Making a Molester , Season 2 for that Sunderland Netflix special

He represents Ashley's model in such undiluted shitness that no, he does not deserve any support. Change needs to be forced, he needs to be out of the club because crap, old managers ready for the kna

Get in, Rafa. Far too many managers talking about how they wouldn't want to disrupt the game and sabotage the "entertainment". Like football is a show in which racism must occasionally be tolerated, r

:lol: I feel a bit sorry for Pards, nobody will go anywhere near him after his West Brom performance. He still speaks highly of his time here which I think is big of him tbh, there's plenty who have had our supporters wrath to a lesser extent than he did and carry a much bigger chip around

I can't help but think that the way this scenario is  being dragged out, Rafa will probably reluctantly leave  because of Ashley's dilatory approach to reality, and Charnley's ineptness in doing business.

Can't help but think the take-over may be mythical because of no concrete evidence that there has actually been a bid made. If an offer of 350 million has really been made you'd think Ashley would snap it up and laugh all the way to the bank, and the takeover would be progressing swiftly.

If the Sheikdom are for real, and have made an offer, you'd think they would be making overtures to keep Rafa on board, but no gossip leaks as there usually is.

Maybe the deal is a week away from being completed? Maybe the new owners have already been in touch with Rafa and told him to sit tight?

At this stage we should maybe refrain from shitting our keks, though I understand for you Noelie that is a pre-existing condition.

Aye, that's where I am with it as well. And that means there's only one thing for it: a mental 6 months with Gattuso at the helm.

Sometimes maybe good sometimes maybe shit

Aye, it’s a £350m deal going through multiple sets of lawyers, as well as three different ways of doing business (the Emirati way, the British way, and the vomiting into a fire place way). On top of all that they’re also going through numerous bureaucratic bodies, namely ones that make a fucking hash of giving, or rescinding, player bans. 

 

As others have said, this lot have been vocal throughout, another key point is we’ve heard nothing from Ashley’s side which is different from the Staveley and Kenyon attempts. As Isegrim mentioned, the establishment of the HoldCo is another positive sign, I get it’s not a huge expense but I don’t see why you’d go through those steps before you were feeling confident of a deal.
