How Newcastle’s board now feel about Eddie Howe’s future, the pressure is starting to build.



As Newcastle’s board currently considers Eddie Howe’s future, pressure is beginning to mount.Eddie Howe is under tremendous pressure externally due to Newcastle United’s elimination from two competitions within a week, but his internal perception within the club is what truly matters.

Newcastle must achieve a few favorable outcomes as the year approaches, notwithstanding the club’s current sixth-place standing in the division.According to a recent report from The Athletic, while Howe’s current status at the club is not threatened by the board, he is undoubtedly under duress to achieve long-term success.


The form of Newcastle must improve this weekend.

This coming weekend, Newcastle have the ideal opportunity to alleviate some of Howe’s burden by traveling to Luton Town in the Premier League.


Despite having lost four of their last five games across all competitions, the Magpies should be encouraged enough by last Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Fulham to regain some confidence and resume their season.Additionally, they have the opportunity to secure their second consecutive away victory of the season, which would be their first since September’s 8-0 victory over Sheffield United, and temporarily put to rest this apprehension regarding playing away from home.


According to the report, any potential pressure to dismiss the 45-year-old is solely emanating from the fanbase or media. However, poor performance is unquestionably heightening the strain on him overall.Still supported by the Newcastle board is Howe.

Despite suffering eliminations from both the Champions League and the Carabao Cup within a week, Newcastle are completely confident in Howe’s ability to steer the ship towards another European finish.


Howe will also be expecting that, in anticipation of the January transfer window, the board will invest in him and his staff to assist with the club’s injury crisis, which has persisted for months.


The precise amount they will be required to spend is unknown, but the club is undoubtedly interested in acquiring a few new players in order to maintain parity with their domestic competitors.
