Newcastle Takeover Decision Soon – Maybe Imminent? – Consortium Hold Transfer Meeting



The headline that a decision on the takeover at Newcastle is expected soon has been a consistent headline since early April.

But of course, nothing has happened.

But the Premier League needs to make a decision soon, with the Premier League ending on Sunday and the transfer window opening the next day.

Next season is set to provisionally start on September 12th.

And it will be a busy summer for the Premier League sides, and we have to hope the coronavirus pandemic is kept under control and doesn’t affect next season.

That’s the hope.

For Newcastle, the break will be a time when the many injured players we have right now, will have a chance to get back to full fitness before a short preseason begins.

There’s a piece in the Chronicle today on the takeover and they say a decision is expected soon.

The consortium led by Amanda Staveley (shown above) is still confident the deal will be approved, but it has become a little murky since the Saudis banned all beIn TV signals from the country a couple of weeks ago.

But the acquisition has got a better chance of being approved than being turned down.

And it wouldn’t surprise us if they make a decision based on which one would give them less trouble.

If it is turned down the Saudi’s would no doubt sue the Premier League and so might Mike Ashley.

Ashley has given up on Newcastle, and he is off doing other things – like trying to save Sports Direct after the economic disaster the coronavirus has caused across the world.

The Chronicle are reporting that the consortium held a transfer meeting last Monday, and if that’s correct it doesn’t look like they are expecting the Premier League to turn the bid down .

It’s difficult to know what’s going to happen, but we still think the deal will be approved.

And although it’s taken a long time – far too long as we all know – all’s well that ends well – or so they say.

It would be a good time to announce the decision before next Monday when the transfer window opens.

And we have just beaten the champions-elect, Liverpool, at home in the final league game of the season.

🙂

If the deal is approved we’ll be dancing in the streets with the help of Martha Vandella.

What do you think?

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Liverpool On Sunday?

    From all the negative there is positivity of you look hard enough and read between the lines.

    You see Eze’s goal last night? Takeover or not we need to be all over him.

    Eze, Benrahma, Watkins possibly too if Brentford dont get up. im all for the soumare’s and others but would like us to get the odd young english talent in too – Eze can be a superstar if he wants.

    From previous, I think you’re probably right about Leeds. Like us, their fans still remember a time around 20 years ago when they were an ambitious club playing in Europe and sniffing around the top 4.

    The years in between have probably been even harder for Leeds fans than our own, but they seem to be heading in the right direction again, and now the clubis back in the Prem they’ll want to stay there.

    We could easily see them cup up and leapfrog us in a season or two if we don’t change our ways.

    i thought Brentford deserved to go up but wanted them not to so we had a chance for Benrahma. Even tho the reality is we will be outbid by a superpower like soton or maybe west Ham..

    They went from regularly taking places in Europe and reaching a champions league semi-final to competing in league one for 3 seasons, then spending a decade trying to claw their way out of the championship. They haven’t had top flight football for almost 20 years. We’ve had our troubles, but it’s not been anywhere near as bad as what’s happened at Leeds.

    Admittedly, I got off the bus for a quick wee in the layby (when the news of Fun88 sponsor came out).

    I’m now back on the bus with my seat belt on.

    Who’s got the bin bag for the empties?

    End of season
    No confusion
    All checks complete
    Red flags removed
    No political interference
    Directors all pass FA checks – they are fit and proper than most already owning clubs.
    Season Ticket renewals on the horizon
    Premiership safety confirmed – that has to be a condition of sale
    Sky money income from final league position confirmed
    It’s the accountants and legal teams now clearing the decks – Monday for final sign off, bank transfers etc
    Tuesday 28th July it is then.

    not forgetting
    Joelinton goes on a goal scoring spree against Liverpool

    Well I like to differ because I’ve lived through this and have the scars to show.

    Maybe a Leeds fan would say that but not me
