Interesting. Roma fans have turned on him, but from the article below it sounds like he's got some sense and isn't completely clueless. Would be a decent compromise to this entire debacle.

I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

No need to. It's as relevant to us as transfer links to Messi

The Mauriss deal would get us closer to better owners than keeping Ashley now that the Saudis bid is done. And by that I mean any good owners will find it easier to buy from Mauriss than Ashley.

That’s based on absolutely nothing other than surely he can’t be as thick skinned and difficult to deal with as Ashley surely.
Mauriss isn’t interested nor Has the funds. He’s got links to Qatar and has allowed his name to be linked with us so Qatar can object to the deal and say that we have an alternative.

Not that's there's any evidence to support, but Qatar could really p*ss on KSA chips if they came in and bought us :naughty:

Would rather trust the fans, a newspaper could easily spin Ashley to be a decent owner

That's a shame, i like the sound of Hans the Funds.  Good Welsh name for a rich lad.

Yeah, that's fair I guess.

Just so sick of Ashley man. So difficult following the team with the rubbish people he keeps putting in charge.

No thanks to Pallotta, he doesn’t bomb Yemen, lash women, hack up journalists or illegally stream football.

If only i could.

Is that fella that bad, 5th in league and won their last 4 i think.

I've no doubt he'd be better than Ashley.

Mojo's bang on that they could clear this up themselves fairly simply like, although I suspect the PL are just too scared to say that Saudi Arabia walked away because they weren't going to pass the test, despite that being the most likely scenario

Imagine thinking Mauriss or some other PL approved owner will actually make much difference. The main hope with PIF was that they would have the will and resources to go straight for the top. What will Mauriss or Pallotta's ambition be other than to turn a profit? Finish 10th maybe?

Luke Edwards still prattling on.

Can he just do his f***ing job and go and find out exactly who mauriss is for a start? People are laying into him because as per he sticks a petty comment on the end of a normally valid point to provoke people.

I'm honestly glad I'm not on Twitter or I'd probably be getting visits off the police :lol:
