Since the Premier League’s formation in 1992, not a single English manager has ever won it. Eddie Howe is odds on to be the first of the current crop of top-level English managers.
Since taking the reins at Newcastle from fellow Englishman Steve Bruce, the Geordies have gone from strength to strength. Looking as though they were destined for the drop back in December, to comfortably finishing 12th, 13 points above 18th place Burnley.
Since the infamous Mike Ashley’s sale of Newcastle to the PIF consortium back in January, they are now considered the richest team in World football, and if they are to follow in the tracks of Manchester City who were subject to a similar takeover back in 2008, silverware and domestic trophies will surely be on their way if they invest as expected.
Howe’s Geordie revolution looks set to continue next season, and although many will consider it a little too early to be challenging for domestic titles, their form since his appointment has been nothing short of spectacular, only rivalled by Manchester City and Liverpool since the turn of the year.
There is little doubt that Newcastle will form into one of football's powerhouses with the financial backing they now have at hand, however, given the ruthless nature of modern football, we may see another manager at the helm when the Magpies eventually lift their first Premier League title.
