Project Big Picture Can Only Help Newcastle’s Takeover Efforts



The big clubs showed their hand in Project Big Picture by naming nine clubs who would have extra powers in the league.

We’re sure they made it nine and not six, to try to camouflage what they were really trying to do – give even more control to the top six clubs in the league than they already have.

And one the things they brought up in Project Big Picture was they could veto any deal for a takeover of a Premier League club that the PL had OK’s in their owners’ and director’s test.

Only 6 of the 9 clubs needed to vote to stop any takeover.

The gall of it all!

There were whisperings this year that Liverpool and Tottenham were getting at Premier League CEO Richard Masters to block the Amanda Staveley led takeover of Newcastle.

When the consortium pulled out of the deal, after 17 very long and tedious 17 weeks in the owners’ and directors’ test, Ms. Amanda Staveley said the top Premier League clubs were against the deal from the start.

And the suspicion is that Masters bowed to their wishes, although he has denied this,

After the deal seemingly collapsed, but without the Premier League formally turning down the bid, this is what Amanda Staveley (shown above) said:

“The other clubs in the Premier League didn’t want it to happen,”

Project Big Picture has revealed the thoughts of the big six clubs, and that can only help Nick De Marco QC and Shaheed Fatima QC, who are representing Newcastle United and Mike Ashley in trying to get the deal done.

We think we have a very good case if it eventually goes to court .

One of the reasons it didn’t go through is that the big six clubs want to keep up their monopoly of the Premier League.

While it’s good for them it reduced the competition in the league, so that way it’s not good for the Premier League.

That’s one of Richard Masters’ responsibilities, yet the signs are that he bowed to the big clubs, and we haven’t yet heard a good valid reason why he didn’t allow the deal to go through.

That may suit Masters but if he’s taken to court that is a big weakness in the PL’s case.

We may be wrong on this – but we still think this deal will eventually go through.

    Froggy, peter5198

    Jib’ll continue posting as long as he feels he can get away with it.

    Although he’s really trying to adopt different language and styles when he posts as an alt, he forgets now and again and posts the odd Jibism, let’s his slip show!

    Softly softly catchy monkey. His arrogance’ll be his downfall – again.

    The thing is no matter what alt jib uses he can’t help but be jib like and it’s always obvious.

    You can go under cloak and dagger for a good bit but in the end you can’t help but be yourself

    Mund,

    Could actually be a whole foot.
    There is obviously stuff going on and these leaks are only going in our favour.
    De Marco being involved is a massive for me. Let this play out behind closed doors and see what happens

    Excellent to have locked ASM.

    Now, they (and he) must work to keep him fit. Or to up his fitness.Too many niggles for such a young player.
