Report – Bruce Told He Has No Money To Spend in January



With next month shaping up to be monumental for Newcastle’s season, there is a worrying report from The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards. According to the report, there is no money for reinforcements in January.

To compound matters, both Allan Saint-Maximin and Ryan Fraser could be out for much of next month. Saint-Maximin is still recovering from the after-effects of Covid and his return date is unknown. Fraser has picked up a groin injury which kept him out of the Manchester City defeat on Saturday.

Reports earlier this season suggested that Steve Bruce would be backed in January, if necessary. However, those claims have shifted significantly as this season has progressed with more recent reports indicating Bruce will only be able to bring in loans.


That is where Bruce is focusing after having been told that there will be no money for permanent signings, according to Edwards. Newcastle still have both domestic loan slots available as Bruce could favor bringing in Premier League proven players.

Unfortunately, it appears that any move for Tottenham’s Dele Alli is not one that is being considered. Newcastle cannot afford his wages and Alli is unwilling to come to the North East.

The recruitment team is also looking at players in Europe for possible loans with the option to buy, similar to the deals struck for Valentino Lazaro and Nabil Bentaleb last January.

This season is heading south very quickly and if Bruce is not backed in January, it could become a very slippery slope. Ashley has opened his wallet in the past when Newcastle have been in danger of a relegation fight.

Whether he’s willing to do that this time around with revenues down due to Covid remains to be seen.

    Sean Longstaff is even worse than Matty. Both are technically ok, but they lack the stength and power to command the middle of the park. They may be suited to someone like Cremonese from Serie C

    During Rafa’s time at NUFC, we had a team with spirit, fight and passion.

    A team that would graft for every point.

    Sadly that passion seems to disappeared into the Fog on the Tyne.

    GP it was a very strange comment lol

    Let me put something on record here and now.

    I’d absolutely love it if Bruce turned it around and proved my opinion of him wrong. What fan wouldn’t want that?

    But he is shit and nothing will change that

    Look I don’t profess to be a master tactician but we will never win playing the ball back to our keeper. Like we often seem to be doing.

    They need to press up on the opposition to make them move the ball

    Players need to move into space to take a pass and be ready to pass again moving the ball towards the opposition goal. If the ball is in the opposition half the other team can’t score!

    So we won`t be spending any money next month. no surprise in that at all.
    Hey it`s all coming out now, we are only making the numbers up in the PL , no money spent next month, i wonder which bean is next to be spilt.
    Takeover is off maybe? it`s the only news yet to come out which could make it any worse.

    Goth.
    The truth is with mund he likes to jump in all the time with two feet but if someone else does it and they are not in his fan club he gets on his high horse.
    Also he is still banging on about the Saudi takeover.
    If it happens it happens but he should stop building people’s hopes up.

    “Our game against Liverpool needs to be called off.

    the Man City players would have had negative tests before they played us.

    I dont think we will have any caught any more covid from the Man City game.

    None of our players got within 2 metres of a City player all match so should be fine.

    Villa are 8 points above us with a goal difference to ours of 21

    Might be a clue there for Bruce that using strikers to score goals and winning matches might be a way forward to achiving his target of survival.

    Numbness sets in
