Newcastle fans react as Sky journalist gives takeover verdict

Lots of Newcastle fans have been reacting to a tweet from Sky Sports reporter Pete Graves, who had his say on the reported takeover statement from the Bin Zayed Group.

The Toon Army were left somewhat baffled on Monday as the Bin Zayed Group (BZG), supposedly released a statement through Dubai-based Geordie radio host Peter Redding.

The statement basically said nothing new or concrete, but just reaffirmed that the group are trying their best to complete a deal, leaving fans questioning the very validity of the proposed takeover.

Now, Graves, a Newcastle-based Sky Sports reporter, has tweeted his verdict on the situation.

Graves alludes to the conflicting sources on different continents, saying that those outside of Dubai are advising caution, while he also slams the toxic atmosphere around the press before calling this the “weirdest summer ever”.

The St. James’ Park faithful are running out of patience though, if they haven’t already, and some of them took issue with the tweet while others simply agreed that the club is in utter disarray.

Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
