Newcastle fans react to Steve Bruce’s decision to play Schar in midfield

Newcastle crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Watford in the Premier League yesterday.

A Troy Deeney brace in the second half was enough to get the three points for the Hornets.

Newcastle took the lead through Dwight Gayle in the first half but they failed to defend properly in the second half and were rightly punished. The Magpies are now 13th in the table with 43 points and their chances of breaking into the top half seem bleak.

Steve Bruce’s decision to play Fabian Schar in the midfield has not gone down too well the fans either.
