Eddie Howe Wants More (And More) From His Newcastle Side



In his first two weeks at the club, Eddie Howe and his staff seemed to do a fantastic job in training our squad.

Not only did they look fitter against Brentford last Saturday, but the lads were attacking at every opportunity.

But we didn’t get the win.

And that was due to our Achilles heel – the defense, and although Howe will not be at the training sessions this week, he’s still working hard in his hotel room (suite?) on the Quayside.

With nothing much else to do (and being a long-term workaholic) Eddie will be planning each training session for this week in great detail – much like he did last week.

Work is definitely needed this week on our defense, and we’re sure Martin Dubravka will be back in goal in London.

It’s a very tough game away at Arsenal, and we hope Eddie can make the trip to London – but we doubt it.

And it’s not impossible, we can take something out of this game.

Howe will have a match plan to win the game – and that’s what we need – to get the monkey (no wins) off our backs – the sooner, the better.

We were hoping we could win against Brentford and thought we would get nothing at the Emirates – but a win in London is exactly the lift we now need.

This is some of what Eddie has said in the Chronicle today:

“Whenever a new manager goes into a new club, you always look at fitness levels.”

“This is not disrespecting anybody’s regime, but you always want a little bit more.”

“You want more from any group you take over – I am no different.”

“I’ve come in and want a little bit more out of them, they are a fit group but I think we can top that up and make them a little bit stronger.”

“Late in games hopefully that can make the difference for us.”

“We have implemented a couple of changes to their training to try to help us with that.”

“Ultimately they are fit, and they have shown that in stats this season.”

“They have not been too bad fitness-wise.”

“It’s more a case of getting 2% or 3% more out of them.”

Howe seems to be an excellent coach, and let’s hope he can quickly get the best out of the squad we already have before January rolls around.

Remember, that these players were playing quite well for Rafa Benitez, and last season we got 16 points from our final 8 games under Steve Bruce.

But we must get that first win on the board.

Hopefully, we can do that on Saturday.
