Soooooo looks like this is real lol.
Offer accepted and both parties working on the details.
£350m... What do the fans think?
Will instantly kms when this deal inevitably falls through.
Is this the same guy that flies into Newcastle on his private plane every year to go grouse hunting?
Why oh why would you want this lot to own your football club.
Email from the BZG group.
"In response to the numerous reports in the world media this morning, we would like to comment as follows, we can confirm that representatives of His Highness Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nahyan are in discussions with Mike Ashley and his team, about the proposed acquisition of Newcastle United Football Club.
"We view it as an honor to have the opportunity to build on the strong support, history and tradition of the club.
"We have agreed terms and are working hard to complete the transaction at the earliest opportunity."
I couldn't think of anything worse than having some oil arab takeover a club.... and that's saying something when they have Mike Ashley as the alternative.
So they will end up with billions pumped into it like city and avoid ffp somehow then
Assuming they do get taken over, keep Rafa on and give him the financial backing to take Newcastle forward, they'll be a very dangerous team in a couple of seasons.
Another Man City incoming then?
I'll believe it when I see it
Truthfully I'd love Man City type investment, however in reality 99% of Newcastle fans would be over the moon with a small dose of ambition. That's all Rafa wants and needs; progress.
My good friend is a Newcastle fan and is overjoyed but not counting his chicken's yet. Man City were about the same type of team as Newcastle ~10 years ago but after the oil money look at them now. He's hoping the same thing.
we can only but hope
Can't wait to wake up in the morning to this has all been a scam and takeover is off.
Raffa walks and Pardew is returning to the club.
Life as a Newcastle supporter.
Pards is too busy dancing. John Carver FTW!
Maybe but if any fans deserve better this lot do
Wanted more for Newcastle and Rafa but not this, rancid
I cant see another Man City scenario happening again, FFP would stop it. But at least they can spend money and move forward Rafa has done a great job
Also I do not believe a word of it until it happens, it will most likely be another excuse for Ashley not to spend again this summer.
