Indeed, their Boxing Day loss at home to Nottingham Forest could have been their worst of the season thus far in the Premier League. Despite being disappointing, the pre-Christmas defeat to Luton was a relatively close contest in which Newcastle had a goal ruled out.


On the contrary, despite Chris Wood’s hat-trick, Forest had the potential to cause further harm to Newcastle.


‘Months’ have passed since Eddie Howe disclosed what Newcastle have been failing to do effectively.An incredibly concerning performance that even club legend Alan Shearer described as “shocking”; progress is required.


Following the contest, Eddie Howe discussed the developments that have transpired in the background.


Eddie Howe discusses the one thing Newcastle has been failing to do effectively “for months.”

In fact, the manager of Newcastle stated that his squad has been unable to train effectively for “months.”


“I believe we were not too far apart today,” he stated (as cited in Lee Ryder).


“Practically, we may need to train for the first time in months.”Newcastle: An immediate improvement is required.

Neglecting Newcastle’s frantic schedule in the midst of an injury crisis as a contributing factor to their unmanageable decline would be imprudent.


While it may be overly simplistic to attribute the current malaise exclusively to that, as some individuals, including Shearer, have suggested, it is impossible to ignore.


Howe has demonstrated his prowess as a coach by generating enormous returns from players such as Joelinton, Fabian Schar, Sean Longstaff, and Miguel Almiron throughout his tenure.


Given the reduced number of games in cup competitions, Howe will have an increased amount of time to train, which suggests that he may once again be capable of performing some of that wizardry.


If he is unable to resolve the issue despite the additional time spent in training, this season will truly begin to deteriorate.


Without a doubt, things must progress rapidly.
