“Get used to it” – Many Newcastle fans are fuming as their club are hammered 4-0 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
On the day Newcastle confirmed that Steve Bruce would be their new head coach – the scale of the task he faces was revealed as Wolves thumped the Toon.
Newcastle started quite well, but they never threatened the goal, and a series of awful defensive errors allowed Wolves to score three before half-time – Diogo Jota with a double and Morgan Gibbs-White with the other.
As with most pre-season games, both sides made a host of changes in the second half, and the pace of the game died, but there was still time for Wolves to add another – as a Ruben Vinagre corner was headed into his net by Thomas Allan.
The result is embarrassing for Newcastle, and it shows how much work Bruce will have to do in a short period.
A lot of Newcastle fans are fuming with the result.
