Lots of people are wondering who in the world is behind Chris Nathaniel’s consortium.
What started like a joke initially now looks to be quite serious…they apparently submitted a bid in the region of £300m with Seymour Pierce sometime last week.
The whole thing seems a bit surreal but Newcastle seems to always attract the surreal and the improbable.
I gotta admit, I dont quite see the logic behind this move but then what do I know?
Why not buy a club with the same powerful fanbase but with much less drama?
Newcastle is an attractive proposition no doubt…..50,000+ fans every week is no joke.
But they are going to want to win the Champions League and they think Kevin Keegan is some kind of god up there.
Until the bid is accepted we wont know who’s behind Mr Nathaniel so I guess there’s plenty more drama left in this one.
