:lol: I hope Disco[/member] will appreciate the beautiful juxtaposition of these two tweets

I'm not sure I can see the beautiful juxtaposition. Am I missing some esoteric reference or something?

 

I only ask because I happen to know Alan Coleman.

 

The TF guy bought his first ST after Bruce was appointed.

Pretty sure it was. Weird as he’s usually pretty insightful.

Yeah, I think he's the guy who used to make post-game videos (not on True Faith) and I always found him to be insightful and articulate.

I’ve said before I don’t want to defend Bruce, especially today, but do we really have a top 16/17 squad given our injury crisis?

 

Fulham, Palace and Brighton have more depth. Burnley are probably worse on paper though. Fulham just brought Loftus-Cheek off the bench and Mitrovic can’t get a game. Our best 11 on paper included Shelvey or a Longstaff until one of Arsenal’s fringe players joined.

 

I am kind of playing Devil’s advocate as we all know it goes much deeper than positions and points, but I can kind of see why dim pundits defend him.

Come on Fulham

 

 

Why you’d support Fulham is beyond me. Bruce is going no where and even if he does not only is it too late there won’t be a Rafa to take over

Not long after he was appointed here I posted something along the lines that even if he won the PL or the Champions League I would still never accept him. I have hated him all through his wonderful management career and always dreaded that he would come here one day

And our players all looked better pre-Bruce

Aye, get your point, missing front 3 and Schar is leaving anyone a mountain to climb, but I can’t excuse the total drop off in intensity and change of approach.

 

He bottled it missing those players. We saw same approach he kept persisting with earlier this year when he was without ASM. Backwards passing from midfield, no runners forward, no intensity in anything, rushing the ball forward, and clearly just trying to play directly to Joelinton against a full back.

 

He went back to same approach he was responsible too before Jones came in. Proves the ‘doing it my way’ stuff was bollocks, as today must have been him just going back to how players wanted then. Carbon copy approach, plan and performance to any of those games up until Everton away.

 

Could have easily shoved Fraser into Almiron role, and Murphy/Ritchie (lol) wide left. He shithoused it and stuck Hendrick back in.

 

Squad may be less talented and full of dossers, but he’s incapable of getting anywhere near best from them. Whether that’s tactically, or just numerous factors going into them wanting to play for him and run through brick walls to get a win.

Zero excuses for Bruce and co. Had we made the "Jones" adjustments at the start of the season we could have easily picked up another 3-9 points. Injuries happen and it's part and parcel on the game. We planned poorly, didn't sack Bruce or replace him, didn't bring in enough players that could improve us while relegation rivals did. Let's not forget letting Lejeune out on loan.

 

We couldn't have shot ourselves in the foot more accurately. So much so it doesn't feel like an accident but knowing the stupidity of how our club is run, no one should be surprised.

I don't support Fulham, however in the context of the league table i would love for Fulham to overtake & eventually relegate us, Newcastle stink the place out, we do not deserve to be eating at the top table of football, the Gelatinous giant of over "what is it, 500 games or so" deserves every bit of ridicule & abuse he gets in every single form, the Leviathan of 90s Cliches has zero respect for you, me or any other Newcastle fan, why the fuck wouldn't I want the t!t to feel the pain he causes every time he eats his fat mouth, the Platypus nosed Khunt plays us, the media & his paymasters for his own gain, hes an awful man, awful "manager" & shouldn't be within a furlong of the premier league, in fact I hope Mitrovic relegates us, the cushion faced Khunt that is bruce, the ignorant ft pig that is Mike Ashley with the very last kick of the entire season, my life wont change, theirs might though so fcuk them

This formation that we've been playing since Jones has come in is shite, mind. Aye, it won us the game at Everton and Southampton but its now been found out. Its basically playing without a striker and it exposes poor full backs really badly. Maybe we can play it with all players back fit. But they aren't. He has to change it but he won't, the useless cunt.

We had the covid crisis also. I know every team has been affected by it but we had ASM out for two months and hardly had great alternatives.

:thup: It's all over the place. Worked well with Wilson and Manquillo operating on the right but it's nothing without them.

Bruce is responsible for the injuries with his lax training regimes.

 

He's also responsible for our squad not being good enough since he was brought here specifically to rubber stamp Ashley's signings.

Re: state of the squad, its Worrying to think that if we stay up he’s going to be here residing over another transfer window.

 

Schar, Fed, Gayle, Atsu, Murphy, Carroll all potentially need replacing.

 

For the squad to be where it should be, we need to be keeping hold of Schar and Fed and spending £150M+ on replacements for the wasters leaving and on key big deal first teamers.

 

No takeover this summer/spring and it’s only going to get a whole deal worse, PL or Championship.

Yep, I still agree with all that. Tactics were horrendous throughout and we heavily relied on luck earlier on also.

 

Not really getting the persistence with this formation. It seems set up to support Miggy but surely today of all times he needed to mix it round. We can keep the higher intensity and pressing under Jones under a different formation I’d have thought. No proper wingers or strikers seems a bit odd unless you’re Barca under Guardiola etc.
