For a club which boasts a worldwide fanbase, Newcastle are yet to do justice to their potential. Part of the reason for their obscurity is Mike Ashley if the fans are to be believed. The man at the helm has been unanimously criticised for his negligence towards the club.
So when rumblings about a prospective takeover came into the fray, Magpies supporters were bound to be pleased. However a recent tweet from a certain West Ham sponsor seem to suggest that the deal might be off.
The news comes after speculation of a £300 million bid by Amanda Staveley, the model turned businesswoman has previously brokered Manchester City’s sale to Etihad owners and is well connected in Premier League realms.
However, Rich energy (West Ham Ladies sponsor) have quashed any persisting rumours of a sale, notifying that reports linking Staveley to the Toons are wide of the mark.
Check out the tweet from Rich Energy below –
The Toon fans though, are having none of it and are accusing the energy drink brand of spreading fake news.
I see West Ham fan @rich_energy has been hired by @SkySports to lie on here about Newcastle takeover. Their fake followers on here prove it.
The 26th premier league season is still in its infancy but it hasn’t stopped Manchester United fans from speculating about prospective superstar additions to the squad for next season. Mourinho’s men have gotten out of the blocks better than last season and currently sit 2nd in the table a couple of points behind their rivals Manchester City.
Summer signings Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku have both slotted in seamlessly and have become key men in the Old Trafford juggernaut while Victor Lindelof is being eased in by Jose Mourinho.
However, this potential line-up for next season is just so good it will make every Red Devil fan warm and fuzzy inside. If Ed Woodward does break the bank to sign long-term targets Antoine Griezmann and Danny Rose along with Gunners playmaker Mesut Ozil next summer, this potential lineup is worthy enough to go toe to toe with any European heavyweight.
Tottenham take on Liverpool at Wembley in a potentially nail-biting early season confrontation this Sunday. Coming off the back of mesmerizing performances away from home in the Champions League, both Spurs and Liverpool will look to lay down a gauntlet and re-establish their title credentials.
Considering their start to the season and their overall form in the last few seasons, it comes as no surprise the Lilywhites are absolutely ruling the roost with eight players in this combined XI as opposed to Liverpool’s three.
While this lineup has taken into account players on the treatment table, we can certainly trust the men who will take to the field on Sunday to produce a spectacular, end-to-end spectacle of entertaining football.
Arsenal maintained their 100 per cent record in the Europa League this season as they came away with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on Thursday.
Despite the hostile atmosphere at the Rajko Mitic Stadium, Arsenal’s young charges showed supreme resilience and effort to register all three points. And Theo Walcott who laid down the assist for the match’s lone goal was quick to praise the local riot police on duty at the stadium for ensuring the safety of his team.
The Arsenal star seemed a popular figure with the all armor Serbian riot police as he was seen posing for several photographs before posting the pictures and thanking them on social media.
We all know just how good Anthony Martial is on the ball. The Manchester United attacker is one of the most feared players in the English division boasting a sublime repertoire of skills and tricks that have left many defenses bamboozled in recent seasons.
But perhaps what we all didn’t know is the fact that Martial’s beau Melanie Da Cruz seems just as impressive on the ball as the man himself as evidenced by the Frenchman’s latest Instagram video.
The video shows the French reality TV star showcasing her skill with the ball as Martial hands over the ball to her. United fans were no doubt impressed that Martial’s ball skills were rubbing off on the beauty.
Despite a blistering start to his Liverpool career where he scored 25 goals his first season at the club, Daniel Sturridge has slowly faded into obscurity in the Liverpool scheme of things owing to his endless injury issues.
And while injuries come across as a professional footballer’s worst nightmare, Sturridge did seem to make the best out of his injury lay-off earlier in the summer as he rubbed shoulders with some of the music industry’s leading artists.
The England striker who was in the Los Angeles on a personal training program featured in the video for Preme & PartyNextDoor music collaboration titled “Can’t Hang” which was recently released.
The striker can be seen showing off some of his moves in the video that also features appearances by the likes of Drake, 21 Savage, and Raekwon.

The divide between Tottenham and Chelsea has been the highlight of London derbies with both clubs vying for the top spot in past seasons. The uncompromising hatred that has built up between the two neighbours has resulted in memorable clashes between the two.
However, Nike seems to have violated the sanctity of this paramount rivalry. In a major and unexpected gaffe, the reputed brand was found guilty of selling Chelsea merchandise with a Spurs logo on it.
The iconic cockerel engraved over a Chelsea outfit has left the Blues fans raging over Nike’s incompetency in fulfilling supporters expectations.
An absolute blunder, check out a screenshot from the official Nike store below –
Manchester United took a huge step forward towards the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Benfica in Lisbon courtesy of a Marcus Rashford goal.
Rashford kept harassing the Benfica defence and young goalkeeper Mile Svilar in particular throughout the night. Known for his direct approach and willingness to take defenders on, the young English forward made an absolute mess of Barcelona loanee Douglas on the night.
Just went past Douglas like he wasn’t there, check out the filthy skills from Marcus Rashford below –
