Newcastle United 1 Manchester United 4

This game was like every single other game under Bruce. No shape, no strategy, no going after the opposition’s main weakness. Just 11 blobs thrown out on the pitch, no doubt with the rhetoric of “let’s get up and at em boys!”.

Thank you so much Steve Bruce, for systematically taking apart everything that Rafa Benitez built.

We have the best squad of players we have had for years, and we are also playing the worst football we have ever played in the Premier League at the same time.

Imagine being so useless, that you send a team out to sit back, not press and basically hand the game to one of the worst Manchester United sides in Premier League history. Imagine actually not viewing this as a great opportunity to get at a defence that is on its backside.

Luke Shaw who literally can’t defend, Maguire who is at rock bottom, and carrying an injury, and our manager plays Joelinton when we had Ryan Fraser sat on the bench. Ryan Fraser who played and scored for Scotland, and would have been perfect to run at and test a really poor and shaky back four.

It’s staggering, absolutely staggering just how poor Bruce is.

He isn’t even a dinosaur with out dated methods, he simply has no methods. He has all the attributes of an under 14’s Sunday League manager, no doubt gives “Big Jo” all the big ups he needs, when what that lad needs is removing from the match day squad, to play the infinitely better options we have sat on the bench.

We play like a team of strangers and the only thing Bruce has on his side; apart from goalkeepers who make save after save every game, is the most insane amount of luck any manager could ever have in picking up enough points to keep him in the job, when the reality of our performances is that we rarely deserve even a point.

To top it off, it looks like we are creeping our way back to the top of the Physio Room leaderboard, another excellent accolade for our illustrious leader on the touch line. Racking up muscle injuries like they are going out of fashion, great job Steve, great job.

What a shambles.
