It was a game that meant a lot more to them than it did to us given their circumstances.
Unless of course you think there’s a very long shot that we might be able to sneak a European place, but in reality we’re just going through the motions at this point, perhaps with an eye on next season.
The Mags fell 2-1 to Watford this afternoon, after Dwight Gayle had given us the lead in the first half, two penalties from Troy Deeney condemned us to our second defeat in a row and third overall since the restart of the Premier League.
Will Bruce be in charge next season?
And whilst I may not be overly concerned with the result, the same cannot be said for other Newcastle United fans when the final whistle went, where there was a lot more animosity that the fans wanted to get off their chest, with boss Steve Bruce coming in for the lion’s share of the blame.
Actually been a fan of bruce this season but today was his fault , left defenders on way too long when they needed to be subbed off , schar and manquillo both terrible once again neither of them deserved a start

What an embarrassing second half, Bruce has no plan A or plan b, no surprise we lost after going level.

That was pathetic. Bruce clueless.

Steve Bruce HAS to be held accountable for the subs he’s made here. Absolutely baffling and appear now to have cost us points
