Eddie Howe has given his press conference for the absolutely crucial game at home to Watford tomorrow afternoon.
While we have signed two excellent players in Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood have been signed for around £35M in total, we still need defenders brought in pronto to plug our extremely leaky defense.
There’s no chance of doing that before the game tomorrow’s game, so Howe will need to choose from the current defenders he has available.
A win will see Newcastle fans in wonderland, draw and we haven’t lost ground on the Hornets and a defeat will be a second devastating one for Newcastle and will continue to sound the alarm bells, in both Newcastle and Saudi Arabia
Here’s what Eddie Howe said about transfers and our latest transfer recruit – Chris Wood, in this morning’s press conference:
“We’re looking. We’ve got time left in the window and we know we need to move quickly and try to add more players.
“We’re still active in the market, but no immediate news to give you.”
“Nothing will be new to him, nothing will faze him. He’s a person I admire as well from speaking to him.”
“Getting to know him in a very short period of time, I’ve been hugely impressed with his character and his attitude.”
Over 70% of our fans think we can win the game tomorrow against the Hornets – let’s hope they are right about that.
It will be very difficult to take another home defeat, in front of another sellout crowd.
