    Weren't both Dundee clubs taken over by rich Americans as well, though? Still, much more potential at Hibs than either of those two.

    If they two Americans were smart they would both invest in 20000 all seater stadium with great facilities share it and sell off the other two grounds and in doing so fund training grounds for both teams aswell

    Day 1 debt free, with £ to invest, hopefully can see the HIbees in time overtaking Sevco and being scotlands 2nd team

    Are they not both close to being debt free? They have improved business models at very least and on track..

    I’m not really in favour of foreign ownership but looks like the best lifeline for a lot of clubs.

    This could be a game changer for SF.

    Wait and see if the investments to the playing squad are really there.

    At worst, you expect them to scoop up the best spfl talent we don't want and to nab a few decent championship players down south. It's throwing money at it, but enough not to be flash, but enough to take a European spot next season. Then who knows.

    They've surely more disposable money than any other club outside us now.

    Definitely in a far better fiscal position than Sevco

    Wouldn't know about that, unless he wants to regularly invest heavily out of pocket. Huns season ticket sales would get them about £16-18mil a year, most Hibs would raise would be around £4mil.

    Hopefully, though.

    Season ticket sales mean nothing if all they do is service legacy debt.

    Seems there’s questions about the takeover already...
