Andy Gray slates Steve Bruce in front of Richard Keys – “I don’t get it” – Video

Andy Gray has slammed Steve Bruce’s approach to last night’s game – despite us salvaging a decent 1-1 draw away to Wolves.

It’s a results business and, ultimately, Bruce managed to steer us towards another crucial away point but the performance has still been met with plenty of ridicule on social media.

Newcastle sat back and soaked up the pressure at Molineux, only trying to ask questions of the opposition after going a goal behind with 10 minutes to go.

Now Gray, in the prescience of his devious sidekick Richard Keys, has had this to say on Bein Sports following last night’s drab showing:

“That is what it was for Newcastle and it doesn’t please me to say that about that club, or Steve (Bruce), because I like Steve, but I just think that they offered nothing really going forward at all, until the 81st minute when they went one down.”

“It is a smash and grab. They contributed nothing to the game really, in an attacking sense, until they went one down.

“I said to you (Richard Keys), watch the next nine minutes after they went one down and look at how many men they get forward.

“In the first 80 minutes they did nothing like that.

I don’t get it.

I get that you can defend and be deep but I don’t get that your adventure can be zero.

“I’d expect more from Newcastle tonight and we didn’t get it.”

While results continue to treacle in, I am going to stay away from completely condemning Bruce’s current Newcastle side. However, even a neutral who’s half-watching our games could tell you that our performances and general approach to the game needs to drastically improve.

We rode our luck throughout the course of last season and it appears that we are going to be following a similar trajectory this time around too.

Games like Brighton are perfect examples of where our luck falls horribly short and we end up on the wrong side of a hammering – something we would’ve also suffered at Spurs had Karl Darlow not played a blinder.

It seems as though we are teetering on the edge of a bad run of form if performances like this continue.

  1. Keysie squirming….

    By the way does anyone know of anywhere that sells Cat Treats in Tynemouth (not the Co Op though)


  2. Unfortunately, despite having no respect for either grey or keys, I agree with their analysis, boring allowing opposition to control the game until we need to change. Thank god I didn’t have to suffer watching that live. Its becoming even more predictable and frustrating.


  3. lucky again dont know how anyone can watch the tripe been served up by this team under the cabbage sooner he is gone the better playing people out of position never works ,if we had lost the excuse ( well i changed the team) would have been spouted by him the guy is a joke and then his mates on motd saying he got the tactics spot on i wonder if Cahill would have liked to have played for him and still come out with that drivel BRUCEOUT


  4. Who gives a **** about a biased arsewipe Andy Gray and his tosspot side kick who will never say anything positive about the Toon.How do these people get these jobs


  5. Newcastle are awful to watch .you cant win games playing this way. I think we have some great pace in the side that is wasted. To me they need to get the backline 25 yards further up the pitch. And defend, in the oppositions half.take chances .iide rather get beat 3.. .2 than have a miserable draw.entertain the fans .have a real go. When we loss the ball get forward and close down instead of dropping off I
    . . Otherwise you may as well play 10 centre backs.
