Plenty of Newcastle United fans are discussing Rob Draper’s claim that there is ‘no reason to worry’ about the proposed takeover at St. James’ Park.
Sharing his thoughts on his official Twitter page, the Mail on Sunday journalist tweeted that sources close to the Tyneside club have said that it is perfectly normal for two weeks to elapse since papers were filed with the Premier League.
However, the issue with beIN SPORTS clearly makes the acceptance of the takeover more complicated, as Sky and BT represent the top flight’s biggest partners. England’s first division had lobbied the United States to keep Saudi Arabia on a priority watchlist.
Judging by the responses of some of the Toon faithful, it seems as if everything is still up in the air, but there is a unified hope that the Saudi-led consortium, spearheaded by Amanda Staveley, will push through.
These Magpies discussed the claim, and the word ‘cans’, which has been used by Geordies to represent their excitement, has been used by some NUFC supporters as an appropriate reaction:
Are you a Newcastle United fan Because I hope this does go through so that we can celebrate I will watch all Newcastle United games of this season if it does happen.
