The staggering 11 second clip that sums up Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United – Video

There were so many things wrong with Saturday’s display at St James’ Park, but one moment in particular stood out for all the wrong reasons.

In the 84th minute, we were 2-0 and had a throw in level with the opposition penalty box.

At this point we had a big target to hit in Andy Carroll and needed to score ASAP if we were to find an unlikely route back into the match.

What did we do? This…

If there’s anything that sums up the negative and no hope nature of Newcastle United under Steve Bruce, it’s this!

BT Sport commentator Steve McManaman is someone I rarely agree with, but his reaction to the baffling incident in the 84th minute was spot on:

“This bit drives me mad!,”

“They have got a throw-in by Chelsea’s penalty area. It’s ended up with the goalkeeper. How’s that happened?

“You’re 2-0 down. In the last seven minutes of the game, you’ve got a throw-in in a danger area and you’ve gone 90 yards backwards.”

Steve Bruce didn’t ask them to do this and may have been equally baffled, but this is what comes of a group of players who are constantly told to sit deep, hope for the best and rarely commit bodies forward.

  1. Never watched entire game, this was typical of 90 minutes under Bruce. Ive got better things to do in life, not here to watch Chelsea. Needs to get rid of this manager. Did anyone hear Alan Shearer on MOTD making a comment about his best buddy Steve and their style of, well I can’t call it football. New Year, new manager.
    I’d even have Big Sam back ?


  2. Bruce sets his team up to sit deep but after the game he says we were to deep the first half and that’s not the first time he has said that after games, if this is the case why doesn’t he change it from the touch line, he’s the gaffer for God’s sake but it’s that same old cliche he doesn’t have a plan B
