The Lowdown: Unrest

There has been some unrest around St. James’ Park over the past few days, as The Daily Mail reported a training ground bust-up between Graeme Jones and Dwight Gayle.

As per The Athletic, some people within the North East club ‘weren’t impressed’ by Bruce taking part of the last international break off to go on holiday.

The Latest: Tension rising

According to The Daily Mail, some players reacted with ‘anger’ towards Bruce after he called a meeting on Tuesday, as they felt that his use of running statistics is ‘misguided’.

There is also reportedly a feeling that the training schedule is made to suit Bruce more than the players themselves, as a Tyneside source revealed that they were like: ‘What is he (Bruce) talking about?’

The Verdict: Not ideal

It is certainly not ideal that there appears to be a continuous uproar around the Magpies, and that certainly seems to be translating onto the pitch.

They currently sit in a worrying 19th place in the Premier League table with no wins and just one point from their opening four matches, with Leeds United at home to come (Premier League).

Nonetheless, everything will have to be put to one side for now as the team really need to focus on putting on a performance in front of the Toon Army.
