A whole host of Newcastle United fans are furious on Twitter with Luke Edwards’ latest takeover claim.

Mike Ashley is currently set for two separate legal battles against the Premier League over the coming months to try and get the previously collapsed takeover of Newcastle, which was being led by Amanda Staveley, pushed through.

Will Newcastle have new owners next season?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

This week is when Newcastle fans may get some sort of news of where their club stands in terms of the likelihood of getting closer to beating the Premier League in court, but with both parties merely awaiting to hear whether or not the anti-competition claim will go ahead, Edwards has attempted to pour cold water on the idea that this is indeed a big week for Newcastle.

A lot of are furious on Twitter with Edwards’ latest takeover claim.

What have these been saying?

“If the Premier League appeal the decision it’s an utter disgrace after the delaying tactics they have already had us subject to.”

The point is why do they keep appealing and delaying. This is something regardless of being kicked further down the road even if buyers walk. The supporters will never ever be silenced. Might as well get it sorted now. Where’s legal finance coming to prolong the case? #nufc

@Caz8maw

There won’t be an appeal in competition law. No judge worth his salt would allow that to happen. Do your research mate and speak to a competition solicitor #nufc

“This whole appeal is a total sham. As someone who has followed takeovers closely for over 20 years, getting the courts to overrule almost never happen. I simply cannot believe how many journalists give this story so much space when it’s a big nothingburger. Ain’t gonna happen.”
“Most negative man about”
“What a boring man you. Just give up.”

With so much still to come in terms of Newcastle’s potential takeover, which has been rumbling on for well over 12 months, this may have been a reason as to why Ashley failed to sanction more than one senior signing in the summer.

All-time top Premier League appearance maker for Newcastle, but how many did he make?

The will be desperate, not just for this takeover to go through, but for any form of takeover to happen, as Ashley’s tenure has failed to bring about many positives.

The club’s highest finish is fifth, and other than that, it’s been filled with relegations, while even at one point, a court case heard that the club were ‘repeatedly and intentionally misleading the press, public and the fans of Newcastle United‘.
