This is the week!


All rumours and whispers are pointing to a deal being finalised this week.


While wise guessed that Ashley will wait for promotion, I think it more likely that he will include a clause in the sale for a bonus if / when we go up.


Our regular in the know, Redheugh has said he will reveal all he knows at 11.00am today!

:ninja: I suppose if you say that every week it might come true eventually.

Geoff Sheard, whose American charity fund-financed bid for Newcastle has been ridiculed by the opposition, is still in talks with owner Mike Ashley's lawyers through Manchester legal firm Halliwells.

Sheard, who led a consortium that failed to buy Sheffield Wednesday, is adamant that Halliwells now have proof the New York-based investment group have the necessary money to buy the club.
