Four points to go – one big point to sort out. Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez reckons 38 points will be enough to confirm safety and with eight matches remaining, it is only a matter of time before the Magpies’ Premier League status is assured and the real business begins. For all that Benitez talked of Cup finals and complacency at his Friday press conference, he knows – deep down – it is performance bonuses rather than staying up now at stake for most of his squad. Cardiff, who play Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in their next four games, won’t catch Newcastle unless there is a collapse of monumental proportions. Which, neatly, brings us to what comes next for Newcastle, a club where the next three months have the potential to make or break their Premier League future. Benitez repeated his mantra on Friday that the future for him is Bournemouth. But he later admitted that speculation about his future and the club’s next move would be … [Read more...] about NUFC under-26 transfer policy had its successes

Picture: Paul Chesterton/Focus Images Paul Chesterton When you listen to Stuart Webber talk about Norwich City you are left in no doubt that the club is in safe hands. He’s spoken recently about where Norwich are now at as a club, the culture he’s working to instil and how the entire backroom staff are working harder and smarter since he has come in, to undo legacy issues that had been hindering the progress of the club - a task which is still ongoing to this day.The process Webber talks passionately through of creating valuable assets from the academy to justify the expense of running it has paid exceptional dividends this season, perhaps more so than either he or Farke would have expected. The question is, would promotion to the Premier League force their hand in changing their … [Read more...] about Matt Howman: How does Norwich City’s plan evolve if we reach the Premier League?

This means the rollout for 3million people is up in the air for the meantime, as she "considers carefully" its future. So what does this mean? The Work and Pensions Secretary told MPs she wanted to make sure the transfer from existing benefits to Universal Credit was "effective, fair and compassionate" and she would ONLY be doing a trial of 10,000 people this year. Those people should be told in the coming months whether they will be part of that or now. The trial will start in July this year. After the trial is over, Ms Rudd will look at how it worked and consider best how to put everyone onto the new new flagship welfare policy.
