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.

🙂

    So, Hibbit, We have signed a known loser. 🙂 I really don’t know him but we do seem to make good signings.

    Chinese speciality is boiled dog followed by fried cat. They also do a fried budgie with noodles.
    In fact anything that moves gets hoyed in the frying pan.

    Best Toon 11 in living memory?
    Yep
    Even Gallaghers 1927 team lost more away games than it won.
    Prop only the great Edwardian team might surpass it for now.
    Within 2 years we will have both England full backs.
    Watch out for an upset tomoz

    I’m wondering if Lewis Hall could eventually become club trained for the purposes of the champions league squad.

    I think he would have if we’d have signed him last week before the season kicked off.

    Well, that`s my tenner on the Toon for the title, at 14-1 at Betfred, a daft bet but hey, it`s football and owt can happen, what`s a tenner anyway.

    Glad we got young Hall in the bag, the majority of Chelsea fans are up in arms about losing him,, rating him better than 60M Cucurella.
    I will take a Chelsea fans judgement over anyone`s opinion on here re Hall, they have seen plenty of the lad, and our owners have got it spot on in the transfer market so far so i think he will be a superb addition.

    For the first time in living memory the club has a strategy apart from buying marquee 9s and focusing on forwards.
    An actual plan

    For me Hall goes straight in team.
    Tino will share the spot with Tripps and make it his own next season

    jimiley,

    Not sure Hall would go straight into the team considering Burn has done nothing wrong, in fact he has played well, albeit it`s not his best position.
    I think Hall will be phased in gradually like one or two others have been by Howe, but in the long run i think Hall will eventually be first choice.

    Mr Tuff, you clearly don’t know the half. You should see what some of them eat, albeit generally just the older folks. I’ve given most it a try but cats and dogs have been banned for some time. Although still being scoffed occasionally in the villages. But if you were as poor as them you’d do the same. You should try the brains and intestines and all that stuff.

    Hall is excelllent.
    35 million for 18 year old and Burn cost 13.
    He can do things going forward to give us a new dimension.
    All we have to do now is score from corners. Irons scored 15 goals from corners. How many extra points would we have?
    Sick of pundits saying we have the biggest team and drooling over Tripps delivery. Zero goals!!
    When we defend we attack the ball and clear it. When we attack Botman and Schar just stand on spot and expect the ball to land on their head. They never get a sniff

    On the off chance that Eddie might change the team for tomorrow just to confuse Pep I have gone for the following making one change from the obvious lineup.

    Be boring if we all pick the same! 🙂

    Pope

    Tippier Schar Botman Burn

    Tonali Bruno Joelinton

    Murphy Isak Gordon

    Bonjour Mesdames et Messieurs!

    About Chelsea and FFP, i just read UEFA have now a five year cap about contracts to calculate FFP.

    So in PL, no problem, but what will happen if they qualify for a european competition?

    I the days of yore there was some strange stuff in our English diets.

    Me dad loved, pigs trotters, Cows heels, tripe, brawn, he would regularly get a pigs head from the local slaughter house and make his own.

    Rabbits were often on the menu, and sometimes horse, never had dog or cat though at least I don’t think so!

    Just watched episode 2 (I promise, no spoilers) & something occurred to me..

    How stupid were the chairmen of the 18 PL Clubs that immediately after our takeover, voted to effectively create artificial barriers to our ability to succeed?

    First, it was stupid because should any of them in the future be taken over, the barriers also inhibit their prospects but more importantly,

    How did they expect us to react? Roll over to get our tummies tickled?

    The history of Humanity has clearly shown that it’s in our DNA to fight like tigers against injustice. The more you try to stop us doing something, the harder we’ll come at you.

    In upsetting the new ownership of NUFC, they’ve created a collective ambition to be absolutely the best, No1 football team on the Planet, and they’re now determined to move mountains to bring that success here. 🙂

    What a bunch of plonkers, we may have been happy to toddle along and slowly do our best if they’d left well alone, but their interference has guaranteed, the gloves are off and we’re coming after the lot of them. No wonder a few are now scared, they should be.

    I think this is appropriate.

    EGB, fitness tracing 1st. Find out where he is on the Eddie fitness scale?

    He may well get a couple of U21 run outs, but I think he’s being targeted for the LB spot asap.

    Good point Cleveleybob and great tune.
    An interesting write up on a Man City blog. Saying that we should get used to being treated like crap by the premier League.
    They say like them we are not part of the EPL cartel and like them we have gate crashed the party and their mates don’t like it. They actually speak highly of Newcastle and say it’s not only unfair that they should have to play Saturday night but it’s also unfair to our fans that they have to try and get back to Newcastle after such a late KO.

    Sad to hear that the Lasses first game has been cancelled as Halifax would not travel and miss watching the World Cup Final. Shame that the compromise of a later start was not accepted.
