Fed up of naming names but some players did nothing in 90 minutes !!!! Apart from a Chester header did we have any other chances on goal ??? at this rate we are going to score less than we did last season. Mr Bruce you need to sort things out and quickly, start by dropping a few.

No cohesion of play from the defense forwards... Awful game.

To be fair, we shouldn't really be expecting anything else. The team was nowhere near good enough last season and I can't see any real improvements in personnel or ambition. I said before...8th at best and even that's already looking unlikely.

Positives. Newcastle lost first 2 last season and got promoted. Well Mr Bruce that is the only positive. Reading is a must win game. Our plan of hiring age UK players and spending 1 million could backfire. I am baffled as to what next. I have said it b4, we are a 1 man team (kodja). I hate Lerner and that idiot general krulak!!!!

Up until today I was concerned about the tactical ability of SB. Now I am worried - really worried. Still no signs of the players understanding the system they are supposed to be using, no cohesion, no teamwork and no ability to change things around when things are not going well. If SB stays, then he needs a new staff with an understanding of modern football. Cannot understand why Onomah, without a doubt our best outfield player, was taken off - was he injured ? As for Hutton - fortunately we have competition for RB ! ( unlike LB ).

Back four were abysmal. Chester beaten time and time again in 1v1 situations... Whelan running round like a headless chicken in front of them didn't help. Other than give the ball away and take bad set-pieces, what does Lansbury do???

It's taken us a long time to get a half decent Owner like Dr Xhia and unless he gets rid of this clown Bruce he will not be happy with his purchase at all.

I am always the eternal optimist, but I am worried already. Warnocks press releases were excellent, although I don't actually like him, but he got his players up for it. Many other teams will be exactly the same. I shot on target in 90 minutes will very rarely win a game. I know it is really early days, but seriously not what I was expecting. A lot of the team today are Steve Bruce signings, just not good enough on today's performance. Playing catch up already. I will now have another miserable Saturday evening. Steve, sort it, make me happy. VTID
