I think we have to remember it doesn't matter how rich our owners are the FFP rules limit the amount PIF can spend. And if having the away strip in colours that look similar to the Saudi kit help generate cash for the club then I personally have no problem with it.  I would have bigger issue with the renaming of the stadium and maybe that is in the pipeline.  But if we want to start challenging higher up the table we are going to have to generate money to do it where we can.

They're malleable, and you know that's what I like really.

 

I don't like people who come on here: 'Ooh, we designed the Newcastle strip this way, we did it that way'.

 

I just want them to go, "design it this way. If you like." 

 

 

 


:lol:

So success is the absolute be all and end all? 

 

Think how you see the shirt depends on where you fall on that scale.

 

I'm personally happy to be run sensibly without all this extra baggage tbh. Others obviously feel different, I understand it but don't agree with it. :dontknow:

Well we don’t know what’s next. Would not be shocked if the home colours end up compromised.

They can’t do it.

They changed the rules after Cardiff’s owner did it, same with name changes when Hull’s owner tried to change their name.

Aye they’ve made a choice to base a shirt on their nation’s colours, don’t have to explain a thing.

No they don’t. Opinions, got to love them. The thing is they never make anything wrong or right. They’re just opinions. If folk choose to be upset about anything and they do have a choice whether to be upset or not and/or then get drawn into a drama about it. That’s their problem. Not the clubs or yours or mine.

 

as The Dude would say:

“Yeah, well that's just your opinion man”

 

and it’s OK!  roll on Monday :indi:

If they wanted to improve themselves, they could stop persecuting/beheading people.

 

Crazy I know.

 

Well they are backing our women's team, I doubt they even have a women's team in SA. They at least have the sense not to try to shove their medieval culture down our throats, maybe we should accept that it will take some time before we can shove ours down theirs.

Saudi women's team played their first match this year. Small step but shows how the country is changing. Personally I hope the change in Saudi Arabia happens over a long time, revolutions in that part of the world from Iran to the Arab Spring haven't exactly gone according to plan.

Holt is obviously an idiot and just sensationalising things for the sake of clicks (aka tabloid journalism in 2022) but there's definitely more than a germ of a point about what certain fans are happy to 'sacrifice' for the sake of (presumably) the idea that we'll be a good team backed by Saudi. To use his example, I did a poll on here a few months back and more than a handful of people said they wouldn't care if the stadium was painted green.

Probably a stupid question but; unless you buy our merch from Sports Direct, there’s absolutely no way Mike Ashley gets anything?

Been put off buying anything for years as I’d hate the thought of Ashley getting my money.

Farrington on point tonight regarding that cunt Holt.

 

 

As much as I'm conflicted on the whole Saudi ownership ownership aspect, any cunt who works for the Daily Mail can absolutely fuck off. Their previous includes supporting the black shirts in the UK and the Nazis, and supporting the current right-wing destruction of the UK. Fuck that.

Background talk he’s involved in castore which would explain the knock off Fred Perry look.

Fans aren't daft, they know that if the Saudis are pumping £billions of cash into a football club they are going to expect some recognition, that's just how it works, whether you are a football club, boxing promoter, or Prime Minister of GB. This is just the world we live in, it's not exclusive to Newcastle, so no point in apologising for it.
