Are you saying you were speaking to the Qataris suggesting Southampton as the team they should buy into and suggested to them about teaming up with said ex of ours. That they were both up for it until our ex decided against it, and I could guess as to why that was/is. Why would the Qataris only have been interested in us if teaming up too with our ex? That could have been a wild ride! Is our ex part of any Qatari takeover regardless of club? I.e will he turn up at Newcastle now if that goes through? I understand if you can’t or don’t want to answer any of those questions. Just interested. I could also be barking up the wrong tree with my supposition.
