If anyone was to meet the Don in person you’d quickly suss out that the guy is a chancer and a Del
Boy. Owning a club was more about status for him than it was part of a plan to make money and turn the club around.

Just cheered myself up a bit by watching Joe Kinnear trying to pronounce Derek Llambias.

"Been in discussion with David Lambaa, with Dave, with ermmmmmmm Mike"

This piracy thing that seems to be the main excuse for holding the deal up; what exactly is the issue?

BeIn Sports (Qatar) own the rights to the PL in the Middle East.
As part of an economic blockade of Qatar, Saudi Arabia banned broadcasts from Qatar into Saudi Arabia
A TV station was set up, called BeOut Sports, that appeared to pirate BeIn’s PL broadcasts via a communications satellite provider ArabSat, broadcasting these into Saudi Arabia and beyond (including France)

At issue is whether PIF (buying NUFC) is connected to BeOut and/or ArabSat. And how closely connected. And whether the fact the broadcasts have stopped matter. And lots of attendant issues.

There’s a post a few pages back from someone called “Football Laws” that is quite thorough...

Looks like Spain have been cooking the books on their death toll - thought the sudden drop just as they're trying to get tourists back looked suspicious


Hang on, there's a lot of sensationalism in that tweet to what the article says.  Yes the reporting has changed and it is confusing things but deaths have dropped massively.  Not many believed the zero deaths stat because of reporting delays.

Linked my Arsenal-supporting mate to the poll and he referred to it as the 'bruised banana' kit. I was not aware of this name for it and I'm unreasonably annoyed as it looks nothing like such a thing even with the colours.

Wow.

Seems to be a lot of evidence for the police instigating this s*** from leaving bricks about to smashing private property.
