If it is true I hope you get bought by someone with ambition to win trophies and not just earn money off the back of you, like the owners of Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs.
You lads need a lift and I can tell you for a fact, getting taking over by the right owner is one of the biggest f***ing buzzes in football.
Good luck.

If it is true, I just hope we get a better owner who cares.

I hate Ashley with an absolute passion, but look at some of the owners around!! Not much better.

Say what you will about Chelsea, but Ambramovich is always at the games and is a fan.

It may well be not a popular opinion with the masses, but Id rather have a guy who can put ?50-75m a year in (Chelsea) and care, rather than ?300m a year and not give a toss about the club (Man City).

There are only 2 owners prepared to throw money at clubs with disregard for profit. Nee chance we'll get one of them. Ashley is ambitiously awful and a gambler, but cautious. Look down the road potentially 10 years in the doldrums coming up as the owner threw money and then the towel in as it didn't work.

Theres caution (which is great), and then theres being a tight fisted, money grabbin w***ker.

Hes the latter.

Every single team in this league has broken their club record transfer fee since 2015. 

When did we break ours? When we signed Owen.  05 was it?? Before Cashley was even here

Post by: R S on October 02, 2017, 07:28:23 PM
The take-over has been planned to coincide with sunderland going into receivership and disappearing up its own arse. The multi-billionaire Dubai consortium have plans to extend the stadium to 75,000 to use the take-up of sunderland and Scottish fans who have abandoned their clubs and want to watch consistently good premiership and European football.

Can we embrace these new fans?  I think the atmosphere of 75,000 screaming jawdees and adopted jawdees (flawdees) will be immense.

Happy days are just around the corner.

wouldn't put it past Ashley to pay her to show up at a game, fuel speculation to take some heat off him and give him a January transfer window - get out of jail free card.
even then he may ditch them for a drinking expedition again
and this 'non-disclosure' business is probably just stopping people he's had initial discussions with revealing he got p**sed and threw up in the fire-place

made my day to hear the speculation on motd2 last night, then had a nightmare (true story) wherein a press release on the radio said 'no take-over is imminent'
i think after 10years he's f**ked my mind up

There won't be anything in it. I think she was just there to take in a game. Shame like, if she had been scoping us out on behalf of potential investors, then the atmosphere in that game would have convinced her.

Speculation that talks have been held since Sunday's game. I think we have the best club within the EPL out of the clubs whom arnt already top teams. Any potential investors should be buzzing right now. Back in the prem with Rafa at the helm. TV money each season 52k ticket sales. Nufc could be massive

It would just be more of the same. Little investment and just taking.
If it's Arabs, THEN I'd get excited. Not Americans, not far east and certainly NOT British millionaires
Arabs throw money at it to get it right. Russkis do too
The rest have proved to be disasters
Its no coincidence tht BY FAR the best academy's are Chelsea's then a fair way back, Man City - another way back Man U (nowhere near as productive as they were) and then a LOOOOONG way behind are the rest
With Newcastle among the furthest back (Beaten by Port Vale FFS..... another example of great players rarely make good coaches with Beardsley)
Title: Re: Club Take-Over 2018
Post by: Jonas14 on October 05, 2017, 02:01:39 AM
Well when you see the lack of investment in our first team, you've got to imagine the dregs beneath it.
and almost anybody would be an improvement as an owner - similar investment without the malevolence and stupidity, more investment with stupidity, more investment and common sense.

aye if nothing else it was fun to see mackems with Short Out' avatars talking about how we'd lose our souls and credibility if a takeover happened.

just hope that one of the few people in the world who has the wherewithal to meet the asking price of the owner, who apparently wants to sell, sitting a few seats away from our people wasn't totally squandered.
at least give me that.

She was also at the Stoke game at home ,as well as the Liverpool game. A friend of Rafa , and with the club on the open market, and her having control of billions plus contact with the worlds rich and famous.This.. thank god, could be the beginning of the end of Ashleys ownership.

So Ashley has made 60 million selling off the land behind the Galllowgate surely that brings any selling price down to 320 million - fat clown had better sell or I swear I'll kill the fat greedy southern bar steward.

He can then take over some other unfortunate club and stick his obscene advertising any fukin where he fancies - Crystal Palace I HOPE

Ah but surely you know that doesn't count. Neither do all the millions he's squired through things like massive increase in operating costs' and millions spent on training ground shrubbery.

