Simon Jordan shares if Howe will lift the trophy at Newcastle

Simon Jordan doesn’t think Eddie Howe will win a trophy at Newcastle United because the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal will make life “very difficult” for them. as he told talkSPORT.

The former Crystal Palace owner added that Howe will be a “victim of his own success” as he believes teams like Tottenham who “rekindle” themselves will not be helpful.

It’s been decades and decades since they’ve watched their team lift a trophy in the colors of Newcastle.

Hopes of ending that would have increased tenfold when their new Saudi owners replaced Mike Ashley in the boardroom at St James’ Park.

Of course there will be no trophy in Newcastle’s cabinet this season but, as Jordan mentioned, ‘expectations are going to rise’ and he can’t see Howe being the type of guy to bring home a trophy.

“I think Eddie Howe will be around long enough to lay claim to Newcastle winning anything,” said Jordan.

“Well it took Manchester City when the money ended up with Manchester City. It took them three or four years to win the Premier League.

“I think the powerhouses Liverpool, Man City regardless of what happens to Chelsea when ownership change comes into play. Rebuilding Arsenal and rekindling Tottenham. They will make Newcastle’s job very difficult.

“I think Eddie Howe is going to be a stepping stone that builds them up, gives them stability and gives them a certain feel good factor.

“But expectations will increase. For now, Eddie Howe is the savior – winning is a different sauce than staying in the division. I think Eddie Howe is becoming a victim of his own success.”

It wasn’t all that long ago that Newcastle couldn’t win a football match for money or love.

It was doomsday with Steve Bruce in the dugout and Mike Ashley pulling the strings from above.

But now, with world football’s wealthiest owners at the helm and ambitions skyrocketing, life is very different for the Toon Army supporters.

It will be interesting to see what the ambitions are for next season. Is it about taking baby steps and trying to get in the top ten?

Or does it shoot straight to Champions League football? Or dare you say, the greatest of them all, the Premier League title?
