I'm guessing by being out this afternoon I haven't missed any announcements regarding the takeover, transfers or Rafas' future at the club. <whistle>

Ashley has just bought GAME for £52m, hopefully this means he'll need some cash, say from a sale of a football club?

I was just in my local house of Fraser and they’ve got an entire floor full of Sports Direct crap now.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Not wishing to sound too negative but are there many on here who actually believe the takeover will happen? I know I've got my doubts.

Heard some interesting things tonight.

Apparently the other group of bidders who want to remain anonymous are Josh Harris and David Blitzer. They currently own Crystal Palace along with Steve Parish. A deal to sell their shares will go through this week. Then they will be able to purchase us.

Ashley would prefer to sell to them as they're happy to keep sports directs deal in place regarding the club shop and website along with the advertising while BZG aren't. Which is why Ashley has been holding up the BZG deal. Meanwhile BZG have become increasingly frustrated and put a 7 day time limit on the deal. If the deal doesn't go through this week they will walk away from it.

Also apparently Rafa will definitely leave on Sunday. He's frustrated by the club and doesn't trust them. He made it clear what his terms were. The club didn't match them and said it was their final offer thinking Rafa would cave in. Rafa has informed the club he's leaving and now Charnley is trying to offer him the assurances he wants but Rafa is now refusing to take calls from Charnley due to how the club have messed him around.

Make of all that what you will. I'm not entirely sure if I believe it but it certainly wouldn't surprise me.

We really are a joke alright.

Ashley really has torn the good out of the club.
