Lots of Newcastle United fans have been talking about the latest tweet from Mark Douglas that recently emerged on social media.
Do you think Pallotta should try buying Newcastle?
Douglas’ tweet concerned Pallotta and the idea of him taking over at St. James’ Park. Many Toon fans made their views clear about the American.
What do Newcastle fans make of James Pallotta?
“Not allowed sure unless it’s a top six club.”
“Errr no thanks.”
In another interview with The Athletic, Pallotta potentially hinted at an offer for Newcastle, before cutting off to say “I’m kidding” regarding the prospect of it.
Pallotta’s stint at Roma ended last summer and he was the Giallorossi’s owner for about eight years. His departure from the Stadio Olimpico was rather acrimonious, as he sold the club to fellow American billionaire Dan Friedkin.
Some Newcastle fans don’t like the idea of Pallotta owning their club and they’re making it very clear.
Roma legend Francesco Totti had been a big critic of the American and the club veteran said that Pallotta had tried to push everyone aside and he hardly visited the Italian capital for the club’s games. Pallotta was one reason for Totti’s departure (As per the Guardian).
These should be warning signs for Newcastle and because of that, it would be best for the Magpies to not be owned by Pallotta.
