Newcastle boss Howe targets Cup glory: I have to dream big

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe says they'll be targeting the Cups this season.

It was 1955 when Newcastle last lifted a domestic trophy and 1999 was the last time they reached a major cup final, when they lost the FA Cup to Manchester United at the old Wembley.

Howe said: "I think if I sat here and said I didn't want to win a trophy there would be something wrong with me. That's my dream, to win silverware and win cups and achieve great things for this football club.

"I have to dream big on behalf of the club. Again, that's not saying we are going to do it, it's my dream and then we have to work hard to try to achieve that. And every day I'm pushing to try to make that dream a reality."

Newcastle started the season with a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

Howe said: "I am proud of the team's run at the end of last season. In my mind, that's gone now and we can't just go back to that time.

"We can try to take the good things from it but we have to earn the right again. That's crucial for every team in the Premier League.

"You start fresh and start level with everyone else and we have to earn everything that comes from now. We have to get the supporters onside with our energy, enthusiasm and our work-rate. You have to earn the trust again and I back the players to do it."
