Further to what I said last night, Sky sources are suggesting that former Chelsea and Man United chief executive Peter Kenyon is getting a consortium together to buy out Ashley. We wait, we see and we wonder...…………………………………………….. and pray that something good will come of it.
Will Ashley want too much? Plus nowadays to own a Premier League club you need Billionaires, Millionaires aren't wealthy enough to pump the money in to run clubs, Has Kenyon and Co got those resources? But with the barcodes Ashley needs to bigger off

Word is £300 million plus assurances that whoever has the funding capable of doing what he can't...………………………………….. take the club forward. Kenyon has the ability to get backing from those with plenty of money in The City apparently.

If this consortium have the funds anyone but Ashley will be welcome. Must admit money from the City is risky, They won't be football people but faceless business investors who will demand some sort of return and that return will depend if Newcastle are a Premiership club, If they get relegated and unlike last time they don't make a instant return then the City boys will get the jitters and pull their investment

Newcastle fans will still find a reason to whine and protest. Bullitt, Robson, Roeder, Pardew, Souness, Alladyce, Ashley have all had to put up with their uneducated crap.

Terrible football club with pathetic supporters. Always makes me laugh when you hear the 'best fans in the country' just coz 45-50k turn up every week and whine and boo their own.

Never been a big club and never will.

Talk about uneducated crap. Bobby Robson was treated like a God. Souness never really had any problems. Guillits problems were self made by leaving out players like Shearer and Ferguson and then getting beat by Sunderland. Pardew was unfortunate because of guilt by association to the Cockney Mafia but I'd suggest even then I'd say he won the support round. Allardyce is $4!t and deserved everything he got and if you can't see Ashley is the club into the ground then you're either blind or just plain stupid .

Geordies turned on Robson and got him sacked. That's a fact. Plenty of articles online dating back to when he was getting booed and how hurt he was by it all.

The point is they think they are massive club with a god given right to be in the big time. They are a second rate club that have barely won anything and have the worst fans in the country. Only a matter of time before they jump on Rafa and have some pathetic protest.

Are you Credy in disguise? There's very little difference between Newcastle and Man Citeh prior to Sheik Mansour taking over and now look at Citeh. The biggest difference is Citeh are still the second club in their City whereas Newcastle are the only club in theirs. Put somebody like Mansour behind Rafa and the potential is massive.

You go me on the alarm clock
Have to agree that Newcastle is arguably the best placed PL club to really launch a push with the right ownership and backing. Every other club has an immediate local rival in terms of fan base - Liverpool/Everton, Man U/Man City, Villa/Birmingham/WBA, London speaks for itself. Leeds could potentially make similar claims, but their ownership history is arguably even more "basket case" than Newcastle.

Admittedly in modern football, local fan base is virtually irrelevant to a top flight football club, but I prefer to determine a "big club" in terms of what the football club means to the local community, rather than its EBITDA.

Loving the free flowing entertaining football at S
Big one at the top this weekend with Liverpool & City facing each other...
Well that was a snoozer!.....

Liverpool looking superb defensively mind - Van Djik is a rolls Royce of a centre half and worth every penny so far....no goal conceded at home in 9 league games first team to achieve that since 1994 & only 3 conceded in th PL this season compared to pre Van Djik 13 at at the same stage last season
