Many Newcastle United fans were furious over the latest twist in the tale regarding the club’s long-winded takeover talks with the Saudi-based Public Investment Fund (PIF).
An agreement was made back in April for a £300m purchase of the Tyneside club but has been severely delayed due to a number of facts.
One which was PIF’s alleged involvement in pirate television in the Middle East, which the World Trade Organisation (WHO) concluded that they played no part in but should have done more to prevent it from happening.
Will you still support NUFC if the takeover falls through?
No, I'll be done!
Now, after taking the appropriate measures to eradicate such activities in their kingdom, the Daily Mail has revealed that this has further angered the Premier League which may cause more setbacks, with no communication from the league to the fans.
Because of this, supporters were left enraged by this and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he has “had enough”, while another added that all of these updates are making him “angry”.
Had enough of this now. @premierleague just need to sort it. Amateurs

Getting angry over this and using it to delay the decision truly shows that there are personal agendas at play. SA have been hammered for 14 weeks in relation to the takeover and they put there money were there mouth is and they still can’t win with the PL.

Premier League needs to just come out and say they’re working on it and when they’ll have a decision.
It’s not fair on fans or anyone who’s against the takeover the silence from the @premierleague

The league are getting angry over every little thing for literally no reason whatsoever. There’s no reason to delay anything for any longer. The league are the biggest babies going.

Richard Masters is a clown and regardless of the outcome of this he has shown to be out of his depth
