Hearts are doing a The Rangers maybe

Hearts have issued a nice festive warning to their fans that the club might not survive another month because they owe shit loads of tax money and can't afford to pay their players.  Whoops!

Perhaps the club could take advantage of one of its sponsors - maybe someone like Wonga could lend them a quick fix until pay day, and then Hearts will be able to give them the money back then.  Uh oh! Looks like next month's pay is already owed to the players.  Ah well - another loan shouldn't hurt!  Ho ho ho, what japes.  The BBC said this:
The Edinburgh club issued a plea for "emergency backing" from supporters to avoid the prospect of administration.
"This isn't a bluff, this isn't scaremongering, this is reality," read a statement from Hearts.
"Without the support of fans there is a real risk that Hearts could possibly play its last game on 17 November."
I often joke about how people don't read the letters that I send to them because not only is it a good punchline, but it's a convenient way to end a story.  How surprised I am now to realise that only years ago I suggested getting rid of every other club in Scotland as a possible way for Aberdeen to win a trophy again.  It's either that or 'space elephants'.  I'm not sure of all the details for that one, but I'll keep you posted.
