Eddie Howe Speaks Out On The Australia Trip

Eddie Howe seems to be all for the  two-game tour of Australia at the end of the season, when the lads will fly to Australia after the final league game this season on May 19th at Brentford.

This is what Eddie Howe has said about the two-game visit:

“This is a great opportunity to showcase Newcastle United at two iconic venues in an iconic city as the club continues to grow globally.”

“We are privileged to have so many incredible supporters around the world, and it’s a chance to be able to play in front of many in Australia who wouldn’t ordinarily get the chance to see the team.”

“We look forward to engaging with our supporters in Melbourne and giving them the opportunity to feel closer to the club.”

This is the Newcastle statement put out yesterday which shocked our supporters:

“United will travel to Australia following the conclusion of the Premier League season in May to take on Tottenham Hotspur and the A-League All Stars in Melbourne.”

“The Magpies will kick off the city’s Global Football Week event at the world-famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Wednesday, 22nd May, taking on a Spurs side managed by one of the city’s favorited sons, Ange Postecoglou.

This will be really hard on some of our players, but on the other hand, it will be over by May 25th once the squad has made their 22-hour and 21,000-mile trip back to England.

What do you think?

    I think Jib may have passed away, apparently not been seen on twitter for a couple of years and hasn’t touched his FPL team as it automatically reregisters. Could be in jail as well mind, hopefully for him the latter.

    shay Robson,
    Unfortunately I think the popularity and affordability of the smart phone had an adverse affect on the blog. Instead of lot’s of different people popping on and off at different times of day and night when given access to a pc/lap top, the blog became dominated by a smaller group of posters with access from anywhere to out shopping with the Mrs to pottering in the garden. Imo anyway 🙂

    Hi Shay Robson, good to see an old name pop up on here. Don’t really post these days, but am an occasional lurker (less and less as time goes on).

    Hope you’re keeping well.
