Journalist says NUFC player is now “desperately disappointed” in Steve Bruce – Here’s why..

Lee Ryder has revealed that Dwight Gayle left Selhurst Park “desperately disappointed” by Steve Bruce’s decision not to start him on Saturday.

The striker was tipped to make a return to the starting XI for just the third time this season in midweek, with the Daily Star’s Ian Murtagh claiming he was in contention, but Bruce opted to stick with Joelinton.

Gayle came on at the 70-minute mark, yet barely got a kick, having just FIVE touches of the ball despite his best efforts to get involved in a central striking role.

Steve Bruce said after the game (once again) that he’s a “very good footballer” and player he “thinks a lot of“, however it’s yet another game where he hasn’t given him a chance from the off.

That said, with the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder claiming he was ‘desperately disappointed’ by Bruce’s decision and it being another game where we struggled to show any sort of threat in the attacking third, Gayle seems VERY likely to get his chance against Burnley on Saturday.

Time for a formation change and a few fresh faces?

  1. Bruce is under orders to play
    Joe Linton at all costs so that fatty can justify his rediculous spending.
    Sticks out like a sore thumb.
    H W T L.


  2. He has a good right being disappointed after all Bruce keeps saying he is razor sharpe in training and he thinks the world of him he is a natural goal scorer yet doesn’t play him

    The cabbage is a vegetable


  3. Steve “Danny Le Rue” Bruce should have never been appointed Newcastle “Led-Coach” because one his lucky streak has run out we are seeing him for the ineffective dinosaur that he is and has been at other clubs.
    Only utterly clueless knackers like Charnley “The Tea Boy” would ever think it was a good idea to employ him in the first instance.
    It wasn’t long ago he was talking about building something at Newcastle, Well if that is a great steaming t*rd then it is mission accomplished.

    He wants to take himself and his Blue Rinse hairdo out of Newcastle because he is never going to do anything here !


  4. On the bright side, a good performance from Wolves, playing in 2nd gear, beating that formidable team..Norwich! Amazing what you can do with ambition and a good manager. ASM will fit in perfectly at Wolves next season and Mike makes a bit of money.??


  5. More reason to believe Joelinton contract states he has to start every game, no other reason to stick to someone so inept, if a keeper let in a few howlers every game on the trot he’d soon be dropped, our #9 has to sit a few out an give Gayle a few starts cos he can’t do any worse
