'What a joke' – Newcastle United fans react to Steve Bruce's defensive-looking starting XI v winless Sheffield United
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has named his Magpies XI for this evening’s trip to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United.
And here’s how #NUFC reacted to a defensive-looking Newcastle side against the winless Blades…
@tomNUFC4LIFE – “5 at the back you having a laugh bottom of the league we're playing not Liverpool.”
@NUFCblogcouk – “Man, I don't like that team one bit. 5 man defence with Dummett at LWB?! Hendrick, S Longstaff & Hayden all playing (creativity?!) Matty Longstaff dropped (Why?!). Only one attacking midfielder / winger in Fraser. Who is going to support & supply Wilson up top?”
@AddingRandomWit – “Five at the back and only two attackers on the pitch against a team on course to be the worst the PL has EVER seen. Sheffield Utd will be quaking in their boots.”
@kestrel1971 – “What a joke. Eight defensive players vs a team who hasn’t won a league game in years.”
