My reading of it is that nothing has changed from the original Sun exclusive (if true). All that said was that terms had been agreed and from there you can make whatever interpretation you want, regardless of the media or rumour mongers confusing matters.
We've been here before in that we believe nowt until proven otherwise but again, if true, to the Middle Eastern group, an agreement by mouth may mean a completely different kettle of fish than what we believe it to mean.
Obviously I have my doubts but there's definitely something up as there is no logic whatsover in pissing about with the club anymore for Ashley and if this is a delaying tactic, it's costing him cash in the long run.
Also it's fairly common knowledge that there has been numerous bids to buy Newcastle with proof seen by many respectable people, it's also pretty well known that people have agreed on a price with Ashley before the goalposts have been changed overnight.
The difference this time is that it seems the Middle Eastern group has went public after having a verbal agreement in place, so if anything it's close or a massive spanner in the Ashley propaganda game.
I don't think anyone is stupid enough to believe anything after 12 years under this lying parasite, it's the hope that kills you. When you want something so bad you really want to believe it's true. History however, says you would be foolish.
My take is the press no fuck all as it came out the blue so are doing there usual and making it up, some supporting the idea with their ‘known’ contacts in the Middle East and other pouring cold water over it because the Liverpool deal didn’t happen.
We have been here many times and I will only believe it when it actually has the yellow banner flashing across Sky sports with some Arab looking chaos waving a black and white scarf above his head.
In the meantime I will sit with baited breath on this one - even LinkedIn have had some responses on this so maybe just maybe there is something in this
