SNP MP had queried why Louis Tomlinson wouldn't be allowed to own a football club, but MBS would, basically.

He seemed to think it was a very clever question.

Because the takeover is going in One Direction - down the toilet.

It's been mentioned before by the journalists themselves that they don't write the headlines for the articles.

Got rid of the tweet but the article still says:

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has revealed that a decision on the £300million takeover of Newcastle United is imminent and denied that the government is applying pressure to approve the Saudi Arabian-led deal.

Like someone above said, it sums up the majority of the press recently.

Richard Masters coming up on talksportdrive at 17.30 to confirm once again its a confidential process.

They are just playing clips from this mornings committee I think.

Without knowing the exact specifics of which PL officials played the driving role in that project I prefer to give credit to the whole committee rather than Masters as an individual.

My earlier post querying SNP involvement in the EPL was with reference to the West Lothian Question.

Them being MPs is kind of irrelevant if you take that into account.

Yeah, it does seem like it. Someone tweeted that Masters would've found this morning's MP session much harder if it had already been approved, so maybe that was the last obstacle.

Once the Saudis say the right thing a few more times, it's getting approved :thup:

Somehow it feels like people who are saying "it's 100% happening" are mentioning it over and over again as if they are trying to convince both themselves as others :lol: Could be totally wrong, might be different people saying it each time, can't be bothered to check. Having said that, my gut feeling is that it'll happen. Because money talks, plus the Gov.
