An ugly ownership battle, controversial signings and the hiring of a high-profile manager.

Yes, it promises to be an enthralling Barclays Premier League campaign for the Toon Army.

While Thursday's announcement of the 2007-8 premiership schedule was met with great fanfare from all clubs, most eyes darted to the combustible affairs Newcastle United will partake in, and for good reason - given the relatively tame summers of the "big four" (Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool) the Magpies put forth a lion's share of tabloid fodder.

In the front office, a heated battle between owners Mike Ashley and chairman Freddy Shepherd (dealing from his hospital bed, the subject of a punctured lung) turned ugly when Ashley launched a takeover bid.

Things were just as rocky closer to the pitch, as newly appointed manager Sam Allardyce cleaned house upon his arrival, releasing six players and signing two talented headcases in Joey Barton and Mark Viduka. Thrown in the return of local rival Sunderland to top flight football, and Newcastle could produce more dramatic storylines than a harlequin romance novel.

Notable Newcastle
Key Magpie Dates:

  • Saturday Aug. 11th, @ Bolton
    The Skinny:Sam Allardyce returns to Reebok Stadium, where he guided Bolton for eight successful years. "Big Sam" oversaw Bolton's promotion to the Premiership in 2001, and led the Wanderers to their first ever UEFA Cup qualification in 2005.

  • Saturday Aug. 25th @ 'Boro
    The Skinny:
    Mark Viduka's first game back at Middlesbrough after four years at the Riverside. Viduka turned down overtures from 'Boro to join their north east rivals on a free transfer.

  • Sunday, May 11th @ Man City
    The Skinny:
    The Magpies' final league match will also mark Joey Barton's return to the Eastlands. Barton's City legacy will not soon be forgotten; his assault case against former teammate Ousmane Dabo is still pending while squabbles over an unpaid loyalty bonus persist.

The Big Four

The 21st century has brought an undisputed powerhouse quartet to the Premiership, occasionally infiltrated by the likes of Everton and Newcastle. But in large part, this foursome has defined what elite English club football is.

Last season, Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool made the semi-finals of the Champions League; Arsenal and Chelsea competed for the League Cup Final; Man Utd and Chelsea played for the FA Cup. It should be noted that it has been 12 years since one of the big four clubs did not win the FA Cup - Everton's 1995 victory over United the last time an outsider did the trick.

Derby Days

The importance of local derbies has never been lost on the Premier League. Despite an influx of non-English footballers and the steadily-growing divide between rich and poor clubs, geographical and historical rivalries still breed contempt amongst the clubs.

A look at some of England's key derby dates:

Manchester (United vs. City)

* Saturday Aug. 18th @ City
* Saturday, Feb. 9th @ United

North London (Arsenal vs. Tottenham)

* Saturday, Sept. 15th @ Tottenham
* Saturday, Dec. 22nd @ Arsenal

Tyne-Wear (Newcastle vs. Sunderland)

* Saturday, Nov. 10th @ Sunderland
* Saturday, April 19th @ Newcastle

West London (Fulham vs. Chelsea)

* Saturday, Sept. 29th @ Chelsea
* Tuesday, Jan 1st @ Fulham

Merseyside (Everton vs. Liverpool)

* Saturday, Oct. 20th @ Everton
* Saturday, Mar. 29th @ Liverpool

New Kids On The Block

Three teams make their return to the Premiership: Birmingham, Derby County and Sunderland.

Birmingham will open the campaign against FA Cup winners Chelsea, while the 2007 Coca-Cola Championship winners from Sunderland will start with a home date versus Tottenham. Derby - who scratched its way into the top flight via a play-off final - will also begin at home, taking on Portsmouth in what will be County's first Premier League Match since 2002.
