Newcastle fans on Twitter just don’t believe Pete Graves’ claims on takeover

Newcastle fans have been suffering for years under Mike Ashley so you can’t blame them for getting excited over even the slimmest hopes of a takeover. Over the last month, those hopes have been up and down, and now, as it looked like the rumours were over and the takeover was dead, Pete Graves of Sky Sports News has claimed it’s not over yet.

The trustworthy journalist who has won over the Magpies with his well-informed news and following of the club down the years should be enough for the supporters to get back into thinking that they can still escape Mike Ashley’s tyranny soon, but this time around the Geordies are refusing to get their hopes up, as they fear that they’ll just be left disappointed in the end.

For a lot of supporters, the fact that a takeover has been close two or three times now over the last few years is making it seem more and more like a clever ploy by Mike Ashley to douse the protests being up against him. However, any solid news of a takeover, or a takeover itself, would be like having Christmas all over again for the suffering Newcastle fans.

The Geordies have little faith in a takeover happening now, and will only believe it when they can see it.
