Top 10 Worst Premier League Newcastle United Signings
Newcastle United have long suffered unter Mike Ashley's ownership, and as a club with a very large and loyal fanbase, this has been quite tragic to behold. However, despite some drawbacks, the latest being quite recent, it looks like fans can be fairly optimistic about a potential massive Saudi takeover that would be bigger than that of Manchester City and possibly turn them into one of the world's richest and most successful sports clubs. But in my typical fashion, I'm going to go against the grain and look at the takeover itself from an angle that I think is quite tragic. Many people and media outlets have also done this by drawing attention to the nature of the takeover as sportswashing, whereby country's like Saudi Arabia invest in football to draw attention away from human rights abuses. That is a different debate, and not what I'm going to talk about, not just because I think most of the people I've seen taking this approach are not football fans, and there is an element of perspective that they can't quite understand. That's not to say there criticisms aren't valid. They are. But, as I say, it is a different debate.
Yet another star from the West Ham academy, Grady Diangana is aged only 22 and is currently playing on loan for Championship side West Brom. Typically a wideman operating on the left hand side, Diangana had been tearing Championship sides to pieces week in, week out before the coronavirus brought football activity to a stop. Having amassed over 1,300 league minutes this season, let's see what makes the englishman so dangerous.
Jordan Torunarigha may only be aged 22, but made his debut for the Berlin outfit in the 2016/17 season, playing a grand total of 482 minutes of football. 4 seasons later, the German is still not a mainstay in their defence. Still not being given the minutes he deserves, why isn't he starting, why does he deserve to, and where can he go to get those precious minutes?
With injuries, a potential send-off and disallowing of two goals, this game was a nightmare for the Blues. This was a tough controversial match called by referee Anthony Taylor, who has had his name mentioned in many controversial calls.
Liverpool ticked off another three points in their pursuit of title number 19 when they defeated West Ham United 2-0 on Wednesday night.
Liverpool whittled down their magic number to 39 with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United at Anfield on Thursday night. Thirty-nine more points and they’ll be champions of England for the 19th time. These 39 steps lead up a cliff, rather than down it.
Douglas Adams famously wrote in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy that "The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42." For Liverpool, after their 1-0 win over Wolves at Anfield on Sunday, that’s exactly right.
So here we have it, after sweeping all before them in 2019, conquering Europe and coming so close to domestic glory, Liverpool now have the chance to end 2019 with a bang.
Liverpool wrapped up a busy week of football with as comfortable a victory as you will ever see away from home. The Reds beat Bournemouth 3-0 to continue their remarkable run of form against Eddie Howe’s side.
Troubled Manchester United plays their sworn arch-rivals, Liverpool, at Old Trafford on matchday 9. The Solskjaer camp will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat at Newcastle a fortnight ago. Jurgen Klopp’s men, on the other hand, have had a perfect start to this campaign, collecting 24 points out of a possible 24 from their opening eight games. The odds are stuck against Ole and his men.
