Hibs v Aberdeen v Gunts Turnover

Gunts have retail and catering done in-house whereas we outsource? I've read elsewhere and even on JKB that, if you take their anonymous donations out of the equation, they're running at an overall operating loss. Not sure on what the sheep's situation is.
RE the outsource element it's something that comes up every year when we compare turnover. What I don't think ever happens (or potentially is able to happen) is a comparison of what profit margins the different approaches mean. Clearly, taking on staff and having them on payroll, all the H&S elements, HR etc etc can become a significant liability - however when two of our closest rivals are undertaking it in this way I feel more scrutiny regarding the approach is required.

As has been mentioned the way Hibs lump everything in makes it difficult to breakdown, but I would suggest that a shareholder request to see the evidence may be interesting - perhaps a HSL request due to their shareholding size.

Considering we're still flogging hospitality for this weekend I'd suggest, as others have, that our commercial operations are now hitting the mark that they should.

Agreed.

I still find it incredibly strange that our head of sponsorship is the manager of the team that beat the Hibs Ladies in the Cup Final the other week.
But as it never gets mentioned anywhere, it must just be me that finds it weird.
Worse, she was on the pitch celebrating.

your right kev... the gunt has catering inhouse, turnover is higher but its bottom line that matters. Don't be fooled about their massaged figures, they're still a basket case and are relying on donations. That won't last. The Gunts have also seen some £6m being paid to the budge family for their ridiculously expensive short sighted new stand.
They also fuck their sisters.

Scott Booth is their manager I thought? Laura obviously found herself in a odd predicament given her split loyalties. Wee bit of leeway allowed I think given the year she's had I think. A solution needs to be found to avoid it happening again though.

Laura is the manager, founder, and ex-player there.


Scott Booth is coach.

I’m amazed that the Sheeps’ TV money is so much higher than ours. Their US deal is interesting although it seems they are going to be the junior partner in the arrangement. I always thought it was a shame that Boston called their MLS team something shite (not literally) instead of Boston Hibernians as a few of my Bostonian chums had suggested. I think there’s an obvious tie up there though. I wonder if that sort of arrangement is on DaDooRonRon’s radar?

I’m also curious about what commercial income the Gunts have that we don’t. I assume this is merchandise and hire of facilities for functions but the marked difference seems odd especially as their shirts look like bowel cancer.

I wonder if K Power can illuminate us?

Canny speculate on wooden dollars elsewhere against ours - I’ll leave that to the experts.
No secret that Hibs are wanting to perform stronger off the pitch - will no doubt be expanded on in AGM (January likely) and in more formal communication from Ron/club’s senior management (last update 7th Nov). New recruits - advertised September - to bolster the backroom team incoming December (🗣 communication on its way 📨).

Any feedback (other than perform stronger on the top line please!) then happy to pass on of course ✅

Yeah she's "club manager", she played for them and, i think, was involved in their formation

I said it at the time, she was on the pitch celebrating our ladies team getting beat in a cup final. It didn't sit right with me, i found it very strange.

I think that might mean I can update the Gunts and Aberdeen ones, just waiting on the Hibs ones.

Aberdeen have an exceptional item of £4M for Pittodrie impairment. I'd be interested to know what that is exactly.

Decrease in site valuation?
I'm not sure if the stadium was valued as 'a stadium' or as a potential site for redevelopment.

I have been on about this for months. Our Commercial department were desperately trying to secure match day sponsorship for the Celtc fixture a week or so before it a few months back. No shirt sponsor (OK we decided not to have one...) and inventory unsold all over the ground.

Maybe I am just bitter... But I am Murphy's.

Noticed one of the booths at the away end was occupied on Saturday. Cannae mind them being occupied before, I take it they are hospitality?
