Many Newcastle United fans have been reacting to the latest updates when it comes to Steve Bruce’s future at the club.
A recent survey from local newspaper The Chronicle claimed that as many as 95% of the fans surveyed (based on 14,000 people) wanted Bruce gone from his position as head coach at the club. It’s unsurprising given the position that Bruce and the club find themselves in dangling above the relegation zone.
As quoted by The Chronicle (29/3/21, 20:17): “Many key figures at the club are now expressing a growing belief Bruce will stay in charge until the end of the season while the manager is believed to have stressed his determination to continue despite intense and sustained criticism of both him and owner Mike Ashley.”
Unsurprisingly, the news has not gone down well with the fans, who couldn’t contain their anger at the lack of change despite the clear evidence that they don’t want Bruce in charge:
“Absolute joke of a situation to be in. Dear me.”
Do you think the club will sack Steve Bruce soon?
No, they will wait too long
Yes, they will take decisive action
It makes you wonder what it would have to take, short of actually dropping into the bottom three, to make Mike Ashley and the Newcastle United board consider making a move.
