Official update published on Eddie Howe availability for Newcastle match at Arsenal

    Eddie Howe quickly got stuck into the job of trying to turn Newcastle United around, arriving before 7am to start work on his first day in charge and then having the players training for significantly more days in the international fortnight than had been the case under Steve Bruce.

    The players looking to have felt the benefit, appearing to be far fitter and ready for that 3-3 draw against Brentford, finishing the stronger team.

    However, typical of Newcastle’s luck, Eddie Howe himself wasn’t there to see and take charge on the day of the game, having tested positive for covid on the Friday.

    With ten days self-isolation to follow, as per Government guidelines, it appeared that Eddie Howe would only be back just in time for Norwich at home on Tuesday 30 November.

    However, after the 3-3 draw with Brentford, Howe’s assistant Jason Tindall said (see below) that actually they were hoping for intervention on the medical side of things that would hopefully see Eddie Howe back before this Arsenal match on Saturday.

    Wednesday afternoon has now seen an official update, with various media such as Sky Sports and The Times, saying that the club had officially informed them that on Friday the pre-Arsenal media duties will be carried out by Jason Tindall, not Eddie Howe.

    Yet another blow to hopes of a smooth transition into being the new NUFC Head Coach, with it now looking very likely that it won’t be until just before that Norwich game next Tuesday, when Eddie Howe can be involved again.

    However, both The Telegraph and The Mail report that Eddie Howe hasn’t given up all hope of leading Newcastle United for first time at Arsenal on Satueday. However, he will have to return a negative test to be released from isolation (with symptoms traced back to at least 10 days before the Arsenal game).

    Jason Tindall speaking after Newcastle 3 Brentford 3 – Saturday 20 November 2021:

    “It wasn’t the result we wanted because we set up to win the game.

    “I think there was a lot of positives to take from an attacking perspective and a physical perspective.”

    Jason Tindall on the atmosphere:

    “It was incredible.

    “Every time we have been here as opposition you can only admire it.

    “Since we’ve been here we’ve been made to feel welcome and you can see how important the fans are to the team.”

    Jason Tindall on the week ahead:

    “We’ll review this game back first and foremost.

    “Once we’ve given the feedback to the players, all preparation and focus goes to Arsenal.

    “Hopefully we’ll have Eddie back by then but we’re waiting on the doctor for that so it’s out of our hands.”
