Apart from tight transfer deadlines, the approach of January also marks the time when pictures of supposed news kits leak online; and if the latest leak on the market is assumed to be accurate, Tottenham fans can have a peek at what holds for them in the near future.
Couple of picture doing rounds on the internet, courtesy of Twitter user Julesy, shows what is claimed to be the new home & away kit that Spurs will don next season.
It has been widely reported that Tottenham has decided to switch their kit suppliers from Under Armour to Nike for a contract reportedly worth at least £30 million a season, and the famous Swoosh on the jersey (seen below) probably evidences the deal.
The shirt also flashes noticeable differences in designs of the club’s crest and sponsor AIA’s logo. Although the veracity of this leak is for anybody to judge, the changed look does indicate how radically Tottenham’s fortunes have also transformed in recent times.
Check out how Tottenham’s supposedly new kits for next season may look like:
Newcastle United secured a spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time in five seasons by beating Birmingham City with a formidable score of 3-1 last night.
Although Ritchie and Gouffran had their names on the scoresheet, it was Jonjo Shelvey who stole the show on his comeback. Back from a 5 match ban, Shelvey was everywhere: play making and assisting, while being a complete thorn for Birmingham City’s backline.
And outside of his assist and the filthy 40 yard through pass which won Newcastle the penalty, there was one sensational incident that made his return even more memorable.
Such audacity of the man that he tried to curl one in directly from a corner. Check out Shelvey’s stunning goal attempt below-
After a woeful history of consistent FA Cup crashes, Newcastle United took a step towards keeping fans’ hopes alive after a decisive 3-1 victory against Birmingham City at St. James’ Park last night.
Matt Ritchie’s wonderful brace and Yoan Gouffran’s stunner cemented a much-needed win, as David Cotterill could only manage a consolation for Birmingham City.
Apart from the refreshingly reignited attitude, what stood out for the Geordies was Jonjo Shelvey’s inspiring vision and play-making ability. The number 12 midfielder made a memorable comeback from his 5 match-ban and showed that the break had taken no toll on his reputation as a game changer.
Apart from firing long range shots to test the keeper, Jonjo stole the show as he fed a beautifully weighted pass for Gouffran, who won the penalty which was converted by Matt Ritchie for Newcastle’s 1st goal on the night.

It’s no secret that since Jose Mourinho took over reigns at Old Trafford, the manager has been fighting an uphill battle trying to revamp his defensive department.
Not only are abundant rumors doing rounds of potential signings, such as Celtic’s young sensation Kieran Tierney, but to the ire of some United faithfuls, there are now reports arising of possible exits as well.
A recent story by British daily Independent claiming that Luke Shaw might be on the way out hasn’t quite gone down very well with a reputed Man United news Twitter account, so much so that the journo working on the story was accused of having “fabricated” the news.
The ugly spat that ensued saw fans criticizing the journalist, who defended his stand claiming that the manager has finally lost patience with the young fullback.

In the world of football if controversy’s favourite children are referees, then Mike Dean is that kid who manages to piss off just about everybody and isn’t welcome anywhere. But even this lonely kid has found loyal friends amongst Tottenham fans if the latest are memes are to believed.
The FA has decided to temporarily demote the controversial referee to the Championship following many gaffes he’s been alleged to have made during some Premier League fixtures recently.
While celebrations for this decision were lead by (surprise, surprise!) Arsenal fans (who even famously petitioned the FA once seeking a ban on the referee from officiating their club’s games), rival White Hart Lane faithfuls wore gloomy (not really, though) looks on their faces, calling it “the darkest day in the club’s history”.

Sunday’s thrilling clash between Manchester United and Liverpool had everything: goals, missed chances, fights, bookings, and emotions.
While it took experienced veterans like Milner and Ibrahimovic to score for their sides, several young players displayed their talent, and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold was probably the best in that regard.
When Jurgen Klopp had to find a replacement for the injuryed Nathaniel Clyne, the manager decided to trust Alexander-Arnold to fill in the spot, and the 18 year old did not disappoint.
Apart from a string of impressive defensive moves, the full back also gave a light moment for the fans to laugh at in during the tension-gripped encounter.
While going about to fetch the ball as it went out of play, Trent humiliated a ball boy (who bore an uncanny resemblance to Fellaini) with his delicious tekkers.

Celtic’s sheer dominance has (almost) assured them of another Scottish Premiership title this season and a major chunk of credit goes to the refreshing positive attitude Brendan Rodger’s brought along with him, especially towards the younger players.
The former Liverpool boss has brought up and nurtured several young players at Celtic, proof of which can be seen in the big money offer that has reportedly been made for 19 year old star Kieran Tierney by Premier League giants Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho had reportedly been looking for a way to curb the defensive woes since he took command at Old Trafford and it was the young Scottish full back who grabbed his scout’s attention apparently.
Owing to his massive popularity, the local boy has made quite some reputation amongst the faithful Hoops, many of whom have ridiculed the United’s £10 million bid!
