It’s been a little over a year since Eddie Howe became the #NUFC manager.

In that time he’s taken a team from relegation favourites to one challenging at the top end of the Premier League table.

In this 🧵, @Edit_Kev takes a look at How(e) things have changed 👇
It’s fair to say that when Eddie Howe took the reins on Nov 9th, things did not look good for #NUFC on the pitch. It’s easy to forget just HOW desperate it was.

Despite the high of the takeover, the team sat 19th in the Premier League without a win & just 5pts from 11 games. 👇 ImageImage
Before Howe’s arrival under the leadership of Steve Bruce (& three games led by Graeme Jones) #NUFC (🔴) were so far behind the league average (🔵) in both Attacking (left image) and Defensive (right) output.

The team performances were as bad as it gets 👇 ImageImage

Another brilliant win for Newcastle at Southampton. They are genuine Champions League contenders, especially when their 2022 form is considered rather than just 14 games this season. They are playing with style and swagger.
Howe marks his (almost) one-year anniversary as manager with 71 points from 41 games. Only Kevin Keegan took more from his first 41 matches. 23 calendar-year wins in the Premier League is also Newcastle's best return in 20 years.
What impressed me most was how clinical #NUFC were. Almiron showed composure for the opener & has seven goals in his last seven. Wood's finish was instinctive. Trippier's ball cut open Saints allowing Willock to score. & Bruno's fourth was so measured and accurate from distance.

1.Liverpool have one of the greatest managers seen in football. He has produced miracles with sensible revenue based budget. FSG have to realise even world class managers need tools to keep recycling the team. It was criminal to put all eggs in one basket on Aurélien Tchouaméni
2. Liverpool let attackers Mané, Minamino & Origi leave in the same window & replaced with ONE ATTACKER ONLY. Can you see the pattern? The club are banking on luck with injuries. Eilte clubs shouldn’t be operating this way.. Banking on Jurgen Klopp magic will only get you so far.
3. Liverpool were in the perfect position when won the league in 2020. They had high elite players at the right age. At this point adding 2/3 first team players every summer with the right age bracket (19-24) was the perfect model. #LFC sleep walked into ageing team. Baffling.

If Villa are going to become more difficult to beat (especially Away) they need to improve on these areas (summed up by this early chance for Wilson):

• Winning physical duels (Dendoncker) #1
• Tracking full backs (Bailey) #2
• Marking in the box (mix up w/ Konsa & Cash) #3/4 ImageImageImageImage
#NUFC’s press reminds me of peak Liverpool under Klopp. They always have at least 2 players around the ball.

Their team is very nicely balanced.

Their front 3 work hard (especially their Wide FWds) whilst their 8s are very athletic. And Guimaraes is super smart tactically. Image
When you watch NUFC the lack of technical quality (compared to the Champions League sides) is still evident.

What Eddie Howe is getting out of these players is amazing.

They each know their role within the formation, work extremely hard & react quickly on transition.

THREAD 🧵: Newcastle United 21/22 vs 22/23 - Tactical Analysis 🔎

Eddie Howe has thrived with a 4-3-3 formation at Newcastle United, but his adaptations within that to suit the players at his disposal between last season and this season have been particularly impressive. #NUFC
For most of last season, Howe’s 4-3-3 mid-block was pretty conventional. With Trippier mostly out through injury, and Krafth in his place, Howe was forced to have our fullbacks sat fairly conservatively.
The only intricacy was that we’d switch into a 4-2-3-1 at the start of the build-up phase. This meant Bruno Guimaraes would drop deep into the right channel to aid with ball progression.

Newcastle chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan tells Radio Eight, PIF were offered 30% in another EPL club, believed to be Manchester United. "[#NUFC] wasn’t the first offer we got. We looked in Italy, France & the UK."

PIF did explore Inter whilst takeover stalled. And also Bordeaux.
YAR adds: "In the UK there was a team that approached us to take 30% of the ownership, providing we didn't interfere at all managing the club, for £700 million... then we bought Newcastle. We bought the whole team for £350 million instead of having 30% for £700 million.”
YAR also cites #CFC sale price as an example of potential growth. PIF already work with Chelsea's majority owner Clearlake: "Chelsea was sold for $3.5 billion. So, my potential now is to go from £350 million to at least $3.5bn.” No suggestion this is with a view to then selling.

