I've literally not seen one journo or rag criticise or even question the saudi role in the takeover of Newcastle which looks like it's going ahead. Nothing about sportwashing or human rights, and obviously nothing from the government, FA or Prem.

No wonder these regimes look to Prem clubs, there's literally no scrutiny. If you're rich it doesn't matter. The more money the better.

Third hand reporting and hardly taking a robust position, but at least AI are speaking up.

You're right, they don't want to cause beef if/when they take over cos they'll get banned from reporting. It also won't go unnoticed that the last journo to criticise the bloke that's paying for the takeover literally got drugged, cut up and dissolved in acid.

Can't wait to see bin Salman at matches hobnobbing with the rich and famous, waving to the geordies. Nothing to see here.

A club should not be owned by any state, end of. It's just ludicrous. It's one thing having billionaire owners, like Abromovich rolling into town, but there is a limit to their spending. If the Saudis take over, its literally a bottomless pit, and without any kind of FFP seemingly being actively enforced, it will only go one way.

That's before you even take into account the horrific and continued human abuse rights by the current regime. The EPL probably sold it's soul to the money gods along time ago, but if this takeover goes through without serious investigation on owners being fit for purpose, then it well and truly has now.

Let's bring back public stoning for those people found guilty of adultery in the North-East. Will make the new owners feel right at home. Throw in a few public lashings for good measure as well.

Innit, it's literally just to sportwash the regime and keep bin Salman from facing justice. Once the oil runs out and economies switch to different forms of power Salman will be the new Gaddafi. It's all Rosey at the minute but it won't last.

And yeah what does that make the Prem now. Billionaires can't compete against rich states. We'd need to be bought by the Chinese or US states in order to compete.

Fuck the Prem, it's a joke, it's uncompetitive, unfair and bollocks. And it's not like the football is even much better. Lose Klopp and Pep (could be this season for the latter) and all the teams are shit.

Leagues with a fraction of the Prem's money play at this standard
