It’s a Sunday, so there is some news on the Amanda Stevley takeover effort with the owners and directors test still active, and it has been for just over 100 days now.
George Caulkin said way back the Premier League got the takeover documents on Thursday, April 9th.
But over the last few weeks, things have gone quiet, and that may not be a bad thing.
The Chronicle are reporting on the state of play at the moment, with the summer transfer window about to open a week tomorrow, and that’s one day after the Premier League finally comes to an end.
The Premier League leadership and the clubs themselves have done so well to be able to finish this season.
And the UK seems to have the coronavirus under control, but it still raging over here in the US.
US Sports clubs will have a hard job going forward this summer with their seasons, with 75K new cases a day now, compared to the UK now having less than 1K new cases a day.

The Chronicle report that the would-be owners are not “deterred” by the long wait, caused by the Premier League dragging their feet on the owners’ and directors’ test.
Thye have been in the test around 102 days now and counting.
The Saudis are said to be absolutely determined to be successful with their acquisition of Newcastle United.
So that’s a positive.
There’s nothing really new in the Chronicle report on the takeover today.
But we suppose it’s good news, with the season coming to an end next Sunday, that there could still be a successful end to Amanda Staveley’s takeover attempt.
That would be terrific.
Let’s hope that happens.
Maybe next week?
What do you think?
