Newcastle fans on Twitter aren’t happy with Keith Downie’s takeover update

This takeover stuff is going to roll on for a long time, isn’t it? For the Geordies, all that matters is that Rafa Benitez stays at the club and Mike Ashley eventually leaves. Until that happens, the mass frustrations will continue, and as the updates continue to come in and the story changes the supporters aren’t happy.

The latest twist in the story is that despite reports that claim Sheikh Khaled, the man rumoured to be splurging £350 million on NUFC, is the cousin or half-brother of Manchester City Sheikh Mansour, the claims are false. Keith Downie is the reporter to bring us the information, and it’s just made things even hazier surrounding the takeover as the fans wait for evidence that they might be rid of Ashley.

As things stand, Mike Ashley is in charge and remains in charge, yet if Sheikh Khaled can convince him to sell up then the money will surely flow freely out of the famous Northeast club. It’s what all of the supporters want, but the longer it drones on, and it hasn’t been going on for long at all yet, the more sceptical the fans are of any sort of agreement ever being made between Ashley and Khaled.

The Magpies hate the idea of this takeover falling through or not going ahead and will be desperate for news to filter through that Ashley has sold their beloved club.
