Newport v Newcastle: What has been said?

Steve Bruce says he can take the criticism as he attempts to build a Newcastle team which plays attractive, winning football.

He said: "What I understand now - and this is the most difficult part of all here - is that everything I do is analysed, if I make a substitution, how we play, formation, everything.

"I understand one thing: our performances against Brighton and against Tottenham were nowhere near what we are capable of.

"I accept I get criticism for that, but it's the constant, 'He doesn't know what he is doing, why has he picked this team, this is the way forward, we should be playing like this', blah blah blah. That's the difficulty.

"If you play like we did against Spurs and particularly against Brighton at home, then you're going to come in for criticism and you have to accept that.

"It's a big club, with big expectations and the criticism falls upon you. I have to be big enough to accept it and we didn't play well enough. The analysis of everything you do, that's the difficulty."

On tonight's tie, he added: "No disrespect to Morecambe, but Newport are a far better side. They've had joy in the cup, they're doing well in the league. It's a difficult place to go and play, as many people have found.

"I don't really look at [getting to the quarter-finals] as an achievement. I think an achievement would be getting to a final and then ultimately if you win it, then maybe that's an achievement."
