Steve Bruce must start 'electric' Newcastle talent on Sunday, he could tear Spurs apart - TBR View

Newcastle United have an incredibly bright future now their long-awaited takeover has finally been completed.

The Mike Ashley era may have seen the club run well from a financial perspective, which is of benefit to the new owners now, but from a footballing point of view, it was dire.

Not that long ago, Newcastle were once a thrilling, swashbuckling side competing for the title and cups, and playing in the Champions League.

But for over a decade, the Magpies have been a shadow of themselves, resigned to relegation scraps and having to endure two stints in the Championship.

Eddie Howe To Newcastle Is EMBARRASSING

All that is likely to change in the coming years – but in the short-term, Newcastle are still very much in a relegation scrap and must put it right immediately.

Luckily for Steve Bruce, Callum Wilson is back.

The 29-year-old had been sidelined since August with a hamstring injury.

Wilson began the season in great form, scoring in the 4-2 loss to West Ham and the 2-2 draw with Southampton.

Therefore, his injury came at a bad time for Newcastle, who are yet to win this season.

Newcastle ace can “wreak havoc”

But now Wilson is back, Bruce must – and probably will – start him against Spurs at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Martin Keown is convinced Wilson could be a game-changer for the Tyneside outfit against the north Londoners.

“The inclusion of Callum Wilson, if fit enough to feature, will be a major boost,” he wrote in the Daily Mail on Friday.

“He, more than anyone, will benefit from Saint-Maximin’s twisting and turning and creativity.

“Wilson has that predatory instinct and is a proper No 9 who can wreak havoc with Tottenham’s defence.”

St James’ Park will be bouncing on Sunday and the “electric” Wilson will hopefully provide the spark for a winning start to life under the new ownership.
