Bruce Describes ‘Strange And Unique’ Situation With Magpie’s Injury



Ciaran Clark made his first Premier League start in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea yesterday. The 31-year-old had been out of action since being withdrawn at halftime in the 7-1 win at Morecambe in the EFL Cup.

As luck would have it, just as one defender gets back to full fitness, another suffers an injury, or two. Jamaal Lascelles was pulled at halftime yesterday with two separate knocks.

The Chronicle has published the following comments from Steve Bruce about why his captain didn’t come out for the second half:

“Unfortunately he wanted to have a go with his knee, he hurt it.

“The reason he came off is not his knee, when he went to run out he felt his thigh.

“It’s a strange and unique situation.

“We don’t know how bad it is until we see him on Monday.”

Lascelles received treatment after seemingly injuring his knee when he made an excellent stop on Timo Werner in the box. However, Lascelles was able to soldier on until halftime.

It was at that time that he felt a problem with his thigh and was replaced by Fabian Schar. We’ll find out more tomorrow after he presumably undergoes a scan on his thigh.

Jamaal’s injuries don’t sound like they’re going to be too bad. However, it is getting perilously close to the heavy holiday schedule where there are 7 matches over two-and-a-half weeks entering the New Year.

After last season’s debacle, where Florian Lejeune was forced to start 4 matches over 12 days after returning from his knee injury, we need as many players fit as possible.

    FINALLY Shearers coming out and speaking against Bruce! It took long enough. But it drives home even harder just how brutal a job Bruce is doing if one of his best friends is finally willing to criticise him in public.

    That probably wasnt an easy article for Shearer to put out, but fair bloody play to him.

    North I think most of us a just on autopilot until this takeover happens. But it’s pretty obvious now at this stage will will definitely get there. Biggest thing I’m excited about is Bruce getting the sack. Just hope we dont have to wait until the summer.

    Cowardly people like you shouldn’t be allowed on the internet and why don’t you add something relevant for a change rather than go at me? Because you have a sad bored life and have to attack people online you strange man.

    Your irrelevant to me but you have this sad obsession with a man online lmao go back to bed

    Fair play to shearer, a lot of people slating him for not being hard on Bruce on motd but if you think about it he’s under contract at the beeb and won’t risk his lively hood not even for criticising his mate.

    Shearer barely said anything about Bruce, he’s been sending them out like that for 18 months and that’s all Shearer can muster.

    Never questioned his player selection or formation.

    If that’s Shearer criticising Bruce its no wonder cabbage head is deluded.

    The article is what he said on MOTD, naff all really.

    “Bruce sent them out like that and must take some blame”

    Bet that harsh truth really hurt Bruce and made him take notice.

    Really insightful from Shearer, bet Bruce is gutted.

    North let’s hope the legal teams can get things sorted before the end of the window. Saying that tho I still believe a Poch with this set of players would get far much more out of this then than Bruce

    Munster baby.

    Last week you managed to insult and abuse 5 people with foul language, all on different subjects, all in the same post. This week it’s up to 15 !!! – Just a sample see below:-

    ”What a dump this blog has turned into. A bunch of pricks obsessed with adoring a previous manager, There must be 15 fools here who are certainly don’t represent the geordies and nufc fans I knew. Well done, keep going, you’ll soon have about 20 posters here.”

    Not sure if you write this kind of stuff when you’re inebriated. If so I guess you must drink a lot. It just sounds like you’re having another one of your Trump style spoilt brat tantrum and hissy fits.

    You certainly haven’t mastered the art of rational, informed and educated conversation, despite continually telling us how smart you are.

    For someone who admittedly likes stirring things and gets bored when people aren’t rowing, you’re the one whom it seems is incredibly easy to get a rise out of.

    Lineker must have watched Jake Humphrey yesterday as he did to Shearer what Jake did to Jonas.

    Lineker asked if it was down to players or should manager take the blame.

    Shearer replied

    The manager has to take some of the blame as he sent them out there.

    Pretty much all he said on the manger.

    I had not bothered to connect that our coach Stephen Clemence was the son of the great goalkeeper Ray who recently passed away. My condolences go to him and congratulations for the strength to carry on his role yesterday.

    Shearer never says enough on the truth of matters.

    This is the problem we have with the clueless pundits who sprout there crap because they think he’s a nice guy they don’t go all in but that is the problem we need people to start speaking the truth and they are very few and far between
