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’ Park.
Will Bruce stay next season?
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 Premier 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.”
“Really wish that pundits can just say the obvious, Bruce was, is, will never be, good enough, his results & record over 20yrs proves that. This year has shown how poor he is, deluded & full of excuses.”
“These pundits haven’t got a clue about Geordies, they mistake the passion we have to wanting to win the league, all we want is to see our team have some ambition. Before Ashley came we had that ambition but now it’s gone it’s as simple as that”
