Still some lingering talk of legal action being taken against the PL. Hopefully they get taken to court and made to squirm.

I hate this thread <laugh>

I forget all about any supposed takeovers or ongoing legal battles until this pops up <laugh>
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?

Here's a snippet - can't believe (well I can...) that the BBC report this s***.

On its corporate website, Bellagraph Nova says it has 23,000 employees and revenues for 2019 of $12bn (£9.3bn).

Singapore-based corporate governance expert Mak Yuen Teen said it is not unusual for some companies to exaggerate their credentials or "window-dress".

"I've seen listed companies continually misrepresent themselves including on the Singapore Exchange - announcing deals that are false, using fake degrees, but this is at a whole new level," he said.

As Bellagraph Nova and its entities are not publicly listed on any stock exchanges, apart from one linked company called Axington, their claims about revenues and employees cannot be easily verified.

"It's quite unbelievable that a $12bn company with 23,000 employees appear out of nowhere. Most likely they are claiming potential partners as part of their business," added Mr Yuen, who is an associate professor of accounting at the National University of Singapore.

My mate in Singapore and I set aside some time to do a bit of research into this group. Once you scratch the surface; that's it. It's that shallow on information.

I checked out their Paris operations and very much hit the same issue.

Named as Directors etc of numerous companies with no substance of anything in the background like proper financials or history.

The way back machine has more information then anything else based on web domains <laugh>

It's all in the crumb structure.

He seems to have over-proven the bread which hints, to me at least, that something is bubbling under the surface at Newcastle United

The talk on Twitter is the loaf is cut roughly 80/10/10, the champagne says "Blanc de Noir" and there are bottles of Guinness (good things come to those who wait) and Brown Ale <scratch>.

The Italian tin. Either they're buying Juventus instead, or Santon is coming back <awe>
