Maybe because if it took you a while to think about that it might take the players a few months?

A few big ifs but, if they get a decent coach, if they can sign sign a couple in Jan like Coutinho and Ramsey, if they can get Wilson and ASM to play enough games, you'd expect them to stay up quite comfortably and then kick on next season

This is the same sort of reasoning applied to our decade of underachievement in the 90's/early 2000's. Our Championship squad were on good money and most realised that they would be surplus to requirement should we go up. They subsequently became experts in failure!

I don't think relegation would be a massive issue for them anyway.

There's an angle I hadn't thought about before. The current players are nearly all shit but we know as well as anyone that if you're organised and put loads of effort in then that can be enough to stay up. However, now...why are any of these players going to give a fuck, you know that (ASM aside) you have no realistic future at the club. They absolutely do need a decent number of points on the board come January or it limits even further the scope of who you can sign.
I think players would still try and perform if they're guaranteed to be leaving sooner than later, as they will want decent moves away.

If anything it could motivate them more. If they play well they get a decent move, or a good wage increase to stay.

I guess a notable difference between Fosun and the new Newcastle owners, is that the Newcastle owners will be actively involved in the way the Saudi is run, Fosun aren't dictating how China is run.

Of course not. It’s like being surprised that Tesco have minimal input in how this country is run.

The arms length part of the Newcastle deal is an absolute joke.

Varane out for a few weeks and Maguire is also injured. Worrying times for Ole.

There's definitely a lot of 'sous le maillot' going on there.
