A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from MP Liz Twist, who has sent a letter to Richard Masters in which she claims fans feel ‘deeply frustrated’ at the lack of ‘courtesy’ and ‘respect’ the Premier League has shown them during the ongoing takeover saga.
She then asks the Premier League for ‘transparency‘ regarding the whole process, and this has drawn the attention of a lot of Toon fans who are pleased to see this action taken by this MP.
So, what did these Newcastle fans think of this post?
Bravo ? we deserve our takeover too 🙂

Are you pleased with this?
Yes, it is good to have this support
No, it means nothing
The proposed takeover of the Toon by PCP Capital Partners, PIF, and the Reuben brothers was withdrawn in July after the Premier League failed to reach a decision on the deal.
The group then tried again behind closed doors, but that also was unsuccessful.
Now the takeover is with the legal teams as it was made public in November that Newcastle were in a legal battle with the Premier League over the failed takeover.
This post continued to draw in Toon fans.
Can’t help but think this letter will be met with yet more silence and @premierleague arrogance!

It is good to see that this MP is putting more pressure on the Premier League and most Toon fans are happy she has done this.
We will be intrigued to see if this does lead to anything from the Premier League.
