    Ach probably, but aside from the tiresome infighting its mostly been good fun.

    Actually this is starting to give me deja vu ÖÖ I'm getting flashbacks to David Duff when he is about to be told who has made an offer to buy the club and gets asked Ö who is the worse possible person you can think of.

    Could it be David Murray?

    YIPES !!! Ö. After posting that I had a horrible thought. If he is indeed about to sell Newcastle Utd could Mike Ashley be about to take horrible revenge on Sevco and turn his attention on the one club he can own who they hate almost as much as Celtic

    I know, I can't see how a thread like this would ever bite us on the backside.

    Folk have had a bit of fun discussing a rumour. That's it. Big deal.

    I believe thereís a small snippet in the Saudi Record by Sheik Keffa Jakshuni dismissing any links which makes it a goer for me.

    We are all having a good laugh at the characters being put forward. But not out of the question it being a small investment with the likely restructuring if European club football and Hibs potentially being in a Tier 2 situation with lots if upside potential. Investor can increase stake as things evolve. As people have said we are are a well run club with great facilities unlike the crackpots across the city.

    So just to be clear, as long as a would be savior throws a few quid around for a few years, you wouldnít care if a generation down the line when you might not be around any more, they or their successors walk out leaving a shell of a club, bankrupt and facing liquidation, with devastated, broken hearted future hibees everywhere. You wouldnít care as long as you get to see a few shiny pots being raised in your twilight years? Aye, selfish sounds about right.

    admittedly thatís an extremely pessimistic and melodramatic outlook on what could happen but there are enough rotting corpses of clubs scattered throughout football history to suggest itís not entirely far fetched.

    investment in Hibs is not a bad thing. But Iíd like to know exactly whatís on the table before grabbing it with both hands. Once the family silver is sold itís gone forever.
    Yip, got it in one.

    A lot of doom and gloom about a potential takeover... of the worst happened and we had a 10 year period of (relative) success then were left for dead as it were, then I donít think hibs would fall far before picking themselves up... maybe drop to the championship for a another period but as long as our youth policy doesnít disappear we could regain a footing again... Hibs are too much of an institution for that to happen.

    Scottish Football is different to England where if you fall away you can be stuck for decades. Look at Blackpool, Portsmouth and some of the clubs in League 2 and Non League as examples of what can go wrong. Scotland is a bit different, I believe most of the teams in the top flight would rise to the top flight again eventually if they had to start all over (although after Rangers the rules have changed and I believe you would need to start in the Lowland league now rather than League 2.)

    I know a few Rangers fans that said that League 2 and 1 years were actually a top laugh and away days were fun and different from the norm. Would they do it again? Nah, but they enjoyed it. Much like I enjoyed the Championship, it renewed a bit of love for the club in my eyes after years of absolutely bang average, passionless football.

    So yes. I would take 10/15 years of trophies and European nights if it meant having to try and get 5 promotions or so from the Lowland league. Would be more trophies at the end of the day

    You obviously missed the update where he announced the name of the Saudi billionaire, Yousuf Bin Had.
