Exclusive Eddie Howe interview in Saturday's programme

Saturday’s issue of UNITED – the Magpies’ official matchday programme – features an exclusive, eight-page interview with new head coach Eddie Howe.

As he prepares to take charge of Newcastle for the first time, Howe chats in-depth with the programme about the challenge ahead and why he feels the club are the “perfect fit” for him.

Ex-defender Irving Nattrass is the latest former Magpie to take part in Q&A Revisited, in which we bring back to light some of the quick-fire interviews undertaken by United players over the years and then see how many of their answers remain the same in the present day.

‘Keeper Freddie Woodman dives into The Toon Tombola, sharing his thoughts on the British Royal Family, Star Wars and sea lions, while Toonament History – the brand new feature in which we take a look back at the Magpies’ connections to football’s two biggest major tournaments – continues with a look at the World Cup of 1986, an infamous one for the England stars with United links.

This week’s Guest Column, meanwhile, comes courtesy of Jonny Stewart – a member of the sea shanty supergroup known as The Wellermen. There’s also a tribute to the late Malcolm Dix – the Magpies’ life vice president – with Sir John Hall chatting to UNITED to remember his close friend.

Club Historian Paul Joannou tells us about Bob Moncur’s recent visit to Cumbria to see ex-defensive colleague John McNamee and, in his regular 140 Years of Action piece, looks back at how the club dealt with the outbreak of World War One in 1914.

Further nostalgia comes courtesy of Stan Gate in Programme Matters, with Ryan Barrett providing this week’s Academy Diary. Elsewhere, we find out a little bit more about Newcastle United Women’s Lauren Robson.

And, as always, we’ll have all you need to know about our visitors, Brentford, as well as skipper Jamaal Lascelles’ thoughts ahead of the game and Howe’s first set of notes since becoming boss.

If you’re not able to make it on Saturday, you can still order your programme online – available on Curtis Sport’s website here.
