    LOL! No!

    This has been dead for 8 months. All this bullshit about it being "on the table" was either from BeIN Jacobs or mates of Amanda "honest guv" Staveley.

    We've now got Ashley thinking he can get £310m or whatever for this club. Looks like we're stuck with the bastard, which means I'm out for the forseeable.

    Nothing has changed

    Stay up and it will probably go through.

    Ffs obviously it's on hold... They'll wait to see where the club is in two months and discuss a price

    I said it months ago that unless they're safe it can't happen.

    They won't just cough up 300 million when they can just wait 2 or 3 months to check they aren't throwing half of it away before they can even do any work.

    At the same time Ashley won't say go on then give me 150 million now when the club might stay up and he'll be be throwing 150 million away when he could've waited 2 or 3 months.

    And so our destiny lies in the hands of Steve Bruce and our injury depleted/ravaged survivors.

    Im predicting that Joelinton scores the winning goal against Fulham that keeps us up.

    Ok, so what is your stance when we stay up and mysteriously AREN'T then sold?

    Also, what would your stance be if we went down and there was no offer for the club either?

    In my mind it is off now. certainly until the end of the season so I'm more worried about NUFC and Fulham results atm and more interestingly who will be our next suitor who want's to jump on the takeover band wagon.

    I'm hoping for something exotic like Duarte from the Phillipines using all those confiscated funds of murdered drug dealers to purchase us.
    That or Elon Musk realises he's wasting Billions on Bitcoin and going to the moon and decides to take on a football team instead.

    I think DaGrossa wants the club cheap. I think Kenyon's waiting to see as well. I'd imagine there's other US consortiums, and some from Asia. Middle East is just a load of conmen and one or two royals. Prince whatever at Sheff U is hardly setting the world alight. Mansour was a one off, will never happen again. It's getting so saturated it's becoming difficult for new money to come in.

    I think we're more than down, mate. I think we're buried. Ashley's years of promise finally coming to fruition. Everybody will FINALLY see it laid bare - how this club has been rinsed so badly for so long that relegation and stagnation in the lower leagues was utterly inevitable.

    Christ, this year's been bad, wait til next year. Mid-table or lower in the Champ is going to be mortifyingly bad.

    In Ashley’s eyes. Mission accomplished. How dare them magpies doubt his intentions.

    My stance now is that the situation is stay up and it'll happen.

    I think we're going down personally and that ends the interest from the consortium.

    I believe they'll buy west ham or maybe just a one of the big 6 tbh

    Probably.

    Can someone tell me when Justin Barnes passed his O & D test please. He’s released this statement about the takeover being “suspended” but I don’t recall him ever taking the test?

    ASM has only played 14/26 PL games this season.

    Miggy 21

    Wilson 19

    I appreciate ASM is a good player but we have played many games without him.

    Wilson they’d at is back end of March. And Miggy too.

    Time for Fraser and Joelinton to do what they get paid for.

    That is what makes their test a mockery. In what Universe are Mike Ashley, Justin Barnes and Lee Charnley fit and proper?

    Ashley - His business practices are well known. He is a crook.

    Barnes - a crook

    Charnley - under investigation by HMRC for fraud.

    Is it Charnley that’s under investigation?

    A bigger mockery is that the PL won't make a decision as they feel a non director (mbs) will make decisions yet don't care that the non director Barnes is doing just that
