Relegation Again ?

Recommended Posts

I’m afraid to report I don’t think the takeover will happen before Christmas now. Ashley is away on holidays, the PL would still have to do it’s fit and proper person test. The mood music isn’t encouraging. 

 

That’s not to say it won’t eventually happen.

It's already done.

It's been said for a fortnight it wouldn't happens before Xmas. There's a rumoured agreement that Ashley will buy players and Staveley will pay him back.

 

its make or break in January. If we don't have at least 2 new players in the first XI after the window then we are as good as down.

 

Ideally we need a GK, LB, CDM, no.9 and no.10 but that's never gonna happen. A goalscorer and goalkeeper are the most likely buys imo

Aye apparently he has fucked off on holiday and left his son-in-law in charge of this :lol: if it wasn’t Ashley I’d never believe it. 

It's cause it's all done bar the paperwork.

It would be logical if he was to accept PCPs offer, thing is after publicaly stating that he wanted to sell it he lost a lot of leaverage iyam. If he's holding out for top dollar then it looks like he's fucked himself with his "naked ambition" to sell.  Also when sky were putting it around last week (no doubt via Keith Bishop) that it was almost done it made me think he's not that bothered about selling and it's just a ploy to blame PCP if/when they walk away next week.

Says who?

 

surely it makes sense to expedite the paperwork to sort out the transfer window rather than put it all on the back burner

Done. Rafa will get funds for Jan.

I hope you’re right Parky. 

It just always astounds me that the bloke keeps putting people like Lee Charnley, his son in law, or brother in a room full of sophisticated financiers, lawyers, etc and seems miffed that the negotiations don’t go his way.

It's cause contrary to popular belief he actually runs everything. Schlepping about with all the files in a plastic Tesco bag. :D

Parky being confident has the opposite effect to me...

 

If everything is agreed there is no need for secrecy in my opinion as the foreseeable change of the mood around the club would be a massive boost.

The "limited funds" illusion might help us sign some players in Jan! Once the Sultan gets announced we'll start getting ridiculous quotes

Wist Am could easily put 3 or 4 in against us next weekend.

They really won't. :up:

 

We need a little bit of surgery in January basically. A LB, a CM that can screen the back 4 and play a bit of football when required, a GK that isn't a complete retard, a ST and a creative midfielder who can play no. 10. The worry is the question of is Rafa actually going to get the funds he wants. He's reiterated in press conferences he doesn't know, that could be him staying quiet because it's daft to just reveal your budget publicly (which it is) or he actually just doesn't know.

Rafa won't know what he's getting until someone tells him if we're sold or not. Any talk of how much or who is irrelevent till then and if we're not sold it'll be a new manager we'll be needing before any players.

The question wasn’t whether we’ll be sold, eventually. It’s whether it’s an imminent done deal. My understanding is that isn’t the case. What makes you think otherwise, Parky?
