Newcastle fans are taking to Twitter and expressing their thoughts as it seems the sale of Newcastle United could happen with Amanda Staveley – on behalf of Middle East investors – is reported about to launch a formal bid.
That will be a bid that shows she is serious and expected to be around £300M.
But she needs to look at the financial records first to ensure all is well financially with Newcastle.
Some fans are scared in case we turn into a Chelsea or Manchester City where it’s all about money, and that’s it – and the fans seem spoiled.
But it will be different with Newcastle – the club is one of the best supported in the world – and with Rafa at the helm, there will be genuine support and joy as the Newcastle team becomes better and better.
That’s a prediction.
And we’ll have the best flags in England too!
Rafa Benitez – Newcastle’s world-class manager
Here are some typical tweets for the Geordie fans.
If Mike Ashley has been trying to sell #nufc for a while he might have due diligence information ready to go, so it might happen fast.

I love the escalating #nufc takeover stories on here, by next week the deal will be ‘done’ & Rafa will have a ‘kitty of £5bn for transfers’

I’m excited but skeptical about the potential takeover of #NUFC. Are we about to see Man City money? I have no idea what to expect.

I realise that if #NUFC become a billionaire-owned ‘money club’ it will make me look a total hypocrite given my opinions on Chelsea/City…

Can’t contain my excitement at the thought of a takeover ? Like a kid at Christmas! #NUFC

With even just average investment from new owners #NUFC under Rafa Benitez could be literally anything.
