Bruce Makes Just Two Changes In Our Predicted Team For Spurs



This is the team I suspect Steve Bruce will name for Sunday’s match against Tottenham at St. James’ Park. It has two changes from the 3-0 defeat to Brighton two weeks ago.

During his press conference on Friday, Bruce asserted that Callum Wilson was likely another week away from a return. While he did say Allan Saint-Maximin could play a part, I can’t see the Frenchman starting just yet. Though having him available from the bench will be a boost.

The front three remains the same from Brighton. However, the extra two weeks for Almiron will hopefully help him produce a better performance. Ryan Fraser bagged two goals on international duty so maybe he can carry some of that confidence into this match.

Bruce seems determined to rely on experience so that’s why Jeff Hendrick could come in for the injured Isaac Hayden. It was Hendrick who replaced Hayden at Brighton. Until Bruce proves otherwise, it’s hard to predict he’ll hand one of the Longstaff brothers a chance.

The other change comes to the backline with Federico Fernandez making his return to the starting lineup after missing the last 12 games. He has been on the bench for the last three but was unable to unseat Ciaran Clark.

Bruce said there could be a change in formation for Sunday. However, I suspect Bruce is holding out for Wilson’s return. If the striker will be back next week, Bruce could be hesitant to do make too many changes this weekend.

    Ah lovely stuff, nearly same lineup that got completely schooled by that global footballing powerhouse Brighton then. Sound that.

    ASM and Wilson double substitution in the 105th minute at 5-0 down incoming then is it. Wouldn’t be at all surprised if he took Dubravka and Lascelles off for them just so he could say ‘I went full attack mode what the fans wanted’ in his press conference.

    Cheers Brucey.

    Toon22,

    I see what you’re getting at.

    But he doesn’t care about anyone does he?
    You don’t get to be big Mikey if you care about people.
    He lost repsect for the fans when some randoms had a go at his daughter in the stadium back whenever pal.

    Who did we have in midfield against Everton?
    That’s the performance we need against Spurs.
    I can’t believe how good we were and we thought we’d cracked it.
    Has Bruce chucked Jones under the bus?
    The regime must have recognised that Bruce was struggling, to bring in Jones; that’s another reason he has to stick to Bruce having brought in Jones!

    The only way he gets near his money back is through a sale.

    Can’t quantify how much the advertising has been worth to him over the years but it must be large. Is what he’s eventually started paying for it the right amount? I don’t think so.

    He wants his 300 million, fair enoughster. He’s gambling on Bruce coz he’s rich enough to make that sort of gamble.

    He treats us like any other company he owns, no sentiment, full on business model.

    Think about the TV money we get every year
    He will keep more than half stright off the bat

    Why sell us ?
    We advertise his tat for free
    He gets to gamble on players , makes money doing it
    And has a cash injection every summer
    Selling us would give him a lumpa but the gravy train ends there
    Why would he ?
    He can make the cash back within 5 years easy
    Has done the whole time
    Built his tat on our backs
    Probably hasnt a clue how to do things without his cash flow anymore

    Hes not going to sell us unless he i forced too

    Jane your a stalwart of the blog, it wouldn’t be the same without you. I admire your fortitude, and your ability to shrug off any criticism. Your attitude to watch all different leagues, and your ability to bring up statistics on any given team. You can have my crown any day. Of course you could never surpass my love for Newcastle. But it’s more of a burden now.

    Who said it didn’t happen? You running with the fact it’s another Ashley wind up? I think it could of well happens tbf as he started off actually giving a foot and he is most certainly the type of man to hold a grudge of that sort
