  Hibs FC and coronavirus - our Chairman's statement!
Posted by: 0762 - 27-03-2020, 18:24 - Forum: Hibernian - Replies (1)

Ron Gordon finally issuing his own take re the COVID-19 crisis and how it is affecting HFC and the relative footie community. One significant part of the Chairman's statement saying, "There are some certainties – we have lost our revenue streams, while our ongoing running costs remain largely in place, and we anticipate that we will not be playing matches in the coming months. This is clearly not sustainable.
Although Hibernian is better positioned than most to weather the storm, we are far from immune. Unfortunately, other clubs are facing similar or even more severe problems. The loss of cash in the bank puts our Club under the most severe strain and threat".

Ron iterating his mantra, "one club, one team", and we are strong as one unified group to adjust and take on this crisis together.

Posted by: Arcane Astral Aeons - 24-03-2020, 19:32 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - No Replies

here is the result of the 12.00 pm snail race from farmer maggots field...starting last friday

the results have become a bit clouded under controversy
as snail 3 won in under 3 days
the owners of the other snails are claiming the winner was on steroids
as it stands the IOSRC(International Olympic Snail Racing Committee) will be holding a review into the race,and reports suggest that the race may have to be held again.

And In Other Sporting News:
The World Championship 3 Legged Donkey Race At Blackpool Today Ended In A Farce,As One Donkey Actually Made It To The Finishing Line.
The Remaining 7 Entrants All Fell At The Starting Line

Breaking News:  the winner of the 3 legged donkey championship was sensationally disqualified just after the race due to the fact it wasnt a real donkey
it was found to be from the local pantomine that was cancelled over the weekend

and just before i go
some sad news to report in the world of pig throwing,the world champion porky sadly passed away this morning
his owner was understandably upset,but issued the following statement:

FREE BACON SANDWICHES FOR ALL

and thats all the sports news tonight
tune in tomorrow when we will ask the question:

well due to the fact all sport has been suspended on planet earth
the crew of the star ship enterprise has been going stir crazy

spock has resigned himself to his quarters stating (i cannot logically comprehend no sport)
Kirk has left him to his own devices...out of of sympathy
as for the rest of the crew
even the threat of Klingon attacks are going unprepared

our rear end was compromised earlier by a rogue attack
we manage to repair it
but we envisage more rear end attacks

the Enterprise is drifting throughout the galaxy looking for some sort of sport to watch
the morale of the crew is at rock bottom

apart from the planet MoreOr Less
that is still broadcasting 
Womping Feareless Wombats
We Have Nothing Really To Report

You People Of Earth Take It Easy
We Are Sure Your Sports Will Resume

For Now
Kirk Out
