Well I’m going 30% it’s happening, 20% it’s not and 50% it drags on until the end of time.

 

So a 70% chance the takeovers on?

The Premier League and the likes of UEFA are ravaged by corruption, hopefully the legal system will serve justice.

Knowing that the verdict will probably be a thanks to the 'Big 6' for highlighting the dodgy people who want to get into our League, and as a reward we'll drop your punishment for trying to set up ESL

10% happening 90% wont happen. I just dont believe the corrupt legal system in the country...

 

Even if NUFC has the best lawyers and the evidences against the PL are strong; the corrupt judges, base on nepotism only, will always favour English establishment (PL) over dirty morally bankrupt barbaric backwater foreign Arabs (PIF).

It seems beautifully ironic that the PL are still waiting on a final decision on their request for a competition exclusion order so they can extend the current UK TV rights after they were given a 'no red flags' preliminary response over a month ago.

 

How apt it would be if the government, following concerns raised in the consultation, were to require that the PL resolve the current CAT case against them before they will grant the exclusion order.

If the govt as we suspect strongly want this investment, what better opportunity to use the tv deal as leverage.

Yeah, it would make sense for them to do it that way too, the government probably couldn't be seen to be raising the issue of their alleged anti-competitive actions around our takeover off their own bat, but I know for a fact that it has been raised in the exclusion order consultation.

What an absolute clusterfuck this place has turned into.

 

That is 2 days in a row now that 2  advocates of this positive thread @manorpark @Whitley mag, immigrated to the other thread, squibbled with those on there and got that thread locked. Ffs. Absolutely insane. 

 

1 and a half year into this saga and people still can't behave themselves. Mods, its about time you guys come to a decision. Either we have only one thread on takeovers or let both be opened or locked. You can't keep locking one and not the other. Its freaking useless if the positive blokes infiltrate the realist thread and call people cunts and twats and thread gets locked or even vice versa if people come in this thread and start calling others names.

 

Embarassing as fuck. Rtg levels.

Yeah I don't want to fan the flames, but it's a lot harder to discuss any particular outcomes or theories in this particular thread as it's called the positive thread, and unfortunately they're not always positive reports.

 

I understand how this one came about, but do feel we need to just merge the threads and moderate it as best as the mods can.

Should definitely keep two takeover threads, but one should only be for the daily copy/paste arguments between Manorpark, gdm and a few others. 


don’t include me in it today. I admit i got too carried away yesterday and will walk away from discussions like that from now on and I deliberately stayed away from here after the other one was locked. 

 

All I did today was say it out of order to call someone a cunt for no reason then got called a twat for it.

Knew you couldn't resist - get over to the other board before the mods ban you for a week!

Away you go trying to start an argument. It’s not needed. There’s too much of that on here. I’m only here defending myself after someone mentioned me while the other one is locked.

Can I make a suggestion to the mods?

 

2 Threads 

 

1. Takeover Facts (possibly only open to Mod posting)

 

2. Takeover talks/bollocks /whatever 

 

Then we can ignore the other if we want...

Like I have mentioned a few post above, mods need to make a decision. Keep 1 thread or stopping locking one thread and not the other.

 

It's pathetic. The name calling that led to the other thread getting locked was so uncalled for, stemming from a small issue and honestly, I'm fed up reading positive members going over there and squibbling just like I hate how it happens in here too. Its fucking tiring reading the same shit and arguments between the same blokes every 3 or 4 days.

Solution: Stop talking about there being two threads. Post and discuss positive rumours in the positive one, similar to how it's done betweem the Twitter Rumours vs Transfer Rumours threads. Discuss more realistic/pessimistic news in the other thread. Stay on topic. Don't discuss posters or the threads. Just discuss the actual takeover.

 

Simple.

Recently, they just can't resist to react. On both sides. They just bite every bait that is out there

What happened on the other thread today? I missed all of the excitement. [emoji38]

I think the best solution would be for that crab face Masters to let the takeover happen then we can delete these threads forever

we'd still argue but over which manager and whether to expand the stadium or build a new training ground.

 

Oh and then the Human rights people will arrive.

 

We are just fucked as a forum basically!!!
