Yeah, it could never be moved out of town, you’d have to find a site within walking distance at the very least.

 

Shouldve gone ahead with SJH plan from years ago ...

Yep. Should’ve forced it through despite some of the protests which were ill informed. The end result would’ve been more green belt land.

Absolutely this. I think the wrong decision was made once the plans were turned down, mind. The club should have put the ground expansion on the back-burner and ploughed all their resources into strengthening the team. I'm convinced we would have won trophies with that mindset, creating greater funds which could have then been spent on moving over the road to the site of the Brewery which was closed around this time.

So is anyone feeling better about the takeover now? I still have my reservations that it will be done by end of month but it will be done and that’s the main thing as far as I’m concerned.

 

Literally nothing has changed :lol:

This. Old quotes in the Chron, a rehashed article in the Sun, nothing new at all, and some bloke who may be a lawyer, but might be on the wind up giving thumbs up emojis to all and sundry. Who the fuck knows?!

It was reported briefly after the second statement from BZG came out that once papers have been submitted to the PL under takeover rules neither party can release statements to the press for 20 days while they are reviewed.

 

There wasn't more made of it because the press would be making it obvious that anything they publish for the next few weeks would be made up clickbait. Also explains why Midhat keeps sending people 🤫 emojis and not much text and sent a message with the monochrome acquisitions company name - to make it obvious that they haven't pulled out and still mean business.

The Brewery site (any of it) was never available to NUFC, it was instantly approved as the massive job creation site for "Newcastle Science Central", which is now about 75% built and is called "Newcastle Helix".

It was Leazes Park and ground to the north which was identified and it is a brilliant asset to the city and as such the correct decision was made.

Plus it would have been a canny hike from the City Centre pubs to the stadium... not getting any younger here  ???

Nothing wrong with SJP. Yeah it needs a bit of updating inside, and could do with new cladding on the outside. The Milburn stand tunnel could do with better lighting and levelling of the road. The TV screen should be take off the glass wall/wind breaker and put below it where the SD signs in. The old Newcastle United sign to be reinstated on the East stand. Possibly an extension to take it over 60k. Aside from that though it’s a great stadium, it just needs a little bit of TLC.

Honestly, absolutely not.

When Mike Ashley is involved in anything, I've learned to expect the unexpected.

Just regarding the ground, but if the money were there, I reckon the thing to do would be to wait and see how safe standing works out. If it's a big success, we could see Germany-style rules where the capacity can be up to double. Which means more folk can be closer to the pitch, giving you a real cauldron of noise.
