NUFC issue response to Richard Keys’ cryptic tweet – Another takeover wind up?

After Richard Keys posted a cryptic tweet claiming it ‘could be a very good week for NUFC fans’ last night, the club have told the Chronicle it is ‘business as usual’ on the takeover front.

It’s fair to say Richard Keys isn’t well liked amongst the majority of Newcastle fans – and this doesn’t help.

The disgraced former Sky Sports presenter has had a series of run ins on Twitter with Newcastle fans over his seemingly obsessive dislike for Rafa Benitez and at times supportive comments on Mike Ashley. The fact he’s an arrogant know it all also doesn’t do him any favours, leaving few believing this tweet posted last night:

It’s also fair to say that we’re all bored of takeover rumours after being let down so often.

So when a takeover rumour (what else could he be talking about) emerges and the source is Richard Keys on Twitter…….well let’s just say that if St James Park was full, and this tweet was shown to every person in the stadium at the same time, I think it would break the world record for the largest number of people slapping their own head in unison.

The lads at the Chronicle contacted the club as a result and stated the following late last night to help clear up Keys’ desperate tweet as best they could:

“We put Keys’ intriguing “It could be a very good week for NUFC fans” to Newcastle United and they said it’s “business as usual” as far as they’re concerned.”

Keys is based in the Far East now so it would actually be quite logical for him to have some information on this. However, it isn’t even a case of “once bitten twice shy”, it’s a case of “umpteen times bitten now can’t be bothered” when talking to comes to takeover speculation.

I personally got way to carried away during both the Staveley and BZG rumours. I was rubbing my hands in excitement like a dermatologist who has just found out they have Richard Keys as a new client.

I won’t be making that mistake again.

    I appreciate you are part of the new breed of Anti Ashley bloggers and feel the need to express any ill-informed opinion that pops into your head you but there are 2 things you need to consider here.

    1 The number of people who would slap their head in unison at Keys’ comment would be no more than the number of people who read this an say “here we go again!” This is simply because, like the Anti- Ashley brigade, the Ashley- out lot, the “we hate Steve Bruce but we don’t know why”, and the “We love Rafa because we are addicted to negative play” crowd , and all those other splinter groups, you can’t seem to consider for a moment that you may actually be in a minority, and maybe – just maybe – some people may consider Keys and Gray to be informed pundits working for the largest sports broadcasting organisation on the planet.

    and 2 – and this is the interesting one – how can we even consider taking you seriously when for some reason you seem to think Qatar, the home of BeIn sports, is in the Far East?
    It’s in the Middle East – numpty. Just showa us that your geography is on about the same level as your football knowledge.

    I actually live in Japan, so I am fully aware of the geography, I just made a mistake, a typo if you will. Not unlike the one you made when you spelt my name wrong even though it’s clearly written correctly at the bottom of the article.

    Still waiting for your article mate………you scared?
