Progress At Carrow Road Vital For Newcastle United


Since Steve Bruce joined Newcastle on July 17th, he has asked the fans to judge him on just one thing. That is results. His first test against Arsenal ended in a disappointing but competitive defeat.

The three points were there for the taking but a costly mistake and a chaotic final thirty minutes cost Newcastle what could have been a buoyant start to the season.

As it stands, Newcastle failed to take anything from the game but many will have seen a team that is still trying to figure out what they are. Steve Bruce has only been here a month and we saw a team against Arsenal that spent there first two weeks of pre-season without a manager. That is coupled with them also having a late start to pre-season.

It is going to take time for Steve to mold this squad into the final product. Our new signings are very young and have been brought into a pressure cooker with the situation at the club. Steve is probably the perfect coach for helping these new players settle.

Joelinton and Bruce– both need time to get it right

However, this is Premier League football and the stakes are very high. A failure to get anything out of Norwich City on Saturday will see the storm surrounding the club strengthen.

Newcastle are not United at the moment. The situation with the owner has seen the fanbase fracture and the flaming passions of some become lukewarm.

This can all change, at least for some, with results. A resounding victory on Saturday would be a nice start to salve the wounds of this club. It will by no means be a cure but it would at least be a momentary respite.

Let’s hope the lads can push on and play well on Saturday. We at least are excited to see what they can do after another week together. This group is still in its infancy and each week we hope to see some progress on the pitch.

    Charnley: “Our gym is perfectly adequate and functional. Do we have a swimming pool or water facilities? No. Would we like to have it at some stage? Absolutely.”

    Sobering. Depressing. Adequate and Functional United. #NUFC

    We need to come away from Carrow Road with something, and preferably at least one goal scored, I don’t want a repeat of last year, was it 3 points in the first 10 games?

    Strangely I was just reading Charnley’s comments as well.
    What crossed my mind was , if the various club takeovers
    were genuine , then stuff like the training facilities upgrade
    would get put on the backburner.

    This is typical of the stupid questions I get asked by the rabidly obsessive Jail…

    Jail – Bills Son Is Back. Did you sing the Blaydon races on Sunday?

    Is it supposed to be funny?

    Is there a hidden meaning?

    Is there no meaning at all?

    Sad, sad, man is Jail.

    RonKnee – agreed, given that updating the gym, adding a swimming pool and some plunge pools would only cost around a million – sad state of affairs indeed

    Internet threats. OOOhhh. Leonidas! I reckon it will be quite a few years before you are “done’ with Ashley. You and the 300 hundred and the Funboy 2 enjoy yourselves.

    I think that using this blog as a recruitment office for the pathetic Magpie Group does a disservice to Ed and Neil. We should be allowed to make up our own minds without propaganda from the likes of you.

    Having trawled through the comments on the last 2 threads, thank god some people want to talk about NUFC business, post after post, insults and abuse from fans of the same team. You all know who you are and seriously just go on a chat room site, no one wants to be involved in your “you said that, yeah but you said that nonsense”

    Genjikai,

    For a first game with new signings the atmosphere wasn’t great on Sunday.

    But, it has to be said…

    The supposed great atmosphere of SJP is a thing of the past, apart from an odd occasion.

    I actually had a fan in front of me in the Platinum Club tell my mate to stop shouting so loudly during one game last season.

    His very apt reply was, “it’s a football ground pal not a bloody church man”.

    Having said that, and I’ll take a hammering for supposedly being anti-Rafa, it is not easy to get the crowd excited when you have 30% possession against the likes of Brighton, Cardiff and Huddersfield.

    Attacking football and flair players will sharp improve the atmosphere.

    I’ve told you before…

    You aren’t Magnus Magnusson and I’m not sitting in the Mastermind chair.

    Go and ask your inane questions to someone else.

    I won’t be answering them.

    You and Munster are two peas in a pod.

    Both come on to tell people what to do and then tell others to stop to stop telling people what to do.

    You’re both complete jokes.

    Half truths again, I see you missed Munsters insult out.

    Save your energy for cheering on the team, as you say they need it.

    Jib your friend munster is so concerned about the atmosphere at sjp or lack of atmosphere that you were part of. Explain to your friend why you didnt support your team? Cheer them on encourage them?
    He wants to know what you are going to do to raise the atmosphere? Considering he thinks that a lack of atmosphere will get the team relegated. So you will be the reason for relegation on munsters own thinking if you dont get this atmosphere problem sorted.
