We have to believe that the deadlock at Newcastle will be broken this weekend with Mike Ashley announcing he has taken the club off the market.
Joe Kinnear – is he preparing to take over again at Newcastle?
We understand that David O’Leary has been approached by Managing Director Derek Llambias to be the new manager, if that were to happen, but there are signs that David may not even want the job.
We think that Joe Kinnear would be second choice and even first choice, had he been fit enough to take over immediately.
But there are rumblings in the press as the betting odds on Joe were being cut yesterday, even though it is only a week since he said he would not be fit enough to be a manager until around October.
But we have to think even Mike Ashley knows right now that the Newcastle club are a complete joke, the way he has handled the sale this summer.
The sooner he tries to bring some stability to the club the better it will be for eveyone concerned.
We’re still hoping that a deal can be agreed with Barry Moat, but the longer this goes on the less chance there seems of that happening.
The odds are now on this man staying as owner, after he has wasted 12 weeks this summer, and had the Newcastle club in a straight jacket, and that has to be shocking news for Newcastle fans everywhere.
When will be the next time he does this and puts the Newcastle club up for sale again and starts this nonsense all over again?
