    Yes to the first point but the second is only speculative based on not a lot more than they have a pair of shorts called Reuben! There are no investors from the Reubens listed anywhere though happy to be proved wrong?

    @Darren Peacock's Ponytail anything more on this shop? On the face of it looks like Ashley’s ****ed Newcastle once again with a deeply limited and restrictive kit deal for very little financial gain other than he fancies buying Castore at some point.

    I've not heard anything more but I'm waiting on a response from someone. They seem to think something is afoot.

    It's clear

    Ruebans = Castore = takeover.

    I hope that's all the information you need

    I can’t find proof mate, but you may be right and I hope you are. Certainly RB or not, it doesn’t make sense for Ashley to sell the club shop and operations unless he’s separating himself from it entirely.

    There can't be many of the richest families in England that are notoriously secretive? Then the name of the boot Hmmmm well



    They (Castore) were moved to distance themselves from rumours in Glasgow that Mike Ashley was a shareholder - which would have been disastrous given his unpopularity at Rangers and an on-going replica shirt boycott. "We have investors who like to remain private. Our biggest investor is one of the wealthiest families in the UK,"

    You said it happening. But it’s happening.

    No this shop carry on I think is a big red herring.

    Reading between the lines I think we are literally on the cusp. If we could just beat West Ham (which is difficult as they look good) and survive are we 100% confident.

    It appears that NDM and JR are cranking up the hints.

    We're all waiting for DPP or HDQ at the moment, to clarify this shop thing.
