Bournemouth fixture latest, Sunderland's Rigg in Ashworth's crosshairs, Schär quotes


Bournemouth on Saturday

  • The Mirror has claimed that Premier League chiefs are desperate for this weekend's fixtures to be played as congestion increases
  • The consensus among the speculation appears to be that games outside the capital will go ahead, including NUFC vs Bournemouth
  • It remains to be seen if London-based games will be played
  • Spurs, Brentford and Chelsea are all at home over the weekend

Another youth recruit?

  • The Sun has claimed that Newcastle are going to pay £2.5million to prise Chris Rigg away from Sunderland
  • The 15-year-old is left-footed and plays in centre-midfield
  • He has featured for England at junior levels, as well as the Black Cats
  • Rigg would follow Jay Turner-Cooke up the road

Bruno banter

  • It was revealed today in The Times that Guimaraes and his pal Lucas Paqueta from West Ham had a bet on over today's postponed fixture:
Paqueta: "We had a bet with each other that the loser has to buy dinner — dinner in London, because we already had dinner in Newcastle.
“Bruno and Vinicius Jr [the Real Madrid playmaker] are my two best friends in football.
"I’ve known Vini since we were ten, at Flamengo, and me and Bruno built this amazing friendship at Lyon and became really close. It seems like yesterday we were playing video games together and talking about what it would be like if we ever played against each other. And soon it will happen."
