The Magpies were taken over by The Saudi Public Investment Fund last week.

They are worth a mere £320 billion!! Newcastle will surely be huge players in the transfer market over the course of the next few years and they will undoubtedly threaten the status quo of the Premier League.

And one club in particular who could be affected by the Toon’s new wealth and ambition is West Ham United.

The Hammers have made really impressive progress since David Moyes returned to the London Stadium as manager way back in December 2019.

West Ham finished 6th in the Premier League table last season and qualified for Europe. Meanwhile, Newcastle ended up in 12th spot last term and are currently sitting second from bottom having taken just three points from their opening seven league games.

Things are about to change though.

Not only have West Ham got to compete with the so-called big six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, but we have to fight off competition from ambitious clubs with superior finances to us like Aston Villa, Everton, Wolves and Leeds.

Moyes is already fighting with one hand tied behind his back. That’s fine, there are always ways to win without money of course.

Having limited funds just makes that job a whole lot harder though.

Finishing inside the top six regularly over the course of the next few years was going to be a huge challenge as it was.
