Possible takeover
#1
Sky are reporting that Peter Kenyon is keen on buying us.......‘The former Manchester United and Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon is plotting a takeover bid for Newcastle United that could end Mike Ashley’s decade-long ownership of the Premier League club.

‘Sky News can reveal that Mr Kenyon has approached a number of potential financial backers in recent weeks about the idea of collaborating on a deal.
‘City sources said this weekend that he was working on a bid with Rockefeller Capital Management, a New York-based firm run by Greg Fleming, one of the most prominent figures on Wall Street from his time at Merrill Lynch and then Morgan Stanley’s wealth and asset management divisions.
‘Mr Kenyon, who is now a director of a sports consultancy business called Opto Advisers, is said by potential investors to have held preliminary talks with Mr Ashley, the Sports Direct chief executive who bought Newcastle in 2007.
‘The value likely to be attached to Mr Kenyon’s offer was unclear on Saturday.
‘If a bid from him was successful, Mr Kenyon would take a senior role in the running of the club, according to a source who has been told about his plans.
‘He is said to believe that there is a significant opportunity‎ to expand Newcastle’s commercial revenues, with the club enjoying a significant international following as well as a large and loyal support at St James’ Park.
‘However, any takeover is far from guaranteed, and is partly dependent upon Mr Kenyon securing financing commitments from investors.
‘In the last few weeks, he has approached a number of private equity firms, high net worth individuals and family offices about backing an offer for Newcastle, although the status of those discussions was unclear this weekend.
‘Mr Kenyon has forged close ties with a number of Chinese investors in European football clubs, although it is not known whether any of the prospective funders of his bid for Newcastle United would be from the world’s second-largest economy.
‘He remains a credible figure in the football world, having run two of the English game’s most successful teams.’

Same old was not the same said about the Staverly bid around the same time last year? fat boy has SKY in his pocket and uses them to try and deflect any bad publicity he is getting regarding his ownership of the TOON we all have to keep the pressure on him and don't let up until he signs the dotted line and the club is sold.

ASHLEY OUT!!!!

Why would he honestly? We fill the stadium with 48K+ whether we are in the championship or the PL. And honestly can we ask people not to go and even if we did would they listen?
