With Tyneside still in peak takeover euphoria mode, it might be many more weeks, (if ever!) before that euphoria dissipates having listened to what Howe had to say. Not since 5th February 1992 and a certain Kevin Keegan was unveiled to an adoring public has a managerial appointment at NE1 been welcomed with such excitement.
“It feels fantastic to be head coach at Newcastle. I’m absolutely honoured, privileged. It’s an incredible moment in my life.”

Howe also announced that Jason Tindall, Stephen Purches, Simon Weatherstone and Dan Hodges will be part of his backroom team. He also stated that he is 'delighted' to work with Graeme Jones and believes it will be a 'perfect match'.
