    Still no word from the league and that criminal Masters. Oh and Liverpool and Tottenham have become public enemy #1 an #2 teams for me. If Sunderland were back in the PL, I'd want them to do better than those two backstabbing clubs.

    Inexplicably, Mike Ashley released the barest essential funds when they were absolutely needed, and strengthened the squad juuuust enough that maybe they won't have to fight relegation all season. Maybe. Steve Bruce IS still their coach, after all.

    Well, the season kicks off in an hour!

    Best of luck with the season.

    Should be an interesting start across Europe with a quicker restart and so much still unsettled in the transfer market

    Howay the lads! Great win to start the season, and two goals and an assist for the new boys.

    Edit: We're in a Champion's League spot, only off the top of the league in GD :D

    So I woke up this morning and said. You know what? Let me have a look at some referees this morning, and shockingly they really came through for me. Nice point for Newcastle though. They took their one chance and spurs can only hope to one day be as ruthless as the FA refs are. How do i buy a referee kit?

    Steve Bruce is HORRIFIC! One shot on goal in 2 premier league games, and that was a penalty gift. I mean, we have some good new players, and Bruce is coaching to relegation form. Shambolic.

    well the silver lining is that darlow played well. on another day it would have been 3 or more goals for spurs.

    I don't know if it is true, but I read somewhere that the FA has asked their refs to stand down a bit with the handball decisions. I hope it goes back to the way it used to be.

    Yeah, the big 6 started whining, and when they whine, things change.

    Oof, Bruce is just pathetic. Had to go through nail-biting penalties to beat NEWPORT today in the cup.

    FFS, can we fire this muppet yet? Sets up to park the bus, has maybe 10 percent possession in the 2nd half, and only got a draw because the Mags got a lucky free kick at the edge of the area and Murphy had a moment of individual brilliance. There is no plan, and you can tell there isn't, because old cabbage head whinges whenever the fans point out he doesn't have a plan.

    Oh, wait, I'm selling Brucey Boy short--he does have a plan. Better lucky than good is his plan.

    Really good and deserved win today. Brucey boy gets credit when he does right, and he did right today. I hated the idea of a back five AGAIN, but he didn't go uber-defensive with his tactics, so well done. Callum Wilson has been a cracking signing.

    The only negative is that Jeff Hendrick has selection armor--he stinks, but is an auto selection because he works hard. He's a donkey, though, and super negative. With very rare exception, he not only passes backwards, but doesn't even look up to SEE if there's a forward option, let alone try to turn upfield with the ball. He's the Newcastle version of Kyle Beckerman--just a waste of a midfield spot.

    Ugh, another scared, cowardly Steve Bruce special. Newcastle have now given up the most shots and have the fewest shots in the PL. Cabbage head is such a disgrace of a coach. Can't say we have a relegation squad either, or don't have attacking options in the side. He is spoiled for choice. All the attacking talent in the world will fail if you handcuff them, though.

    This is the extent of Steve Bruce's "tactics," in pictures:

    Game should have been over at the half because old Cabbage Head gives the team absolutely zero chance to win with his cowardly "tactics." What happens in the second half, when he actually allows the team to TRY? Miracle of miracles, they get some shots off, show some attacking threat, and actually had a CHANCE to get an equalizer! They didn't, but at least there was a chance.
