Eddie Howe’s Indelible Promise To Newcastle Fans

There are many reasons why Eddie Howe is loved by Newcastle fans – even though we are going through a season that’s been completely decimated by unexpected injuries and suspensions.

Eddie Howe is adamant he will continue to play attacking football and the game on Saturday is a case in point  – 3-1 down after 47 minutes at home and it looked like all was lost.

But some good changes from the bench and we scored 3 goals in the final 13 minutes of normal time to win the game 4-3.

Poor Villa fans must have wondered what was going on.

This is what Eddie Howe said after Saturday’s game:

“I want a proactive team, we want to attack.”

“You have to accept you may be more open than a pragmatic team. But I believe it is our best chance for long-term success. Entertainers? I prefer another word.”

“Kevin (Keegan)’s team were ‘the entertainers’ – that is their tag. We want our own.”

“We have players coming off injured but the subs made a big difference. This can do a lot for us. We know we can turn games around, that’s positive.”

“I like winning like this, more than winning 4-0. They are moments you remember.”

“We go against Everton and now we can use this energy and confidence, momentum for the rest of the season.”

“We kept our belief. We played well offensively. Our attitude after being 3-1 down was amazing. Great feeling.

With Lascelles now out with an ACL injury through the end of this year and both Almiron and Livramento coming off injured on Saturday, we wonder what the team will be for tomorrow night.

But the fans will be there and another win is what we need – maybe without the late drama – some of us old-timers find the tension hard to take.

    For accuracy I sit right above where the players warm up and Barnes was warming up ready to come on probably for Murphy? So the injury just meant Murphy stayed on BUT Barnes was always coming on anyway!

    Ever More NUFC highlighting that full injury investigation will take place in the summer.

    This can’t be a standard review.

    Your earlier ramble suggests a mind deranged.

    Don’t try to be clever as all you do is make an even bigger fool of yourself.

    There seems to be an ongoing injury problem with all of the EPL clubs this season.


    Whatever the reason, it’s probably going to have an affect on us tonight!

    Never-the-less HWTL!
