A lot of Newcastle United fans have responded to a tweet from Mark Douglas claiming that if the season were to end now, Steve Bruce would deserve credit.

Who is Newcastle's top goalscorer in the league?

However, these Toon fans disagree and have let rip on Bruce.

Other Newcastle supporters, though, do have respect for Bruce.

What do we think?

The piece that Douglas includes in his tweet claims that a 13th-place finish and a run to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup means the verdict on Bruce’s first campaign as Toon manager should be ‘favourable‘.

Does Bruce deserve credit?





The piece says that Bruce ‘has coped pretty well’ in his first season in charge of the Toon.

This is because he has ‘won over the dressing room’, with Douglas arguing that the aim was survival, and if the season were to end now, then that aim would be achieved.

However, the Toon have scored the joint-least goals in the league, and their record signing Joelinton has managed just one league goal all season.

The Brazilian has struggled, though a new video released by Tifo Football shows that this might be because Bruce is using him wrong.

Though overall, despite these problems, we agree with Douglas that Bruce deserves credit.
