However, the sighting of the Prince’s superyacht on English shores, as reported by the Daily Mail, has given some Newcastle fans hope that an agreement can still be reached, even if most weren’t getting carried away.
“Does it fit under the Tyne bridge is the real question.”
“Be better when it’s anchored off tynemouth.”
“he should take for a spin up the Tyne”
“Forget plane watch, it’s all about #yachtwatch”
“on a megabus to Newcastle before a signing session at the quayside spoons”
“Could this be significant?”
Indeed, given the takeover failures in the past, it’s understandable why most supporters are remaining calm following this latest development, and his boat simply being on English shores may mean nothing.
