    spokeswoman Amanda Staveley told Soccer on Sunday:

    "But 48 people have worked on this deal, and only 6 of them have been beheaded.”
    “That’s less than 15%,” she added. “You can’t say fairer than that.”


    what the f***

    crazy bitch.....

    This has to be a wind up. Nobody would say this in a serious interview...

    “I’m excited,” said the British businesswoman. “The media will focus on the negatives, like the beheading. That’s how they sell papers. But 48 people have worked on this deal, and only 6 of them have been beheaded.”

    “That’s less than 15%,” she added. “You can’t say fairer than that.”

    Of course it is. Nothing in the interview can be taken seriously.

    I mean there's another article on there saying VAR has won the Man Utd player of the year, and Vince McMahon has taken over Sunderland.

    It's a spoof. But I bet most people had to do a double take with it. That in itself is a damning indictment not only of the authorities who would contemplate sanctioning the takeover but also a large percentage of football fans who will happily leave morals on the doorstep where their own club is concerned. It's one of the main reasons football is f**ked, because football fans who, collectively would hold massive power, will never join forces to help clean up the game.

    Very much so. All the articles are hilarious, but have some elements of truth in there.

    It would be funny if at the presser after Newcastle's first home win of the season Bruce came out with the statement: "We had to flog a few players in the transfer window to sharpen up the squad".
