Guarantee if anyone even remotely unscrupulous tries to buy us it will be blocked.

I wouldn’t be happy, but I’d tolerate it tbh.

Thought Saudi bought Newcastle?

Who's left? Dubai?


Yeah, why not.

They're not going to buy us now so the question is moot. Would take them over the Glazers though I'd still want them strictly behind the scenes.

No.

But unfortunately there aren't that many people around who can afford a 6 billion quid football club.

What’s the check? A right and proper person or something? And Monopolies and Mergers etc. they’ll find a reason if it looks like we’ll be too powerful.

And then pay for the calibre of player that would actually put our squad on a par with City, et al. It's a horrible business

none of these owners should have been allowed in.

commercialisation = corruption. give football back to the people.

We can either be sanctimonious and mid-level.

Or accept the way the world is rather than how we’d like it to be.

Either position is fair enough.

100% no

Thankfully they’ve already bought Newcastle so they’re not an option

Dubai the only one from that part of the world not in the game yet so they would be the most likely

Sky deal got kiboshed fairly quickly.
