On a more worrying note Boggers. Shocked

In August 2013, Wilf, along with his brother, Mark Wilf, and cousin, were found liable by a New Jersey court for breaking civil state racketeering laws and keeping separate accounting books to fleece former business partners of shared revenue. The presiding judge noted that Wilf had used organized crime-like tactics to commit fraud against his business partners.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] In September, the judge awarded the two business partner plaintiffs Ada Reichmann and Josef Halpern $84.5 million in compensatory damages, punitive damages and interest that the Wilfs must pay.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] In June 2018, an appeal reduced this amount to roughly $32 million. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Minnesota Vikings owner and chairman of the Minnesota Vikings Football LLC, Zygmunt "Zygi" Wilf, is a New Jersey-raised real estate developer. Wilf has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Fairleigh Dickinson University and a degree from New York Law School in Manhattan. Born in Germany in 1950, Wilf is the son of Holocaust survivors who later moved to America and founded Garden Homes Development in 1954. The family-run business owns and manages more than 25M SF of retail, commercial and residential developments across the U.S., according to Bloomberg. In 2005, he and his brother Mark Wilf purchased the Vikings and have since helped fund the development of U.S. Bank Stadium, one of the largest construction projects in the history of the state. The future of the project was called into question after the two ran into some legal trouble in 2013, which resulted in a payment of $84.5M to two former business partners who were found to have been defrauded by the Wilfs in a real estate deal during the 1980s, USA Today reports. While the verdict caused some speculation about the bearing it would have on the brothers' ability to contribute their planned $477M to the $1B stadium, the concerns have proven to be unfounded. In addition to contributing the initial fund in full, the Wilfs have promised another $125M toward the project.

So 10 million plus inheriting whatever debts Anderson ran up. Assume all debts will now be settled, administration avoided and players paid - and possibly returned to the club?

Question is will there be enough left over to get Messi in the transfer window?

Disappointed it's not Ron because of his track record in turning sports clubs around, his massive wealth and the fact that he's a good guy as billionaires go, but before Sluffy jumps in with "be careful what you wish for" at least the immediate danger has been headed off at the pass if this is true.
And Toadface will be gone Smile

This is encouraging..

Zygi Wilf enters his 14th season as an owner of the Minnesota Vikings in 2018. The Wilf family has transformed the organization since the onset of purchasing the club in 2005. Zygi and his brother Mark’s continued focus has been on creating a world class organization that can consistently win and sustain success while providing the best fan engagement experiences in the NFL and making a positive impact on the Minneapolis/St. Paul community and the State of Minnesota.
New facilities have played a major role in the Vikings bright future as the team moved into a new headquarters- Twin Cities Orthopedic Performance Center- in March 2018 and have now played two seasons (2016-17) at U.S. Bank Stadium. As the largest construction project in state history, the new stadium employed nearly 8,000 construction workers and already has had a significant economic impact on the region, sparking nearly 20 development projects and serving as a multi-use facility capable of hosting more events than any stadium in the country. Under Zygi’s stewardship, the franchise delivered a historic public-private partnership to build the multi-use stadium that will serve as the centerpiece of an economic development package for the state and region and a transformation of East Town. Since passing legislation in 2012 that included a $477 million team/private contribution, the Wilfs have since guaranteed an additional $125 million toward the project as they remain committed to investing in the state’s economy and dedicated to providing a world-class showcase for Minnesota’s sporting future.

Where to start with Zygi Wilf? Well, he looks unnervingly like Snidely Whiplash and employed Mike Tice, Brad Childress and Leslie Frazier as head coach for nine of the 13 years he has owned the team. All of that is mildly terrifying.

Not only is Wilf incredibly creepy, he also used the threat of a move to Los Angeles in an attempt to extort a new stadium out of the state of Minnesota. It worked.

A bit of a boy isn't he. Very Happy
In 2016 he ranked 9th in a list of the eleven worst owners in the NFL.

To be fair RT I think he'd accept any sort of decent offer just to put this shit storm behind him.
...and seeing that Anderson bought the club for £1 and has had huge trading losses since it's starting to look as if Anderson has got his payoff.

To be fair, AnfersAn was due on talksport with Jim White. He told Jim White that the couldn't make the interview because " he was negotiating a deal with someone who wanted to but the club"

Whether that was another outright lies by Mr Anderson - I don't know.

Well Boggers statement was that it's a done deal at an agreed price, so what is left to negotiate?
