Fans of Newcastle United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Liam Kennedy shared an article on the latest in the legal action regarding the club’s failed takeover bid.
According to the article on The Shields Gazette, the Premier League have ‘threatened Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd with legal action’ regarding a claim that the supporters group ‘leaked details of Newcastle United’s takeover arbitration case’.
However, the Gazette also report that the Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd’s legal team can ‘prove the top flight leaked information to the press’ after they gathered evidence of ‘tweets claiming discussions with a Premier League source’.
And, after Kennedy relayed parts of this report on Twitter, fans of Newcastle flocked to have their say on the matter, with many left furious by the Premier League’s actions.
Do you think the takeover will go through before the end of the season?
So, what exactly did these Newcastle United fans have to say about the report?
“If anything, it would suggest that the PL are rattled.”
“The @premierleague have a rule book which can be changed on a daily basis to suit their agenda”
“The big concern here is how blatantly corrupt the situation is, but it’s only us fighting to take the league back in to everyones hands”
“Just proves the @premierleague are bully boys as well as corrupt #PremierLeague #PremierLeagueIsCorrupt @ChiOnwurah @BorisJohnson”
“Well that’s a fine xmas greeting to #nufc fans from the EPL aka The Big6 Crime Family. #nufc”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Newcastle fans are livid with the Premier League, with many labelling the governing body as corrupt, while others stated their belief that the top flight’s actions prove that they are worried about Newcastle Consortium Supporters Ltd’s legal action against the league.
