Nigerian Consortium Close To Major Announcement


There is news tonight that Chris Nathaniel and the Nigerian Consortium, who say they have the money to buy Newcastle United, are close to making a strategic statement by the weekend, on their goal of buying Newcastle United.

Hopefully this will come as good news to the ever faithful Newcastle fans, having seen the club in dire straights during the last two weeks or so.

Nathaniel, who is chief executive of NVA management, has declared interest from a group of Nigerian entrepreneurs he is working with.

Nathaniel said today:

“It is a very serious offer, they are very serious business people and passionate football fans,” “We are still at the early stages. Hopefully in the next 48 hours we will be in a position to make a statement and take the situation further.”

“Newcastle should be achieving more than they are. There is long-term potential at the club, there is a lot wrong at the club [at the moment, but they are determined to put that right by getting the right people in and using the right structure.”

The consortium are aware of the standing Kevin Keegan has among Newcastle supporters after his departure that led to the club being up for sale.

Nathaniel added.

“Kevin is a hero on Tyneside, he’d be a great choice but I can’t say too much,”

Comments welcome.

    i hate how so many people are talking about relegation it is too too early

    … and these guys seem to be serious about buying our club and are confident about it because they would be denying it by now before the rumours got out of hand

    THIS IS JUST UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. WE WOULD BE OUT OF THIS MES AND SOLD IF SHLEY WASNT ASKING FRICKIN 400 MILLION POUNDS FOR THE CLUB. NO WONDER IT’S TAKING SO LONG. HE IS TO BLAME FOR EVERY LOSS INCLUDING TONIGHT.

    He’s a Southerner so I’d bet he has a strong hatred of the club and the fans, but really we can’t go on with Houghton, he’s not up to it.

    Hi Southern Geordie that is a belter i seen it at the weekend after a smoke and it was even funnier. I am hopeing there is some truth in this story as i cant see us turning it round if something doesnt happen real soon and i think if these one’s take over and reapoint KK the players would respond real well. and i think it would be the best thing for the club in the short term

    Taylor is a pompous overrated player….he’s garbage….he admitted himself the other day with his “i did that as a kid”…..we are sinking so fast, i hate it…whatever is needed, do it…or a lot of us will be left with an aching heart

    The saddest thing about today was Tottenham were their for the taking tonigh. Any half decent side would have picked them to bits in the first half, they basically gave us the ball every other pass. Yet we still couldn’t create anything decent. Geremi, Duff, Taylor are all SHITE and need to be moved on. Butt needs to be dropped to the bench and only used in certain situations and our new midfield should be

    – N’Zogbia – Barton – Guthrie – Jonas

    Did no one else notice how bad Butt and Colo were tonight ??

    Butt was the one that gave spurs possession with which to score the first goal, his passing was pathetic tonight. Colo should have been marking pavlyu also for the goal they scored, taylor was just laughable.

    Only Nzogbia & Martins really performed.

    We need to start with Xisco, Owen & martins ALL upfront in future, we looked far more dangerous then. The 3 pronged attack is what saved us last year, we’re to defensive recently it doesnt work!

    I have received 7 texts taunting me so far, 4 were ridiculing Taylor. He causes this club so much embarrassment it is unreal.

    We can only hope..There’s only one thing we can do right now though..

    Ár nAthair, atá ar neamh
    Go naofar d’ainm.
    Go dtagaidh do ríocht.
    Go ndéantar do thoil ar an talamh,
    mar dhéantar ar neamh
    Ár n-arán laethúil tabhair dúinn inniu,
    agus maith dúinn ár bhfiacha,
    mar mhaithimid dár bhféichiúnaithe féin.Agus ná lig sinn i gcathú,
    Ach saor sinn ó olc.
    Óir is leatsa an Ríocht
    agus an Chumhacht
    agus an Ghlóir,
    tré shaol na saol.

    ..(Our father who worked in heaven..)

    Out of our 40 registered first team players, I’d only be opposed to 15 of them not leaving!

    JonnyToon – You are wrong about Colo having to mark Pavlyuchenko.

    Colo cant mark 2 players at once and considering Taylor was nowhere to be seen Colo marked Taylor’s man.

    Taylor was at fault for both goals, he is shockingly bad!
