Watch smirking Steve Bruce react to 3-0 defeat at Arsenal in typically pathetic post-match interview

A seemingly unfazed Steve Bruce blamed our capitulation at Arsenal on second half mistakes , leaving us without a win in NINE games.

After an uneventful first half, we folded just before the hour mark and the Gunners never looked back as they put us to the sword with ease.

A deluded Bruce praised our first half showing in his post match interview and pinned our troubles on a lack of confidence within the squad.

He also defended his surprise 4-4-2 formation, insisting that it has previously worked for us so far this season and that our problems were due to a lack of creativity rather than the system.

In another of his excuses, he then rued the loss of Allan Saint-Maximin, but insisted we’d “dust ourselves” down and get on with it. Classic.

Here’s what he had to say in his latest painful post-match interview – made even worse by the fact he seemed unmoved by another awful display that has us firmly in a fight for survival:

The bit where he attempts to defend the Sheffield United result gets me, with him suggesting that our ’10 men’ only lost to a dubious VAR call. I mean come on, Steve!

Back to the Arsenal game, our performance was a throwback to the days of Carver and McClaren.

If Newcastle go 1-0 down, you best be assured that it is going to end three or four. One thing we had under Rafa was a togetherness until the bitter end but that has drastically reverted back to an unwanted bygone era in recent times.

We failed to create even one big chance in 90 minutes against a side that is hardly setting the world alight this season.

The worst Arsenal side still managed to brush us aside with ease and tonight’s result should serve as a worrying reminder that we are in the midst of a relegation fight with more than half the season still to play.

  1. No tactics. No clue. He is just hoping to get ASM back into the side and pray that he can create something. No real strategy. Much like another clueless tactician of the past Pardew who prayed that HBA could create something since his tactics were also null and void.

  2. Cabbage for a manager
    And a loada sympathizer vegetables as pundits.

    The Premier league knocked back the deal that would have made us the richest club in world football.

  4. Father Jack just wants to be paid off = made a fortune on failure!

    Took the gloves off but left the Beer Goggles on!

    He’s actually said that he’s not been doing it his way UNTIL last night (!?) IF the guy has a shred of decency he’d give the salary for the past 18 months to a Food bank

  5. Started last night with 9 men, Shelvey & Joelinton both useless, no idea why he plays them. Murphy & Richie at least make an effort and should start before the afore named donkeys.
