Sport and politics really shouldn't mix - Newcastle United

It's no secret that I am a big Newcastle United fan, and a season ticket holder, but in recent weeks my football team have been getting more column inches regarding the takeover, sportswashing and our new owners than anything seen on the field.

I will address the claims of sportswashing and the Saudi Arabian human rights record in a moment, but I can only ever speak as I find. Since the moment Amanda Staveley (PCP Capital Partners), the Reuben Brothers and the Saudi Investment Fund took over Newcastle United, her, Jamie Reuben and the new management team have only ever managed to endear themselves to the fans and the city.
