    I mean I know a few were pretty adamant it was a done deal and they were waiting for the end of the season to say so. Just think its a strange time to be pushing this agenda.

    I mean I genuinely have not an atom inside me which truly TRULY believes this but I'm happy to be wrong in this case.

    I just think the timing is very odd. I mean Ashley could have pushed this as he needs cash. He has a willing buyer and he can get access to that cash ASAP.

    This is the reason I think it’s real. But the timing is odd. Or is it? Ashley says it’s now or never. They see us as safe. If the season doesn’t end then we are safe. We are pretty safe anyways even if it it carries on.

    So from a survival point of view we look a good prospect. But still....

    I've had my Muesli. I remain unconvinced. I hope I am wrong. I am just a negative bastard <laugh>

    That was always the rumour, though it's a rumour anyone could have made up and most of us just felt that day would come and go without a takeover. However, the whole thing has never been denied by anyone. Means nothing for NUFC - if you asked them "are you affected by Covid-19" they'd just give no comment. But from the buying side it's pretty significant. I even had a friend out there claimed it was a "done deal" from his chats with PIF (nope, not making that up either!!).

    From the looks of it, we're not going down. In fact there seems to be no way this season can be completed (tough **** Liverpool) and will in fact just be cancelled. There seems to be zero reason to impact next and future seasons just to complete this one. And not only will it likely be cancelled, but there will be a reduction in salaries, player costs and also FFP will have lowered boundaries. If anything, it's the perfect storm for a buyer, not even mentioning the financial ****show Mike Ashley's main empire is experiencing.

    A buyer coming in now has loads of time to scour the market, sort things out behind the scenes, start revamping the complex and backroom, etc. If I was them, I'd be pushing on hugely right now.

    I just think the fakeover stuff is nonsense .. hes not selling a house and that can fall through, so imagine selling a prem club... its moronic .. there are simply reasons why interest never lead to a purchase..

    I think of it as Liverpool buying Carroll in that there'll be no sale unless Ashley's walking from negotiations literally pissing himself with glee.
