The Chronicle reveal intriguing development on the NUFC takeover front – very interesting

According the Chronicle, Amanda Staveley and PCP Partners ‘aren’t going anywhere’ and will return to the tabe, while a SECOND bidder has told them that they are a ‘few weeks’ from putting together an offer that would ‘match Ashley’s asking price’.

After positive noises over the past few months that a takeover could well happen early in the new year, we were dealt some crushing news a few weeks ago, with widespread reports confirming that Mike Ashley had declared talks with Amanda Staveley to be over.

All hope is not lost however, with Mark Douglas stating the following during his insightful piece on the takeover saga, suggesting that any deal (whether that be Staveley or someone else) is anything but dead:

“PCP Capital Partners are briefing that they will return in the future while a second bidder has told the Chronicle they are a “few weeks” away from coming back with an offer that would match Ashley’s asking price.

“Even in the Championship, Newcastle would be attractive.”

In fairness, this may be good to hear but there’s only so much we can take from this. It’s promising, but it’s now signings and survival that we need. A takeover is essential in the long run, but for now it feels unbearably important that we sign a striker and stay up.

That’ll be the key to keeping Rafa – the club’s biggest asset.

Do you think Ashley will still sell up and if so, to who?

  1. Still talking about this let’s forget for the time being, get the few new players we need n get behind rafa and the team we need to keep trust on the pitch to through this season n this sh## keeps popping up constantly, the players don’t need or want to here this atleast wait till the end of the season ffs

  2. We could easily be relegated this season due to eye off the ball and concentrating on this take over.

    The grass is never greener, and deepest roots are ones we plant ourselves, if you get my drift…
