Newcastle United fans left fuming at Steve Bruce's 'mind-boggling' selection and 'disjointed' formation
Steve Bruce has named his starting XI to face Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon – and Sean Longstaff has returned!
And, as always, fans have been quick to react to the news on social media.
Newcastle United are hovering just one place and two points above the relegation zone but do have a game in hand on 18th-placed Fulham.
Indeed, the Magpies’ last win came back in February when his side defeated Southampton 3-2 at St James’ Park.
Here, we take a look at how YOU reacted to Bruce’s starting XI on Twitter:
@agbnufc_: “2 weeks to prepare for this and it's the same old 5ATB formation. At least no Hendrick I guess.”
@MichaelNUFC_: “How can Krafth, Shelvey, Gayle keep getting games in 2021?”
@WorWilsonNUFC: “Oh wow a half0decent side for once.”
@adamNUFC__: “We’re going down.”
@FeaturingMax1: “That's honestly awful. #bruceout.”
@JxrdanT97: “EMILE KRAFTH CB. 5-0 home defeat incoming”
@alexwooda392: “Huge chance for both Sean Longstaff and Dwight Gayle today. Hopefully this team can produce today #nufc #NEWTOT.”
@Geeny200: “Krafth and Dummett both playing CB by the looks of it. I like the Murphy start and let's hope Saint can get on the pitch after HT. #NUFC.”
@hellojamesj: “A Krafth Lascelles and Dummett back 3 is not the news I wanted today. #nufc”
@harrydecosemo: “Looks like five at the back again for #nufc. ASM back on the bench. No Wilson yet. Gayle starts, hopefully up front...”
@JakeJackmann: “This is an absolutely mental team. #nufc”
@lee_wilson1: “What on earth is this team. The selections are mind-boggling... what formation are we playing. I’ve honestly never seen a more disjointed mess #nufc”
