Blue Skies Will Soon Be Smiling On Newcastle Fans

The Chronicle are reporting today that Newcastle United officials and players are getting ready for the takeover to be announced.

The latest on that today is the acquisition has passed the owners’ and directors’ tests, and the Premier League are said to be ready to announce it on or around June 1st.

That’s a week on Monday.

The Sun broke the news last night, and it’s really great news for Newcastle fans around the world.

It was six weeks ago yesterday that the documents for the takeover were presented to the Premier League.

But the test has been slowed down by the Premier League’s Project Restart and the possible piracy of the Premier League games by Saudi Arabia station BeoutQ.

The PL have looked at all of that and have found nothing to stop the deal from being approved.

And concerns voiced by rival Premier League clubs have also been readily dismissed because they wouldn’t want to see another club with the financial resources of Manchester City or Chelsea coming along to challenge for a top-four place every season.

Why does the word – jealousy – come to mind?

Newcastle have always been a massive club given the fabulous stadium we have, and any club that can attract an average home gate of over 51,000 in the second division is some club indeed.

That club is Newcastle United.

And just think what St. James Park will look like without those ugly and disgusting Sports Direct signs all over the place.

If you want to take a look at that, watch Sir Bobby Robson’s first home game as manager at St. James’ Park.

We hammered bottom of the league Sheffield Wednesday 8-0 back in September 1999, and the stadium was unspoiled.

The pitch looks absolutely perfect and notice how quickly the game was played back then, with very few interruptions, and the free kicks were even taken with only a minimum of protests.

That’s unlike what happens today, and the VAR will only make the game even slower in the future.

The staff at Newcastle, including the players, are reported to be bracing for the takeover, with our players currently in phase 1 of their training regime as ordered by the Premier League’s Project Restart.

With the lads back in training, there are still at least 10 games for Newcastle to play.

With the transfer window also coming up, there will be lots and its of news about Newcastle from now on: that’s after a scarcity of it since the Premier League was suspended back on Friday, March 13th.

That’s got to be good, and now we don’t have to make stuff up.


Here’s Rod Stewart singing that Irving Berlin classic – Blue Skies – he does a nice job.

    Quick heads up here for anyone who hasn’t picked up them yet. Check out the “Playing for Change/Song Around the World” series on Youtube. They’re remarkable.

    Ten football lge clubs could go into administration due to the lack of income through the virus.
    The mackems are skint and could be close to it, so the question here is, how many bloggers would be bothered?

    I think we might see a lot of movement toward fan ownership of clubs
    Which cannot be a bad thing

    I’m not sure about the FA or EPL announcing anything. They don’t divulge whether there’s an application let alone announce any results. It’s a confidential, legal process involving the FA, EPL, the applicant (the club) and the potential owners.
