This looks like it's a threat to the PL - either approve the takeover, or we'll hoy what we know to the public:

 

 

 

 

This sounds promising, really hope he’s on the level. It does sound like he’s got something against the PL and it’s actually good news that it’s on hold. It really does seem this account is an extension of the legal team on our side. Basically doing the dirty work they can’t seem to get involved with. If so then it probably is something big and is being used as leverage against the PL. if it comes out though you can probably kiss goodbye for any cooperation from the PL and for them to double down on the takeover.

Must be some kind of honey trap sex scandal photos or similar.  Mossad have a history of getting people to fall into classic honey traps just ask ZIad Ahmad Itani. 

Hoffman and Keys go to the brothel together and are partners in tarmac.

It will be a massive bombshell if true.  1st there is the takeover issue, then there is anti competitive angle.   This would blow the whole setup of the PL apart, Ashley could be sueing on multiple points and issues if this is true!

Yeah it is pretty huge.

Shows that it was only the say so of the big 6 that was blocking our takeover.

That’s corruption, anti-competitiveness and restraint of trade right there.

Tricky Dicky and the PL are in a world of trouble if this is true and can be proven in law.

He blasted away, his fingers a-blaze

To be honest, if it's something the PL are desperate to keep from the public, then fuck them and release it anyway.

No way should we be providing shade for them cunts, let them burn.

If we assume that we are in a world where this is proven to be the case, are the 6 clubs liable to any form of penalty too ?

The fans of these clubs shouldn't be punished, they have already suffered already....

Doubt it.

I think we have to accept that clubs will try to lobby for their best interests but the authorities in the game should be impartial. It’s the PL at the greatest fault here if true.

The authorities are the “big” clubs. That’s the problem 🙂

I think if the messages have been have been acquired by nefarious means they would be inadmissible.

It's worth remembering that under English law "fruit of the poisonous tree" is not necessary inadmissible, especially if it is material to a fact in dispute.

Lobbying for or against something like this is part and parcel of the world we live in. If for example Spurs and Liverpool wrote to the Premier League to say that they need to look deeper into the deal because there are links to piracy and it is bad for the whole league if they let the takeover happen, it’s not necessarily the Big 6 stopping the deal from going through. It is just another member raising concerns which Masters and co would have to take seriously. We need something with more meat to help get the deal done

Not just this, but in general. Snarky, bitter and repeat yourself like a broken record. You don't add anything to the forum, at all. Just a troll. Sign of the times, unfortunately. :thup:

:thup:

One of the down side's to all the takeover talk is the amount of absolute whopper's the thread has attracted. People were falling over themselves to sign up, just to come into this thread to try and wind people up. Weird as fuck man.

People forget that the likes of Trump,, Johnson, Putin and Cummings have ushered in an era where nothing matters.  20 years ago you could show evidence of just a suggestion of conspiracy or misdoing and something would happen.  I don't feel that's going to happen even if there's evidence Masters knew about the ESL or if he rejected the takeover on the advice of the Big Six.  More likely to be

 

"Aaaa-HA, we've got you now."

"Uh-huh, so?" 

"Well, we've proven you're wrong'uns so the takeover can go through."

*silence*. 

"Hello?  I've said... we've got the emails, this proves.."

*silence*.

All comes down to media pressure really, if the journos make it a massive story then it will have consequences for them. 

If the journos shrug it off then it will all quietly go away.

Luckily for us we'd have Talkshite on the case.

Clickbait radio they may be but (a) they love talking about us, (b) they currently love talking about how bad the ESL would be, (c) despite his wummery Adrian Durham hosts one of their flagship shows and would go to town on this.

 

Sky would be a lost cause but it won't get shrugged off in all media forms

If that’s the case then we all need to do our part and share the fuck out of it on Twitter and other social media. There’s enough other disgruntled football supporters from other clubs who might pick up on it too.

If the Cummings Barnard Castle thing showed us anything, it's even if the media make it a massive story for weeks on end the only difference might be that you have to wait a bit longer for it to quietly go away.

Cummings was made to resign and Trump lost his presidency.. aye nowt happens..  You literally only mentioned one guy who can just ignore everything with no consequences, Putin.  Doesn't matter though because the people you mention are far from the cause of any lack of accountability today.  That cause would be the press and too many people who just don't bother taking the time to research what they read and see.  Which is why the Democrats can get away with there "weekend at bidens" routine right now.

In the interests of our long term global plan DEEP STATE has killed this information.

Sorry, people, move along.  Nothing to see here.

 

Is it cos Fat Mike is an enema of the state?

It's interesting that the poll on the other thread suggests slightly over 60% of fans on here believe the takeover won't go through, but when it's discussed in posts on here it's as if those people are actually an over-vocal minority when in fact the exact opposite is true.

Maybe the reason he ‘isn’t allowed to publish it’ is that it’s all conjecture and guess work alluding to vague crimes that aren’t actually crimes

Fairly convinced now that Keith is full of shit, and even if he isn’t, if he had a picture of Masters and Hoffman hanging out of either end of a cow it wouldn’t move the dial in terms of getting a takeover through. 

I await good news from any angle, fucking sick of this circus
