It's pretty humourous the amount of people who become disheartened on a Thursday because Friday and Saturday is the Dubai weekend, like they are calling up the lawyers telling them to stop working on the deal and to come over for a BBQ and drinks.

Apparently BZG has rubbished claims that there is no bid on the table, something Lee Ryder has been pushing a lot through all of this. Also the statement from them is apparently still coming soon, next 7 days could be big.

The optimist in me says we are just waiting on the finer details from the PL. The pessimist in me says Mike Ashley still has time to tell them a racist joke.

I wonder if Mike is a fan of The Big Bang Theory and this is a Sheldon Cooper-esque ruse:

Probably been working on it since news broke on 26th May <roll>

A while. It's been a slow couple of months.

That Dubai Goerdie fella on twitter seems confident something is happening, and that bzg will clear things up with a statement soon.

I’m firmly in the camp that people should do what suits them. If that’s cancelling memberships or STs then that’s fine, if people still want to go that’s also fine.

What a totally bizarre customer relationship Ashley has put this club into............. Yes, customers angry about making a purchase.

I'm in ( along with most everyone else) the camp of how the feck has it come to this that fans should even be considering questioning themselves about renewing. This is an utterly farcical and untenable state of affairs the Ashley cohorts incorporated have placed this club and it's amazing supporters.

Go on Ashley give us some selling up news ya twisted oaf.

My ticket autorenews on the price freeze thing, I think if it didn't I'd put a lot more thought into whether I'm going back or not.

My guess is that around the page 28 everything will collapse.

Monday morning again...........thanks MAG

Following a meeting with Bin Zayed Group officials they would like to put on record the following information for NUFC fans:

“Both parties have worked diligently in finalising a deal, none more so than ourselves.

“We have completed every aspect required in a takeover process.

“Press claims of no bids or Premier League approval processes are simply untrue.

“The current owners have cooperated amicably throughout this process and if a deal is not forthcoming it will not be due to lack of effort from both parties.”

That’s a pretty pointless statement. What stage are they at ? Is it still on? I hope I’m wrong but I think the inevitable is coming.
