All-time top Premier appearance maker for Newcastle, but how many did he make?

The article claims that Newcastle owner is “set to hand” Bruce a new three-year deal after he managed to the club in last season.

This post then gathered a number of replies from Toon supporters who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest news.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this claim about a potential new deal for Bruce?

“I actually feel sick to my stomach if this is to be believed”

@neilTheMagpie

“Please tell me this is a windup…”

@bethmann99

“Liquidate this club”

@jchaytor16

“Protests incoming”

@GreenGeordie9

“This club is a joke. I love Newcastle Utd but I hate everything it’s become under Mike Ashley. Joyless, soulless, striving for mediocrity at best.”

@BurstOfTheStar

“Shambles”

@SwannConor

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s safe to say that these Newcastle fans are not too pleased to hear the that Bruce could be signing a new deal at St. James’ Park.

Given how Bruce has failed to get Newcastle into the top half of the table since he took over at the club and only managed to gain one more point last season than he did in the 2019/20 campaign, it’s easy to see why these Toon fans don’t think Bruce is the right person to take the club forward for the next few years.

Do you think Bruce deserves a new contract?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, given how Bruce still has another year left on his contract at the Tyneside club, we feel that if he doesn’t improve on what he’s done with the team in terms of the number of points they manage to pick up in the season, then the club should look at bringing in someone new instead of offering him a new deal, or they run the risk of stagnating and angering the fans even further.
