The Daily Mail reporter claims that some of Newcastle’s squad are unhappy with the number of days off Steve Bruce has scheduled.
Since Newcastle played against Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Toon have had Sunday, Monday and Thursday off, while Matt Ritchie and Bruce also had a huge bust-up on the training field earlier this week.
So, it has been a rough week for the Toon, and these Newcastle fans were fuming with this latest claim.
“I’ve been saying it for the past two months! This man WANTS to relegate us!! This is why everyone is dropping like flies.”
“You can see why we struggle to last 90 minutes or even 45 mins in games this season. Clueless Bruce strikes again with a part-time squad.”
“No wonder we are in the position we are and the injuries! If this true is absolutely unbelievable we have went from standards of a royal in Rafa to standards of a scrapyard dog! I shake my head in disbelief!”
Do you think Newcastle should train more?
Yes, ridiculous that we aren't
No, this current method works
The Toon are in 17th place in the Premier League and head to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday with the chance to extend their gap to Fulham to six points before the Cottagers play; however, there are clearly some unhappy players in that squad.
This post continued to draw in Newcastle fans, who had their say.
“Bruce is hopeless but surely the players should be doing something about their own fitness if he’s not listening to them? I think they’re getting off lightly in all of this chaos!”
“It’s shocking the days off he gives the players. Not much prep for the next games.”
“Newcastle is broken fix it soon or I’m swapping my 4 season tickets for David Lloyd health club membership”
“Unbelievable, might as well join the park soccer league.”
“Wow, this is really getting the boot in! Brilliant”
It seems that this latest rumour of discontent has annoyed these Toon fans, who have clearly had enough of Bruce and his antics.
