Haben sich die Finanzregeln der Premier League auf Newcastle ausgewirkt?

von NFI Redaktion

While the profit and sustainability rules of the Premier League may have lost some validity with the news today that Everton’s 10-point penalty has been reduced to six on appeal (although they must still face another charge), this does not mean they won’t have an impact. The dismal January transfer market in England was largely due to teams fearing a PSR violation, perhaps viewing what happened to Everton and what could happen to Nottingham Forest as significant warnings. Erling Haaland aims to break records in the Premier League.

One might wonder if this is the reason why the Saudi PIF has not turned Newcastle into PSG North. Or perhaps PSG would have faced the same fate if they played in the Premier League instead of Ligue 1. Newcastle was humiliated by Arsenal on Saturday night, the second time in recent years that a title contender – which Newcastle considers itself just half a step below due to its alleged financial power – has sent them packing, like when Liverpool spun them for 90 minutes on New Year’s Day.

They also had to settle for two draws at home against Bournemouth and Luton, conceding a total of six goals against two teams in the bottom half of the table at the alleged Fortress St. James‘ Park. They are currently in ninth place and are ten points behind fifth, potentially limiting them to only a Champions League spot for next season (with Spurs still having a game in hand).

Newcastle will attribute their poor season to the absence list. Sandro Tonali, their key summer signing, played a few games before a suspension ended his season. Harvey Barnes has been mostly injured. Joelinton is now out. Callum Wilson cannot stay on the field to support Alexander Isak as a striker, although Wilson’s injuries are par for the course. Sven Botman and key player Jacob Murphy have also missed time. However, every team faces injuries, and Saudi owners are supposed to overcome them. Yet, these owners have not been able to achieve the level of play that would allow Newcastle to overcome the injuries suffered.

Newcastle may still be financially constrained, having reported a loss of $93 million last season. As every fan now knows, a club can only lose about $133 million over a period of three seasons. They may have to sell Guimaraes or Isak to achieve greater depth, which could potentially hold them back. Certainly, there will be some shenanigans trying to get players into the Saudi league, as was the case last summer with Alain St. Maximin, but that won’t be enough. It will be a longer project on the Tyne than many thought and their fans had hoped.

Regarding other events in Ol‘ Blighty this weekend:

4. Arsenal continues to impress

It wouldn’t be fair to blame Newcastle’s performance solely on their errors, as Arsenal was once again brilliant against formidable opponents. Just like against West Ham, Burnley, and Liverpool, they have won six consecutive league games with a total score of 25:3. It’s a bit daunting. Mikel Arteta had a new twist to create space in his midfield by using Jorginho as practically the sole midfielder this time, allowing Declan Rice to play more as a number 8 than where he usually plays. Although Newcastle certainly helped. As Rice continuously pushed forward, Newcastle didn’t know where to be. Look at how much space Jorginho has to pick out Gabriel Martinelli to set up Arsenal’s second goal.

3. Aston Villa is back to playing attractive football

Yes, Nottingham Forest is always an easy canvas to play artistic football against, but this second goal for Villa is a five-course meal. All 11 players touched the ball in that move, and Jacob Ramsey’s awareness to pass up the shot to find Douglas Luiz is out of this world. It’s a huge win for Villa, considering what we’ll talk about next, as they now sit nine points ahead of United in sixth place, and it’s still very likely that five teams will qualify for the Champions League next year.

2. United is back in form

The thing about constantly winning on Hail Marys is that they eventually don’t come off or a team beats you with one. That wasn’t a fluke, as Fulham completely deserved the win at Old Trafford. And if a team allows Adama Traore to do something productive, like Harry Maguire does here, then they don’t deserve anything. United equalized through Maguire, who shouldn’t have been on the field, extending their streak of luck. On the other hand, if he hadn’t been on the field, he wouldn’t have been able to pull off his stroke of luck and potentially lose the game.

1. Switch to the League Cup

Yes, it’s the conclusion of the Premier League, but the first trophy awarded this season at Wembley Stadium was taken from Liverpool in extra time by Chelsea. The simple narrative is that Jürgen Klopp put academy players on in the second half who then outperformed Chelsea’s billion-dollar squad, but that’s too simplistic to reach. First, the age gap between the two teams that finished the game wasn’t actually that big, and it’s not the fault of the Chelsea players how much they cost. Secondly, Liverpool still had one of the best defenders on the field who took charge and eventually scored the winning goal, while one of Chelsea’s main problems this season is that they don’t have veterans who can stay on the field and play well enough as leaders. Thirdly, yes, Chelsea showed a lack of aggression in extra time and gave all of Liverpool’s young midfielders time to settle in and feel comfortable and confident, but it also demands a lot from them to press angrily after 90 minutes and the defense-against-counter method had already given them more chances to win the game. The biggest difference between these two teams lies in the decisive goal and the way a club makes those big purchases. Van Dijk was the most expensive defender in the world at the time of his purchase and soon became…
