Here Is Eddie Howe’s Press Conference In Full For Brentford Test



Here is Eddie Howe’s Press Conference for tomorrow’s home game against Brentford.

It would be great if we could get back to our winning ways after three defeats in a row after beating Aston Villa 5-1 in our first home game of the season.

We have just 3 points in our 4 games so far this season – hope we can make it 6 points after tomorrow’s game.

It looks like Sven Botman could be available, bnut it is probably too early for Sandro Tonali to play and we would expect Sean Longstaff to get his first start of the season.

Howay The Lads!!

    Keep reading and hearing a lot about our lack of a number 6, but I don’t buy it. Tonali and Longstaff can both play that position. I dont know why we haven’t seen either one of them in the role as yet, but feel quite confident we will and then we’ll see the midfield firing, and even more so when Willock returns. This might be a tough one for us, because ideally you’d rest all three of Tonali, Bruno and Joel, but then you have a midfield of Longstaff, Miley and Anderson, which I’d love to see, but is quite a leap of faith for Eddie Howe, when we really do need a win.

    Novo I chose players I grew up watching and/or know very well of. Baresi unfortunately never seen him play. Thats why likes of beckenbauer cruyff van basten are not on my list

    No they cant play no.6 (no. 4 position for me anyways as 6 is cb imo)

    We need a specialist cdm who knows that role instinctively.

    Until we get that kante type we will struggle

    To think that someone hasn’t the even smallest amount of imagination to create his/her own avatar, and steal another person’s.

    A number 6 is a load of shite as long as all
    Yer midfielders are clever enough and mobile enuf to do most things.

    Nowt worse than seeing a Declan Slice or Eric Dire sat in front of a back 4.

    Granted Kante was a great midfielder who did much more than sitting. He was so much more than a ‘number 6’.

    When he was at Leicester Drinkwater was more of a 6, Kante was a proper box to boxer. We need three of them. And are close to it.

    Sitting in front of back 4 would have reduced all them massive gaps between midfield and defence.

    Mind you the gap was smaller than the one Uncertain Toon the Certain Mackem has between his front teeth

    Brighton was a one off, a stand out horrific performance. Agreed gaps between the lines all the time.

    Wont happen again any time soon.

    If Gordon plays on the right does that reduce our attacking threat as when on the left he cuts inside and can shoot or make a telling pass. Hopefully Barnes does the same.

    Miggy struggles to hit the byeline to cross perhaps that’s what Gordon will bring.

    Let’s get behind Brentfords back line as that will bring us goals.

    tannerabag, give it a rest about BDB, the fella is a Geordie warrior who has done fantastic for us at LB as he was a main part of one of the best meanest defences in Europe last season. He was crucial to our defence, end of!!!

    Aye the avatar thief is just a bad rotten smell that won’t go away, just like a shite that won’t flush away or like a boomerang with shite on it. Proper cretinous pest of the highest order is all it is. Definitely a dole Waller hillbilly also, not a days graft in it and one of the reasons why the country is so f***** with the likes of it stinking the place up!!!

    TFG; how did you grow up watching Pele and not Baresi?
    He played in the same Milan side as Maldini but you include him.
    He was a superb player. Check him out on YouTube

    TFG,
    Simple really, some Brentford fans are vocal that they should not play a 3-5-2. A bit like you are vocal about several things repeatedly and repetitively. Admittedly I could have chosen a better word, do you have one in mind? – I bet that if there are busy typing it then they say it out loud to people too btw.

    It is not my fault that you asked how a minority can be more vocal (which actually they can) and I pointed out that I didn’t actually say that anyway so then you changed the question.

    😀
