And we are back for another Toon Talk! This weekend featured some interesting headlines so lets dive in.

Newcastle played and lost to Burnley at Turf Moor this past Monday. It was not a great game to say the least. Here is what Nicky had to say about it. (CHN)

If you are interested in knowing what the process is of buying a football club, here are some rules the new owners of Newcastle will have to follow. (Chronicle)

Christian Atsu is up for the African Player of the Year award! The Ghanaian has been a very consistent player for us and one of my favorites to watch. You know he will bring his high energy every match and it is nice to see that his home continent is recognizing this. (Chronicle)

It has been very puzzling to see Mitrovic not featured on a side who is struggling to produce goals from their strikers. Newcastle could have used his abilities in their 1-0 loss at the hands of Burnley... but why has Benitez been okay with sitting him? Here’s an interesting article that could give some insight on the situation. (HITC)

If you missed our loss against Burnley, NBC Sports does a great job of highlighting games. But if you did in fact miss the match, you didn’t miss much. (NBC Sports)
