“Absolute joke”, “Soul destroying”, “Giving up” – So many Newcastle fans fume at takeover news

The prospective takeover of Newcastle United by a Saudi-backed consortium has hit a new snag this week after the Times reported that “significant political obstacles” are holding up the sale – and supporters have been reacting to the news on Twitter.

One MP, Giles Watling, has called for a select committee to hold an evidence session on the Saudi-based piracy of British sport, which includes Premier League football.

If these reports are true, then it’ll be a little while longer before the deal gets ratified and officially confirmed.

It is thought that the takeover is worth around £300m and will be heavily funded by Mohammed bin Salman and the country’s Public Investment Fund alongside PCP’s Amanda Staveley and the Reuben brothers.
