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

Dorty bastards.

See the usual suspects are wanking themselves daft over this. Never mind that the Saudis are massively involved in F1, golf, advertising on sky etc. I’m more than happy to miss out if this is the reason, but honestly it was never the PL’s concern, it’s delusional to suggest there’s no links to murders and other horrific things from any current PL owners. I don’t have much of a point tbh, I just hope the same journalists won’t be flocking to cover events like the Qatar World Cup and we really can push back against murderous regimes/people getting heavily involved in sports but sadly they will and nothing at all will change, we will still have articles wanking off about PSG etc, the same as they don’t give a fuck about Khashoggi’s death other than it now being a tool to block any takeover. 
 

Well now that’s over we are probably in a worse spot than pre-takeover talk, with an even more disinterested Ashley :lol:

The fact that it’s still going ahead says all you need to know on that score.

 It's ok, the 6,500 deaths directly related to preparations for the Qatar World Cup were only migrants.

All worthwhile considering Qatar’s great footballing tradition, burgeoning population and global reach. Eh Sepp?

Apparently, the chairman we tried to oust for bias was the one that advised the PL just before the 'no owner accused of piracy' bit was added to the O&D Test.  I can see why that might make you think they'd be biased against the Saudi case. What with the Saudis being the only potential owners to be accused of piracy, and all that.

 

Funny to see Ashley wanting transparency, and fighting for what the club and the area deserve.

The worrying thing is that the EPL won the argument especially on the ground that the arbitration for now is just about the question if KSA has to be seen as a director. Whatever the result is going to be it will probably lead to new issues arising.

Timely manner my arse.

Does this even really matter? I mean, if it turns out that the takeover could have gone through, that doesn't mean it's suddenly back on the table, does it? I guess I can see an argument that we wouldn't be pursuing this if we hadn't had indications that the takeover would still be an option, but I can also see the argument that Ashley will want to extract some kind of settlement or compensation with or without the Saudis coming back into the picture.

If I understand it correctly, the arbitration process is a senior legal representative from the EPL making their case, a senior legal representative from NUFC making their case. and a senior "impartial" legal figure making a final judgement.

 

Except the impartial arbitrator is a bloke who was previously paid by the EPL and advised them that they should update their O&D test to exclude any nations that pirate premier league games...

 

On what planet is this going to be an impartial process? Surely the case is effectively decided in favour of the EPL before it even starts?

It’ll be lawyers from both sides arguing the case and a panel who decide the outcome. The guy we have a problem with is chairman of the panel but there’s no way he should be involved given his past.
