A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from Luke Edwards as he discussed his view on the proposed takeover of Newcastle.

Nice easy one to start off with, which club did Newcastle United sign Shearer from in 1996?

The Daily Telegraph reporter claimed that this was the 13th week that someone had said the takeover would be announced ‘this week’ and that the whole thing was ridiculous now.

He also followed up with another tweet that stated how long should people keep continuing to trust the sources who keep claiming that the deal will be done and that he was now suspicious.

This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who are not happy.

Do you agree with Edwards?

No

No

Yes

The deal for Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium to take Newcastle from Mike Ashley was agreed in April, and a deposit was paid to Ashley.

However, since then, nothing has happened despite suggestions that last week the Premier League were going to reach a decision.

The reason for this was because Saudi Arabia had announced a crackdown on piracy, and the UK government had apparently swayed the PL to accept the takeover.

However, nothing happened, and it seems to have made Edwards sceptical of takeover talk, and these Toon fans agree with him.

Steve Bruce’s side crashed out of the FA Cup on Sunday to Manchester City, and after the match, Bruce pleaded for clarity from the Premier League as he feels the current situation is not helping anyone.

Considering the deal was agreed with Ashley in April, you would think that by the end of June the Premier League might have decided.

Hopefully, this saga does not have much longer to run, and the Premier League will soon rule on this takeover.
