A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to a mysterious post from Michael Chopra on Twitter on Monday evening.

To get things started a rather easy one. Who scored Newcastle's first league goal of the season?

This cryptic post simply said ‘Excited’, followed by some black and white circles. It follows on from another tweet he released last week that told Toon fans to ‘get the cans from the bin and put them back in the fridge’.

That had come less than a week after Newcastle’s proposed takeover by Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium fell through as the group withdrew their offer.

Judging by some of the replies to his previous tweet, many Toon fans weren’t happy, and they weren’t too pleased about this latest one, either.

Are you annoyed by this tweet from Chopra?

Yes, no need for it

No, he must know something

Since the proposed takeover collapsed, Mike Ashley, via Lee Charnley, stated that he is ‘100% committed’ to the deal, and he is also said to be readying legal action and ‘personally trying to resolve the situation’.

So, it is pretty clear that Ashley wants to sell and wants out now, and Mehrdad Ghodoussi, husband of Staveley, claimed that all members of the consortium would still do a deal if the Premier League said it was going to accept it.

So, there seems to be a group willing to buy the club as well as a willing seller, but the Premier League stands between the deal happening.

The Premier League took so long to make a decision that the group withdrew, and since then, there has been no word from the PL, but the pressure is building – with MPs, including the PM Boris Johnson, asking the PL for an explanation on what happened.

This post continued to draw Toon fans, who mocked the former Newcastle striker.

So, Chopra’s tweet is rather cryptic, but considering the buyers and Ashley still seem determined in this deal, maybe nothing should be ruled out just yet.
