Newcastle Issue Brief Statement On Postponement Of Arbitration Until 2022



Newcastle United have confirmed that their pending arbitration case against The Premier League has been postponed until early 2022 after a meeting on Monday.

Here is the full statement from the club:

The parties attended a hearing today in the case between Newcastle United and the Premier League.

The main hearing of the arbitration has regrettably now been adjourned until early 2022 due to issues with the disclosure of evidence.

The parties will be making no further comment at this time.

Newcastle’s arbitration case against the Premier League was supposed to get underway this month. The timeframe of the proceedings could have lasted well into the season. Now this club will remain in limbo almost indefinitely as no firm date for the arbitration has been set.

Mike Ashley has been reluctant to fund Steve Bruce’s summer business with a reported budget of just £10m as he hopes to get the Saudi-backed takeover resurrected. We are starting to fall well behind the rest of the pack in our preparations for the coming campaign.

This is another in an endless string of delays and shenanigans that are threatening this club’s ability to compete in the league. Now that a final decision on this takeover is not likely to happen until near the end of this season, Mike Ashley has to open up his wallet and back this club.

    Fuming!! Corrupt sons of bitches! They are taking the piss and hoping we get relegated before they make a verdict. If we get relegated under this rudderless regime even if we win the case it will mean jack shit as the PIF will not bw interested anymore by then.

    Didn’t Richard Masters back in January allegedly say this matter would be resolved quickly?

    More smoke then from the EPL chimney.
    Time that the Met. sent in the Fraud Squad.

    Now. As in tonight.
    It’s all very like Watergate.
    Nixon was a Richard as well, so is Keys.
    Other names are available.

    No one saw this coming?

    All you’ve done for a year is harp on about delaying tactics and possible criminal actions on the part of the PL, no one saw this coming? Really????

    This is what happens when you call a organisation you’re trying to join corrupt or insinuate it.

    Nufc and the Consortium have made things extremely awkward for the PL and made plenty of accusations.

    Did no one expect the PL to retaliate or fight back?

    There was more than Mund. There’s no one more wanted it to happen than me, What about Bob, and quite a few more that were positive. And for some posters raring to go full blast, to get Mund to respond, get on the to the other posters as well. What was posted early was well out of order,

    The Pif just need to log a new offer structured to meet EPL guidelines then the Premier League can not deny the takeover.
    Even if it takes a few months its a done deal so no need for arbitration.

    Solved.

    Not at all.

    I don’t care what you claim you think you know.

    You say one thing then another, you’re more contradictory than Munster and that’s some feat.

    Bullshit mixed with truth sums you up, you should have that as a cocktail named after you.

    Its obvious You’ve been desperate for bad news despite your positive outlook, gives you the opportunity to attack posters and claim they didn’t want a takeover, there’s been signs of it for months

    The only people that didn’t see something like this coming are the ones with their heads in the sand buried by the pied piper of BS

    When i said we will soon find out about the arbo decision i didn`t expect it just 2 hours later.
    Well, there you have it, another shit show next season and , as far as i can see, for another few years at least.
    The PL now seem impenetrable and no doubt they will be getting plastered, giving the thumbs up to the cabal at the clubs expense.
    That`s me done with this shit. The PL are the exact opposite of everything football stood for.
    Anyone think the PIF will still be hanging around in February?
    I`m taking bets now.

    Season Tickets

    Last season was refunded.
    Next season monthly payments start end of July.
    Imagine the furore if everyone starts cancelling if (when) Bruceball returns.
    The vemom against the slimy six will be wonderful to behold.

    At least that proves once and for all Sean Casey is full of poop. This was his post over the weekend which, thank god, was shared with us on here.

    There will be some sort of information out this week that will reassure fans that this takeover will get done. #nufc

    Agreed Carlton
    Ive only mention Mund due to the last year of discussions weve had

    Yes its not the end of the world but you hoenstly cant try and spin this as positive

    We have got the clown as a manager
    Our best players looking at leaving before this news
    An owner who has stated hes not interested and wont put any of the clubs cash into actually running the club
    The only positive thing is the coach they dragged in to save us last season

    You can see the whole thing turing into a slow motion train wreck

    And as much as it pains msot of us were going to have to sit and watch it all unfold, in all of its horror, from this point onwards

    At best all i can think is theyve needed to do something to stop the cat
    This is their big stick
    They want one to go away so the other one becomes irrelevant

    Thats all the made up hope i can come up with

    There will be no one coming out to explain this as it’s all confidential
    There is nothing to explain it’s all there – postponed until next year.
    This is not going to happen because there are parties that dont want it to.
    End of the road for me I’m afraid after 60 years I’ve finally come to the conclusion its just not worth the hassle any more

    Hopefully we actually sign some players now at least, can’t use the excuse of waiting to see what happens with the takeover as that’s a long way down the road now.

    Personally I think it’s the perfect time to speculate, it’s been good enough for others for well over a year.

    I’m not gutted, I expected something like this.

    I don’t believe it will get to 2022.

    This is end game, both sides have postured for a while.

    Pl wants CAT stopped, Ashley wants OD pushed through.

    Seems they now both have each other over a barrel.

    If there’s going to be a resolution it will be very soon or it WONT happen at all.

    I see this as the beginning of the end, which the Clun needs to move on, one way or the other.

    All we need to know is what this means for the future of the takeover.

    Are the consortium and all parties still interested? Will they wait?

    Staveley and Ghodoussi will definitely say something on the matter.

    There is no point of arbitration if the full consortium have left the table.

    One positive of the restrictions being lifted is there will be some sort of crowd at home games , 25k maybe, any of TFG`s bullshit remarks about the club or it`s fans will be sharply vented towards him.
    If we start poorly i think Bruce will walk, either that or he will get lynched.
    Can`t stand Bruce or his BS any longer, wtf have we done to deserve all of this.
