‘It’s Very Intense’ – Magpie Explains Howe Impact On Training Sessions



During the press conference for Brentford last Friday, Eddie Howe singled out Jonjo Shelvey as a player who had impressed him during his first few weeks as Newcastle manager. The head coach said the following about the playmaker:

“I knew how good he was having played against him. But then when you work with him you realize he’s an incredible technician and can play all sorts of passes, long and short.

“In terms of our philosophy, he’s someone who’ll be very important to us.”

Shelvey picked up a calf injury after the opening match of this campaign. After suffering a setback, he didn’t return until after the takeover was completed. The 29-year-old came on as a substitute against Tottenham but was promptly sent off after receiving two bookings.

He started the draw at Brighton and was again in the starting eleven against Brentford. Shelvey put in a fantastic performance with five key passes in what was just his 5th appearance of the season.

The midfielder has given an interview with NUFC TV and was asked about the encouraging words his new manager gave him last week. This was Jonjo’s response:

“Obviously when a new manager comes in you don’t know where you’re going to stand. He said when he came in ‘everyone’s got a clean slate.’

“Everyone’s just really jumped on board with what he’s trying to do.

“It’s obviously nice to hear things like that said about you. Especially from the man that’s going to be picking the team and the man that’s going to be leading you.”

It’s a good sign that Shelvey has been impressive in training as he could be a pivotal factor in the fight for safety. He’s one of the few players in the squad who can spray the ball around the pitch.

Shelvey has fully bought into Howe’s philosophy. That means grueling sessions at the training ground to get the lads in tip-top condition. Here is how Shelvey described training under the new boss:

“It’s very intense. It’s something where you’re on it every single second of the day. You’re constantly thinking about football.

“I believe that’s the way football should be played.

“Since he’s come in he’s galvanized everything. Everyone has bought into what he wants to do.

“The last international break, I’d be to sleep by 8 o’clock every night because I’m just shattered from training.

“It takes getting used to. I feel like the lads are there now. We’ll keep working day by day and week by week. Hopefully, we’ll get the results to go with the performances.”

    This is getting a tad weird now as I wasn’t speaking to you I was speaking to Rob so I don’t actually have to explain anything to you.

    Like I said I didn’t mention anything about Rob being bullied.

    Point proven? Or is there more?

    Rom – it’s a tough call but I don’t have the inclination to look back through posts so I’m awarding it to you based on the fact you asked for it… That in itself is a call for help and I’m here to answer you .. mental health being very woke at the moment 😀

    I don’t think Mund said anything about bullying. It seems my comment to Irish was played on and things went from there. Anyway we’re all big boys so it shouldn’t matter. As far as subject matter, it appears that anything, even football, is discussed on this blog.

    And I know about bullying from personal experience growing up in England and Canada. My oldest daughter was severely bullied by a gang in high school. Had to get the police involved. Some girls were expelled but it marked her. There is nothing amusing or light about bullying.

    Lads ive also been very impressed by Wor Eddie`s assisant coach Jason Tindal he also comes across as very professional and confident and intelligent, and doesn`t look in the slightest overawed working without Eddie at the moment, also the clips of the training with the players look so efficient and everyone seems to be happy and really buying into the philosophy of the new coaching team, i have no doubt Newcastle are on the right road and will have a very successful future no matter what happens this season.

    so sorry to hear what your daughter had to go through,one of my daughters had to go through the same.
    It certainly brings home what bullying actually means…
    We were fortunate to know the head of a fairly close (ish) school and got her transferred..
