More Amazon Prime details emerge as Newcastle get set for new documentary

With Newcastle United now challenging towards the top of the Premier League, more eyes are back on the club.

The rapid-fire rebuild the club have enjoyed since the takeover in October 2021 has made the Magpies a major story again, after so many years in the wilderness under Mike Ashley.

That, as well as the controversial nature of Newcastle’s backing, means there is always something to debate and discuss in equal measure when it comes to the Toon Army.

Thanks to an upcoming Amazon Prime documentary, that will only continue.

Director Amanda Staveley confirmed the plans last month, with Newcastle following the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal in undergoing the Amazon treatment.

For his part, manager Eddie Howe is not thought to be particularly keen on the idea, though is aware the added revenue could improve the FFP situation.

Now, fresh details have emerged.

Indeed, according to The Athletic, the documentary will focus on the club’s commercial set-up rather than what happens in the dressing room.

There is also said to be a desire to ask challenging questions of PIF’s relationship with Saudi Arabia.

This will be some watch

It’s going to be fascinating to see how Newcastle operate behind the scenes.

With so much said about the takeover, actually getting a glimpse behind the curtains is hugely exciting. For so long during the Ashley years, the club lacked any sense of communication but, now, to see it on screen feels like a real treat.

Yes, there will be some questions those who oppose the takeover asked and, hopefully answered. Yes, it’s difficult to imagine the series won’t be edited in a slightly favourable manner just like the others but, still, this is new territory for Newcastle fans.
