Poundland offer to sponsor Newcastle ahead of next season

British high street chain Poundland have “offered” to become Newcastle United’s new kit sponsor for next season.

It comes after Huddersfield own unveiled a Paddy Power sash on their shirt earlier this week in a stunt that left fans infuriated.

It was eventually revealed as a hoax, with the ‘Save our Shirt’ campaign aiming for a move towards unbranded football kits across England.

Poundland’s managing director Barry Williams got involved in the action with an offer of his own.

“Here’s a deal for you (Newcastle). How about we talk about us sponsoring next season’s Newcastle kit to go one better…”

Newcastle fans would have been forgiven for thinking he was being honest, given the shambolic goings-on at St James Park over the summer which have seen Rafa Benitez and star man Ayoze Perez leave.

Williams hilariously added: “You share our love of not spending more than you have to, and you know the value of a pound. When it comes to shelling out for players, you’re not really in Man City’s league.”

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has established a reputation in Tyneside for keeping his money firmly in his wallet.

When he has invested, it has often been for a brand new chain of shops rather than a brand new player.

Poundland even went to the effort of creating a sash style kit of their own for Steve Bruce’s side.

We think that really would be the final straw for the suffering Toon Army faithful!

Chelsea vs Manchester United

Both Teams To Score & Draw

Chelsea have scored twice in each of their last two PL outings and a 60% majority of Chelsea’s PL matches have seen both teams score. These teams will be definitely very balanced and a draw is very likely. Chelsea have settled for 3 draws in their last five Premier League games. Manchester United are also fond of scoring recently netting at least one goal in four of their last five.

19:45

A.C Milan vs Torino

A.C Milan to score in both halves

On a run of four straight SA defeats which saw them score twice but concede a whopping 16 (4.00 per game), Torino are on a downward spiral. Indeed, these 16 goals account for 38.10% of their total conceded this season. It’s unlikely they will be able to hold back this A.C Milan side, especially away from home.

19:45

Châteauroux vs Lens

Lens to Win

Lens sit second and haven’t lost in their last five games. Chateauroux are sitting at 16th and will likely be dominated for most of the game. Chateauroux have also lost two in their last five and have little chance of holding back promotion hopefuls Lens.

19:30

VfL Bochum vs VfB Stuttgart

VfB Stuttgart Over 1.5 Team Goals

Promotion hopefuls Stuttgart are likely to beat relegation Bochum, who are currently in awful form losing three of their last five putting them just above the relegation zone. Stuttgart have also managed to score at least two goals four times in their last six matches.

19:00

NAC Breda vs Jong Ajax

Over 3.5 Goals

There has been at least 3.5 goals in three of the last four games for Jong Ajax. Breda have also managed a similar stat with two of their last four having over 3.5 goals. These teams will be relatively balanced but Ajax will have the upper hand. This is likely to be a high scoring game similar to the last few times these teams have met.

19:15

Hannover 96 II vs Hamburg SV II

Both Teams To Score

Both of these teams are fighting for survival in the German second division with Hannover 96 failing to score just once in their last five games. The last time these two clashed it was a 1-1 draw, but Hannover seem to have the upper hand in this one as they go into this games winning four of their last five.
