Amanda Staveley’s husband Mehrdad Ghodoussi has chosen an interesting way to relay a message to Newcastle fans that the consortium is not giving up hope on Newcastle just yet.
Here is the cryptic message he has just tweeted with the #nufctakeover hashtag.

This comes on the heels of Martin Samuel’s story in the Mail in which the journalist attempts to connect some disparate dots with the Portsmouth takeover from a decade ago.
However, Samuel also claimed that the Premier League offered arbitration but the Saudi balked and ultimately pulled the plug on the deal. He ultimately lay much of the blame for the failed deal on the consortium.
We’re not sure if Ghoudoussi’s tweet has anything to do with Samuel’s article, is a sign of some positive movement, or just a message to fans that, at least he and Amanda, are still committed to reviving the deal.
The fans are still pushing the league to issue a statement. To date, the petition for an independent review of the takeover is closing in on 110,000 signatures.
All the fans can do is continue to apply pressure through the appropriate avenues and hope for the best. This tweet from Ghoudoussi will give many fans a lift despite its quirky delivery.
Newcastle fans responded to the tweet in kind, with some levity of their own.
Be honest was that song choice your pick or Amanda’s ? Either way the message has been received ?? pic.twitter.com/ZqJ7KWF3tR
