Amanda Staveley’s husband posts intriguing ‘NUFC takeover’ tweet on Saudi piracy

Mehrdad Ghodoussi, Amanda Staveley’s husband and a would-be board member had a Saudi takeover gone through, has turned a few heads on Tyneside with an intriguing new post on Twitter.

Here’s what Staveley’s other half and PCP’s managing partner posted on Wednesday night:

Piracy is a global issue that needs to be dealt with. It’s unacceptable and requires the support of governments. Thank you #saip for your continued efforts to stamp it out in Saudi Arabia #nufctakover #saudi

It has since been outlined by The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards that the Saudi press release he refers to was initially shared in June. That said, it’s still an interesting move in light of all the speculation that the takeover may not actually be dead, with he, Amanda Staveley, the Reuben Brothers and Mike Ashley all stating they are still committed to the deal (if it’s still possible) in recent statements since last Thursday’s announcement.

He was also part of George Caulkin’s article from last Thursday that included words of disappointment from Staveley. The timing is interesting and for me what is just as interesting is that almost a week on from the takeover collapsing, he still uses “#NUFCTakover“!

Of course, Luke Edwards was quick to point out that it was an “old” press release. Well, he had, too didn’t he? But for me it’s intriguing and says a lot that he’s still talking and tweeting about the NUFC takeover.

They’ve since banned BeIn from broadcasting in Saudi too, something Edwards refers to above, meaning they can no longer legally watch PL games in the country.

Still, this doesn’t strike me as the actions of a man who’s given up which has been backed up by his, Staveley’s and the Reuben Brothers comments since last Thursday’s announcement.

They say there’s no smoke without fire and this continues to be a saga of intrigue and mystery.

Why do I feel like a Netflix series is in the offering?!

  1. Saudi banned Bein in 2017. They have recently completely revoked their license. Get the facts straight.

    Think that’s pretty distasteful mate.

    Also, no ones saying it’s happening, but it can’t be ‘dead’ when all sides on the buyers end have insisted they’re still committed to finding a resolution and Mike Ashley has come out and said he’s ‘totally committed’ to it as well.

  4. Deed mate. Your scrabbling for crumbs where there are none. We all desperately wanted it to happen but it’s not so end of.

  5. It’s the usual pantomime at Newcastle that the media drum up and I keep seeing contradictory articles about the takeover. Once the announcement was made that the deal was dead then we should have moved on.
    I suppose it’s another article for clicks and and likes.
    Simon Jordan was right, the takeover will be done and we won’t hear about it until it’s done. Fingers crossed eh.
