The human rights atrocities associated with this takeover are really starting to pile up.

 

 

Enough to make you a Sunderland supporter.

I must admit that I feel exactly the same. The Saudi Arabian money is dripping with blood. It's disgraceful that the English and European football authorities are allowing this investment. If I were a Geordie I would never be back to St James's Park. Newcastle United have sold their soul to the devil.

I take it you don't live in the UK?

The UK sells billions of pounds worth of arms to SA, I take you won't come back. 👍

I see Shearer is going to accept job with new owners. No wonder he was keen on them taking over, more cash for him.

He did seem happy when they took over...

Shearer kicked the Norther Irish victim in the Heid at Filbert Street. The one that went onto play and manage Celtic(twice).

John Hartson kicked Eyal Berkovic in the heid during a training session whilst both were at West Ham.

That incident has followed Hartson around ever since

 

However it was retaliation

 

 

Yes it was retaliation, unlike the elbow smash on Andy Webster that is never mentioned. Particularly bad because he called Webster out for cheating, Celtic backed him and then we produced the video evidence. Unfortunately because it wasn't an official Old Firm Video he wasn't done for it. Should have got a ten game ban.

Aye that was an absolute shocker, didn't they accuse Webster of elbowing himself in his own face? 

 

Have you ever tried to elbow your own face, you look a bit daft trying to!

Bruce will get a nice little pay off and be back managing in the championship before Christmas.

£8m is a big pay off for such a useless ***** of a manager.

Niemi’s gloves

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58921000

 

interesting piece from the BBC web site on the thoughts of Mike Rigg, technical director of Man City during their transformation, on how Newcastle might or might not be able to  follow suit in becoming a global force. 
 

One or two bits in it are sort of relevant to what any club in Scotland wanting to build a challenge to the OF would have to do. With rose tinted specs on, you might even think that we have being going along the right path in recent months.

Honest to feck how does a perennial failure even gets gigs never mind a huge pay off 

 

Must be great to be a shit football manager from a financial perspective. You can lose every game and still be minted.

There are about 13 games before the transfer window opens,  by then they could be cemented to the drop.  How then are they going to attract these superstars in a relegation battle rather that a league challenge.  Even if they avoid relegation its goint to be 2/3 seasons before Champions league football.  But If you are a superstar you are going to go to a club thats guaranteed it.  Piggy back on other mugs efforts.  Man City did it the right way, but they were not a basket case to begin with.  Its a chicken and egg situation.

 

Shearer, Ant and Dec, Terry and Bob, Sharon and Tracy...your Toon is gang doon

What's with the timescale.

 

It's inevitable that Newcastle United will be a major force.

 

Even Klopp has said it will mean one less place for CL qualification

 

It's going to be Chelsea, Man City, Newcastle and a.n other every year by the looks of it.

They don't need superstars in january though, all they need are better than they have now and will be able to throw cash at any player not being targeted by the CL clubs. Come January they will no doubt be targeting loans for players not playing elsewhere rather than asking players to join a 3-5 year project

The media in this country are really a bunch of amateurs now.

 

Bruce was told on Monday to carry on as normal yet everything reported since the takeover was that he wouldn't be there for the Spurs match.

They are and by taking that away and pushing up the fees that will reduce demand.

 

It'll also increase the burden on the state sector which in turn will push up taxes and put pressure on class sizes. 

 

As it stands a load of people that can afford to are paying twice, effectively an additional tax on the rich.

This was reported very early after the taheover by Sky sports reporter Keith Downie who is usually "in the know" re NUFC matters.  By co-incidence Downie is a Jambo.

No one's forcing them to send their kids to posh schools, and private, profit making businesses shouldn't be tax exempt.

Of course it will, basic economics, we aren't talking about a marginal difference here. Surprised you aren't arguing that for that actually; thought the desire for equality of opportunity was a large part of the point.

Take the point though I am clear headed that in the end it'll cost everybody more except for a number of parents for whom it was a marginal call/stretch in the first place who are now unable to have their kids attend.

 

Just pointing out that the law of unintended consequences exists in this space.

There's more demand than supply for places in these schools, the next in line will get accepted.

 

Why should I be subsidising profit making businesses that I could never afford to use?

Paying for your child for a private education is not a tax.

That’s a real shame for those poor EPL clubs… ONLY 4 CL spots available. Boo feckin hoo! … and now, apparently, there is another ‘big boy’ to fight it out. Maybe UEFA could give the EPL another (5th)spot? 
Utterly hate what the ‘Champions’ (why do they still call it that?) League has become. 🤬

I agree - when you can get all semi finalists from the same country it loses it's appeal. As for that borefest with Liverpool and Spurs the other year - brutal.

 

You can be champions of Europe even if you are not champions of the country you play in like Chelsea beating English League champions Man City.

 

Farcical

It is farcical. Liverpool finished in 4th place, thirty points behind the winners Arsenal in 2004. They got a place in the Champions League for that wonderful achievement and ended up winning it.🙄
