An exciting Newcastle United claim has been made regarding the new owners and their plans for the club moving forward…
Magpies journalist Liam Kennedy has claimed that Amanda Staveley and co are not at St. James’ Park to mess about after buying the club from Mike Ashley last month.
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I’ve spoken to people who’ve got excellent contacts very, very close to the Saudis and PIF, very, very close to Amanda and Mehrdad and others, and they’re not coming here to mess around.”
Newcastle fans will surely be buzzing with this claim from Kennedy. His comments suggest that PIF mean business at St James’ Park and are not at the club to have a bit of fun or to oversee mediocrity on the pitch without a care in the world.
There is no hiding how dire the current situation is at the club in terms of their on-field efforts. They are bottom of the Premier League table after 13 games and the signs are not positive for the Magpies after a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the weekend.
The Magpies remain the only club in the top flight who are yet to win a single league match and they are currently six points off 17th as it stands. This shows that they are in risk of being cut adrift at the foot of the table and they need to start picking up results quickly or else relegation may become a likely scenario this season.
If Newcastle are relegated to the second tier, at least the supporters now know that PIF will not mess about with them. They appear committed to their plans for the club and, if the dreaded drop happens, they could restructure everything suitably to attack the Championship and return to the top flight before progressing from there.
Their ambition could also be an exciting prospect for supporters ahead of the January transfer window as they could show they mean business with some signings to bolster the squad in an attempt to avoid relegation. The supporters know that they are in good hands either way, whatever their on-field fate at the end of the season, and that may be a comforting and even exciting thought for the Toon faithful.