In advance of football clubs starting to publish their accounts for the 2021/22 season, I thought it might be helpful to share some 2-page financial overviews for each of the Premier League clubs for 2020/21, including a comparison against prior year and a 5-year graphical trend.
These overviews also include Premier League rankings for each of the main financial categories, e.g. which club had the highest profit, loss, revenue, wages, debt, transfer spend, etc in 2020/21.
One caveat with these figures is that revenue was significantly impacted by COVID in 2020/21 with match day reduced to almost zero, as games were played behind closed doors, while some broadcasting income was deferred from 2019/20 for matches played after the accounting close.

THREAD🧵: Alexander Isak - Newcastle United's Phenomenal New Forward

#NUFC are about to smash their transfer record, with the 22 year-old striker on the verge of signing for around £58m. Why's he so highly rated, and why have the club chosen to make him our marquee signing? 🇸🇪
Firstly, wow - what a huge signing, and a massive statement of intent. After years of austerity at #NUFC, bringing in a young striker who’s been courted by most of the top clubs in world football and was one of the breakout stars at Euro 2020, for £58m, is not what we’re used to.
Alexander Isak spent his teenage years widely recognised as a “wonderkid”, starting out at Swedish side AIK, before moving to Borussia Dortmund.

Real Sociedad snapped him up in 2019, where he’s had 3 fairly successful season on the whole (20/21 in particular).

Calling all #NUFC fans ⚫️⚪️

Want to know more about imminent club record signing Alexander Isak?

Luckily, we've been watching him for years.

His strengths, his weaknesses, the highs and the lows, stats, analysis and our verdict, all in one handy thread 🔽🧵

🧡🇪🇸⚽️ Image
Born in Stockholm to Eritrean parents, Isak is a 22-year-old Swedish international striker, with 37 caps and 9 goals to his name 🇪🇷🇸🇪

At six-foot-five, he possesses a surprising turn of pace for such a tall player, and is an excellent dribbler 🔽

Before arriving in Spain, the striker broke into professional football at AIK, before joining Borussia Dortmund 🟡⚫️

In 2019, he was loaned to Willem II, where he scored 14 and assisted 7 in 18 games 🤯

That tempted La Real to splash the cash - reportedly £13.5 million 💰 Image

Thread: Eddie Howe penetrates Pep Guardiola's tactical scheme

Each tactical approach has pros and cons when you determine to apply it, a lot of people praised Guardiola's ideas in the build-up phase, especially with the 2-3-5 shape.

Eddie chose to apply high & mid-press and mark the ball-holder and the options for the pass, so Pep lost his progression phase.
Let’s see 👇

When Newcastle United were bought by a consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, the expectation was that #NUFC would splash out on players, due to the enormous wealth of the new owners, but that hasn’t really been the case. So why is the club not spending big?
#NUFC manager Eddie Howe gave this answer: “Financial Fair Play impacts us and will continue to impact us for a number of years. We haven't got the free rein that maybe has been perceived within the media, that we can go and sign who we want and pay extortionate fees and wages.”
Despite the fact that #NUFC new owners had stated that their ambition was to win the Premier League in “five to ten years”, Howe sounded a note of caution, “We’re having to be creative and smart and try and make the right additions within the financial constraints that we have.”

In football money often talks, i.e. success on the pitch is almost invariably reserved for clubs that have spent the most on wages and transfer fees. However, it might be interesting to see which clubs have performed the best (and indeed worst) relative to their budget.
This thread will therefore look at how teams in the Premier League in 2021/22 performed relative to their wages, combined wages/player amortisation and squad cost. This is not an exact science, but just a bit of fun, as there are a few caveats to an analysis of this type.
First, I have used financial figures from the most recent published accounts, i.e. from 2020/21, so these are a year out of date compared to 2021/22 league position. Moreover, the last figures available for the 3 promoted clubs are from the Championship, so are under-stated.
