Paul Gascoigne at 50: English football has never seen another player like him

England's Paul Gascoigne (l) is consoled by teammate Steve McMahon (r) after their defeat on penalties to West Germany in 1990.
Gazza's tears at the 1990 World Cup will always be remembered.

The 2016-17 season was the 25th of the Premier League era, but no single individual player has contributed as much to the popularity of football in England that effected the breakaway from the old Football League as Paul Gascoigne and his performances at the 1990 World Cup.

For those of a certain age, Pavarotti's performance of Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" can only be accompanied by an image of a tearful Gazza, bereft after receiving a yellow card that meant he would miss the final -- though England...

Rafael Benitez makes Newcastle believe again as Toon seal promotion

Steve Nicol is not surprised at all with Newcastle's promotion under Rafa Benitez, who's reputation continues to grow.

Newcastle have achieved promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt, after Rafa Benitez guided them through a tricky season in the Championship.

They were expected to dominate the division, but ultimately found things a little tougher going and will, in all likelihood, finish second behind prospective champions Brighton.

So how have they done it? How different is this Newcastle team to the one that has played in the Premier League previously?

Who's the manager?

At the start of the 2015-16...

The key to Premier League promotion? Find a style that works and stick to it

Newcastle are a Premier League veteran, and thanks to Rafa Benitez, they're close to a return.

Back in September, it seemed as if a wearying and familiar pattern would repeat itself. Garry Monk didn't get off to a good start at Leeds, and with the team in the bottom three of the Championship before a 2-1 win over Blackburn, the vultures were circling. One vulture in particular: According to a number of reports, Monk was to be the latest manager sacked by notoriously impatient owner, Massimo Cellino.

Skip forward six months, and Monk is still in situ while Leeds are fourth and looking...

Newcastle United flop Xisco finds redemption in Thailand

Hulk and Oscar appear to be coming into their own in the CSL as they continue their fine form for Shanghai SIPG.
Jason Dasey and Stanely Bernard discuss Thailand's future after winning their record fifth AFF Cup.
At a young age, Charyl Chappuis' passion for football was ignited. Delve into the story of how his love for the game has evolved.

Xisco Jimenez has been at his new Asian club for less than nine months, but he's already achieved more than during a miserable five years in England. One goal in 11 Newcastle United appearances, across three different competitions between 2008 and 2013, saw the Spaniard regularly shipped out on-loan and named on more than one worst-ever list.

His £5.7 million signing at St James' Park was seen as a graphic example of the excesses of the dysfunctional era when Dennis Wise was the club's executive...
