A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from George Caulkin that has comments from Amanda Staveley on Mike Ashley.

Starting with an easy one, against which club did Shelvey make his Newcastle debut?

These comments claim that she has no problem with Ashley and that they get on very well.

Staveley was speaking after the consortium she headed withdrew its bid to buy the Toon, citing the time it took for the Premier League to make a decision as one the reasons for its collapse.

This was followed up by an interview in The Athletic in which she squarely blamed the PL for the failure of the deal and insisted she has no problem with Ashley.

This development has pleased these fans.

Do you believe Staveley will come back?

No, this is it for her now

No, this is it for her now

Yes, she will be back

Yes, she will be back

Caulkin does confirm in another tweet that Ashley did try to re-negotiate the terms of the sale, but that this did not impact the deal.

Judging by Staveley’s comments, she does not blame Ashley and did hint that she won’t give up.

Ashley also confirmed that he remained 100% committed to the deal with Staveley, so could it be saved?

We will have to wait and see, but for now, other Toon fans have used this post to express their disappointment.

American businessman Henry Mauriss is still in the picture and is thought to believe he is in pole position to buy the Toon, but it remains to be seen if he is actually serious or not.

There is now nothing stopping him from him sorting a takeover of the Toon, so it will be interesting to see if he does.

However, we feel bad for the Toon fans, who are clearly gutted with what has happened to their club in recent days.
