Albion recognise they will struggle to keep Johnstone should they go down but they are not prepared to let him go without a fight.

They value the former England U20 international highly and it is understood want optimum price from any suitors for a goalkeeper of his standing.

Johnstone has made more saves than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League this season, an indication of the pressure he has been under this campaign.

The 28-year-old has performed valiantly despite his side's toil against relegation this season

However, England manager Gareth Southgate selected him for the World Cup qualifying triple header against San Marino, Albania and Poland in March, saying: 'I’ve not worked with Sam since I was with the U21s. Now, he’s had several seasons of league football under his belt. Although the club have had a difficult season, Sam has maintained a good level of performance.'

Johnstone will have an England place in mind when he chooses his next club with the opportunity for regular first team football a priority in his decision.

Though Albion have yet to receive any formal enquiries, Sam Allardyce has said they will discuss Johnstone's future once Albion's Premier League status is resolved.

West Ham Board Member Resigns From Company as Takeover Speculation of London Club Grows

The potential takeover in ownership at ​West Ham United has reached a new level of speculation after it was confirmed that one of the club's board members, Tripp Smith, will be resigning from his current position at The Blackstone Group.

Smith, who is the director of the U.S. management firm, has a 10% share in West Ham United. According to Hitc it remains to be seen if this has any connection to American billionaire Paul Allen, who not long ago was heavily linked to potentially take over the club himself.

Allen is famous for historically co-finding Microsoft with Bill Gates and is the owner of the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL, as well as MLS team Seattle Sounders. He also owns a NBA side, the Portland Trail Blazers, and although it is just speculation, West Ham fans have been buzzing with excitement.

The possibility of a link up between Allen and Smith for a takeover at West Ham has not been ruled out yet. Smith's company, The Blackstone Group, has a history of doing business with Allen as one of its most recognised clients.

David Gold this season most notably the incidents that occurred at the London Stadium against Burnley at the beginning of the year, where fans ran on to the pitch in protest of the club's ownership.

Sullivan and Gold had to leave the stadium due to safety concerns, while fans have since called them out for selling lies about the club's ambition and the move away from Upton Park. The fans were also unhappy with the lack of spending the last few transfer windows.

Smith's indication that he will leave The Blackstone Group in the summer will be carefully monitored by the fans to see if that means a new opportunity at West Ham could be awaiting him.​

West Ham losing £2million a game, reveals Brady

West Ham United are losing £2million a match with spectators barred from attending games amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Premier League club's vice-chair Karren Brady has said.

Fans have not been allowed to attend matches since England's professional game restarted in June, leaving clubs in the lurch and lower league sides requiring a financial rescue package from the top flight.

"It's fatal for everybody. West Ham is losing £2million a match in lost ticket revenue and corporate revenue. Some clubs are losing as much as £10million a match," Brady told the BBC.

"You talk about the pyramid of football but there is also a pyramid within the Premier League. Right at the top you have clubs owned by sovereign states and right at the bottom you have those who are not.

"Everyone is suffering but just like smaller businesses, whether football or non-football, they don't have many cash reserves and that is what is happening to the smaller football clubs."

Brady said she was frustrated because outdoor stadiums are closed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus but matches were being screened at cinemas, adding that the "atmosphere is suffering" without fans in attendance.

"We couldn't have our supporters in which is literally why football exists but you could watch a game at the cinema, the O2 was open, the Royal Albert Hall was open, the London Palladium was open but open-air Covid-free stadiums aren't," she added.

"We are told it is early next March before we let supporters in. We have to do everything in terms of making people feel safe, giving the government confidence that we can provide these COVID-19 safe stadiums."

Gianfranco Zola ignited my love of football and is the sole reason why I support Chelsea.

He's easily my favourite player of all-time and since his retirement, I haven't emotionally invested in any other footballer since.

One of my favourite stories is Roman Abramovich finding out about Zola leaving Chelsea.

Abramovich attempted to buy Zola back from Cagliari. When the Italian club rightly resisted, the Russian attempted to buy the club.

It seems Chelsea have unofficially retired No. 25, but they must officially retire it in tribute to Zola's greatness.

American Billionaire Albert 'Tripp' Smith Buys Stake in West Ham to Join Hammers' Board

American Billionaire Albert &aposTripp&apos Smith has bought a 10% stake in London side West Ham, according to Sky Sports.

The businessman has acquired the last remaining block of shares left by the Hammers former Icelandic owners. And he also replacesꃚniel Svanstrom on the club&aposs board.

Smith has attended some of West Ham&aposs games this season, and it is understood that he purchased the shares as an individual, not on behalf of his company, Blackstone.

Founder of GSO Capital Partners, the 52-year-old sold the company to Blackstone in 2008 for $1bn and is now the manager of the asset management firm, which is based in New York.

Even with this latest development, the Hammers are still controlled by majority shareholders David Sullivan and David Gold, who bought their stake from CB Holding, the said Icelandic former owners.

CB Holding had obtained shares after Iceland&aposs Stramur Investment Bank collapsed in 2009, and this recent deal brings an end to an 11-year association between West Ham and Iceland.

West Ham&aposs board is now comprised by the following members: 

David Sullivan (co-Chairman): appointed January 2010

David Gold (co-Chairman): appointed January 2010

Baroness Karren Rita Brady (Vice Chairman): appointed January 2010

John Andrew Mollett (Secretary): appointed December 2012

Tara Warren (Marketing): appointed July 2015 

J Albert Smith: appointed September 2017

The club are the latest to have American involvement, but they&aposre certainly not the first. Manchester United,ਊrsenal, Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Swansea City are all controlled by individuals or companies from the United States.

Western Union completes the first transcontinental telegraph line

On October 24, 1861, workers of the Western Union Telegraph Company link the eastern and western telegraph networks of the nation at Salt Lake City, Utah, completing a transcontinental line that for the first time allows instantaneous communication between Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. Stephen J. Field, chief justice of California, sent the first transcontinental telegram to President Abraham Lincoln, predicting that the new communication link would help ensure the loyalty of the western states to the Union during the Civil War.

The push to create a transcontinental telegraph line had begun only a little more than year before when Congress authorized a subsidy of $40,000 a year to any company building a telegraph line that would join the eastern and western networks. The Western Union Telegraph Company, as its name suggests, took up the challenge, and the company immediately began work on the critical link that would span the territory between the western edge of Missouri and Salt Lake City.

The obstacles to building the line over the sparsely populated and isolated western plains and mountains were huge. Wire and glass insulators had to be shipped by sea to San Francisco and carried eastward by horse-drawn wagons over the Sierra Nevada. Supplying the thousands of telegraph poles needed was an equally daunting challenge in the largely treeless Plains country, and these too had to be shipped from the western mountains. Indians also proved a problem. In the summer of 1861, a party of Sioux warriors cut part of the line that had been completed and took a long section of wire for making bracelets. Later, however, some of the Sioux wearing the telegraph-wire bracelets became sick, and a Sioux medicine man convinced them that the great spirit of the “talking wire” had avenged its desecration. Thereafter, the Sioux left the line alone, and the Western Union was able to connect the East and West Coasts of the nation much earlier than anyone had expected and a full eight years before the transcontinental railroad would be completed.

Andros Townsend's telling statement about this Newcastle dressing room after 'divisions' in 2016

Andros Townsend believes Newcastle United players have &aposcome together as a group&apos to move eight points clear of the relegation zone after the former Magpies&apos winger experienced &aposdivisions&apos in the dressing room when the club went down in 2016.

Newcastle were in the bottom three when Townsend completed his £12m move from Spurs midway through the season five years ago and it was quickly apparent that all was not right behind the scenes.

Jamaal Lascelles declared &aposno one gives a f***&apos after he was sent off against Everton in the February and the defender, who led Newcastle back to the top-flight as club captain, said that &aposwe need players who care&apos following the black-and-whites&apos defeat at Southampton two months later.

Rafa Benitez had replaced Steve McClaren with just 10 games remaining and, despite a strong finish to the season, owner Mike Ashley simply left it too late to bring the Spaniard in.
