    I never understood where the idea came from that they were involved to begin with. Some journalist somewhere said their “sources” told them so, and before you know it, it’s widely recognised as fact.

    Sports Direct may be paying less than minimum wage, investigation shows

    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jul/23/sports-direct-undercover-minimum-wage-mike-ashley

    You think theyll investigate this first or his making his furloughed staff work ?

    Seems like hes been a naughty boy

    anyway what i was trying to say is that Khashoggi’s fiancee, politicians and the world and it’s wife got involved because they heard about the takeover through the media not because they had inside knowledge. how does drugs comes into it!?

    Do you have connections to America like JIB ?

    Yeah, I get the idea that everyone, and I do mean everyone, is simply following a spurious narrative emanating from a lie hatched by Mike Ashley, so he can continue to hold onto a club whose fan base utterly despises him and takes every opportunity to show it.

    Just wondering why the Ruebens are also on board with it.

    Good post bearing mind that the last time the Reubens were mentioned a couple of years ago they quickly came out and denied it
    No such denial this time despite it being even more high profile

    Ashley complaining that he’s struggling due to business rates.

    Yet another night goes by and nearly all of the comments on the last few posts are from or directed to the non meat eating WUM

    I do wonder sometimes

    Internet trolls thrive on attention, whether positive or negative. Its all they crave, for what reason I’m nor entirely sure.

    No football to talk about. It’s going to be along summer

    Disaster looming for Newcastle United as impact of Mike Ashley wilful neglect comes to surface

    https://www.themag.co.uk/2020/07/disaster-looming-for-newcastle-united-as-impact-of-mike-ashley-wilful-neglect-comes-to-surface/

    Sadly, it now looks as though we could be heading into a perfect storm, where the refusal of Mike Ashley to put down foundations and plan ahead, is set to really catch up with us. With seemingly no imminent approval on the takeover expected, NUFC are set to be really badly impacted by the failure to allow proper structured investment in the first team squad, no revamp of the academy or facilities, then no attempt to keep promising young players who have come through.

    Newcastle United have a rapidly ageing squad, a squad with many players having little time remaining on their contracts, then we have Steve Bruce who appears to have zero interest in giving any young players a chance in this run of meaningless matches of the current season.

    So somebody just plucked the idea out of thin air, they didn’t deny it, and so now it’s just accepted as fact?

    It just seems after all of these years
    And all of his stories
    It seems he has some kind of connection to the USA
    I dont recall him mentioning it even once

    Even to the posters from over there, you dont find that odd in any way ?
    He seems to have had a story about everything else

    It is accepted as true essentially, and not disputed by the Ruebens for some reason. Yes exactly.

    They can’t seem to do without him, they actually encourage the guy to post so that they can whine about him. It’s very unusual behaviour???

    Nicky

    Or from sports journalists who had nothing better to do, or maybe it was genuine but it’s already been failed, maybe the mauriss bid is real, or the ohantom third bidder, or maybe Ant and Dec are teaming up with Jimmy Nail and trying to buy us. Who knows? There’s no proof for any of it. Just a lot of speculation.

    Let’s go one step further. Your position is ridiculous, that can only hope to persuade a handful off the least thinking among us, yet you present as a smart, disciplined and polite person.

    Why are you going to such trouble?

    the takeover has gained a life of it’s own. it all started from the loan charge document published at Companies House. everything else has been built on that.

    was the loan charge document a deliberate attempt to mislead and set the ball rolling?

    Is it really that ridiculous?

    How do you explain the “deposit” being a vendor loan being paid BY Ashley TO Staveley? How is that being a deposit not “ridiculous” to begin with?

    What about the Saudis banning PL broadcasts when they’re supposed to be buying a PL club?

    Or the notion that the Saudis would need the Reubens in the first place? How did that come about of all things?

    That’s before we even start on the 16 week O+D test.

    From my point of view, everything about this is ridiculous from any point of view.

    It’s really not impossible at all. That or an agreement with Staveley where Ashley funds here legal case with Barclays and in return she pays him above the odds for a share of NUFC if she wins her case.

    It certainly seemed to be much more closely related to the court case than a takeover.
