pretty much guaranteed to be 3 London clubs and then Pool (or Leicester, but I doubt it)

I would love to see Sunderland get through. Not great odds, but would be great.

After a humiliating and embarrassing start to the season Arse have really turned things around results wise. They aren’t actually that far behind the contenders now if they win this.

Yeah!!! That 3 games or whatever it was loss way way behind them..shame! Know games to play and all but they're level with 4th and 5 behind us. Even if we win 8 behind isn't bad considering

No European football should help them stay fresh as well. Playing like they have been recently I’d be worried if I were Man United.

No doubt that was a horrible call, but Sunderland really had nothing to do with it. Their fans deserve a big win… and Arse get put out. Win win.

Ramsdale proving all the critics wrong. That was a beauty double save.

The one he made just now was more impressive.

That one from the free kick his positioning was piss poor which meant he had to stretch and do the spectacular.

Newcastle United: Premier League agrees to meet Amnesty International

https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/59094163

The Premier League has agreed to meet with Amnesty International for talks about a revised owners' and directors' test following Newcastle's Saudi-backed takeover.

Amnesty wrote to Premier League chief executive Richard Masters after the takeover took place three weeks ago asking for rules to include human rights violations.

It has previously highlighted how Saudi Arabia has an "appalling" record on the issue and says the rules on club ownership are "woefully inadequate".

But the Premier League says it has "legally-binding assurances" that the country's Public Investment Fund (PIF) has an 80% control of the club, not the Saudi state, despite Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman also being chair of PIF.

It is understood that the Premier League is willing to listen Amnesty's concerns and will conduct a review of its owners' and directors' test as it often does after a takeover.

The test assesses whether any criminal activity has taken place by prospective owners, but currently does not specifically mention human rights allegations within that.

Sacha Deshmukh, Amnesty International UK's interim chief executive, said: "We're obviously pleased that the Premier League is willing to talk about these proposals as a starting point for what we hope will be a process that leads to considerable strengthening of the rules on football governance.

"The current rules concerning who owns and runs English football clubs are woefully inadequate, with no bar on ownership for those complicit in acts of torture, slavery, human trafficking or even war crimes.

"We're keen to discuss with Richard Masters our ideas for a human rights-compliant Owners' and Directors' test which can help weed out unsuitable owners complicit in human rights violations, as well as reducing sportswashing and generally improving governance within the game."
