Steve Bruce on ‘ridiculous’ and ‘ludicrous’ Anfield events


Newcastle supervisor Steve Bruce has slammed the principles that meant Newcastle’s first equaliser was disallowed in damage time.

Liverpool and the Magpies drew 1-1 on Saturday lunchtime, with a mightily controversial finish.

The preliminary aim ricocheted off Callum Wilson’s arm and ended up within the web – however it was completely unintended and to the bare eye – nothing.

“What a ridiculous determination that’s not to permit a aim,” the Newcastle boss stated, reported within the Echo.

“We’re going to have to take a look at that, these loopy guidelines. VAR is changing into laughable.

“It’s not VAR’s fault, although, it’s the letter of the legislation that we appear to be adhering too a bit an excessive amount of.

“It doesn’t is smart. We’ve simply introduced down a Tremendous League with the opinion of rather a lot and lot of individuals, and now absolutely we’re taking the letter of the legislation too actually.”

“VAR was introduced in for clear and apparent errors, it shouldn’t be in search of a toe right here or a millimetre there. It’s a nonsense and never an important spectacle.

“I don’t assume VAR is the issue, it’s the principles. The handball determination was ludicrous. We are able to’t chalk targets off like that.”

After all, after we acquired that exact let-off, we embarrassed ourselves by letting one other aim in with the ultimate play of the sport.

At that stage, watching, we simply knew what was going to occur – in exact opposite to final season – while you simply knew Liverpool would nick a winner.

We had extra efforts on aim v Newcastle than we did within the 7-0 win over Crystal Palace, however our ending was pathetic, at instances.

And the defensive collapse was predictable and in the end, in all probability deserved. We’re not going to complete within the prime 4, as a result of we’re not going to win 5 video games on the trot.

We’d like the summer time to return, everybody to have a breather, and we will begin once more.
