Many Everton fans have been left raging as some news emerged on the recent takeover of Newcastle United.
As per The Daily Mail, the Merseyside club were one of the most angry and vocal Premier League teams in a call to discuss the takeover on Tyneside, along with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
There was a belief among others that their anger centred around the prospect of increased competition for spots in the UEFA Champions League, hinting at potential jealousy of what the Magpies could now achieve with the money that they have available.
The news has certainly left a bitter taste among several Toffees supporters, who were disappointed with the way that the Blues allegedly acted in the call, and generally feel as if the takeover is none of their business.
Everton fans on Newcastle takeover news
These EFC fans were left raging as the news was shared on Twitter, with one Evertonian even going as far as to claim that it was ’embarrassing’:
“Meh, Moshiri is probably just angry out of jealousy. He had his chance to invest in us properly but let Steve Walsh waste hundreds of millions. So it’s his fault.”
“Don’t really see why we should have been so incensed. If it’s because of our dislike of the Saudis, we are on a terribly slippery slope. Who are we to decide whether MBS is better or worse than e.g. President Xi – who approves all of China’s material foreign investments?”
“I have to say as an Everton fan I find it a little embarrassing to be fair. Why we complaining? We’re scared of Newcastle doing what we all thought Farhad was going to do for us by spending millions and building a team to challenge at the top.”
“Is this to distract from the Sky 6? Blame someone else. No club would’ve turned this type of takeover down. Newcastle are the beneficiaries, there you go.”
“It’s none of our business…”
“Vocal because it will be an 8th-place finish at best instead of 7th for us”
