Sky Sports taunt Newcastle fans with misleading headline

Newcastle fans desperate to see the back of Mike Ashley must have thought their prayers had been answered when clicking on the Sky Sports website this morning and finding the headline “Magpies poised for takeover” as one of the lead football stories.

The sub-heading “Middle East-based consortium have bid accepted” would have whetted appetites even more only for a glance down the page to reveal the story is about League Two side Notts County.

Far be it from us to accuse someone of using a misleading headline to get hits on their site (ahem), but they could have avoided heaping more misery on the Geordie nation by taking Auntie’s approach .
