You have to feel Eddie Howe.
The contract with Newcastle United is only three weeks, so far he has already signed with Covid, watching the first match from the hotel room and using the latest technology from the hotel room. He trained the players, confirmed that the defense cost of 2 points was low against Brentford, and showed a clear denial. 0-0 penalty in Arsenal …
… And this Tuesday night, Ciaran Clark made a shocking error just nine minutes after trying to clear the ball, exacerbating the error by pulling back Norwich’s player and picking up a red card.
At that point, what was a “must win” game soon became a “must not lose” game with a demoted rival.
Even if Callum Wilson gives Newcastle a lead in the light of that red card, if there are 10 men over 80 minutes of the game, this should be considered a point, not a two-point loss. I have.
Eddie Howe was very restrained and was willing to throw a player under the bus, as the previous head coach was always pleased with …
Ciaran Clark leaves after 9 minutes:
“In a cold day, I think Cialan will probably make another decision, but at that moment, perhaps the urge made him stop the striker.
“It’s probably a red card, but these things happen in the game.
“My immediate reaction wasn’t really to focus on it.
“It was to understand what we had to do very quickly and try to find a solution to the problem.
“The last thing I wanted to do was get Ryan Fraser off the pitch, but I felt I had to do it for the team.”
“I think the team has a win … I really believe so.
“We needed to improve our defense and performance, and I thought we did that tonight.
“Further improvements are expected in the future, but I think we have seen improvements.
“Obviously, the attackers of the team suffered from the red card tonight, but we believe the team has a goal.
“We believe we can do that.
“I still believe it’s in our own hands, but obviously in every game we can’t win, it gets harder.”
Federico Fernandez returns to the pitch:
“Fede came and I thought he was absolutely amazing.
“He came in and made a big difference to the team.
“He was the ultimate professional.
“He is the true leader and respected person of the group. I think he has proved to be a good player today.
“I thought he kept it brilliantly.”
