Eddie Howe scare set to be resolved as he looks set to be in the stands at Brighton – Various

A few hours ago, a concerning exclusive emerged from The Mirror claiming that Eddie Howe’s proposed move to Newcastle United was in danger of collapse.

The piece stated that he had failed to secure a deal for one member of his backroom team and that our new owners were standing firm – leaving Howe considering his next steps following 24 hours of intense talks.

Thankfully, updates have since arrived from North-East reporters Craig Hope (The Mail) and Luke Edwards (The Telegraph) that insist the 43-year-old WILL become our new manager.

Both state that Howe will be at The AMEX tonight to watch our crucial clash with Brighton and expects negotiations around incoming backroom staff to be finalised in ‘due course’, with The Telegraph reporting that he’s ‘looking forward’ to starting work at St James’ Park next week.

Here’s what both have had to say:

So, it seems all will be fine in the end and he’ll start work next week.

After the Emery saga ended in tears and talks with Howe threatened to drag, let’s hope his arrival is officially announced before the weekend is out.

  1. He does want a number of staff and added to that is Jones.
    Too many coaches are superfluous and can cause problems as well as being expensive.
    That shows the decision to guarantee Jones a place on the coaching staff whatever happened was totally stupid and unnecessary.
    The manager should dictate who he wants to work with when taking the job.
    Of course other reports are saying he wants a sporting director of his choice. That IS the decision of the owners not the manager.
    I think the consortium need to stamp their authority from the beginning.


  2. Depends on what he’s meant to be asking for.

    “Why didn’t Celtic manage to appoint Howe? A source close to the situation has revealed that Richard Hughes – Howe’s choice as a potential sporting director – refused to move to Celtic. While the club weren’t exactly enamored with the idea of Howe bringing what would effectively be a director of football with him, it was Hughes who proved the most unwilling to go.”

    If Howe is demanding the same here, then he should be told where to go as well.
