have responded to presenter ’ tweet hinting at a ‘good week’ for Newcastle .

“Getting the feeling from what I’m hearing that this could yet turn out to be a very good week for Newcastle fans,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account on Monday.

This comes after he smuggly told faithful in September that they should ‘follow me‘ for news of what is going on at the club.

However, The Chronicle’s news and transfer update [04/11; 19:54] reported that: “FWIW, we put Keys’ intriguing “It could be a very good week for fans” to Newcastle United and they said it’s “business as usual” as far as they’re concerned.”

OPINION

What else would you expect from Newcastle in this situation? After a summer spent saying ‘no comment’, it was entirely predictable that they would assert that it is ‘business as usual’ on Tyneside amid this big hint from Keys. Make no mistake, that’s what this tweet was from Keys. Yes, he’s fishing a little bit, and yes he may not be the most reliable source, but he’s definitely hinting at a takeover here. There’s nothing else he could be talking about with this tweet. For Newcastle fans, though, they will see this comment from the club as further confirmation that they shouldn’t get excited about anything to do with a potential takeover until owner Mike Ashley has signed on the dotted line and given the club over to a fresh face. Still, even if there was a takeover in the pipeline, it’s unlikely that the club would confirm that that is the case. What else are they going to say other than ‘business as usual’? So while hope of a takeover isn’t dead, it’s not particularly close to becoming a reality either.
