  • Really positive tactics there from Steve Bruce, but hey... he's a Geordie, so he must be the right man for the job!

  • @tinyclaw 29.4% possession at home to *Brighton* ... my God. Rafa understood this side's weaknesses, Bruce just has a Championship mentality.

  • 2-1 Almiron

  • Relegation six pointer
