Thread: Newcastle Takeover Done

  1. #1

    Newcastle Takeover Done

    Saudi Arabian-backed takeover of Newcastle United has been completed.

    The Premier League has approved the takeover after receiving "legally binding assurances" that the Saudi state would not control the club.

    Have you seen the woman who led the takeover bid ?

    Something about the eyes

    Another failure by the fit and proper person test.

    What I find irritating is the "woe is me" Newcastle fans with their regular stay in the premier league and their tight fisted chairman who has spent £20m+ on a player four or five times. It'll do them good to spend another season or two in the championship

    To be fair there have been plenty of similar sized clubs and smaller clubs that have had more success than them.

    It's their turn maybe and I couldn't begrudge them that.

    Proper football City.

    They do like a whinge up there. They’ll no doubt find fault with the new owners. Always a bit of an interesting circus, one thing I will say though is that everyone in the area seems to have an opinion and a view on the club’s goings ons. Always a love/hate relationship, love the club, hate the owners

    A sense of entitlement, perhaps?

    They did win the FA Cup in 1955 mind, followed closely by the Inter City Fairs Cup In 1969

    All seems very fishy to me. Press are banging on about how they can now sign Mbappe and the like and Newcastle are now the richest club in the world.
    Man City all over again really.

    Modern football is just totally mental these days with top clubs needing to rely on Middle East, Russian and US billionaire corporations.

    They'll probably still be crap.

    Did no one tell the Saudi’s they could have had us for 250 million less?

    I don't think they are looking for a bargain

    What are they looking for? Throw a billion at a club I guess itís big. Itís cost the owners of Man City over a billion to get where they are, prob same for PSG. Neither won the big one yet.

    Even if they did reach the top 6 in the next few years, you get the impression they're just as likely to be bottom 6 again soon after.

    I understand the hypocrisy but god I hope they get relegated
