Newcastle United fans have responded to Eddie Howe’s team news for their huge clash against Watford at St James’ Park, and it appears the fans are buzzing with Chris Wood being handed his full debut.

The manager made the decision to start Wood, leaving the Newcastle fans absolutely ecstatic as they are desperate for a win today.

Will Chris Wood be a good signing for NUFC?





Wood became the second signing of the window on Tyneside, making the switch from relegation rivals Burnley earlier this week.

It was confirmed in the announcement from the club that the New Zealand international was available to make his debut today and make his debut he does.

Replying to the Tweet about the team news, the Newcastle supporters were not afraid to hide their jubilation, making their feelings known in the replies.

How many seasons did Siem de Jong spend on Tyneside?

Watford currently hold a two point advantage over Newcastle and Burnley in the league, but they do have a game in hand over Newcastle. So while a loss today isn’t the end of the world until we know the result of that game in hand. A Newcastle loss could be disastrous.

Even at this stage of the season, you have to be taking points off your rivals, especially in the home clash. This game is the definition of a ‘six-pointer’ with the win pivotal to either side.
