They claim that Mike Ashley watched Newcastle’s abysmal 3-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion from the United Arab Emirates.
Still, it seems as if Bruce retains the “full support” of the Newcastle owner and that no change will be made over the international break.
It is claimed that the pay-off that Bruce would get if Ashley decided to sack him was a factor, but the deciding factor was Ashley’s loyalty to Bruce.
This post has drawn in these Newcastle fans who are fuming.
“We may as well confirm our 3rd relegation”
“I’m out. See ya @nufc”
Do you think sticking with Bruce was the right decision?
No, he should have been sacked
Yes, he can get us out of this
The Toon were pathetic against the Seagulls and didn’t really show any effort to get back in the game.
There were also claims that many players are amazed that Bruce still has Ashley’s support, and they requested a meeting with Lee Charnley to discuss this.
This post continued to draw in Newcastle fans.
“Joke of a club.”
“What happens next? Fulham win one game and we lose the next nine. That’s what happens.”
It seems beyond bizarre that a manager who has won just two games since the 12th of December still has his job, and Newcastle are firmly in a relegation battle, and in this form, it is hard to see them getting out of it.
