Easy one to get us underway, in what month during 2019 was Steve Bruce appointed Newcastle manager?

Newcastle have beaten Morecambe, Blackburn Rovers, and Newport County to reach this stage of the competition, and now they travel to London to play the Bees, who are in good form.

Thomas Frank’s men are unbeaten in 13 games and sit in fourth place in the table.

They also boast the Championship’s top goalscorer in Ivan Toney, a former Newcastle player.

However, Bruce has been praising Brentford ahead of the game, which has annoyed these Newcastle fans.

What did these Newcastle fans think of these comments?

Do you think Newcastle will beat Brentford?

No, we have been lucky to get this far

No, we have been lucky to get this far

Yes, we will go through

Yes, we will go through

The current Toon boss claimed that his side had not played well enough in the last two matches and hoped that they could get through.

Newcastle played Fulham on Saturday, and despite Scott Parker’s men being down to ten men for most of the second half, Fulham still ended the game with more possession than Newcastle, and they needed a penalty from Callum Wilson to save them.

Before that, they were thrashed 5-2 by Leeds United, so they will have to be better against Brentford, but it is clear that these Newcastle fans are not happy with Bruce’s comments.
