    Bruno HAS To Stay

    What a difference his ability to keep things simple and stay calm makes

    Bong did well too

    Performance of the defence with the two "championship" full backs today was as different as the weather compared to a week ago

      The bloke is truly amazing.

      at 38, you'd expect his experience to result in a cool head, playing the game wisely, which he does.

      What really amazes me about him is his level of fitness for his age. He's not even "slow", can easily last 90 minutes, still makes forward runs, still getting stuck in.

      Can't think of another full back in world football who could do this. Even Cafu & Roberto Carlos only lasted until 36/37.

      He had to go off injured though and sadly he is 38. We cant wish for Pele and Maradona either for the same reason.

      Love Bruno but the time is up. He doesn’t feature much now and although can do a ‘cameo’ it is time to move on. Would be lovely if he could stay at the club in some capacity though.
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      Bruno and Bong to stay right! Looked compact, although we were obviously lucky today at times. Good solid back four.

      When you say "can easily last 90 minutes", he went off today with an injury as he has on many occasions when he's started. I love the bloke and hope he sticks around in some capacity but as a first choice defender in the Premier League (if we stay up) I'm afraid he's past it.

      Had a sad feeling today that was the last time I'd see him in the (ugly green) shirt.

      Hope he'll be back for Newcastle, and hope further still there is a position for him at the club somewhere when age finally catches up with him.

      If we go down, we should keep him for another season.
