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.

    If Shelvey and Hayden are injured for tomorrow Bruce should hang his head in shame. All for that drab performance against Villa.

    So do you think I am actually waiting for somebody on twitter with 10 followers to announce this too? It was a joke mate, sorry if you didn’t see the funny side but it was just a joke.

    The barman says:

    “Hiya Lee Marshall, still getting paid by the club to insult fans?”

    KV he was not insulting a fan this time, he was insulting you …..

    WL toon your comment=87 i could not agree with you more, with the technology in this day and age the premier league would be extremely naive to think it will stop world wide piracy if the saudis have thier house in order, MS toon perhaps if sky and BT Sports stopped charging extortionate prices in the first place and stopped ripping people off there would be no piracy, i enjoy reading your posts WL toon, you seem quite intelligent and level headed and talk a lot of sense.

    Kevin can’t do anything without being attacked haha this one was clearly a joke, if anyone else said the same thing you wouldn’t have batted an eyelid. Guess you’ve made a rod for your own back with your previous controversies though KV.

    It wasn’t a joke. You do this all the time on here. Have a pop and then when they come back at you, you then go into wriggle mode an try playing the victim card. I know when a joke is a joke. I spent 8 years in the forces. Where a sense of humour and banter is needed

    It`s an on gong argument about how you define a big club. Clubs such as Preston and Blackpool were massive back in the day but are,nt really classed as big clubs nowadays.
    I think basically a club is gauged by its size by how much it is worth. Look at the top ten clubs in Europe and look at their value. Incredible,

    Shirebrook,

    So do you think I’m actually waiting on somebody with 10 followers on twitter to confirm it, too? It was all a joke mate. Sorry you took it the wrong way but this is messing the blog up a treat so I’m not going to say any more on it, hope you understand now.

    It has been scientifically proven that girls reach the age of puberty earlier than boys. Girls develop boobs around the age of thirteen…
    …boys develop them around the age of forty.

    Kevin was clearly just saying “Your Champions League final prediction might be about right at this rate but dont forget to add in the fact you have sources and are ITK like everyone else on Twitter is”. He was in no way saying you claim to be ITK, not even close.

    Mund, yeah I get it and can see why people are a lot more defensive when KV posts due to previous issues on here but dont think this warrants the reaction it’s got.

    In a perfect world, we get outplayed but win 1-0 tomorrow, we get taken over during next 7-10days. Crowds are allowed back by Wembley final day, we win FA cup under new owners.

    Next season, league cup winners and 7th in league (just missing UEFA cup qualification), season after, Champions league entry, get to Semis.

    Following Season, Champions, FA Cup, and Champions league treble!!

    Then I woke up, smiling, read this lot and mostly groaned, hey ho 🙂

    That was the impression I got from reading his articles and tweets, too. He’s just taking shots in the dark like all journalists are. Sadly for us, there’s more money in selling the takeover than in admitting you know nothing, so every journo is suddenly an ITK.

    Bruce will put out a defensive squad first half 2-3 goals behind then stick the young guns on the second half.
