TWO theories emerge following the latest takeover claims – Do you believe either of these?

Given what happened last year, it’s fair to say that the majority of Newcastle fans are treating the latest takeover rumours with a considerable pinch of salt – and a few theories have emerged following ‘news’ of interest from ‘seriously wealthy’ US investors.

The Daily Mail reported last night that these investors had big bucks and were capable of meeting Mike Ashley’s £300m asking price – provided our Premier League safety is not under threat in a few months time.

As you’d expect, several NUFC fans have become cynical after years of deceit and disappointment under Ashley and, as a result, these THREE theories are being thrown around on social media in response to the latest takeover claims:

1 – Another ploy to avoid January spending? – Cynical yes, but the same thing happened at the exact same time this time last year. Staveley emerged, things dragged on and it gave Ashley an excuse not to spend money in January. It’s hard not to feel like history is repeating itself.

2 – An attempt to distract from protests and bad press? – It’s quite clear that Ashley and his cronies have leaked things to the media in the past to help their cause and all these takeover links could be exactly that. He’s receiving a lot of bad press at the moment and the protests are only likely to get worse if something doesn’t change. Trying to pull the wool over some fan’s eyes perhaps?
