This all sounds very professional, we must have one of the smallest staff in the country on the lowest wages (and he still took the taxpayers money) but it will feel very strange supporting a proper club again.

Apparently they’ve been interviewing sporting directors in France. Hopefully Luís Campos. Very highly rated, he’s the one who bought those Monaco players  that knocked Man City out the champions league and signed the likes of Fabinho Lemar and B.Silva etc

Where’s this from?

As with every single previous "takeover", I refuse to get even remotely excited until the ink is actually dry on the contract.

I believe you. Honestly. 'Needs time though' is completely correct. By my guestimation, about another 10 or so  years?

...Let's not rush things. Let's drive all those fecking Geordies insane. Let's milk the club for all I can in the next few years until it's a pile of worthless rubble. A bit like my retail empire. Let's spin some more 'takeover' s*** every six months or so just to stop those feckers actually doing anything remotely useful about my rape of the club I own. I own, no other bugger. God I fecking hate those Geordie scum and will make them suffer. I reckon their s*** club is a good cash cow for at least another ten years or so. Relegations? Don't give a f***. They seem to climb back pretty quickly. Feck, they're so fecking thick, they see what I'm doing but keep on buying their s*** season tickets, no matter how much I lift the price of the fecking things. 50,000 for every game? What brain dead morons they are. They even sing the praises of that useless dinosaur of a fat c*** manager I bought for the ungrateful sods. What is his name by the way??

Take over? Sure, it will happen. I promise you.

Deluded c***s.

Personally I don’t believe any of it.  Twitter will get bored and news will just stop coming.  Spend your energy trying to get the press to report the s*** show that the club is rather than this bullshit.

It's real and its happening. Just a shame the leaks came out and all the speculation followed. If that leak hadn't happened we'd be none the wiser and it would be like most high value acquisitions - going along nicely in the background without any public focus and at the pace suitable for both parties.

This is the 'optimism' thread, so don't p*ss in it and tell us its wet. Kindly f*** off to another thread to be miserable/logical/whatever.  :thup:

Don’t spoil it for the rest of us then....we probably know it’s bollocks but at least let us have a few weeks/months of positivity before the inevitable happens....
