I've spent many a workday researching CHAPS.

I don’t know Callum.  But you weren’t arsed when it came to your own website (https://realcombatmedia.com), with its in depth coverage of Joshua vs Ruiz II so why are you arsed now? Fuck off

I think it's fair to say that the journalists aren't winning hearts and minds from our lot on this.   We're going to have a club-wide siege mentality at this rate. As Strawb says, thick skin

There'll be plenty sacking off a home game against Shrewsbury Town in favour of Mandy's Mags. Especially young kids and those from the border tribes.

NUFC

"Fun88eng will remain as the clubs primary partner after a long term agreement was reached"

This doesnt look good for the takeover 

Apparently the Puma deals been extended as well

Doesnt look like he's thinking of going anywhere soon

The Mirror quoting Steve Bruce:

“I would envisage our budget is not going to be as big as what it was going to be in January before all this started.

“There are big discussions to be had but we are still always trying to go and find another player or two or three or four.

“That’s always going to be my job, will knock on and break down the door because my job is to make sure we are competitive when we start up again.

“It’s a difficult league and just spending money doesn’t guarantee you anything…it’s vitally important that we keep working on that and trying to find a new Allan [Saint-Maximin] or new Almiron, that’s the key to it, the success of bringing people in who improve you.”

They'll have left the shirt sponsor issue as long as they possibly could have. Next season's shirts are probably going into production very soon and a decision would have had to be made. There's possibly some sort of break clause in there that allows us out of the deal at the end of next season.

I thought they had strict anti gambling laws in S.A. I cant see them having that on the shirts for a full season

I think it's against PL rules to change sponsors mid-season. The exception being situations like the collapse of Northern Rock where we had the patch which looked so, so good.

It's the end of the season now with  just 2 games left. The signs are there wont be a takeover. Andy Carroll 's 1 year extension, Manquillo's new 4 year contract. Bruce talking about his budget for next season. The extensions for fun88 & Puma. It all looks a bit ominous regarding a S.A. takeover.

The club has to proceed as if the takeover won't happen. It's no indication that it won't happen but without doing what they've done then we could be left with no sponsor, kit provider and needing to sign two extra players should the worst happen.

I understand the club must proceed. But last week people were saying the Saudis have probably quietly identified the new manager & potential new signings. So I doubt we'd have been short of players if this takeover was imminent. Plus Carroll's hardly set the place on fire since his return. As for the sponsorship its reportedly one of the worst in the league why bother extending it.I want rid of Ashley as much as anybody but I can see him being here for next season with this lot happening

if the PL wanted to block it, do you not think they would have done so already? they have all the political cover they need if that was their intention.

But turn it round if they'd wanted to pass it, it could have happened weeks ago. I'm like everyone I havent a bloody clue what's going on. But linking things together it's not looking very clever really.

If that's true then it'll also be one of the cheapest in the league to pay off if the takeover happens.

I think it's clear that this isn't a matter of saying yes or no based on their application. It's likely that the PL may have set a number of conditions before the takeover can be approved and those conditions are in the process of being met.

the UK government wants it to pass so it is highly unlikely the PL will block it. the delay is because the PL has a strong hand and is demanding that the Saudis meet certain demands before it is approved. if there was a reluctance from SA to bargain, the deal would have been off a long time ago.

I honestly hope your right & I'm a million miles wrong I guess we'll soon see.
