Latest updates

  1. Analysis: Brighton 0-0 Newcastlepublished at 17:59

    Matthew Howarth, BBC Sport

    Newcastle boss Eddie Howe described last weekend's victory over Nottingham Forest as the "blueprint" for his team as the Magpies look to build on their magnificent second half to last season.

    The 2-0 victory over the newly promoted side was as one-sided as it gets, but this game could hardly have been more different as the visitors struggled to create meaningful opportunities and needed two goal-line clearances to avoid a first defeat of the campaign.

    Considerable credit must also go to Nick Pope, who produced two impressive saves that will have done his England ambitions no harm whatsoever.

    The former Burnley stopper produced a magnificent one-handed stop to deny Adam Lallana from point-blank range, before thwarting Solly March with another low save.

    While Howe will be delighted with his players' character and resolve, he is unlikely to be too pleased with the Magpies' passing.

    The visitors had opportunities to hurt their opponents on the counter-attack but, too often, their final ball was lacking.

  2. Analysis: Brighton 0-0 Newcastlepublished at 17:40

    Matthew Howarth, BBC Sport

    Brighton's intricate, one-touch passing can be incredibly pleasing on the eye at times, but it doesn't always translate into goals.

    The Seagulls scored just 19 times in the league at the Amex Stadium last season, and their lack of clinical edge proved costly here as Newcastle held on for a share of the spoils.

    Graham Potter's side might count themselves a little unfortunate after having two goal-bound efforts cleared off the line - from Solly March in the first half and Joel Veltman in the second - but Adam Lallana and Pascal Gross should have broken the deadlock after the interval.

    Lallana's point-blank header was saved by Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope, before Gross turned second-half substitute Kaoru Mitoma's low cross agonisingly wide of the near post.

    Four points from their opening two games is a solid return, but it could - and perhaps should - have been more for Brighton.

  3. Sutton's predictions: Brighton v Newcastlepublished at 18:07 12 August

    Sutton's prediction: 1-1

    This is another game where I am thinking 'how can you predict this?'.

    Some Brighton fans were complaining they did not get a mention in the discussion about what happened to Manchester United on Sunday, but they did.

    The Seagulls are a really good team under Graham Potter, and a really good watch too.

    The same goes for Newcastle, though. I liked the way they started the season against Nottingham Forest.

    Forest were not great but Newcastle showed plenty of intent going forward.

    I like watching Eddie Howe's teams and I am expecting this to be quite an expansive game. I don't want to predict another draw, but I think it will end with the points being shared.

    Serge's prediction: 1-2

    I have a feeling Newcastle are going to have a big season. With the World Cup happening in the middle of it, it might just disrupt things for the usual contenders and open it up for someone to break into the top four. They might be the team to do it - they went on an amazing run in the second half of last season, and if they can get the same momentum at the start of this one they might get close. Apologies if I have just given them the kiss of death, though!

  5. Newcastle will provide 'tough test' for Brightonpublished at 12:16 12 August

    Brighton defender Adam Webster says Newcastle will provide a "tough test" when Albion face the Magpies this weekend.

    "Since Howe took over he's done a great job," Webster told BBC Radio Sussex. "They look a real force now, a real tough team to play against.

    "It's a real tough test for us. It's our first home game so we want to give the fans something to cheer about and we want to improve our home record and make it a tough place to come.

    "Obviously we went out with a nice win at the end of the season, we are full of confidence after Sunday and hopefully we can take that into Saturday's game and get the three points.

    "They have got a lot of threat going forward. Wilson is always going to score goals and he is a proven Premier League striker - it's always a tough afternoon to come up against him. And Allan Saint-Maximin is so tricky and so skilful so it will be tough.

    "But everyone defends together in our team - you saw on Sunday the job the midfielders did, Moises [Caicedo], Alexis [Mac Allister] and Pascal [Gross] tracking their runners and really working for the team and it will be no different on Saturday."

  6. 'Losing Jonjo is a big blow, but we have enough cover'published at 10:53 12 August

    While Jonjo Shelvey's injury is a "big blow" for Newcastle, Eddie Howe is confident he has enough players to cover.

    The midfielder will be out for 12 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury against Benfica in pre-season.

    He said: "It was quite a complex one, we had a number of scans and a number of opinions with Jonjo because we wanted to make the right call.

    "It wasn’t a clear or simple injury so he’s had an operation and we expect him to be out for around 12 weeks.

    "He’s very disappointed obviously, he’d worked very hard in pre-season and looked in really good physical shape so it’s a real shame for him and for us.

    "He’s on the road to recovery now and he’s in a much better place now after the operation than before mentally and we’re looking forward to getting him back.

    "I feel we have enough to cover his absence currently but you know football, that can change very quickly.

    "Losing Jonjo is a big blow, he’s been a huge player for us over the past few seasons and he brings unique qualities in that midfield role.

    "Bruno [Guimaraes] played in that position [against Nottingham Forest] and did very, very well and we do have other players. Sean Longstaff has played that position in pre-season and did very well. We have a couple of options but we’re going to miss Jonjo."

  7. Howe on injuries, consistency and potential new signingspublished at 10:16 12 August

    Eddie Howe has been speaking to the media before Newcastle's match against Brighton on Saturday.

    Here are the key lines from the Magpies boss:

    • Jonjo Shelvey has had surgery and will be out for about 12 weeks, which is a "big blow".

    • Jamaal Lascelles is back in training and Howe expects him to be fit.

