Comedy gold as Richard Keys comment comes back to bite him ahead of Saudi takeover – Priceless

Some priceless comments have re-emerged from a Richard Keys blog post written in January 2019 – and it’s comedy gold ahead of a takeover on Tyneside.

The Bein Sports pundit has shown in true colours in recent weeks. He’s clearly absolutely raging that the Saudis are all set to seal a £300m takeover at St James’ Park, stating over the weekend that their arrival into Premier League football shows what a ‘sad’ and ‘unprincipled’ world we live in..

This was hypocritical enough given it comes from a man with zero principles – he was sacked by Sky Sports for clear sexism and cheated on his ill wife with his daughters best pal – but a comment he made last year has now been dug up by eagle-eyed NUFC fans on social media; and it’s just brilliant.

Here’s his post from January 30th (2019), where he said our glory days are “over” and something us fans can forget about “unless a ‘country’ buys Newcastle”:

“Newcastle are not going to compete with the top 6 in the PL any time soon – no matter who the owner is. The ‘big 6’ have gone away from the rest now.

“Unless a ‘country’ buys Newcastle their supporters can forget about the Keegan/Dalglish/Robson year’s. They’re over. And let’s once again point out – Ashley has had Newcastle for sale for years now, but no-one wants to buy it. (yet!)

Well guess what Richard, a ‘country’ has arrived and wants to buy us – but you’re still complaining about the success we might have as a result, stating just recently that he “wishes it was another club” and not Newcastle United being bought by silly-rich.

We didn’t need more proof, but this shows once again that he really does hold a huge level of hate and bitterness towards us Mags.

  1. Ah well he’ll be unemployed when the Saudis outbid Bein for tv rights and he’ll never be seen again


  2. Sad and unprincipled perfectly sums up old hairy hands. It’s stunning how he fails to see the irony and hypocrisy in everything he says. Brass neck doesn’t come into it.


  3. Richard Keys & Andy gray what a double act they complain about sportswashing what about them washing there filthy hands on woman absolutely disgusting they are employed by any sports network they are a danger to women


  4. Does anyone know why he has this infatuation and desire for us to fail?
