Fair point, I'm genuinely interested in how it plays out.

Would be interested in if thrle fit and proper person test (has anyone failed? ) would be an issue with the human rights issues and amnesty international's comments around sports washing.

{Ed001's Note - honestly there is far too much made of this through ignorance. Every country in the world, just about, has human rights issues. There is no such thing as clean money.}

Going to be really interesting to watch play out.

Also with City, PSG plus others benefiting from Pre-FFP rules on over investment it will be interesting to see if this is challenged. Definitely makes it harder for them to scale as quickly as those others and protects the status quo (which ironically includes City) .

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't get carried away yet, this announcement is more about putting pressure on Ashley than it is about it being done. Though it does seem Ashley has met his match this time, this guy does not mess about.}

Hey Ed001

How do you see the level investment being?

Will this be to the scale of Man City with training complexes and regional investment? Or more like Wolves, Everton and Leicester?

Also how will FFP impact? Seems like they wouldn't have same opportunities as Man City and PSG to over invest to catch up with all the changes.

Always thought the Citeh owners should have bought Newcastle.

Makes for a very competitive league.

{Ed001's Note - they will follow a plan similar to City I would expect. It is the way they work, planning for the grandkids futures rather than their own. So it will be very long term. However I don't think the potential in the area is quite the same as Man City to regenerate around the ground. I should say I don't know if it is rather than don't think. I don't know how much of the surrounding environs they would be able to get control of and rebuild. So it will probably end up being somewhere in between City and Wolves type of investment.}
