Club reporter slates BZG’s new takeover ‘statement’ – & reveals what’s so bizarre about it

The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards admits he’s ‘not impressed in any way shape or form’ by the Bin Zayed Group’s latest ‘statement’, believing it’s ‘flaky’ and an unconvincing way of communicating with fans.

With them releasing prior statements via the Chronicle – the regions biggest paper and online news presence – he questions why they’ve communicated via a Dubai-based radio presenter.

He makes a fair point, although I do believe it’s a little harsh to criticise given they’re communicating MUCH better than Mike Ashley or the club – even if this latest message raises as many questions as it gives answers.

Here’s what Luke Edwards has had to say in response to the ‘statement’ made by the Bin Zayed Group below:

“Both parties have worked diligently in finalising a deal, none more so than ourselves. We have completed every aspect required in a takeover process.

“Press claims of no bids or Premier League approval processes are simply untrue.

“The current owners have cooperated amicably throughout this process and if a deal is not forthcoming it will not be due to lack of effort from both parties”

The Bin Zayed Group have talked a VERY good game up until this point, but it’s hard to know whether they’re the real deal when they’re claiming they’ve completed every aspect of the deal via a local radio presenter.

Maybe there’s only so much they can say if NDA’s remain in place, but it seems a little odd that they’ve not contacted the likes of the Chronicle or Sky?

Either way, I don’t feel it’s fair to criticise the BZG when it’s Newcastle United and Mike Ashley who are the one’s refusing to communicate with us fans.

  2. ” if a deal is not forthcoming it will not be due to lack of effort from both parties”

    Is that suggesting that the only people who can kill the deal now is the FA?

  4. The wording is all pointing to a collapse and no sale, I have tried looking for positives in the Fake/Sheikhover saga but the latest supposed released statement seems to me they are saying”We have done what we can, Sorry”

    Absolute Dog Shit. 🙁
