Pat Nevin on Newcastle United – This is excellent

1 month ago

This is great from Pat Nevin.

I always thought he was one of the better pundits, compared to your average former player in the media, which isn’t difficult…

However, Pat Nevin really seems to get it, when it comes to Newcastle United as a club, as well as when he is talking about the NUFC fanbase, as well as Eddie Howe…

Pat Nevin speaking to BBC Sport:

“Of all the Premier League matches this weekend, maybe Newcastle’s win against Crystal Palace was the most impressive performance, alongside Aston Villa’s.

“Roy Hodgson’s teams are never easy to beat but the Magpies made it look simple.

“Their attacking pace was frightening, the standard of the football impeccable, but the most impressive sight was the quality available on the subs’ bench.

“It was the strongest bench by some distance in the league this week.

“They will all be needed as I suspect they will cruise through what is the toughest Champions League group this season and then go deep into the knockout stages, while yet again pushing for a top four Premier League finish.

“The biggest problem with squads of this size and quality is always the same one.

“It is keeping everyone happy and still motivated, even when they aren’t starting.

“Fortunately, this is Eddie Howe’s super skill, so they should be fine.”
