England's Magpies on fire, latest transfer links, Philippe Albert is hilarious

THIS WEEK'S LATEST

Your round-up as Newcastle's England players get off to a winning start, plus all the other United content from the weekend and the first part of the week.

Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier

  • In case you missed it, England dished out a drubbing over Iran, with Wilson grabbing an assist
  • The lad was understandably buzzing
  • He later explained his decision to unselfishly pass rather than shoot:
"In that moment, I made the decision to square it. It was the right one; the angle was closing up. You get repaid - that's what happens in football: you give back and you receive as well so we'll see how we go."
  • Prior to the game, some clips of the main man in training
  • It was a good day for United's on-pitch Captain too, as Trippier donned the armband for his country
  • Some funnies from the England camp, as Tripps identifies his teammates in the ageing app
  • From the weekend, Nick Pope discusses similarities between Gareth Southgate and Eddie Howe
  • Official congratulations from the club's Twitter account
  • Twitter user Sanjay dropping NUFC/England facts

Bruno Guimarães

  • If you didn't see it over the weekend, give this doctored vid from the Brazil camp a watch (for a good laugh):
  • Brazil are first up on Thursday when they face Serbia at 7pm

Garang Kuol

  • The Aussie starlet has been a feature in a couple of pieces from further afield
  • First, he's tenuously referenced in this article featuring an interview with Frank Lampard (Everton are currently touring Australia)
  • This French outlet also highlighted his danger, ahead of Les Bleus' match with the Socceroos at 7pm on Tuesday
  • Howay the lad

Fabian Schär

  • No Fab content, really! Maybe this is a good time to share Miggy's interview for the PFA Awards, where the Swiss CB gets a mention...
  • Here is Alan Shearer's explanation for putting him in his team of the season so far:
“The other centre-half I’m going for is Fabian Schar at Newcastle. Under Steve Bruce one or two fans were questioning him, but his performances under Eddie Howe have been superb. He’s been a huge part alongside Pope and Trippier in why Newcastle have looked so tight at the back this season.”
  • The Swiss make a start against Cameroon on Thursday morning

NUFC Transfer Talk

  • The latest name to be linked with us is Dinamo Zagreb's left-back Borna Sosa
  • Sanjay makes the case:

Newcastle teams in action

  • Newcastle United Women won at the weekend
  • They beat Alnwick Town 3-2 in a regional cup match
  • However, the Men's Under-21 side narrowly lost at home to Crystal Palace, also in a cup match

Stats highlights

Last season no team produced fewer pressed sequences than Newcastle, who also ranked 15th for high turnovers.

Squeezing higher up the pitch with a more positive mindset, Newcastle's organised and aggressive pressing means they top the Premier League rankings in both departments.
  • And more love for Miggy:

Ex-players highlights

"I love the fans and how great they are. Of course under Mike Ashley the situation wasn't great.

"After I retired the connection with [Liverpool] was amazing. It didn't happen with Newcastle... I think that was because of Ashley.

"I have lots of love for Newcastle."
“I think this is why I settled very well in Newcastle. I came from the same kind of world. My dad worked for 36 years in a metal factory, from 14 until 50 years of age. We had everything we wanted to be happy but not a lot of money. We didn’t go on holidays, because it was impossible financially, but I had no problem with this. It was a normal life.”
  • Lee Clark meets with the Newcastle Fans TV lads
  • Les Ferdinand in The Chronicle
  • An incredibly moving interview with Dan Walker about the late Gary Speed:
