Newcastle United: Fans rage over latest pundit praise for Steve Bruce

After losing 1-0 to Burnley at the weekend, ending a briefly impressive unbeaten streak which included a 2-2 draw with Manchester City, some supporters haven’t taken kindly to the latest praise for polarising manager Steve Bruce coming from pundits Micah Richards and Kevin Kilbane. 

Have Newcastle's recent wins flattered to deceive?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live via the Chronicle, Richards and Kilbane heaped praise on Bruce following his run so far this season – highlighting the fact that they are exceeding the position they were in this time last year.

However, they also appeared to come to the consensus that they are also playing better football – with these Magpies supporters disagreeing entirely with the notion.

According to a lot of supporters on social media, while the results have been better on paper, the football has been far less attractive to watch at times.

Bruce’s side currently sit 11th in the Premier League table with two wins out of their last five – prompting supporters to highlight their distaste for the manager’s praise.

Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