I would love for Nufc to gain an owner like Chelsea and Man City. We already have the huge fan base and sell out crowds home and away. I'd like to see us return as Entertainers and have players on par with the best. There are so many big clubs already out there with big name players but this Stadium would be bouncing with a proper number 9. If she were here at the club to look into us etc Its a bargain compared to Liverpool.

To be honest NO.
A bunch of Arabs swimming in money is one thing, an Eastern potentate who has f***** up so many clubs - Christ. No.
Devil you know v Devil you don't
If Ashley had've sold to the Arabs that went on to Man City.......
Sunderland had something similar in 70s. Their cowardly board said NO to Clough in mid 70s.
He then went to Notts Forest instead, and took the players there who he said he'd take to Sunderland. They won the league, and the European Cup after quite a short wait
Can you imagine Sunderland having won the league 2-3 times and the European Cup twice ?
With their fan base being double Notts Forests the fall off wouldn't have happened so quickly
Ditto with the Man City arabs influence here

Its strange because it didn't really need to be said
stranger still that's its come too early to be a transfer-window-lack-of-funds-excuse (tm MA)

worrying about whether a sale will happen and about who its sold to if so can wait, like Peachy, its just a nicer feeling than normal this false hope so I'm going to wollow in it a bit.
I think were forgetting that Benitez is the difference between where we are now and how we feel about the team compared to Carver/Pardew/McLaren and the toxic staleness of a husk of a club we were and would probably be without him, when it comes to appraisal of the current owner.

Chances are it'll be a chinese investor, they've got quite the influence up here with various businesses, chinatown and of course the new sponsor.

The majority of Supporters have wanted this to happen for a couple of years now. And we should be buzzing. But yet again We're biting our finger nails and awaiting news we've wished for, for a long time. This will be yet another media joke at Nufc. MA will ask for to much. And we will be left with. I new owners no players in January and a club statement come xmas saying nobody was worthy in Ashley's opinion.

Whom ever takes over the club, Will get a standing ovation. Unlike MA. I also firmly believe Liverpool United, City, Liverpool Spurs and Chelsea have pretty much optimised there clubs brand. But Newcastle United in my view is special. No other club like it within the NE.

If it was my club I wouldn't want a US investor. They've shown time and again that they view the Prem as a cash cow and nothing more. 
Preferably you want a football daft multi-billionaire who is determined to make a good go of it. I think they might be a bit thin on the ground though.
I do genuinely wish you luck, I'd love another club to piss on the chips of the old top 4. The only real difference between Newcastle, Chelsea and City are the latter got taken over by decent owners prepared to spend.

Apparently Staveley interested but only will offer her valuation which is just over 300 million, saying the squad needs 150m investment over the next two years. 150m over 4 transfer windows is less than 40m per window. I think we need more then that over that stretch like.

Newbiggin Hall

Could you please tell me what happened to Newbiggin Hall, Nevendon, Blanchland? As as child I remember going to stay there when it was a hotel. Your photograph of Newbiggin Hall under the heading of "Places" brought back many memories. Gill Drysdale, July 26 2009
Newbiggin Hall is still there, as beautiful as ever. It is now owned by a member of the Arabian royal family who comes to stay a couple of times a year for the grouse shooting. He flies in via helicopter! I think it has had a chequered history; people have told me it was a First World War sanatorium, and it even had a spell as a turkey farm.

This is the info on the Arabs at Blanchland ,,lifted from a page with history of the area..just wonder if any of these chaps who have a local interest are amongst potential bidders??

If this doesn't go through, Rafa will be off and the team will be relegated. It's not an exaggeration to think we could be 2nd tier fodder within 12 months, at which point Mike won't be able to give the club away. This might be his only chance to sell the club before the pastry products take him, and I'm not confident that he and his advisors will be intelligent or humble enough to realise this.

I bet Mike Ashley's business etiquette is f***ing appalling.

300 Million. Good first bid. All I can say is that I would be 100% happier watching a game live on SkySports without them constantly berating Newcastle because of Mike Ashley's flaws when it comes to owning and running a football Club. Under Pardew I was sourly content when we finished in a Europa spot. When we had Cabaye Ben Arfa Cisse and Ba all the club needed was a new manager and a few additions. Instead he let the dressing room and the fans and the media disbelieve Nufc had ambition. The Supporters want Trophys and attacking exciting football. Stick Lacelles in at CB with Mitro up top with some class players. Young talent. We don't need s*** LOADS. All we need is investment ambition and the financial means. Already have the Support a stadium and Rafa. 😜 Thing is lol soon we will be awash with comments like we need loads of players money blah blah. Nah we wanted Ashley out. And Hamsik in for Perez. Pretty sure it was that..

