Premier League CEO Finally Has Some Encouraging Comments On Takeover

We reported earlier today on what the Premier League CEO Richard Masters was saying to the Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee this morning.

And it wasn’t much, as he refused to be drawn on what was going on – saying things get complicated sometimes.

But now he has said something that points to the owners’ and directors’ test could be over if Saudi Arabia step up to the plate on the Premier League’s piracy concerns.

This is what Miles Starforth of the Shields Gazette is reporting:

It appears that Masters (shown above) is using the situation to finally clear up all the piracy and stealing of Intellectual Property in the KIngdom – and then he will allow the takeover to pass the owners’ and directors’ test.

If it is turned down, it will be a huge worldwide embarrassment for Saudi Arabia, so we are hoping they will do all they can to satisfy the demands of the Premier League.

And also follow through on whatever they promise, which is more to the point.

We also notice that Newcastle have agreed to pay Matty Longstaff £30K/week and meet the wages offered by Italian club Udinese.

Udinese have reportedly dropped out of the bidding for the 20-year-old North Shields midfielder.

We wonder if this is a clue that Newcastle have been told the takeover will go through?

Hope so.

    SB: “The lockdown has done him [ASM] good with those niggling hamstrings he had which was always a concern when you rely on your pace like he does. He was extremely tired yesterday. Four games in 11 days, I’m going to use the squad so we’ll see how he is this afternoon.”

    Sounds like ASM might be on the bench, probably sensible given his hamstring history with us

    Good to see Wilson out. He scored their only goal when we played them back in November. That was one of our better performances of the season and we kept their keeper busy without seeing too much of the ball.

    Anyone know if the team will bus it down from Newcastle? I always assumed so but with it being such a long trip wasn’t sure if they’d fly? I always thought it was a massive disadvantage having to travel for 6 hours to away matches at the other end of the country.

    Not sure if you saw my reply but cheers again mate for what you said there, and I completely agree again. The whole purpose of the comments is to share and discuss our thoughts about what’s going on at the club. We won’t always agree but we should be able to handle disagreements like adults.

    That’s a much more sensible option. I assumed they would as 6 hours on a bus wouldn’t do the legs any favours!

    The decision should have been given weeks ago. Only two questions to answer:
    1. Do they have the money;
    2. Has anyone been convicted of a crime in a court of law.

    The answer is yes they have the money and no one has been convicted of a crime. Job done.

    It only becomes complicated when you want it to be that way.

    What I’m saying your going on about bullying you have been exactly the same down the years. So you can say naff all.

    When I first posted the info I had you were disgusting to me and all I was doing was sharing info.

    Since then you have been fine but still no way to talk to someone and then you preach this shit

    That Scottish MP…what a dick.

    The PL were always going to take the opportunity to get the SA piracy thing under control….regardless if you think its directly related to the O&D test.
    PL would be been slated had they not done so….and I think they are definitely right to do it.
    Sounds to me though that it’s been worth it and this will now go though.
    Can you image if it got rejected now. SA would probably actively restart the piracy themselves.

    How does this smug prick get to decide our future? 13 years ago a bunch like him condemned us to the devastation of fatty & his thieving vile rule. Chelsea is approved for KGB/Oil, City is a convicted cheater Sheffield U goes through bought by Arab money but once a team North of Manchester is involved it gets very complicated he stated. Wish they had done such due diligence 13 years ago on fatty. How can this take so long? We at least are owed an explanation not the arrogance of silence

    Jail is a one off, made me laugh with his last comment on fish shops see # 12. A bit of positive marketing for our North Tyneside fisheries wouldn’t go amiss in these trying times. Besides our manager has put his name down for one. He needs to maintain his shape when he sods off. !!!
