A Saudi takeover theory as “Project Big Picture” joins the dots & exposes Richard Masters

Sunday’s ‘world exclusive’ from The Telegraph has got me thinking. Were the Premier League intentionally delaying the Newcastle takeover so that they could ‘officially’ reject it using the terms of ‘Project Big Picture’ in the future?

I don’t want to sound like I’m creating some sort of foundation-less conspiracy, so I’ll take you through my thought process.

First of all, when the takeover collapsed we lambasted the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool for their alleged involvement in blocking the takeover – a sort of de-facto veto from them. Just weeks on, this new plan will grant them, and any other top-six club the legal ability to ‘veto’ any financial takeover of any club.

Masters explicitly denied that Premier League clubs had any involvement in the collapse of our takeover – all whilst, in the background, he and his cronies were drawing up a plan that would give them absolute power to do exactly that.

Another point – the takeover made one thing undeniably apparent – They don’t want NUFC eating at the ‘top six’ table. The backing we would’ve been granted by the PIF-led takeover would’ve allowed us to attack the top-six brand and ruin what the Premier League have been trying so hard to build.

‘Project Big Picture’ entrenches the ‘top-six’ clubs as the best in the land; Indefinitely. It removes any competition from the league, allowing the title race to be between the clubs that the Premier League have cherry-picked to be involved.

Just look at this tweet from Amanda Staveley’s husband Mehrdad Ghodoussi, who was also involved in the takeover bid behind the scenes:

He’s absolutely right! It’s sickening that we’re in genuine danger of losing the Premier League’s best asset; competitiveness.

So the Premier League did what they could with us within legal means. They wouldn’t reject it, they wouldn’t accept it. Our investors had no other choice but to pull out.

And by the time Staveley, the Reuben Brothers and the PIF once again have their affairs in order and are again ready to buy NUFC; they won’t have a prayer if Project Big Picture gets the go-ahead.

Let’s hope we give the Premier League hell in the upcoming legal battle – they deserve it.

  3. Yes but what an amazing coincidence isn’t it that shortly after the NUFC sale was blocked the big six come up with plans to vet the ownership of the rest, no?

    In addition with De Marco and Fatima involved, lawyers with a reputation, could it just be that the big six know that the EPL are on dodgy ground?

    I love conspiracies. Sometimes they’re spot on. Let’s live in hope.

  8. Sounds like this has come out before being brought up. Don’t think the take over will happen now anyway, but if anything we may see some transparency and stop this power play by the CURRENT top 6…. And West ham wtf

    I was going to say the exact same thing!

    Sometimes people just can’t accept losing, and there always needs to be a theory behind it. What a shame

    Losing?

    It’s ok if you lose and is’ fair, square and makes sense, but this really doesn’t when you see how the PL want the ‘big six’ to have all the power and not be threatened.
