Five Lads Get Appearances On Loan With Woodman Facing His First Defeat

Freddie Woodman made his seventh straight start at home against Nottingham Forest today. It was his first taste of defeat as Forest grabbed a late goal to win the game 0-1. Freddie narrowly missed claiming his fourth clean sheet of the season. Swansea remain top of the Championship but a Leeds win tomorrow at Barnsley will see them reclaim the top spot.

Rolando Aarons did not feature for Wycombe Wanderers due to an injury suffered in last week’s match.

Dan Barlaser seems to have lost his place at Rotherham United. The midfielder was replaced at half-time two weeks ago and did not feature last weekend. Dan made a late substitute appearance today as Rotherham soundly defeated Bolton at home 6-1.

Elias Sorensen again did not make the first eleven as Kelland Watts and Stevenage hosted Carlisle in a big match for both clubs. Kelland Watts made his seventh straight start but Stevenage fell 2-3 to a late goal by Carlisle. Stevenage drop to the bottom of the table as Carlisle climb to the 16th position. Sorensen finished the game as an unused substitute.

Liam Gibson made his first league start for Grimsby Town as they traveled to face Oldham. Liam was replaced in the 65th minute in a tactical change down 1-0. Former Sunderland midfielder Jordan Cook was brought on to replace him as the Mariners fought for a leveler. However, three minutes after the change, Oldham bagged a second goal. But Grimsby fought back for a 2-2 draw with Cook getting one of the goals.

Nathan Harker is back in the Blyth Spartans side after being a substitute for the last four matches. Blyth traveled to Southport where they were defeated 2-0 . It was a Blyth debut for former Newcastle United youth player Jack Hunter. Former Magpie Callum Roberts also plays for Blyth.

    It was interesting for 25 mins. so better than was expected I suppose. I thought Hayden played well in the middle again managing to win the ball back several times from players who are normally hard to dispossess.

    Under our last manager we were “too defensive” or “too many long balls”. Just wondering exactly what we are calling our performances this year under our new top notch manager? Where is this open attacking football all you SB apologists said we would get under him?

    I think you would find that any manager managing us would have to set us up that way. The gulf in class between us and the top 6 is frightening.

    So that’s a pretty unfair accusation. Who were the people saying we would play attacking football under Bruce? I don’t remember reading that anywhere.

    Steve Bruce was asked by the Chronicle if this attacking style was what we could expect to see when the Premier League kicks off:

    “That is the way we are going to play.
    “We are going to try and play.

    “I have always tried that and the system suits us.

    “It puts us with two at the top end of the pitch, which gives you a chance.”

    Krafth was particularly poor today and hasn’t played well in any game so far – saying that jetro also was guilty of giving the ball away needlessly on a number of occasions as was atsu , in fact we seemed to fall apart a bit once they scored and there were a lot of error prone performances

    At a game today and the fans were singing “you’re going down with the Geordies”. Not pleasant.

    I’m not mentioning names but a few posters notable for their dislike of our former manager claimed, after a couple of friendly wins that the football would be more attacking under Bruce.

    You’ve highlighted errors by 2 international defenders who have played
    5 times in the PL between them.

    Not withstanding today was away to one of the best teams in Europe

    Too quick to judge methinks

    Well that’s hysterical Jail.

    It didn’t take Bruce long to realise that this squad isn’t capable of playing two up top because we got massively found out against Norwich.

    He reverted back to a more defensive mindset which was the correct thing to do.

    Dont know why people thought we’d be more attacking haha.

    Surely with var the game should keep running then get pulled back?
    Twice today we were flagged offside when we wernt.
    Willems goal was class more of that please.
    Looks like he may be decent like, how much is the reported buyout to go with his loan?

    We did what we could with the players we have, a top manager definitely makes a big difference with quality players. With a limited team you can only play to its strengths and Bruce has soon realised that we have to play with Rafa’s style, it’s our only way of picking up points, if we over attacked every team in the Premier league would pick us apart.
    Avoiding relegation will be a successful season.

    On the Almiron debate, he has blistering pace, can control the ball and beat his man and will improve his passing and shooting when he’s not trying too hard.

    Nothing really matters as long as Ashley is our owner. The sooner he buggers off the better.

    Zichenko- what a disgraceful player. He should’ve been booked for simulation and should be ashamed of himself.

    Nah, Pep needs to bring on Kevin De Bruyne pronto, who then needs to score a couple goals and maybe assist on a goal.

    Look at how daring Norwich plays against city. While we go backs against the wall for 90mins.

    We can’t even compete with Norwich. This team will get relegated.
