Jason Tindall insists it will take time to “fix” things at Newcastle United, but said Eddie Howe and the new coaching staff are encouraged by the signs in their first game in charge.
With how about Absent, Tindall and the back team ordered a lap of appreciation after the 3-3 draw with Brentford as they felt the near-selling fans deserved a reward for their continued support.
In fact, having fallen behind twice, Newcastle struggled to claim a point and almost won it of late.
Joelinton’s first goal of the season coincided with the return of the attacking ball to St James’ Park.
However, it was his defensive efforts that left the coaching staff completely delighted as he found himself as the last player to come back in the closing stages as Brentford tried to clinch the three points.
Right from the start, though, Joelinton seemed to be in the mood for a Howe 3-4-3 formation that seemed to really suit him.
Eddie Howe has transformed Newcastle United into a more “strong” and “offensive” side after less than two weeks with the players.
Although Howe was unable to lead his side at St James’ Park on Saturday, having tested positive for COVID on the eve of the game, the impact of the new coach was acutely felt.
Frank had an idea of what to expect – Denmark analysts were 90% certain that Newcastle would line up at 3-4-3 as they eventually did – and warned his side to expect the hosts to come press us.
Dommett’s recent injury
Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett is hoping to be back in action next month after a frustrating season with injury.
The former Wales international has not been seen playing for Newcastle since pre-season when he appeared in the second half of the 1-1 friendly draw against Rotherham United at New York Stadium.
After sustaining a calf injury, he was then selected to return in September but suffered a setback in training.
As things stand, he’s the only absentee in Eddie Howe’s new squad, but he’s eager to overcome his injury woes and impress the new player.
Darlow Tony’s plan
Evan Toni has revealed his knowledge of the ‘low and strong’ shot against Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow and insists there is no point in proving his return to St James’ Park.

Nathan Ake and James Tarkowski are the two defenders Newcastle United are likely to target in the January transfer window – according to bookmakers.
Howe’s side put in a thrilling offensive display, but the defensive issues that have hampered their campaign so far have proven costly in their bid for a first win.
Newcastle are expected to spend the January transfer window following the takeover, with the priority likely to stabilize a defense that has scored 27 goals in just 12 Premier League games.
Dozens of names have already been linked – some more speculative than others – but bookmakers see Newcastle as a strong contender to sign a number of goals in the mid-season window.
Among the offensive options listed are Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Aaron Ramsey, but there are two clear favorites when it comes to defenders who might be tempted to sign at St James’ Park.
Manchester City defender Nathan Ake and Burnley center midfielder James Tarkowski have been linked in recent weeks, and bookmakers consider Newcastle in pole position to sign both in January.

Bruce Campbell support
It’s safe to say that not many Newcastle fans were expecting Steve Bruce to be linked with a Manchester United job when he was finally relieved of his duties at St James’ Park, but that is what Sol Campbell did after the Red Devils’ 4-1 win. Loss at Watford.
Campbell was on a judging assignment for PL TV analysis And the question arose of what Manchester United could do with regard to an interim manager, if they chose to dismiss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which they announced later on Sunday morning.
The former Magpies centre-back has stated that it would be too costly to fire Solskjaer – knowing they could have their eyes on a big target in the summer – they might want a cheaper option as manager for six months.
