Eddie Howe’s Press Conference For Tough Game At Manchester City

Here is Eddie Howe’s actual press conference for the upcoming game at Manchester City tomorrow, where we haven’t won a league game in 23 years – maybe we can do that tomorrow?

Yes – I made a stupid mistake (another one) when I put the press conference article out earlier this morning, from Eddie Howe – it was the one from 5 months ago – I was wondering why Howe kept talking about the Cup Final.

Silly me – and I am sorry about that.

It also appears that we have been successful in acquiring Lewis Hall, and there were multiple reports yesterday that Newcastle had agreed to a fee with Chelsea for the 18-year-old left-back, who is so well-regarded.

Eddie Howe talks right at the beginning of the press conference about how he really likes this young player.

Our recruitment team knows how to get these deals over the line and never seem to give up.


How Will Newcastle Fare Against Manchester City?

    Only odds worth taking, under 0.5 goals (i.e. 0-0), 12.9/1, a fiver placed.

    Now, the odds for under 1 goal are 11.2/1. What’s the difference to the previous bet?

    I think Man Cities plan this year is to bring the youths through. Nows probably a good time to get them. I’m optimistic. We have a decent chance of maybe getting an away draw.

    I love how Eddie doesn’t rise to the bait raised by the press and other managers, such as Klopps comments on our use of the technical areas and the question about hosting Saudi teams at St James’.
    That match against LIverpool on 27/8 is going to be insane because you can really sense how Klopp hated not getting 4th last year.

    This new rule restricting the technical area to one coach is ridiculous.
    It’s a restraint of trade.
    Howe and Tindall operate as a team and should be allowed to work as a team on match days.
    All they have to do is book coaches who try to mess with the 4th official and/or kick off when decisions go against them.
    Utterly pointless.

    I think it will b hall and Gordon down the left side Gordon seems to cut in more than Barnes which leave the overlap open for hall to swing the cross in r to drive on into the box he seems comfortable on the ball and can beat a man teams coming together nicely ?

    So Eddie has said that Hall is our last signing in the window, bet that’s a cunning ploy, another one incoming! 🙂

    Betty, Comment #15 from last post. edited.
    “Why can’t the women’s team manager just be respected and congratulated for the wonderful achievement of guiding the girls to a first ever final which hopefully we win”

    The women are the current European Champions. So I believe they may have been in a final recently.

    As for your statement ” hopefully we win” can’t agree more 🙂

    EGB. I watched that press conference. It could be taken either way so one more (IMO) is probably out there. I doubt anybody on this blog (apart from the wums THATILOVE) believe other than we have had a tremendous window.

    Stuart Pierce actually stating that we could win the league!. I am taking Martoon’s “break” if we sign other players, and changing my predictions.

    I hope that sell on clause bit is incorrect!

    I’d say a sell on is fair if the selling price is cheap but with the alleged add ons then adding a sell on is excessive for an 18yr old imo!
    Anyway it won’t be anything to worry about for a good number of years so il just enjoy the fact Eddie has another piece of his master plan! 😉

    I had a poem prepared about yesterday’s Greenw***d discussion, but as I’ve just seen that it’s now subject non grata, I’ll spare you.


    I saw that Kimjongtrump posted that joke #3 on your favourite site Sickipedia yesterday.

    Is that you or do you just nick all his stuff?

    What’s a radar key, do all ‘spoons pubs have loos at ground level, some being key activated?

    Just asking ‘cos there.may come a time…

    All, I think, Wetherspoons have “Disabled Toilets” and are assessable with a radar key if you don’t wish to ask a staff member.

    Most, if not all, disabled toilets around the UK are opened with a Radar Key.
    It’s well worth the £3 that they cost (eBay price) when you need “To Go”

    Shouldn’t you be giving your full attention to the safety of your ship and its passengers? Think about what happened to the Titanic as its skipper was blogging!
