Re: Minority of not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

So I had a big framed display of all of my match tickets and a panoramic photo of SJP from the year I lived there. It fell off the wall and smashed last night. Apparently the ghosts in my old house are trying to send me a message too. [Kidding about the ghosts part] I reference that because reflect...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Precisely, the whole "but Uber, but Disney, etc." thing is getting parroted by plenty of people out there. Even when you ignore debates around whataboutism, the NUFC takeover is a completely different situation. Not only are the PIF the clear majority stakeholders, they're also deliberately fosteri...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Generally I find this article ok but then a section made me think of something that annoys me. A false equivalance many nufc fans have been making It is possible to be happy with the conclusion of the Ashley era, while also appreciating the cost it has come at. I’m going to own my hypocrisy – insof...

Yep, and each individual has a totally free choice to do that should they wish.
It's a shame that freedom of choice doesn't necessarily extend to citizens of certain other nations

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Like I said earlier, it's the difference between conscious and unconscious contributions. For one, PIF aren't the majority shareholders of any of those companies. More importantly, you never see images plastered all over social media of Mohammed bin Salman alongside Mickey Mouse; that isn't the cas...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Yep - it has been a long time since there was this feeling around the prospects of the club! And the irony of all the people complaining about human rights is hilarious. Most are voicing their concerns via Twitter/Facebook/WhatsApp (all of which PIF have shares in), probably have drunk in Starbucks...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

It's been a while since I last posted on here but had to come back and comment on the takeover. It's good to hear other fans congratulating us after all we've had to put up throughout the years but I can't understand the negative comments coming from other fans on social media and football forums. ...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Done with the club unfortunately. I'm not going to tell other people how to think, but it would be impossible for me to separate the club from a state that clearly controls it (despite what the Premier League will have you believe). People point out that we, in one way or another, contribute to bor...

Re: Takeover back on - Saudi lift Bein ban

Not sure what it says about the state of the world when a deal was held up on account of TV money rather than human rights. Seems the Premier League are no longer hung up on the 'state controlled' ownership issue now that their wallets have been accounted for. I was once a season ticket holder but l...

Re: The Ameobi Arcade

If they could rewrite the end a bit it would be good;if they're setting up a sequel they really have to pick one to choose as canon for it, so they could hopefully flesh it out a bit. And get rid of the f***ing starchild bollocks while they're at it Yeah, will be really interesting to see how they ...

Re: The Ameobi Arcade

Makes we wonder whether this remaster will also serve a purpose relating to the new sequel. Might provide the sequel with a cleaner source of data to draw from, assuming our decisions will impact upon the story in the next title. <scratch> Looks like I'll be breaking my 6 year EA boycott to pick the...

Re: Football Kit 20/21

Rumours flying around that we've signed a deal with Castore who make Rangers kits. Could be bollocks, but could be interesting. Allegedly £5m/year for five years which is less than Puma are paying us and a long time to lock in for if we’re going to be taken over... Though from a kit perspective it’...

Quite a few. I've got a massive head so I only have a couple of hats, but my wife and son have loads of hats between them.

Re: Toon Takeover Thread - PIF Pull Out

The Reubens have been donating thousands each week to the NE food bank and had big plans for the area. As much as it could be a 'dodged bullet' with PIF, the North East was undoubtedly going to become a better area post-takeover. At the risk of sounding champagne scoialisty again, since when did we...
