Liam Kennedy has been speaking on the latest edition of NUFC Matters about Newcastle United and the European Super League.
He said: “I’ve spoken to certain people who do believe that is the case.
“There is some train of thought that [thinks] is this a headache that Richard Masters doesn’t need?
“I will roll people back 12 months and think back to the same conversations we were having during the first lockdown and the return of football.
“Is the Newcastle United takeover another headache that Richard Masters doesn’t need? He did [decide it was something he could deal with], and the clubs were fine with it, and they kept going on with it. Will he feel betrayed having walked hand in hand with these clubs and doing a lot to placate them?”
Do you think Masters will back down?
No, probably be even more against the takeover
Yes, this could work in our favour
TIF Thoughts on Masters and the ESL…
The Premier League strongly rejected the idea of a European Super League, and it could be argued that Richard Masters might not trust the owners and the chief executives who were behind this scheme.
If that is the case, then could he be swayed to let the Toon’s takeover through, given the money that PIF have?
It is certainly an interesting question, and given that the club and the Premier League are locked in a legal battle, it will be interesting to see if this whole ESL debacle softens the league’s stance on the Toon’s takeover.
