Fans Demand Statement From Newcastle (Ashley) On Status Of Acquisition



Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed al-Nahyan’ company – Bin Zayed Group – have for the second time issued a statement clarifying what they have done in trying to acquire Newcastle.

This is the update (clarification) and it seems they have done everything the Sun reported when they broke the news two days ago.

It seems they are calling out Mike Ashley since the club have said there is still some way to go with the takeover.

But signed forms of the agreed to offer of £350M have already been sent to the Premier League and proof of funds was sent to Mike Ashley’s lawyers in mid-April.

Mike Ashley – will he finally be leaving the Toon – hope so

So why are Newcastle not saying anything – or more accurately – why isn’t Mike Ashley on behalf of Mash Holdings saying something?

It’s Mike Ashley’s way to usually say nothing but he should respond to the latest statement.

Here’s what fans think – they want to hear from Ashley – and why are they being so quiet?

    GS, give it a rest man, no one is interested in your bullying. G2 is a good lad and funny too. At least compared to you he is.

    Jib: Rafa’s contract ends in a month.

    Why would we think about Rafa’s contract apart from Fatty wanting to renew it?

    Shearer got a few grand a week for his name to be on the bar, I’d rather invest it in the kids set up.

    I like 9, the number represents more than one man.

    If it is the day we all start to believe quite fitting that it is the 50th anniversary of another momentous day in our history – our First leg victory in Fairs Cup Final 3-0 50 years ago tonight – last proper silverware we won

    Rafa and team should be busy in consolidating a new list of transfer targets, talking with agents to verify their players’ availability and ask price, etc.

    A nightmare to redo everything they’ve prepared in the last half year, with the budget changing from 10 to 20 millions to 100 to 200 millions!!

    G2 hasn’t been on Blog and you started day with some reasonable football comments but inexplicably have renewed your feud for no apparent reason other than seemingly your own amusement.

    It’s looking like being a great day for us all – can’t you leave all this behind for those who just want to revel in a shared experience which doesn’t happen often – last when Rafa signed probably.

    G2 isn’t my cup of tea but is harmless, has his fans on here, is by no means as annoying as many others and has been around years as a genuine fan – cut him some slack if you are indeed just one of us 🙂

    Toon22 still banging on. Get a life. Just because you’re 100% wrong, doesn’t make you a bad person, but persisting in your one-eyed view in the face of what is clearly blatant evidence to contradict said view, isn’t a clever look.

    Just as a point of interest:

    “The proof of funds statement was forwarded to Mike Ashley’s lawyers on April 17 2019. : https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11678/11730876/sheikh-khaled-says-agreed-terms-for-newcastle-takeover-sent-to-premier-league

    So where have all the mis direction calls been made from, was it TFCB again trying to scuttle the deal? Its just like him. Oh to have and honest and genuine owner. We do not want to have stupid money spent on players, just what Rafa thinks will improve the team and on his terms as he knows what he is planning but must have hte pieces to make it work. Up to now he has had to deal with what he has been given, and made a great job of it, but hopefully now we will see what he can really do……if the take over does happen.

    One more thing re transfers, as the dynamic would change quite dramatically if the club is taken over maybe Rafa will have to do a lot more with his contacts as the cost gap will have increased somewhat. Hopefully no more bargain basement and embarrassing approaches for players bringing shame on the club.

    Even if the sale comes off, I’m not going to get carried away by this. I just hope Rafa is given time to rebuild the club from the bottom up. It would be nice to be run like a Premier League football club.
