Serbian striker Alexander Mitrovic really has been a joy to watch for those associated with Newcastle United in recent times.
While he may not boast a scoring pedigree akin to that of Gayle or other top leading strikers in the division, he certainly more than makes up for his lack of skill and finishing ability with his unbridled passion and love for the club and its supporters.
The Serbian remains ever ready to commit his whole for Newcastle’s cause and it is this particular aspect of the footballer that has seen him establish himself as a cult hero among the Toon faithful.
With the club facing an injury crisis ahead of the FA cup replay against Birmingham, the striker’s unreal passion and hunger for the club and the game showed itself once more as manager Rafa Benitez revealed that the player jokingly offered to play despite just haven taken out his stitches.
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”.

It is fairly safe to say, Dimitri Payet’s blatant disloyalty towards West Ham United hasn’t been well received by those associated with the club and football fans in general.
Having only just signed a £125,000 deal with West Ham last year, the one-man strike carried out by the Frenchman for not being granted a transfer to Marseille has captured headlines in recent weeks with the midfielder facing severe criticisms for his apparent lack of respect and loyalty.
In addition to having his Wikipedia page wrecked by Hammers fans, the midfielder was on the receiving end of several boos from the fans during West Ham’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The French international also came under fire from an unlikely source in YouTube stalwart TrueGeordie. The Newcastle United fan famous for his rants, did not hold back and blasted Payet in his latest recording going rather brutally.

Despite the ending of their winning streak to rivals Tottenham, Chelsea still look firm favourites to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of this season. After finishing 10th last season, the Blues have experienced a stunning turnaround under Antonio Conte, who has breathed fresh life into the squad.
Not only are the tactics being used extremely sound, but Conte has done his absolute best to bring out the best of all his players. This has resulted in much-maligned talents like Pedro, Willian and Gary Cahill producing consistently good performances week in and week out.
However, the Italian also has extremely high expectations from his players. This was one of several topics discussed by the current Chelsea manager during a Sky Sports interview with Thierry Henry.
During the talk, Conte remarked that he’s willing to ‘kill’ a player if he perceives a lack of commitment, prompting a laugh from Henry. However, Conte’s steely demeanour remained, leaving one to wonder the validity of his words!
Check out the bit from his interview below:
Fresh from signing a new long term contract that will seem him tied to the Gunners until 2021, Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin had more good news for the Arsenal fans with an early recovery from the hamstring injury sustained in the 3-3 draw over Bournemouth at the start of the year.
The midfielder was originally believed to be set for a four week lay-off on the sidelines but with news emerging Tuesday of an early recovery from his injury, the Frenchman could very well feature on Sunday with Arsenal taking on Burnley.
With Coquelin being an important performer for Arsenal in recent times, fans were no doubt ecstatic as well as impressed at the Frenchman’s early return from injury.
Check out the best reactions to Coquelin’s early return below:
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.

The Super Sunday encounter between Manchester City and Everton turned out to be a historic game as it ended in the heaviest defeat of Pep Guardiola’s managerial career so far.
The tactical shrewdness displayed by Ronald Koeman was excellent and his former team-mate had no reply to the onslaught of goals produced by Everton.
Everton youngster Tom Davies made his full debut on the day and whilst many would term this a baptism by fire, the youngster came out strong and delivered a performance to remember. His excellent overall performance was capped off by an absolutely superb goal.
There was, however, a small yet amazing moment many might have missed after the goal.
Mason Holgate, who himself had slotted into the 3-man defence comfortably, watched eagerly as his youth side team-mate struck home the goal and then celebrated it with some epic skips. See the celebration you might have missed here:
