    And Bruce's tactical cowardice costs Newcastle 2 points, and almost cost them all 3. What do you do when you get a 1-0 lead? Why, retreat and turtle and play like scared children, of course. Thanks, cabbage head.

    Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable. I don't know what's worse, that the cowardly coach set the team up in a cowardly, passive manner in a relegation 6-pointer that lead to an absolute drubbing, or that the owner, and I quote, "feels sorry for the manager" and that's one of the main reasons he won't be sacked. How in the MOTHER-LOVING EFF IS IT POSSIBLE that ANY POS MANAGER ISN'T SACKED UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES??? Ashley must actually WANT to be relegated for some reason.

    Well well well, what a difference coaching not scared makes. Excellent display against Spurs and unlucky to only get a point. Then...back to his old coward ways. Bruce is getting plaudits for beating Burnley, but it's two individual displays in 5 minutes after one sub a monkey could have decided to make. Otherwise...this game was painfully bad, because he set them up to play scared. Again.

    Survival now (thankfully) looks likely again, but no thanks at all to cabbage head.

    Cabbage head could screw up a wet dream. What other coach is so bad that a 2-0 lead with your opponents down to 10 men they would park the bus until the other team levels the score? So, so stupid and so, so cowardly. And then, wow, like magic, when Bruce stopped whispering his poison in their ears, the team puts pressure on West Ham, and Willock scores the winner. I mean, gee, Brucey Boy, what could you have done differently there? lol

    At least the team is...maybe not safe yet, but safe adjacent.
