Would only have Jose if it was impossible to keep Rafa.
Would have him here only as long as it was written into his contract that he had to crack a smile on match day and not be a miserable old tool at post match interviews. He can be as dour as he likes at home in his suite at the Premier Inn.

I am now out of patience.

The carrot has fallen off the end of my stick and I’m pretty braced up for a skeleton team and a halfwit manager who will jump through hoops at the start of the coming season.

Im [__] this close to burning my shirts and never stepping foot in the ground while that pathetic excuse for a human owns the club.


Rant over.

Can't speak for anyone else, but I'm remaining hopelessly optimistic. No news doesn't mean it's dead and buried. Although the closer Rafa's contract get's to being gone, the more worried I get. This kind of process, the takeover, seems like it'd be complicated. Hopefully it takes less than 20 odd days, one way or the other.

Agreed. I think if it was in trouble news would be getting out. Oddly no news seems like good news for the time being.

Hope so. At least it seems like an honest attempt to sell the club this time.

I'm remaining optimistic for a change.

Rafa would have walked by now if no progress was being made. That's what I'm telling myself anyway....
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

The reason's nothings coming out yet is Sheikh Khaled is currently on holiday in Reighton Sands caravan park in North Yorkshire til next Friday. I have it on good authority ( ITK from a bloke whos cousins mates older brother works security and the slots arcade ) that him and seven of his eighteen wives have block booked nine 'Cotswold Class' caravans near the site shop.
Apparently he's been overheard in the club house a few times , a bit worse for wear, apparently ( don't read anything into this ) "practicing Geordie" .. he sits and chants "Toon, Broon, Hadaway 'n' s**** , gannin' to the netty pet ".
The cleaners have reported that in at least one of the caravans there are plenty of DVD cases lying about of Spender and Auf Wiedersehen Pet (Series one), and wife number three has been asking people if they know where she can get some pease pudding and stotties. So fingers crossed, it's looking good !!
What a player! What a signing! What a day for Newcastle United! .. actual BBC commentary from Moussa Sissoko's first game for Newcastle United

I'd say it seems more like an honest attempt to buy the club. But I wouldnt put it past Mike Ashley to put so many conditions in there.

I'm a cynic but when it was declared they had agreed a price, I can believe that. Ashley says he would sell for say £350mil.
Price is agreed.

Then as they get into negotiations, Ashley puts in clauses that either make the club an unattractive prospect to buy, or if they do actually accept them makes him a lot of money.

Could easily see him holding out for a guarantee that Sports Direct get free advertising for X number of years, or that he gets a percentage of transfer fees received from players signed under his tenure.

I just dont believe the man is in any rush to sell the club. If its making him a tidy profit and he doesn't need that lump sum, why would he be?

Me too -used to go every summer in the 70s, they had a big tractor used to tow a big trailer with bench seats on it to and from the beach, we'd run behind it and hang off the back of the trailer .. Health and Safety wasn't invented then ! <laugh> <laugh>

Yeah even in my summer jobs when I was 16/17 (so early 2000s) people didn't care too much about H&S and that was relatively recent. I used to work in a factory and drove the forklift without ever having a licence or doing a training course on it, and we had these massive steel framed racks where pallets were stacked that had 4 or 5 different levels) and if a pallet got wedged or stuck you'd just clamber to the top and shove it loose (no safety ropes, hard hats or any of that bollocks <laugh>). Those were the days.
