Miggy wins another award, Wilson deep dive, Ashley buys a football stadium

Thursday's recap

Miggy moments

  • Miggy was named the PFA Fan's Player of the Month for October
  • He's the top points-earning midfielder in the FPL this season, outscoring both KDB and Salah
  • Sadly, today also marked the end of Miggy's time away with his national team, as he flew back to Newcastle having pulled out of the squad due to injury

Toon linked with Vitinha

  • According to O Jogo, the Braga forward has a £26m release clause in his contract
  • Newcastle have expressed an interest
  • The 22-year-old has scored five goals with three assists in 13 appearances this season
  • He's also been on fire in the Europa League, with four goals and one assist in five appearances this season

January spending?

But the club are in a position where Champions League qualification, and the riches and the profile that come with it, is attainable. Might one or two well-judged winter-window moves — Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, say, or one of Leicester City midfielders Youri Tielemans and James Maddison — make the difference?

Ashley looking to get back into football?

  • Rumours have been circulating for weeks that Ashley was looking at taking over Coventry
  • Today, he took over ownership of the club's stadium, the Coventry Building Society Arena
  • While Coventry City was sold to Doug King earlier this week, Ashley has secured the stadium
  • In the process, he's secured jobs in the local area
  • Obviously, this means the club and stadium are owned by different parties. Having had 14 years of Ashley, we can't help but feel this has the makings of a disaster for Coventry fans

Cabaye quotes

My mentality was suited to the EPL & #NUFC. I felt at home from the first minute. It was a beautiful experience. For me everything about Newcastle felt perfect when I signed. They are passionate about their club & thats why football in Newcastle was so great

Now for something completely different
