Mr Gordon's media connections could be incredibly valuable to us. But not just that, surely to hell the new president of the SFA just has to tap into that expertise to help Scottish football as a whole Ö this is a guy who clearly knows what he is doing.

Looking at his biography he seems like a driven individual, but what I like is the number of times the word 'community' appears there.

Welcome to Hibs Mr Gordon Ö Never forget, even if you have bought the body you don't own the soul Ö If you are nice to us we will be nice to you :greengrin

Fair enough but luckily he does not look like him e.g. he does seem to have a normal hairdo. I also hope, being ostensibly community minded, that he is not a compulsive liar, crap deal maker, tax avoider, predator of woman, nepotist, is anti science/environment, an admirer of despots or is a populist rabble rouser .... green Ďhibs are greatí hats are fine though:greengrin

Loved Ron Gordon's Sky Sports Interview! Saying all the right things, gave a great first impression.

"This is the best financial state the club has been in decades. Certainly with absolutely no debt now, gives us alot of opportunity.

Paul will be supported financially, he knows the tools that he'll have and the resources available. The club will be in a position to take advantage of the right opportunities when they present themselves.

As a starting point we want to be the best of the rest, and then at one point in a position as a club to challenge for the title. We want to compete year in year out and if we can get to that level then we can complete for the title."

Interesting stuff. I particularly noticed the part where it said "they purposely avoided such larger markets as Dallas and Miami, which already had Spanish-language radio, television and newspapers. "It's a big fish in small pond mentality," Gordon said."
I wonder if that's what attracted him to Scottish football - it's a league with a relatively low barrier to entry, where a little (in football finance terms) can buy you a lot.

We could invite The Rangers to play a friendly on the 4th of July

It's a pity that Washington signed for Hearts. 😁

He might have a Marshall Plan for Hibs.

Hearts got there first. They'll be paying back the debt for decades to come.

I wasn't the poster comparing our humble new owner with that moron. It's been a happy day for Hibs and I didn't fancy the benevolent Mr Gordon being compared to that camp, vain, Islamophobic white supremacist eejit. Don't bother to read the link. Go back to sleep if you want. I hate to point out the truth. You can't travel to USA from certain majority Muslim countries now since 2018, but strangely not Saudi Arabia, despite the latter being the main source of everything wrong with Islam.

I can honestly say that you get the very best and the very worst people from the USA. I'm delighted to have Ron Gordon aboard, but there's no need to lionise those over the Atlantic. I find it embarrassing reading or listening to the fawning and forelock tugging to our American friends. There are those amongst them that have done great harm to our planet and wish us no good. It reminds me of the Yams with their Russian hats, with some of us talking about stetsons being put on. Do we want to emulate those cringe worthy ingrates? Are we really like those rednecks over in Gorgie? Let's enjoy this without making fools of ourselves.

I'm a bit keener on the Peru angle, personally.

Calm yourself down, I read and know the story of the link. Iím not getting into any of the rational behind bans from countries to America but I donít think itís just because they are majority Muslim countries. Thereís other ethnicities in they countries too. Trumps scared of terrorists, why shouldnít he be?

Iím not getting into any of the rational behind bans from countries to America but I donít think itís just because they are majority Muslim countries. Thereís other ethnicities in they countries too. Trumps scared of terrorists, why shouldnít he be?For a start, the 'intellectual', financial and logistical backers of terrorism come from a minority sect whose foundation is in Saudi. Whose citizens are not included. Ordinary Muslims are the victims of his travel ban, not terrorists. One can't punish everyone for the actions of a tiny minority. German politicians have correctly identified Salafism as the root cause of terrorism and there have been calls to crackdown on it there, something I support. Trump actively promotes his Saudi friends, literally let's them away with murder and given the attacks in Europe, Isis in ME, and warcrimes in Yemen, I'd say he's actually an enabler of terrorism, rather than an opponent, due to his strong support for the Saudi royals.

I realise I'm rather heated about this. The man just makes my blood boil, it's not you, please don't take offence, we all have a right to differing views, I believe he's a danger to world peace and his brutal disaster capitalism outlook, especially with the migrants who are being treated like dirt in the internment camps in Texas is heartbreaking. He's also a serial sex offender. One measure of a human is how they treat women, right?

It's not something I'm concerned about over our new owner, he comes across as very decent, but say we were like Sheffield Utd, who have Saudi millions backing them, I'd take a hiatus from supporting Hibs. I recognise Gordon's work with minorities and community in US and I'm confident he'll get our foundation from Irish refugees, as a positive.

To an ear not used to the nuances of American accents he does sound like Trump - with a bit of something Hispanic thrown in. Quick Google also shows he's a former member of the Republican National Committee, ran a Hispanic Republican conference and was appointed to a commission under Reagan. We'll just have to watch out for him making the players wear Red Hats as they go up to accept the Scottish Cup next time. :greengrin best place for US politics is possibly America though.
