Looking like a completely transformed player under Eddie Howe, the Brazilian didn't give the Clarets midfield a minute to breathe the ball as he rushed and harassed them. Introduced as a £ 40m striker, the 25-year-old now looks like a midfielder - and fans love it. Find the latest Newcastle United news here. While the win over Burnley, Newcastle's first win of the season, was largely driven by team performance, Joelinton stood out once more. Joelinton topped the charts for ground gains at seven out of twelve, winning seven of his 15 aerial battles, only second only to Jamaal Lascelles. Joelinton also showed his worth on the defensive, making three clearances, two tackles and one interception as Newcastle Burnley pushed for level. But statistics aside, there was a moment towards the end of the game that would have pleased most Newcastle fans more than anything - as Joelinton showed a bit of anger. He was back to United's left, blocking a cross and chasing the ball down - when it came to a throw-in, there was a clash with a Burnley player. He seemed to indicate that there had been contact with the back of his leg, and while poking your opponent in the chest was indeed a risky strategy, it showed the kind of anger and emotion that many in Joelinton's game missed. In the final moments, Joelinton, like an incredible Brazilian Hulk, was still putting his foot in the game, trying to keep Burnley from advancing - he fell to his feet as the final whistle went off. It was only a brief moment, but it was one that showed a change in Joelinton - that he was not afraid to move himself a little, to use his strength and not only for himself but also for the cause and his Team to stand up. It was just one more element of a great accomplishment from Joelinton looking for a place in Howes XI every week now.

My Newcastle United Matchday 15 Review

Newcastle 1 Burnley 0 - How about that !! - My Newcastle United Matchday 15 recap (Author: Gardener)

NewcastleWhat an exciting day for all Newcastle United fans and lovers. A first win of the season was badly needed and the full-time celebrations showed how much Newcastle 1 Burnley 0 meant to the fans at SJP and the new owners! The game started slowly for us as Maxwel Cornet and Wood combined seamlessly for most of the first half. However, that performance in the second half is the kind of material we're going to need from now on. I noticed an incident where he hit a ball over the head of his CB with no offensive player in sight. He's another player who could use some confidence and I'm pretty sure that clean sheet would give him a bit of life. Solid for most of the game. They would have been grateful to see Cornet limping and glad Rodriguez only had a few minutes on the court. Nonetheless, they did the basics - stuck with their husbands, spaced them well, kept a clean line. Willock is great at tackling tackles and winning a ball, but he's not a defensive midfielder. We need him to link up with the attack, and I hope Eddie Howe understands that. Shelvey had a good game. Allan Saint-Maximin finally penetrated the middle and got involved in a game to full effect. Good appearance from everyone involved. He made a tough chance look easy with a great finish that was reminiscent of Pukki's goal last time. Good game all round. Joelinton performed well too and looks like a confident man. He recorded a few shots where he would have passed the ball in the past. This team lacks big names but no skills. All they need is a manager to make them do their best. Eddie Howe seems to instill this confidence in the players and is gradually cementing his 442-4231 formation with the players. That weekend he made the right substitutions and switched to a five-man chain at the right time. Great starting grid and a great result. You'll be forgiven for thinking we won the Champions League full-time with that roar. SJP rocked the final minutes, giving the players the much-needed boost to end the game. Finally three points and even one goal! Who knows what could happen if we play the big boys in the coming weeks? What a time to be a Geordie !!!!

Everton, Leeds United and Newcastle United vie ...

Everton, Leeds United and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing the 30-year-old Juventus ace in the January transfer window. (Author: Gardener)

NewcastleEverton, Leeds United and Newcastle United are examining the possibility of securing Aaron Ramsey's services in the January transfer window, according to a report from the Italian outlet Calciomercato.it. However, while the Whites are only considering a credit setback, the Toffees and Magpies are ready to sign the 30-year-old on a permanent basis. Aaron Ramsey joined Juventus as a free agent in July 2019 after his Arsenal contract expired. It's gotten worse and worse for the 30-year-old this season, Massimiliano Allegri doesn't like him. However, the decline in his stature has no impact on potential applicants as Everton, Leeds United and Newcastle United are interested in him. Everton's interest is understandable when you consider that Rafael Benitez is currently facing a terrible injury crisis that has severely paralyzed his squad. So the Toffees are looking for several reinforcements for the January transfer window with Ramsey being a workable target to bolster their midfield. As for Leeds, the slow start of their campaign has forced the Whites to be on the lookout for potential midfield additions. As a result, the Whites have been linked to several midfielders, including Ross Barkley, with Ramsey also being a viable target. Finally, Newcastle United's much-anticipated squad overhaul could begin with the signing of Ramsey, who was identified as a possible target in January. However, Newcastle and Everton should have an advantage in the race to sign Ramsey as they are ready to sign him on a permanent basis, which fits in ideally with what Juventus are up to with the 30-year-old. Leeds, on the flip side, will only want to sign him on one initial before discussing a possible full transfer this summer. Juventus would prefer to redeem Ramsey as soon as possible, although it will be interesting to see if either Newcastle or Everton are ready to meet their price. If not, Leeds could be an option to sign the Welsh midfielder ace. Nonetheless, a return to the Premier League could be an option for Ramsey, albeit with a club smaller than Arsenal and Juventus.

Newcastle United is considering Nat Phillips with transfer pricing

Newcastle United could reportedly move in the transfer window for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips. The magpies certainly have money to spend. (Author: Gardener)

Nat PhillipsNewcastle United could reportedly move in the transfer window for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips. They claim Nat Phillips is one of several players on Newcastle United's shortlist. Phillips established himself as Premier League quality last season but cannot join the Liverpool team. The Reds saw all of their first-choice options over the summer, relegating Phillips to a backup role. And that may be generous - Phillips hasn't played in the league this season and only has a minute in the Champions League. This is how the teams can imagine their chances of signing the 24-year-old. Liverpool would likely accept offers, with the Athletic claiming there was a £ 15m price tag over the summer. Especially since the rest of the central defenders are doing very well. So Newcastle could see a very easy transfer, with Liverpool likely preferring that £ 15million rather than having a decent fifth-choice center-back. We would be disappointed if Phillips left the club in January. His heroics last season really made him popular at the club and in any other era he would have a permanent place in the squad. However, £ 15m could be used on a more valuable January signing. Liverpool certainly need more cover on the wings than any other center-back. At Newcastle, Phillips could be a bargain at £ 15m when battling FFP. As sad as it would be to see Phillips leave, this could be a pretty happy ending to his time at Liverpool.

Newcastle defeated Burnley for the first win

Callum Wilson scores the only goal as Eddie Howes Newcastle celebrates their maiden win of the season at the expense of teammate Burnley. (Author: Gardener)

BurnleyLast updated on. From the Premier League Eddie Howe believes his Newcastle side can avoid relegation from the Premier League after taking their first home win of the season against Burnley on Saturday. The win lifts the Magpies, who also conceded their first goal of the campaign, to 19th place in the table, tied with 10 points with bottom-half Norwich and 18th-placed Burnley. "We can safely stay awake," Howe said. Newcastle's win over Burnley this month will be followed by a formidable string of games, with games against Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United all to come before the turn of the year. "In the past we have said that you have to take points from the top teams and that will be the job in December," added Howe, who admitted ahead of the Norwich draw on Tuesday that the Magpies might have trouble in January Players win if they continue to keep their distance at the bottom of the table. "[The transfer window] will be important, but we like the players we have here and we have to maximize them first," said Howe. Burnley started brilliantly and made the better openings before Wilson struck, Maxwel Cornet came close twice and Johann Berg Gudmundsson hit the outside of the post with a distraction from Javier Manquillo. Matej Vydra also missed a great opportunity to equalize at halftime when he tame over the crossbar from Matt Lowton's right attack. Miguel Almiron was played through in the second half by Wilson, but failed in 26 league games due to a first goal from Pope. The visitors thought they had equalized with seven minutes left but Jay Rodriguez was offside after a pass from Ashley Westwood. It was far from nice, but Howe is hoping the nervous Saturday win can kickstart Newcastle's campaign - almost eight weeks after the Saudi Arabia-backed £ 305m takeover. The Magpies had failed to beat four of the eight teams directly above them in the Premier League prior to Sean Dyche's side visit, and they may have been lucky enough not to fall behind early when Burnley got off to a better start. But Newcastle improved after Wilson's opening game - Joelinton and Jonjo Shelvey were blocked before Willock shot over the bar after a cut-back from Allan Saint-Maximin. A second goal would have eased the palpable tension in St. James' Park, but Almiron was blocked with a great one-handed save from the Pope before shooting directly at Nathan Collins after cutting off his left foot on the edge of the box. Rodriguez defeated Martin Dubravka late with a sovereign finish but was denied a 100th career goal by the assistant referee's flag. Howe, who pounded in the air full-time, will be delighted with Newcastle's determined defensive performance, though rarely - in the first 20 minutes - were they bothered by a toothless Burnley. The guests registered 10 shots on goal, but their only legitimate shot on goal came from Cornet in the first half. Dyche's team have been in the Premier League without an away win since beating Fulham in May. * Our coverage of your Premier League club is bigger and better than ever - everything you need to know is here to make sure you don't miss a moment

Manchester United fights Manchester City, Newcastle ...

