    Steve Bruce can’t resist another nibble

    https://www.themag.co.uk/2020/10/ste...-beat-burnley/

    Steve Bruce was very much biting back on Friday.

    The Newcastle United Head Coach launching a pre-meditated attack on journalists (and fans), at what he perceives as unfair criticism.

    After Newcastle completed their 3-1 victory over Burnley on Saturday night, Steve Bruce couldn’t resist another nibble…


    The NUFC boss declaring: ‘We have all had our fair share of criticism this week, maybe rightly so. Tonight we have hopefully quietened a few, for a while anyway.’

    Quite obviously, when Steve Bruce refers to ‘maybe rightly so’ about the criticism, he is making quite clear he doesn’t really believe that.

    The Head Coach adding: ‘It goes up and down so quickly, that is Newcastle.’

    Steve Bruce once again trying to make out that Newcastle fans are different to those elsewhere and not in a good way, more demanding, less understanding, some would say delusional…

    Newcastle played better last night against poor opposition. However, a bit like at West Ham, they gave the opposition a chance. Burnley taking advantage of Steve Bruce going more defensive after the break and scoring an equaliser, whereas the Hammers hit the bar twice and missed another couple of great chances.

    Against Burnley, Steve Bruce was so lucky to have Allan Saint-Maximin, the winger a constant threat to Burnley all night, scoring the opening goal out of nothing and then out of nothing creating the goal to make it 2-1, only four minutes after the equaliser had gone in.

    Without ASM would Newcastle have still won?

    Well the stats say that in 42 Premier League games under Steve Bruce, he (Bruce) has won only once when Saint-Maximin hasn’t started.

    Steve Bruce doesn’t like his tactics and game plan being questioned but last season the only plan to try and score a goal appeared to be to give the ball to ASM and hope he did something, other than NUFC trying to get far enough upfield to launch balls into the box from corners and free-kicks.

    Even with Callum Wilson added, Newcastle United will need more of a cunning plan than simply giving the ball to ASM and standing back to see if he can weave some magic.

    We all want to see Newcastle win matches but we also recognise when results have been down to huge helpings of luck, far too many times for comfort under Steve Bruce.

    Just goes to show that it's all about him. Despite the 'genial-Geordie just trying to do his best without getting any credit' bit he has a massive ego, meaning he can't help having a go.

    It's a strange-and dangerous-tactic to have a go at the fans so openly. He's clearly not very good at judging the mood because if he did, he'd realise that at least part of the reason for the criticism is that fans are monumentally pissed off over the failed takeover; patience and tolerance are at an all-time low and being told we're hysterical after an appalling performance drew justified criticism is going to achieve nothing more than putting our backs up further.

    He wants all of the credit when we win. He also wants no critisism when we loose. The Pidgeon Lady is a little Bitch.
