However, these Toon fans disagree and have let rip on Bruce.
No credit due to Mike Ashley. ?
But if season ended now, I think Steve Bruce would end it in credit.

In every club (except Hull) – he failes after few months/next season. Fans are hate him after he leaves club. Cause he is traitor. Rat. He is bad manager. He blames everyone, but himself. He respected only by journos cause “he is nice to us”.

Other Newcastle supporters, though, do have respect for Bruce.
Who would have thought we would have played 5 cup games and still be unbeaten going into April. Credit to broooseee

If season is null and void happily have him the same.

Good piece Mark and yes bruce deserves an opportunity. Minor quibble, I don’t see evidence of improved communication with fans. When was the last fans forum meeting for example?

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