Newcastle United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest social media post from the Tyneside club. 

This comes after the official Newcastle Twitter account shared a post on their page that contained a video of Toon manager Steve Bruce speaking to the club’s media after seeing his team fall to a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Starting with an easy one, how much did Joelinton cost Newcastle when he swapped for Tyneside?

During his post-match interview, Bruce said that his side were “much, much better” in the second period of the game after a “difficult” first half against the side, who Bruce described being “excellent”

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon fans who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on what their club’s manager had to say.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to Bruce’s comments after the Chelsea defeat? 

“I’m literally at cringe level with how much he bigs up our opponents. Honestly I’d rather him say we were just not good enough. There’s absolutely no drive.” 

@SavMondo

“I kid You not he says the same thing every time cringe-worthy. He’s a million miles away from being a top manager .”

@Tonyc1234

“I’m on my knees get him out of this club”

@LewisRuss1

“Embarrassing”

@StephenMclauch3

“Clueless.”

@StiffUpperLip_

“Time to go Steve. We never wanted you and never will. Please please walk.”

@NUFCLennon

Goals from Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner secured the win for Thomas Tuchel’s side, leaving Newcastle just one place above the relegation zone of the Premier League table.

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that these Toon fans were not happy with what Bruce had to say in his post-match interview after the game on Monday night, with some calling for him to leave the club.

Do you think the club will sack Bruce before the end of the season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how Newcastle fans have called for Bruce to get the sack in previous weeks and months throughout this season, this latest league defeat and their current position in the table seems to have only increased their frustration towards the 60-year-old.

In our view, Bruce will need to start getting the best out of his players so they can pick up some positive if they want to avoid being relegated by the end of the season.
