There was a time a fair while ago when Bailey had a few Ashley exclusives. He used to write for someone more prominent but was presumably binned for a reason

 

He is / was mates with McClaren and Carr.

As someone from that part of the world, I just do not see this happening purely for the "save face" culture in Saudi Arabia. You say no to us and in spite we'll go for something bigger, better and shinier - we can afford it. This is normal there. When you see the likes of Qatar buying PSG, I wonder what Newcastle United offers that another similar club in the major leagues of this continent doesn't in terms of PR.

 

I think all these court cases would at very best lead to some compensations and I hope i'm really wrong and something more comes of it.

 

PIF having nothing to do with MBS is just about as Man City having nothing to do with the UAE royal family and those guys haven't been reported to chop a journalist to pieces either.

 

I would love to be proven wrong because there is no way this club is going to be lucky to come straight back after a third relegation.

The Saudi PIF do have interest in other clubs, with Inter being one of those to have come to their attention. The Milan club look to be available with their current Chinese owners moving away from football - despite the Nerazzurri claiming the Scudetto last season.

However, it is understood that this does not affect PIF's interest in Newcastle.

90min revealed last year that the sovereign wealth fund was keen to look towards the models adopted by a host of ownership groups around the world, such as City Group and Red Bull, who have a number of teams from different countries working under one umbrella organisation.

 

Edwards retweeted it hence me finding it, confidence is meaningless but anyone who wants to hear it, here you go 


Loves a bit of negativity trumpeting does Luke, no matter the NUFC subject

The only reason PIF are still wavering is that they want to be on the Premier League gravy train and we offer that only chance; as if this fails then they won’t be able to buy another English club for years, if ever.
 

The other leagues do not offer the same viewing figures or finances (most are struggling badly also), so I cannot see PIF switching their attention to other leagues until the arbitration (especially) and CAT cases play out. 


Just got to see the cases play out and even then there is no end date coming in the very near future for these either. Best just to switch off in the meantime as we can do fuck all else about it.

This. Unless it's Richard Masters or anyone else from the PL saying they are confident that the deal will go through or can be negotiated to let it pass, I don't have any confidence in anyone else's confidence.

The PL offers the biggest TV income and exposure for a football club in the world.

 

NUFC is the biggest club available in said league for a decent price, the potential to grow the brand and therefore profit is sizeable.

 

That’s why they want us and will ultimately succeed in doing so.

Think that “decent price” had nothing to do with it. It was Saudi Arabia after all. 
 

All points to a flogging a dead horse now anyway. Let’s hope Ashley gets his compensation and flogs us cheap.

They’re a public investment fund who operate for profit. The decent price compared to a top 6 club has everything to do with it.

You massively overestimate how much PIF want this deal. Everyone connected with PIF and well placed in Saudi say exactly that.

 

Amanda Staveley, aye. But PIF really aren’t as desperate as you suggest.

 

If they were, this deal would’ve been done by now.

The fact they are still waiting in the background waiting to complete and haven’t moved on, suggests they want this deal in this league.

 

How desperate they are I have no idea.

I think it's fair to say they aren't "desperate" for it and aren't sat in thr wings with baited breath as there's plenty of other deals on the table of more importance, diversity of portfolio and all that. However, it's also perfectly plausible that if the deal gets the green light by some miracle then they'll be back at the table as soon as they can. It's not over until all avenues are explored, it's not worth getting tied up over, best left to play out, but is definitely unfair on the club and fans as we're all left in limbo like a piece of driftwood clogging up the PL.

Last bit is important as the Premier League failed to knock back the takeover and have played the game of kicking the ball down the road ever since. The way they have acted over this takeover is a total disgrace resulting in one of its member clubs being left hanging and that clubs support being totally messed about.


If you think you have the rights to knock a takeover back, then do it instead of this joke of a timeline without making a decision. Arbitration could then have been carried out and concluded last year. It will be 2 year (maybe longer) for the legal cases to probably play out. 2 fucking years!!!

Not desperate at all.  They probably don't even think about this deal much.  If it happens, it happens.  If it doesn't, it doesn't.  Stavely is on it, out of sight, out of mind.

Fair summary, for the record I’ve never once made out they we’re desperate as insinuated above.

 

My take is that it’s a long term investment opportunity for them, with the added bonus of promoting their 2030 vision.

 

At the moment I believe they’re quite happy sitting in background watching this play out, if a better investment opportunity came along maybe they’d take it.

 

However, at the minute I’m of the strong belief this is still their preferred football investment and once a path is cleared they will be back like a shot

I agree with this. I think that could be the premier leagues undo-ing really, the fact that they couldn’t make a decision meant that they clearly didn’t have the confidence in their own rules or that they couldn’t find a legitimate reason to turn it down to placate whoever it was that was lobbying against it. The consortium had every right to refuse an offer or arbitration - the same way they had every right to have the rules in regards to their ownership of the club applied fairly and in a timely matter.

 

We’ll see what the CAT case brings, the more I think about it, the more I think the premier leagues defence of “well they’re already taking us to court over something else” won’t really hold much water.

Is it Wednesday we find out how much further in to the long grass this has been kicked?


 

Yup. 
 

My guess is as long and as far as they can do so without making it too obvious that they are royally butt fucking us. 
 

I rate they delay it another year.

It'll be next year, sometime after the other one and they'll just keep leapfrogging each other till the club suffers it's last death.
