Toon bid hopefuls backed by New York firm


Recommended Posts

Not as far as I'm aware.

 

Something came to mind earlier this afternoon. Has Ashley been putting off the sale so that he is still the owner of NUFC when KK's tribunal is heard and therefore the compensation comes from the club rather his pocket?

 

Wouldn't surprise me in the least if it was - not that I begrudge Keegan what I believe he's rightfully entitled to.

Presumably Keegan's contract would be with the club not Ashley so it seems unlikely he could sue him personally for breaching it. Seems more likely to me that the sale might be delayed until settlement as the new owner doesn't want to pick up a contingent liability of up to 10m.

 

That's if there is to be a new owner, or there's really any sale going on at all :lol:

gettin to the end of the week now! BS as always I hate this stupid thread, only seem to keep gettin drawn to it

 

Understandable bearing in mind the impact a sale or no sale will have on the forseeable future at the club.

 

Read today that it may take the panel a fortnight to decide who wins and then a further fortnight to decide the settlement figure. That sum tho has to be paid within 7 days in full.

So they rekon about 5 weeks now ha ha :)

Its all this end of the week stuff, or important anouncement soon! I just cant believe how much of a knob and how clueless that Ashley really is with the club.

I wish the fat jellied eel eating cockney tw@ would just sell up and fuck off back to the smoke.

 

I'd love to ask him 1 question...

 

Why?

 

Why buy a club, then run it in to the ground?

 

Guess the cockneys are all jealous as fuck at how we pack the ground week in, week out, no matter how shite the team are.

 

Then again, I guess most of the football world are amazed at the support we have.

Why buy a club? Because he expected to make money.

 

Why run it into the ground? Because he hasn't got a clue how to run a football club.

 

I think it was ChezGiven who mooted the possibility that Ashley bought the club in the expectation of flicking it on to a rich Arab at a profit, but was left high and dry. Forced to hang onto the club, he filled it with his clueless drinking buddies and the rest is history.

 

Sounds about right to me. Personally I doubt it's got anything to do with Geordie hating cockneys, it's all about money imo.

This is the week!

 

All rumours and whispers are pointing to a deal being finalised this week.

 

While wise guessed that Ashley will wait for promotion, I think it more likely that he will include a clause in the sale for a bonus if / when we go up.

 

Our regular in the know, Redheugh has said he will reveal all he knows at 11.00am today!
