The Singapore Profitable Group have today confirmed officially their interest in acquiring Newcastle United – so yesterday’s report in the Evening Chronicle was indeed accurate – even though it still seems too true to believe – it’s true!
This is what the Profitable Group put on their web site today, June 10th.
The Profitable Group can confirm that it has expressed an initial interest in acquiring Newcastle United. A preliminary discussion with the representatives appointed to handle the sale of the club has been held.
But contrary to some reports no direct talks have been held with either the Owner, Mike Ashley, or the Chairman, Derek Lambias.
The Group consider the leaking of The Group’s interest in this matter unfortunate, and as supporters of Newcastle United seek only to serve in the best interests of the club, the fans and the local community.
The Group will not be making any further comment at the present time.
So it certainly seems like things are hotting up with Freddy Shepherd said to be meeting in London today with Keith Harris, as Freddy is fronting another bid with funds being provided from the Middle East, or so the reports suggest.
The Evening Chronicle also reported that on Monday afternoon, when Shearer returned from Portugal, Freddy and Alan huddled in Jesmond for secret talks, so it’s obvious now that at least two groups want Alan as manager.
What we need now is for some arrangement whereby Alan can start managing the club now, and start doing some real work for next season, such as trying to convince Seb Bassong that his future lies on Tyneside.
Alan could also start recruiting some of the targets he laid out for Mike Ashley two weeks ago, and start bringing in some of the new players who will form the foundation for our squad next season.
We have to believe they will have the club at heart, unlike a certain squad we will not even mention.
