    To be fair, I actually agree with you. Mike isn't taking less than £340m or so for the club, nobody's paying £340m for a Championship club. My mate in Dubai confirmed PIF were interested and everything seems to tally up - Mike's comments to his accountants, the advice I believe he got back in 2018, even now one of the biggest clues is the short term one year extension for Puma.

    You guys should advertise meth or something.

    You can turn anything into a positive. Something like "Meth - gives you energy for a working day."

    Bit of a policy shift handing contracts to Shelvey and Ritchie surely? How old are they now? 30ish? Seems strange as we'd normally offload. I assumed it was still the case as they haven't sorted Fernandez out. Given FF has outperformed those two this season, had less injuries, defenders last longer, it seems very strange indeed. Bruce seemed to suggest also that M Longstaff is proving difficult to tie down. Obviously we don't know what's been offered but Bruce saying "Lets hope he wants to stay with us" suggests he is putting pressure on him by saying they feel the offer they've made is fair?

    I know one thing. As good as Shelvey has been this season, he has been inconsistent the rest of the time. His recent form is a prime example after looking fantastic earlier in the season (still our top scorer?). If we end up with an ageing Shelvey, but lose Longstaff who I think has massive potential, it'll be very very disappointing. Nothing you can do if his head has been turned by Milan interest etc but the noises all seem centred around money. I hope his agent isn't going to **** this up for us, or the club are gonna low ball him.

    Mate, if only. I reckon we'll be on 41 and saying "end of the season triggers the buyout."

    Price has already gone up - Floyd "Money" Mayweather's involved in the takeover.

    Maybe Vince McMahon's back in too.

    They're saying the Saudi's are pushing out even more oil than usual (which is a common tactic.) This way they can force Norwegian and Russian competitors and they simply can't compete.

    It's identical to what Rockefeller did in America. Lower the price per barrel to such an extent that companies simply would lose money per barrel and go bankrupt. These price shortages are no issues for the Saudi's.

    Apparently it started because the Saudi's wanted a further cut in production to shore up the oil price while reducing global stocks. The Russians said we are happy with the price and supply as it is. So the Saudi's are now saying - are you sure about that. Russian's are about to start pumping extra to make up their income shortfall but they don't have capacity that the Saudi's do. It could get nasty for a few weeks but then Putin will blink and production cuts will be made and price will rise. It could go significantly lower though first.

    In the meantime Shale Gas suppliers in the US, who have higher production costs, will be going to the wall.

    Its ****ing crazy the likes of TalkSport report this as news <laugh>

    He promised this last time and they went into a frenzy. Floyd has clearly heard about the standards of new in this country and how gullible our fans are. Another sell out tour guaranteed.
