Newcastle Collapse Late And Lose 4-1 to Manchester United



Newcastle were able to hold on until late despite the Red Devils being the superior side at St James Park. However, three late goals from Manchester United resign Newcastle to defeat despite the heroics of Karl Darlow.

Newcastle came out unchanged after holding on to end the first half all square. However, Isaac Hayden lasted all of two minutes before going down with an apparent muscle injury. Bruce brought Fabian Schar on for Isaac.

Newcastle almost got another lead in the 50th minute. After some superb work by Allan Saint-Maximin down the left, he flicked in a cross from deep inside the box that Callum Wilson’s outstretched foot tapped towards goal. David de Gea made a spectacular diving save to keep the ball out.

Five minutes later, Marcus Rashford seemed to lose possession after driving into the box, but VAR did a belated review and recommended referee Craig Pawson take a look. It was a questionable reversal by Pawson as he awarded the penalty for a foul by Jamal Lewis.


However, super Karl Darlow righted the wrong with an outstanding save on the subsequent spot-kick by Bruno Fernandes. Darlow guessed correctly and dove right to swat the ball away and keep the game level.

Jonjo Shelvey had a blistering effort saved by de Gea after finding space just outside the box in the 69th minute. De Gea again was forced into a diving save as Newcastle started to ask more questions of Manchester United.

Bruce made his second change bringing Ryan Fraser on for Joelinton in the 72nd minute. Karl Darlow also needed treatment from an earlier collision with Marcus Rashford. The 30-year-old was visibly uncomfortable with an apparent groin problem.

Manchester United were lethal on a late break in the 86th minute and snatched the lead through Bruno Fernandes. Substitute Donny van de Beek won the ball deep and played Rashford on the break. The striker found an overlapping Fernandes on the left and he blasted a close shot past a helpless Karl Darlow.

Bruce immediately pulled Jeff Hendrick for Miguel Almiron but it was Manchester United who would find the next goal. Aaron Wan-Bissaka got his first Manchester United goal with a cracking shot from inside the box that Darlow could do nothing about.

The visitors added another with a long ball that freed Marcus Rashford for a one on one with Darlow. The striker’s shot got under Darlow to pile on the misery at St James Park.

    Where’s the sound effect “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING”?

    Should have lots of recordings from the Pardew era…

    Any fan who paid £14.95 for that then shame on you.

    Bruce has to go and I’m praying the powers to be are thinking the same.

    Sick of this now and would love to see what the Bruce almighty fan group think of that shower of shite

    Where did that come from.

    Too many dodgy scores and incidents today to be natural.

    hendrick and shelvey the slowest midfield in the PL and shelvey just the worst on set pieces. we paid the price for being predictably gutless.

    Nodding dog coach totally out of his depth and at times not just stubborn but idiotic.

    Can’t fault Jonjo’s performance either he was carrying the midfield almost by himself and ran out of steam around the 70 minute mark, didn’t give up trying though.

    Hendrick will probably have one good game this season and that was against West Ham second half. We miss Diame badly.

    Hendrick has had enough opportunities
    Its time to accept he is a poor player
    He Cant tackle. He Cant pass.
    Offensively useless. Defensively anonymous
    Longstaff is a far better central midfielder
    Miggy a far better attacking midfielder
    Fraser/Murphy are far better right wingers
    Even Barlaser and Longstaff Junior give us more than Jeff
    In summary Hendrick shouldnt even be in the match day squad
    Let alone the first 11

    Schar was much better than Hayden when he came on. Must start the next game. Hayden shouldn’t even be in the squad. Awful player.

    Henry Saivet is better than all the three central midfielders in the team today. At least he has pace and skill.

    I’m almost convinced myself Hendricks has it in his contract to start so many of the opening games because why the foot do we entertain him in our starting 11??

    Squad player at best and was awful tonight so was big Joe and just tells me Bruce cannot make the big decisions for the benefit of the team or he just doesn’t see.

    BBC Web site had a heat map visual.

    Our penalty box was red
    Theirs was green

    Bruce doesn’t know that’s where goals are mostly scored to win matches

    Sheffield Wednesday are bottom of the Championship. Lasting legacy there

    Mr Bruce, you can’t bleed black and white when you have a soft spot for red.
    And they scored all the goals, yes being defensive really worked out well dipshit.

    Holding R2 on your dualshock controller while flicking the thumbstick to do rainbow flicks doesn’t mean he can do it in real life.

    Everyone seemed to know we should of been the one putting the pressure on a poor lacking confidence Man utd but Bruce, why is this man even a manager, he quite literally has no tactics atall… We have to methods of getting the ball forward, hit and hope to Wilson or pass to Saint Max and hope he dribbles up the length of the pitch

    Bruce keeps playing hendrick because to write him off now, would be to admit he is clueless when it comes to recruitment
    He is a dinosaur who prioritises “Homegrown” talent over real talent
    Hence you have players like hendrick taking up places in the first 11

    Not even going to watch MOTD as squirmy Lineker will be grinning like the Cheshire cat

    Bruce has nowhere to hide

    The takeover needs to be in Toon by Xmas along with Pooch to see Max and the team to glory
