Is It Time To Celebrate The Takeover – It’s Getting Close



Good news on the takeover last night as it looks like once again we are being told there is nothing to prevent the Premier league from blessing the Amanda Staveley-led acquisition, as even a day of around June 1st is being reported.

That’s very close to it being “next week,” which has been reported so many times in the past, but the good thing about this is there have now been multiple positive reports over the past week.

Those reports are that the Premier League are finishing up their owners’ and directors’ test and have found nothing to prevent the deal going through.

Time for a huge celebration?

Not quite, but maybe we can all relax a little and just think of the enormity of this for Newcastle United, the great City of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and most of all for our long-suffering and world-class fans.

They are the ones who are the life-blood of the club, and who have been held down, against our will, by Mike Ashley for a long and shameful 13 years.

Amanda Staveley – new Newcastle CEO?

But the handcuffs and leg-irons will come off once Amanda Staveley’s ambitious group start to take control of the club.

Just think how interesting and exciting it’s all going to be to see the club being transformed from top to bottom under the regime.

Amanda has brought together the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund and also funds from her PCP Capital Partners Group and the Reuben brothers, to make the deal for £300M, in these difficult times.

It looks like Ms. Staveley will become the CEO for a while and will run the club day-to-day.

We are told the Governor of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, will become the Chairman and
Jamie Reuben (the son of David and the nephew of Simon) will be a Director on the new Board.

Ms. Staveley is also looking for a new manager to bring in and a new Director of Football, and we noticed yesterday there were signs that even Rafa Benitez could be returning to Newcastle.

It looks like the deal will go through the week after next, but we will need to remain patient for about another 10 days oh no!

Remember – all’s well that ends well.

    Just had a cynical (if not improbable thought) does any of the delay link into payments the club have due to them that Old Mike can skim off the top before selling? Transfer fees due in 6 monthly installments; installations of TV payments/prize money etc? Just reaching…

    so the next week’s ‘next week’ take over is already announced this week? June 1?

    HAHAHAHAHA

    Dream on lads. no announcement or confirmation anytime soon. at least a few months away from confirmation.
    stop trusting the weekly ‘end of next week’ announcements.

    get real.

    Don’t do it to yourself pal. I slipped and let my expectations rise the day before yesterday, only to be disappointed.

    Best advice be patient, I know it’s a terrible word but it’s the most important word.

    It’s happening mate just stay positive.

    Everyone knows (Journalists/media) Thats it’s unofficially Passed the tests

    Hence why George Caulkin / Pete Graves are saying ‘officially’ it’s still with the premier league

    The chronicle (sorry yes I know) the premier league do not announce the tests have been passed it’s up to the buyer / seller

    Neil Custis – Knows it has passed (again unofficially)

    This is why it all went wild in Saudi as the consortium have been given the nod that it’s passed

    Now we have to wait for money transfer and final sign off

    Something very ominous about hearing the same thing week after week after week, in another week it will be announced……

    It doesnt feel like the PL are still doing their tests it feels like people are coming up with excuses to delay the announcement for whatever reason.

    I expect it could be announced any time in the next week or two that’s today or weeks away. I dont believe these jun 1st dates I think it’s all papers making stories up.

    If the article in the Daily Star about “Bot’s” infiltrating Newcastle supporters twitter conversations to attack Ms Cengiz is accurate, it blows apart the basis of Jonathan Liew’s article in the New Statesman. I’m not sure the Daily Star article is accurate though.

    =============================================
    one of the rare few who could see through all the BS. Wait for next week and you will start hearing the next ‘end of next week’.

    they are all playing the guessing game knows nothing.
    i’d say we are atleast 2-3 months away from any confirmation. the tests has not passed and it may still be rejected.

    Re the takeover. I was a bit cheesed off last night , like you , about the constant delays in the announcement but having thought about it, and some crack with some posters on here , i think 1st June makes sense. If it is,nt sorted by then, i will be concerned

    Just a fan, I ain’t been saying much about rafa. Decent chance he will come back. I’d prefer different but I’m open about it and he fits the fans etc. There are positives and negatives as others have said. It feels like he fits the club though and I actually don’t agree with the idea that going back is always bad. If we were in the championship it would sem like that, but this will be a totally different feel.
