Almost certainly proves nothing, but I do enjoy seeing Sports Direct signs in a skip.

I had the first custom w***

Could easily be them just getting replaced for the new season. Equally I could be wetting my pants with excitement

Personally I don't think it's linked, I find it hard to believe that would be the first action of new owners.

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.

I'm pretty sure the signs being brought down was mentioned as being in the works a few years ago, before any of this takeover lark. For my money it's obviously not collected, but as someone else said, it's damn good to see. I wouldn't be surprised if Ashley put some kind of clause in the negotiations to put them back up, however.

To be fair whilst this is probably just general maintenance if I was coming in it would be the first thing I'd do. Instant 'hero' with the moronic masses

I wonder if the fat man used one of his gigantic Sports Direct calculators to work out the selling price.

IMHO. Anything branded with sports direct = taccy, shoody garbage. Something that stadium really doesnt need association with.


All these things the past 3 weeks are surely not just all coinciding with coincidence.

The takeover will happen. We are all just looking for things that may burst our bubble.

Friday / Saturday over here is weekend over there. Business resumes on our Sunday. But as we in the UK are closed on a Sunday. Earliest will prob be Monday

So we're fundamentally incompatible as a club/owner relationship. Call it off.

If unprofessional business men hadnt slipped the tongue.
We would all be sitting here in threads about no new players or Rafa contracts.

Instead we at least know that it is apparent a takeover is taking place.

Lets ride the train.

This guy might not have a pot to piss in, as far as we all know. He might be a Saudi Uber driver.

Nah, if news hadn't leaked we’d barely have had a post for a week or two <laugh>
