WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

PL Ban on related party loans fails
Seems a bit unfair to me. potentially Neves can now join Newcastle in January................"on loan"

13 Clubs voted in Favour, 7 against.


The seven clubs that blocked ban on signing loan players from partner teams were (according to sources) Newcastle, Sheff Utd, Man City, Chelsea, Everton, Wolves, Forest.

Some other clubs angry that Saudi-owned Sheff Utd joined the opposition bloc.

The Saudi takeover of the Geordies should never have gone through. How the premier league said it wasn't the state buying them is absolutely ludicrous. And given their human rights abuses it makes it even worse .

Financial impropriety between two Clubs that had a certain someone in common at the time? Someone with a history of using agents inappropriately and against all the rules?

Can't put my finger on it....

Not only would I ban this, but I would ban loans between teams in the same division.

Fuck me, dramas everywhere, but FFS it took a while for this to be investigated.


According to reports, the FA are prepared to ‘review evidence of potentially serious breaches of agent rules’ when Tottenham signed Jermain Defoe in 2008.

A detailed report from The Times claims ‘The FA has said it is prepared to review evidence of potentially serious breaches of agent rules in a transfer involving Tottenham, Portsmouth and Defoe’.

The former England international returned to Spurs during the January transfer window in 2008 after the London outfit paid around £7.5m to buy him back from Portsmouth. An investigation from The Times has discovered that Spurs, Portsmouth and Defoe ‘all dealt with an unlicensed agent during the negotiations’.

Re: PL Ban on related party loans fails
And just look at the (potential) talent available to Newcastle in January...............

Other high-profile former Premier League players currently at PIF-owned clubs include Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nassr), Roberto Firmino (Al-Ahli), Sadio Mane (Al-Nassr) and Riyad Mahrez (Al-Ahli).

But it is a potential January move for 26-year-old Neves - who joined Al-Hilal for £47m in June - which could help the Magpies fill the midfield gap created by Sandro Tonali's 10-month ban for breaching betting rules.
