A lot of United fans have flocked to a post from NUFC 360, which has relayed news from the Daily Telegraph concerning the proposed takeover of the Toon.

Starting with a relatively recent player. Who is this?

Jason Burt, who broke the initial story about Newcastle&8217;s proposed takeover by Capital Partners, PIF, and the Reuben brothers over a year ago, has released a new piece on the takeover

This follows on from claims that Mohammed bin Salman directly contacted Boris Johnson about the takeover, which the consortium has denied.

However, in his piece, Burt revealed that if the Toon’s ongoing arbitration case is successful, Richard Masters could be in trouble and could be forced to resign.

This has drawn the attention of these Newcastle fans.

I’d love for Masters to go down more than I’d love the actual takeover. They’ve successfully tainted it. The smear against our potential owners has been relentless. The same hacks that do it will want free entry to matches when De Marco wins and Ashley is gone.”

@IanArmitage

Faith in Nick he’s gonna decimate them”

@jchaytor16

The day him and Hoffman are gone the better the league will be.”

@craiggraham76

Do you want Masters to be sacked?

Yes, he is horrendous

Yes, he is horrendous

No, if he passes the takeover

No, if he passes the takeover

This post continued to draw in Toon fans who had their say.

Masters is out of his depth in his newish job he’s incompetent”

@BruceOut_

Hope Masters gets sacked”

@Mark14Robinson

Sounds promising it’s going to happen soon.”

It remains to be seen what happens with this arbitration case, but if Newcastle win, not only could they get their takeover, but they could force Masters out of his job, which has clearly pleased these Toon fans.
