Former England international goalkeeper Paul Robinson has claimed to Football Insider that fans of Newcastle United are “fed up” with all of the talk of a prospective takeover at St. James’ Park.
Indeed, this comes after news emerged that the Bellagraph Nova (BN) Group, which was co-founded by businesswoman Evangeline Shen and Singaporean cousins Nelson and Terence Loh, and brought to the table by former Magpies striker Michael Chopra, had officially launched their own bid worth £280m in an attempt to buy out Mike Ashley in the northeast.
Will the BN Group be successful in their Newcastle takeover bid?
There have even been some rather surprising links to potential arrivals at the Toon should their takeover bid be successful, such as Newcastle legend Alan Shearer possibly taking over from Steve Bruce in the managerial hot-seat, as well as the quite remarkable signing of Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo should their deal get over the line.
However, Robinson has suggested that the constant rumours surrounding the Tyneside club are causing the supporters to grow tiresome:
“I think the Geordies are fed up of takeover talk.
“It’s been going on for so many years now. Is this going to happen? Is that going to happen? Are we going to get that money? I think the speculation around that club, you can only deal in fact now.
“They’ve been letdown so many times with the regard to the sale of the club and money coming into the club.”
Indeed, the whole takeover saga has been going on for months now, so perhaps the fans would just like to see it come to a conclusion one way or another.
Whether Newcastle get taken over by the BN Group, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabian (KSA) consortium or even American businessman Henry Mauriss may not matter to the supporters anymore, as long as they can see light at the end of the tunnel.
Nevertheless, Robinson claims that they are now “fed up” of it all, and will surely want the whole saga to end sooner rather than later.
