So, if I can filter through all the noise on this thread, the summary is that two people have left the Hubs and the owner has appointed his son to a recruitment job ... a son who lives in the USA.

Real estate. 

I think that's real reason. He'll then develop the training centre into an all purpose stadia with 4 brand new cow barns and locate down to Tranent. Then flog fester road to the highest bidder where they'll build social housing for the local methadone community and Ron the Con, will pocket himself a large profit into the bargain. Once the new cow barns are sold,  he'll look to recoup his initial outlay for what he initially spent on this pet project.

 

Ron is an astute businessman and he knew a good deal was there to be had when he shelled out his peanuts for the lochend Brazil.

 

PS We could always make our fixture with Edinburgh City the new Edinburgh derby.

More fool the vermin but it’s staring  them in the face. This guy is all about fan experience and without a doubt he’ll move them out to the barn like some American style complex and expect them to have tail gate parties and the like in the car park, the rat pit will be sold and there’s nothing they can do to stop it. He’ll pocket the ER money and get some soul less bowl built out in the sticks on the cheap with some sponsor helping the cost by  naming the stadium. I fully expect in 3 years Hibs to be playing at the 15000 capacity marathon bet arena in Tranent.

It seems ridiculous but this is the guy who thinks hibs fans will be snapping up Charleston Battery merchandise in the Easter Rd club shop (and vice versa).

 

Has that business model ever worked in the history of football?

I looked them up today, Robbie Crawford plays for them. He floated about the lower leagues here and Iceland or something before going to charlston, that shows the level they are at.

And the Hobos will still try and spin it as a positive- amazing how few of them are concerned/ questioning where they’re going. You read .nut and a few of them are claiming they’re in safe hands because “Ron’s a business man - he won’t lose money”. Feckin right he won’t and that’s the very reason to be concerned….ar5eholes, let them rot

I was at the Yankee stadium, early 2000s, at the time Man U had a merchandise tie in with them. I didn't see one item of Man U merch (not that I was going to buy any).

Another one I hadn’t realised the Peruvian Craig Whyte has slipped in over the road…. he’s stopping the production and sale of match programmes….obviously not a big enough margin in them despite them part of a match day experience for loads of people

He was over having a trial at East Mains as part of the deal along with two other hopefuls. 

A laughable concept.

To be fair, it's probably the only time anything attached to Hibs could be described as electrifying...


But they’re used to being charged.

Sounds like the restructure involves  siphoning money out of the club, straight into his family's pockets.

 

Can't wait til he restructures the stadium into student accommodation.

Really thought Charleston Battery was something to do with poultry and the chickens have come home to roost

 

This team are small fry though, but I came across this interview with their joint owner Rob Salvatore. Although no Hibs contents it gives a clue to the mindset of the Americans, one that I cannot see working down Lochend way.

 

 

Only things I liked was the bars and bursd

Reminds me of Hamilton Accies but with less supporters. Good luck selling vermin shirts in their club shop. Wonder what their average crowds are?  The must have , new hibernibum shirt for the Charleston fashionistas’

2019 average attendance of 2,424. I’ve got nothing against smaller clubs in general but linking up with Hibs means all abuse is deserved :buttkick:

If hibernibum were such a top draw scattish team then they’d be partnered up with an MLS team. Cringeworthy to say the least. Still I’m sure Ron the Con has it all worked out. I look forward to the meagre financial  input from across the pond while he gets busy asset stripping down lochend way

They’re doing away with matchday programmes at the piggery now. Although I dare say there was never a high percentage of their support that could read, it’s another sign of the times.

It's a bit like Portsmouth, Charlestown, in that it has a very large USN base there.

The concept of an arrangement between clubs isn't too bad, but bringing over a 27 or whatever year old journeyman like Robbie Crawford for a trial certainly is laughable.

 

I mean do they need to go all the way to the US to find someone who was at Rangers as a kid and then bumped around the Scottish lower leagues for a while? These guys are everywhere in Scottish football.


And this was all the doing of Hibs new Head of Recruitment.

Off topic a tad, but why don't the Proclaimer's do free concerts for hibs as or maybe its because  every other touch they have been involved in becomes a shambles,

 

Like lets raise a 100k, binned not to mentioned again

I want every one of their deluded support to realise they will never see their club again.

I want them to realise they could have done something about it but instead, they sat back and watched while their club died.

**** Hibs, and **** their supporters.

Another example of Gordon simply not getting football culture. Does away with the fans scheme, the youth academy, the Sporting Director/DoF role and now programmes. Those big screens though...

 

Hibs have also sneakily removed Ian Gordon from their directory after only sneakily adding him a few days ago. Sleekit.

Interesting point in Ross' poor attempt to take the heat off Porteous on the BBC website.... "We are fortunate here that our head of player care is an ex-police superintendent and we took guidance from him".

 

Presumably on first name terms with many of the Hobo reprobates over the years in his former career, wonder if they got him in especially to try and prevent any more names getting added to their long list of players who have been in bother with the cops!

On first viewing I got the optical illusion of a roof over that wee stand and the car park behind it then a bridge built on top of it.
