George Caulkin relays Amanda Staveley’s & Mike Ashley’s stance on £300m takeover – “My confidence hasn’t wavered” | NUFC Blog

As the lengthy takeover saga continues, there seem to be fewer and fewer people to trust when it comes to some form of "updating" the current status.

A man who has been silent over the past week when George Caulkin – arguably the region's most trusted writer and the man who saw evidence of Amanda Staveley's offer on her previous attempt to buy the club.

Today he reacts to fans on social media for the first time in a while.

He insists that his "trust" in a deal that has been closed remains the same – suggesting that piracy problems have NOT put the deal into sudden doubt – and that the buyers (Staveley / Saudis / Reubens) remain adamant and the sales side (Mike Ashley )) also "expect it to happen":

My trust hasn't wavered, but my trust is not the point. Buyers have always been optimistic, sellers want their money and expect it to happen. Both sides had positive hints and instructions. BUT the decision has not yet been made. So … we just have to wait.

“Buyers have always been optimistic, sellers want their money and expect it to happen.

“Both sides had positive hints and instructions. BUT the decision has not yet been made.

"So … we just have to wait."

After admitting that it was "a bit ridiculous" that the deal with the Premier League would continue, Caulking stressed that this delay could also be due to the fact that the Premier League took much longer than they expected, to complete the project restart:

They had a lot of things on the go – and it clearly took longer to sort the restart than they expected. This must be legally watertight, but is frustrating for absolutely everyone.

So it is promising to hear that BOTH sites are still very confident that this £ 300m deal will come about at some point. However, the time it took to get approval has made the originally exciting process a tedious one.

I don't care how long it takes for the end result to be good news, which means that Mike Ashley is gone and ambitious and wealthy new owners are joining, although I'm not sure there are many Newcastle fans, who can stand a lot more of this.
