NUFC release new Amanda Staveley interview – Major investment plans, Howe & January discussed

Newcastle United have released a superb in-depth interview with co-owner Amanda Staveley this afternoon.

The clip sees Staveley discuss Eddie Howe’s appointment, her first five weeks at the club, our big ambitions for the future – including plans to ‘build a new Academy’ – and planning ahead for the January transfer window.

Staveley insists that Howe is the “perfect fit” for the club and comes in following a “robust” search for Steve Bruce’s long-term replacement.

Not only that, she claims the former Bournemouth coach was approached prior to the takeover going through, suggesting they’ve held a long standing interest in the 43-year-old.

The Yorkshire-born financer also reveals how herself, PIF and the Reubens took a “risk” purchasing the club when they did, admitting it would’ve been easier to hold back and assess our position in the table after the January transfer window.

She’s also vowed to communicate with fans – promising to admit to mistakes when they are made – and claims to have been sleeping only ‘3-4 hours’ a night as she works night and day to plan out investment across all areas of the football club.

Watch the brilliant interview with NUFC TV below:

  1. Gerard running scared to Villa, Conte to Spurs and Emery staying put it seems their egos and fear of failure prevented them from coming to Newcastle and went for easier options.
    It’s a good job Eddie Howe has shown his credentials as a brave manager who is up for the challenge, this is exactly what we need!
    He deserves to succeed and is a breath of fresh air in an industry where some managers think they have right to be successful without doing the hard work.

    🙁 B/S Ms Stavely he was not 1st choice. Other managers you wanted made their comments loud and clear. They did not want to manage your club. 😛
