That’s a pretty pointless statement. What stage are they at ? Is it still on? I hope I’m wrong but I think the inevitable is coming.
It just points to Ashley.............brinkmanship, then more obfuscation and then the inevitable I'm doing my bit everyone else is an r sole.

Also, I find it strange how this ‘statement’ is coming from that toon fan who works at capital radio in the UAE and not BZG themselves.

Following a meeting with Bin Zayed Group officials they would like to put on record the following information for NUFC fans:

“Both parties have worked diligently in finalising a deal, none more so than ourselves.

“We have completed every aspect required in a takeover process.

“Press claims of no bids or Premier League approval processes are simply untrue.

“The current owners have cooperated amicably throughout this process and if a deal is not forthcoming it will not be due to lack of effort from both parties.”

#ohffs
<scratch>
I know I speak for both of us in that we continue to share a serious determination to finalise the agreement we have to suit both parties as soon as possible in the new year.

We have both spent many months discussing the parameters of a final deal and as you know we have also invested heavily in time and money on our various legal and financial advisors.

And I appreciate the time and effort committed to the detailed discussions by your advisors, lawyers, club, and, of course, yourself.

I fully respect your desire to ensure the next owners of Newcastle United understand the club, football, and have the appropriate financial resources, and I am delighted that you think the investor group led by myself is the best fit.

On my side, I would like to personally assure you that I am committed to conclude our deal as soon as possible and, while we are both perhaps frustrated that we have not progressed as quickly as we would have wished, I would like to express personal gratitude for your patience and integrity in this matter and hope we can continue our discussions in the same spirit.

Until we hear from proper channels any statements should be treated as:

An unofficial spokesperson for the Bin Zayed Group said “eEeEeEeEeEeEe” about the mooted purchase of Newcastle United. Another spokesperson with no official links to the organisation also known as BZG translated the previous statement as “Woof. Woof. Woof. Ruff. Woof” which was then translated by her owner to someone with a podcast.

“What’s that girl? Flipper says the BZG deal is still ongoing! And you say Lee Charnley is stuck down a well?”

Two of the highlights today:
  • Someone's mam's mate works at the box office and supposedly Mike Ashley has bought them flowers & said his goodbyes <laugh>.
  • Someone wiping their twitter account to set up a fake Bin Zayed one, which a load of simpletons have retweeted & seem to believe
That & the ongoing patter of a load of "ITKs" including Burnsie claiming that they're the one source of truth over established journos <scratch>

Latest rumour is that BZG are in discussions with a US hedge fund to finance the purchase.

Another poor billionaire. At least there's some other parties negotiating for Newcastle. Ha!

Shall we do a sweep on what country the next takeover will be from? We've had Stavely's unnamed middle east contacts, Kenyon's US based consortium, and now the UAE based Bin Zayed Group.

We are due a Chinese takeover. They can bring Rafa back <awe>

Apparently a US hedge fund have been approached about helping finance the deal at a pretty high interest rate. Sounds expensive.
