Newcastle fans still have little faith in Ashley sale despite promising reports

Newcastle fans have been going through hell for a long time with Mike Ashley’s ownership of their club. However, recent reports claim that his reign could soon be over and Craig Hope of The Daily Mail has provided an update on the on-going sale, claiming that the 54-year-old’s recent comments in a live interview about the sale could scupper the deal as two parties have reported interested.

These reports of Ashley looking to sell the club before December 31st would be incredibly promising and would have the Magpies in such a good frame of mind for the season if they hadn’t been here before. It seems that the Sports Direct owner waits for the opportunity to fabricate these reports as a way of getting out of spending any of the club’s money in the transfer window, and with just four weeks until the January window opens, Ashley is right on time.

If these stories turn out to be true and Ashley does sell the club, the fans will be over the moon. One of the reported owners is Atlanta United’s American billionaire owner and the idea of being owned by a businessman who’s been investing heavily in his other sporting franchises is a very exciting prospect for the Geordies, although until they see it, the fans simply refuse to believe it.

The Geordies would do anything to have Ashley sell the club, however, none of them have faith in the sale going through.
