So if the club is about to be sold or sold before the end of the season can anyone explain why Steve Bruce is still our manager? He might suit Ashley who is a big enough stubborn idiot to gamble that the oaf won't get us relegated, but surely the potential new owners would have told the fat man to get rid of the fat manager, and get in someone to keep us in the premier league or his dreams of getting the best part of 300M are about to go down the relegation drain.

Well your idea is like 'I'm in negotiations to buy a new house and selling my current but I probably would only get it the new one after Christmas or next year. But because I'm s*** scared to that the price of my house now might decrease, f*** it I'm selling it first and be homeless for a bit.'

Why sack and replace a manager of a club you aren't even sure of owning yet right now? At least if it is so guaranteed the deal is done with no chance of it falling through, then sack Bruce all you want.

I have been calling for Bruce's to be sacked all day today but I know Ashley will probably not do it.

Won't get done unless it becomes official or we're really in the mire before then imo. If it happens before the end of the season and we're relatively clear I can see them giving Bruce the rest of it unfortunately. Even still, I'm not confident that it's going through yet, I'm aware Mimms is some sort of itk and I'm aware of the arbitration but I haven't been following this all at all really, not like I was in the summer. Just can't be confident anymore. If I was I wouldn't know what I'm basing that confidence off of.

To modify the house-buying analogy a little, it's more like saying:

"I'm going to buy your house next year, subject to mortgage approval. I know my last mortgage offer fell through but I'm pretty sure I'll get approved this time, there's no reason why not So can you just build a conservatory in the garden for me now so it's ready for the summer, and then add then cost to the purchase price?"

:lol:

Aye. Something like. My head was a little heavy when typing that analogy earlier but yeah. I guess its like that. :lol:

We all know that somehow the EPL and the big 6 will find a way to f*ck us over and block this takeover. 


Ah . . "we all know" do we?

I look forward to reading your posts after the Takeover!

It's more a case of Ashley facing the prospect of Bruce devaluing his asset currently valued at £340m or replacing Bruce with someone the prospective buyers would want in charge.

I respect the opinions, and the confidence, of those thinking it'll go through but my thoughts haven't changed since news of the takeover first broke which what feels like a lifetime away now and that there's not a hope in hells chance of it happening.

I've come to terms with it and the Premier League is almost out of my life now. No longer have Sky or BT and I've watched 2 live games from that league all season (1 involving NUFC).

Still watch football from other countries on my IPTV as it will always be my favourite sport but I'm happy I've been able to more or less wash my hands of the Professional game in England now. Once the Premier League push through this Big 6 project I'd like to think that 1000s more fans from around the country will end up doing the same.

I've given up on football too. I hate how corrupt it is. I hate how they've brought politics into it. Even if this takeover goes through, I'll not be spending any money on football again. I'd watch it and probably enjoy it but my passion is gone.

I hope it goes through just to give the city a lift and to lower my old man's blood pressure.

I think that's being overly pessimistic. For me, it feels 50/50 at the moment.

So basically the house is no where near being sold so I'm not going to paint it, not going to carry out any repairs and I'm going to let the dog s*** all over the garden.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not that attached to the current St James park so when the takeover goes through I would like them knock it down and build a new one, we can just rent the SOL in the meantime

Really? I love St James' personally.

I love it's wonkiness,that it has been built around its surroundings over the years. Sure a new stadium would be flash and nice, but I think I'd miss it in its current form tbh.

Always thought that the site in below article could be a possibility, especially when the arena moves to Gateshead Quays. Looks like this development will put pay to it once and for all. Right by the river always thought it could have been a spectacular location, and kept all the benefits of city centre location.

Also never understood when we looked to build on castle leazes, why we didn’t try and secure the breweries site. When you look at the development on that land now, we could have built a great stadium there, and it would have been just across the road. Maybe the land had already been bought at that point, but I’m sure they could have traded off some of the land St James currently stands on.

Definitely think Hall compromised with the redevelopment of St James and at the very least we should have pushed on with Castle Leazes, as I think we would have got permission in the end.

I'm hoping Stifleaay's prediction is right. The PL's legal team have wilted like Steve Bruce's tiddler and we've banged application number 2 in and QC De Marco has licked the stamp personally.
