The alarming 24 second clip that sums up the state of Steve Bruce’s broken NUFC side…

The reaction of the players just moments after the full time whistle at Aston Villa was one of the most depressing, hopeless things that I’ve seen from Newcastle probably since we were relegated by the same team in 2009.

The clip was even more damning than the actual football on display.

See the clip for yourselves here:

If you were to show this clip to someone in isolation then they would surely assume that this was the reaction of a confirmed relegation rather than a mid season January fixture.

This is a strong indictment of Newcastle United under Steve Bruce and truly shows how lost these players are under his management.

If Mike Ashley has any real will to keep Newcastle in the Premier League then he will sack Bruce as soon as he can. Sadly, the horrible reality is that Ashley doesn’t care enough to watch these things, but if I was him then this would be the absolute final straw.

These players need belief in their abilities, they need instructions and they need someone who will actually take professional charge of this club.

Steve Bruce has been demanding reactions throughout his tenure as Newcastle manager, well I think he’s received the most damning one.

  1. So why on earth are we getting a new coach then.? Is this so Bruce can blame someone else for the lacklustre under par performances. Ashley wasting more money on absolute rubbish instead of getting rid of the problem Bruce. Tomoz night we gonna get absolutely hammered by Leeds, wonder what pathetic excuse Bruce will come up wit this time.


  2. tonight another defeat and more excuses the pressure is surely going up a few more notches after every loss, the moron cant even face the press cause they say nasty things about him, just wait till the fans return he wont have nowhere to hide then when hes in the dugout mind you i hope hes gone long before the fans are allowed back


  3. Is this supposed to be journalism?
    “Look how sad these players are after losing 2-0 …this means bruce must go”
    Why write a blog post if you have absolutely nothing new to say?
    If they were all laughin and joking would that mean bruce should stay? Its the losing 2-0 that puts him in jeopardy, not the sad looking players. At least it looks like they’re grasping the seriousness of the situation.


  4. If they play, act and look like a team already relegated, then no one can be surprised when it happens, least of all those in charge.

    I get that they shouldn’t be all smiles and laughing and joking after a defeat but this has an air of resigned to their fates type of feel and that’s with half the season to go. Imagine if we loose the next three (Leeds, Everton and Palace)!

    Currently averaging 1 point a game which you could argue puts us on track for a 38 point season which this season should be good enough but when you look at it in more detail we picked up 14 points from first 10 and just 5 from the last 9 games, at this rate of PROGRESS under SB what are we projecting for the next 9/10 games? look at the fixture my prediction is 3 point from the next 9 games putting us at 22 points with 9 games to go

    I want to be wrong . . . .
