Some Newcastle fans lash out at Premier League after organisation granted extension in appeal
Some Newcastle United fans were lashing out at the Premier League after the latest update regarding the club’s potential takeover emerged.
The league’s governing body was given more time to the club’s appeal to the Competition Appeal Tribunal over the Geordies’ collapsed takeover. CAT president the Hon Mr. Justice Roth has granted the governing body an extension up until the 11th of June.
Anger ensued from Mike Ashley and Amanda Staveley’s largely Saudi-funded consortium after the organisation made the parties wait more than 17 weeks as they conducted their owners’ and directors’ test. After such a lengthy waiting period, the bid collapsed as the takeover party withdrew its bid.
The appeal concerning the collapse of the bid is set to be heard in July of this year, according to court documentation.
It seems there is delay after delay without proper reasonining from the Premier League, who seem to be doing everything in their power to stop the proposed takeover by the Saudi backed consortium.
The process has caused mass confusion in the northeast and the sooner a resolution is reached the better for supporters of the club.
Here is how fans reacted to the news…
Why are they trying their utmost to STOP this takeover?

@premierleague know they did wrong.Masters held a meeting with the big 6 owners to stop this takeover because Newcastle would become richest club in the world.Yet Burnley passed no problems despite the new owners having no money.

The net is closing on Masters and Hoffman. They are running scared

The more you learn about this, the worse it stinks on the part of the Premier League. It's the typical corporate approach of ignore, smear and frustrate and eventually the other side will give up and drop it.
It's also a common tactic from a party that knows it's guilty.

More time for them to scurry away and hide. https://t.co/lRggUnjPsO
