So many pluses from the game today. Tierney back, Partey back and AUBA scoring twice. Saka & Smith Rowe are also improving with each game
Admittedly, Newcastle were poor but you can only beat what’s in front of you.
Well played boys.

Agree, I think Partey is settling in too. Excluding one MOTM performance we'd only seen glimpses of what he brings but he stayed more involved today and showed his class. Even more to come I suspect.

Because he doesn't give the owner grief about not spending more. Because he understands that his job is to keep Newcastle up cheaply. Because he doesn't publicly bad-mouth the owner.

None of these are good things; he fails on everything important; but you asked how he keeps his job------.

He's never been a good PL manager & is way out of his depth - but hey, as long as he gets paid!

In Arsenal's defence, they can only beat what's in front of them but we made it very, very easy. Steve Bruce might be one gamble too far for Ashley, this is a classic stick or twist situation. Act now before it's too late Ashley! We are getting relegated at this rate.

Big Sam hasn't failed anywhere, his remit is save clubs and build them up.

This is probably Bruce's last turn on the roundabout. Once he's gone from this job I doubt there'll be anything else for.

But to be fair he gave Toon fans what they wanted. He played 4 forwards and had a go. But still got thumped. Why? Because Newcastle's squad is bang average at best. Who exactly is going to produce the free flowing football they desire?

Newcastle fans. Meet reality.

Agree.
Hopefully Newcastle can fight out of this.
Bruce I'm sure is a nice guy however he is not able or capable at this level
Needs go down 2 divisions and build a team up.
Unfortunately there is a group of managers who I dare say make a good from failing.
Paid off millions, buy a mansion, stay at home till the next club comes along.
Houses all over the coast, not the UK coast... at fans expense.

Totally right. Only player to look cleaner after a wet night game than before kick off. Always concerns me when a player tucks his top in twenty two times in one game. If he does not go the competition may give him the kick up backside he needs

Bruce - if that's your way take the highway. No better than the last 8 games. No idea how to change things around. All Steves to go now!
