Alan Shearer Now Doubtful Of Newcastle Takeover – But The Gutless Premier League Still Have To Make Their Decision



The latest on the takeover is that the Premier League want to know who will be running the day to day operations at Newcastle if they OK the takeover bid, launched by Amanda Staveley.

They say there is a lack of clarity on who exactly will be running the club.

The league now wants to know who will have ‘ultimate responsibility’ at Newcastle.

Well, the owners will be the Saudi Public Investment Fund, since they have put in 80% of the money towards the £300M bid accepted by Mike Ashley.

The news has been that Amanda Staveley would become CEO, at least in the short-term, and the PIF governor, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, would become Chairman.

Alan Shearer – now doubtful on takeover

So it gets a bit murky and the latest issue seems to be with what role, if any, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman will play, since he is the Chairman of PIF.

And now on BBC’s Match of the Day, Newcastle icon thinks the takeover is now doubtful.

Shearer said it was simply not fair on everybody at Newcastle: manager Steve Bruce, the club and the fans.

He said it’s unfair that this whole saga has dragged on (and on and on and on) for so long.

Shearer said a final decision from the Premier League needs to be made, which we’ve all been saying for a long time now,

And he now doubts it will be approved because it’s dragged on for so long.

We will have to wait and see, but the Premier league seem to be hoping that something will turn up so they don’t have to make a decision.

That will not happen, and they must show some backbone and guts and made their decision.

And if it’s a NO then they will likely be sued by the Saudis, and maybe by both Mike Ashley and Amanda Staveley too.

It’s unconscionable they have taken since April 9th on the owners’ and directors’ test and still, there is no decision.

They have to do their job and made the decision and soon too!

It’s getting beyond being ridiculous.

    Bruce will be loving the praise he is getting but doesn’t realise that this will backfire when asking Ashley for money for players

    “Oh Brucey boy you are doing a great job better than that Rafa clown got you a few players on loan and a few youngsters from France to tide you over”

    I don’t know if Ed really rates Bruce as much as his many a$$ licking articles suggest, or whether he knows it will get a reaction, comments and clicks but I hope to be shot of this puppet very soon

    I’ve an awful feeling it’s not the premierleague who are ultimately causing the delay or standoff. The really annoying thing is none of us are ever going to know what the reason is.

    I haven’t lost all hope yet tbh, but it’s gone on stupidly long now I think it’s nearly time to face reality.

    Repost from previous not sorry

    Dear oh dear oh dear
    Third best performance?!!???!!
    “B”?????????
    As good as Rafa???
    More attacking???

    Wow Charlie. Wow…

    The Citeh debacles
    Thumped by Norwich
    Thumped by Leicester when trying non-Rafa setup
    Limping past TWO league one sides and WBA b-team in the cup
    Giving 4 points to Villa
    Needing insanely lucky results for points (Lejeune against Everton and Hayden against Chelsea for a start)
    Awful clueless football
    Defence gone backwards
    Way worse GD
    Some of the fewest goals scored
    Injury record abysmal
    No guidance to players during games

    The water breaks after restart really showed him up – opposition in a group/huddle/circle with their manager giving advice/orders/observations, then our lads wandering around separately no points from the “coach” no guidance nothing.

    Give over cabbage lickers please. . .

    BRUCE OUT
    TAKEOVER ASAP

    I hope that Amanda wins her court case against Barclays handsomely then licks her lips and announces “Right – now for the Premier League fight”.
    That might concentrate the mind of Mr Masters.

    I should also think that for every day the transfer window is open and we are prevented from doing transfer business should she win the case against The Premier League it will be even more costly.

    This control headline is utter bollox… it doesn’t take 16weeks.. the control part of ownership is one of the principle criteria of the fit and proper owners tests.. this article was in the telegraph last week and now bbc sport have decided to run it.. no coincidence the season is over and there’s nowt to write about

    why has Sheara all of a sudden start slating off the premier league with all his doom and gloom now the seasons over why did not try and put pressure on the league months ago he very well knows his best mate Bruce will be sacked when the P I F take over or is he trying to make it easier for the league to stop it

    . AFTER THIS IS OVER I THINK THERE SHOULD BE AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE PREMIER LEAGUES HANDLING AND PRACTICES OF SUCH THINGS AS TAKEOVERS

    While i think the who would ultimately run the club is a load of rubbish it is easy to see there is nothing to write about. However just for the sake of it : “They say there is a lack of clarity on who exactly will be running the club.
    Running or pulling the strings? Easy, to get the deal done ( painful to say but its a means to an end ) Charnley is the man to run the club! With the Reuben Bros as advisors and three fans carefully selected to act as a sounding board! Once the Saudis are legally rightful owners they can let Charnley have a few games and then move in who they want. Means to an end.

    The league now wants to know who will have ‘ultimate responsibility’ at Newcastle.: They should already know this so I think this is a load of B.S but for another means to an end the Reuben Bros could take the lead with Mandy and the Saudis could act as sleeping partners which they probably would do in any case as they have bigger fish to fry!

    Well, the owners will be the Saudi Public Investment Fund, since they have put in 80% of the money towards the £300M bid accepted by Mike Ashley. : Stating the obvious!

    The news has been that Amanda Staveley would become CEO, at least in the short-term, and the PIF governor, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, would become Chairman. : See above, it should be fluid to get approval if indeed this is what has been asked which I highly doubt.
    Just an exercise in problem solving which should only take the time it would take to have a cup of tea. Simples….:)
