing plans. This article is about "What happens next?"
Seeing as I disagreed with more than just a few folk on social media last night - and took abuse from a handful - I thought I would take some time out, in more than 140 characters, to put my current thoughts about Hearts "out there" for people to maybe get a better understanding of where I was coming from. (I'm more than happy to discuss my opinion either in the comments section below or on social media). I'll do it by "answering" some of the points raised last night. So here goes...
Almost two months ago, I had an idea.
That idea, due to the Tories being returned in government at Westminster, was for supporters of Scottish independence to have a new, party neutral, flag to display that support.
