PL confirm Super League 'rejected'
The Premier League has confirmed that the Super League has been "unanimously and vigorously rejected" by the remaining 14 teams at a meeting on Tuesday.
Crisis talks were held with Premier League chief executive Richard Masters this morning to decipher a plan of action after the 'big six' announced they were joining the breakaway league on Sunday.
FIFA, UEFA and the UK Government further outlined their plans to block the project today, for which 12 clubs have signed up, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.
Boris Johnson refused to rule out evasive government measures such as cutting police funding around matches and revoking work visas in an attempt to thwart the Super League.
After a lengthy meeting, the Premier League has confirmed that the project has been resoundingly rejected by the remaining clubs, who are said to be furious over what is considered a huge betrayal to English football.
Sir John Hall's verdict
"Tell them to get stuffed."
Sir John Hall isn't shy in airing his view on the European Super League proposals - the plan of 12 clubs, six from the Premier League, to form a breakaway competition.
He sold his majority stake in Newcastle United to Mike Ashley back in 2007 and while he's one of the North East's most well-known businessmen, he's a football fan at heart.
"I'm totally opposed to it," he said about the Super League plans. "We've got to stop it otherwise it will destroy the game.
Newcastle United have made their opposition to the proposed European Super League clear with a hilarious TikTok post.
The Magpies have made their stance on the proposals clear with a video posted on their TikTok channel.
The clip shows Matt Ritchie celebrating in typical fashion with an attack on a corner flag in front of a jubilant Gallowgate End.
Jonathan Woodgate has slammed the European Super League for going against 'everything that football stands for' and the former Newcastle United defender believes the plans prove that 'money is the root of all evil'.
The Premier League's supposed big six - Man City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal - have agreed to join the breakaway competition alongside AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid.
The shocking plans - tellingly, none of the founding members would be relegated - have been condemned since the news broke on Sunday and Newcastle strongly oppose the idea.
Woodgate, who also played for Real Madrid, is currently in charge of Championship side Bournemouth and the Cherries' boss was asked for his thoughts about the proposals ahead of his side's game against Millwall on Wednesday evening.
Shelvey on 'lazy' accusations
Jonjo Shelvey has faced up to accusations that he is lazy while turning out for Newcastle United.
During the club's regular feature - 'Zoom Army' - in which players are asked questions by supporters, one fan, named Davy, queried 'why are you so lazy?'
Shelvey began with 'cheers Davy' before turning away from the camera to compose his response.
Jim Crawford interview
Kevin Keegan was met with jeers from Newcastle United supporters for the first time in his life as he famously made his way down the steps at the back of the Milburn Stand.
The hundreds of supporters gathered outside St James' Park were, naturally, upset after Andy Cole was sold to rivals Manchester United in January, 1995 - and they wanted answers.
But they soon heard Keegan out and before the Newcastle boss knew it, fans were suggesting Alan Shearer, Matt Le Tissier and Roberto Baggio as potential replacements.
When one of those supporters pointed out that Keegan would not be 'daft enough' to sell Cole if he did not have someone lined up, assistant Terry McDermott could not help but mutter 'oh yes he would' under his breath behind him.
Winger Keith Gillespie did at least move the other way as part of the Cole deal and Newcastle ended up doing some further business before the season was out. However, Jim Crawford was not exactly the headline-grabbing name supporters were expecting.
Shearer and Richards on Carroll
Alan Shearer has paid tribute to the 'good touch' and 'unbelievable shot' Andy Carroll had in his prime but the Newcastle United legend believes the towering striker had a body that 'wasn't designed to play regular first-team football'.
Shearer has been reflecting on Carroll's £35m move from Newcastle to Liverpool in 2011 on the latest episode of the Match of the Day: Top 10 podcast.
This week's edition looks at transfer shocks and Carroll's dramatic deadline day switch ends up in eighth place in Shearer's top 10 and fourth in fellow pundit Micah Richards' list.
Here is the full transcript of what Shearer, Richards and host Gary Lineker said as they looked back on the day Carroll became the most expensive British footballer of all-time.
