Freddie Shepherd today confirmed his stance that the club won’t be heading back into private ownership for the time being. With there being a serious shortage of ‘Geordie Abramovich’s’ it looks like we’re going to be under the fat Controller’s stewardship for some time yet. Right Said Fred said:

‘I’m not selling. It’s an impossible club to buy. If the Halls don’t sell and I don’t sell there’s no way anybody can buy this club. The both of us need to agree to sell or nobody will ever buy it without getting the 75 per cent. I can’t comment on possibly buying the Halls’ stake.’
