Magpies defender Paul Dummett waisted no time in reminding Black Cats supporters of the gap current between the bitter rivals that is set to increase rapidly after Yasir Al-Rumayyan and a Saudi-backed consortium completed the purchase and are expected to immediately institute a considerable spending spree in efforts to put the club back on track in rapid order.

As for Sunderland, the situation has been dire for quite some time after their relegation from the Premier League at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.

The Stadium of Light outfit have yet to make their return to the top flight of English football, and were immediately relegated to League One after just one season in the Championship in a massive nose dive down the ladder.

With the club still fighting to get back to the Championship after four years in the English third-tier, Sunderland – who were subject of the popular Netflix series ‘Sunderland ‘Til I Die’ – are expected to be frustrated at the current state of affairs gripping their biggest domestic rival.

While the completed takeover of Newcastle will not guarantee success, the possibility of the club going through a rapid transformation similar to both Chelsea and Manchester City remains high.

Backlash against Newcastle takeover

Though few at St. James’ Park will be complaining about the hopeful reinforcement plan that looks set to begin in January, many outside of the Newcastle camp have taken aim at the ethics behind the successful purchase.

Claims that there is little if any difference between the Public Investment Fund and the Saudi state government itself have some feeling that the league hierarchy have bent to outside investment and an increase in the leagues global profile.

With Saudi doors and TV’s now open to the most popular league in the world, the money flooding into the top level of English football is only going to increase. Whether or not this was the leagues chief aim remains to be seen, but if Newcastle begin to net silverware, hardly any will complain.
