A number of Newcastle United fans have reacted after hearing details emerge of Eddie Howe’s first training session as manager.
Earlier this week, the Magpies announced that the former Bournemouth man would take charge of the club after signing a contract that runs until the summer of 2024.
Would you want Michael Emenalo as director of football at NUFC?
Having now overseen his first day with the club, journalist Craig Hope provided fans with some snippets of behind-the-scenes information.
In a tweet, he explained that phrases such as ‘we train as we play’ were used a lot, as well as terms like ‘match sharp’, ‘no jogging’ and ‘if you think you’re maxed out, you’re not’. Hope also added that the coach later watched the Magpies’ Under-11s team train.
Fans were soon engaging with the tweet expressing their opinions on the team’s new boss.
What did these Newcastle fans say?
Judging from the comments, these Newcastle supporters are already well and truly behind Howe’s new training ground methods. Hopefully, for the club’s sake, the players will be too.
Howe has a fair amount of work to do in the short term if he wants to give the Magpies a shot of Premier League survival this season. Indeed, he comes into the job with his side in the middle of the relegation zone on five points after 11 games.
