Transfer Rater: Batshuayi to Newcastle


Liverpool's familiar failings lead to frustrating 1-1 draw at Newcastle

English Premier League: Joselu (36') Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool
English Premier League: Philippe Coutinho (29') Newcastle 0-1 Liverpool

NEWCASTLE, England -- Three points on Liverpool's frustrating draw against former boss Rafa Benitez at St. James' Park:

1. Liverpool's defence causes more dropped points

It's the same old story for Liverpool. Few teams attack like them, and few teams thrill like them. They're dominant in the middle but at the ends of the pitch, they are distinctly ordinary. A draw away at St. James' Park, where Newcastle have only conceded once in the league since the first day of the season, is not a bad...

Rafa Benitez still loved at Liverpool as Newcastle plot shock over Klopp

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol gives his verdict on Liverpool's dodgy form.

He is Newcastle United's manager these days, feted on Tyneside as an adopted Geordie, but Rafa Benitez is inextricably linked with Liverpool. Since 2004, the start of a six-year reign at Anfield, he has called Merseyside home. His wife and daughters stayed there while he took on assignments and temporary lodgings at Inter Milan, Chelsea, Napoli, Real Madrid and now at St. James' Park.

"It will be emotional for me, as I have a lot of connections," Benitez said on Friday of his old club, who...

Lascelles' leadership, confidence have Newcastle captain in England frame

There's always drama of some description at Newcastle. This summer, among such other trivialities as the manager threatening to resign on the eve of the season, there was a dispute between the club hierarchy and players over bonuses. But Jamaal Lascelles picked up the phone, called chairman and owner Mike Ashley, and shortly afterward the dispute was solved. It's worth remembering at this point that Lascelles is 23.

Still, despite his age, it perhaps shouldn't be a huge surprise. Lascelles,...

Premier League grades so far: Man United get top marks, Arsenal flop

The guys at Exploding Heads take an alternative look at Arsenal's continued demise following their 4-0 defeat at Liverpool.
The FC panel respond to your tweets about the transfer deadline, struggles in Manchester and Arsenal's season outlook.
After Tottenham's draw against Burnley at Wembley, the FC crew debate whether the London ground is behind Spurs' struggles.

After a breathless opening fortnight, the Premier League now goes on hold to make way for another raft of World Cup qualifiers. So how did your team do? Iain Macintosh grades the entire division.


Perfect. An entirely unblemished record. Admittedly, this entirely unblemished record has been secured against some of the weaker teams in the league, but that's hardly their fault. Besides, if we all insist that the beauty of the Premier League is that, "anyone can beat anyone," then...

HUDDERSFIELD, England -- ESPN FC was "OnScene" at the John Smith's Stadium as Huddersfield Town hosted Premier League football for the first-ever time, with Newcastle United the visitors.

Iain Macintosh was soaking up every moment as Huddersfield made it two wins out of two, running out 1-0 victors. Follow how his day went. 

And that's a wrap!

But David Wagner is!

Rafa won't be a happy man

It's superb!

A fully deserved win

Huddersfield in dreamland

What a scorcher!


Despite Premier League return, unease remains at Newcastle

Once again, this is not quite what supporters of Newcastle United had in mind. Having made an immediate return to the Premier League under the management of Rafa Benitez, it seemed that a period of much-needed stability might follow.

Instead, as the team prepare for a testing trip to Huddersfield on Sunday, uncertainty reigns. A very public disagreement between Benitez and owner Mike Ashley over financial backing has raised fears that the club may slide straight back down again.
