I have no doubt he planned the HOF buyout news to land this morning.

Can’t wait to see how they’ll have the books fiddled in the next set of accounts.

My money is on that 144m loan still there and in full.

If Charnley was in anyway a fan of the club he would of resigned. He must of given fatty a bro-job after a few stella's and the fat man got it on his phone.

He's bought HOF so that he has an outlet in which to sell his wallpaper, and thus raise money for transfers.

Maybe Staveley will up her offer now that the club comes with it's own chain of department stores.

My only hope this season is for the perfect storm of the following:

- Continued damage to his brands and KBA by The Magpie Group, Ashley Out, and the fans etc
- The club finding itself in relegation trouble
- Rafa planting a seed in our more zombified fans to take action
- Staveley or someone else tempting him with a £350m offer and Ashley thinking that he may as well.

As hope goes, it's really slim. I don't think there's a chance of anything happening at all until Rafa's gone, but by then Rafa will be gone, so it's still f***ing s****.

Ashley will have a lot on his plate now so we need to make the Mike Ashley brand so toxic that if will make his life so much easier if he just gets rid of us

People linking the House of Fraser buyout to our lack of transfer spend are making us look a bit thick.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Are they hell.

Linking the club's incoming funds with Ashley's buyout, definitely. But there's a clear and obvious link between the club's lack of spending and Ashley's investment elsewhere.

Got to disagree. It's his desire to reach the aim (staying in the prem while spending as little as possible). Do you really think if the HoF deal wasn't in the offing NUFC would have spent more ?

This. NUFC's transfer business does not affect whether Sports Direct acquire House of Fraser ffs. They're not all little pots of money that Ashley moves around as he sees fit  :lol:

Most people know this but its an emotional thing to find something else to have a go at Ashley, and my god theres a lot, but keep it factual or we look daft. Sing somerhing better, more questioning than get out of club you fat cockney b******, then the medi may listen and ask it themselves. We all saw how Ashley doesnt like being questioned.

No I don't, but that's irrelevant to the point that he invests in other areas but not in NUFC. It doesn't make anyone look thick at all, it's the reality of the situation.
