Fans Have Their Say On This Crucial Decision By Bruce

We thought that Steve Bruce had to make some brave decisions for yesterday’s match against Manchester United. The performances over the past two weeks were dreadful. If there was ever a time to drop some players, it was after the 5-0 thrashing at Leicester.

We had hoped that Steve Bruce would bring in Matty Longstaff and Allan Saint-Maximin. The primary reason for this was to give the fans something to be excited about.

Allan Saint-Maximin exudes energy, and his explosive runs keep fans at the edge of their seats. We thought that including him from the start would give the game an impending air of excitement.

With Matty Longstaff being a local lad, we thought that his inclusion would give the fans another player they could really get behind. A 19-year-old Geordie making his Premier League debut at St James Park had the makings of an extraordinary story.

Steve Bruce gave the nod to both players, and it proved masterful in the end. Especially with Matty Longstaff, whose climactic game-winner provided a rare moment for some unbridled joy.

Many fans on Twitter are giving Bruce plaudits for his team selection yesterday. Here are some of those fans.

    They said they quit ?
    So who will do the December audit ?
    I’m guessing it will take time

    They also said they were appointing a new one
    Are you saying GT will do it from now on or someone else will

    Educate me

    Lol, NY Mag, I don’t get much right too often. It’s been a while since we had some real talent in the juniors with real potential to come through. Credit to Ben Dawson for working so well with the current crop and getting the Longstaffs in particular ready for the first team.

    Next season, they could be joined by Kell Watts and Owen Bailey. You heard it hear first (well, second after Genjikai)

    Err, pardon?
