A lot of Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the latest claim to emerge following Wednesday’s CAT hearing. 

The hearing between St James Holdings Limited and the Premier is expected to indicate whether the league acted improperly with regards to its handling of the bid to take over Newcastle, which collapsed in July 2020.

On Friday, journalist Simon Zekaria tweeted: “I have learnt that SJHL’s competition claim alleges that beIN Sports pressurised the PL to block the sale of @NUFC while negotiating a three-year rights deal to 2025.”

took the Premier to the CAT hearing in an attempt to obtain damages suffered by the Tyneside club due to his beliefs in the blocking the proposed Saudi-based takeover.

Toon fans flooded to Zekaria’s tweet to share their excitement at the latest claim to emerge in the Tyneside club’s hopes of the proposed takeover getting over the line.

Newcastle fans have been left in limbo for well over a year now, with the PIF consortium’s reported interest in purchasing the Tyneside club initially being reported last summer.

The arbitration case between the club and the Premier is set to begin on 3rd January 2022, and it seems these Toon fans are beginning to grow in confidence ahead of the case.
