  'It's no surprise' - Pundit reacts after rumours on 'key player' at Rangers Former Rangers ace Michael Ball has claimed it’s ‘no surprise’ that Premier League clubs are reportedly interested in Ryan Kent ahead of the summer transfer window.

Alan Shearer has been speaking on the latest edition of Match of the Day 2 about Sunday’s Premier League games and one match which he spent some time on was Newcastle United’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal.

The Toon were unbeaten in four before the match, but they barely laid a glove on Arsenal and ended the match with just five shots.

There were many poor performances, but Shearer was particularly annoyed with Jonjo Shelvey and Sean Longstaff.

He said: (41:48) “They never really got going.

Keane tears into United in astonishing rant after defeat by Liverpool

  Keane tears into United in astonishing rant after defeat by Liverpool Jurgen Klopp's side inflicted a second defeat on the Red Devils in three days, with Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah getting on the scoresheet to down Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.Jurgen Klopp's side inflicted a second defeat on the Red Devils in three days at Old Trafford, with Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah getting on the scoresheet to down Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side 4-2.

“Look what happens in the midfield; he [Gabriel] waltzes past Longstaff and Shelvey, then it comes back into him again [Gabriel] and then Shelvey doesn’t put in a tackle, and that sort of summed up the performance for Newcastle, they were slow, no energy and they never really got going.

'Get him' - Newcastle warned about star who could cost £25m to replace; Shearer raved about him

  'Get him' - Newcastle warned about star who could cost £25m to replace; Shearer raved about him Jacob Murphy has ‘proven he can perform’ and merits a two or three-year extension at Newcastle United, according to Kevin Phillips. Murphy is seemingly in the final months of his current £25,000-per-week contract at St James’ Park, although there have been reports his deal is actually one year longer than expected. Murphy boosting Newcastle’s survival […]Murphy is seemingly in the final months of his current £25,000-per-week contract at St James’ Park, although there have been reports his deal is actually one year longer than expected.

“Just look at Shelvey there and Elneny, he has a look at him once, he then has a look at him again, he should track him; he doesn’t.

“Have a look at Longstaff and Ceballos; he should track him; he doesn’t, and when the ball eventually comes into the box and look who’s on the end of it, Elneny; he gets away from Shelvey. He’s got to be closer. He’s got to track him.”

TIF Thoughts on Longstaff and Shelvey…

Shelvey has been accused of being lazy recently by a Toon fan, and when you see how poorly he marked Elneny, you can see why that accusation has been levelled at him.

  'Danger for the PL', 'Walls are closing in' - Many NUFC fans react to takeover-related news A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from NUFC 360, which has relayed news from The Shields Gazette regarding Mike Ashley’s latest legal challenge over the proposed takeover. The Toon’s owner announced last week that he had launched a new case against the Premier League, and new details have emerged which […]The Toon’s owner announced last week that he had launched a new case against the Premier League, and new details have emerged which confirm that Newcastle are likely to hear soon about how long the CAT (Competition Appeal Tribunal) will take and that fans might even be able to watch it live.

The Egyptian was allowed to stroll past the former Liverpool man, and when the ball arrived at his feet, he had all the time in the world to have a strike, so you can see why Shearer was angry with this passage of play in particular.

However, both Longstaff and Shelvey weren’t great, and they will have to step it up against Leicester City on Friday.
