Breaking news on Wednesday lunchtime is that Amanda Staveley has increased the £250m offer to around the £300m mark and a Newcastle takeover is imminent.

Sky Sports have announced the imminent deal and various newspapers/media (Mail, Mirror, Independent etc) have also stated the same.

Suggesting that this is the result of a briefing and we are at last set to be released from the grip of Mike Ashley.

It’s reported that as well as the raised bid to around that £300m mark, certain clauses that Ashley wasn’t happy with have been removed, presumably the main one being compensation due if relegation happens this season.

The Amanda Staveley bid is also said to include a willingness to help fund January spending.

With a deal taking time to finally sign off totally, the reports say that Mike Ashley will fund Newcastle’s January spending but then be reimbursed by PCP Partners (Staveley’s company).

It is claimed that this arrangement should give Rafa Benitez some £30m to spend in January.

Previous reports had suggested February as the earliest a final deal could be concluded and the end of January is the timing for that in this latest welcome update.

On Tuesday, Rafa Benitez had yet again expressed his concern about the state of affairs concerning transfers.

The Newcastle boss saying he still had no idea how much, if anything, he would have to spend in January.

Hopefully this deal will now be quickly concluded AND we see a concerted effort by team, fans, manager, tea lady…to get the three points against Everton and make the relegation talk quickly recede.

    Im not a religeous man but PLEASE GOD…PLEEAASSEEEEE!!!!! Ill even say a happy birthday to your bairn on the 25th if you make this happen

    • Peaky Magpie

      😂😂😂

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    I heard last night and this morning from two different sources that the deal has gone through and we are now in the thirty day process both sources have good connections with the club. Myself sceptical but both are adamant it’s gone through.

    • TheFatController

      I remember you saying she clearly couldn’t afford £300m? She’s called you’re bluff on that one …

      • Monkseaton Magpies

        She cannot afford three hundred million or even one hundred million but her associates or backers can none of it is her money.

        • TheFatController

          Yes, but given we always knew that why did you suggest she and her backers clearly couldn’t afford £300m. They’ve called your bluff on that one…

          • Monkseaton Magpies

            I said they should pay the going price £300m and get the job done. Having said that not sure whether she has some serious backers behind her for this project hope so for this site it remains to be seen we will know in the Summer transfer window how serious they are.

      I don`t thinks so, he`s given her a figure & she`s matched it.
      as long as the Pigs gone i`m not worried

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    I`m over the Moon that the scums leaving,
    but as i said after the initial bid he won`t blink 1st and he didn`t.
    by all accounts he`s got the £300m which is about the right price

    • 1957

      He will be happy ok, I read this morning that to do a deal both sides compromised one of which being the SD advertising stays for a ‘limited’ period of time. Let’s hope its until the end of the season at most.

      • Peaky Magpie

        I would take the advertising signs down as soon as his back is turned or cover them with something else.

      • TheFatController

        That was always going to be in the deal – simply because it’s be hard to get someone to pay for Feb-May so with all the hassle involved, might as well save on taking it down and leave it up and use it to help the deal ‘over the line’, as Pardew might say …

      • nufcslf

        Hopefully at a cost between now and the end of the season as well. No more freebies for fatso.

  • Peaky Magpie

    Would the £30m be on top of what he could raise himself ??

    • Leazes Ender

      … or what is still in the kitty, unspent since the summer….

      • Peaky Magpie

        Good point

      • MichaelMaximusMoose

        That`s already in his pocket

        • Peaky Magpie

          Aye,huge pockets the size of the fat f***a !

        • TheFatController

          We should make him have his pockets and bags searched before he leaves like SD employees had to…

    • TheFatController

      It’ll be £30m more than Ashley intended to spend I’d suggest…

  • Rich Lawson

    If true ? Bounce for tonight and destroy Fat Sam and Rooney !

    • MichaelMaximusMoose

      the news came just at the right time, St James tonight will be a sight to see

      • Peaky Magpie

        I live in Peak District I’ll expect to hear crowd if I open my windows !

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    He`ll empty the till as he exits stage left

    • TheFatController

      Give him that SD exit search he advocates

  • Christopher Edwards

    £30 mill gets us the striker we need, what about the keeper, left back and no.10?

    • HarryHype59

      Unless the £30m is used as a down payment to bring in at least £90m worth of players, I fear it is not enough!

      • nufcslf

        Think this will be closer to the truth, especially if today ends in a loss.

  • Paul Patterson

    At this stage I would advise extreme caution where Mike Ashley is concerned . .

    • 1957

      Yeah it would be just like him to let the excitement build and pop the bubble tomorrow, when there’s something official I’ll believe it.

      • nufcslf

        And likely another loss to his cause.

    • Peaky Magpie

      Do you think he might dump on his seat like that dirty mackem b****rd ??

  • Leazes Ender

    Isn’t anyone concerned about the credentials of the new owner(s)? I am from the little I know.

    Mandy’s friends seem to be autocrats, tax dodgers, those with little regard for democracy or decency.

    • Kneebotherm8

      • Leazes Ender

        Yup

    • paul mclaughlan

      Aren’t most of the super rich tax dodgers?

      • grantham mag

        No, all the super rich are tax dodgers

    • Coble’s Return

      I know we’ve discussed this before and I share your desire to see the club responsibly run by a moral exemplar and with the logo for a blue chip company with impeccable social and environmental credentials on the shirt, but that isn’t the world we live in. The Dalai Lama is not in the market for a PL football club.

      Protests to Ashley have always fallen on deaf ears, but just maybe, if this does go through, the new owners will do as Rafa has done and make some effort to understand what makes the area tick. If that means that we never see another Wonga on our shirts, then I will take that.

      • Leazes Ender

        Lose a shilling and find a sixpence…. A lot of people are proclaiming a messiah again and I wish they wouldn’t, but this isn’t going to be a Man City type regeneration and exactly where the new retainer positions the club with some genuine investment we’ll have to wait and see.

        No experience of running a club they will need a new Chairman and genuine board, with local input, and a decent public relations team to undo ten years of Ashley’s bad PR.

        • TheFatController

          Agreed that they’ll have to set right expectations of their capabilities, it won’t be a Mansour investment

          But hopefully they’ll have objectives that include training facilities, regional youth development, scouting overhaul etc

          And some ambition with outside investment and partners, sponsors etc

          That’d be better LT than just throwing money at the first team (and stadium to be fair) like Hall did – enjoyed it but lower but vital elements of the club were left undeveloped

        • Virsino

          I don’t claim to have expertise on where they may take the club, but one would hope that after her involvement in the Man City deal, and the purported desire to own a slice of Liverpool by her investors previously, that the past is an indicator of the desire for the future. It doesn’t seem to smack of mid table obscurity. Hopefully.

        • hetonmag

          What’s wrong with Chris Mort having some input he knows how things work up here or have you got some dirt on him also.

      There’s a chance she/they could be worse but with Ashley owning the club there is a 100% chance of failure and animosity.

    30 mil isn’t really a significant transfer kitty not that I don’t want Ashley gone but I can see us signing what two players of sufficient quality with that

    • Peaky Magpie

      Even if it covers the fees/wages of quality loan signings it’s a start,we must ensure safety then take it from there.

    • HarryHype59

      Totally agree, unless its used to bring in £90m worth of players on staggered payments!

      • Damon Horner

        Which it has a chance to with Ashley not calling the shots. Just have to wait and see what happens.

        And Mbemba and Jonjo and maybe Matt,

          he`ll get enough for Jack to pay for the stamps on his Christmas cards (as long as he`s not sending them abroad).

      • jack

        Unfortunately I’m one the supporters who think mitro should play every week , if any player has had a raw deal it’s him

        • Wor Lass

          Completely agree.

  • S.G.M.

  • HTL

    As long as they let Rafa spend the thirty million on players he wants, without any interference from upstairs (Ashley, Barnes or whoever else has been restricting the finances for which players are signed: Abrahams, Townsend, etc)
    HTL

  • lukegte

    £30m doesn’t seem enough (sickeningly). Since the club won’t actually change hands until towards the end of the window (I’ve read many times it takes around a month after the offer is accepted, is this right?) they could be looking at loans and not putting their stamp on it just yet. It’s a world cup year and the top clubs have many players available for loan (Casilla at Real, Batshuayi at Chelsea, Shaw at Man U…)

    Alternatively, the £30m might just have been plucked out of nowhere by some prat.

    I just looked at Transfermarkt out of interest and there are a lot of good, experienced players out of contract next summer. Maybe some cheap deals will be done in Jan. Imagine Mata at Toon!

    • TheFatController

      Mata’s Played for Rafa hasn’t he? Doubt they’d sell in Jan, but for Chelsea and Man Utd here he’s been amazing as I recall. Must like the place !

      Stil be over £20m though probably.

      Sadly schnedierlin played for Everton Sunday, he’d be a good loan if still out of the picture there.

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      Who else in the bottom 14 will spend more than £30m this January?

  • TheFatController

    Before we start discussing the £30m figure the press are claiming, can we first consider how they’d know that, who would tell them, and who would know what the figure is already that could actually tell them?

    Has any club ever known or told what it is about to spend in a window?

    Clickbait figure made up to enable ‘exclusive’ on a story that they don’t have the exclusive or any other facts on otherwise ..

    • TheNutJob

      Fake News or Rafa leaked it
      😂😂
      it`ll be £30m + dosh from sales, i guess

      • TheFatController

        Maybe, yes. But given the deal hasn’t been finalised, finances for spend in Jan couldn’t be known. They have so much fine detail the price may vary by huge amounts yet.

        The deal seems to be agreed in principle. Loads of financial elements will be needing ratifying. Including the transfer funds.

        • TheNutJob

          true

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      Rafa mentioned we had £30m to keep within FFP, not sure how that would be.

      • Stephen Paylor

        will depend on last years financial results, on paper when i work them out they don’t show a loss but a break even due to net transfer numbers.

        • Oooh bobbi fleckman

          FFP is based on turnover (rather stupid but it’s a fudge) we would have had a decent turnover (for the championship) but high costs given we had premier league wages.

          TBPH, I can;t see many clubs outside the top 7 spending more than £30m in January. Brighton and Huddersfield mortgaged the EPL money and spent in the summer, Everton still have a budget for a Striker having missed out on Giroud and West Ham will have a bit spare.

          • Stephen Paylor

            what would you expect to be available in the next window? I would rather see Mitro sold and Batshuyai signed for 30 million but i think Rafa knows the number 10 role is also desperate. Staggered payments for Ross Barkley or maybe its time for Tom Cairney?

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            I can’t see batshuayi coming permanently and if it were a loan, he’d be waiting in better offers. The time to get him was when Carr recommended him but he blew out our offer.

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            Ross Barkley wants to go London, Cairney is very likely

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    Heard the deal has been agreed and if this is correct the transfer figure could be anything even up to a hundred million know one knows and if Ashley has to pay it he will get it back when all the formailities are completed with the Premier league so £30m is a herring. It depends on the players he wants and what the budget is but no reason why it should not be more.

    • Stephen Paylor

      FFP limits i think will keep it down

    • Danimal

      The players he wants? He wants us relegated and in Hell, the vile apology for a human being.

  • X,WHY,Y MAN.

    PROCEED WITH CAUTION !

  • Damon Horner

    Definitely positive but no celebrations yet until you see the fat lad waddling over the Tyne Bridge with his suitcases of cash…

    • TheFatController

      I’m wondering what will happen to the atmosphere. I don’t think the players have been affected, but the home support clearly has.

      Will we see the end of the ‘long silences’ now the shackles (around our optimism) look like being taken off ?

      That could be of huge benefit to an inexperienced team if so. Get right in the opposition’s faces, and on the ref’s back, can’t do any harm.

      When did we last get a penalty? The biggest atmosphere I recall has been for the Tiote disallowed Man City goal and the penalty ‘retake’ denied v Burton. We need that every game when we don’t get a throw our way or they taken 2 yards on a free kick.

      • Damon Horner

        Crowd is generally lifted when hearing gold news. It felt electric when Keegan was announced when we played Stoke. Sadly reality will hit but at least there could be more optimism to the transfer window. Regardless though we need results 😞

        • TheFatController

          I think the timing of this leak that hasn’t been denied is no accident …

          • Damon Horner

            Possibly right but if has a rejuvenating effect on the fans and players it’s not a bad thing!

          • Geordiegiants

            I was listening to talk sport earlier and she has said the deal isn’t done yet.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    Nufc has £30m in the bank, no matter who`s in charge the 30 mills there, so that`s where they came up with that figure.
    Fatso won`t rob it, but he would if he could

    • TheFatController

      I repeat, and am not joking, search his pockets and bag before he leaves on his last day …

    I don`t know how true this one is but when I did a stadium tour with some visitors years ago the guide showed us a broom closet with a plaque saying “Board room” on it. He reckoned one of the clauses in the contract with Hall et al was that Stan Seymour (I think it was him, anyway) would have full access to the Board room – so it was renamed and the old plaque put on the broom closet! I hope Amanda`s people are a bit more careful in crossing the “t`s” and dotting the “i`s”!

    Where`s Clarko, don`t tell there`s been another power cut in Pennywell

    • HappyToons

      He’s electrocuted himself ironing his tinfoil hat

    • Peaky Magpie

      Scrupulously going over the club accounts with a heavy heart and a tear in his eye.

    • Jezza

      I thought he was from Monkseaton.

  • Grahame Johnson

    Dear Amanda any chance of adopting a 52 year old fat,balding,nearly toothless not house trained Geordie. Loyalty and love guaranteed if you treat his club with care,

  • Mike

    I hope we clear ALL of CAshleys dross out I mean beardo moncur clean sweep

  • Stephen Paylor

    30 million is the maximum i think that can be spent because of the FFP restrictions. Maybe staggered payments and loans with clauses to buy later. Rafa is smart and i trust he will do the right things. I would prefer to see only top players brought in that can strengthen the first 11. Left back, number 10 and a new number 9. I have been saying it for weeks but Luke Shaw, Batshuyai and Ross Barkey are perfect

    • StevieB

      Good call👍

  • HappyToons

    Mike was in a good mood this afternoon singing to himself:

    Good-bye-ee! good-bye-ee!
    Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee.
    Tho’ it’s hard to part I know,
    I’ll be tickled to death to go.
    Don’t cry-ee! don’t sigh-ee!
    There’s a silver lining in the sky-ee.
    Bonsoir old thing, cheerio! chin chin!
    Nah-poo! Toodle-oo!
    Good-bye-ee!

    What chant can we have to say ‘goodbye’ to good old Mike when the day (eventually) arrives?

    • Peaky Magpie

      F**k off Fatlad !

    • nufcslf

      The fat c**nts gone
      Ding dong the fat c** nts finally gone.

    Drink. Drink. Wherever you may be.
    Ashley’s out thanks to Sta-ve-ley
    And we will drink
    Wherever we may be
    Cos we all really hate Mike Ashley!

    With thanks to Chris Holt for this ditty

    • Oooh bobbi fleckman

      hmm, holty should stick to his stats justification of starting Josulu. A pal of mine came up with, “I said Staveley, you’re gonna be the one that saves me… and after all, you can lick my ballsss…”.

      • Dillon Tovak

        Sexist 🐷

        • Oooh bobbi fleckman

          Yep, I didn’t like the last line, some sort of incorporation of Geordie roar may work

      • HarryHype59

        Misogynistic swine!

        • Oooh bobbi fleckman

          Yep, I think the last line needs work.

  • Steve Smith

    Mitrovic and Colback are valued at £30m?

    • Jezza

      Misprint, it should have been 30 quid.

  • HarryHype59

    I still don’t get why she is willing to pay £300m, for a club that is free falling back to the Championship! Something isn’t right!

    • Whitehurst

      Still half the season to go fella!! Although I hope Mandy has an XL cheque book….because she’s going to have to write a few extra “0’s” in Jan!!

      • HarryHype59

        The £30m “war chest” won’t be enough unless she uses it as a first installment to bring in at least £90m worth of players on staggered payments! If the Fatman had done this last summer, we wouldn’t be in free fall now!
