Newcastle Takeover – Premier League Slammed By Pundit


The Premier League is being slammed today by correspondent Noel Whelan, who has talked to the Football Insider in what they call an exclusive.

The owners’ and directors’ test for the Newcastle takeover, led by Ms. Amanda Staveley, started on April 9th so it’s 12 weeks this Thursday!

That’s a long time and surely the Premier League has gathered enough information with which to make their decision?

But apparently not.

Amanda Staveley – leading the takeover

There are cries (demands?) going out from the likes of Alan Shearer and Steve Bruce for some clarity on the situation – so far to no avail.

This is what Whelan, the former Coventry City striker,  said today:

“It has been dragging on too long now,” “It cannot be good for the board or the manager.”

“There is no reason why it should have gone on this long. The test should have been concluded by now.”

“Steve Bruce needs to know where he stands. So does the club, Mike Ashley and everyone else concerned.”

“There is no reason why it should have dragged on this long. Everyone wants it done and dusted so they know where they stand.”

“The Premier League needs to get on with it.”

Most people are wondering what’s going on behind closed doors, so we don’t know whether it’s going to be approved or turned down.

But at least to us, this is showing the Premier League to be indecisive – extremely indecisive.

Make a decision – one way or the other.

Please.

    From the Guardian: “The pop star announced last month, after weeks of speculation, that he was teaming up with businessman Ryan and their takeover of the League One club was expected to be formalised on Friday. But efforts to raise enough cash for the deal – through the Crowdfunder.co.uk website – have faltered with only £757,796 of the £2m target raised by Thursday’s deadline, from 514 backers”

    There was a quite clear reason for the failure of the Doncaster takeover

    I know. I don’t have an issue with it and I’ve done it myself. What I’m saying is don’t do this and then kick off at somebody else for posting non-footy related stuff as that is just hypocritical. I’m not saying Munster shouldn’t do it: I’m saying they shouldn’t kick off at others for posting non-football content and then do it theirself

    I have to say I’ve listened to to that link, posted on the previous blog, a couple of times and I don’t think Masters is sending any cryptic messages – he’s just trying to be as guarded and non-committal as possible.

    Howay man, you arent an idiot like toon22.

    Its clear he said he wanted the process to be concluded shortly, if not us then what process was he talking about? If you watch the video then its clear its with them for approval.

    It’s all about interpretations again, some of the online news groups are using the word “decision “ I believe the correct wording was “conclude” as in ……..Conclude the process shortly !

    To me it confirms the process is continuing, I don’t think anyone can dispute that ?
    To me it confirms approval hasn’t been refused !

    Respect

    Don’t you understand now mate he is doing it all
    on purpose, isn’t there alarm bells ringing in your head?

    He goes against the flow in 99% of topics which says one thing loves an argument and putting his long paragraphs up on why everyone is wrong
