Sean Dyche welcomes Eddie Howe back and talks about challenge of facing Newcastle United

    For a long time, Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe were the longest serving managers in the Premier League.

    Both appointed in 2012, that run was broken in 2020 after eight years, when Eddie Howe resigned from Bournemouth after relegation.

    When Sean Dyche was appointed in October 2012 at Turf Moor, it was Eddie Howe who he replaced, as the now NUFC Head Coach headed back to the south coast and Bournemouth.

    Eddie Howe back in management now for 24 days and Sean Dyche says he texted the Newcastle Head Coach when he got the job in early November, wishing him well.

    Now they face each other in a real relegation six pointer…

    Sean Dyche pointing out the obvious, that no matter how much (or how little) cash is made available for Newcastle United to invest in players in the future, for the rest of this month at least, it is all about what Eddie Howe can get out of the players that he inherited.

    Sean Dyche press conference on facing Eddie Howe and Newcastle United – Thursday 2 December 2021:

    “I am pleased to see him [Eddie Howe] back and I texted him, said I hoped it goes well, though not against us obviously.

    “Eddie will still be finding his best mix at Newcastle United and whilst the [likely] longer-term money [available for signings] is very beneficial, in the short-term you have to find a way.

    Eddie knows that and [anyway] the January transfer window is tough [to get the right signings], even if you have money.”

    Relegation battle:

    “They are all important games and it was a strong performance last night defensively [away at Wolves] but not so much offensively [in a game that ended 0-0].

    “We still have our belief in being able to get points on the road in the Premier League [despite no wins this season away from home].”

    Injury situation:

    “It’s going to be weeks of recovery for Ashley Barnes and we’re monitoring Dale Stephens.

    “Bardsley is also a niggly one so it’s not likely that he will be in the squad for the weekend.”

    Form going into the game:

    “We are in a good place in sense of performances but we are trying to find those right details.

    “We did this with our defence last night [at Wolves] but we need to ask more questions in other areas.

    “I think we are in a good place once everyone is fit, as the squad may well be needed and I think we have one {a squad] here that continues to be competitive.”
