I've spent many a workday researching CHAPS.

I'm at the ground. Staveley just came out and held up Bruce's head.

I'm fairly sure they're waiting for the euros to conclude to see who wins the golden boot

 

And then buy Stephane Guivarc'h

Luke Edwards has no fucking idea whatsoever. He's not insightful enough to have any clue what that statement might or might not mean - at this point he's no different to some random bloke offering an opinion down at the pub.

 

Added to that, his original comment somewhat contradicts his previous views on this, does it not? I thought he had said that the takeover was already dead and had been for a year now. His comments suggests that he's now decided that it wasn't in fact dead, but it now is.

 

I know we know this, but it's worth repeating - he knows the square root of fuck all about this takeover.

Tbh my interpretation is that the takeover is long since dead and last nights statement was an act of desperation. 

 

I think we’re at the point where Ashley is wanting compensation for himself rather than a takeover being approved. 
 

In addition, if the initial arbitration was deemed to be invalid it would only start the owners & directors test again with legitimate problems that haven’t gone away.

What would it achieve as an act of desperation though? I think the very most we can say about it is that it's telling us absolutely nothing other than arbitration is still ongoing, and that the club believes it has a case but has concerns about how 'fair' the final decision will be without public scrutiny. If the club didn't have a case, it wouldn't be clamouring for transparency.

 

I suppose the other interpretation would be that the Ashley knows he's lost and is seeking to poison the well ahead of the outcome being issued - but I'm not sure what he would stand to gain from that unless he's just being vindictive.

 

As for the takeover itself, I was under the impression that the Saudis had indicated that they were still prepared to look at this? I can't remember the source though so maybe it was nonsense.

It seems a valid, yet petty point to make. It was obvious already to anyone following that the Premier League are doing anything they can to keep their books shut and the drama under the rug.

 Which would be wholly out of character.

Last night I dreamt the takepver went through. So that means it is absolutely dead in the water.

 

Who did we sign in your dream? Haaland, Messi, Shola, Kuqi?

It kind of veered off into my son being signed for Tampa Bay Lightning while we were at the new disneyland in the rockies.

Yep, we're fucked.

That's what I'm convinced of. I can't see how it would strengthen their case, but it will inevitably raise questions about the legitimacy of the process. 

 

Much like the initial appeal to remove one party in the arbitration case because of suggested bias. It wasn't necessarily looking to remove the person, more to shine a light on them and seek to prevent a ruling that could be painted as biased.

Like most acts of desperation, very little. That’s kind of the point.

I think we disagree on the semantics of the phrase here somewhat - I see acts of desperation as being things like launching a nuclear missile at your enemies in the face of obliteration, which this certainly is not - but I get the overall point nonetheless.

He’s spending time, money and effort on this if he thinks he can make money out of it. Could be the takeover going through or it could be compensation.

Fucking daft cunt has spent most of his time making this whole thing toxic by going on the wind-up constantly and then inventing another competitive takeover bid in an attempt to sell papers. The sooner he steps over the line and is demoted to covering local, page-filling bullshit, the better

If there's a takeover and we sign Kuqi, the papers can have Kuqi Coup as their headline for free.

Luke Edwards is a cock. It’s clear no one showed enough interest to his first attempt so he has kept going. As Rayvin said the bloke is completely clueless, I’m not saying the takeover will go through but the bloke just keeps repeating its dead when it clearly hasn’t been. The bloke thought a clearly fraudulent bid by an American who lived in the most generic middle class American house was the true bid and the Saudi stuff was just made up :lol: what a twat. 
 

I see the attempt to make things public as just more brinksmanship, the PL keep trying to put off any decision or proceedings and now NUFC are trying to give them another thing they have to argue. I don’t see it as saying a whole lot one way or another, it’s no surprise at all to me that Edwards is trying to proclaim it means the bid is dead the same stupid cunt didn’t understand the bid in the first place so wrote a piece saying that means it’s not truthful. I don’t think it’ll happen fwiw, I think Ashley is just aiming for compensation and the Saudis have probably moved on but that’s just complete guesswork, I’m confident I know more about all this than Edwards though the fucking gimp. 
 

Imo it’s a story he wrote off from day 1 as he was traveling to the UEFA cup final and couldn’t be arsed at the time, then rather than climb down he just continued to double down on his position that it was all made up. It’s also all happening in business and legal areas he clearly doesn’t understand, which is fine but rather than do his job and maybe talk to people that know these processes he’s just carried on taking the lazy option and saying it’s all bollocks. The blokes stuff isn’t worth a second of anyone on here’s time, there’s far more insightful stuff wrote on here than anything that bloke writes.

He's spending a bit of the non-refundable deposit the consortium paid him isn't he? :lol:
