God help us if we end up in the hands of any "consortium" from Africa. Am I the only one who has concerns about Nigerian businessmen given the amount of financial corruption in Nigeria?Not only that - what would be the point of selling to a group who will put up the same or less amount of money for transfers as Ashley?The bottom line is, these days if you can't afford to pour money into it like it was a bottomless pit, don't buy a premiership club.

Heh I like that Phil Brown is a bigot cos he got a kicking off some Newcaslte supporters for not being a Newcastle supporter! That makes loads of sense.I see that they have had to push the "final" deadline for investors back. So shock horror he hasn't been able to force the investors to make the same mistake he did and not perform due dilegence. This means that all of the talk of Newcastle being debt free etc... are clearly rubbish (Ashley even said they were still in loads of debt just before putting them up for sale).It's really getting embarrasing now talking to the majority of Newcastle fans. Every time they thing that the latest consortium is the real thing and is going to come in and not only save Newcastle from Ashley but also invest heavily in new players.Frankly if I was looking to invest in a club I wouldn't go near Newcastle. Even if they aren't losing any money the fans will turn on you if you don't do what they want and then boycoutt!
Deadline extended? What a surprise. Ashley is in no position to impose deadlines. He should be grateful that someone is stupid enough to even consider buying the club.
more chance of finding shergar than this club being sold for the price ashley wants
As long as Newcastle United will have a transfer kit of 5-7 million available in every season, the Nigerian consortium should get the nod for 120 million pound.
Another call from The Kennedy Space Centre. The Uranian space ship is delayed because their GPS took them to Exeter, but they are on the way with the out-of-this-world bid.Good news. they plan to rename the club Uranus Ashby in recognition of the job Ashby has done. They will encourage the fans to shout "Up Uranus Ashby". That ought get he lads going alright.
i beleive newcastle wont be sold for the price ashley wants for it but i do beleive newcastle will be sold by next weekend
Richyburger, Brown got a kicking off two girls, not for not being a Newcastle supporter, but for being a Mackem. He was allegedly steaming drunk in Mothercare Northumberland street, with his red and white top on, quite brave really, shouting at black and white babywear. Now there's a big difference there mate.

fantastic timing from the big fat chairman ashley, you couldn't pick a better time to sell a football club. i bet banks are falling over themselves to lend money at the moment.
Ashley has Newcastle's interest at heart.BUTHe will only sell at a profit.Says it all really.He'll be lucky to sell at all.It's not just the economic climate, but who would really want such a troubled club?
