    Default Board Takeovers

    Having decided to try a new game as Newcastle manager, I noticed that Mike Ashley wants to sell the club. In the club information screen it says "In the process of board takeover". Does anybody know how long this situation lasts? Also, anybody who has played as Newcastle before, what is the likelyhood of getting a sugar daddy chairmen?

    Thanks.

    I'm surprised you only just realised that Mike Ashley wants to sell the club.

    They can take between 3-9 months according to different posters on here and sugar daddies arent very common!

    Its normally another member of the board and not much money, in my experience anyway

    I'm only 3 weeks into the game to be fair.

    Hopefully it won't take to long. I'd rather the issue just got sorted whether I get loads of money or not.

    sorry to steal the thread but i think its on topic has anyone had or heard of a takeover at a like club like Man Utd when the chairman says he loves the club. The club is in massive debt and it would be nice to clear some of that and get a little bit more cash for transfers.

    Unlucky try reducing your wages. Try and make your stadium income cover your wages then you may stop losing 3 million per month
