The article claims that Steve Bruce has been given the green light to start strengthening his squad ahead of the 2021/22 season despite uncertainty over the club’s future.
This has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who are not happy.
“I don’t get it. They say Bruce will be backed… yet he has to use the loan market? Surely being backed is saying “There’s £30m to go sign Willock and there is £40m for the rest of your business?” No?”
“Oooooo my mouth is watering at the loan deans and free transfers”
“Summer recruitment with a low budget and loans. Exciting times ahead”
Does this concern you?
Yes, who are we meant to sign with no budget
No, we will find a way
“And the circus goes on”
“Don’t need to see stuff like this on a Monday morning”
“In fairness we gave him £150 million and we got worse, so I wouldn’t give him any more”
Last summer, the Toon managed to snap up three players on free transfers, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see Newcastle go for a similar approach this summer, but this is not what fans want to hear, and many of them are disappointed.
