Bruce said that he will not be chased out of his job at St. James’ Park by the ‘minority’ of fans that boo him and wish him to leave the club, after he was jeered at following their victory over Sheffield United in midweek.
This post then gathered a lot of replies from Toon supporters who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on these latest comments from Bruce.
So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to these latest comments from Bruce about his position at the club?
“It’s not a minority!”
“If he’s still in the dugout at the start of next season, he’ll be in for a rude awakening. If Ashley stays – give me Dyche. If Ashley sells… well we’d have a bigger pool to pick from. #NUFC”
“I know Bruce has an apparent issue with vocabulary but surely he knows what minority means #NUFC”
“Ahhh of course because the fans are the minority and the owner is the majority….. Makes sense #NUFC”
“He’s in for such a wake-up call next season. I don’t know a single NUFC fan who wants him as manager”
“Bruce basing the “minority” on a 10k crowd. He is in for a shock.”
Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that these Newcastle fans seem to disagree with Bruce’s claim that it’s just a minority of fans that want him to leave the club.
Do you still want Bruce to leave the club?
Given how in a recent poll ran by The Chronicle back in March, 95% of Newcastle fans that voted would like to see Bruce leave the club, this suggests that it’s actually a minority of Toon supporters that think Bruce should stay rather than leave.
Although, with 92% of fans voting that they thought Bruce wouldn’t be able to save the club from relegation this season, which he now has, perhaps the number of doubting fans could have depleted slightly since the confirmation of their place in the Premier League next season.
