Newcastle United: Peter Crouch’s comments on Steve Bruce annoy the Toon Army

Newcastle United: Peter Crouch’s comments on Steve Bruce annoy the Toon Army - Newcastle United

Writing in his column for the Mail Online, Peter Crouch commented “Steve Bruce is proving all his doubters wrong” and as expected a large section of the Toon Army have responded angrily on Twitter. 

Crouch wrote “some Newcastle fans haven’t warmed to him just yet but the one thing this top, top fella deserves is respect for plotting his way through a season that had the potential to be problematic.”

In fairness to Crouch, the Magpies’ head coach has surely exceeded all expectations so far.

Bruce took over from Crouch’s former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez in the summer in a move widely decried by a large proportion of the Newcastle fan base. After a couple of consecutive defeats to Arsenal and Crystal Palace followed by a dull draw against Burnley, Newcastle have bounced back with victories in the FA Cup and Premier League.

Bruce’s Black and Whites have climbed to 13th in the English top tier, eight points clear from the drop zone, and sit only two points behind an Everton side managed by the esteemed manager Carlo Ancelotti (WhoScored).

Newcastle finished 13th in the league in Benitez’s final season in charge of St James’ Park and if Bruce can build on these performances it looks likely the Magpies could equal their efforts last year.

Are Newcastle United now safe from relegation?
