Despite playing for the Under-23’s during their 4-1 win over Middlesbrough last night, Elliot Anderson has been named on the Newcastle United bench today.
He will sit alongside Dwight Gayle who has, once again, been named as a substitute in the Premier League and Bruce’s decision to omit Gayle has seemingly split the fan base.
Here, we take a look at some of the reaction to Newcastle United’s team news:
@bigdanny185: Struggled to score last week so this week we play the same team and leave our strikers on the bench. Good job!
@CTNatural: Gayle is our best striker after Wilson & yet he does not get a game feel for him he should of been sold in the summer #nufc #WOLNEW
@WolverSteve: Makes sense to me, come on lads!
@RazzleDazzle_26: Would love to know what Fabian Schar has to do to get a start
@decarteret_john: Have to start playing Gayle. We need goals.
@DanielK19594026: Would like to see Anderson & gayle on around the 70th minute!!
@greggas90: Other managers change the team when you dont get the result you want, Steve Bruce on other hand sees somekind of positive in every game!! #nufc
@bobblestea: Would swap Joe for Gayle but work with what we’ve got I suppose
@Clappertron: Unchanged is not the positive you think it is when NUFC are concerned…
@eggnchips2: Actually don't really have any issues with this...would rather 11 players, who played together in the last game, had a chance at building on that performance rather than trying to change for change sake.
