Plenty of Newcastle United fans found themselves agreeing with The Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards and his views on the stuttering progress of the Magpies’ takeover.

He told talkSPORT that the St James’ Park faithful have been completely ignored during the long-winded saga and deserve more respect.

He also added that Mike Ashley is blameless and stated that it is “bordering on ludicrous”, to the point where it is starting to damage the club.

Do you think the takeover will be announced this week?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

A £300m bid was accepted from the Saudi-based Public Investment Fund (PIF) but have suffered with severe delays due to the Premier League’s owners’ and directors’ test, as well as the World Trade Organisation’s (WTO) report.

With this in mind, supporters were in agreement with Edwards and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he was “absolutely spot on”, while another simply stated, “credit where credit is due”.
