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

The piece states that Staveley looked at buying other Premier League clubs, but ultimately her dream to own a part of Newcastle United was too hard to resist.

Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium has paid a deposit to Mike Ashley, and the deal is currently with the Premier League going through the relevant checks – if everything checks out, then Staveley and her group will be the new owners of the Toon.

Do you believe that the takeover will still happen?





This post has drawn the attention of many Toon fans.

What do we think?

George Caulkin stated that the buying side (Staveley’s consortium) remain ‘overwhelmingly positive’ that the deal will be approved though there is no timescale for an official announcement. (Live blog, 04/05/2020, 19:14)
