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.

    From the first moment he stepped on the pitch for us, Mitro always looked like his temper was going to be his downfall. Absolutepy ridiculous thing to do there. He’s a useful player but he’s a disgrace to the game doing things like that.

    Can anyone think of another player that’s been booked within the first 30 seconds of their debut? Mitro managed it in 22 seconds for us. Got to be a club record surely, maybe even a league record.

    Mitro hasn’t seemed to calmed his ways. Always remember being at the Southampton game in Gallowgate end and Mitro came on and did that flying challenge nearly crippled the lad and probs should of got sent off

    “Bruce began the 1984–85 season by scoring an own goal in the first minute of his debut for Norwich against Liverpool”

    Mund it’s a shame really because he has goals in him and can be a really effective presence on the pitch, but he’s too much of a liability with that temper. Best off elsewhere, as much as we could do with a goalscorer.

    What a start from our Brucey boy, poor fella. I wonder if anyone lobbed any vegetables at him for that one?

    My limited experience of Majorca has been very favourable and will go again when they get on top of this virus.

    Shteeve McClaren commentary on the Leeds Fulham game! What a bellend he is! Still stating the obvious as though it was exclusive and telling us all about Mitrovich as though he was his coach! Oh I forgot; he was but boy does he talk shite!
