Former Great Scottish Striker – Newcastle Takeover Would Be Fantastic

The news of yesterday about Newcastle was stunning.

There was hardly a whisper of a takeover and according to the Sun, signed contracts are now with the Premier League waiting for their approval.

Potential new owner Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed al-Nahyan seems to have moved quickly, efficiently and under the radar screen.

If this deal can be closed quickly, it will have been almost a perfect acquisition, and of course, our fans are ecstatic about what this all means for the future.

Rafa will be given money to spend, and he (and Newcastle) should be up with the big boys soon.

56-year-old Ally McCoist played for Rangers 451 times with 251 goals from 1983 to 1998, and he has also managed Rangers from 2011 through 2014.

Ally McCoist – Newcastle takeover would be fantastic

He is in demand now as a pundit and appears on talkSPORT often, and he has talked about the possible acquisition of Newcastle and he seems highly delighted if the deal goes through.

This is what Ally said on talkSPORT early this morning:

“It would be fantastic, wouldn’t it?.”

“There’s been serious unrest there for some time between the supporters and the owner, that’s been very very clear.”

“I just hope this time they do get their wish, Newcastle.”

“I really like the coach Rafael Benitez, he’s clearly very well respected and an excellent coach.”

“And the Newcastle supporters love him.”

“And I would love to see him get the opportunity to increase the talent within that squad, because I do think they could move up the table and do really, really well.”

Well said Ally – now we have to complete the takeover just as soon as possible.

And course it may take some time to finish high up in the league, but it won’t be for want of trying or even because we have a miserly owner who doesn’t like to spend the club’s money.

Things could be the polar opposite of what they have been like over the last 12 years with Mike Ashley.

We should have ambition and money available at the club. and of course an experienced world-class manager.

Comments welcome.

    Talk Sport, this morning, were saying this Sheik is no relation to the guy at man city and he’s got no money. The whole thing stinks of Bishop and I wouldn’t put it past hm to pay this ‘skint sheik’ to put this story out.

    Martoon @ 172. I had a thought along the same lines but in reverse. If the sale goes through and the “shills” don’t disappear into the ether will Toon22 apologise.
    I’m not a probie on the blog, and I have to admit that Toon22 has irritated the life out of me for some considerable time to the extent that I prepared a withering sarcastic tribute to him to post when the club was sold. Now that day seems to be looming, it all seems a bit spiteful and immature. Maybe the fact that he will have run out of ammo, will be enough retribution.
    Who knows,he may start joining in footy discussions, as long as he doesn’t start claiming credit for MA leaving.

    As you said, if one of the major sports outlets like Sky Sports is disagreeing with itself, then it’s no wonder the rest can’t make their minds up. That being the case, it looks as though Sky’s got Jib/Jane writing its bulletins – on secondment from Bishop!

    Sorry if this has been said on here already…

    Maybe… Just maybe the old, “We’re not related” line is to help the conflict of interest issue that may arise in the fit and proper persons test?

    Nudge nudge wink wink,,,
