Jules & Andy: An imminent takeover at Newcastle and Mesut Özil faces criticism

The dynamic duo are back for a brand new episode of Jules & Andy on Football Ramble Daily and, boy, do we have some interesting stories to get stuck into.

With the Saudi Arabian-backed takeover at Newcastle United appearing imminent, we speak to The Associated Press journalist Rob Harris about the mechanics of the deal, what still needs to be done and how Mike Ashley will be remembered at the club, should he finally disappear into the ether.

We also discuss Mesut Özil's decision to reject a proposed 12.5% pay cut and how much of the criticism he's received is unwarranted, as well as celebrating some ordinary football news for a change: Ashley Young has signed a new contract at Inter!

We'd love to here from you in these unprecedented, chaotic times - email us: julesandandy@footballrambledaily.com or tweet us @JulesBreach @AndyBrassell @FootballRamble
