Well done to the Palace fans today, lovely banner and great stuff from the Holmesdale Fanatics and Proud and Palace.

Lovely statement;

The Premier League has chosen money over morals and in green lighting this deal, has done business with one of the world’s most bloody and repressive regimes,” 

“To give the ‘thumbs up’ to this deal at a time when the Premier League is promoting the women’s game and inclusive initiatives such as rainbow armbands, shows the total hypocrisy at play and demonstrates the League’s soulless agenda where profits trump all.”

He's shat on a few clubs & their fans when it suited him so I've zero sympathy for him at all.... This is nothing to do with him being a floppy faced dmb obvs 😁

He made quite the habit of walking out on clubs. Never gave one shite. Fck him.

I'm sure players won't sign for Newcastle on principle.

Meanwhile Newcastle FC have issued a statement saying they were delighted in fans turning up wearing tea-towels and the new owners have taken it very positively. 

Leaning very quickly that you can't expect anything remotely bright from that bunch of bar-code wearing numbskulls

And if they had bought palace instead of Newcastle would the same people of been protesting . Not a chance 

It may be just me but I find the Palace Ultra thing piss funny. There's nothing better than the feeling when a crowd spontaneously get behind their team but all this organised choir singing leaves me cold.

I don't agree to be honest, there's a lot more than just a club being bought wrapped up in thus Newcastle takeover, not least regeneration, which is why the government were so keen to see the deal though.

It's murky as, and the fact that fans are being used as useful idiots is depressing as.

Fans don't give a fuck, they park their principles at the turnstiles for a shot at glory & why shouldn't they? Everyone else in football sells their soul to the devil for the big buck, not least the players. 

No, I'd hate it & lose any connection with the club if we became an Arab's plaything with foreign manager & all foreign players. Give me FV any day though it'd be nice if they had a bit more money.

That said, I know that if I packed it in, there'd be plenty of nu-fans to take my place if money was poured into the club.

This is out of context what Arry was originally saying but it applies here 

“You go in and start winning football matches, they could take Saddam Hussein in there, they don’t give a monkeys do they.

“If you start winning every week they’ll be signing ‘there’s only one Saddam’.”

Precisely.... and players will take the money with no qualms, just as they will keep schtum about the issues with Qatar.

Everyone needs to be honest if it was there club and the richest people in the world want to buy there club and it went to the vote 99 percent would go for it . Let’s be honest like Newcastle Bolton have won nothing for 50 years plus . I would love to see Bwfc win something before I die and the Newcastle fafull are the same

You may well be right.

I know fans kicked back against us having a pay day loan company as sponsors, but genuine money talks.

It's not fair to single out Newcastle though.

Football as a whole needs to have a look at itself.

Yes it does, and I'm not having a pop at Newcastle, Chelsea, City or PSG fans but until fans stop accepting anything they are given it'll keep happening. 

Put money in, and people will ignore anything and it shouldn't be like that. Foreign states literally buying national treasures up and we wave them by.

We talk about fan power and do fuck all about it.

Not all fans will feel the same though.

Some will perhaps not like the situation and may stay away or be put off a bit.

Always someone else to take their place.

Fifa should never have given the world Cup to Qatar. 

They did, but neither eufa, nor any individual countries have suggested not going.

Fans are a bit irrelevant at times when the top bods do their thing.

Once you went past the maximum wage for players back in the early 60s or whenever it was the game changed and it’s gradually changed to the point we’re players get paid millions and owners are worth billions . 
 

if we want  an even playing field we would have to go go back to the maximum wage and transfer fee I would’ve against it but the world is now all about greed so it’s not going to happen in our life time

Like you said, greed and money.

Loads of foreign workers have died building the stadiums, supposedly poor conditions etc for them.

We'll be watching just the same.

It’s true people complaining about Newcastle you might as well say about the World Cup and no demonstrations about slave labour from India to build the place 

if people want to be fair let’s put a salary and transfer cap into football . But there is no desire   from the fans or the top owners so fuck it

The amount of money sloshing around in football, particularly English football, is unbelievable. I have long predicted the day when the tap is turned off ... but it simply doesn't. 

I still believe it will, but it's proving to be resiliant.

One day, one day ... boosh, & all fckg hell will break out. When it does, these £400k pw players won't be seen for dust. If that means playing in China  or the Middle East or some other place where civil rights are non-existent, racism rife, women treating as non-beings they won't give two shites.

Also people spoke out too late, there should have been more discussion at the time.

The day that happens and it might well  be a home coming for English football and like you said you won’t see the players and owners for dust .

Premiere league football is a bastard child for world football but till it goes bust if it ever does then everyone who is benefiting will ride the wave .
And if you win like city ior Newcastle or Chelsea will still count in 100 yrs
