Fans Have Their Say On This Crucial Decision By Bruce

We thought that Steve Bruce had to make some brave decisions for yesterday’s match against Manchester United. The performances over the past two weeks were dreadful. If there was ever a time to drop some players, it was after the 5-0 thrashing at Leicester.

We had hoped that Steve Bruce would bring in Matty Longstaff and Allan Saint-Maximin. The primary reason for this was to give the fans something to be excited about.

Allan Saint-Maximin exudes energy, and his explosive runs keep fans at the edge of their seats. We thought that including him from the start would give the game an impending air of excitement.

With Matty Longstaff being a local lad, we thought that his inclusion would give the fans another player they could really get behind. A 19-year-old Geordie making his Premier League debut at St James Park had the makings of an extraordinary story.

Steve Bruce gave the nod to both players, and it proved masterful in the end. Especially with Matty Longstaff, whose climactic game-winner provided a rare moment for some unbridled joy.

Many fans on Twitter are giving Bruce plaudits for his team selection yesterday. Here are some of those fans.
