Keith Downie has revealed some enticing news that he has now heard from Newcastle United involving Eddie Howe.
The Lowdown: Another win for Newcastle
The manager won his eighth game in charge of the Tyneside club on Friday night as they beat Wolves 1-0 at St James’ Park thanks to a penalty from Chris Wood.
They have had an amazing turnaround since the departure of Steve Bruce and now find themselves 10 points clear of the relegation zone with just seven games left to play this season.
The Latest: Downie reveals Howe effect
Speaking to This Is Futbol, Sky Sports journalist Downie has revealed that Howe’s work ‘behind the scenes’ has been noted by the players. He stated:
“Without doubt, he puts so much work in behind the scenes and you hear that from the players who talk about him, and I think that has shown in the performances and the results.”
Should Newcastle have hired Howe?
The Verdict: Enticing
It certainly is enticing to hear of how much Howe is committing to Newcastle and just how much his work is being appreciated by the players.
Things got pretty toxic in the end under Bruce, with reports of some players being ‘angry‘ with him over his tactics and training schedule.
Nonetheless, they seem to have settled very quickly under Howe, which is impressive considering the number of fresh faces who came through the door in the January transfer window.
The Magpies now look all but safe from relegation in the Premier League, when the situation looked rather bleak before Howe came in.