Think it's likely the prospective buyers leaked the info, we're at risk of relegation because of Ashley and potential non-investment in january, and if that happens the club will be worth far less. Not to mention the ongoing tax case that looks poor practice.

As mentioned on the mag, he should have put it up for sale in the summer

Sooner this is dealt with the better and if it is just a ruse to avoid further investment on his behalf that still wouldn't surprise me either

As much as he is playing a game of brinksmanship, surely he knows that this is the premium time to sell.With the club in the Premier League with the current and future revenue in jeopardy if he pulls out of this deal. The clubs stock is high at the moment , and with a decent manager in charge new ownership would be a breath of fresh air, losing this deal surely is no good to any of the parties involved,especially Ashley..who would be in an untenable position .

Ashley accepts his failures and stops trying to overcompensate for his lack of appeal to women. He accepts the current offer, leaves, cuts his losses, and opens up a chain of mildly acceptable roadside taverns that focus on healthy eating for the over 60s.

People need to accept that the majority of this squad will take us to the summer. it will take at least three windows just to completely overhaul this garbage squad. Rafa has to take some blame, committed too heavily in building a championship level squad.

this club cant take much more of that man, and i know i cant.

Hopefully this papertalk will get resolved sooner , rather than later.The current predicament surely puts to an end the crap talked by certain pundits,,,mainly Southern based and mainly on Sky, with the opinion that Ashley saved Newcastle , and that without him the club would have been in freefall. In reality he has invested virtually zero[ he did claim he would invest 30m per season]..the club he took over flirted regularly with European soccer and some of the best teams in Europe were visitors in top flight games. He has had the club relegated twice , and if he leaves, the clubs will be in the relegation zone once again on his departure. He has fleeced free advertising from the club , and controlled the merchandise sales, plus sold land adjacent to the Gallowgate for 60m...in short he has sucked the club dry ,and would rather spend a million on the turn of a card in a casino than invest in NUFC..Please go you fat ugly b@st@rd.

He's just soooo desperate to sell of course.

if the owner wasn't such a w**ker it would have been settled by now.
he's bloody lucky pcp are still interested, given how relegation is more likely than not.
were down if January is under Ashley and that should be a deal-breaker.
everyone wins if it gets done now, everyone loses if not - unfortunately its Ashley doing the deciding.

PCP will have more clarity on the business valuation, whether we are still a PL club or not.
I can't see PCP investing in January in a business they don't own with no guarantee that these investments will guarantee PL survival.

If anything, it should have made them raise their game, to secure their futures going forward under Rafa. Downing tools, just accelerates their own exit.

to be honest, we were crap even before the announcement, bailed out by an easier section of the fixture list. We only beat Stoke (who are having a mare this season), Swansea (who are bottom), and Palace (who at that point in time, were bottom and looked doomed).

Agree. We need to forget it and move on.

Fans need to get 100% behind the team. Yes, we lack a lot of quality, but this is a team that will give 100% honest effort and fight to the end. Booing the team at HT and FT against Brighton is not going to help them.

Even if the takeover happens, unless they are going to invest ?100m net a season for two seasons, then it ain't going to transform anything. ?30m gets us a striker that cannot get a start for Leicester or even in their squad most games. There are 12 teams battling to avoid the drop into oblivion. 7 have already changed their manager. All of these teams want goal scorers and have as much money to spend as we do. Most have been in the PL for at least two or three seasons and have a depth of squad that we do not. 52k every game means little when Bournemouth can blow ?20m on a full back and pay a 34 year old Defoe ?20m over 3 years.

We are in a battle to stay in the division. The cavalry are not coming. We can whinge, shout and boo but it will change nothing. If we whinge enough then Ashley may bring in another muppet manager to see if we get a dead cat bounce in results with our championship squad. Or we can stay united, with the flags and the atmosphere and get behind a manager and team who at least do give a s***.

I did a bit of digging on this yesterday through companies house.

