Don’t Dismiss Henry Mauriss Bid – He May Yet Be Newcastle’s Saviour



It’s strange that some fans are reacting negatively to Henry Mautiss’ bid he put in yesterday – said to be £350M to buy Newcastle.

We had always thought the Saudi-backed bid was for £300M since that was widely reported, but that may not be the case, and there’s some news that the bid is more likely to be around £340M.

And it could well be that’s what Maurisss is also bidding for Newcastle.

The £300M was set in place back in late March when the news broke about the Amanda Stavely consortium trying to buy Newcastle, and it’s been long and torturous since then – but what’s new?

That’s about 12 weeks of utter torture for Newcastle fans, but all’s well that ends well.

Or so they say.

🙂

Here’s some information on the fee today for Newcastle that from Luke Edwards at the Telegraph.

And we’re not going to criticize in any way the Henry Mauriss bid, because he has said he wants to do what the Fenway Sports Group did for Liverpool after they bought them for £300M back in October 2011.

That cannot be bad, and his ambitions for Newcastle are very much in line with those of the Amanda Staveley Group.

What we don’t know is how much he will invest in Newcastle over the next three years.

We know that figure is £300M with the Saudi-backed consortium and that information will have to be presented to the Premier League as part of the owners’ and directors’ test.

Here’s another of Luke Edward’s tweets, which we agree with.

In fact, Newcastle looks to be in a reasonably safe position for a takeover.

If Amanda’s bid fails (we don’t think it will), then Henry Mauriss will immediately spring into action and hopefully can get the papers to the Premier League quickly.

In his case, it really is expected for the owners’ and director’s test to take only 3 weeks.

Honest.

🙂

    Bruce has more chance of keeping his job with Mauriss than PCP/PIF
    Bruce is mates with Luke edwards

    Its not rocket science to see the motivation to Luke’s tweets..

    VICKIDINO – I think that article is just a summary of Tuesday’s WTO report from a very biased Saudi perspective – I don’t think there is anything new – although I’m happy to be corrected.

    How can Ashley supposedly ask Mauriss for a £5M deposit when he has taken £17M off PIF and the deal is legally done and awaiting PL approval.

    Utter bollix.

    Oh Ed!!

    We’ll let you off with this one nonsense story (just this one!!)

    Luke Edwards has been like a petulant child recently and this story is clearly a Qatar fabrication.

    UP THE SAUDI MAGS!!

    I’ve said similar before and I’ll say it again. There are a small number of good journalists worth listening to. These were the ones I sadly blindly ignored when I got caught up in the BZG story.

    Caulkin is sceptical of Mauriss. Henry Winter stated “I don’t know them” there is practically no onlibe profile/information about the guy. The whole story stinks.

    Ed please give this Mauriss lad a break. I think like me many of us are not interested and only want the Saudi takeover to go through before we can even contemplate another tortuous takeover saga happening.

    @ED The stuff was trotted out to appeal to the fans – not MA – who probably knows nowt about it;

    An apple pie full of Liverpoolery goodness with lashings of Rafa sauce.

    Can’t stand Edwards, has always been negative re – the Saudi takeover and he is way too close to Bruce to be objective. Although I do I accept Jib is right when he says we only hear what we want to to hear.

    lesh,

    You apparently believe this nonsense about ‘greedy’ MA trying to trouser £5M from another bidder.

    That’s right up there with some of toon22’s Jackanory stories.

    Read in interesting tweet this morning claiming that Mautiss was close allies with BeIN sports and was actively bidding for the rights to the advertising for the 2022 WC. Not sure of accuracy but paints an interesting picture…

    Sunday’s game confirmed free on Pick. Glad about that, still not giving SKY any more money until MA’s gone, and can’t bring myself to stream illegally (sorry lads).

    Can’t wait for confirmation, so I can buy NUFC stuff again, go to matches, even subscribe to SKY Sports, feels like I’ve been punishing myself in private campaign to not fund anything that can get back to MA’s pocket. Trouble is, he’s buying up so many brands and high street operations, I’ll have to stay in quarantine for ever to avoid the fat ****!!! 🙂

    @Gothmog’s just saw that UEFA have confirmed they have relaxed the FFP rules.

    I don’t really understand what it means but I’m pretty sure we can announce the takeover and buy the league now!!

    In terms of “hearing what we want to hear” I agree. So many tweets lauded when they’ve had phrases like “confident” “imminent” “no red flags” and “no obstacles”

    Covid and project re-start has likely been a factor in the delay but how can you take these tweets at face vaule given the length of time the process has taken?

    I thought that the SU defence looked a bit sus and a heavy dose of AC would be very effective against them.

    AV were the better team on the night but happy to see them not win!
