    Seemingly an Israeli investor wanted to buy us

    Remember Roger Mitchell, ex head of SPL
    I think it was. He is saying he was asked by an Israeli investor to help him buy Hibs. He saw the potential in Edinburgh.

    All very vague and can't help but be thankful it never developed

    Sounds good as long as he's not "investing" in the same vein as Mad Vlad EDIT: sitting watching Leeann's interview and would urge everyone to get it watched, it'll only get you more excited for the rest of the season!

    Glad this never happened.
    Not in favour of foreign ownership.

    I'll take this with a pinch of salt. Mitchell has and always will be a slaver.

    He has been but he is now seemingly running a vineyard in Italy having fecked up running the SPL in the not too distant past. Key misdemeanour being messing up the TV deal for the SPL
    Hibs are standing on the brink of history...

    There would have been a few drawbacks if that happened. 😜
