10. The Newcastle Takeover:

After years of drifting and content under the ownership of Mike Ashley, Newcastle United’s long wait for a new ownership finally ended with the confirmation of a Saudi Arabian-backed takeover worth £300m on 7th October.

His Excellency Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Governor of PIF, will serve as Non-Executive Chairman of Newcastle United. Amanda Staveley, chief executive of PCP Capital Partners, will have one seat on the board. Jamie Reuben will also be a director of the Club, representing RB Sports & Media.

The takeover, which came after 18 months of delay and uncertainty, transformed Newcastle into the richest club in world football overnight. Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund is said to have assets worth £320bn – £299bn more than the Premier League’s second-richest owner, Manchester City’s Sheikh Mansour.

With the whole club and Newcastle fanbase being jubilant and excited about their future, Newcastle sacked Steve Bruce and appointed Eddie Howe as their new manager but the club still remains in 19th place with just a win in their 18 games so far in the Premier League. The club’s top-flight status could be shattered with results not coming their way

The ownership and the management will look to get in reinforcements in the January Transfer window to at least manage above the relegation zone this year but come back strongly next year.

9. Solskjaer ‘OUT’, Ralf Rangnick the Godfather of Gegenpressing ‘IN’

Ralf Rangnick was appointed as the new Interim Manager of Manchester United on November 29th until the end of the season after 8 days since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked. Although Michael Carrick was in charge of the first team until the new manager’s work visa was finalized.

Manchester United board decided to sack their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after another embarrassing defeat at the hands of Watford at Vicarage Road. The Red Devils board did a virtual meeting after the match & communicated their decision to the promoters The Glazer Family. After a series of embarrassing losses to Manchester City, Liverpool, Leicester and Watford Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.

Michael Carrick took charge of the team in which he led them to a draw against Chelsea, a 2-0 win in the Champions League which sealed qualification and a 3-2 win against Arsenal at home. After loads of speculation around Pochettino, Erik ten Haq, Zinedine Zidane the German Ralf Rangnick took charge and is expected to change the way United plays football with his Gegenpressing philosophy.

Although Manchester United will have to make another Managerial change since Rangnick is expected to stay just until the end of the season following a Consultancy role later on in the United board. But in case he manages to win a title and reach the Top-4 in the Premier League then an extended managerial role should be imminent for the German.

8. Magnificent Mo Salah

The Egyptian King Mohamed Salah has been unstoppable once again for Liverpool in all competitions but most importantly in the Premier League. In his 18 appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League, he has scored 15 goals and provided 9 assists so far in the season. Mohamed Salah still overly remains underrated in the Football world

Such snubs certainly haven’t affected the man himself, though. The 29-year-old, who produced stunning solo strikes against Manchester City and Watford, is now up to 22 goals for the 2021-22 campaign, while he’s also chipped in with nine assists. The Liverpool winger has arguably taken his game to an even higher level this season and yet he was only ranked 7th in the recent Ballon d’Or and he didn’t even make the FIFPro World XI shortlist.

Nobody thought Mohamed Salah would ever top his 32-goal season in 2017-18, and yet the Egypt star is on course to do just that, scoring 15 and assisting nine in just under half a season.

He is quite simply at Lionel Messi levels right now, cutting through opposition defenses to score pivotal goals out of nothing and turning average Liverpool performances into victories in the process. Salah’s ludicrous solo strikes against Manchester City and Watford scored in consecutive games, summed him up. He is in a world of his own right now.

Xisco was replaced by veteran Italian coach Claudio Ranieri, who famously led Leicester to the Premier League title in 2015-16.

The second manager to be sacked in the Premier League came as no surprise to anyone as Steve Bruce was sacked by Newcastle following their Saudi-led takeover and former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe replaced him.

Nuno was the third Premier League boss to be fired, lasting just 10 games as Tottenham boss before being shown the door on November 1. He was replaced by Antonio Conte who was a favorite to replace Solskjaer at Manchester United.

Norwich City sacked Daniel Farke right after the club’s first win in the Premier League 2021-22 campaign as his side beat Brentford 2-1. The following day, there was another managerial casualty as Aston Villa coach Dean Smith was sent packing after a poor start to the season.

Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer departed immediately after the November transfer window closed following a stunning 4-1 loss against Watford. The Norwegian had spent much of his near three years in charge doing just enough to dodge the sack only for his luck to run out after a run of five Premier League defeats in seven games.

The Red Devils snatched up the Portuguese forward from their noisy neighbors Man City and set to see the 36-year-old return to Old Trafford this summer. The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner has proved a savior for Solskjaer this season having scored crucial goals and equalizers.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 7 goals in the Premier League providing 2 assists. While he proved more crucial in the Champions League chipping in with 6 goals in 5 games for the club. While some people doubted his return he just continued to silence them with his beautiful game of football.
