Does this mean he'll make the toon shirts more expensive in Sports World, or stop selling the mackems shirts altogether?! ;)
Nothing will change under Fat Cashley.

as much as freddy says he wont sell i'm sure if he was to lose his control over the club he would take the money and run.

Surely at the very least this should mean notable extra investment in the club (ie playing staff)?

" Greggs owners now fear a take over bid from Newcastle Chariman Freddy Shepherd, they expect him to feel the need to be comfort eating in the very near future"

This is possibly the best Newcastle United related news I've heard in ages. An English Billionaire wants our club and has just bought nearly half of it.

I think I need to go and have a lie down!

Bog standard thing to say when you're holding out for a good price "I won't sell!"  He's hardly going to say "I'm more than happy to sell..."  and then drive a hard bargain with the buyer.

How will this affect our plans though? I'm pretty sure Allardyce would have planned on spending x amount of money. It'll also affect whatever transfers we have on the iron atm, and how will this affect the proposed expansion to SJP that was announced awhile back?

Jesus. I can't believe it's actually happening. And out of f***ing nowhere as well!! :lol:

Get in!!

The guy seems to be a genuine businessman as well. I'm just wondering though, has he sold up his stock in Sports World or whatever it was? Is he free from his other major commitments? He sounds really astute and the type of businessman that would take care of the club (and stay out of the limelight). Get in!

I'm f***ing gobsmacked over what has just happened to this club in the last week! Who'd have thought it. Everything was doom and gloom a few weeks back :)


Alan Shearer:

404 games for Newcastle - 206 goals
63 Caps for England - 30 goals
733 career games - 379 goals
Newcastle's all time leading goalscorer
Ended his career by scoring against the scum in a 4-1 win
Turned Man United down, but lived the dream Alan Shearer=TRUE LEGEND

Oh, and doesn't 41% mean both Sir John AND Douglas' shares?


This from nufc.com - St James’ Holdings Limited, a company set up specifically to buy shares in the club, has acquired 55,342,223 shares at 100p each from Wynyard (Guernsey) Limited, Cameron Hall Developments Limited and Cameron Hall Developments Limited Executive Pension Scheme, the holdings of Sir John Hall and his family.   O0

A little more info:

He's thick with Levy, Lewis and Kemsley leading to rumours that he would do a buy out at Spurs, although he'd never given any indication that he would.  Genuine football man so, in many ways, a better person to buy a club than an Abramovich.

He gets a mention here:

http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/media/article745385.ece

Are you serious?

Is everything under the sun somehow linked to Tottenham???
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

£10 says the Chronicle now turn on Freddy. Always like to back the winner, those lot.

Though on the other hand, Oliver is unlikely to get much in the way of soundbites from a media-shy owner.
