Report: What Eddie Howe told Bruno Guimaraes to do during Newcastle’s 2-2 draw with West Ham

Bruno Guimaraes of Newcastle United could have had a very different afternoon against West Ham if Eddie Howe had not intervened.

The Magpies drew 2-2 at the London Stadium, but they might not have gotten a point had the referee not done Newcastle a favor in the first half.

In the 17th minute, Bruno Guimaraes was shown a yellow card for a foul on Emerson Palmieri. The 25-year-old was on a cynical trip after signing a new contract with Newcastle just 24 hours before.

Bruno could and probably should have received a second booking just minutes after his first.

He got the better of James Ward-Prowse and lunged to regain possession and stop the counterattack. He  most emphatically did the latter, but not the former.

During West Ham vs. Newcastle 2, Eddie Howe spoke with Bruno Guimaraes.

According to the Chronicle, Howe had a conversation with Bruno after his second foul. After committing two terrible tackles so early in the game, he allegedly advised his number 39 to cool down.

Howe’s statements certainly made an impression. I don’t believe Bruno committed another foul the rest of the game.

He was highly disciplined after a couple of fits of craziness. Bruno went on to have a huge impact on the game, playing a key role in Alexander Isak’s second goal.

Bruno’s pass, which transferred the play to Kieran Trippier on the right, was the first to open West Ham up. The defender then finished the job with a first-time cross that allowed Isak to score.


Bruno will realize how fortunate he was against David Moyes’ team, and the West Ham fans will be unhappy that they did not play against 10 men for the majority of Sunday’s game.


Newcastle, on the other hand, got a lucky break from the authorities and made the most of it. Bruno returns after a wild first 20 minutes.
