Newcastle fans found reasons to be optimistic ever since Mike Ashley formally confirmed putting the club up for sale in October 2017.

The club has been ‘close‘ to being sold a few times before and this year was no different as a consortium led by former Manchester United and Chelsea Chief Executive Peter Kenyon were rumoured to have matched Mike Ashley’s evaluation.

With Mike Ashley himself going on record to say that discussions over a sale “are at a more progressed stage than they have ever been”, fans were given yet another reason to get optimistic about finally getting rid of the British entrepreneur after a recent photo of the tunnel at St. James’ Park surfaced online.

The leaked photo showed how the Sports Direct banner, which has been a part of the tunnel at St. James’ park ever since Ashley took over in 2007, was surprisingly missing.

But it is still unclear whether the development points to a potential sale of the club or the club simply trying to give the tunnel a new look.

  1. 1. The club was not first put up for sale in 2017. It’s been for sale for years.
    2. No buyer has EVER been close to taking it off Ashley’s hands.
    3.They have NEVER even been AT the negotiating table.
    4. How can Kenyon’s group be close to an agreement when they haven’t even made an offer?
    So they painted the walls black in the tunnel. Did you ever consider that they HAVEN’T FINISHED?
