With Newcastle United having made an awful start to the new season, accumulating just 2 points out of the first 21 available, these are worrying times for the support.
However, could there be light at the end of the tunnel?
According to the respected news source, the Guardian, a consortium is being formed that could, thankfully, end the 11-year tenure of Mike Ashley as the owner of our football club.
Our referenced source reports that the former Manchester United and Chelsea chief executive, Peter Kenyon, is behind plans to end Ashley’s reign.
However, before we all rush outside and do a jig of delight at the news, we should point out that the deal is still very much in its infancy.
Perhaps the biggest problem to be overcome relates to the fact that Ashley wants, in the region of, £400 million for the club, a huge fee when you consider that the squad will also need an element of expenditure to bring it back up to the strength required to be anything other than relegation candidates.
But, here at Vital Newcastle, we’re hoping that light at the end of the tunnel becomes a shining beacon and, very soon, we’ll be embarking on a bright new future.
It’s not too much to ask for, is it?
