Eddie Howe – We Dominated The Ball – A Big Win With Great Spirit



Newcastle played quite well to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 yesterday at the City Ground, and a win is a win; we’re sure picking up 7 points from the previous 3 league games will give our lads some confidence.

We currently sit 7th in the league but we could drop down further after the results of today’s game; if West Ham get something out of their game at home to Arsenal today we will slip to 8th position.

Newcastle’s head coach Eddie Howe seems pleased with the performance even though our defense seems to be a little shaky at times yesterday.

This is some of what Eddie Howe said after the game:

“A big win, great spirit especially in the second half. We played well in the first period.”

“We dominated the ball and controlled the game but then came in at 2-2, which was disappointing.”

“I think it was a win based on real quality in the first half and spirit in the second.”

“I thought we dominated the ball in the first half and played really well. Without peppering their goal, I thought we had control of the game.”

“Second half we seemed to lose a little bit of energy, but that is where the spirit came through and where moments of brilliance; like Bruno’s winning goal, are certainly worth their weight in gold to us.”

“Bruno was playing as an 8 and then we moved him around in the game and he then scored as a 6, it is crazy how things happen.”

Lewis Miley played further back so Guimaraes could play a more attacking – box to box – central midfield role and that’s his best position because he can score goals – as he proved yesterday.

When Tonali and Joelinton are back next season it will be interesting to see what role Guimaraes will be given, but we must bring out his goalscoring skills somehow.

Two goals yesterday and only 3 goals all season for the Brazilian, but he can score a lot more goals for us if he does play as a number 8.

Our next game is this coming Saturday, at home to Bournemouth and we will be expected to win that game – but it will not be easy.

It’s a cliche yes – but very true – no PL games are easy to win.

    Brave of you to support Burn. I went a bit far, gave him MOM even though that should go to you know who.

    Penalty? I think definitely not, Shearer said it was?!

    Dubravka has to decide early in if he’s coming out. Probably best if he stays put?

    Jane,
    You pointed out goals scored and conceded, that’s entertainers material! Think about how the score line went, last two games. We could’ve gone the easy way, just won the games after we went ahead, but that wouldn’t have been as much fun 😉

    Mund,
    A different outlook on your own team is called bias and my whole point.

    You are the thickest footer I’ve ever know to cross social media. Everyone can see through your tripe and BS

    Bigging myself up for being a rock for supporting my wife when our son was touch or go to live? Eh? You really are a piece of shit that needs a back hand slap right across the chops.

    He is a good lad as he followed the toon from day one not Liverpool. Shame on you

    The Pl should give 20-30 million to the most entertaining team, every season.

    After all, it raises its value, more revenue.

    Winner thus far? Obviously haven’t watched all pl games, but I would guess the easy winner is Nufc.

    Ofc it is but like I said it’s easier to accept when it’s for you and harder when it’s against you.

    Accepting it doesn’t mean you agree with it as I said it would of been soft the other way round of given but that’s the way the cookie crumbles at times and we have our fair share against us.

    What about away to PSG? No corruption in that? Absolutely blatant!

    Already explained that but not patient enough to read it son. Have you ever travelled outside of the Boro, beyond a day trip to Newcastle?

    That pen could easily have gone against us, the end. To say its a stonewall non pen is own team bias. Just be glad it wasn’t at Old Trafford etc and Isak in on goal.

    Exactly Mund, when they go our way it’s fine, when it doesn’t it’s corruption.

    my opinion on the penalty,
    ” no penalty ” was right decision,

    the strikers first touch let him down, he never gained any control over the ball after that the ball was always moving away from him, from then on he was looking for the foul to save his blushes

    You’ve just cherry picked words when my point was it’s not bias if you accept it but say we were lucky to get that as it happens across football all the time and some decisions you win and some you lose. The PSG game and penalty tho that was corruption IMO

    You still haven’t explained why you deserted a local professional club with a decent fan base after ( apparently, ahem ) getting trials for them.

    I presume if we had been crap like we have been for many of the years I’ve supported them, you wud have stayed with Boro?

    So it was probably the glitz of the entertainers that caused you to desert your local football team ?

    Interesting.

    In our last 5.5 PL games we have conceded 17 goals.

    Until this issue is solved we aren’t going anywhere this season.

    NUFC lose Tonali, Willock and Joelinton and fans think we can twat teams 😆 three of our squads senior CMs out for majority of the season. Middle of the park is as weak as water meaning defensively we are under a lot more pressure and nothing we can do about that.

    Who said I got trials for the Boro…? 😆

    Howay Jackanory tell us another corker

    Another clarification post…

    I had trials at a few places and the only one I mentioned on here I can remember was Darlington as I spoke about playing with James Coppinger a former Newcastle player and Doncaster legend.
