Newcastle United had slumped at the start of the season. They even occupied the position of caretaker long enough. However, slowly The Magpies started to rise. Now they are 10 points ahead of the red zone.
The arrival of the Prince of Saudi Arabia is certainly the main reason for the rise of Newcastle. Abundant fresh funds seem to be a guarantee of achievement in the era of modern football. The appointment of Eddie Howe and the purchase of several key players also helped lift Newcastle United’s performance.
1. Was a caretaker at the beginning of the season
Newcastle United showed poor performance at the start of the season. Steve Bruce’s squad difficult to achieve victory and must be willing to be caretaker. Bruce was finally fired after the 11th week.
Newcastle were not even able to win their first 14 games. This makes them even more immersed in the red zone. Victory over Burnley with a score of 2-1 became their turning point.
2. The purchase by the Prince of Saudi Arabia is a breath of fresh air for Newcastle
Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohamad Bin Salman, has officially bought Newcastle United. This is certainly a breath of fresh air for supporters The Magpies because they will receive a seemingly endless stream of funds.
Currently, many teams are becoming top teams by relying on big funds, such as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain which are new monsters in their respective leagues. The same thing could of course happen to Newcastle.

The appointment of Eddie Howe as the new tactician to replace Steve Bruce seems to be starting to show a positive impact. The former Bournemouth coach was able to formulate a precise strategy by utilizing the existing players.
Evidently since Howe’s arrival, from 17 matches, they only lost 4 and were able to reap 7 wins. In fact, Newcastle are unbeaten since week 19. This makes Newcastle entrenched in the 14th place and further away from the red zone.
4. The purchase of players in the middle of the season is quite effective
Seeing the performance that did not improve, Newcastle began hunting for players in the January 2022 transfer market. One of their best purchases of course was Kieran Trippier, who was brought in from Atletico Madrid.
The English defender has been able to make a difference since his arrival. Trippier is also able to emerge as a leader when needed. His free kick ability is also quite lethal. Besides that, The Magpies also brought in Chris Wood from Burnley, Bruno Guimares from Lyon, and Matt Targett from Aston Villa which certainly strengthens this team.
5. Chance to survive the relegation zone
With funds that seemed to never run out from the Prince of Saudi Arabia, the appointment of Eddie Howe as coach, and the purchase of players who were quite effective, Newcastle began to rise and move further away from the relegation zone.
If they are able to maintain this good performance until the end of the season, we can be sure they will stay in the Premier League. Their competitors in the red zone at this time also look difficult to appear consistent.
Newcastle began to rise and further from the relegation zone. The Magpies also has the potential to become a new power after being bought by the Prince of Saudi Arabia.
