A whole host of Newcastle United fans are very annoyed and bored on Twitter following the latest takeover claim.
Newcastle have been embroiled in a potential takeover for well over a year now which originally saw PCP Capital Partners lead a bid to take the club off of Mike Ashley’s hands after 14 years of owning the Tyneside club.
Can you see the proposed takeover happening?
In 2020, Ashley thought he had finally been able to sell the club when he accepted a bid from the consortium, however, the potential party backed out. Given how long this process has gone on, Newcastle fans are now understandably frustrated and fed up with all the updates and claims – and that is no different for the latest claim from 90min, which claims Ashley is ‘confident’ a deal will get done.
A lot of Newcastle fans have reacted angrily on Twitter to the latest takeover claim.
What have these Newcastle fans been saying?
“Genuinely bored of this now”
“Excuses in already for no investment in Jan… #NUFC“
“This makes me feel even more confident that this takeover isn’t happening. Heard it all before. Would love to be proven wrong. #NUFC“
“Both him and the consortium have been confident throughout yet here we are. I will believe cut when I see it. The whole thing is tedious now”
“Here we go again”
What most Newcastle fans are now waiting for and pinning their last hopes on is the club’s arbitration case, which is set to take place in the new year, and this should determine if the Premier League acted properly when conducting the owners’ and directors’ tests during Newcastle’s potential takeover.
In the summer transfer window, the Magpies only managed to bring in one first-team player in the form of Joe Willock, and that may have been a sign of Ashley wanting to hold back on outlandish spending in case he is no longer the owner of Newcastle for much longer.
