Bruce Gives Update On Squad’s Fitness During Press Conference For Bournemouth



Steve Bruce has given his press conference this morning for tomorrow’s trip to face Bournemouth. A result will have Newcastle reach the 40 point total for the season. But they’ll face a desperate side in the Cherries, who are mired in 18th place at the moment.

With this being Newcastle’s fourth game in just 11 days, Bruce says he’ll rotate the squad and could bring in some players who have yet to feature since the league resumed.

Players who have yet to play who have been available include Emil Krafth, Yoshinori Muto, and Christian Atsu, who hasn’t been named in a matchday squad since the return.

Bruce pulled some of his stars in latter stages of the FA Cup quarterfinal. Hopefully, the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron will be able to go tomorrow. Though 4 starts in 11 days is a risk.

The head coach spoke about Saint-Maximin and also confirmed there were no new injuries to report. However, Matt Ritchie is still not right after being taken off against Aston Villa.

Here’s Chris Waugh’s tweet on injuries and the fitness of the squad.

Steve Bruce also shed some light on the situation with Florian Lejeune, who was injured in the friendly against Hull. Unfortunately, the Frenchman may not be able to return this season.

All in all, the injury situation isn’t too bad. The Lonstaffs returned against Manchester City, so it looks like just Ritchie will be a question mark for tomorrow with Lejeune and Ciaran Clark being unavailable.

    Yes, see what your saying and that would be a form of compensation, a face saving way. If the WTO see that as appropriate, then job done.

    The question of differential scoring potentials becomes irrelevant once you move into the real of quantum physics as there is a convergence of realities where the two factors become exactly the same.

    So end of debate I’m afraid chaps.

    I haven’t seen anyone else use it the whole time I’ve been here, yet you’ve done it twice today, even after I pointed out that it was homophobic. How do you think that will come across to any homosexuals who might be reading the blog?

    Your excuse doesn’t wash here. It’s like posting about somebody being a “negro” and then claiming you are just using the Spanish word for black. We ALL know what “queer” means to most people in 2020.

    And to think I get accused of “double-speak”.

    A suggestion to help understanding – if you’re posting something that refers to and adds to or clarifies something you’ve posted earlier, try referencing the earlier post.

    But I’m not sitting over a computer all day every day trying to draw attention to myself. That is what you seem to be revealing about yourself – a very lonely and insecure person.

    I’m sorry, but even though the word “queer” is less often used in its correct context these days, I still occasionally hear it, and have even said “that’s queer” myself at times. I don’t like that the LGBTQ+ etc etc etc have supposedly ‘reclaimed’ it. It’s a bloody word, and it has a correct meaning. Eff off with banning others using it

    Uhuh I’ll always stand up against prejudice mate, that’s a given. Calling me “queer” twice in the same day after I pointed out the homophobic connotations the first time is clearly a provocation. He knew precisely what he was doing.

    You gotta fight for your rights to say queer!

    Give me a rest.

    One person backing up a whole society vs. a throng of the same fighting for their right to use a word(!)

    If you are so hollow, why do you have a will to fight for anything at all?

    It is easy to see you are only covering your own a##es

    I think Richard Masters from the PL is afraid to pass this deal in case he gets it wrong. The way he has answered questions to the government committee this morning you would think he had signed the secret service act and worked for MI5 .
    He is not fit for the job he has. Never given a decent answer to any subject put to him yet. Needs to get his finger out his head and make the decision.
