The idea that SB will go out and do the press conference tomorrow and then be in the dugout on Sunday is disgusting and shows if nothing else that our new owners are not as yet any of the things we would like them to be.

Disgusting :lol: it’s been six days you radge, we have had far more insidious bellends locked in than Bruce, you can survive a bit longer with him, I promise

 

its not like Pardew not being sacked for the 6th time two years overdue

Get a DOF in 1st and then go from there.    The DOF will take the work load off Amanda etc so she can then move onto other items that are pressing

 

:thup:I suspect this is their reason. It seems the only one that makes sense. Just wish they'd pop a quick statement out that that's what they're doing and until then...no decisions on the football side will be made. I think we'd all agree 'fair enough' and chill a bit. I know I would.

This "caught out by the quickness of the deal", I keep hearing, doesn't wash with me. And in fact, would be worrying. Like people spending that much money forget about it until one day...BAM! :lol: "Oh fuck, we've bought a football club, Amanda!". It's a mental train of thought. 

 

And it's massively melodramatic for you to talk of eye AIDS on people just continuing the dislike for Bruce. It was going on well before the takeover happened and said takeover changes nothing about his skills. So the conversation continues. We were all frustrated that MA was yet to sack him, so a new owner gave hope of immediate dismissal.

 

Understandably, after the crazy week we've had, people are still anxious about it. 

 

It’s not melodramatic at all. I can’t stand the bloke as much as the next person but just because we haven’t got rid of him yet people are freaking out. Ideally I’d like him out, if he’s there still would it freak me out? No.

A clean slate would have been easier to do if it all just went the way the consortium wanted it to last yeah Rafa in and all the dross out simples. 

 

We keep getting told by the press that this U turn by the prem and the speed and which this all happened has blindsided the consortium a little which seems to be true and they ask for patience and wanting to review what was there. For us its very apparent for them its got to be a calculated risk, rightly or wrongly they feel that Bruce wasnt showing his best for the last 1000 games and he can do so much more when afforded the chance to or at the very least they need something to replace the nothing that is Bruce in order to keep the ship steady. 

 

Clearly waving a load of money around doesnt always make things go as quickly as you would like them to.

People making excuses as to why Bruce hasn't been sacked yet, there's something wrong with you. Maybe after 14 years of absolute shit you think it's acceptable to continue down that road with keeping Bruce as manager with no indication as for how long or if he's going to be replaced at all.

I don't think they're the people who have something wrong with them, to be honest :lol:

Put your finger in your mouth and say “red” backwards.

State of the fucking bedwetting going on from some people in here is absolutely cringeworthy. 
this time last week MA still ran the club. That’s LAST WEEK, not last month or last year. Fuck me man!

:lol: It's been a week.

 

And this is from someone who really doesn't want to see his mashed up candlewax excuse of a face on Sunday.

My worry with this is that if we win on Sunday, with him in the dugout, then you'll have literally everyone in the media telling us he needs a chance to prove himself for the coming games (more so than some already are).

 

I'm not too bothered as we have what we wanted in terms of ownership now, but can't pretend it doesn't sort of spoil Sunday a little. Wanted it to be a clean break from Ashley - but he will go soon, so can't complain.

I’ve had far more than 14 years of shit mate, hence when we’re given a once in a life time opportunity like this, this doesn’t bother too much as there’s a much bigger picture to consider

SB is going to be getting some serious shit on Sunday if we go behind from the crowd, I cant see in any way that that is the kind of message that this new supposedly shiny NUFC wants to send out as a first impression to the millions that will be watching the game.

It’s not ideal at all but in a few years when we’re in champion league and near the top of the table no-one will give a fuck

Wew, Twitter wants its patter back.


Right? The immediacy in which the takeover happened has skewed logic in some of our supporters thinking.

 

We’re run at another level now and every decision will be calculated, concise, with every outcome measured for accountability. 
 

I expect we’re being operated moving forward in a model that is insight and data driven over opinion. Rather than Ashley’s inner circle of muppets. :lol:

At the start of last week it looked like he was going to be stood in the dugout forever, just relax man :lol:
