Eddie Howe warns Newcastle players amidst declining form and injuries

Posted : 27 December 2023

Newcastle United's manager, Eddie Howe, has issued a stern warning to his squad, emphasizing that no player is guaranteed a spot in the team amidst their recent poor form. The Magpies suffered a 3-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest, marking their fifth loss in seven games, including an early exit from the Champions League and League Cup. Howe, facing an injury-hit squad, expressed his readiness to make necessary changes, stressing that players must perform consistently to earn their places.


The challenging schedule of 10 games in 30 days in December took a toll on Newcastle, with injuries further complicating matters. Howe, contemplating the upcoming January transfer window, emphasized the need for players to be accountable and earn their spots through performance. Despite their recent struggles, the manager, backed by the club's Saudi owners, acknowledged mental fatigue among players who faced a demanding schedule without sufficient training ground time.


The defeat to Forest disrupted Newcastle's seven-game winning streak at St James' Park and raised doubts about their ability to replicate last season's top-four finish. With upcoming fixtures against strong opponents like Liverpool and Manchester City, coupled with an FA Cup clash against Sunderland, Howe acknowledged the challenges but attributed some struggles to the demanding schedule affecting training routines.
