In an open letter to supporters backing Foundation of Hearts, the group's independent chairman and Labour MP, Ian Murray, insists the fan-backed bid offers the best hope of survival.

Murray states: "The media have reported that HMFC Ltd and Five Stars Football Ltd are the other two bidding parties. The Foundation at this stage will not comment on the bids of other organisations.

"There's been a fair amount of comment and conjecture, and perhaps even a bit of scaremongering from one or two individuals, but we've said all along we're going to focus on what matters to us: Heart of Midlothian.

"The administrators need a period of time to do their job and we will just let them get on with that job.

"The Foundation of Hearts is confident that the bid submitted on its behalf is the best financial bid for Hearts and its creditors."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
