Re: Toon Takeover Thread

I don’t know how Sky can report something like this? I remember when they used to be a credible news outlet. Staveley has played it public ever since 2017 but stuff like this (if true) is too public for me. It’s exciting but we still have a manager and leaks like this make me wonder how much is blu...

Re: Toon Takeover Thread

I'd imagine there will be a big legal dispute if the PL say no to this.

Hardly the ideal start of any takeover, regardless of your personal opinions on if they should be allowed ownership.

https://twitter.com/ManuLonjon/status/1252531143234269191?s=19 Like previously mentioned this guy has been pretty spot on, if this is the case who would you choose? I'd like to see a fresh face so Allegri or Favre. I just don't know why the new owners would leak stuff like this so early. I think Ge...

On the 'football' side of things, they are apparently likely to get Benitez in as manager. Can't wait <erm>

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

You can clearly see other brands in the skip too and if you look behind the skip inside there looks like what could be new boards standing upright.

The monochrome thing has my interest, this is just general housekeeping imo.

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

Kinda weird that the only ones handling this with a bit of professionalism is the club itself <laugh> To be honest I'm at the point where I just wish the news hadn't broke, as exciting as the first 24 hours was it's kinda getting annoying now, I just don't get why there has to be a rollercoaster ri...

This.
Nonsense. The club should make a statement once it's done.
This. The Bin Zayed company should be doing the same, it’s actually weird the daily statements and a big part of why I think this is all ****.

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

I’m still erring on the side of caution, let’s not forget he never provided proof of funds when trying to buy Liverpool last year.

Sorry to be the buzz kill here but the Amanda Staveley episode was mentally scarring for me.

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

Basically nobody has a f***ing clue. I see one tweet saying it's done, another four saying it isn't, then someone from Abu Dhabi pops up saying it's all but confirmed. If I had to take a punt, I would anticipate they've been in talks, the Sun have gotten wind of it and printed that story and exagge...

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

This mornings news was very important as to where this was going to go, it was either going to be confirmed, or where we are now (where we were with Staveley and to a lesser degree Kenyon). When we do eventually get taken over, it will be like a story out of nowhere and it’ll be done, doesn’t sound ...

Re: Game of Thrones

I definitely did not wait 8 years for that. Dani’s death was almost an after thought of the episode, Jon does what everyone wants him to do and gets banished for it and Bran decides he’s actually Bran again (after turning down Warden of the North) now that a better opportunity comes along?! Let’s n...

I still don't understand why Dani didn't fly straight to the castle and obliterate it mind you rather than burning all the people alive

This. At the very least start with the castle then move onto the innocents.

Re: Game of Thrones

Well I wasn’t expecting any of that. I get the ‘gods flip a coin when a Targaryen is born’ thing but thought that Viserys was the lunatic and Dani the good one. Sure, she can go a bit mad too but it completely betrays her entire character to this point. Also, she’s done nothing but dream of the Iro...
