Plenty of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to react to the sighting of Newcastle part-owner Jamie Reuben ahead of the match against Spurs today.
The new Newcastle stakeholder took to Twitter to upload a picture of himself and another contact with the Tyne as a backdrop – including the Tyne Bridge – before captioning the post with two zebra emojis in a nod to his newly-acquired club.
Where will Newcastle United finish in the Premier League this season?
Many Newcastle fans were ecstatic as they took to social media to respond to the post, welcoming the new owner as part of the wider consortium looking to usher in a new era of change on Tyneside.
What have some Newcastle fans been saying?
“Love you, who’s the other guy?”
“Welcome to the madhouse ! Enjoy the black and white ride”
“Welcome to Newcastle… wait until you feel the atmosphere”
“Drinking in the pre-match atmosphere just hope the football doesn’t disappoint tomorrow as everything else around it will be a 10 out of 10. A big welcome to Newcastle to Jamie”
“You’re going to love tomorrow. You have woken up a sleeping giant”
With tycoon Mike Ashley ousted from the ownership hotseat, many fans are salivating at the prospect of a change.
Reuben is being embraced by some fans just as he is embracing the club, city and wider culture at Newcastle.
