Since our initial article on the reaction to Thursday’s takeover was incomplete, here are some more reactions from some current and former Magpies.
Here is Freddie Woodman’s tweet from the day after the announcement. Woodman made his Premier League debut in our first match of the season against West Ham at St. James’ Park. Freddie has tweeted part of the interview he did after that match along with a message to the fans.
This club has always been massive, here’s to a new chapter ??
So happy for the fans, you deserve this ??
