Eddie Howe turns up to work at 6.45 am – and Newcastle Twitter is thoroughly impressed

Newcastle United’s recently-appointed boss Eddie Howe wasted little time in getting on with his new job at St. James’ Park.

The 43-year-old who took the reins from erstwhile manager Steve Bruce didn’t even bother waiting for sunrise, arriving as early as 6:45 a.m. to commence his maiden training session with the Magpies.

The former Bournemouth man turned quite a few heads with his diligence at work, galvanizing support from home fans who haven’t had much to cheer about in the recent past.

Magpie supporters lauded Howe, who decided to link up with his squad at the earliest, instead of waiting till after the International break got over.

“Turn’s up for work, that’s more than we’ve had previously.” wrote a fan, which was reflective of the abysmal state of affairs under their previous manager Bruce who was notorious for scheduling training sessions per his convenience.


Having signed a 2 and a half year contract with the new Saudi owners, the Englishman has his work cut out for him with Newcastle tottering in the relegation zone, yet to get off the mark in the wins column.

Having already made a mark since his arrival to North-East England, Eddie Howe would be looking to get off to a bright start, with his first assignment being Brentford FC.
