I wondered what the reference to September was in De Marco’s tweet yesterday, this makes a little sense of it.

 

I’m the most optimistic person behind manorpark in relation to takeover, however this is due to mussels always being at there best when the month finishes with ‘ber’ at the end. I do however think he knows the correct spelling of ‘leeks’.

So are we taking Caulkin seriously or does he know little to nothing?

Never read the article mate haven’t got an Athletic subscription anymore. Caulkin is close to Staveley so I presume she would know if arbitration had begun.

He is most definitely to be taken seriously. People like to claim he got made a fool of in the summer but he didn't. He reported the situation as Amanda understood it - he's said numerous times that he has contact with her - and then the takeover was Grand Old Duked.

I do think he's erred on the side of caution though since the summer and he seems less willing to speculate. If he's putting out dates now he's most likely got good reason for believing so. Depressing.

EDIT: Having re-read Geroge's quote in context, I don't think he's saying Spetember. I think it just means "as thing stand, without an arbritration hearing", but now we know a hearing is likely to happen soon. Meltdown averted.

:saylor:

Arbitration (or even an agreement before arbitration) won't take place before we're mathematically safe.

If we were sitting comfortably in the table, we would've had a resolution either way.

As soon as it was probable (or even likely) we were going to be relegated, everything was paused.

Pointless for two very expensive legal teams fighting for a PL takeover when it may not even be necessary.

Surely it comes back to the fact that Saudi openly pirated* premier league TV?

 

*Did nothing to stop the pirating of it anyway.

Yeah I think it does but the media outrage seems more to do with human rights issues.

Aye he got some amount of shit for the no red flags comment but we are hearing today even Boris Johnson was told it was days away from being done

Is this not saying in the current state [of no arbritation taking place] we'll still have MA in charge next season? As opposed to saying it'll not be before August till we get a takeover. 

 

I'm sure I read Arbritation is a very quick process once it starts.

Pretty pointless article then. We all know Ashley remains in place if no arbitration :lol:

Any significance to the use of leak instead of leek? Although mussel season is October to March

It was ‘leak’ and ‘leek’ that first piqued my interest in his tweet.

A bulk of the newspapers picked up where they left off with the “Killer Saudi Prince” thing. Someone has to have been feeding them new information that they’d bother running with this again. Id say that’s what the reference is to.

One thing I did notice though was that the consortium/club were very naive in terms of using the press. They should have been running with a corruption theme to muddy the waters and put pressure on the PL.

Scallops with leeks and rich mussel soup = He’s got the leaks all ready to present and then the rich muscle is moving in.

Fish supper last night = He ate Amanda out

Pretty obvious.

😂 do you think they let George Caulkin watch?

If you run with a theme of corruption, especially using the press to do so, you’d better be sure you’ve got evidence to back you up surely?

When have the media ever needed evidence to run with a story? Whether MBS is guilty as sin about the Journalist, there’s fuck all evidence, like physical evidence. That he ordered and facilitated it, but that doesn’t stop the press from calling him a killer.

What is the dependency between league safety and the arbitration?

If the arbitration is on the directors test and who is subject to it, it's separate from our league status?

How long is arbitration likely to last? I've seen mentions of it taking a matter of weeks to two years. Is there a timescale or a deadline? Do both parties take months to prepare their cases and then it's heard over a set period of time? Will there be further hearings, appeals and the like? I'd be interested to hear how the whole thing is likely to work.

 

The fact that they haven't even started the cunt, despite this being talked about for months on end doesn't bode well.

 

Fucking stuck in pergatory man. It's the hope that keeps you going.
