Delighted Fans Swarm To Twitter – Excellent News On Takeover And Transfer Funds


Newcastle fans are returning from work with the news that Amanda Staveley has increased her offer to £300M – which is what Mike Ashley wanted.

The deal is close with both parties wanting to do the deal at £300M.

Mike Ashley will also provide £30M to Rafa Benitez next month so he can bring in the reinforcements he needs to ensure we are a Premier League club by May.

And we expect Rafa to be given a long-term deal once Ms. Staveley takes over towards the end of January.

We need a win tonight and that will be the icing on the cake.

This is the news we all wanted to hear – assuming the reports are accurate and the deal will now go through.

Howay The Lads!!

Mike Ashley out – welcome Ms. Staveley

This is a great idea – see next tweet

    The press just keep repeating that a deal is closer, no one is saying the word done and no one really appears to have any news on who is in this consortium, better not be Guy Incognito (MA with a moustache on)

    We should all acknowledge that Ashley has saved this club financially and we owe him our gratitude. I will always remember the Ashley era with fondness.

    Everyone getting excited? Has Staveley got much money? Ambition? Does anyone know anything about her to justify excitement? She might have smaller pockets than Ashley? Just saying.

    I think Diame and Shelvey will come into midfield for Everton. If Aaron Lennon plays for Everton, it would be good to give Rolando Aarons some game time up against Lennon. The last time those two clashed Lennon really did a number on Aarons, it looked like it knocked Aarons’ confidence at the time. It would be apt for Aarons to settle that old score, and perhaps put himself in contention for a starting place.

    Spot on. Press are talking about 30 million in January. Thats not very much. Half a Citeh fullback.
    But anything is better than Mashers. Even if she has less cash, I could never work out why she was haggling over 50 million to buy the club and was prepared (allegedly) to spend hundreds of millions on players. I do not think we will see a Citeh type spend but anything is better than the fat controller. Do not expect us to challenge for the league. A Cup is more realistic.+

    There’s a few journos have mentioned
    that Rafa likes Aarons a lot , so regardless
    of what the blog plugs say , his lack of
    playing time has nothing to do with favouritism

    Unfortunately
    Jespers wife has an audition
    for Danish “strictly” so he has
    to watch the bairns
    Don’t worry though
    He may not see the game
    but he’ll have lots to say
    about it

    Jib, yes, if Atsu was still out injured, I was expecting Aarons to displace Murphy quite soon anyway. With Ritchie looking like he needs rested, there is quite likely going to be changes on the flank tonight.

    Fans need to really back the team tonight, this group needs every ounce of motivation to win today, we badly need to get out of this situation we find ourselves in otherwise we will find ourselves in a rut we can’t escape, we need these 3 points tonight so every fan that attends the game and reads this sing your hearts out and roar the lads on!!

    Think Rafa will go back to the system he started the season with and basically the same side from the Championship. Not my preferred formation and has its difficulties, but he may want to try out the players who have the most experience of playing together and their more established tactics.

    ————–Gayle
    ——Atsu–Perez–Ritchie
    ——-Shelvey—Hayden
    Manq–Clarke–Lascelles–Yedlin
    —————Darlow
