Eddie Howe agrees a deal in principle to become Newcastle manager. He must be off his head, they’ll eat him alive!
To be fair, it kind of makes sense. No matter how much they were hoping for it, they were always going to struggle to find a world class manager willing to take on the challenge, so they just had to settle for someone with potential. Similar to what we did with Rodgers (although in our case, it wasn't because of a lack of attractiveness).
I'm not sure he's the right man for the job though. They do need to build everything from the ground up, so someone with more experience might have been better. Oh well, I hope their project fails anyway, so it's all good.
