Discussion NE Long Thread

Nice try..... however we do not set our ladies rates. What they charge is their decision. :hi:

... and the anomaly I’ve found isn’t directly to do with rates.
You can't be leaving us hanging like that surely...
I'd imagine it's posher flats, more extras included, outcalls with no surcharge, shower time included in a booking, fluffier towels, complimentary mints.... that sort of thing? ;)
 
Kissing is extra? After all, there's a risk. I remember someone talking about a forum where punters discuss escorts who kiss during a pandemic. Utter filth.
No extras - the price advertised is the price you pay. This is part of the discussion when a lady sets her rates... and obviously we cannot infer or discuss any services on offer with clients.

We issued safety guidance and best safe / risk minimisation working practise as part of the collaboration with NHS Northumbria Sexual Health Services. We provided grants and subsidies for the additional costs to allow ladies to work within the safe/ risk minimisation working practise framework.

Apart from putting clients in a sheep dip or installing the disinfectant shower spray system that some London theatres thought was a good idea until the HSE said ‘ please don’t spray members of the public with disinfectant’ or providing full body condoms ...I can hand on heart say ‘We are doing the best we can’ :hi:
 
It's not a bad thread as it discusses legit massages. It's had issues because of it but a legit Thai massage can send you to sleep. Especially when she's walking on your back. You can feel your back touching your front (this is probably not the case)
Oh I’ve had a proper Thai walk on your back bend you into shapes massage when I lived in Munich. It was ...an experience.

It’s just...170 pages !?!? It gets a bit soporific after the first 5 pages...
 
How come Sheffield United can be owned by the Saudi Arabian. Prince Abdullah bin Musa’ad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, yet Newcastle can't be owned by a Saudi. Is that not double standards.
I watched a very interesting video on YouTube a while ago about all the people who would try and block the takeover and their reasons. Main reason seemed to be jealousy and the fact that those in power seem to hate us.
 
Wonder if the whole rigmarole will start again with the septic trying to buy the club. Or will he run a mile.

I guess strengthening the team is going to be difficult. What player would want to join a club that the owner doesn't want to own?

Similarly I can hardly imagine FCB digging deep to strengthen the team when he seems happy enough to narrowly avoid relegation.

Isn't it something to do with Dominic Rabb publishing a list of 40 people involved in the killing of Jamaal Khashoggi and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the chairman of the group who made the take over attempt is on the list .. so linked with "committing the gravest human rights violations"
So the Premiership stalled on the moral fitness of the Saudi group and they seem to have got sick of the slow "progress" and fear they won't pass the fit and proper test so withdraw bid for the moment

I don't know to be honest, I know the Saudi's have a bad reputation as far as human rights go but the owner of Sheffield United is, as far as I know, a member of their royal family. I believe the chairman was going to be Yasir Al-Rumayyan who's a banker and nothing to do with those on Dominic Rabb's list.

It's a shame, even if you don't support football or you hate Newcastle, the investment they would've brought could only benefit the region as a whole.

As far as I know there is no provision in the O and D test for ‘moral fitness’ : it’s based on business and law fitness.

Had it been Man united it would have been a done deal

So the sweatshop owner has been stopped from selling NUFC to the international journalist murderers? And that's a bad thing? :unknown:
And that’s all there is to it ? I didn’t realise it was as simple as that :timeout:
I guess we’ll just have to get back in our place and wait for the next whiter than white multi billionaire to come along eh ? Shouldn’t be long, there’s loads of them !

Over on Wearside, Ellis Short wasn't great, and Stewart Donald is an opportunist shyster but rather them than the associates of a morally bankrupt Saudi prince.

I don't have a problem with them blocking the takeover because of Saudi's history, What I object to is double standards. In 2013 Prince Abdullah bin Musa'ad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia took 50% share in Sheffield United then took full control in 2018/19.

If Sheffield United can have a Saudi prince running the club as chairman, why block Newcastle who were going to have a banker as chairman. It's all Saudi money.

I'd guess nobody cared because it happened outside of the Premiership, and also their international wrongdoings were not so high profile back then. It's a shame football generally has left behind the likes of John Hall and Bob Murray.

Give it another year and newcastle might be outside the premiership.

