Bruce – We Have A Decent Run Going – I’ve Been Very Pleased – We’ve Done OK



The lads have come back from their three-month break and have hit the ground running.

Four points from two games should have been 6 points, but we’ll take the 4 points, and we are now 12 points above the drop zone with 7 games to play.

We also have the 4th round of the FA Cup at home to Manchester City tomorrow night, so things have gone from nothing to full steam ahead as far as playing games is concerned.

Project Restart so far has been successful as long as we can keep the coronavirus infections down.

The league is due to end four weeks tomorrow, and Liverpool are the Champions of the Premier League for the first time in their history.

Hopefully, if Newcastle are acquired by the Amanda Staveley consortium, we can start making some inroads to become regularly part of the top six in the Premier League.

Here’s where we stand at the moment – still in 13th place despite those 4 points in the previous two games:

PosTeamGamesGDPoints
10Burnley38-754
11Southampton38-952
12Everton38-1249
13Newcastle38-2044
14Crystal Palace38-1943
15Brighton38-1541
16West Ham38-1339

Steve Bruce (shown above) seems very pleased with the way things are going as he had this today yesterday in his press conference:

What we have done in the last six or seven games has enabled us to be a bit more of a threat going forward.”

“Touch wood, defensively we have been rock solid, long may it continue.”

“It is important that we don’t think we have achieved something, and we don’t down tools.”

“We have put a decent little run together after lockdown and to get four points from six, which might have been six from six, had it not been a rare defensive lapse.”

“Overall, I’ve been very pleased with the way we are.

“We have one or two knocks, and we have to see how we are, on the quiet we have done OK.”

And here are the upcoming fixtures starting with with our tough FA Cup quarter-final tie at home tomorrow.

    Champs league final seems sensible. You’re supposed to claim to have a source in the club too, by the way. Just waiting for somebody with 10 followers on Twitter to confirm it and we’re all back on the bus.

    Still no red flags!!

    No he wasn’t. He knows what he’s doing then tries to wriggle out of it by saying he meant something else.

    A naked woman walks into a bar and asks for a beer
    The bartender stares at her body from head to toe then serves her a beer. She drinks it and asks for another beer.

    The bartender stares at her for longer and serves her a second beer. The woman again drinks it and asks for a third beer.

    Then the bartender starts to look at her with an amused expression, until the woman says:

    – What, have you never seen a naked woman before?

    — That I have, miss. I’m wondering where you are keeping the money to pay for the beers.

    There’s a big conference of beer producers. At the end of the day, all of the presidents of all beer companies decide to have a drink in a bar.
    The president of ‘Budweiser’ orders a Bud, the president of ‘Miller’ orders a Miller Lite, Adolph Coors orders a Coors, and the list goes on. Then the waitress asks Arthur Guinness what he wants to drink, and much to everybody’s amazement, Mr. Guinness orders a Coke!

    “Why don’t you order a Guinness?” his colleagues ask.

    “Naah. If you guys won’t drink beer, than neither will I.”

    I`m not sure where Everton stand as far a size compared to us, they have never been relegated. Always been a top tier club. and have spent more money than us over the last 10 years. No surprise there mind.

    Can you not see that I was joking? I wasn’t claiming you had pretended to be an ITK mate, just having some fun with the many who have and who have known nothing…

    God knows I have no axe to grind for Kevin Vegan
    some of the shite he’s fired my way.
    BUT
    He was cracking wise and making a joke about insiders
    not having a pop at you.

    Well if you thought that was a joke then there’s something seriously wrong with you. As I and others have made it known that it wasn’t a joke.

    Keep wriggling though. It’s good entertainment for us all.

    Mate!
