Quotes from the Sunday Times today attribute the Toon Chairman as wanting to sell NUFC at the nearest opportunity. I don’t think anyone would argue with his leaving the club at this point.
What people will argue about though is the timing. With Alan Shearer seemingly ready to sign on the dotted line if his requirements are met, any further delay on appointing a new permanent manager could see Newcastle seriously in trouble.

It’s worth mentioning that Newcastle would be a lot more of an attractive asset if a certain investment was made (i.e appointing Shearer).
