Report of consortium’s bid to buy Newcastle United with Shearer as manager – but it IS the Daily Mail ;-)

The Daily Mail’s Colin Young is today reporting that a consortium of local businessmen, backed by wealthy Middle Eastern investors are involved in a £90 miliion pound bid for Newcastle United. It goes on to say that the group have already spoken to Alan Shearer, and are “prepared to meet his £3 milllion a year wage demands”.

Shearer, who is currently taking a short holiday in Portugal is reported to be still interested in the job. However, it should be noted that this story IS in the Daily Mail, and this Geordie businessmen / wealthy Middle Eastern backers thing sounds like a load of old piffle, so it should probably be taken with a large pinch of salt at this stage. If any more substantial news comes to light, we shall of course keep you all posted.

  1. Literally, too good to be true. In The Daily Mail you say? Can I have some chips and vinegar with that bag of salt please.

    What would the majority of those thick Geordies want to hear? Well they’d want one of their own as manager, lots of local people involved at board level and money from wherever really but let’s keep it topical and real, maybe the Middle East then? OK, that’ll work, let’s write it up….

    ooooooaaaahhhh alan gowling

  2. I detect a note of doubt in this article.

    I thought the world was famous for its Geordie-Arabic business consortia and their forays into football club ownership.

    Clearly, according to those oracles at the Daily Mail…

  4. It does sound too good to be true. I think you article writers should apply for jobs at the daily mail. They might write something with some truth in it then.

  5. England winning today has put me in a rather bad mood.

    Hey, is that guy who was banging on to me about how loved we Geordies are here? If you are, you’re brilliant mate, you should do stand up, if only so people can laugh at you when you come out with nonsense like that.

  7. i know ive been watching it setanta. never knew duff was so good on his right foot. your lot are doing well though no-one had scored a goal against bulgaria there including italy. keane has been quiet though i would expect better from him

  8. We will bring on mcgeady nw and he will make the impact!
    It was €3 for a match ticket for this match!!u would pay more for a match programme in ireland!

  9. Mcgeady has never played great for ireland he dosnt suit our style…hunt on the other hand is a work horse and always plays well and has got a great assist today!maybe mcgeady can be used to great effect as a super sub!time will tell

  10. WHAT! Keane has been taken off! He might not have a good game but is more likely to get a goal than Leon Best.

  11. haha who sets fire to a chair in a stadium. was that you alan lol

  12. Hope leon lives up to his surname!!keane was a doubt before the game and he was strugling!
