Do I want it to happen? Yes. - Do I think it'll happen? Hopefully, but not sure. Judging by how things go our way, I'm cautiously optimistic as I think the majority are.

 

Your sense of "realism" isn't that, it's just optimistic delusion and you're attacking anyone who thinks different. There's no way anybody outside of the actual case(s) know what is actually going on, everything that's said publicly is pure speculation. We've got some amazing firepower on our side trying to make this happen, and I fucking hope that the PL fold and give in but judging by our luck in the past, I wouldn't bet my house on it, maybe the kids, but not the house.

We're all here for the same thing, we love the club and we want it to succeed but attacking each other because someone thinks differently is just fucking idiotic.

 

What a very sensible and accurate post.

Honestly, I defend my point of view as firmly and certainly as I can, I think it is important that I do that.

 

However, it is a definite misinterpratation and exageration to describe my comments as "attacking", it really is!

We ought to have a seperate thread for those that want to to mindlessly speculate in whatever rubbish is out there to keep this thread from being derailed every couple of hours for the sake of those that don't want to speculate on the rubbish.

That’s what the positive one is for. Go crazy

NUFC being secretive and the Premier League being secretive are both two organisations that have a history of being secretive. That does not mean the PL being secretive about things like they are being secretive now does not mean they shouldn't be open about it. The fact both the PL and NUFC should, and could, have been more open about their actions can exist at the same time without there being an incessant need to point at the other.

Why would they need to post things like this if they were positive about winning?

 

Just have this awful feeling there’s something else we don’t know about which has caused this sudden public cry for fairness

They wouldn’t.

 

It’s quite clear now they’re trying to get as much pressure for the arbitration to be held public, hoping it’ll force the PL’s hand into negotiating.

 

You never know through, it might go our way.

Yeah sure, it might. It also might just fizzle out. I’m not confident anymore, I obviously still care enough to keep checking every day for news on it but I’m beyond caring if it’s a worst case scenario. There has to be a point where supporting this club just isn’t worth it anymore.. I think a lot of us are at that point but are just holding out for some good news.

 

It may never come so we all have a decision to make at some stage soon perhaps.

No idea where this all is but I can understand the buying side wanting a hurry on if at all possible. The season will be here before we know it. PL seemingly being allowed to filibuster to their hearts content, if we’ve got the dirty on them get it out.

 

We’re little more than Mrs Doyle offering tea at the moment.

It definitely seems a pressure tactic to get the PL to fold before arbitration, that doesn't mean they aren't confident of a positive result, they'd much rather get it done without the need of the additional waiting time of an arbitration and the possibility of a bent judge with some bias skewing the information to fit an agenda.

So, if it all goes in our favour and the takeover goes ahead, do the those who were positive and proven correct become the realists? I guess delusion is a point of view.

When/If the takeover happens, I don’t think the positive’s will gloat just be so happy after a long prolonged affair….similarly i would hope those who felt inclined to believe the takeover will never happen, won’t say “i told you so”…After all we are all in this together and just want the agony to end.

This 'realist' bollocks is the most annoying thing in here for me. 

 

Realist my arse.

Also don't they need to be on reasonably good terms with the PL if they do end up running the club? Really struggle to see PIF wanting to get involved even.

What a thing to say!!

 

I must have posted 100 times or more that the (so called) Positive Thread, would be far more correctly called the Realistic Thread.

 

Because that is what it is, that is what we are, and always have been.

[emoji38][emoji38] If that thread was realistic we'd be entering mbappe's second season at the club, I mean I stay out of there to let you all have your fun, but what we want to happen != what actually happens

Another protest, where were they when Ashley was raping the club… FML [emoji38]

 

Just let the whole thing close out whatever happens, and we’ll be done with it all. Posturing for fucking retweets and shit! :rant:
