Settlement in the arbitration case would probably involve passing the deal. What else would NUFC be willing to settle for?

Costs, lost of earnings etc.  It's MA, if he smells money he'll be all over it

Even the biggest sceptic must realise Newcastle have been unfairly treated, the refusal of the takeover is just not fair

Ashley is absolutely pulling every trick/tactic/test possible against the PL. 

If anyone seriously believes that PIF are not interested in buying the club then that's genuinely mental. 

The PL are legally getting pushed further and further into a corner in order to get this deal passed.

Is the panel stacked against us? (Not having a dig, just not up to date.)

That is the general consensus, also the club & NDM went to court to remove one of the panel members.

Are we absolutely certain the disclosure stage will unearth documentation that will prove collusion and corruption? Do we know for a fact that that has actually happened? Or is it just an assumption given the fact the takeover was never rubber stamped for reason unbeknown to any of us?

It would be great if there are written communications between the PL and the ‘Big 6’ / BeIN that show inappropriate behaviours

Yes, it’s a fact the big ordered the takeover to not be passed. I don’t think anyone doubts that after the ESL stuff. As for evidence, no one knows what we’ve got or what we’ll get.

Is it fact? Or are taking what Amanda told The Athletic as the only real information

Last few paragraphs confirm that the sale is gone. 

They don’t mind. It’s part of his claim. He’s claiming for loss of sale or potential loss of sale and profit. 
 

Doesn’t mean PIF aren’t still in if the restrictions are lifted by the PL.

Amanda + ESL + gov on standby + Keith reckons we’ve got loads of proof. 

It’s what I call an OJ did it fact.

You read about it a lot in Mike Ashley’s business deals. He’s parking his tanks on the premier leagues lawn. 
 

Remember his spat with Dave Whelan that he won as well over the pricing of football shirts years ago with the alleged quote “There’s a club in the North son, and you’re not part of it”. 
 

He wouldn’t be going this far if he didn’t think he could win.

I guess we'll find out - I have a feeling there will be.  If the ESL has taught us anything it is how arrogant these big clubs can be.

Also the big project nonsense if it went through gave those 6 clubs the right to veto any future takeovers of fellow clubs, plus no relegation for 20 years just for them.

It's not exactly a large leap to believe it.

Well, look what I wake up to...

Even if this thing won't bring takeover any close for NUFC. I hope this thing bring PL and the so called "big 6" down.

Like B-More said earlier, Keith really, really needs to shut the fuck up about what’s happening. You don’t publicly tweet your entire strategy ffs. In a long string of bad looks by Keith, this one is one of the worst.

The bloke's ridiculous.  Just enjoying his time in the limelight I suppose, he knows there are plenty of sponges soaking up his every word...so why not milk it to feed his ego.

Read the case: dunno looks not good, he just wants compo 

Read the takes: maybe it is positive 

Read the article: great it seems coordinated somewhat, positive finally 

Read Keith: this is doomed again

It's understandable but 14 years of Ashley has turned the majority of fans pessimistic, we just can't take good news without thinking there will be some bad to follow.

Unbelievable give your head a shake. There’s a few on here who really deserve another 16 years of Ashley, absolutely fucking clueless.

You do realise he’s actually won anti competition cases in the past, do you actually think he’s putting anything out that would put this in jeopardy ? The strategy is hardly rocket science I’m quite sure the PL know what is going on FFS [emoji38]
