Just wanted to say congratulations on your new ownership and wish you guys the best of luck, as a City fan I know how you feel right now I grew up when we were crap and remember going with my dad and seeing constant disappointment. I think I speak for most City fans when we wish you luck with this as we wouldn't be where we are now without our own investment. The people who will be the most bitter about this will be United, Liverpool and Arsenal fans. Enjoy all the bitterness and jealousy you are about to receive now but best of luck and maybe in a few yrs be pushing for the league.

 

Stroke of luck with that surname, like.  You'd have been fucked if your name was Mike Burnley.

I do feel a little bit sore at the accusations I've received and heard about this morning that Newcastle fans don't give a monkeys about the abhorrent Saudi regime, etc. Suppose I'll just have to try and ignote it. 

 

I've literally dreamed of seeing Amanda Staveley welcoming the press at SJP, so that short vid on the last page is literally a dream come true. :lol:

What is this communication madness?

Just beautiful.  Don't mind admitting that I shed a couple of tears watching that, it's all just so incredible.  Having someone in charge who actually loves the club and isn't going to take us for mugs...wow!

It will be so wonderful having Shearer and Keegan around in roles that are entirely appropriate.

 

It does make me nervous admittedly. I seem to have a vague recollection of our previous owner (forget the name) doing something rather similar shortly after he arrived, and things going a bit south. :lol:

More than happy for club legends to have a role of sorts at the club but I think on the football side, we need a clean slate (and that includes Benitez).

The lack of nuance in the debate is what'll be annoying, tbh. Barry Glendinning being the absolute worst culprit.

 

Like most things in life, it's not as simple as a yes/no answer.

its fairly simple stuff for new owners to get fans onside by finding random roles for club legends ashley's ultimate mistake was giving keegan the manager job rather than honorary president or non executive board member or something if it was anyone else in the job at the time and the same events happen is there anything resembling the kind of complete break in the relationship between him and the fans?

As if how rich the owners are directly correlates with success on the pitch. If we do end up at the top it will be more about the plans put in place, and how any money was actually spent. 

 

After all where did Mike Ashley rank in terms of wealth? Fat lot of use that was for the club.

Think I'll have to avoid the Guardian podcast forever now. No great loss.

Fender's decent into getting absolutely steaming :lol:

I remember those days when I was younger. Getting proper ming-monged and feeling rough as fuck the day after. It's why I packed in, as the hangovers and feeling shabby were lasting for longer, on a weekend, the older I got. :icon_puke_l: [emoji38]

:jones:

Close friends with Rafa fwiw.

 

Think all the plans are already in place and have likely been ready to go with people earmarked for all the different positions. Will just need a different manager now as Rafa is at Everton.
