Newcastle United: Supporters far from happy as Bruce-Willems debacle continues

Newcastle United: Supporters far from happy as Bruce-Willems debacle continues

Newcastle lost 1-0 in their Premier League opener against Arsenal at St. James’ Park last Sunday, although it seems one incident from that game is still a talking point, as Steve Bruce has attempted to clear up what happened when he subbed on Jetro Willems.

The Dutchman, who signed this summer from Eintracht Frankfurt on a season-long loan, Sky Sports, was brought into the action against the Gunners on Sunday on the 54th-minute mark, and it was just two minutes later than the defender changed his position and two minutes after that the Magpies conceded.

The only goal of the game, scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, came from a mistake from Willems too, as the left-back was pick-pocketed by Ainsley Maitland-Niles, the Arsenal man then put the ball on a plate for Aubameyang who netted, and now Bruce has been trying to explain what happened with Willems before the goal.

You can read the Magpies’ verdict on Bruce’s comments here:

The Geordies above are all very cutting in their assessment of the issue that Bruce and Willems had, and will be keen to see an improvement tomorrow against Norwich.
