Takeover – Potential Buyers Unlikely To Be Concerned About This


There’s a report in the Chronicle today that a few potential buyers are being put off Newcastle because of the threat of relegation.

We had an article out just over a week ago, in which we said the best time to buy Newcastle would be before the end of this year.

That was because by then Newcastle could be deep in relegation trouble and fighting for our very survival in the Premier League (again).

But that’s not the case at the moment.

In fact, there are even some positive signs with Newcastle having beaten both Tottenham and Manchester United this season – we lost all four of those games last season.

And after 8 games last year we had 2 points, so it’s a better start than last season.

PosTeamGamesGDPoints
12Southampton27-1434
13Crystal Palace27-833
14Newcastle27-1731
15Brighton27-728
16Bournemouth27-1726
17Aston Villa27-1825

Last season we lost the 9th game 1-0 at home to Brighton – so we had 2 points after 9 games and 3 points after 10 games.

Joseph DaGrosa – interested in  buying Newcastle with Peter Kenyon

And if a group really does want to buy Newcastle and have the money, then now’s the time to bid and potentially do the deal.

There are still 30 games left in the season with the possibility that both Longstaff brothers could become star players this season in the Newcastle engine room.

New owners would be able to fund the January transfer window so the squad could be improved, and they would have no qualms about dismissing manager Steve Bruce if we keep losing too many games.

They will feel no particular loyalty to him, whereas  Ashley and Charnley do – because they hired him to replace Rafa Benitez – to the dismay of Newcastle fans.

So we very much doubt any group is put off by a possible relegation this season – not yet anyway.

That becomes more of an issue when January rolls around if we are fighting relegation when there are a lot fewer games to play.

After New Years Day, when hopefully we can beat Leicester City at home, we have just 16 league games to play this season.

If a group is really interested in acquiring Newcastle, they need to bid, and if that doesn’t happen, it could simply be that groups just don’t have the money Ashley wants for the club.

And we’re still not convinced that Mike Ashley wants to sell the club.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

On a personal note – my wife Madeline (originally from Longbenton) and I have just celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary – and they said it wouldn’t last.

    Where’s all the money gone,look at the net spend for 13 years,it’s peanuts.No way will the parasite sell the club,he gets a kick out of it now because he’s a rat with no morals.Look no further than Shirebrook and his other disgusting dealings with companies he gets his grubby hands on.Its only a matter of time before someone gives him a hiding either through the courts or otherwise.
