Mark Douglas has been speaking on the latest edition of the Everything is Black & White podcast about The Chronicle’s recent survey on Steve Bruce and other issues concerning the Toon.

Starting with a relatively recent player. Who is this?

The survey results were emphatic as 95% of Newcastle fans who took part want Steve Bruce to leave the club.

If you look at the Toon’s run of results since December the 12th, this should come as no surprise, and it is staggering that he still retains the faith of those above him.

Douglas claims that Bruce is finished in the eyes of many.

He said: “Steve Bruce will kind of hope that he can turn the tide a little bit, because he will hope that [with players] back, he can get those results and then people will say, ‘look, we still may [not be] happy with you being our manager, but we can accept that at least you’re not harming the club.’

“I think the problem that Steve Bruce has at the moment is the idea that people think his presence is actually harming the club, and that’s the point of no return.”

Do you think Bruce should be sacked?

Yes, it is clear he can't keep us up

TIF Thoughts on Bruce…

The fact that 95% of fans who took part in this survey want Bruce out is a clear message that they believe his time is up on Tyneside.

However, the hierarchy don’t see it that way, and Bruce is even preparing to make a public vow to stay until the end of his deal.

This seems incredible given just how badly Newcastle have performed in recent months, and they are now in real trouble.

Newcastle have a tough set of fixtures but crucially have a two-point gap to Fulham and a game in hand as they look to avoid relegation.

However, it looks like it will be Bruce trying to lead them away from danger despite the overwhelming majority of Newcastle fans wanting him gone.
