Pep Guardiola has criticised his team for only managing 5 goals against a poor Newcastle side a few weeks ago at the Etihad. Steve Bruce thought he was having another tactical blinder, when he decided to play both out-of-favour full backs DeAndre Yedlin and Emil Krafth.
After surrendering the FA Cup quarter final to Man City before a whistle was blown earlier this year, fans were anticipating a strong performance against last years champions… perhaps only a 2-0 beating.
Unfortunately, only 10 minutes into the game, Newcastle fans were disappointingly reminded that Steve Bruce is still their manager.
Despite this massive loss, pundits who are good friends with Bruce have come out and backed the manager, claiming he has done a fantastic job this season. Bruce has thanked the unbiased and non sycophantic press for backing him during these difficult times, when his tactical mediocrity is truly exposed.
In other news, Newcastle fans are welcoming the prospect of games against Man City being dubbed the “Human Rights Violation Derby” next season, if their Saudi backed takeover is to go through.
