    See my comments elsewhere on removing Sports Direct ads. With a little luck it’s already done.

    I seriously suggest you stick to your club board then fella if you feel like that, until you learn the rules outside of it. <ok>

    I haven't seen if Roy has done anything more than what I've seen.
    If he's done something bang out of order, then I retract all my statements.

    But I find it weird considering that most of everything on that board is offensive drivel.

    I do enjoy that drivel though.

    Everything is tolerated on that board apart from people who try too hard to be funny, which is why Roy and HIAG are always banned.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody banned for longer than a week or two on that board apart from Matt the virgin retard basket-case, he’s doing a long stretch for his own benefit.

    They’re quite lenient, it’s just banter bans mostly.

    For the record, I like Chaos, always have done.

    I think he can be an attention seeking, contrary **** at times though, and I’ve challenging him on it, as I know it winds people up. He got a weeks ban as he went too far. When he comes back there’ll be no issue with me, the fella is alright.

    So for anyone interested, the suggestion is Jamie Reuben is fronting with Amanda Staveley, backed by Saudi money. Jamie's the 33 year old son of David Reuben, UK-based billionaire and part of the Reuben family, worth an estimated £18bn.

    No need to even write how much Prince Mohammed as worth.

    Oh, go on, then - his family is reported to be worth over $2tn (trillion).

    So why are they all going in together? They could all just splash the cash individually (other than Amanda)

    I'm no City bod, mate, but I think investmenr fund vs individual ownership has different rules. Man City aren't owned by Mansour, who could easily do so - they're owned by investment funds.

    Interestingly people saying "we won't splash the cash". Utter bollocks. Mike's been running this on empty since he took over - he could easily sanction OTT sponsorship from the likes of SD, Lilywhites, Firetrap, Lonsdale, etc., and fudge the figures to make us competitive. Easily. He just chooses not to bother. Add in the fact he could let the club "lose" against revenues in line with FPP and new owners could probably spend around £300m on players in a single window. Our finances are so in-check, we have more wiggle room than any other top flight club, anywhere in the world.
