Newcastle United: Journalist reacts to Dan Burn’s ‘crazy’ training insight

Newcastle United: Journalist reacts to Dan Burn’s ‘crazy’ training insight -Newcastle United News

Journalist Mark Carruthers has been giving his reaction to some insight from Dan Burn into Eddie Howe’s ‘crazy’ Newcastle United training regime.

The Lowdown: ‘Crazy’ regime

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily (via Newcastle World), Burn gave some insight into Howe’s training methods at St. James’ Park, sharing that they are ‘intense’ and ‘a lot longer’ than what he was used to at Brighton and Hove Albion, adding that the ‘crazy’ thing is that Howe never seems to run the same session twice:

“With Eddie now, the way that we play demands a certain level of intensity, and it comes every single day. The sessions are a lot longer than what I was used to and I took a little while to get used to.

“What I find crazy about the gaffer’s training at the minute is that we never really seem to do the same session twice. He’s got so many sessions saved, and every single day it’s something completely new.”

The Latest: Carruthers reacts

Taking to Twitter, Carruthers was left gushing over Burn’s insight, claiming that it gave a ‘real indication’ of how much of an impact Howe and his coaching staff have made in the North East:

“Love this from Dan Burn and a real indication of how Eddie Howe and his coaching staff have made an impact.”

The Verdict: Interesting

The kind of level that Howe is pushing his players in training is certainly interesting to hear, and is no doubt reflected on the pitch.

Since the beginning of the year, his team have accumulated the fifth-most points in the Premier League, only behind Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Should Newcastle have given Howe a new deal?





When Howe was appointed back in November, the Tynesiders were 19th in the table and five points off of safety (BBC), and now, after staying up last season, they sit comfortably in 11th spot.

It is clear that Howe’s training methods, however ‘crazy’, have helped the Magpies, and ultimately tuned them into a better footballing side.