    • Jamal Lewis and Federico Fernandez have also returned to training, while Emil Krafth's scans have come back clear.

    • On transfers, he said: "We're no closer currently but, hopefully, the next week or so might be different."

    • Consistency is key and after beating Nottingham Forest "we need to back it up, we want to back it up".

    • Howe said he has spoken to the players about the club's past and added: "It's vital the players understand the club they're playing for."

    • On Brighton, Howe said: "They're a very unique team. When you play them you have a huge challenge on your hands."

  8. 'I'm a bit gutted it was a bit too late for me' - Elliot on life after Newcastlepublished at 09:05 12 August

    Matthew Raisbeck, BBC Radio Newcastle

    Former Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot has joined their North East neighbours Gateshead as technical director.

    Elliot, who left Watford earlier this summer, has been reunited with his former Magpies team-mate Mike Williamson, who is Gateshead's player-manager.

    The 36-year-old will also have a role on Williamson's coaching staff and has been registered as a player.

    Elliot spent nine seasons at St James' Park before leaving in 2020 and is a popular figure on Tyneside.

    He told BBC Radio Newcastle the club has an exciting future thanks to last year's takeover.

    "Newcastle are going to go on a huge journey now, which is going to culminate in Premier League titles and Champions Leagues - or at least challenging for them," he said.

    "It's just great for me to see that the hope is back for the fans and for the lads.

    "Some of the lads have been there a long time and they just really deserve to play at a club that's ambitious and under a manager who is a just top manager.

    "For Newcastle fans, the optimism is just brilliant, and not having the same questions of 'what's (Mike) Ashley doing?'.

    "They're signing players like Bruno and Saint-Maximin - who came in before - and you've got players that are exciting the fans and who want to be there because they want to be successful. It's a whole mentality shift.

    "I'm a bit gutted it was a bit too late for me, but I'm just buzzing for the people who are at the club who had to go through tough times. Now, everyone can benefit, and just enjoy what will hopefully be a very successful period."

    Newcastle United defender Matt Targett says a top-10 finish would be "good progress" as the Magpies continue to improve under Eddie Howe.

    The left-back signed on a permanent transfer this summer for £15m after impressing on loan.

    "To finish 11th in the end I think that was a success for where we were but this season we will have a full season," he told NUFC TV., external

    "I think progressing on last year and if we get top 10 that would be good progress and beyond that I think the more quality you add in the transfer windows I think it is only going to improve the team.

    "Step by step that is always what I have said. Little-by-little progression."

    As you may well have seen, the Premier League is turning 30.

    So as it's a time for nostalgia we asked you to send in your best football memorabilia.

    Fraser sent us: "My Newcastle United signed shirt, note the signature of the great Sir Bobby Robson. This shirt is priceless to me and I could never sell it. Sir Bobby was a true great and one of the best managers in the world, and to get the shirt signed by him - along with Alan Shearer and co - means it is one of my most treasured possessions. I wish Sir Bobby was here today to see the rebuilding of his great club."

  12. 'I wasn't pleased with my performance' - Wilsonpublished at 11:54 11 August

    Newcastle United's Callum Wilson says he would have been "fuming" if he didn't score on the opening day of the Magpies' season.

    The 30-year-old scored the second goal with a clever finish at St James' Park in their 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

    "I made some good runs but on the whole I wasn't pleased with my performance. I scored, and as a striker you are judged on goals. It looks like you had a good game but it wasn't one of my best games," he said on BBC Sounds' The Footballer's Football Podcast.

    "I was getting frustrated [with the service] but I can understand it is the first game back, tired minds with players making the wrong decisions at the wrong times and things like that. As the first game we can let it slide and we got the three points, which is the main thing.

    "When I scored you could see the frustration come out a little bit because I wasn't really in the game, and I wasn't really playing too great to be honest, but I was just grateful to get on the scoresheet."

    The England international has also scored in the opening game of the past two seasons.

    He added: "Being honest I would be fuming only because I enjoy scoring on the opening day of the season and I wanted to do it again for the third year running for Newcastle. The opportunities where I was square and players didn't pass the ball to score a goal, then yes, I would have been more frustrated at the end of the game."

  13. Do Newcastle need to bolster midfield options?published at 17:12 10 August

    Matthew Raisbeck, Newcastle United commentator for BBC Radio Newcastle

    With Jonjo Shelvey likely to be unavailable for a few months because of a hamstring injury, do Newcastle need to sign another central midfielder to play alongside Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes?

    Former Magpies defender John Anderson gave his verdict on BBC Radio Newcastle's Total Sport programme.

    He told me: "I think they have enough players there to cover.

    "The Elliot Anderson situation is interesting because I think they were waiting to see what the extent of Shelvey's injury was. Now that it looks like it's not going to be a short-term injury, I think that stops Anderson going on loan, and he'll stay.

    "I thought Joe Willock did well at the weekend - his energy levels were good and he got into good areas against Nottingham Forest. Sean Longstaff is there, and now young Anderson comes into the equation, too.

    "But, you also wonder where this puts Matty Longstaff. I imagine they were thinking of loaning him out again, but they may decide to keep him around."

    Newcastle United will wear a special one-off kit against Brighton on Saturday.

    The Premier League ruled that all three of the Magpies' three new 2022-23 kits will all clash with Brighton's home kit.

    Therefore, special dispensation has been given to wear a new sky-blue jersey. It features the silhouette of St James' Park and several city landmarks - including the Tyne Bridge.

    Newcastle will wear the shirt with their traditional black shorts and socks.
