The Shields Gazette reveal that supporters Gordon Stein and Keith Patterson, of the Newcastle Consortium Supporters Limited, have handed the Premier League a ‘Letter Before Action’.
They feel that the Premier League acted against the United Kingdom’s anti-competition law, after the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, PCP Capital Partners and the Reuben Brothers saw a £300 million deal to buy Newcastle halted.
After that story was published, Reuben took to his Twitter account to write ‘best fans’ along with some zebra emojis.

Through this, it is clear that the stakeholder isn’t losing interest in ongoings at St James’ Park.
It very much feels as if this takeover is still alive. Sky News revealed that Mike Ashley recently hired leading lawyers to look into the Premier League’s decision, while Stein and Patterson’s case provides further probing into the controversial verdict which stakeholders clearly haven’t taken lying down.
Additionally, Reuben also recently left his role as a director at Queens Park Rangers according to the Championship club’s official website, something he would’ve needed to do if he was to take a seat on the board at St James’ Park.
There’s certainly plenty to keep an eye on here.
