@mridley81 – “He's been trying to sell us on and off since 2009. Think how many other clubs have been sold in that time. Loads.”

@andrew14ad – “Every leak is from the club – it’s always the same with #nufc.”

@BlackAliblack1 – “Newcastle have not released anything, just no comment if i have read things right plus talks been going on for 4 months seemingly, which goes against the January policy. Think we need to be patient and not get to carried away.”

@TaylorandBesty – “Could we not be bought out by someone with a bit more of a moral compass than the Saudi Royal Family?”
