Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is delighted with his the commitment his players are showing this season.

Bruce came in for fierce criticism following a 5-0 defeat at Leicester in October but his side have responded by taking 14 points from eight games.

"I've been given a wonderful opportunity and I hope I can prove a few people wrong, but there is still a long way to go," he said ahead of today's visit of Southampton.

"We've still got to be a little bit more fluid at the top end of the pitch, but we'll keep working on that.

"The most important thing for me is trying to create a spirit. Since I've walked through the door, yes, we've had two or three poor performances but, all-in-all, I couldn't have asked for much more from them.

"They are prepared to run a million miles and cover the distances like they've covered. So they've bought into what we've tried to do."

Surly Man Utd star left Roy Keane unimpressed during squad address

Surly Man Utd star left Roy Keane unimpressed during squad address

Manchester United legend Roy Keane was left upset with one senior player after returning to the club last week to speak with the squad.

The Mirror says the outspoken Irishman was left unimpressed with a United star, who has not been named, for his approach to the talk.

It is believed that the unnamed player was sat slouched in his chair and bore a disinterested expression throughout Keane's address.

The 48-year-old has not been cute in his views on his former club, often seen exasperated at their performances during his punditry duties on Sky Sports.

Keane was, however, left unimpressed with the attitude of one unnamed star during the talk

Keane is said to have spoken to the players about setting and maintaining high standards in training and on matchdays, having a strong mentality among the group and making the sacrifices required to be champions.

And the talk appears to have done the team good. United have earned two big wins in their last two Premier League games, beating Jose Mourinho's Spurs at Old Trafford in midweek before seeing off league champions and arch rivals Manchester City on Saturday.

Wolves have reached the last 32 of the Europa League and are fifth in the top flight after going 10 games unbeaten as part of their best domestic run since 1972.

Ahead of the trip to Brighton on Sunday, Nuno admitted: "The decisions will come when they have to come but it's clear that we have to bring in players.

"It's not about being busy - it's about anticipating what you need."

Wolves meet Brighton later today.

Chelsea youth coach Cole: Everton found extra 20-30% under Ferguson

Chelsea youth coach Cole: Everton found extra 20-30% under Ferguson

Chelsea youth coach Joe Cole hailed the impact of Duncan Ferguson for Everton's victory over the Blues yesterday.

The Toffees downed Frank Lampard's men at Goodison Park after Richarlison's opener and a brace from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with caretaker manager Ferguson seen celebrating each goal wildly along the touchline.

Cole said: "The first tackle that went in, the place erupted and it just galvanised the whole place. Everybody seemed like they had 20/30 percent more.

"You can talk about Duncan and what he can do... that was it - an emotional message, get them together. There wasn't anything tactical today that was special, it was 11 players just together and fighting for the badge. And that was enough for them to get the win today."
