2 Newcastle United players must be separated from each other – Steve Bruce’s position untenable
A new exclusive on Tuesday morning revealed how two Newcastle United players had to be separated following the loss to Tottenham as tensions inside the club rise to the surface.
Steve Bruce has overseen a disastrous start to the season, now with no wins in the first nine matches despite a generous fixture set to open the campaign.
With six defeats now and three draws, Newcastle United are already absent from the League Cup and especially second to last in the Premier League and now face a series of difficult matches.
The Mail exclusivity names Isaac Hayden and Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles as the two players who had to be separated by the staff “as lawlessness descended after their loss to Spurs”.
The newspaper said the Newcastle United players in question clashed in the tunnel, with “exchanged thrusts” as they clashed “head to head”.
The Mail says there is a lot of unhappiness within the squad, with many players desperate for the new owners to sack Steve Bruce as soon as possible, certainly ahead of the next game at Crystal Palace on Saturday, with players saying they are in disbelief that the new owner allowed the head coach to continue.
The report states that many Newcastle United players are so upset that they even expressed their displeasure with Steve Bruce’s tactics in the dressing room after Sunday’s game.
The vast majority of Newcastle’s 50,000 fans inside St James Park also wished they had the opportunity to show their disbelief at Sunday’s tactics… Callum Wilson with the sole effort of a Newcastle player all the time. match and very difficult to even figure out where some players were supposed to play.
Everyone understands the problems that have been presented to the new owners, only getting the keys to St James Park a few months after the start of the season and with a new manager who is desperately needed. Steve Bruce having this Newcastle squad in the throes of relegation issues when they are capable of doing much better, Bruce clearly should have been sacked long before the new owners arrived. seven wins in these matches in the last ten months
However, they were entrusted with this massive problem and now action is needed immediately, the utter mess of tactics and set-up on Sunday was preceded by an absolutely embarrassing pre-game press conference. An unprofessional Steve Bruce calling on reporters to “slap” their bosses.
Even if Graeme Jones is given a goalie role, it would at least see the massive negative that is Steve Bruce taken out of the equation ahead of this game at Crystal Palace.
