Newcastle fans’ protest doesn’t end successfully and they won’t have an answer before 2022.
and the Premier League have released a statement indicating that the main hearing of the arbitration has been adjourned until 2022, meaning that the current owner of the club, Mike Ashley, will remain at his position for the next season.
A joint statement from Newcastle and the Premier League on Monday read:
"The parties attended a hearing today in the case between Newcastle United and the Premier League.
"The main hearing of the arbitration has regrettably now been adjourned until early 2022 due to issues with the disclosure of evidence.
"The parties will be making no further comment at this time."
Now the fans are even more frustrated, according to Holly Blades, who says that not answering the fans’ questions around the process of the takeover is showing a lack of respect towards the supporters.
"We felt compelled to organize the protest because it has been 15 months that we have now been waiting for an answer to this takeover, the longest kind of time that it has taken for something like this,"
she told Sky Sports News
"We just feel like we can't be kept in this limbo for much longer and we can't sit and have no comment from the Premier League.
"We need some sort of answers because it is not fair on the fans, Steve Bruce, the players, anyone - because we really don't know what is happening with the club and it is putting us in a massively damaging situation."
