The Troubles for BVB Keeps Piling Up & Pulis Sacked by West Brom


There is not much from England today, It’s mostly cricket and of course, the Tony Pulis sacking and the selling of Newcastle.

Daily Mirror:

“Pulis never had a chants”
“West Brom target Allardyce after even some West Brom PLAYERS joined the fans in song against sacked boss”

and on the left we have:
“300m pounds Toon bid but Ash wants more”

The Guardian writes:
“Amanda Staveley’s Dubai-based financial advisory firm PCP Capital Partners has formally offered Mike Ashley a sum in the region of £300m for Newcastle United after conducting preliminary due diligence on the club’s finances.”
“Newcastle’s owner, who wanted nearer £400m, is pondering his next move and on Monday night was still to accept the bid in principle.”



The Times:

“Pulis aims for a rapid return”
“Tony Pulis wants to step straight back into Premier League management after being sacked with a payoff of about £2million by West Bromwich Albion”
The Welshman wants to find a new job quickly and Swansea City seems to be a candidate after considering another future for the current coach Paul Clement.








“After the Samp loss, the best medicine for Juve will be a victory over Barcelona tomorrow in the Champions League. Allegri changes half-time. Dybala wants to find the joy. Interview with Jordi Alba:

Marca who writes roughly:
“three pints to stitch it together”

Mundo Deportivo:

“Özil, 20 millions”
“The club has already moved towards the German and knows the price it would cost to sign him”
“Mesut is excited to play at the Camp Nou, but wants a concrete offer without any delays”







France Football:

“After Messi-Ronaldo, Neymar-Dybala?”
“It would be a beautiful challenge”
“It certainly represents the future of world football. Paulo Dybala, the Argentinian Juve magician has long made France Football confide a project in the not-too-distant future when it will be necessary to find successors to Messi and Ronaldo on the heights of world football.”
France Football is, of course, the magazine who gives out the Ballon d’Or, hence the “new project”.





“What game does Labrune play?”
“Since his departure in July 2016, the former president of Marseille has intervened in many transfers, Saint-Etienne, Nantes, Amiens, Guingamp, and Caen.
If he defends himself, being paid agent, his hyperactivity will irritate some actors of French football”







There is no interesting cover-page from Germany today, but we have some interesting news, mainly the move of the Borussia Dortmund headscout Sven Mislintat.

Bild writes:
“This departure really hurts Dortmund! After eleven years at BVB, Headscout Sven Mislintat aka Diamond Eye moves to Arsenal. Now the discoverer of many stars including Dembélé, Kagawa talks about the move to the island.”

Mislintat himself says:
“I would probably never have thought of engaging with other clubs. The ban initiated by the former coach to not enter the training ground and instruction to stay away from the inner circle of players, staff members, and many friends with whom I have worked closely with for years has greatly influenced my thinking.”

Then we have Kicker who writes:
“Tuchel influences Mislintat’s move”

“With a ‘big thank you’ to his superiors at Dortmund, Sven Mislintat says goodbye to BVB after more than ten years. His move to Arsenal as the headscout has been official since late Monday afternoon. Mislintat has signed a three-year contract with the Gunners. Arsenal paid him a transfer fee of one million euros. The 45-year old will move as early as December 1st.”

It’s astonishing that Dortmund has lost Jürgen Klopp, Hannes Wolf, David Wagner, Daniel Farke, Thomas Tuchel and now Sven Mislintat in less than 36 months. So much of the identity and intelligence that has disappeared during such a short amount of time.

According to Bild, Peter Bosz has two matches to reverse the negative trend or he will be fired. These two matches are against Tottenham and Schalke