Give it two years and the Tyne wear derbys could be back :bomb:

...because the Saudi takeover happened when Sheffield United were 17th in the Championship and it was a joint venture with existing owner till the court case. Which the existing owners lost as they tried to do a number on the Saudis, and apparently you can’t do a retrospective fit and proper ownership test when teams get promoted.

Wonder if they`d be interested in buying Sunderland then

will Sunderland be in the championship? you think Newcastle will fall that far ...Ashley is a business man he will protect his investment .. selling as a Premiership team is so much more lucrative ....

I was joking about Newcastle dropping to division 1 to meet Sunderland but I think another spell in the championship for Newcastle is a serious risk. With all the turmoil I can't see them attracting decent players and after all they are only a mid table/relegation fight team anyway.

I wonder if there's any truth in the article that says it was Ashley trying to renegotiate which was instrumental in the withdrawal.

I'd put nothing past that man.

I always think Ashley will protect his investment [long term].. unlike Ellis Short who just lost interest.
Even if they go down they'd maintain most of the squad and come back quickly just like before

If they had a specific reason for not passing the deal then they should come out and explain why.....they didn’t refuse it after all....they have the O&D test which governs who is suitable, stop acting like a secret society and explain what led to the lack of action ! :unknown:

Ashley is a grade A cunt, he runs his businesses at the absolute minimum level needed. You just have to look at the issues raised over the working conditions at Sports Direct main warehouse, he even admitted paying staff below minimum wage.

During his time at Newcastle he has seen that the best players can be sold for a profit and the club still has a reasonable chance of staying up. It's a risk he is prepared to take. He even made a massive profit out of being relegated. I can't see us coming straight back up a third time when we get relegated again.

I will be amazed if ASM is still here next season, he's worth a fortune now.

The 2015 banner "We don't demand a team that wins, we demand a club that tries!" sums up the way most supporters think, unfortunately Ashley doesn't think the same way.

yes he's a business man .. and sees the value of premiership status .... he'll do enough... just... to keep that status
.. if it fails he'll keep most of the squad take the parachute payments and get back asap .... back to money machine of the Premiership
..... it won't be pretty ... it'll be tumultuous but that status is precious to Newcastle's value ..after all Sunderland own the ground .. have a status 1 academy = £20 / 30 million .. Newcastle what £300 / 400 million "value" .. due to Premiership status.
Who ever owns Sunderland will have to fund the promotions to the Premiership .. and that's not guaranteed not instant.... Newcastle already there - so vital to Ashley to maintain that ... he'll spend enough.. just enough no more
 
West Midlands and some of the London boroughs have a high Muslim population density too.

Government world have known it was Eid so would they have needed to act so last minute?
I think it’s a pre-emptive measure based on R numbers - the areas now on lockdown were in the top ten for the past 2 weeks. However announcing it late at night -essentially on what is the equivalent of Christmas Eve- is not exactly brilliant timing.... i don’t think it’s going to be a case of it being ignored I think it’s a case of people finding out too late. Then the second wave happens ....

I wonder if they are using infections per 100k population as their metric. According to this report it does look quite volatile.

Sorry but being relegated twice during his ownership tells me he takes calculated risks but sometimes his calculations are way off.

Newcastle were relegated in the 1988/89 season and it took us 4 years to get back to the top flight, getting into the premier league in '93/94. 16 years in the top flight followed until Ashley got his hands on it, now we'll struggle to avoid a third relegation during his tenure. We can only punch above our weight for so long.

Premier league status is the only thing in Newcastle's favour, massive investment is needed on the training facilities and the academy. Plans were passed in 2014 for improvements to the training ground, Quote "The statement promised “a stunning new state-of-the-art training complex” with a swimming pool, a hydrotherapy unit, and a fitness pool which would see the club “occupy one of the finest training facilities of it’s kind in Europe”. Instead as work is yet to start, we have one of the worst.
 
The one thing Sunderland got right was the infrastructure - a modern stadium and great training facilities, all of which are owned by the club. Even the pink seats have been replaced. It's just the minor details like "playing football" that they've never quite ironed out.

Edit: This is post number 777 from me, which coincidentally was the number of the bus I used to get to Sunderland. :hi:
