Hibs Take over
« on: July 02, 2019, 01:37:53 PM »
Hibs have been bought by a US based business man. All debt has been cleared and the assets (stadium, ticket office and training facility) all transferred to club ownership.

Suspect this might scupper any interest we have in McNulty and possibly even McGeouch.

The Yanks are piling into our game. What's the deal?

Be interesting to see the short term moves. Certainly, they've got a great infrastructure and a very good city centre ground, so they should - in theory - be way ahead of us now that their debt is cleared.

Apparently the guy is Scots born though based in the States. As Rico says....with a newish stadium now paid for they should be able to plough much more cash into the team now. Should see them become top team in Edinburgh for the foreseeable future and be able to challenge ourselves and sevco for second/third.

Let's hope Cormack decides to dip into his pocket sooner than we expect

According to Scotsman new owner was born in Peru and connection to Scotland comes from his Grandfather who emigrated to Peru. Guy himself was educated in Peru, the US and Australia. Money comes from media companies involved in Spanish language broadcasting rights in the US.
