Newcastle's lack of transfer activity so far is making fans anxious

ESPNFC's Craig Burley tells Alexis Nunes he doesn't know what to expect from new Newcastle boss Steve McClaren due to his patchy managerial record.

West Ham have appointed Croatian Slaven Bilic to replace Sam Allardyce as manager.

To succeed Sam Allardyce, for whom the sense of disengagement between him and fans was mutual, Bilic is remembered as one of West Ham's own, a briefly-burning hero of their chaotic 1990s. Meanwhile McClaren is the outsider, a former manager of North East rivals Middlesbrough who is following...

Moussa Sissoko a heartless disgrace in Newcastle's abject season

The ESPN FC crew talk about the relegation in the Premier League, as Newcastle United survived and Hull City are relegated.

Heroes have been few and far between for Newcastle in what has been a dreadful season on and off the pitch.

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.
