Ananda Krishnan “has no interest to buy Newcastle United”.

Krishnan - "No interest" in NUFC.
Krishnan - No interest in NUFC.
Malaysian billionaire, Ananda Krishnan, has issued a statement declaring that he isn’t interested in buying Newcastle United. The statement, issued by one of his companies, Usaha Tegas, reads:

“News reports were carried on July 5 and July 6 in various newspapers in Malaysia and Singapore that Mr Ananda Krishnan or companies owned by Mr Krishnan had expressed an interest in purchasing Newcastle United Football Club and that his representatives had been engaged in talks to explore or even conclude such a deal.

“There is in fact no truth or foundation to this story.

“Mr Krishnan has not expressed an interest in purchasing Newcastle United Football Club, has not sent any delegation to Newcastle to engage in such talks or authorised any representatives to negotiate on his behalf and is not considering any such purchase,”

Of course, virtually all the reporting on the Newcastle United sale has been complete and utter guff, as virtually all details of the ongoing sale have been wrapped up in non-disclosure agreements which participants in the sale would hardly break for some silly newspaper story. This however has not stopped the drivel machine making up the most ludicrous stories, including Krishnan’s prosective purchase, which has now been revealed for specious fairytale that it is.

  1. Who now then? The Singapore Profitable Group or FFS. O dear.. Just shows you cant believe what you read. Wonder were this story first came from? Was it the gutter press? Tbh i was hoping it was going to be Ananda Krishnan with all his $$$$$s.

  2. Means nothing; Louise Taylor, Lee Ryder et al know about as much as you or I when it comes to the finer details of the goings-on regarding the prospective sale of Newcastle United – all speculation.

    I’ll wait until the sale is officially confirmed, and in the meantime will continue to ignore the ‘insiders’ and gossip-merchants alike.

  3. Who has actually confirmed that the group being shown round were actually Malaysian?

    No disrespect but they could have been from India,Singapore,Indonesia or Hong Kong.

    We just don’t know, like everyone else.

    Although I do know I’m losing the will to live and I can’t see us finding anything out this week.

  4. This crap is seriously starting to get to me. I don’t know if you guys saw it, but that “David Craig” character was on the .com talking about Shepherd coming in with his son being in control of transfers again. He eventually buggered, but now I’m starting to fear the worst. I also heard something about a press conference at SJP on Friday?? I don’t know what that’s all about. Please let something be figured out soon!

    Andrew, even if he was the real David Craig, there’s no way in a million years that he would have access to that kind of information. There won’t be any “leaks” or anything of that kind regarding this sale. Keith Harris and Seymour Pierce will ensure complete confidentiality as the process proceeds, and they’re VERY good at that sort of thing.

    These youn kids must be able to speak Malaysian then eh?

    She shouldn’t be reporting on us.

    We really need to ignore all rumours and ‘inside’ info as it all turns out to be false.

    There are only a handful of people who know what’s going on and my aunties sister or mate who cleans the changing room at SJP aren’t in that handful!

  7. “insider info” anyone can make it up really like richard branson having got a taste for sport in f1 and jealous of flavio briatore’s owning qpr decided to one up him by purchasing newcastle united. Plans for the club involve the renaming of St James to the virgin stadium and putting up of massive virgin sign right where the sports direct one is at the moment.

  8. Here, I’ll take your minds off the NUFC sale saga!

    Who wants to sponsor me for the Great North Run?

  9. I’m not falling for any of that stuff Worky. I’m not that thick! It’s just annoying is all. I just hope Seymour Pierce can do their best to hurry Fatty up in making a decision.

    “Who wants to sponsor me for the Great North Run?”

    Bowburn,

    Is it per mile, or for the whole thing? What forms of payment are you accepting? Who’s it for etc.

    Maybe I could put a little thing in the sidebar about it if it’s for a good cause.

  11. Been away a few days and still no end to this nightmare in sight. It would be laughable if the whole thing wasn’t so damn tragic.

    Good articles the last few days guys. Will get my finger out and write something up soon.

    ‘And where have you been, Deb?’

    Hi Worky, been in ‘the Smoke’ with work since Monday morning just got back. Managed a couple of snatched visits on the blog to see if there were any news but not long enought to comment. There’s been some really interesting articles on here though and good to see some new visitors.

    “Been away a few days and still no end to this nightmare in sight. It would be laughable if the whole thing wasn’t so damn tragic.”

    Deb,

    It was always going to be like this though regarding the timescale. The main thing is that Ashley keeps trying to sell at the WORST possible times regarding the “knock-on” effect to the team.

    It’s really good to see you back anyway, and I hope you had a nice time apart from the Toon anguish! :-)

  14. Back to decent people, the guys over there are idiots.

    Im trying not to read into any possible takeover news because 99% of the stuff you read is total B.S, I can just sense this will be a last minute job.

    “I’m not falling for any of that stuff Worky. I’m not that thick!”

    Never thought you were, Andrew. I just keep banging on about it anyway because it’s so obvious, yet so many people just don’t seem to get it.

  16. “virtually all the reporting on the Newcastle United sale has been complete and utter guff”

    A good turn of phrase that pretty much sums it up.

    As I’ve said before, I wouldn’t mind if they made it obvious it was speculation, but they pass it off as fact.

    Thanks Toon. Is there another custard pie fight going on over there? :-)

  18. worky – nah just talking nonsense.

    Including me probably! ;-)

    Keeps you sane in these difficult times though.

  19. Worky, never took it personally.
    Seriously, there is just nothing left to discuss or hear about right now is there??

    “Seriously, there is just nothing left to discuss or hear about right now is there??”

    There’ll be a hell of alot to talk about quite soon though, Andrew.

  21. We can only hope so, can’t we?? Or do you know something and you’re not sharing???

    Probably just more crap from the papers tomorrow
