He’s sitting with Ashley and a few others having breakfast right now in the Connaught Hotel in Chelsea.

How do you know Odin?

A friend of mine goes for a swim and massage there every week or two. Text me just before 9 this morning. I asked him to check it out when he’s leaving.. not heard anything back yet.

If you can, ask him to confirm where it is exactly. I know the Connaught well - it's not Chelsea.

Well that’s where I thought it was so my mistake. Still haven’t got a text back. I asked him to snap a photo if they were still there.

Thanks for clarifying mate

Ashley is only attending the meeting because there's free food to get!
Don't think he's ever had a meeting without food(indian, pizza and now breakfast).

Indeed.

But then it turned out that Rafa didn’t get any of these assurances in writing because of an incompetent agent.

That won’t happen again.

It was a constant rumour on the old NUFC mailing list in the early 90s.

Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Annoys me seeing all the Chronicle s*** spamming on twitter when following this. Difficult to stay away even if I know that we won't find out in a while if he leaves or not.

Chronicle are usually the last to know anything, i love their Q&A's where they don't actually answer any questions because they haven't got a clue.

Hope Rafa went full John Wick during this meeting and used a pencil.
"What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." - Sir Bobby Robson

I feel like if they are both willing to sit down and talk, it's only a matter of time.  Quite calm about it, only issue for me is how long it'll take fatty to go back on whatever promises he makes.

I agree, i think Ashley being there is telling, if he really wanted rid of Rafa, he simply wouldn't be.

I feel the same way. I can't get excited until I see a few players sign before pre season starts. It will be interesting if there are any leaks in the media tonight. If there are it would tell me talks haven't gone well.
