The Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are all making the same joke, it seems.
Indeed, with talk of a takeover on Toon tounges right now, the punters propping up our bar are hopeful they will soon see the end of the Mike Ashley era as Amanda Staveley and her PCP backers reportedly weigh up another offer to take control of the Magpies.
If you’re going to put your hand in your pocket to back a coupon this weekend, hold fire until you’ve seen our recommended Accys! Last week, our Premier League outright win treble with LeoVegas paid out—so we’re having another crack with Tottenham, Newcastle and Palace. We’ve also got a very enticing fourfold from the Championship and League One. Take a look and let us know how you’re placing your money this weekend!
Well, today, those clad in black and white who frequent in their droves have all been joking that Staveley should try and wrap up a deal TODAY. It is Black Friday, after all.
With sales all over the internet, Geordies have been urging the lady who will hopefully finally end the Sports Direct era on Tyneside to make a move for the club, in line with all the other deals flying around the web. Having said that, here’s a closer look at the jokes made on Twitter today.

It's Black Friday, surely Mike Ashley can sell for £300 million today? #NUFC

Has anyone made a Black Friday Staveley bid joke yet because I’m tempted to.
