19 Premier League clubs meet but left disappointed after demanding action on Newcastle United
The meeting has now taken place, after the other 19 Premier League clubs called it to speak to the likes of Gary Hoffman and Richard Masters regarding the Newcastle United takeover.
A new report from The Mail late last night, revealed that during yesterday’s meeting Man Utd, Spurs and Everton were the most objectionable and vociferous. Whilst the likes of Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs have been longstanding opponents of the Newcastle United takeover as it threatens Champions League places.
Some of the clubs even had the audacity to say that their own supporters were upset and had pressured them to demand answers as to why the deal had gone through.
Apparently, the jealousy and hypocrisy shown by the main clubs complaining was quietly laughed at by some of the executive representatives of the other ‘smaller clubs’ in the meeting.
Some of them from outside the so-called ‘Big Six’ obviously recalling the recent ESL aspirations only months ago.
You couldn’t make it up.
As Corporal Jones would often say though in Dads Army – “They don’t like it up em.”
Anyhow, they were all informed by the EPL that the takeover was all legitimate and concluded…. and that all aspects of the Owners and Directors test had been satisfied.
I also read an article in the Liverpool Echo yesterday about how Liverpool fans are genuinely concerned that they will be one of the clubs most under threat by the last six days’ developments because apparently they are skint.
Well there we have it.
After finally getting our club back after being scoffed at for years and being labelled deluded by many…. literally hundreds of thousands of dummies up and down the country have been well and truly spat out.
There have even been calls on social media platforms, mainly from Man Utd fans….for the “Big 6” to re-engage in talks with Europe’s elite to pull away and form a ESL after all.
In the space of six days it seems the PIF, PCP Capital Group and the Reuben Brothers have changed the landscape of football in this country forever.
I’m enjoying every minute of this lads and lasses.
You see, apart from four fantastic seasons under King Kev in the 1990s, and then a few more with Sir Bobby not long after, my whole general experience of being a Newcastle United supporter for all these years has been one of general disappointment.
I was too young to enjoy the pleasure of our 1969 Inter City Fairs Cup)…but I am not too old yet hopefully to enjoy what is going to be the best years of all our lives, here’s hoping.
It keeps getting said that everyone will hate us.
Bring it on I say, because I hope they do…and I will not care a jot.
Revenge is, as they say, a dish best served cold. So what better place for the Toon to start off this magic carpet ride from Arabia, than at St James Park on Sunday, as the cold and dark North Eastern nights begin to creep in…..against the whinging Daniel Levy’s Spurs?
