Newcastle United: Many fans have changed their mind on Steve Bruce after Manchester City draw

Newcastle’s heroic performance against Manchester City on Saturday saw them take a share of the points and also head into 14th in the table by the end of the day. Steve Bruce’s appointment was greeted with disappointment by the Magpies’ fans and he was criticised as recently as their defeat to Aston Villa last Monday, but things seem to be changing.

He’s now taken three points off Manchester United and Tottenham, a point off Man City and ran Liverpool very close at Anfield, so he’s well on his way to winning the fans over. They’re still less than five points from the relegation zone, but their 6.96/10 rating from WhoScored compared to City’s rating of 6.65/10 for Saturday’s game shows they can win points in the most difficult of matches.

Chronicle Live’s Newcastle-focused Twitter account @ChronicleNUFC posted a tweet asking fans to rate Steve Bruce so far this season out of 10, and there were plenty of fans eager to express how they’ve changed their mind on Rafael Benitez’s successor.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:

Newcastle fans, what have you thought of Steve Bruce’s time as manager so far?
