fans have been reacting on Twitter after Danny Murphy assessed Newcastle’s survival chances. 

Steve Bruce’s side have been on an awful run of form over the last few months, and after picking up just five points from a possible 18, the Magpies have been dragged into a relegation battle

The St. James’ Park outfit are just one point above Fulham, who occupy 18th place, albeit with a game in hand over Scott ’s men.

For quite some time, Newcastle supporters have let their grievances be known over the ’s performances and style of play under Bruce, while several pundits, including Murphy, have openly defended the former Hull City and Aston Villa boss.

However, following their recent slide down the division, the 60-year-old has come under increasing criticism from ex-players and pundits, something large sections of the fanbase have been saying since last season.

Speaking on TalkSport, Murphy said: “I’d be really, really worried as a Newcastle fan,” a sentiment that seems to be shared by the club’s supporters:

“The thing is 90% of the fan base knew this was coming the day he was appointed! We live in worry one horrendous decision to another. It’s been the media who have been brushing over the ineptness the fans have seen from day one.”

“What have the press been doing for 18 months, that’s how long we have been worried for. And we have been telling them that!”

“We were worried when Steve Bruce first brought in but all you media people told us he’s a great

@Barmy2toon

“We have been worried all season but everybody thought we were entitled”

“Been telling you this for months”

“These pundits are getting it. Right at the end. Funny the fans have been shouting this for months.”

@ConwayAdrian

It seems these fans are fully in agreement over their feelings towards Bruce, and the fact that pundits like Murphy have started to come around to their way of thinking has perhaps done little to offer any consolation to the supporters.
