A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by The Chronicle’s chief Newcastle United writer Lee Ryder which issued an update on the rumours of a bust-up between Toon manager Steve Bruce and 23-year-old attacker Allan Saint-Maximin.

Ryder replied to his post with another tweet that included a link to an article from ChronicleLive which explained that talk of this alleged bust-up appeared on a recent edition of The Totally Football Show podcast, audio of which has been relayed on Twitter via @NUFCgallowgate

However, Ryder has dismissed this rumoured feud, stating that the only reason Saint-Maximin hasn’t featured for the Toon since 21st November is due to a calf injury that he suffered ahead of their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on 27th November

Additionally, in his tweet, the journalist explained that the North East club are leaving it to individual players to update on their availability ‘for privacy reasons.’ 

So, how did these Newcastle United fans react to Ryder’s update on this situation?

Many Newcastle fans have been speculating about the truth with regard to this situation in response to Ryder’s tweet, with some fans of the North East club indicating that they don’t believe Ryder, sharing that they think Bruce and Saint-Maximin have fallen out.
