The bid from PCP Capital Partners, PIF, and the Reuben brothers to buy Newcastle was withdrawn in July.
Kennedy claims that the last few weeks have been the “calm before the storm” and that Ashley’s legal team have got their “guns all aimed at the Premier League.”
This has drawn the attention of these Newcastle fans who are happy with this update.
So, what did these Newcastle fans think of this update?
Sounds like the lawyers are going to have a field day with the PL ??#Nufc

Go get them! I like the sound of all guns pointing at the corrupt @premierleague they’ve treated us and this takeover differently to any other. Allowed outside influence, no asked for it, leaks, letters etc etc this is a winner for @nickdemarco_ and us fans desperate for better

The “positive update” that I talked about earlier in the week.

Are you excited by this update?
Yes, it is good news
No, this means nothing
Kennedy also insists that this legal action is not just for compensation and its aim is to force through the takeover.
This post from Kennedy continued to draw in many Toon fans.

Another top quality piece of journalism @LiamJKennedy23 there are that many dots on the page now the page is turning black over white. It seems the stars are beginning to align for the Geordie’s #NUFCTakeover ?????

It is unclear what this legal action will achieve, but it does seem like it has progressed, and Ashley is trying everything he can to get this sale of the Toon completed.
It will be intriguing to see what happens next, but it is clear that many Newcastle fans are excited about this update.
