Sunday night time ended West Brom Zero Newcastle 0.
Forward of every fit we ask one in every of our writers to get a hold of Three positives and three negatives following the sport.
This time it’s David Punton.
POSITIVES (*Be aware – positives have been / are briefly provide)
Maintaining it blank
A minimum of we controlled a shutout.
The blank sheet must be one thing to construct on.
On this technology of a few lovely skinny gruel the avid gamers want to stay it tight on the again if we’re to have any likelihood of surviving.
The go back of a well-recognized face
Paul Dummett is one thing of an unsung hero on the membership and he’s an excessively underrated defender.
We want him and it’s nice to look him again within the aspect.
He’s were given luggage of revel in and spirit.
Heads above water
The purpose has moved us above Brighton.
It’s no longer a lot to dangle to however can NUFC cross on from right here and get the win over Villa?
Can be a large step.
The avid gamers need to throw all they’ve were given at that recreation.
But every other fit the place the soccer used to be lovely rotten.
It used to be an terrible recreation and underneath Bruce the workforce lacks any actual company id or tactical intelligence.
It’s garbage to observe and it kind of feels everybody however the supporters can’t (gained’t?) see how unhealthy it actually is.
The principle speaking level prior to kick off used to be the verdict to move with Joelinton, leaving Dwight Gayle at the bench. For sure the location warrants giving Gayle a check out, he’s much more likely to attain than our Brazilian purchase.
Jeff Hendrick’s title at the workforce sheet despatched a shudder too. What on earth has took place to the Longstaffs, or handing a possibility to Elliot Anderson? Matty Longstaff signed a brand new contract, after a lot wrangling, but he turns out miles clear of variety. Enthusiasts are proper to invite what the hell is happening there.
SB and Pink distress
The membership won’t love it however a significant damaging after these days is that Steve Bruce stays the executive of Newcastle United.
Two wins from 18 video games is unacceptable.
We have now thrown away a 10 level hole to the ground 3. The dollar stops with Steve Bruce. He’s in command of this slide against oblivion.
And all of it got here in per week the place he’s been focused on tetchy exchanges with the print media, blaming all his woes at the truth there’s a mole within the camp who reported claims of an astonishing bust up with Matt Ritchie at coaching.
In the meantime, we see Scott Parker’s Fulham successful away at Liverpool to near proper up, with a greater function distinction. That outcome has blown our little protection web to bits and we nonetheless have to move and play away video games at Fulham and Brighton. A in reality frightening state of affairs underneath this supervisor.
The massive concern is that the following few months cross down in historical past because the loss of life of Newcastle United as a most sensible flight membership – for an excessively very very long time.
