Is it possible the Ruebens could fail the test based on PIF being unnamed shadow directors? :lol:

 

Not on your life, my Hindu friend.

It makes you wonder if PIF were actually back in or if Staveley and co were hoping to try and get them back involved if arbitration went ok. 
 

Maybe they are not going that route as PIF are still out.

No way would Ashley be spending any money (never mind millions) on arbitration if he wasn’t certain PIF were still there

He’s spending PIF’s deposit. Will still be millions up

So he’s still spending money (doesn’t matter where he got it from, if he did even get it off the consortium yet as seen nothing in any accounts so far) on a arbitration case which is not applicable because PIF are not involved anymore. Sorry nope.

Regarding the question of Staveley and the Reubens going it alone, I think AS was quoted before, or a close associate mentioned to the press that there is a solidarity between the 3 consortium members. They won’t go it alone while each of them have an interest still.

 

This is exactly what you’d want to see though, what would it say about the working relationship if one or two of them suddenly left for a quicker deal.

 

And this part is a guess but I would also imagine seeing the level of resistance they’ve faced and also seeing the level of support from Newcastle supporters, it won’t have gone unnoticed on any of them, even PIF. They’ll stay at the table until there’s literally no course of action left to take.

Genuine question: what would it take for you to believe that PIF are no longer at the table?

 

The person at the head of the consortium to stop saying that they are. 

 

Mind they might be out now, after the latest delay. Who knows. Certainly not you.

While there was an official statement saying they were out...isn't the fact there's an expensive arbitration case going on, about PIF, an indication that they're not actually out? I mean, if they're not part of the deal, why all the trouble and expense to prove they're separate from the SA state? :dontknow:

Amanda (to MBS): OK Mo, lets say Mike wants to have a go at this.  He has a legal team that will take the question to arbitration and then he's going to launch a CAT at the same time.  If he wins one or both will you be willing to come back to the table?

 

MBS:  Yeah, I guess so.

 

Amanda (to MA):  Mike, Mo is a go!  A 100% go!

 

Mike Ashley: OK Mandy, commence OPERATION DARK FORCES!

TBF if it was Masters job to go up against some of the richest and most influential people in the world to stop the takeover.

 

He's done a cracking job.

Like some sort of official statement from them, perhaps?

Do bore off Luke.

 

How is Mr Mauriss by the way? Joke of a ‘journalist’
