Do you think the piracy issues will prevent the takeover being concluded?





While some have denounced the report as being a credible update on proceedings, others were considerably downbeat following the latest talk of developments regarding the takeover saga.

Newcastle United fans may be happy to put the takeover talk to one side this coming weekend, when the Magpies resume their Premier League campaign with a home fixture versus Sheffield United at St. James’ Park, scheduled to take place on Sunday.
