    Fan Reaction: Newcastle United Future Beyond Bleak, It’s Thoroughly Depressing.

    So the takeover has been called off. I was a little less shocked than I would have been a month a go, but I was still surprised by this. I fully expected the time taken to have been used to iron out any issues. I don’t know what to make of it all. Amanda Staveley has said the blame lies with other clubs attempting to block the deal, but the statement from the PIF Group was a strange one. To me, it seems like a […]

    Newcastle United Takeover: The Fans Deserve Better Treatment Than This

    Monday 20th July 2020. 102 days since the English Premier League received the submission seeking approval of a change of ownership of Newcastle United. Since then, there has been no decision, no communication, just silence from those who have been asked to approve the change. In the meantime, there’s been lots of noise, much of it irrelevant, from a number of sources seeking to stop the takeover happening. The UK media, who seem to be pursuing their usual anti-Newcastle agenda Amnesty International bein sports in […]

    Newcastle United Takeover: Reasons To Be Fed Up

    The Newcastle United takeover was submitted to the Premier League on 9th April – so as I sit here tapping these words into the keyboard, they have had a staggering 95 days to make a decision under their owners and directors test. 95 days to make what should be a simple decision based upon their own limited parameters – are the buyers financially sound and do any of the proposed directors have criminal records etc which would debar them from owning a Premier League club.

    Newcastle United: Amanda Staveley Subjected To Unfortunate Comments

    Amanda Staveley, PCP Partners queen and darling of Newcastle United fans, has been subjected to some pretty grim comments recently. Ms Staveley is, of course, the driving force that put together the consortium which is currently bidding to buy Newcastle United from Mike Ashley. A consortium which includes PCP Partners, the Reuben Brothers and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. Wor Amanda is currently involved in a high court battle with Barclay’s Bank for a cool £1.6bn which she says is owed to PCP Partners for […]

    Newcastle United v Manchester City Debacle: The Final Word!

    I’m sure the pain of watching that embarrassing first half “performance” against Manchester City in the FA Cup will stay with us for some time. Trying to play the Rafa way without Rafa was suicidal, and so it proved. Below are the thoughts of our UTD111 Forum member “Ghostfacekillah” who speaks his mind and doesn’t hold back! It’s the final word before we move on to Bournemouth! The first half was entirely Bruce’s fault, the way he set the players up, they were on a […]

    Get Ready For The Next Newcastle United Rollercoaster Ride!

    Had my fingers crossed in the last week hoping that there might actually have been some sort of announcement to say things had been finalised on the transfer of our club to Amanda Staveley and her chums to finally put us out of our misery. But nothing again. The EPL checks on the fitness of the new owners to run a footy club have now been going on for 6 weeks and I imagine that not many United fans have got any finger nails left […]

    Are Newcastle United fans fuming? fuming adjective feeling, showing, or expressing great anger. Are you fuming?

Anyone who has been scanning article listings in news platforms such as “Newsnow” in the last month or two will have noticed a marked increase in the headlines which include the words fume or fuming – as in “Newcastle fans fume over…..” […]
