I've fancied next Tuesday as 'D Day' for a while, so that's where my money is btw.

Any reason why Tuesday in particular?

No - absolutely no logic behind it whatsoever, just a gut feel.

If the new owners and authorities are worried about the prospect of thousands converging on St James' Park then I think they'd announce the takeover via a tweet from @PIF_en, late in the 1st half of a match.

By announcing during the 1st half of a match they can be assured that NUFC supporters are (almost) all, likely, already inside in front of a television watching the game and that fewer of the supporters will rush to the ground because they have to watch the game first.  This means the police would have time to erect barriers on surrounding roads to keep fans from congregating at the ground.  Whilst NUFC fans will undoubtedly pour into the streets as a result of the announcement, the health authorities will be keen to prevent them from gathering into large groups.  So keeping them away from the ground would be the mission.

Just a theory.

I’ve been thinking that too lately it’s the point of minimum impact as police are apparently concerned.

If approved I’d expect Bruce to be told on afternoon of 28th, players told in the Man City teamtalk, and Gary Lineker to be handed a club statement right before kickoff. Shearer will then tell fans not to go to stadium.

I hate this 'good things don't happen to us' line, sounds like permanent victim mentality mode....but the thing is, in this case it feels valid. :lol:

Ever since it became clear that this wasn't going to pass without a hitch, it just seems impossible to imagine us as being the richest club in the world. Nah. Nee way, f*** that, it's not happening.

Is the question when will the PL inform the relevant parties if they successfully passed the tests or when it will be publicly announced to us plebs?

Went with the 'something else' option.  Personally think the PL have already 'said aye'.  It's just a timing thing now for press release etc.

The GOOD thing about how long this has taken is that it obviously means both parties are seeking a way to meet the terms and approve the Takeover.

The longer it has gone on - the better.

If it was going to be NO (which it never could be as the club is sold already) then it would have been a pretty QUICK result !!

It’s been reported already that it’s a consultative process rather than a blanket yes or no. Clearly conversations are happening regarding the piracy and actions are being taken as a result. I can only see one outcome now and that’s a positive one.
The PL will want this to happen because it has potential to increase their revenue significantly. The government won’t want anything to happen that will p*ss off one of their biggest trading partners, so I imagine they’re getting involved as well.

Saudi Arabia is one of the UK’s most important trading partners. The UK exported £6 billion worth of goods and services to Saudi Arabia in 2018 (ONS, 2019). British companies present in the market include Shell, GlaxoSmithKline, BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and Unilever.

lets knock up a statue quickly so we can go and tear the c*** down
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

I'm being optimistic by voting the end of next week I'm confident it'll go through though, when is anyones guess.

Still this.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."
