So; Fat Mike out, Saudis in. As a Newcastle fan I’m delighted with this news. Newcastle have suffered more than Hibs in my lifetime and that’s saying something, fans have deserved better. Obviously you’d rather it wasn’t the Saudis that made this happen but for the time being, TOON TOON!!! ⚫⚪

Thoughts?

Nah, not for me. Just about the most hateful regime on the planet.
Even Ashley is an angel compared to them.
I totally get it, brutal regime, but the EPL is a dead duck anyway due to money. I say if you can’t beat ‘em, join em!

Bring on the Mbappé-Joelinton-Kane three pronged attack! 😍

The Toon justified my Sky Sports fee for about a decade, with Messrs Ferdinand, Shearer, Asprilla, Ginola and many more.
But sorry I can't abide by any manifestation of the detestable Saudi regime, so it's a no from me....

I have a real soft spot for the Toon.

I hope this works out for you guys, you certainly deserve better 👍🏻

In the battle of the lesser of two evils it would be close between Ashley and the Saudis.

I refuse to work with or in Saudi with my job, they really pushed me to go, and asked was it religious reasons, it wasn't but I said yes and they never bothered me again. Jesus saves and 1875 nets the rebound!

Bloody delighted, I went down to the North East in my mid 20's. Lived in the toon, Wallsend and gateshead before moving over to Ireland. Lived there about 15 years, it will always be a part of home for me.

Always thought there's something not quite right about one-team city teams. Aberdeen. Newcastle. Leeds. Etc.

Not a fan but Newcastle should be doing much better each season. They get dominated at home and away. Saint Max is about the only good thing they have these days. Reminds me so much of Zemmama. An absolute joy to watch.

The EPL is a monstrosity. Its vile and obscene. It is stuck up the arse of the English line of thought which declares themselves the greatest at everything . It’s disgusting. And utterly immoral.
The Saudis are despicable , but are they any different than the Russians, the Chinese and the American money which washes itself in the EPL?
The sooner it implodes the better, but I won’t hold my breath.

Quite like Newcastle.
The city not the team.

Been there for a weekend or three with missus.
Got totally wrecked in one pub, after a bottle of two of fine red. Went on to the vodka, and somehow they seemed quite strong.
Trebles was the name of the bar.
