Newcastle fans fuming after Amanda Staveley update

Just when reports had suggested that Newcastle’s proposed takeover was finally heading to a promising conclusion, another spanner has been thrown into the works.

According to The Daily Mirror, Amanda Staveley will be involved in a High Court case with Barclays, as she sues them for a reported £1.6bn after accusing them of “deceit after the bank unfairly favoured Qatari investors over PCP as the bank looked to avoid a government bail-out and raise £7.3 billion in cash during the 2008 banking crisis”.

Can you name every one of the Magpies’ top goalscorers from the past 15 seasons? It’s a tricky one…

World Class score: 95% | Expert score: 80% | Veteran score: 65% | Intermediate score: 45% | Amateur score: 30% | Try Again: 5%

Who was top scorer during the 2018/19 campaign?

The report claims that Staveley was hoping Newcastle’s takeover would have gone through well before the start of the legal case, and that this is the kind of “adverse publicity” that they could do without at the moment.

And after hearing about the report, fans of the Tyneside club flooded to Twitter to share their reactions to the news.

A couple of Newcastle fans admitted that they have run out of patience, and are just “fed up” with the takeover dragging out and turning into a saga.

A few fans appeared to have completely lost confidence in the takeover even happening, with one supporter declaring it as “dead” and that it is time to move on.

It says it all about how long this takeover process has been, that The Daily Mirror claim that Staveley expected it all to go through long before the start of her High Court case.

How are you feeling about the takeover now?

Happy to wait

Wish it was over either way

But with the Premier League trying to take their time over doing their due diligence, the Magpies face the prospect of heading into the top-flight’s restart this month, with all this uncertainty hovering above them.

It’s hardly the ideal scenario for Steve Bruce and the players, and one that has understandably left many Newcastle fans frustrated.