Manchester United, Manchester City and Newcastle United have all reportedly been keeping an eye on SL Benfica striker Darwin Nunez. (Author: Gardener)

NewcastleA recent report from Record, as submitted by Sport Witness, provides an update on the future of Darwin Nunez. The SL Benfica forward has drawn interest from major clubs across Europe, including Premier League giants like Newcastle United and the two Manchester teams. A Manchester United scout was among the participants during Benfica's game on Friday night against defending champions Sporting CP. While the striker didn't make much of a difference, the Red Devils appear to be one of the clubs that are likely to pounce on the player when the opportunity presents itself. Nunez has been one of Benfica's top performers since joining the club last summer for a transfer fee of 24 million euros. He was also useful in the Europa League, scoring five goals despite being knocked out by Arsenal in the first rounds. In only eleven games so far, as he has already scored eight goals, while his three goals in the Champions League have helped Benfica continue to fight for a possible place in the knockout phase before the penultimate matchday this midweek. Nunez's performances have not gone unnoticed, and Manchester United view him as a potential target amid Edinson Cavani's uncertain future. Nunez could prove to be an ideal long-term replacement, all the more so for the new interim boss of Manchester United, Ralf Rangnick, as the German thought leader prefers players who can offer speed and dynamism during the break. He is likely seen as a potential alternative for top target Dusan Vlahovic while Newcastle United aim to make Nunez their main attacker on the massive project to turn NUFC into one of the biggest clubs in world football. However, the report suggests that Benfica have no intention of parting with Darwin Nunez in January. They are expected to charge a staggering € 150million fee for his services over the next month, which means that those interested in the Premier League will have to wait until the end of the season to raise hopes for the striker to sign at a discounted price.

Steve Nickson's Home Scouting Mission and Steve Cook's Fascinating Option

Newcastle United's head of recruiting Steve Nickson was a little closer to home on Saturday (Author: Gardener)

Steve Nickson'sSteve Nickson's Home Scouting Mission and Fascinating Steve Cook Option for Newcastle United in January Steve Nickson, Newcastle United's Head of Recruitment, was a little closer to home on Saturday Receive our FREE Newcastle United Newsletters direct to email to your inbox by subscribing below Something went wrong, please try again later. Thank you for subscribing to him. In fact, the center-back was able to show his talent with 29-year-old Burnley defender James Tarkowski knowing that one of the clubs that wanted to sign him at the end of his Turf Moor deal was watching his every move. Find the latest news from Newcastle United here, in the money or not, United is looking to sign the classic midfielder as excellent deal, either for an extra fee in January or free in the summer. Fans watched Steve Bruce and his coaching team leave the Northeast while General Manager Lee Charnley also left his role as General Manager last month. But Nickson has so far spearheaded the soccer recruiting campaign, holding a closed-door scouting summit ahead of the 1-1 draw with Norwich City when the Newcastle talent team was called up for an important meeting for January. But when Michael Emenalo's representatives spoke of talks with Newcastle about a possible role for the former Chelsea supremo, the search continued over the weekend. Responding to the Emenalo's claims that he had turned down the club, a Newcastle spokesman said: "There is a thorough recruitment process going on to make sure we find the right person for the job." Whatever happens next month, Newcastle will have to move on with their own plans, with Nickson still very much on board with United. Eddie Howe, who tried to cope with expectations on the recruiting front and downplayed talk of wasteful spending in January, will also have some ideas. One such possibility could be Howe's former Bournemouth center-back Steve Cook, barely used by the Cherries but another whose contract expires this summer. The fact that Cook is represented by the same management company - USM - who work with Dwight Gayle, Jamaal Lascelles, Isaac Hayden and Callum Wilson suggests that Newcastle could be one of the first points of contact for its representatives regarding their next club . At 30 he would have something good to offer Newcastle and Howe was keen to make his old captain his first signing at Celtic before his move to the north of the border failed. Newcastle improved defensively against Burnley but on the eve of the game, Cook were utterly shy of Bournemouth in the 1-1 draw with Fulham and made the kind of blockades United could handle in the fight ahead of them. As the football world talks intensify in January, Newcastle fans are watching with great interest as the new hierarchy prepares for its first round of recruiting.

