Steve Bruce Newcastle

Steve Bruce believes that his Newcastle United side are now starting to show the type of resolve required to play more attacking football. Before lockdown, Bruce had switched back to a back four with a degree of success with wins at West Brom and Southampton. United began Project Restart with another victory with a convincing and impressive display against Sheffield United. When asked about playing with a back four and getting more bodies forward,

Steve Bruce said “We tried to change a Leicester, if you remember (lost 5-0). I know we went down to 10 men, but the one thing I detected very, very quickly was they weren’t ready for change. With the experience, I would like to think I’ve got, it was, ‘Well why do I change it? Let them be comfortable’. The time came when I thought that our big players up the top end of the pitch weren’t becoming a threat in the final third. They were working so hard for the team, but we had lost that little bit of counter-attack, if you like. We scored three against West Brom in a good cup tie, we’ve scored three again (v Sheff United), so things are looking up.”