?Farquhar? is actually the middle name of Craig Eadie. He is also a senior figure at PCP and owner/director of Penhallow. He registered the company for Amanda Stavely, he is also a director of the Stavely Foundation.
Could be something or nothing but I have my fingers crossed.
It costs about a hundred quid to register a company iirc and is very simple; I wouldn?t read too much into people saying she wouldn?t waste her time.

i know
he's such a w**ker that it defies logic and there's almost no point applying logic to it. Like a good Terry F**kwit.

its his last ever chance to sell for anywhere near what he wants, its only downhill from now for us and him if he stays - yet he's risking messing up the takeover, losing the manager and thousands of fans (myself included) as a result, premier league status and at least ?150-200million personally.

time for another open letter pointing all this out to him. (and as way of a bonus the ignorant and purposefully ignorant media and fans of other clubs who don't get it, still)

should we not get some open letter or something going, with thousands putting their names to it,along the lines of 'if you stay, we go' - just he seemed to respond to the other open letter.

its just i cant be sure he understands that we all (him included) will lose out if this falls through.

I have no idea where this consortiums money comes from and if someone will come looking for them later down the line like taksin, carsten young, kingpower, etc etc.

Price doesnt sound unreasonable to me. Fat mike paid 130m cash, took on 100m of debt and then realised he had to pay another 40m so 270m. Hes asking 300m all these years down the line with a massively improved tv deal. Yes ashley  overpaid but he wants his cash back in full. Everyone knows that and everyone knows that haggling with him is a mugs game. These guys didnt have the cash and if we are relegated do they have the funds to underwrite the club while we try and get back up. It suggests they dont and then we are totally f***ed.

Of course they had the cash and offered what the club is worth in its current position. The fat man however is just a greedy clown whos over valued it.

supposedly worth ?29 billion but nickel and diming it over and wanting cashback if relegated. Its bollocks.

just because mike is full of s*** doesnt mean these guys arent too

he just doesn't want to sell and never did - he wanted more than it was worth, but not to sell.
If the club wasn't really, really good for him he would have sold it years ago. Don't let anybody tell you this guy is selflessly helping us.
and we'd be the only club in the premier league (and beyond) that hasn't attracted foreign investment, i wonder why?

That's me done then with Newcastle United. Investment, interest, support.
there's no point with him here, the clubs target is to fail, they're not trying and i cannot bring myself to give a f**k about who plays and who doesn't, who we buy or sell, who the manager is - it just makes no difference - the club isn't, hasn't and wont ever try- and I can't kid myself that it does. Not letting that utter c**t Ashley have any more effect on my life.
Rafa offered hope, then when Ashley went back to normal the takeover, and now there is none.

you've got no idea who is in this consortium, how much they have,where their money came from and if that money is even legal (see taksin, carsten young, gaydamak etc etc)  and neither do I and they made f-all effort to go on a PR drive and introduce themselves to the city and explain themselves. Didnt sound like people who wanted to be known. You'd end up with a puppet board reporting back to unknown figures on the other side of the world and before you know it you've been completely mugged.

The rumor from the club is the fat clown wanted 300 million no less, no relegation clause and next seasons prem money if the club stayed up.

Deffy dont be silly man. He has no right to the TV money. That money in fairness should go on players rafa wants transfers wages snd all that s***. It is a joke as ive only enjoyed like one season thus decade. No Demba Ba or Cisse. No Cabaye etc etc wont see us playing Benfica again anytime soon. I said Rafa would be gone by xmas. Respect to him if he stays. Staying up will be difficult. But i dont see Nufc being a struggling team in the Championship. Were simply to good.

I understand that business is business but why does everything take so long with the fat clown. We all knew before Christmas this wasn't going to happen.

By doing this he dosnt have to spend on transfers. With over half the window gone he can use the excuse there wasnt enough time to get deals done. Of course he'll lay the blame on the other parties in the takeover.

Can it be trusted to have a few boisterous renditions of "Get out of our club" for the remainder of the season at every game?

I'm honestly surprised to have not heard it yet...

Did he invent all this, pay Staveley for a few public showings and then turn round and say 'well I tried to sell, I don't have any money left to give you, you're gonna have to manage with what you've made/got?

Wouldn't put it past him. Also keeps the money rolling in and the free advertisement for his netto sportswear.

I don't reckon that's true. My understanding was that Rafa contacted Staveley and mentioned that Newcastle was a similar prospect to Liverpool (whom she failed to buy previously).

This is why she was there as a guest with the Chairwoman of the Hillsborough committee - they were both invited by him that day.

Story breaking that the Reubens family ,who had earmarked funds for Staveley in November, pulled the plug after hearing Ashleys stance back then. Possibly Ashley got wind of this and now looks upon Staveley as a bit of a chancer. As yet no word regarding Arabs financing the deal , with Staveley putting a large chunk of her own cash into the deal..not sure how much fact is involved in these stories, but it may shed light on why Ashley has been so dismissive of Staveley.
