Newcastle United: Fans react to questionable Steve Bruce tactics following Wolves draw

In the wake of Newcastle United’s tame 1-1 draw to Wolves at St. James’ Park, manager Steve Bruce’s post-match comments have sparked major criticism from supporters.

The Magpies originally took the lead after a fairly solid first-half display, with Jamaal Lascelles’ thumping header proving the difference heading into the second half.

Following a positive first 45 minutes, Newcastle were then steadily pegged on to the back foot, eventually resulting in Wolves’ Jonny scoring the equaliser with just a quarter of an hour left to play.

Speaking to after the game, Bruce outlined exactly what went wrong for the Magpies after they looked seemingly in control.

The Newcastle manager stated (via The Chronicle): “I was pleased with the way we played in the first half – the second half was very difficult to say the least.

“I think we just decided that we’d just defend and try to protect what we had, but we didn’t take care of the ball well enough.”

As a result, a fair few Newcastle fans have begged the question of why the team didn’t go for a killer second goal or at least show some positivity.

Here’s how the supporters reacted to Bruce’s comments:
