    I had actually been backing West Ham before this game but they have been utterly awful, if they win this the better team lost.

    Nearly there.

    I will be made up for David Moyes, shame he couldn’t have won his first trophy with Everton, but richly deserved.

    Well done Hammers, but good lord. Declan Rice must be the most overrated footballer in the League.

    Donít like players touching and kissing the trophy before itís presented, just not right. Do all that shit after the captain has lifted it.

    Seems disrespectful to me.

    Normally I quite like Savage he can take a joke and can give a good commentary of a game but on this occasion I dont know if the atmosphere got to him or he just didnt really know the teams but he was awful to the point that I couldnt even be bothered watching the trophy being lifted.

    Made up for Moyes, his career deserved a 'European' trophy.

    One more than the Pep wannabe is ever likely to win with Arsenal.

    Well done West Ham, though some of the fans behaviour was utterly disgraceful in throwing things at opposition players.

    Thought the Fiorentina players were superb in how they reacted to that situation though, the better team on the night lost but it doesn't matter and West Ham got the result.

    Harsh to say Rice is overrated, was not his best game but I think he could do well in a team with better players around him.

    Yes because I'm sure Arsenal would have struggled to win the Conference League.....

    The better team on the night did lose but a final is all about the result. West Ham are a poor team and I thought they offered very little quality last night but they're coming home with the trophy and that's what matters.

    Fun Fact- Bobby Robson was the last English manager to win a European trophy
    With Barcelona(Cup Winners Cup) in 1997
    Joe Fagan was the last to win the premier competition (The European Cup) in 1984.

    Thatíll be the first swerving of the financial fair play rules by Newcastle
    25M a year shirt sponsor.
    By pure coincidence a Saudi company.

    Before you go throwing mud, have you checked other clubs to see what their shirt sponsorship deals are worth? And obviously there’s a good chance we’ll be doing business with Saudi companies.

    I’ve checked for you and Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool’s are all significantly higher than ours. City and Liverpool’s are more than double ours.

    So it’s a non-story.

    7m a year to 25m

    The first figure would be a legitimate figure for a shirt sponsor of a team such as Newcasle.
    The new amount is financial doping.

    New sponsor is owned by the public investment fund which also owns Newcastle.
    We all know what will be going on, whether the FFP rules should be in place is another debate, fact is they are, so you would think they would try and cover their tracks better than this.

    I suppose the only way to tell would be what was the amount any company with non Saudi ties were willing to bid
    Then you have your answer.
    Donít get me wrong the CL exposure raises the bar but it still stinks

    Sponsorship for a club in the bottom half of the table vs one now in the champions league?

    Tielemans has signed for Villa. Great coup that!

    Not quite premier league news but Gerrard has apparently been linked with all three of the recently relegated clubs and is supposed to be in advanced talks with at least one of them.

    Would like to see him given another chance, dont think he is premier league level yet but the challenge of the championship would be good for him.

    Let's be clear: Budget wise NFC is/will be in the same league as City and PSG. I personally do not believe states should own football teams (or anything associated with professional sport. But then I am not sure an oligarch is that much better, or an oil company, or...
    Sportwashing has won golf over, they are well on their way with football and it will not stop here. TtC likes the fact his team is in the limelight again. I can understand that, NFC had excellent fans badly let down year after year by the former owner; A knight in shining armour chased him out and is pouring money into the club, they can put their chin forward and pretend they're back in the elite as they'll undoubtedly will be title contenders very soon.
    Whether they'll have sold their soul or not is irrelevant. What isn't, though, is this constant gaslighting trying to deny that financial rules are broken, and that they can do it since others are. It's fine to be OK with sport washing I suppose, but at least accept it is the case.

    Does sportswashing even work? I can't think of anything that's made the Saudis' human rights abuses more prominent in the public consciousness than LIV and Newcastle United.
