Disturbing claims that the Saudis are guilty party when it comes to the non-supply of evidence

What is happening at our beloved Newcastle United? I fear nothing very much.

As far as close season lows go, this takes some beating.

A perfect time for season tickets to go on sale!

I read a couple of very disturbing exclusives this morning, both more or less saying the same thing and I hate to admit it, the claims seem plausible.

I don’t think anyone is naive enough to think the recent adjournment of arbitration was all down to the nasty old Premier League, after all, both sides claim that the decision was mutual.

The reports claim that the Saudis are the guilty party when it comes to the non-supply of evidence and that they are losing interest in a Newcastle United takeover. Could it be they can’t prove a break in the link between the authorities and Public Investment Fund because there is one?

Without boring you with what you may have read already, the exclusives also claim that the situation has been known for some time and it is a desperate attempt by the British part of the consortium and Mike Ashley to keep things going.

Enough of the Newcastle United takeover speculation, we’ve had enough of that over the last 15 months and none of it has come true. Another glaring claim is that this limbo suits Mike Ashley as it gives the perfect excuse to scrimp and save.

I won’t be buying a 2021/22 Newcastle United season ticket but still love the club. Am I bothered by the mess, yes I am very much so. I even hate watching them on television but I am focused on getting the club back to where it belongs for others. My family for one.

Losing players for the sake of a million or two when Manchester United pay over £70 million for a young England prospect makes me feel physically sick. What has this all come to?

Outbid by a French side for a mediocre midfielder and frightened off a centre back by the mighty Brentford – it is hard to take. Norwich, one of our other relegation rivals have brought  in eight players and counting.

It’s now time for the consortium and Mike Ashley to become transparent, never mind Arbitration and the Premier League. At least they are bound by current rules, we have no excuse. Relegation stares us in the face and the season hasn’t even started.

Mike Ashley needs to open his wallet and be honest, after all, he got over £130m in prize money last year. If I were you, I wouldn’t consider buying a season ticket until the whole situation becomes clearer.

It’s your call of course, I’ve had my day, though we were generally poor then as well.

League Division 2: Newcastle United 0 Cardiff City 4, welcome to St James Park.
