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.

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.

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.

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

This.

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.
