New Newcastle owners delayed Steve Bruce’s ax, screwed up the Unai Emery deal and haven’t won a game yet … they could do a lot worse than following Brighton’s plan

Eddie Howe will have learned a lot about their new positions as they struggled to claim a point from a game they missed for the first hour.

But for him and Amanda Staveley, next to him Saturday in the Amex Stadium director’s box, the most fruitful lessons could come from their opponents.

The accusation leveled at Newcastle’s new owners has been that they don’t seem to know yet how they are going to run this club.

Let them act like this £ 305 million collection of Tyneside’s hopes and dreams is a gift at a surprise birthday party.

The delayed expulsion of Steve Bruce was followed by the failed prosecution of Unai Emery.

It’s an unedifying look for the new regime, which doesn’t appeal to a man who later claimed wasn’t all of that in the interview anyway.

And looking for blueprints for success and stability, Newcastle could do much worse than studying Brighton.

The Seagulls’ backroom staff, led by CEO Paul Barber and Coach Dan Ashworth, have put a clear structure in place, backing their manager Graham Potter with promising young players and, most importantly, on time.

The Newcastle owners seem like their best big decision would be to hire someone in the Ashworth mold as sports director, to take the other big decisions out of their hands.

The money should not cloud the immediate reality of the club, which is a serious relegation battle and the need to convince the best players that this is a serious project that they should want to join.

Naturally, having an unlimited transfer budget to play with will likely cover any structural problems, but such riches have not always equaled success.

With nine league games to go until the transfer chest can be opened in January, and Newcastle still awaiting their first win or clean sheet this season, the most urgent lessons to be learned from Brighton lie on the field.

Potter’s team opened Newcastle over and over again by playing exactly the kind of attacking football that made Howe revered at Bournemouth.

The game really should be over by the break, but only Leandro Trossard’s penalty separated the sides as Brighton was again disappointed by his shot.

Isaac Hayden managed to equalize Newcastle in the 66th minute and could even have won it at the end, with Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sánchez sent off for tripping over Callum Wilson and central defender Lewis Dunk forced into injury time.
