It’s all well and good that the Premier League say they will take as long as it takes to complete their owners’ and directors’ test on the Amanda Staveley led takeover attempt.
But not when it’s about to damage the club in the upcoming transfer window.
The league ends on July 26th and the transfer window opens the next day and lasts through October 5th.
So it’s extremely important that Newcastle know who the owner will be for next season so we can start bidding for players.
The players brought in and let go are different, depending on who the owners are when the summer transfer window opens up.
Amanda Staveley – leader of the consortium trying to buy Newcastle
The uncertainty on the takeover has already seemingly had an impact on Newcastle players, who don’t know if they will be part of Newcastle’s future or not until they know who the owners will be.
Why can’t the Premier League come to a decision, after they have been considering the deal now for over three calendar months?
If they were going to turn it down, they should have done it by now.
And if they were going to approve it, they should have done so by now.
If they are waiting for the Amanda Staveley group to withdraw their bid and let them off the hook, that’s not going to happen.
They shouldn’t be allowed to mess a club around and Newcastle need some answers quickly, and that’s been true for several weeks now.
They need to do their job and not act like weaklings: waiting for something to happen is never a good management ploy.
They need to be bold.
