Supporters of Newcastle United have recently reacted to a report on the potential for Eddie Howe to replace Steve Bruce as the Toon’s boss.
A recent report by Chronicle Live, discussed speculation surrounding the possibility of Mike Ashley replacing Bruce at St. James’ Park.
Supposedly, the former Bournemouth manager, Howe, is one of the bookies’ favourites to take the hotseat in the north east should Bruce get the chop.
However, there is also speculation of Howe replacing the struggling Neil Lennon at Celtic Park.
This led Chronicle Live to suggest that time is running out for the Toon to try to appoint the former Cherries gaffer and they should ‘make their move’ in the next 24 hours if they want him.
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say about the report on Eddie Howe?
“When have this lot done anything except wait wait and wait some more until its too late”
The 43-year-old Englishman left the Cherries during the summer after almost eight years with the south-coast club in his second stint in Bournemouth (per Transfermarkt).
Who would you rather have managing Newcastle?
“The Eddie Howe ship has sailed now I think”
“I can’t imagine him wanting to come here to be honest.”
Having been with the club initially from 2008-2011, he returned to the Cherries in October 2012 after a stint with Burnley.
Over the duration of his second tenure at Dean Court, Howe oversaw 355 matches, in which he managed to win 144 and draw 75, losing 136.
“Need to aim higher/better than him”
As can be seen in these responses from Newcastle fans, there was a mixed reaction from them regarding the speculation on Howe replacing Bruce.
