    Ghost did he get back to sleep in his cage thing? Mine woke again at 7, which is grand, but I left him there as he was chewing a toy. I hear he has just widdled downstairs though and wife ain’t happy! 🙂

    To be fair to Steve Wraith, he was pictured sat next to Amanda Staveley’s husband (on the opposite side from Staveley herself) when they visited SJP three years ago.

    If he didn’t have anything to do with taking them to SJP then you have to say it’s a little coincidental! In fact, if he hadn’t been there, would the journo have even noticed her? It’s not like she was a household name back then.

    Yes, he can be a bit of a tool at times, yes he has an ego the size of Riyadh, but he wears his heart on his sleeve and nobody can deny his passion for NUFC.

    It could only happen at Newcastle. The biggest thing in football and we aren’t allowed to go and celebrate it outside the ground. It’s just not fair

    Its kind of why I want Leeds promoted and QSI to take them over.

    Imagine QSI and PIF going head to head in the transfer window. With also Citeh trying to flex their financial power lol.

    The Saudis dont ever do anything in halves they would want only the best of everything.

    Now that everyone and their dog has protested against us, will it go away or get worse? And do we care?

    Understand the
    @NUFC
    takeover has been delayed as Premier League concentrate on ‘operation restart’ but good chance things will be resolved next week.

    Yeah he settled in his crate eventually.

    I think another week or so he’ll be more use to it. Im trying to get him to use it during the day as well so he gets use to it and sees it as his safe haven and not a punishment.

    Just hope the neighbours can cope a little bit longer lol

    I know it’s a Medivac plane, but it’s a HUGE coincidence that a Saudi plane has arrived at Newcastle today. HUGE!

    Yesterday it was flew very early in the morning, shortly after the news broke on the Saudi news channel, from Riyadh to Jeddah, an upmarket coastal city very close to Mecca with a Royal Palace at its heart.

    It hung around for half an hour, before flying back to Riyadh, then on to Stansted about half an hour later.

    Very unusual to use a Medivac plane this way, I’m sure – if it was an urgent medical case and someone had to get from Jeddah to London, why fly back to Riyadh two hours after leaving?

    Cheers for the heads up Cap!

    Prince’s nashers, it’s never bothered me, they’ve always laughed and thought we were deluded anyway, so bring it on. He who laughs last laughs loudest. You’ll hear the roar around the world when it’s announced. 🙂

    We don’t care! I think 13 years of Ashley entitles is to a bit of self congratulation and gloating!
    The patronising gits who said Ashley was doing a good job can laugh on the other side of their face!

    Yeah the current owner is best buddies with QSI and they have been sniffing around for a while.

    If they dont get taken over straight away I can see QSI investing in them temporarily then buying them out further down the line.

    However if the league cancel all of the remaining championship games and Leeds are not promoted then its not looking very good. Also I think Bielsa will then leave and a lot of their best players.

    So alot is dependent on them getting promoted.

    A journalist from the sun saying it’s been delayed because of project restart or in his words operation restart. Should be sorted by next week he says.

    Blah blah blah total click bait and says it all he works for the sun

    I can’t wait to hear the ripple of ring pulls being popped when George Caulkin tweets and the Geordie Nation goes mental.

    It’ll be a cancophony!

    This is going to be a canny earner for Stavely – she’ll walk away with around 30 million once deal is completed
