Lots of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to vent their anger at the latest comments to emerge from Robbie Savage following their victory against West Ham United on Saturday afternoon. 

In his Daily Mirror column, Savage provided Steve Bruce with advice to leave the Tyneside club this summer in fear of a toxic reception when fans return to St. James’ .

Will Bruce stay next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He said: “Let’s get it straight: Even if his team’s football this season has often been grinding and stodgy, Bruce has not deserved the tsunami of abuse he’s copped on social media.”

The Magpies earned three valuable points on Saturday afternoon which helped them to pull nine points clear of 18th-placed Fulham with just six games remaining of their 2020/21 League campaign.

Newcastle fans flocked to the Daily Mirror’s tweet to give their thoughts on Savage’s article, with many feeling his words to be very harsh on their fanbase.

“Robbie, he doesn’t love the club. If he loved it he would have left months ago for its greater good. He’s had more money than any other manager and taken us from comfortable in mid-table to the doldrums. The fans are right to want him gone whatever way you dress it up.”

The Toon have won their last two games against Burnley and West Ham and drew the game prior against Tottenham Hotspur, which has helped Bruce’s men pull clear of the relegation zone for now.

All in all, it is clear to see the were left far from impressed by Savage’s comments about the Newcastle fans given their poor form up until their last three games.
