Newcastle United: Fans tear into Steve Bruce following latest comments over job status

Newcastle United: Fans tear into Steve Bruce following latest comments over job status

It’s been a sub-par start to the season from a Newcastle United perspective, picking up just three wins in 11 games, and the manager’s latest comments have riled up a portion of the fanbase. 

Ahead of the Magpies’ next home game against Bournemouth, when asked if he was looking to get to the international break with a certain amount of points, Steve Bruce joked that he was just looking to keep his job by that time.

Despite an impressive 3-2 victory at West Ham in their last game, it was the first time they had managed to score more than one goal in a game this season, with two of those strikes coming from defenders.

Indeed, their problems going forward so far this term have been well documented, with record signing Joelinton striking just once so far, but regardless of their current weaknesses in an attacking sense, that still hasn’t excused Bruce for the ‘self-pitying’ comments made prior to their clash with the Cherries.

Here’s how the fans responded to his verdict.
