:thup: Caught some of it myself and he was so defensive it was unreal.  Just constant whining in response to reasonable questions.

For some reason this morning I decided, instead of working on my dissertation, to watch the first half an hour of Ashley's recent grilling by MPs. For years we've talked about what a prick he is, based almost entirely on our experiences of him as a football owner... but watching him publicly shout and ball and squirm and gesticulate really makes it a reality. He really is a deeply unpleasant person and one of those that, regardless of all the NUFC and Sports Direct stuff, you just wouldn't want to spend five minutes in the company of. Massively defensive, massively argumentative, just a rancid ball of hot air.

Incidentally, having watched that, it couldn't be more obivous now that the Sky News feature that followed (including the section with the pre-rehearsed purring about selling the club) was clearly set up in his favour. Ten minutes of questions which simply played into his hands and stroked his ego. "HMMMM." Urgh.

I wouldn't need 5 mins.

Reet.  :lol:

Whatever.

it's soooooo f***ing predictable
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

It's quite funny how he got it all to go away by inventing a fake takeover rumour, almost to the day that the same thing happened last year, proper laughable. Get it in your calendars for next December.

I'm surprised the British Empire didn't use this tactic, might've stopped Gandhi kicking off. "We're leaving anyway, see? We're just about to leave. No need to protest." Us Indians would've piped down like NUFC fans. #WaitForIndependence

i mean in some ways you've got to give MA & KB maximum respect, they've got the number of our fans and can play them like a cheap flute...it's actually too easy for them at this point, they're just f***ing phoning it in

That pretty confirms that he's doing this for Ashley and they're in on it together then.

The issue I have is with the making legitimacy of the bids the be all and end all. This year, just like last year the intention of the other party is there, but that doesn't change the fact that they're dealing with Mike Ashley who'll move the goalposts to prevent a sale after he's used the situation to stop protests.

Couldn't even delay going in for 11 mins? Really?

This is my view as well. The interest from Kenyon might well be there, but it will probably be another Staveley/PCP scenario. They will want to negotiate, Ashley will tell them to f*** off, and in the meantime he'll spin it out as long as possible as a reason to avoid spending like every other January.

Keith's definitely been playing FM, like.

December : The Newcastle United board have placed an embargo on transfers as a result of the rumours surrounding a possible takeover. These restrictions will remain in place until the outcome of any takeover has been resolved.

Feb 1st : Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley is thought to be close to pulling the plug on a consortiums proposed takeover of the club, claiming he had not seen evidence that the group possessed enough finance.

The news will come to a disappointment to many who had previously thought the takeover to be progressing well. (suckers)
