Sky reporter shares positive takeover update from NUFC – despite claims it’s ‘dead in the water’..

Sky Sports reporter Pete Graves has responded to claims over the weekend that a Peter Kenyon takeover bid is close to collapse by stating it is “100% not dead”.

The local Sky man also insists that ‘people he trusts’ with ‘excellent ties’ to the club are STILL positive about a deal being concluded, with him stating once again that he’s cautious but optimistic about a deal being done at some point in the new year.

This is promising to hear and a slight glimmer of hope for us given it had been reported in the Sun AND the Mirror on Saturday night that the deal was dead after no progress over the Christmas period, stating Kenyon was £100m short of Mike Ashley’s asking price.

The Mirror’s similar story also stated that NONE of four potential bidders have the cash ready to do a deal – but Graves’ update suggests a deal is far from dead.

Whilst the two newspaper reports are negative, the fact a repuatable Sky reporter is stating the deal isn’t dead is a positive sign, and I’d be much more inclined to believe what he says as opposed to The Sun for obvious reasons.

As mentioned by Pete Graves , neither parties are saying much and there could be a lot going on behind the scenes, so let’s hope no news (aside from the negative stories over the weekend that seems to have stated what we already knew) is good news.

  1. Not gonna happen.It will be what it will be.I’ve said it before and will say it again:the only way to get rid of the FCB is to get relegated a few divisions down and start again.Simple as.

  2. Graham. If I thought that that would do it I’d happily accept it.
    It would give me great pleasure to see his “investment” wiped out overnight.

  3. Why do people think someone better is going to take over the club, we are one of the only clubs in the black, so as a business very successful. Instead of glorifying a manager that has one of the worst records at NUFC and does nothing but complain about all his players and most of them he brought in?
    Its a pity SBR never had the support Benitez has especially when we were sitting 5th at the time and been in the Champions League a few times too, before the fans got poor old Freddie to sack him. What a strange world eh?

    31st December 2018 and still more click baiting fake news. Please five it a rest.

    It’s funny that one minute people will slate the Sun as a source yet suddenly believe it when it’s negative news re. a takeover and praise Sky news and suddenly fail to believe it when it’s remotely promising..
