    Im struggling with 2011

    Found this though
    The rebranding of St James’ Park is another slap for Newcastle fans

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/nov/10/st-james-park-newcastle-united-mike-ashley

    It was all going so well. Perhaps too well, with hindsight. The announcement that Newcastle United’s ground, St James’ Park, is to be renamed the Sports Direct Arena has shattered the fragile truce between the football club’s supporters and its owner, Mike Ashley.

    People clinging to a bunch of wishful thinking
    Forgetting the turd relies on such notions to hold onto our club

    The reality if things is quite different

    You can see that the reality we are in is quite different to views posted here

    From previous, our potential midfield options are pretty frightening. I would imagine anyone who’s only 50-50 Is going to be chanced. The big problem being, realistically our only chance is to our work them and that’s going to be incredibly difficult when everyone can’t give 100%.

    I am holding out hope that despite it having been pretty much guaranteed for so long that their players might take a bit of a hit from having lost the title. That and the fact Agüero will miss out as he always plays well against us.

    Harrogate’s been on a few times. Seems nobody has sussed him out still despite bold early claims from some. How will it unfold? Who can tell? One thing is for certain, it won’t involve a long overdue an apology!

    If that’s what he’s putting out on the pitch tomorrow then he’s now concentrating on league places not trophies.

    An honest question. But how is Ashleigh pretending to sell the club this time? Previously, I don’t deny it. But this time around, all the paper work has been handed over to the PL and is currently overseeing fit and proper ownership tests. My understanding is that it is now finally out of Ashleigh’s hands, and he couldn’t back out now even if he wanted to. As far as I know, it’s 100% in the hands of the PL and both the selling and buying party are awaiting an answer. To me, this is much bigger than football. The delay, as we understand, is due to a political tug of war. The UK has been selling arms to SA and the former is keen to maintain good relations with them. So the government is reluctant to get involved even though the PL is possibly looking for a way to save face, but also extort PIF as much as it can.

    So please, very plainly explain how this takeover is fake. More to the point, tell me the following (and I’ll make it easy for you):
    1. what brilliant scheme MA is hatching
    2. How he is planning on executing it without ramifications from the PL, the PIF, along with Stavely who is well known for kicking legal ass

    Not sure how many of our midfielders are available tomorrow but if Hayden is out then i fear for us. He is the only one with a bit of bite in midfield and has been ur most reliable CM this season, very under rated for me. Bentaleb can`t tie his boot laces.

    He’s one of my favourite players in our team. I can’t praise him enough, I think he suffered earlier in the season as he was being asked to run the attack through midfield which just isn’t his game. Whenever he features as an out and out defensive minded midfielder he’s always a stand out for me.

    He’s the closest we’ve come to replacing the early years Tiote as far as I’m concerned.

    JohnReese,

    Totally agree there m8, and the trouble is now, if he is,nt fit, i think we could get steamrollered. City won`t be showing any mercy , they will want that cup .
    Stranger things have happened mind, but we need Hayden in there to have half a chance.

    He treats us exactly the same way he runs his tat shops

    In answer to your question
    Show me any proof any of what youve claimed is true
    Youve got a bunch of stories and no comments from anyone , as per usual

    Myself i have 10 years of sales without sucsess, you saying its just that hard to sell a football club ?
    Anyone know how many football clubs have been sold in the last 10 years off the top of your head ?

    WLToon,

    I am worried about the game. Got to keep it level in the first half and frustrate them. If they get a goal in the first 15 I think that’ll be it. I know we’ve come back from it before but I don’t think we’d have it in us right now.

    Hayden is one of the reasons I’d like to see us play a 4-3-3. With him at the base of a 3 he gives you the protection you need in front of a back 4 but also because he’s got experience playing at CB he gives you the option to drop into a 5 at the back as and when the game calls for it.

    But what if he actually means it this time? Would it help if he made a pinky promise or told us he was really sorry and he won’t do it again?

    Best give him the benefit of the doubt hey?

    And don’t forget to renew those season tickets.

    You: OK so he is wanting to sell your saying
    My answer: Irrelevant. The papers are in the hands of the PL
    You: All of those times for all of those years ?
    My answer: Irrelevant. I’ve already stated that I don’t deny the previous ones being sabotaged by him. It’s possible, but I am referring to this takeover attempt since it’s based on your claim that the current one is fake
    You: Remember when he decided to get drunk and hoy up instead of selling us tho the Mansours ?
    My answer: Yes, but irrelevant
    You: You arnt even a tad suspicious after all of those sales for all of those years without a successful buyer ?
    My answer: Finally, a real question although you’ve yet to answer any of mine. Yes, I’m suspicious, I’m skeptical and I’m hopeful.

    Now I’ll thank you to answer my questions too. They’re only two questions which I’ve kindly numbered for you

    Why ?
    Hes had plenty of time to make some statement hasnt he
    Were supposed to ignore the fact hes been selling us for 10 years
    Ignore hes been proven to be a liar in court

    To somehow believe him this time ?
    Id guess the buyers are probably real, if he wanted to sell it would have happened
    If it was being held up he would have released the NDA to let the buyer put pressure on the prem

    What did we get ?
    The usual BS 2nd bidder

    Sadly

    YOU: Show me any proof any of what youve claimed is true
    MY ANSWER: Shifting the burden of proof. You’ve made the claims. Not me. The onus to provide evidence is yours
    YOU: Youve got a bunch of stories and no comments from anyone , as per usual
    MY ANSWER: I’ve been very transparent and stated what my understanding is.
    YOU: Myself i have 10 years of sales without sucsess, you saying its just that hard to sell a football club ?
    MY ANSWER: Irrelevant. I’m questioning your claim that THIS take over is fake
    YOU: Anyone know how many football clubs have been sold in the last 10 years off the top of your head ?
    MY ANSWER: Irrelevant. Again, I’m questioning your claim that THIS take over is fake
