Maybe, maybe not.. it’s a new project for them, I think overall Newcastle are probably a bigger club than Chelsea anyway or minimum at the same level
Nah reckon the glamour of Chelsea/London would’ve have served their sports washing needs better. If this war happened when Newcastle offer was still in discussion phase they would’ve have dropped it like a hot potato

Finding it hard to believe anyone in their right mind would just bid what Roman wants considering his need to dispose of his ownership in the club before he ends up like Usmanov.


The finance expert was saying it would be around the 2 billion mark.

This witch hunt on Russians and RA is pathetic and racist.

Interesting. Good to see a middle east buyer not linked to some middle eastern sportswashing state. Moshiri is another.


Suspect the money wont be so forthcoming without the link to the government.
Moshiri was a front for Usmanov at Arsenal.

Not a good look for someone involved jn running a Premier League club.. Assad is pretty much Putins protege and one of the biggest human rights abusers in the world.

Also worth noting UAE were one of a few UN members who abstained from a vote to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

It also sounds like Russia has reached out to OPEC nations to ensure they dont increase oil production to replace Russian oil under sanctions thus ensuring oil prices remain high.

Labour MP Chris Bryant, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Russia, shared those concerns and, in an interview with The Telegraph, went on to question if Mansour was a "fit and proper person to be owning a football club".
