If we are taken over..

I don’t know about you lads. But I don’t want us to go stupid straight away like city did with Robinho and have a load of losers playing for the club on massive wages.

I’d rather get Poch or Benitez in. And build it up gradually over 3-5 years. We’ve waited 50 years for a trophy and is prefer we built up to it and do it right.

RE: If we are taken over..

Why would anyone want to wait for success rather than have instant success?

RE: If we are taken over..

I agree with Mbiwa to a certain extent. We need a decent manager and good signings, players that will put in a shift and didn't just come for high wages i.e. Robinho. I don't think we'll get instant success regardless, FFP rules will prevent that anyway, and higher revenue streams will take time, so I expect a few good signings, a lot of improvements, but no notable success for the next few seasons.
That's if this takeover goes ahead, the longer its going, the more I feel like we're going to get fucked over. Hate the way that Newcastle are being expected to take the morale high ground regarding the Saudis, but it's fine for them to invest in the UK elsewhere, visit the queen etc, and for the UK to supply them with weaponry.

RE: If we are taken over..

Players will be coming because of the high wages offered, we are going to be the next Chelsea/ Man City, but far wealthier.

Fuck building the club over a few seasons, we've had 13 years of a bloke killing it, the sooner we are competing at the top again the better.

Yes i know it will take a few seasons to get to the top regardless, because of the shit squad and training facilities we have thanks to Ashley, but the sooner we get there the better surely?

RE: If we are taken over..

We can't spend mega money straight away because of Fifa fair play rules. I'm not sure of the sum we're allowed, but the one thing we might have to thank Ashley for is being a tight cunt, as his balancing of the books (robbing us blind) has accrued some leg room to spend bigger.

RE: If we are taken over..

Don't forget he also failed to keep our advertising revenue high by giving it to his own company . That and not having people to sell the advertising means we don't have the revenue at the moment which will stymie our ability to spend

Give it a year when we have far higher revenues and the players will be here

RE: If we are taken over..

I agree we don't need a bunch of mercenaries, although we all know that the best players in the world will all inevitably be driven by money, I don't want us to be held to ransom by greedy agents who will hike up the fees because we're the richest club in the world.............however we need to start scoring goals so griezmann, icardi and mbappe should be signed straight away.

On the revenue front, I hope the merchandising comes back to the club rather than being a subsidiary of Sports Direct. That's the kind of snakey deal he'd try and pull that he keeps that for 5 years or so.

There’s no such thing as instant success. In normal circumstances it takes time.

I’d rather we got our shit together with training facilities manager. Setup stadium. Etc etc and buy top players are we go. Not sign a load of mercenaries at the start.

But yes it’s a good dilemma to have.

Yea i want them to sort the training ground out and stuff aswell, i'd also like to win something sooner rather than later though that's all.

RE: If we are taken over..

City and Chelsea both wasted obscene amounts of money before FFP came in.

Crespo Mutu Duff Shevchenko there is probably loads more. City were worse Bony £20m Santa Cruz £25m. Adebayor £30m Robinho £30m Elano Bellamy £20m even random strikers I can’t even remember for £20m +

With FFP you can’t afford those mistakes now. I’d rather we bought 2-3 top players a year and built it up gradually. That’s how a real team is built.

But even as I’m typing this I’m sceptical about this takeover completing.
