Bruce Rules Two Out For Sunday With Late Fitness Test For Returning Striker

On Wednesday, Newcastle published some images of that day’s training session. In the photographs, only Matt Ritchie was not featured in any of the images.

In his press conference this morning, Steve Bruce has confirmed that all players who have trained this week except for Florian Lejeune will be in contention for Sunday. Dwight Gayle has trained all week and will face a late fitness test.

Here is the update by The Athletic’s Chris Waugh:

Injury analyst Ben Dinnery has also issued the following update which says that Shelvey’s hamstring problem is not as bad as initially feared. It looks like he could also be in contention for Sunday.

It’s looking good on the injury front with some players coming back into the fold. Isaac Hayden, though, will be out through suspension. We are glad that Matty Longstaff was mentioned by Bruce as being part of the equation. We would like to see him feature in Sunday’s game in some capacity.

What Will Be The Result Against Manchester United On Sunday?

  • Loss (59%, 1,040 )

    It’s not even about motivation for me, he just isn’t setting them up properly. There appears to be no structure which is concerning given we are playing the same shape at the back, we look totally exposed.

    Unfortunately there’s no chance of a takeover this season because we are relegation favourites.Nobody is going to risk £300-350 million on the club now.We are stuck with the parasite for the next few years in the championship,possibly longer.Its going to be pure humiliation this season and the crowds will drop massively.Our only chance of a sale was before a ball was kicked and that didn’t happen.Nobody will touch us with a barge pole now.

    Looks like another Red Herring

    There is a city called New Castle in Delaware (it even has a Newcastle Airport)

    Not been on much this week, been to London, Manchester and Edinburgh with work, so not had much time to catch a breath let alone catch up here.

    So, not sure if anyone has shared this article / interview with Joseph Dagrosa, in which he gives an idea of why he bought Bordeaux (storied club, passionate fans, not achieving its potential), what the challenges are can’t compete with PSG financially so have to find new ways to do that) and how he had to win over the city, as well as convince an unwilling owner to sell.

    Sounds very like our situation, scarily so. The interview is from December last year. He actually sounds like a genuine guy.
