The internet is awash with speculation after another takeover rumour involving Newcastle United emerged.
Social media users are scrutinising flights and documents submitted to Companies House after reports that Amanda Staveley of PCP Capital Partners is attempting to broker a deal to purchase the club from current owner Mike Ashley.
Staveley is said to be leading a group largely financed by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, including British billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben.
These were the best Newcastle takeover jokes as submissions to Companies House ‘prove advanced talks are nearing completion’:

I know I've said I'm not getting carried away with this takeover but here's a picture I made of Saint Maximin riding a camel holding the UCL and PL trophies while Alan Barnes is riding next to him with a recently beheaded Mike Ashley in his hands #NUFCTakeover #NUFC pic.twitter.com/lxsue39uJQ

Imagine if this Saudi interest is all just bullshit…. we’ll be left lumbered with Ashley but we’ll know every single Saudi investment, aircraft journey and tail plate going. They’ll probably put restraining orders on us all. #nufc #NUFCTakeover

The worst thing about these #NUFCTakeover sagas are the uncertainty they cause Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft. Who I’m sure are all waiting to pounce and hire Lee fucking Charnley once he becomes available. #nufc
