This is a daily discussion thread. Comment below on the topics and lets get the party started!

*This week has been an interesting one. The takeover talk is the hot topic all over news sources across the globe. This is definitely something to keep an eye on. That being said, also remember, Mike Ashley is still the owner and holds the cards, which means anything can go wrong. Obviously most of us are excited about the potential of this takeover, but progress will have to be made. Do you want this takeover to happen? Comment Below.

*Oh Amanda Staveley, how I want thee to buy Newcastle. She is set to further meetings of the club. (Business Insider)

*On to the team now. Mikel Merino loves the Newcastle crowd. He is really catching on to things at this club, on and off the pitch. (Sports Illustrated)

*Check out your ratings for the match against Liverpool (CHN)

*A little blast from the past here, but Newcastle lost their Legal bid for the seizure of documents by tax officials. It seems they “systematically abused” the tax system. More reason for Ashley Out. (The Sun)

*Continuing with blasts from the past, Ryan Taylor. He has backed Newcastle to do even better than the side Taylor was on that made the Europa League (Chronicle)
