A lot of Newcastle United fans were left baffled by Steve Bruce’s comments after the Toon were beaten by Watford 2-1.

Starting with an easy one, against which club did Shelvey make his Newcastle debut?

They have replied to a post from NUFC 360, which has a link to a post from Aaron Stokes included in it.

This post has some brief comments from Bruce, who claimed that both of the penalties given against Newcastle were soft.

This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who disagree.

Do you agree with Bruce?





The first penalty given against Newcastle was from a Matt Ritchie challenge that saw Kiko Femenia hit the deck, there was some slight contact, but Ritchie should have been less eager, and then he might not have made the foul. (1:40)

This one was more debatable than the second one as Javier Manquillo got his body shape all wrong and allowed Ismaila Sarr to turn, the Spaniard then hauled him down. (2:20)

Both penalties were thumped home by Troy Deeney, but these Newcastle fans continued to be confused by Bruce’s comments.

The Toon had taken the lead through Dwight Gayle’s third goal since the restart and could have doubled their lead if Allan Saint-Maximin had scored when he was played clean through by Gayle, but Ben Foster denied him. (1:12)

The Toon then collapsed in the second half and fell to their second defeat in a week.

It will be interesting to see how they respond to these results in their final three matches of the season.
