Report Predicts A Transfer Season Like No Other



If this takeover finally gets Premier League approval, this summer’s transfer window could be one of the most exciting in Newcastle United’s history.

The influx of funds from the Saudi-backed consortium could see Steve Bruce, or our next manager, flush with cash to start building the club towards a very bright future.

It’s not only the potential arrival of ambitious new owners at Newcastle that will make this summer window like no other. There’s also the ongoing situation with the coronavirus pandemic that will alter the way the next transfer season operates.

TalkSPORT has a report that claims the summer window could stay open until January to help clubs navigate what will be unknown waters when next season begins.


Clubs are expected to take a massive financial hit due to this pandemic, and the idea is to allow clubs extra time for spending as football returns to some sense of normalcy.

There’s still a lot to work out logistically with when the window opens and when next season begins. The length summer transfer window will largely depend on those discussions.

It was already agreed earlier this year to extend the deadline from the start of the season to late August/early September to keep the Premier League in line with other European windows.

Newcastle, if the takeover gets approved, should be at a significant advantage for next season. So we’re likely to not be affected too much with how the next window looks.

If it is extended to the end of the year, we suppose it’ll give our prospective new owners plenty of time to get in some top additions to help take the club forward.

    The number of times I seem to catch the last comment of a thread or just the page, is alarming at times 🙂

    Intriguing if that is approved and we have new owners. I believe in Karma and i believe we have suffered badly as supporters so maybe just maybe the planets will align and give us this amazing new era with fantastic opportunities like never before

    cleveleysbob, just been looking at the menu of Colman’s Seafood temple.

    Souffle Arnold Bennett! Wow, that’s a blast from the past, I’ll have that and seafood mixed grill please, washed down with a bottle of Chablis or Sancerre.

    Don’t think I’ll have much change out of £100 mind you.

    Micky, believe me you don’t. We share a starter, I usually go for “catch of the day” from the blackboard, been some great fish dishes, the Missus likes Lobster Thermidor and we have a nice bottle of Chablis or Sauvignon Blanc. Pricy, but we only go maybe every 2nd Month, got to stretch out the pension 🙂

    If the EPL see the decision as being based on the flip of a coin, then common sense and business acumen says earning favour where there’s more revenue available.

    @lesh: Could have sworn today, but just checked and it’s tomorrow. No clue on what time, though.

    Watch the report drop, and we get news next week that the Prem actually did focus 100% of their efforts on Project Restart, and the WTO report was never even a point of discussion.

    Me too, shielding and venture out only when absolutely necessary – as is walking the dog.

    In saying that, my Mrs, a new grandma, seems to be a little more cavalier than I when it comes to picnics with daughter and brand new and only grandson.

    However, there is an upside

    Thump,

    If it is tomorrow, we’ll hear nowt until next week, I’d guess. As I’ve said, the EPL’s legals’ll go through the WTO draft with a fine tooth comb, make there opinions know to the EPL approval committee or whatever which’ll flip its coin and inform NUFC of its decision.

    Frim there, the small matter of transferring to cash to Ashley then we can open the fizz.

    cleveleysbob, I used to like oysters than I had a bad one, now I just need to taste one and I throw up so will pass on that. More of a prawn cocktail and a Stella than oysters and champagne me – although I do like a Chablis.
