A lot of have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by Sky Sports’ Bryan Swanson which shares footage from an interview that he recently conducted with Premier League chief executive Richard Masters. 

Swanson can be seen attempting to get some comments from Masters regarding the proposed Saudi-backed takeover of Newcastle United in this footage. Masters doesn’t offer a deal of insight into the takeover, as he states that “the takeover of football clubs is done via the owners’ and directors’ test”, which he goes on to explain is a confidential process. 

However, Masters does state that he doesn’t think that timing is an issue with regards to the takeover, stating that the Premier League doesn’t have “specific views about when these things need to be done by”.

Swanson’s tweet sharing this footage has caught the attention of many Magpies fans, who have been offering their views. Some Magpies fans criticised Masters’ claim that timing isn’t an issue, with one Newcastle fan stating that the club and its fans are “in limbo”.

Some Magpies fans praised Swanson for his questioning in response to the journalist’s tweet. 

Does a decision need to be made soon regarding this takeover?

YES

YES

NO

However, some Magpies supporters were more critical of Swanson and his questioning in response to this post. 

As per the Daily Mail, Newcastle United’s proposed new owners would be the wealthiest in the Premier League if this takeover is completed. With that in mind, it may be understandable if some Toon fans are getting impatient as they await confirmation regarding the completion of the takeover.
