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:
At Arsenal, the emphasis on developing the next generation is apparent in the club’s readiness to give youth a chance and the club may have found its next gem in Kelechi Nwakali.
The young forward, currently on loan at MVV Maastricht, led Nigeria’s U-17 side to World Cup glory and if recent form is an indication, his development is bound to impress the hierarchy at Arsenal and the fans alike.
Maastricht’s recent 2-0 league win over Helmond featured an amazing overall performance from Nwakali, consisting of outrageous skills and a superb assist. Check out his performance highlights below:
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-
Despite being amongst the best sides the Premier League has to offer, both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur come into their highly anticipated game this weekend in very different runs of form.
Whilst Spurs have looked like a well-oiled machine in recent weeks, City have looked like a side struggling for fresh ideas.
It’s a unique situation for Pep Guardiola, who has never had to face such adversity in his managerial career until now. With Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Pep was used to being the hunter; as of now, his Manchester City side are the hunted ones.
And if statistics are to be believed, it won’t get better for them, at least not this weekend. A Spurs fan account on Twitter recently put two and two together and attempted to make four, literally.
According to the analysis that uses two key stats pertaining to both City and Tottenham, the North London side are currently poised to score at least four goals against the Citizens!
Check out how the numbers add up below:
English club’s fan following around the world and in Asia particularly is well known with clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea all having dedicated fanbases in the region.
Amazingly, it isn’t only the “big” clubs that can boast having fans around the continent.
A Newcastle fan recently met a South Korean international who, in an amazing display of support, had traveled 5000 miles to see the Toon play the FA Cup game against Birmingham City last night.

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.
