Here’s what you had to say on Twitter...

@liamwilson1805 – “Granted #nufc have had a decent start to the season but today highlighted Bruce's problems. No game management at all. 1-0 down, just throw some more strikers on, keep doing the same thing and hope it works. Ended the game with 4 strikers, two of them playing winger. Didn't work.”

@CaliMagNUFC – “That was a proper lesson for all those whining about ASM and Miggy not scoring or assisting. They are so important to how we play.

@glenn2502 - “Thought we were v poor today Longstaff was awful, really miss Miggy and ASM even Shelvey lets hope a couple are back for the weekend, they were there for the taking a poor side i thought with a full side we would be coming out with a comfortable 3 points i reckon.”

@danjpeg – “We're gonna win some and lose some. That's the type of team we are. Especially without a bunch of our first eleven. Go again next week.”

@Geeny200 – “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried. Palace at home next.”

@mickey1more – “No shots on target! The Bruce effect.”

@Will_Neale9 – “40 million quid we paid for Joelinton.”

@RoryPBull - “Needed Joelinton to step up today, to take a beaten with big Andy since Burnley are quite physically side but just goes to show without St Maximin and Almiron we have nothing going forward, don’t rate Atsu in the slightest.”
