My take on it... it's happening. We'll be hearing news this Friday or maybe at the start of next week.

What I'm worrying is not about: "is this happening or not?" but "is the next owner will be better than Ashley or not?". And all the sign about the new owner is negative.

Well we have to make sure we have something to be negative about just in case something positive happens. There must be balance.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.

Fixtures are out tomorrow yet we don't even have a clue who will own the club, who the manager is, who and if there are new signings etc when when the season kicks off.

Part of me finds it incredible that the press haven’t had a sniff of this since the BZG statement was released. Then I realise, this is how takeovers should/do happen. Strict NDA’s in place, no leaks, announced ‘out of the blue’.

Had a dream last night that a press conference was quickly called for today. Takeover or Rafa, I didn’t get to the reason since I woke up to go to the toilet.

Possibly not Almiron this window, but certainly Ayoze, Lejeune and Schar (perhaps Lascelles and Dubravka too) are certain to call their agents to find a new club on 1 July if Rafa leaves. Swap Schar for Clark in JP's team, and add "Manager: M. Hughes" and we're on a year-long farewell lap of the Premier League before sinking for a long time.

I was absolutely convinced he should be out of contract this year too. I'm totally positive that I read stuff about him going on loan and he would be out of contract at the end of his loan. Mandela effect?

fair point
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

now that Shola has a contract with the club he is well placed to take charge when the takeover falls through and Rafa walks.

No takeover and Shola becomes the manager?  I think that moment would be when football officially dies.

I think if it is as close as some people are saying, I'm sure these lads in UAE will want to get it done before their weekend, i.e. by COB tomorrow.
I really like Fenham Mag. Great guy and a very good poster.
