  1. The way he prepares reminds me of another Spaniard. Man Utd look out of ideas already.
  2. Anyone else think that Emery would be a good fit for us? Excellent in Spain, hounded out of London. Tactical genius.
  3. Not voting until Lee Dixon is an option. I know it was the League Cup, but piss is still boiling....
  4. Front page of the KSA's English language newspaper this morning. Another big financial backer of the £300 million ($390 million) bid for Newcastle United football club has come out in favor of a takeover led by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. The Reuben brothers, multibillionaire businessmen who want to buy 10 per cent of the club, said on Monday they were “very disappointed” when the bid was withdrawn late last week after months of stalling by the Premier League in England. “We would welcome any resurrection of talks and progress with the Premier League and are a
  5. Bein have said absolutely nothing about this in the prematch waffle before Chelsea v Norwich, and chose to focus on Man City's ban being lifted & Mourinho's reaction to it. It's on!
  6. Don't forget that Qatar also spunk loads of money in the UK: IAG, Harrods, the Shard and a majority shareholding in Veet to keep gorilla hands presentable on Bein Sports.
  7. Are you sure it's only 40m? Bein have the second biggest deal after Sky/BT. Also, it's the PL that have breached the contract as they haven't put on the games as per their obligations.
  8. Long time lurker here, based in Middle East. I am not a dentist. A couple of theories of mine regarding the delay or possible cancellation of the takeover: 1.

To get one over the Saudis, I wouldn't be surprised if Bein is trying to use their missed/pending payments for March, April and May as leverage to scupper the
  9. Guardiola and Pogba to join Man City in the summer, according to BeIn Sports
  10. Their 52 week high is about 30% greater than their 52 week low, and they are somewhere in the middle of that range at the moment. I wouldn't call the publishing/education industry a safe bet... ITK alert
  11. Don't you mean Lee Dixon, or have I got the wrong game?
  12. Adcortyl was excellent for getting rid of them but the cathwords stopped making it.
  13. Interest is simply rebadged as 'profit' or 'mark up' in Islamic finance. I've got a current account, Visa card and car loan with Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank here in the UAE. 'Profit' charges are on a par with or lower than the interest I would pay with HSBC here in the UAE or back home, just packaged differently. However, I think it's the practice of Wonga charging mental interest rates that can seen as financially 'unislamic', with regards to the 'balance between moral and material requirement': http://www.adib.ae/understanding-islamic-banking-0 For example, my car belongs to ADIB unti
