    Decent shout but I reckon almost all their money is tied up. Although they made around £30m selling a painting so they could do up their house a few years ago the fact they had to sell it suggests to me not too much cash sitting about to waste on the gunts.

    My theory is not a single benefactor but I group of them, I think I've suggested as much on here before. The Earl of Roseberry may well lead or at least be part of the consortium.

    I suppose time will tell if the stand is named The Earl of Roseberry Stand or the Budgie Stand :-)

    I expect they were obliged to punt something to show good faith before various bodies came forward with the cash for the house renovations, or at least a hefty wedge of it. No chance they funded it entirely themselves by punting that painting, these folk just don't operate that way.

    The strip being in his family colours pretty much nails it down him being a big contributor- and their honorary president it would seem too.

    Are you saying you think the Council gave them 2.5 mill? Do you have any evidence of that because if they did [and it seems unlikely] that would cause a $#@! storm.

    Nah just stirring - does show how anonymous donations aren't healthy though... i could see the council throwing money at them - they have in the past (and maybe still do) hire empty space under tynecastle stands for storage at ridiculous rates.

    the council did entertain the idea of 25K all seater "athletics arena" in the west of the city too...

    but 2.5M is a step to far.
