Fans of Newcastle have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which recounts several news stories regarding interest in buying the club.

The thread recounts many of the various reports of interest in a takeover deal for Newcastle United, including a story from 2008 which reported that Nigerian tycoons were ready to bid for the club, as well as a South African bid of between £280 million and £300 million, plus many, many more.

To kick things off, which season is this kit from?

In reaction to the tweets, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the matter, with many commenting on how brilliant the accumulation of all the takeover stories is, while others have taken aim at Mike Ashley, who they believe to have fictionalised many of the stories.

Are you confident the takeover will be completed?

Yes

Yes

No

No

What do we think?

While many of the Newcastle fans appear to think that a lot of the takeover stories within the thread were fictionalised by Mike Ashley and his team at Newcastle, it would appear that the ongoing takeover is the real deal.

However, there have been no recent updates from the Premier League as to whether or not they have given the deal approval, so fans of the club will have to wait a little while longer to see whether or not their wish of removing Ashley from their club is granted.
