If it happens before Christmas I will open my out of date cans!

How out of date? I've got a can with a best before date of 2014, I promise I'll drink that if the takeover happens. :)

(I should add I got given it as a joke a couple of years back and it's in the back of the cupboard. Normally I am NOT this lax with alcohol)

I've still got a shearers testimonial broon ale, and a shearers bar opening broon ale, I'd probably go blind if I touched them.

I did have 2 of these beers and opened one a year or so ago. It did taste a little "metallic", but otherwise it was OK and did me no lasting harm. Properly-sealed cans or bottles should be fine. Wouldn't fancy working my way through a case of it though. :D

The only thread on this forum that truly matters, until we’re under new ownership nothing else sadly matters.

We can all whinge about Bruce as much as we want, but until this takeover goes through the club is pointless in its current guise.

Ideal scenario
They take over in next few weeks
Bruce is chucked
New manager gets 6-8 weeks to work with players to see what he has
We significantly strengthen in January

I can see why the consortium have set a deadline. Get in there before Bruce causes irreversible damage.

Who would want to buy on the basis of last nights performance?

Do mimms and ando7 count ?

Even if there’s not a positive update, just lie and give me one.

Their updates are good to read but I have to tell myself that if they are genuine, we've heard similar before so they don't mean much.
They could also be wums. I feel that they aren't but they could be.

As he's always ahead of the curve with the teams sheet, do we surmise he has someone feeding him that from inside the club ?

I get that Ando has history in getting lineups right. Whether that means he has a line into the takeover is a different matter.

And what are Mimms’ credentials? Anyone remember?

We don’t care if they are being truthful or just spouting s***. The sad state is, it’s the only respite we have got in this whole depressing club.

We shouldn't be encouraging people to spout even more s*** :lol:

If these guys genuinely believe their sources are legit then fair enough, but I'd rather people didn't make up rumours only for it to be bullshit as that increases the depression rather than alleviate it.

He said there was going to be an announcement one way or the other about a week before the club announced that the PL had rejected the takeover.

He also knew about Ryan Fraser's arrival before anyone else.

i'm at the point where just any takeover needs to happen. just need to get rid of Bruce. any half decent coach coming in would do better with this squad.
whoo cares if upsets shelvey and he has to work harder to get into the team.

Interesting if this is the type of thing we might expect if the takeover happens



OVG JOINS FORCES WITH CO-OP TO DEVELOP THE UK’S BIGGEST AND MOST EXCITING NEW ARENA IN MANCHESTER
We’re delighted to announce a 15-year partnership with the Co-op on the development of one of the most sustainable and socially responsible arenas in Europe.
Our exciting proposals deliver a £350million private investment, thousands of jobs, and help continue the regeneration of the Eastlands area, with a projected boost to the local economy of £1.5bn over the next 20 years.
The partnership, which will see the arena named Co-op Live, will generate around £1m in donations to good causes, distributed via the Co-op Foundation. The arena will support Manchester’s net zero carbon agenda and help to tackle food poverty via a zero-food waste initiative.
Once open, Co-op will offer its members a host of exclusive benefits, including access to pre-sale tickets, discounts on food and beverage, and the chance to win free tickets and exclusive, money can’t buy, backstage VIP experiences.

I think most of us have been at this point, but regarding Ashley, for 10+ years. Just to get rid of Ashley. Bruce is irrelevant really.

Well, right now, Bruce is just making things worse. When we had Rafa, we lived on with Ashley but at least the team was worth of our supporters.

But with Bruce, this is just unpalatable to a point I don't care Ashley is still our owner. Bruce is arrogant, blames everyone else bar himself and is a bag of s*** excuses.

I don't care if someone is just making things up and stringing us a long (don't think they are for what it's worth)

But this potential takeover is the only hope left. As someone else said I'm not going to bother caring and getting flustered over how s*** Bruce is because it's all irrelevant unless this goes through.

If it does I just hope there's still time left in the season to salvage something and avoid relegation.

I dont even get angry at Bruce. He's a s*** manager, we knew that when he came here, always has been always will be. If we get shot of him the next manager will be of similar shitness.

Mike Ashley is the 1 who employs the likes of Bruce and Charnley. He is the one responsible for ALL of our problems. Until he goes we will remain an utterly pointless club which is why I f***ing pray, Nick Di Marco sorts this takeover out. Will he? I have no idea but I cling onto the hope as it's all we have left as Newcastle fans.
