“Pathetic”, “Complete joke”, “Ridiculous” – Loads of Newcastle fans react over takeover news

Newcastle United fans are probably sick of hearing the same old things – will it happen? won’t it happen? The latest news is that the takeover is expected to go into next week at the very least.

The Times claim that the Premier League are continuing to work through a 350-page submission from the Magpies’ prospective owners and that rival teams have expressed their concerns.

It means this will all rumble on into a sixth week, leaving the St James’ Park faithful waiting even longer.
