What date do the Premier League intend to start matches again?

Danny Ward then comes out of his goal and gets a hand to the ball (0:06) forcing the former man wide; however, he then turns and slots his effort between Ward and the defender on the line to spark wild scenes in the away end. (0:08)

Was Murphy a good signing for Newcastle?

Yes, he did a job

No, waste of space

This was one of the five goals that Murphy managed in the Championship for the Toon, and this footage has drawn a positive reaction from these Newcastle fans.

What do we think?

Costing just £4m from Ipswich Murphy, who is valued at £900k (as per Transfermarkt), scored some important goals for the Toon in their successful 2016/17 Championship season – as he scored in wins against Huddersfield, Brentford, and Rotherham.

The former striker managed to score more in the league than Aleksandar Mitrovic, and judging by the replies to this tweet is still liked on Tyneside.
