Newcastle United: Fans react to shocking Steve Bruce statistic

A recent post on Twitter has circulated amongst Newcastle fans, and the statistics it shows are genuinely concerning. 

The Magpies have had a less than promising start to the season under Steve Bruce so far, despite incredible 1-0 wins against Spurs and Manchester United, with his side currently third from bottom after another loss to Chelsea at the weekend.

What’s even more concerning is Newcastle’s lack of potency going forward, recording the lowest ratio of ‘expected goals’ in the league, and the second-lowest value in the past six seasons after nine games.

On top of that, they also have the lowest value in terms of quality goalscoring chances for any side home and away – with real question marks being placed over the lack of creativity in attacking positions.

Indeed, statistics aren’t everything, but these numbers make for some worrying reading – potentially setting off alarm bells that Newcastle do need to acquire more attacking threats in January if they’re going to stay up.

Here’s how Newcastle fans responded to the news:
