A new era at Newcastle United began last week with the belated arrival of our ambitious new owners. They’ve been a breath of fresh air compared to the outgoing regime.
We’ve already heard of their ambitious plans to turn Newcastle United into one of the top clubs in the world. However, they have responsibly stressed that it will take a bit of patience to reach the pinnacle of our new journey.
There is plenty of work to be done in building Newcastle into a powerhouse but also in the interim. Newcastle’s dismal start have us in the relegation places and without a win this season.
The journey begins against Tottenham on Sunday at a sold-out St. James’ Park. The place will be absolutely rocking with hopefully more than a few Wor Flags waving. The atmosphere is going to out of this world.
It’s unknown at this point whether Steve Bruce will be on the touchline. He’s surprisingly still kept his position despite reports he would be let go with Graeme Jones taking over as caretaker manager. As of now, he remains the head coach.
On Monday, co-owners Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi met the players and coaching staff. They also took in the afternoon training session which the club released footage of.
The video confirmed that Callum Wilson, Jamaal Lascelles, and Martin Dubravka were back in training. The status of the trio for Sunday is unknown but they are getting very close to a return.
Joe Willock has also shaken off the knock that forced an early exit at Wolves while Jonjo Shelvey got almost 80 minutes under his belt for the U23s last night. The vice-captain hopes to play some part on Sunday.
Spurs have had a tepid start to life under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo. However, they corrected a three-match slide in the league with a win at home over Aston Villa before the break. They are currently 8th in the Premier League.
