Newcastle United: Steve Bruce verdict following 4-0 Arsenal hammering attracts scathing feedback

Newcastle United: Steve Bruce verdict following 4-0 Arsenal hammering attracts scathing feedback - Newcastle United

Following Newcastle United’s 4-0 loss away to Arsenal on Sunday, many supporters were bewildered in response to manager Steve Bruce’s verdict that the first half was ‘as good as we’ve played in a long time’ – with a lot of fans taking to Twitter and voicing their outrage. 

Goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette outlined a torrid afternoon from Bruce’s perspective despite going into the break 0-0. Sean Longstaff’s deflected effort, along with Allan Saint-Maximin’s strike off the woodwork, were the only moments of threat too few and far between for Newcastle – having failed to notch a goal back before Ozil and Lacazette’s late strikes sealed a deserved win for the home side.

However, despite an afternoon to forget, manager Bruce was quick to outline a perceived positive that their first half was as good as they’ve played in a ‘long time‘ (The Athletic journalist Chris Waugh via Twitter).
