Sadly with that approach Leicester are only going one way and we know where that is.

We lost the 'very winnable' home tie, and the winners couldn't have got an easier first round draw ! Guess we'll 'concentrate on the league', probably for the best !

Re: Season 2017/2018

Seems the Staveley source was more than just rumour, Club Lawyers are ready to set up a meeting amid reports she wants to buy the club outright but only values it at £300 million and she'd want to stick £150 million straight into the club on top of the £100m in TV money to give Newcastle a £250m budget over the two upcoming windows.

No word on the other three groups though but again the Chinese group are said to be desperate to get in on a takeover but can't until overseas investment restrictions are dropped.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Yeah correct that, outlets are already confirming Staveley's team met Newcastle chiefs yesterday afternoon and have started the negotiation process. It's expected she'll be the 'sole' owner of the club should it go through but will be heavily backed with Chinese and Arab investment via FCP capital I believe it is.

The bookies have a different look at things however.
Shahid Khan - 11/1
Mikhail Prokhorov - 14/1
Mark Zuckerberg 14/1
Tilman Fertita - 18/1
Mark Cuban - 33/1
Rupert Murdoch - 50/1
Richard Branson - 66/1
Vince McMahon - 66/1
Donald Trump - 80/1

I mean I understand why they're playing around a bit given they can't offer odds on Staveley or the other three groups that signed NDA's but Zuckerberg at 14/1? same odds as Prokhorov whom is more likely to complete such a deal.
Obviously it's just a list to part fools from their money of course. I can't imagine the ramifications of someone like Zuckerberg buying a Premier League team and bankrolling it to the moon, circumventing FFP on the way by.

Last time I heard him pop up was for Spurs? which is more than affordable for him and he flat out denied it.

I'm worried Robert Kraft is legitimately interested though, don't like the idea at all. He doesn't seem much better than what we already have, although a statement claiming Ashley will not sell to anyone that hasn't got the ability to take the club forward may well be a good parting gift.

Onwards for the night though, United/Benfica for me, because Benfica are having a stinker, want to see Lukaku continue his ways.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Nice to see the United players and Lukaku in particular consoling and ‘bigging up’ the young Benfica keeper at the end. Job done but not the greatest match TBH.

Re: Season 2017/2018

Amanda Staveley launches £300m takeover of Newcastle. Wonder what the eventual cost is going to be and whether it's going to go through. Strange times in the north. Questions surrounding does Ashley have to take the offer, we're unaware of potential bids from China or the Middle East or whether either of those two could be completed in the time frame he wants. Just wish it was done with now.
