New owners and same problem for the “Magpies”
New owners. The same problems.
Callum Wilson put Newcastle ahead with a header just 107 seconds into the club’s new era under Saudi ownership, but visiting Tottenham turned it around to win 3-2 in the Premier League.
Newcastle have just three points from eight games, slumped in the relegation zone and unable to spend on new players until the transfer market opens in January.
The immediate change could be on the bench. Steve Bruce is still in command and completed his 1,000th game as a manager – a milestone that was not mentioned in the presentation of the plans – but his days with the team are numbered.
The Newcastle fans themselves began to chant that he was going to be fired.
It is somewhat uncertain whether Bruce will make it to the 1,001 game as manager for Newcastle when he visits Crystal Palace next Saturday.
“That will be decided by other people,” Bruce said. “If I were to read or see everything that has been said in the last week, I would not be here today, but my job is to get results.”
In the other Sunday game, Angelo Ogbonna’s goal in the 74th minute gave visiting West Ham a 1-0 win over Everton.— AP
