Newcastle fans are pretty confident there will be no takeover, judging by their reactions to a Tweet.
Fansite NUFC 360 shared a post saying if any statement is forthcoming from the Bin Zayed Group you would assume it will be today as the weekend in UAE is Friday and Saturday.
The Tweet came off the back of another one posted by Peter Redding, a sports presenter on Capital Radio UAE. His post stated BZG are still buoyant (have been waiting on PL) and a statement would be released in the next few days. He Tweeted that three days ago, there has been no such statement released.
The Sun first broke the takeover story in May, and have given updates since then that the deal is progressing, but the club have remained silent.
With no manager in place and last season’s top-scorer now gone, more fans are starting to consider that the buyout will not happen, with some not believing there was one in the first place.
Some supporters are only referring to it as the ‘fakeover’ and think there will be many more years under Mike Ashley to come. Many fans took to Twitter to share their reactions.
If any statement is forthcoming from the BZG group you would assume it will be today as tomorrow is their weekend #NUFC

I think everyone is pretty much resigned to the fact there will be no takeover and probably never was.

I’d be amazed if there was any statement. Likewise, I hope I am wrong, but I suspect the takeover is fakeover!! Only at the circus that is #Nufc
