    "Managing director Lee Charnley emailed staff on Monday to say the decision was taken to safeguard the club's future.

    Employees including the academy and foundation charity have been instructed to apply for the job retention scheme."

    We are such a cheapskate company. We cut every corner and shamelessly conduct our business in a cap in hand manner. Many other clubs are reaching out to try and support communities in this difficult time. Our owner is just an unforgiveable ****. "times are tough, go ask the government for 80% of your pay as we're not covering you".

    I hate everything about how our club is run. Almost to the point of me removing my support in any way. I'm currently borderline and to be honest it wont take much for me to turn my back on the club entirely. It's not funny any more, there is simply no enjoyment from NUFC and support feels too much like validating the fat man and his horrible ways.

    I’m with you. I hate going to SJP now, it’s a vacuum. And the bogs are in a right ****ing state.

    Other clubs are actually guaranteeing wages for all staff throughout, including even the temporary workers who just come in when a game is on.

    This puts the club in an appalling light- although it was one of the main stories on BBC World News, just ahead of Jack Grealish’s apology.

    It was probably all of us, apart from Warm Pouch, Jasper. He can't criticise him because he is related.

    Yep. It's exactly what I would do as the owner of a club I wanted to sell - produce some negative press about the club. Its obviously a cunning ploy by Ashley to put the potential new owners off or drive the price down.

    Or maybe you think the chairman of the Sovereign Wealth Fund said "We are only going to buy the club if you will do something that will immediately endear us to the non-playing staff and the British Public"

    ok so just to stamp your name to this can you confirm it isn't happening , so I can remind you how wise you're when it's completed.

    i don't mind this btw, but the people screaming fakover are flatearthers.

    This is very much happening ... fingers crossed theres no problem at the final few hurdles

    How should I know whether its happening. I am not itk like you are. All I am doing is interpreting the signs the club are giving and the statements the potential buyers are making. They suggest to me that this hasn't progressed very far at all. I don't think its a fakeover as I think the Saudi's would come out and bad mouth Ashley if it was.

    so we agree basically ,but I think its close in the sense its been in the making for over a year... close the the finishing line ..

    sorry I'm just irritated by the fans screaming the fakover stfu abuse at the reporters ... its a big story , there's hope, so embrace it.

    I would tend to describe it as "close to the starting line". However if its a very short race it could feasibly be both.
