Lots of Newcastle United fans have been venting their frustrations over a tweet to emerge regarding their legal battle against the Premier League.
The Toon have taken on an anti-competition case against the Premier League, with their proposed Saudi-backed takeover hitting the rocks last summer.
Will this proposed takeoever eventually happen?
Speaking on the legal battle between the club and the Premier League, journalist Simon Zekaria tweeted out some of the key points he has established ahead of the upcoming case.
“Key takeaways: PL will try to torpedo NUFC antitrust claim. PL will argue PL clubs bound my membership rules to resolve disputes in confidential arbitration. PL eager to keep substantive details of Saudi takeover out of open court,” he tweeted.
What did these Toon fans have to say?
“Going off this and this kid has been a decent follow it doesn’t look good.”
Suggestions did emerge earlier in the week indicating the Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is still confident of winning the legal battle against the Premier League and of the proposed takeover going ahead.
Matters on the field have not got off to a good start for Steve Bruce’s side, as they sit third-bottom in the Premier League table and it seems this tweet has not helped to boost the mood among the Toon fans.
