A lot of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to respond to a tweet suggesting Mike Ashley will not sack Steve Bruce after their defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday night.
The Magpies’ misery continued after their emphatic defeat to the Seagulls, which saw Graham Potter’s side move four points clear of the Tyneside club with just nine games remaining.
Following the defeat, there had been speculation surrounding Bruce’s future at the club, however, as reported by Shields Gazette journalist Miles Starforth, it seems the Newcastle owner will stick with the 60-year-old manager.
Just hours after their defeat, it was clear to see the anger among Newcastle fans was still high as they flocked to the tweet to voice their thoughts.
“Bruce won’t walk & lose his payoff Ashley won’t sack him and pay his payoff Newcastle United will be relegated as a result Unforgivable #AshleyOut #BruceOut“
“Absurd What are we missing here ?”
“Absolute joke of a club”
“He’s too stubborn to admit he was wrong and sack him!”
“Mike Ashley is pathetic”
Should Steve Bruce be sacked?
All in all, it is apparent to see the Newcastle fans have been left far from impressed by their recent run of form and the reported decision from their owner has certainly not gone down well with many feeling Bruce should be without a job.
