To those saying Ashley has played us again; What does he gain from 11 hours of Twitter meltdown?

Toying with us (again) and sowing the seeds for the excuses when Rafa is allowed to walk away.
The truth points to itself

I don’t get the people saying Ashley played us either. This hasn’t came from Ashley/Newcastle.

It does feel like something has to be real and close, as everyone is saying f*** all. It would be denied by one of the parties if bullshit.

They won't comment on any individual club, but he would know that and is just trying to be his usual prick self.

Once bitten, twice shy. Refuse to believe anything until it’s gospel on the bbc or even the official club website.

The worrying thing is I can think of many more plausible scenarios where this is a Keith Bishop PR stunt.

This one keeps coming back to my thoughts.

What if Rafa is going to walk. Talks have stalled etc. So this is either a ploy to get him back to the table, or he’s leaving anyway regardless and they want a bigger story to distract people with.

Funny that You were getting all giddy last night :lol:

Aye. I lost myself in it there for a bit. Woke up this morning quite tired and with a fresh dose of cynicism 🙂

Until Charnley is publicly given a shoeing all the way from the stadium and down St James’ Blvd this is fake news.

It's Bank Holiday Monday in the UK right? And the league is out of season. Also the Premier league wouldn't go announcing a takeover lol.

Are we at this stage yet again when it comes to investing and backing your manager? The old someone is buying the club story. Basically Rafa asked for far too many assurances in his negotiations. Ashley will draw this out until.the first game of the new season and then blame the fake purchase collapse on everything.
"The Club admitted to the Tribunal that it repeatedly and intentionally misled the press, public and the fans of Newcastle United.

For those of you who would rather have Mike Ashley as an owner than the Sheikh, hope you can digest that. While Ashley is the owner this club will only every be a crutch for his genuine business interests.

I thought the Premier League actually commented about the Kenyan thing saying they hadn’t received anything. Clutching at straws but the fact they are saying no comment is a positive.

Wonder who is taking over Charnleys role?
And wonder if we will have a director of football now?

Interesting to see what the whole structure of the club will be after this.

I'm sceptical, but quite hopeful on this one. Probably just because as far as prospective owners have previously went (Staveley, Kenyon) this is one that could push us into becoming a top 4 club again.

See what happens, either way as long as Rafa stays and gets what he wants I'm happy.

I suspect the person who leaked it is on Sheikh Khaleds side of it and is very confident because they have underestimated the ficklness of Ashley, so they leak it all confident and Ashley's side are like lolololol maybe

I'm guessing exactly the same but with Lawrie Sanchez as manager.
