    I'm having a hard time believing that the PL would so openly bloody the nose of an existing rights partner tbh...

     

    Having said that, I also feel as though this wouldn't have happened without a conclusion having been reached one way or the other, unless the whole situation with NUFC is far less important to SA than we think it is.

    My thoughts exactly, NUFC is just a side bet, the main pot is broadcasting across MENA

    The Arabian bloke on twitter that gave us the timeline of tomorrow for a big announcement has apparently been confirmed as one of the sheikh's lawyers.

    His Twitter feed portrays him more of a Journo and Manure fanboy than a lawyer, also a lawyer would surely be bound by confidentiality craic?

    Assuming it's not just out of pure spite, all I could suggest for the reason behind such a farce of a window is that Ashley's accepted he won't get what he wants in a sale and is therefore gambling that Rafa's connection with the fans keeps him here and his managerial ability keeps us up. We're just about coping so far, it's not like we're cut adrift at the bottom of the league and I don't think we've been in the bottom 3 since the opening weekend. So it probably seems like a decent bet.

    He then takes the unspent transfer and TV money to top up whatever he gets from the sale, cuts his losses and runs.

    Not cut adrift...yet! The teams around us have strengthened this month though, so it could be just a matter of time.

    It's alright lads. Dennis Wise has chipped in with some reassuring news that Mike Ashley is reluctant to sell because he only wants to sell to a buyer that is going to take the club forward and not sell to a buyer that is only coming in to make a quick buck from the next TV deal money.

    That's a relief. We wouldn't want anyone like that.

    What a snivelling little cunt he is!
