  • Greenwood scores as Man Utd beat Leeds 4-0 in Australia
  • Newcastle beaten 4-0 by Wolves as Bruce appointed manager

Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford put Manchester United on course for a 4-0 pre-season win against Leeds in Australia. A fine move involving the impressive Paul Pogba and the £45m signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka led to 17-year-old Greenwood’s first senior goal and Ole Gunnar Solskjær said the young forward may even force his way into his starting lineup for the first match of the Premier League season, against Chelsea.

“He’s got a chance of starting that one, definitely,” Solskjaer said. “He’s more than capable and will always be there, in and around the box, creating chances. And I won’t say that’s not a possibility, no, it’s a good possibility. If he keeps going as he does. It’s difficult to keep players out who perform well.

Steve Bruce: the road to becoming Newcastle United’s new manager – video report

Steve Bruce has admitted he faces a ‘huge challenge’ after being appointed the head coach of Newcastle United on a three-year contract.

The 58-year-old quit his job at Sheffield Wednesday and is replacing the widely admired Rafael Benítez, who left St James’ Park last month after failing to agree a contract extension with the club’s owner, Mike Ashley.

The former Sunderland and Aston Villa manager’s chances of success with the Magpies are complicated by Ashley, who wants to sell the club, and fans increasingly venting their anger over the lack of investment and ambition on Tyneside.

Steve Bruce faces tough task at Newcastle but he is used to adversity | Paul Wilson

Bruce’s happiest times were at smaller clubs and he starts his biggest Premier League job as a manager with eyes fully open

Steve Bruce is normally a safe if somewhat unexciting pair of managerial hands, though as supporters of Sheffield United, Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic will attest, he does have a penchant for resigning or leaving to further his career elsewhere. As recently as January he was claiming his 10th club, Sheffield Wednesday, might be the last he would manage, but presumably he always knew that if the call came from Newcastle he would find it hard to resist.

What he does at most clubs is steady the defence, sort out a settled team and begin to make small but significant improvements. Newcastle are certainly in need of someone who can do that but they have just lost an arch-pragmatist and organisational master in Rafa Benítez, and it Continue reading “Steve Bruce faces tough task at Newcastle but he is used to adversity | Paul Wilson”

Football rumours: John Terry to take over at Newcastle United?


This post is by Ed Aarons from Football | The Guardian

Today’s tell-all is weighing up its options

A penny for John Terry’s thoughts. It only took one season in the Derby dugout for his old mucker Frank Lampard to be summoned back to Stamford Bridge for the top job. And that was after missing out on promotion to an Aston Villa side inspired, of course, by JT.

The former England captain has been cutting his teeth as an assistant to Villa’s Dean Smith but must have looked on with a tinge of envy as Lampard was unveiled by Chelsea last week at the age of only 41 – the same age as José Mourinho when he first arrived in 2004. While the Mill has no doubt that Terry wishes the man he shared a dressing room with for 13 years all the best in his new post, rumours that he could be in line to take over from Rafael Continue reading “Football rumours: John Terry to take over at Newcastle United?”

Statement spending can work in the Premier League but for every Virgil van Dijk there is a Paul Pogba or Romelu LukakuMike Ashley is the Premier League equivalent of Captain Rum – the seafarer from Blackadder who runs his ship in a contrary manner to “all the other captains” – though much as it must depress supporters to lose their leading scorer so soon after a popular manager, the bottom line in Ayoze Pérez’s move to Leicester stands up to scrutiny.

Newcastle’s owner knows more about trading than most – he has certainly made plenty of money through his grasp of markets and mark-ups – and, though critics might accuse him of caring for little else, it cannot be denied that raising £30m for a player who cost £1.5m five years ago is eye-catching.
