I posted an article on this very site just a few weeks ago saying how I believed that Newcastle would be fine, and this was based on the fact they had just beaten Tottenham narrowly lost on penalties to Leicester City and drew with Watford at home.
These were all the signs of a team that has either given up on the manager or resigned themselves to relegation.
The cameras panned to Bruce, and he looked lost like a man who has run out of ideas already.
The defence that was so good last year look like total strangers now.
The signs are grim for Newcastle, and something has to change, or the Sky Bet Championship awaits them.
