Newcastle United takeover attorney Nick De Marco has congratulated the Magpies on their latest win.
De Marco has been instructed by lawyers acting on behalf of Newcastle owner Mike Ashley to review the Premier League’s conduct following a failed bid to sell the club.
This is a different legal measure than the one led by a fan group – although De Marco appears to have recently tweeted support for the proposed move.
United fans have been watching De Marco’s Twitter feed closely after a series of references from Newcastle. Most recently, pictures were published of his first attempt to bake a “stottie”, a flat round bread that originated in the north east.

Now he’s celebrated Newcastle’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Friday night and wished Brighton & Hove Albion the best of luck in their Premier League clash with Liverpool.
Two late goals gave Steve Bruce’s men three points at Selhurst Park.
Callum Wilson broke the impasse with a prelude in the 88th minute before Joelinton sealed the win shortly thereafter.
The result put the Magpies in 10th place in the Premier League table ahead of the rest of the weekend’s games.

De Marco tweeted: “Come on Brighton! My new local team. I always like it when good customers win, especially against Liverpool! And yesterday NUFC did well! #Brighton #BHALIV #Newcastle #PremierLeague
“Good luck today to #DCFC (Derby County) and #SWFC (Sheffield Wednesday). If all three clubs win today, I’ll have a special drink tonight.”
De Marco was recently part of the team that appealed to the EFL Tribunal on behalf of Sheffield Wednesday for his 12-point penalty for violating spending rules.
As a result, the penalty was halved to six points.
His profile on the Blackstone Chambers website states: “Nick is recognized as one of the foremost lawyers in sports law. He is a regular contributor to sports administrations, players, clubs, sponsors, broadcasters and agents in football disputes, whether commercial or regulatory.
The recent aftermath of the long-running Newcastle United takeover saga was not just talk of Tyneside, but talk of the football world as well.
Now Steve Bruce has to remember his team and move forward without a change of ownership or new support.
However, the twists and turns are not over yet. Current owner Mike Ashley is considering all options after the Premier League turned down £ 300m takeover.
