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

The first thing to point out is there may be less to all this than meets the eye. Many of the world’s economies are bracing themselves for a deep and painful recession. The Covid-19 crisis has devastated Saudi Arabia’s oil revenues, driving a £22.3bn deficit in the second quarter of 2020. The International Monetary Fund estimates the economy could shrink by 6.8% this year. The country has already been forced to triple VAT and cut benefits. In this context, perhaps it has simply decided that ploughing untold fortunes into a huge, open-ended project with a worrying reliance on Jonjo Shelvey may not be the most propitious investment.

 

This seems to make a lot of sense. We probably all look like a bunch of whoppers now with the way we’ve been carrying on :unsure:

Yeah they should wait until the economy recovers so they have to pay more. Terrible time for buyers.

Personally I think they pulled the plug because they didn’t want to answer the questions regarding who ultimately would be in control. Suggests that the deal was shady in some respect. The economic uncertainty probably didn’t help. This, however, is baseless conjecture on my part. 
 

That being said it’s far more logical than some of the rubbish I’m reading. Some of our fans are only about a week away from declaring Richard Masters a reptilian who has taken human form and is in cahoots with Qatar and the Illuminati to stop NUFC from being taken over.

I’d have thought Everton fans would be more arsed about their main rivals winning their 19th league title the season after their 6th European Cup. Although tbf the rivalry is a bit one-way

Or the fact that they spent millions, appointed a good manager and still only finished a couple of points above an abysmally shit team like us.
