A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from The Chronicle that has relayed comments made by Steve Bruce ahead of the Toon’s game against Fulham.

Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

Bruce was asked if his side can be more attacking, and he responded by claiming that ‘progress is always going to be slow‘ and that ‘you can’t just transform’ the way a team plays overnight, before he finally added that it’s about ‘getting the balance‘ between attacking and defending.

This has drawn the attention of these Newcastle fans who are fuming.

What did these Newcastle fans think of these latest comments from Steve Bruce?

Were you annoyed by these comments?

Yes, he has had long enough

Yes, he has had long enough

No, he needs more time

No, he needs more time

The Toon appointed Bruce in July 2019, yet apparently, he hasn’t had enough time to change his team’s style of play.

If you compare Bruce with Ralph Hasenhuttl, you can see that the Austrian has been with Southampton for just over two years, and in that time, he has established a clear style of play and has the Saints in third place in the Premier League.

So, if the time that Bruce has had is not long enough, what is?

This post continued to annoy many Toon fans.

Bruce has also spent just over £100m on players while he has been the manager of Newcastle, and a large share of that has been on attacking talent, so we can see why these Newcastle fans are annoyed by these latest claims.