Back to the real Newcastle United with my 16 year old son

That was so special - going back to the real Newcastle United with my 16 year old son. (Author: Gardener)

16 year oldOver the weekend, at the request of the editors, I wrote an article about the three positives and three negatives of Newcastle United 1 Burnley 0, but I want to share more about this game, about what it meant to me and my son Euan. About a week before the game, I told Euan that we could go to the game on Saturday if he wanted. He laughed and said maybe he would let me know. It was an understandable reaction from a 16-year-old kid who only knew Newcastle United under Mike Ashley. Anyway, I told him it was different nowadays and he said ok. Even she seemed optimistic and thought we could win. My brother thought we were going to lose, but I told him things were different now and that we had our club back. I gave some kind of rousing speech as we ate our dinner that touched the north-south divide, the media misrepresentation of our club, and ended up with what we might become in the future. To the casual observer, it must have resembled a scene from something like "Golden Gordon" when I said we could win again while my mother sat with sunglasses that couldn't see after an eye operation, my brother and his Wife half a sip of wine while Euan texted his girlfriend. So Saturday came and we got up, ate and dressed. Euan wore a signed Kieron Dyer match shirt - the first time he had worn a match shirt in ages. We were on our way at 8:30 am when my mom asked me to call her to say I came to York to pick up our train, call her to say I arrived in Newcastle, ok to call her to say how the game went and call her to say I got home safely. I didn't call her but she did call me on the way home if you're interested, mainly to ask if we liked the sandwiches she made us! Anyway, it was in York that I got the first inkling that Euan rediscovered his pride in our club when he wore his coat so people in York Station could see his shirt, which he wore underneath. He said it was hot, but I knew it was about showing who it belonged to, what was important to him. An hour later we rolled on to King Edward Bridge and looked out the train window at the ground, our cathedral on the hill and feelings of belonging, excitement and hope began to flow through us. Things looked different this time on the way to the ground. We could win that. When I was little I used to go to the Gallowgate billboard, then later to the corner, but now I love going high. There really is no better feeling about approaching the prospect of Access Eight. It's like a journey of your own as you keep going up more and more stairs and then finally reaching the top. You will then be pulled forward by the noise and the whole floor will open up in front of you and beyond, one of the best views you can get over our great city. Truly unrivaled on any other floor. This time I stepped back and watched Euan walk through the doorway and into his, mine, and our floor to hear the roar of anticipation. It felt different. "That's great, papa," he said. I smiled and said "yes, it's" bleep "is Euan". We sang every song, got up on cue to show our love for the toon, and basically went insane when the final whistle went off with everyone else. I hugged Euan and in that moment he was back. How can you put this feeling into words? How do you describe what it feels like to rush home to the train but not get out of the crowd but you don't care and all you want to do is stay there and sing. This is what it feels like to be part of Newcastle United again. It feels like heaven.

Sven Botman is a "primary" January transfer target for Newcastle United

It was reported on Monday morning that Sven Botman was a "primary" transfer target for Newcastle United in January. (Author: Gardener)

NewcastleAn interesting report on Monday morning said Newcastle United are considering a move from Sven Botman. The Athletic's David Ornstein covered Newcastle's plans in January and said he "learned that one of their main targets is Lille center-back Sven Botman and the Dutch U21s". , Sven Botman was a big part of Lille's remarkable title win last season and ended up one point ahead of PSG. The young center-back started 37 of the 38 Ligue 1 games, helping Lille concede just 23 goals, PSG conceded 28 and the next lower was 42. A move for Sven Botman would be a massive letter of intent for the new owners of Newcastle United. as his form / talent has obviously not gone unnoticed. This season, Lille are only eleventh in the league, already 18 points behind PSG, but only five points behind third-placed Monaco. One of the main reasons why Lille has fallen in the league this season and has already conceded more goals (24) in 17 games than in the entire 2020/21 season was the absence of Sven Botman for seven games with a groin injury in October and November. In his last eight league games this season, Botman has helped Lille concede just eight goals. Superficially, one should expect that Lille has no interest in selling these top youngsters, as they could still qualify for a Champions League place via the league AND with one game left they already qualify for the CL group stage of this season to have. The Athletic man says that while Lille would like to keep Sven Botman at least until the end of the season, Lille accepts that if an "extraordinary" offer is made, they will be reluctant to sell. David Ornstein says sources have suggested that "an offer on the order of £ 40million" Newcastle United or another club could succeed in attracting the exciting young defender who will turn 22 in January. As for the new owners of Newcastle United in January, there have been recent reports claiming that there will be no specific budget for this next transfer window, but that each potential transfer will be viewed in isolation. Eddie Howe and the recruiting team need to convince the owners that this is the right commitment at this point. Sven Botman appears to be ticking a lot of boxes and would be a great marker in the sand if Newcastle could land him. Some surprise wins on that tough looking five-game December schedule before the window opens wouldn't hurt both the Newcastle owners to show ambition at this stage and the goals to convince that NUFC is a club they should be interested in connecting with the prospect of better times.
