NUFC Fans React To Reporter’s ‘Imminent’ Tweet


Sports correspondent John Richardson has issued the following tweet claiming that an official announcement on the Newcastle takeover is imminent.

Richardson is a NUFC fan and won news reporter of the year at the 2018 British Sports Journalism Awards while writing for the Sunday Mirror.

Needless to say, we are all exhausted with reports of when an announcement will be made. However, Richardson has remained mostly quiet on the takeover until today’s tweet.

The frustration of waiting for the confirmation of the takeover coupled with the excitement of it being close was reflected in the responses to Richardson’s tweet.

    Seems the next week announcement already came this week and imminent now means next Monday…or Friday, maybe we’ll get next weeks next week announcement this week too.

    I think Neil could have used all the replies on here as we are “toon fans” and our comments are pretty good compared to this Twitter shower!!!

    Sods Law – a definition, last week when many were extolling the virtues of Beef Goulash, I decided to plan to have it this week. Today’s the day, the hottest day of the year so far, I took it out the freezer yesterday without checking forecast and don’t have a plan B. Enjoy your salads everyone and Mediterranean fare, I’m having Goulash washed down with Vodka and elderflower tonic!

    I think he was commenting on the apparently incredibly flexible definition of the word ‘imminently’ rather than being malicious.

    Just to clear things up …

    As adjectives the difference between soon and imminent is that soon is occurring within a short time, or quickly while imminent is about to happen, occur, or take place very soon, especially of something which won’t last long.

    So rapid cooling of #Cans needed

    Does anybody have some chloroquine they can lend me? And some disinfectants (I prefer the Bleach Chewables if you have them)? I’m following the Trump method of preventing virus infection…..

    So Hatice Cengiz, is asking for a meeting with The Premier League! I do sympathise with her situation……

    However should the Premier League concur to her request they will put themselves in a very difficult position as it then opens the door for anyone of the supporters of Newcastle United FC to also request a meeting…… otherwise they would be putting themselves in a position of discrimination issues from every supporter of NUFC and other folk also.
    .
    However It’s my belief that they will politely dismiss her request.

    If you go into the toon today your in for a big surprise. If you go into the toon today youd better believe your eyes.
    Sports direct signs are gone, with Ashley and Charnley following on.

    She has nothing new to say, all just unproven accusations (according to our new owners) no crime has been committed by anyone involved in the buyout ( according to our new owners) so im sold

    Cant wait for Arsene to change the ffp rules to allow rich owners to bankroll their clubs , that will end the superiority of the likes of Man utd , Arsenal, even Chelski will be pushed out. It will allow Mike to spend as much of his money as he wants to make us successful …….cant wait to see that

    If it’s been approved by PL the it’s a matter of transferring funds, weekend in Saudi is Friday and saturday, eid is either Saturday or sunday…..essentially end of ramadan.

    Banks wont he operating during that time so early next week probably makes sense by the time transfers etc are done

    Our Toon,

    Ramadan or Saudi weekend won’t affect the takeover. The transfer of funds is from Staveley and the Reuben Brothers to Ashley in the first instance.

    Just our luck, approval given just before Banks both in Saudi and here go into lockdown for various holidays, as Out Toon says Eid in Saudi followed by Whitsun Bank Holiday here next Monday, could be middle of next week, unless they can sort it before the weekend……..

    You don’t need tonic with marmalade gin, ice is plenty.
