A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from @RedRoseMichelle.

@RedRoseMichelle is a solicitor and a Newcastle fan, and throughout this whole saga, she has continuously provided Toon fans with professional opinions – a quick look through her timeline will reveal this.

To kick things off, who is this man from the 2009/10 season?

She believes that the Premier League are covering themselves legally before approving the proposed takeover of the Toon.

The reason she tweeted this was that one Newcastle fan suggested that the Premier League were taking their time to cover themselves legally before rejecting the takeover.

It comes as the latest update on the Toon’s prospective takeover suggested that the Premier League would look into calls to block the deal being concluded, according to Premier League chief executive Richard Masters.

However, it was the post from @RedRoseMichelle that attracted the attention of these Toon fans, with many happy to see some positivity around the takeover.

Are you reassured by this view?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Certainly, this positive tweet opened up the path for more Toon fans to state their belief that the takeover will go through.

Amanda Staveley’s Saudi-backed consortium paid a deposit to Mike Ashley in April after they agreed on a deal with the current Toon owner for the sale of the club.

Since then, the Premier League have been going through their required checks, but we are no further forward than we were in April.

There seems to be one major issue, which is the fact that the World Trade Organisation found a direct link between the Saudi government and a piracy station named BeoutQ.

This is said to have put the deal in serious doubt, and it seems that some Toon fans are still concerned about this and the takeover in general.

It is hard to say how much longer the Premier League will be after Richard Masters revealed in an interview with Sky Sports that there is no timescale for this deal.

Hopefully, though, there is not too much longer to wait for the Premier League’s decision.
