New Saudi takeover prediction arrives from The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards – “Brace yourselves”

The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards has told NUFC supporters “brace yourselves” – believing we’ll see a second wave of Saudi takeover talk between now and Christmas.

Murmurs have started to quietly reverberate in recent days due to sports lawyer Nick de Marco – the barrister Mike Ashley has reportedly assigned to handle legal proceedings against the Premier League – posting a cryptic tweet. while the ‘plane trackers’ within our fanbase have picked up on some intriguing movement.

Now Edwards, whose popularity among Toon supporters had dwindled due to his negativity around the takeover, has told the Everything is Black and White podcast that it’s not done just yet – although only time will tell if that’s a good or a bad thing!

Here is what he said in full:

“It’s going to start up again, I guarantee it, brace yourself, my friends.

“I think it will fire up again, I would say before Christmas. There will be some leaks, I think.

“Whether it’s going to happen, I don’t know. I don’t think so, but I think we will see a little wave of takeover stuff start again

“As long as the Saudis are there, nobody else is realistically going to try and buy them.

“I think the Saudis’ presence scares everybody else off. So, whilst they are still at the table – and they are, we are led to believe, still at the table – until it’s rejected.

“But, again, that’s what the legal action will do – these are the options when he (Mike Ashley) takes the legal action: he either sells the football club to the Saudis, or he kills it forever, and they can’t come back.”

What a Christmas present that would be for Newcastle supporters if our club became the richest in the world just in time for the January window!

However, we would be extremely foolish to even get remotely hopeful based on these new comments – especially given how letdown and bitterly disappointed we all were when the deal broke down in July.

The honest question is – will a legal battle even help solve anything? I hope so, but Edwards seems certain it’ll bring an end to this drawn out saga, one way or another.

After the horrors that 2020 has conjured up both on and off the pitch, it would be great to start the new year on a clean slate, with a new owner and a positive vision for the future.

  1. Has any reporter checked the validity of the post supposedly posted by the lawyer? A simple question to him would do it. After all there are only 3 answers he can give yes no or no comment

  2. Reporters have to file a news’ item on a daily basis, what do they do if there’s no news? Make up a story!! Any story, good or bad, regarding NUFC is bound to sell newspapers and increase the readership of the writer

  3. Idiot you either are or not an NUFC supporter – a supermarket sweep trolley pusher or someone who attends the games and supports the team.

  4. A fake tweet to give journalists a licence to post articles with no substance or citing.

    Sounds like an excuse to just droll out rubbish day in day out.

    A fake tweet? The link to the podcast Luke Edwards makes these comments on is literally in the article.
