A lot of United fans have flocked to a post from Martyn Ziegler in which he praises Steve Bruce for helping the Toon to a 12th placed finish before taking a swipe at the squad.

1 of 8

Newcastle's all-time top League goalscorer is Alan Shearer but how many goals did he score for the club?

In his post, reporter seems to suggest that the current Toon squad isn’t that good, which has annoyed these Toon fans.

Don’t talk so ridiculous. The squad is fine. It’s the manager that won 2 out of 20 games mid-season that is the issue.”

@ToonMouthTyne

“That squad”, disrespectful as ever to Newcastle. Stay classy as ever. Find me a better front 3 than ours outside of the big 6, can’t be many.”

@Nikos_NUFC

Another example of baseless rubbish being spouted by the media. £110 million spent and clueless until Graeme Jone came in”

Do you think the Newcastle squad is poor?

No, it is a good squad

No, it is a good squad

Yes, it isn't great

Yes, it isn't great

The current Newcastle squad contains Callum Wilson, who has scored 53 Premier League goals in 152 league appearances. The team also contains Jonjo Shelvey, who has made 243 Premier League appearances and played for on six occasions.

These are just two of the experienced squad that Bruce has at his disposal.

Bruce has also been given over £100m to spend on new players, so we can see why these comments annoyed these Newcastle fans.

Wow!!!! What the hell do you mean that squad??? Bruce was left with a top seven defence and then spent 100 million on attacking players!! Oh and throw in Willock who has been on a record breaking scoring run??!! Oh and I forgot about Graeme Jones!! BRUCEOUT”

@BROWEA

Hahaha what?! The squad has got stronger”

@toonmadmag

Behave”

Bruce and his team rallied at the end of the season, winning five of their final eight league games, and they did end up 12th but to say that Newcastle’s squad is poor is wrong.

Therefore, we totally understand why these Toon fans were annoyed at these comments.
