Sound of Football Podcast 472 - All wi' smiling faces

After a whirlwind week on Tyneside, hated Newcastle United owner, Mike Ashley, is finally out the door. This is undoubtedly cause for celebration, but should the fans be celebrating their new Saudi owners? How do we as fans draw a line in ever-shifting sands? Newcastle fan Helen Hardy from the Women's Soccer Show joins us to talk about the highs and lows she's experienced during this eventful week.

Beyond the moral arguments, what does the takeover mean for football? Newcastle only have one transfer window to avoid relegation from the Premier League before they can begin their plan to dominate both at home and in Europe.
