The era of Saudi Newcastle began with scenes of rejoicing at St James' Park, as Newcastle fans rapturously greeted their trillionaire saviours. Newcastle's days as many people's second favourite team may not return for some time, but hey - it's better to be feared than loved? We talk about the dramatic match at the King Power, where Coach Brendan Rodgers won the tactics and the mindgames. Rory Smith and Miguel Delaney join us to give their impressions of the events in Newcastle yesterday, and how the Saudi story might play out from here.

The Totally Football Show with James Richardson

Jimbo is joined by Rory Smith, Duncan Alexander and Adrian Clarke on the pod where, in spite of the international break, there's plenty to discuss. Mike Ashley's reign at Newcastle looks to be coming to an end. But the Saudi Arabian-backed takeover raises many issues. Is this the natural conclusion to the total worship of money in English football? Italy's world record breaking unbeaten run is over as Spain beat them 2-1 in the Nations League semi-finals, inspired by 17-year-old Gavi as the future looks bright for the Spanish. And for Barca? Arguably the biggest World Cup qualifier this weekend sees Scotland take on Israel at a packed Hampden. Laura Brannan tells us more. Duncan brings his stats of the season so far. Are we witnessing the most lenient campaign in Premier League history? Plus Claudio Ranieri returns to English football. And Duncan and Adrian relive their days in the cub scouts.

On this week's show I'm joined by Rory Smith of the New York Times to talk about the new edict to referees from on high for them to 'let it flow'. Is this going to lead to a rise in injuries as players push the boundaries, realising they may not get the kind of punishment they did before. We talk about the underlying culture of physicality in English football, how this is not a new thing – something Arsenal fans know only too well – and the way that refereeing and officiating appears to have a make it up as you go along element to it. We also chat about the proposal to make the World Cup biennial.After that it's some quick Arsenal chat with Andrew Allen as we face a non-European season, and how we have to make that 'advantage' count, particularly for games like the weekend trip to Burnley.Follow Rory @rorysmith : Follow Andrew @aallensportIf you want to become an Arseblog Member on Patreon, you can sign up at patreon.com/arseblog for just €5 per month.
