It was a little bit of a surprise last Saturday when Steve Bruce left top signing Miguel Almiron out of the starting eleven.

That goal ensured all 3 points at West Ham and an excellent 2-0 win to kick off the season.

Tony always plays a certain way and I think he’ll count himself a bit unlucky.” Almiron will definitely have more competition to get a starting place this season, with new signings Hendrick and Fraser fighting for a place on one of the wings.

Steve Bruce explained in his press conference after the 1-0 win against Blackburn on Tuesday night, why he hadn’t started the previous game.

And there will be cases when we have some excellent players on the bench, but that’s one of the things that makes a good team.

So Steve will have some difficult choices to make when everybody is fit, and he’ll be criticized – but what’s new?

This is what Bruce said about Almiron and about the Blackburn win, as reported in the Chronicle today: “Listen, I left him out – I think you all know what I think of Almiron, he’s a manager’s delight.” “I made a call on Saturday because we needed to be able to match West Ham physically, otherwise the game might have been out of sight for us.” “We were winning, and we brought him on, and he might have even scored a couple of goals on Saturday, so Miggy will be fine.” “Considering the problems with the team, I put out with the lack of game-time and the two young ‘uns playing in the middle of the pitch (Barlaser, S. Longstaff), then it was always going to be a tricky tie.
