How Will Newcastle Do At West Ham On Sunday?



Newcastle have some welcomed recovery time after a congested two weeks that featured four matches, including the Carabao Cup. Eddie Howe gave the lads a couple of days off after Saturday’s scoreless draw against Crystal Palace.

Next up is a trip to West Ham this Sunday. The Hammers don’t have the benefit of rest as they take on FCSB in the Europa Conference League tomorrow evening. That will hopefully play to our advantage.

Both Newcastle and West Ham are in the headlines for the wrong reason after last weekend’s VAR debacles. Goals that should have stood were disallowed after pitchside reviews costing West Ham a point and Newcastle potentially three points.

While the Magpies have had a decent start, the same cannot be said for our opponents. West Ham started the campaign with three defeats in the league and currently occupy the 18th position in the table.

They have turned things around and would be on an unbeaten run if Maxwel Cornet’s late goal hadn’t been disallowed. Newcastle have faced defeat just once and that was due to some questionable added time at Anfield.

Hopefully we’ll see some combination of our three stars return. Callum Wilson, Bruno Guimaraes, and Allan Saint-Maximin have all been sidelined with hamstring injuries over the past few weeks. Bruno and Allan are close to returning which would provide a big boost this weekend.

    Up until we got our Eddie, Tuchel was who my cousin wanted as manager for us. She did some translation for him in the past and said about being such a great lovely bloke. His house keeper had a son with a heart condition, paid thousands for his treatment and when moving to Chelsea, bought her house back in Thailand I think and paid for her and sons flight back home

    Breaking news on PugNews. Chelsea in for Eddie Howe.

    I really should not joke about that! Maybe Fat Samini? As he always said, if I had an Italian sounding name I would have got a bigger club.

    magicmac54 – we’re not sitting together unfortunately but we’ll be able to meet up for a drink before or after the game at least! And at least my accent won’t give away my allegiances… 🙂

    Great article in Saturday Times about Chelsea and their transfers. Tuchel had no input.

    Also just seen that Giggs is getting a new trial next July. If I felt he was innocent, I’d say that’s a long time to have your career put on hold but I’m happy to see justice run its course. Dunno if he’s guilty of the crime or not but he’s definitely not a decent guy.

    Torygraph saying Potter.

    Boehly and his Clearlake Capital co-owners want a new culture at Stamford Bridge and decided that Tuchel is not the man to help lead it.

    Boehly and Eghbali’s initial plan had been to put their faith in Tuchel. He was given greater control in the transfer market and backed with more responsibility than any coach had enjoyed under previous owner Roman Abramovich. But 100 days of working together raised doubts over whether the relationship could be one for the long term. Instead, it increasingly appeared that Tuchel was perhaps better suited to the more detached management style of the past regime.

    Tuchel reiterated on several occasions that he did not enjoy becoming more involved in this summer’s recruitment process and consistently bemoaned the loss of Cech as the club’s technical and performance advisor.

    The fact the 49-year-old prefers to be left to work and solve problems on his own, along with his close circle of coaches, is not in line with the inclusive approach of Boehly and Eghbali.

    They want a coach who they feel comfortable bouncing ideas off and peppering with questions, even some that may seem tiresome to those with more football experience. There is also a desire for all of Chelsea’s departments to become more intertwined and cooperative.

    Crucially, the owners want a coach they can invest in for the future and who they believe is prepared to make an equal commitment. The first 100 days with Tuchel did not offer enough encouragement that he would relish their style or help create the culture they want to breed.

    Only last Saturday, Tuchel made it clear that he had little interest in involving himself in the appointment of Chelsea’s next permanent sporting director which again underlined his reluctance to operate more globally within the club.

    Chelsea’s co-controlling owners want it to be clear that the next head coach will be somebody who is invested in their project and who the players expect to be in charge for many years, and Potter would seemingly tick the boxes.

    Would chavs give potter the same amount of time/patience that brighton gave?
    Doubt it!
    They expect instant results.
    That’s the problem with teams now.
    Another vicious circle!

    Clint, don’t think so, their manager/head coach at LA Dodgers will have been there for 10 years when his contract ends.

    Boehly’s philosophy, and that of his partners, is to hire for the long term – as proved by some of Chelsea’s players being handed six-year contracts. Meanwhile, Dave Roberts, the manager of Boehly’s other major sporting interest, the LA Dodgers baseball team, has been in charge for seven years and in March signed a new three-year deal that will take him through to 2025 and a decade at the helm. Roberts has been through peaks and troughs, but, crucially, he believes in those above him just as much as they put their faith – and money – into him.

    The Times (saturday) also stated, what does this USA owner know about PL footie? It is as crazy as asking Fergie in his prime to organise transfers for a baseball team (Red socks for me). They do not know the landscape. But hey! is 6th up for grabs? rather than 7-8-9

    Surely Potter wouldn’t be able to resist that squad and CL football. Wonder if they’ve already sounded out his replacement or it was a snap decision.

    Apart from 10X the wages, I cannot see why Potter would go there for his 12 months before being sacked. Oh! just figured it out.

    I know it`s not ideal not getting tickets together, but as you say you can still have a few pints with the lads either before or after that match, at the end of the day you will all get to see the the Toon mate HWTL

    It would be a shame if Potter did take it. He’s building something rather incredible at Brighton and they’ve had a great start to the season. Would be a great shame to see him leave that as it looks to be improving each year. He could end up achieving something amazing there, whereas at Chelsea even if he won something it’d just be another Chelsea manager to win something and not that big of a deal. Compared to being a legend at Brighton and making history.

    Clint – that’s an odd thing to say. Why would you blame Potter for joining a bigger club with a better squad and Champions League football?

    Problem if Potter gets Chelsea job, is that it takes him out of the running for the next England manager.
    Our Eddie moves up that list….

    In my opinion I think Pooch looks a fit in the glove for that team. One of my least favourite teams – in fact I don’t like them at all!

    I think if I had to watch that lot – I’d not bother at all….. 🙂

    I hope Howe is as loyal to the club as i think he is because i think Chelsea might be sniffing around.
    Potter may be favourite but i wouldn`t rule out Howe as an option for them.
