    Damn the Scottish Mafia to hell and damnation for forcing Hearts to lose their best players and denting their forthcoming title challenge before it has even begun...

    ^ As much as he deserves to be sacked, it's a loss for Hearts in as much that he was/is a very promising young player.

    I read today that Vlad plans to move him on to one of his other playthings, MTZ-RIPO or something like that.

    Was it the right thing to do? Why? Why does someone convicted of a crime deserve to lose a job that, otherwise, they are doing well in? To satisfy some people's need for vengeance? He's been punished by the courts and suffered a very public humiliation. That's been deemed enough. It's not up to Hearts or anyone else to dole out their own punishment.

    I totally agree that he can't play in Scotland again. But If I was Hearts, my first instinct would have been to try and get him moved to some foreign club.

    He's a 20-year-old man (yes, 20 years old is young, but he's a man nevertheless) who admitted to perving on young girls, one as young as 12. If that was my daughter I'd want the c*nt's balls on a platter. From what I can gather, the overwhelming majority of Hearts fans are glad to see the back of him as much as the rest of us.

    As I've said, he's young and no doubt naive, but at the same time it's awful PR from Hearts' point of view to be employing someone like that. Even Romanov admitted as much by sacking him, albeit in the wake of intense media pressure and public opinion.

    Which Romanov is in the process of doing.

    He allegedly raped someone. And that person happened to be over 16.

    Glad to see there is a Hearts thread. I'm reading The Hearts; Story of the Hearts of Midlothian FC online at

    http://www.londonhearts.com/images/mackie.htm

    Pretty good read so far. I lived in Edinburgh about 14 years ago and have been a hearts follower since then....

    Looking forward to chatting on here during this season

    Has any one signed up for the international heartstv package? Is it worth the money? Do you have a free website to watch games on? Thanks

    In order to resign [sic] him, he would first have to have cancelled his original contract.

    Craig Thomson hasn't re-signed for Romanov, he was never released by Hearts in the first place. He's been sent to Lithuania to get out of the limelight in order to appease Hearts' sponsors.

    He'll either be back when Romanov feels it's all blown over, or his contract will be terminated by mutual consent after the Lithuanian season ends in November of this year. Thereafter I'd imagine that he'll skulk around the central European leagues for a while in ignominy.

    Great find! I hate reading online but there's only one used copy of this book for $85 on Amazon so I'll get over it.

    The second round of Europa League qualifying began on Thursday night, with Hearts midfielder Perry Kitchen pulled due to a hamstring injury during the first half of a very muggy, scoreless draw away to Maltese side Birkirkara.
