Supporters of Newcastle United have recently reacted to a report on the potential for Eddie Howe to replace Steve as the Toon’s boss.

A recent report by Chronicle Live, discussed speculation surrounding the possibility of Mike Ashley replacing Bruce at St. James’ Park.

Supposedly, the former Bournemouth manager, Howe, is one of the bookies’ favourites to take the hotseat in the north east should Bruce get the chop.

However, there is also speculation of Howe replacing the struggling at Celtic Park.

This led Chronicle Live to suggest that time is running out for the Toon to try to appoint the former Cherries gaffer and they should ‘make their move’ in the next 24 hours if they want him.

The report was shared on Twitter by The Chronicle and it had lots of talking.

Having been with the club initially from 2008-2011, he returned to the Cherries in October 2012 after a stint with Burnley.

Over the duration of his second tenure at Dean Court, Howe oversaw 355 matches, in which he managed to win 144 and draw 75, losing 136.
