Aye god knows what mess they’ve walked into. :lol: 

 

Professional business people wading through a skip full of Donnay socks to see if they can find Bruce’s contract somewhere while Lee Charnley plays Nintendo

14 years of mismanagement and neglect. When Ashley bought the club, CT was in his late 40s. He's nearly mid 60s now. 

 

If he'd hired a new life coach this time last week, they would quite rightly still be stood, mouth agape, one hand on one hip, the other hand on their forehead, just surveying the wreckage and trying to make sense of it all. 

 

It's the same with the club.

Look, I don't know much about the Middle East or the Saudi People's Front but maybe they're waiting for Brucey to slip up by uttering 'JHVH' so they have a pretence?

:lol:

Close enough. First draft had you starting at early 40s, but it didn't get past the cunt of an editor in my head. :lol:

 

I was 31 man. So depressing.

So to be clear, the prevailing view is that the operational performance of a previously profit making business is impacting negatively on their ability to set out clarity concerning who should take over the running of the football side of the club, and that even if this runs on to the weekend and into the Spurs game, all this will mean is that Ashley knobbled them (in a way that couldn't be picked up and therefore prepared for during due diligence, but which prevents them from setting about with what we assume their plan would have been had everything been totally perfect).

 

I mean it's possible I guess, and I want to stress that I am in no way calling into question their ability to run the club. I am merely saying that they may well have been caught on the hop by all of this given the speed at which it went through, and whereas during their first attempt to purchase the club they were talking to Pocchetino and Rafa before they'd even gotten the deal over the line, here they appear to be chasing around a bit. The media may well have entirely invented all of that to fill the silence that's otherwise coming from the club, but it remains somewhat odd that Bruce is still in post, and I can see it being a bit confusing indeed for the staff. However, maybe they've had private assurances about everything.

 

Still though, it'll be interesting to see where we end up.

As people have been saying at decent well run clubs there's usually an infrastructure, a brain trust of executives and managerial staff who have extensive knowledge of football and the football world, and the skills and contacts that enable them to navigate said world. These people, CEO.s, managing directors, directors of football, etc. would engage in detailed meetings in order to decide upon the best course of action in order to move in the direction of a pre-agreed vision for how they want the club to be. Currently at Newcastle we have Penfold and the tea lady.

I’d say realistically we only have the tea lady

Aye, but shouldn't they have known that it didn't have these things? That's my issue with this, there's no possibility that they've gone in blind on a £300m takeover and been surprised by what's there. Which means that they either intended to wait as they're doing, i.e. part of the plan, or something has thrown them off.

As people have been saying, Simon Jordan for example who can say the odd sensible thing when he's not licking his own arse, it could be the case that Staveley,, the Reubens, even Yasir Al-Rumayyan the new chairman, were surprised by the speed at which the climb down and resolution over piracy occurred. That really seems to be the only reason the deal wasn't going through. So you can know what the club doesn't have in detail all you want, but if you have no definite date of takeover you can't plan anything or line anybody up.

I expect that major decisions like sacking will need to be signed off by the PIF. That will require things to move through PIF channels in Saudi and who knows how long that takes. They won’t have preapproved something like this as it’s all moved very fast, and presumably it wont be just about Bruce but the football structure and who they appoint there

Well yeah that's what I've been saying too, several times. They've been caught out by the speed of it.

 

Was accused of tackling it like a mackem for that sentiment but I'm glad we've worked it through :lol:

Warnock:

 

“He’s a good manager, a good man. I think he deserves a little bit better in terms of respect after the way he’s played in his career."

 

“When I see fans knocking on his car as he’s going out of the training ground, surely they can afford some security at a place like that? It just disappoints me."

 

“He’ll get another job, you don’t realise what it’s like, the restrictions that he’s managed under for so many years, he’s been unlucky in the fact that he’s had to take the full brunt."

 

“I do feel for him, but he’ll come again, he’ll go away and he’ll come back and somebody else will get a good manager.”
