Fans of Newcastle United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed an article containing the comments of Chris Sutton regarding Steve Bruce.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live (via The Chronicle), Sutton claimed that, despite Newcastle slipping to 17th place in the Premier League table – just seven points ahead of Fulham one spot below, who have a game in hand on the Magpies – Bruce “certainly hasn’t lost the dressing room” at the North East club.
The former Blackburn Rovers centre-forward claimed that evidence of Bruce’s popularity with his players can be seen in the club’s recent performances, specifically in the 2-1 defeat to Leeds United when Bruce’s side were “unlucky not to get anything out of the game”, the 2-0 win over Everton when the Magpies were “superb” and in the 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace when Newcastle “had the better chances”.
However, after The Chronicle relayed Sutton’s remarks on Twitter, fans of Newcastle flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be in a state of disbelief regarding the pundit’s comments.
Has Bruce lost the Newcastle dressing room?
So, what exactly did these Newcastle United fans have to say in reaction to Chris Sutton’s claim regarding Steve Bruce?
“Well if that’s a team playing for the manager, god help us when he does lose it.”
‘I remain convinced that Chris Sutton doesn’t have the first idea what he’s talking about.”
“He’s clueless. Just one of his mates.”
“Chris Sutton is a joke! Just like Bruce! #NUFC”
“Suppose you can’t lose something you never had.”
All in all, it would appear that these Newcastle United fans completely disagree with the opinion of Sutton, and, considering the Magpies’ lowly league position, it is not difficult to understand why.
